Q&A with Mat Latour of Nagra

Q&A with Mat Latour of Nagra

What ignited your interest in the high end? Did it come from the music side, family, or the electronics side? I was fascinated by music and sound reproduction from an early age. At age two I was putting my plate upside down and using the knife as a tonearm! My father is an engineer and sang in a choir; my grandmother was a piano teacher; so music and technology were part of our life. What gear made up your first high-end system?… Read the full article

Common Wave Hi-Fi, Harbeth, Nagra, Pear Audio Blue, Shunyata Research, NAD, TonTräger at T.H.E. SHOW 2019

Common Wave Hi-Fi is a unique venture in that it is both an audio showroom and social listening space. Located in downtown L.A., Common Wave also dedicated a portion of its space to function as a record shop along with holding events monthly music events and movie nights. It’s all about reaching out to the larger community interests, while including hi-fi into the mix.

Tune Audio Anima Loudspeaker; Wavac EC-300B Amplifier, AC-2 Conditioner, and PRZ1 Linestage; Nagra CDC and Classic DAC, Crystal Ultimate Dream Cabling

By | June 12th, 2019|Categories: Stereophile|

Eye candy, eh? Tune Audio’s Anima 3-way fully horn-loaded loudspeakers ($58,000/pair) claim 109dB sensitive. THEY certainly were drawing in listeners, to the extent that I had to visit twice before I could get into the room then slowly inch my way closer to the sweet spot.

The Anima horns were not the only expensive goodies in this system, which also showcased WAVAC Audio Lab’s EC-300B SE Stereo Amplifier ($38,000), AC-2 Conditioner ($29,000), and PRZ1 Linestage Preamplifier ($29,500) alongside Nagra’s CDC disc player ($22,000) and Classic DAC ($17,000).… Read the full article

“Do you have anything with female vocals?” I kept my head straight ahead, but slid my eyes sideways to take in the young man who had just sat down to my right while I was listening in the Common Wave room at T.H.E. Show on Saturday afternoon.

The all out assault from YG and Nagra | High End 2019

High-End 2019 show coverage brought to you by Core Power Technologies

This is the kind of rooms that make people visit the Munich show. This is also the kind of room that make some of our readers scream at us, at the industry as a general. The expensive, the huge, the fab sounding ones that only a few can afford.

YG partnered with Nagra and they decided to go all in by renting one of the very spacious corner rooms on the upper floors of the show, the ones you can throw a party in, which they actually did, with exquisite French wines, just to make sure that no-one would pass on their effort.… Read the full article

Nagra HD Preamp, Organic Reference Cables, Kharma Elegance S7 Loudspeakers

By | April 14th, 2019|Categories: Stereophile|

What a difference a change of venue and cabling makes. In the Nagra room at CES, the sound was silvery, glistening, open, and mesmerizing. Here, with smaller Kharma Elegance S7 loudspeakers ($18,000) and mid-priced copper-based Organic Reference cabling that uses a fiber dielectric, the sound was more toned down but no less compelling.

Listening solely to LP, we began with Reference Recordings’ issue of the Chicago Pro Musica performing Stravinsky’s L’Histoire du Soldat. Contrasting colors were satisfying, and the soundstaging impressive indeed.… Read the full article

New Digital From NAD & Nagra – CES 2019

By | January 22nd, 2019|Categories: Audiohead|Tags: , , , , , , |

Wilson Audio Sasha DAW speakers

Two of the digital highlights from CES this year came in the form of the all-in-one M10 NAD streamer ($2,499) and new Nagra DAC X ($64,500). Both releases were securely lodged to the trimmed 29th floor of the Venetian in Las Vegas and made for interesting talking points, even though they clearly target two different markets.

Nagra DAC X

The new DAC updated from Nagra includes a separate power supply and a custom delta sigma chipset. Along with a custom USB design, the Switzerland-based manufacturer decked out the internals with a total of 37 individual power supplies for everything on the inside.… Read the full article
