Audio Note and Audio Federation at CAS 2018

By | August 13th, 2018|Categories: Audio Federation|Tags: , |

The sliver faceplates of the Audio Note components against the black of the equipment racks was an awesome thing to see – as well as hear 🙂

[forgive me. new camera. new to lightroom]

The AN components were the two box DAC: The Fifth Element and Fifth Force, the two box M9 Phono preamplifier and the CDT-Five transport.

*happy ears*

Florida Audio Expo, Tampa 2019

By | August 4th, 2018|Categories: Audio Federation|Tags: , |

The Florida Audio Expo is coming to Tampa, FL this February 8-10, 2019.

[Its a little far away for us, but the prices are very reasonable and it is at an Embassy Suites, so exhibitors get to sleep near their gear in the exhibit room – we always enjoyed this when we were able to swing it in the past.]

The Audio Note Fifth Element DAC and CDT-Five transport

By | July 21st, 2018|Categories: Audio Federation|Tags: |

See and hear both at CAS 2018 – the California Audio Show – Oakland July 27-29th. That’s next week, BTW. 🙂

I was listening to this, the Decca Legends King’s College Choir (Willcocks) but the older non-super digital version. Always sounded pretty good, alwys kind of inspiring – but for the first time I could tell they were singing in English. I always assumed it was Latin or Italian or whatever. What a shock. I have heard this CD for literally 20+ years.

Acapella Campanile 2 loudspeakers, Audio Note, and CAS 2018

By | July 14th, 2018|Categories: Audio Federation|Tags: , , |

We have a new arrival, a pair of Acapella Campanile 2 loudspeakers. We will be showing these at the local show in a few weeks – CAS 2018, on July 27 – 29, in Oakland. Constantine Soo (Dagogo) and Neli will be doing a Facebook Live this Sunday at 2:00pm featuring these speakers. These are the first Campanile 2 to make it to our shores, and look and sound like small versions of the much larger Acapella ‘Apollon’ speakers.

Audio Note in the main listening room

By | July 7th, 2018|Categories: Audio Federation|Tags: , , |

We had this system in the main room for about three weeks, optimizing the setup, until …. the Acapella Campanile 2 speakers arrived! The Acapella speakers are now breaking in… photos forthcoming… but first, we have to salute these under $10K speakers – AN/E Spe He in Olive wood – they whupped the heck out of the place. Our main room has corners! And these extremely efficient speakers easily engaged the room to provide kick ass bass, along with explosive transients.… Read the full article
