Introducing a new two-box solution to something that wasn’t a problem seems kind of silly at first. The single box reference version of Innuos’ digital-everything box named ZENith Special Edition, now gets the Statement label, a second chassis, and inside all of the refinement you would expect from a no-holds-barred design. This however, is a prototype, which may be close to what the final production model is to look and sound like, with possibly a few minor tweaks still ahead. 

What is new in the ZENith Statement is an entirely new double-enclosure linear power supply, along with a new power-supply design created in partnership with Dr.… Read the full article

Looking at price tags at audio shows quickly can start your head spinning. Yes, this hobby is called the high-end, but really?

That’s why I always enjoy finding rooms where the rig sounds great, but might not require a second mortgage. One of those systems at the Los Angeles Audio Show was put together by Springfield, Virginia-based distributor Well Pleased Audio Vida.

Hypnotic dials.

Have you ever been to a rock festival and started imagining your dream lineup in a hoped-for ending jam? What would it sound like to hear singer X with guitarist Y and drummer Z?

laas3Thoughts similar to that pop into my head as I approach each major audio show. You can never tell which brands are going to band together. Some companies tend to have long-term personal friendships or at least business ties that result in them making music together at almost every event, where others seem to change partners frequently.Read the full article
