Spatial Audio, Linear Tube Audio, ANTICABLES | AXPONA 2019

AXPONA 2019 Show Coverage brought to you by the LSA Group

Ever since I heard Spatial Audio, Linear Tube Audio and ANTICABLES at the Capital Audiofest last fall, I’ve had a bit of a crush. The combination of these open baffle speakers with the ZOTL amplifier circuitry designed by David Berning create a lucid, warm and detailed sound that seems totally out-of-whack with the relatively low cost of the components. After that first encounter, I told myself that I could easily own that system in another life, one where I was still an audiophile but a little less obsessed about it.… Read the full article

CHICAGO (PTA) — The Wolf Audio Systems room gets my vote for exhibiting the sexiest horn system at the show. Including and beyond the looks of the Sadurni Acoustics loudspeakers, everything in the system was dialed in and on time. The ultra-rare David Berning Siegfried amplifier opened up the entire system to new heights of texture and tone. Ayre Acoustics, Linear Tube Audio, Audience Cables, and Stillpoints did their fair share to round out one of the best exhibits at the show.… Read the full article

Play It Again Audio was showing a system curated from their large inventory of pre-owned high-end audio equipment. Resolution Acoustics was showing us how a well assembled system of acoustic room treatments could take a stereo system from “meh”, to “WOW!”

Buying or selling high-end audio equipment from the second-hand market can raise more anxiety than I’m willing to deal with most days. Here is where Play It Again Audio comes in to play, to ease those feelings, when you are either the buyer or the seller.… Read the full article

CAF 2018: Spatial Audio, Linear Tube Audio, ANTICABLE and a Lesson in Value

By | November 22nd, 2018|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

At last month’s Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, I asked a couple of audio buddies if they’d seen (well, heard) anything interesting at the show. Both of them immediately mentioned the fantastic open-baffle speakers from Spatial Audio, and how they sounded incredible for just four grand per pair. Hmmm, I thought, I’ll have to check them out. But I didn’t—and I was looking everywhere for them. It was the last day of the show, however, and I was tired and my eyes might have been on the blurry side.… Read the full article
