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

AXPONA 2019 Show Coverage brought to you by the LSA Group

Here’s the thing, and this is the last time I’ll mention my past life on the other side of the industry as an importer and distributor. You see, I was stuck in my room for eight years. I rarely got out to explore and see what else was out there. I never knew about Fern & Roby, or LTA amplification, or a hundred other intriguing brands until I started covering shows for Part-Time Audiophile.… Read the full article

CAF 2018: Marc’s Wrap-Up

By | December 22nd, 2018|Categories: Audio Federation, Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

The last couple of months have been a blur. Just days after I joined the team at Part-Time Audiophile and The Occasional, I was off to Denver to cover the 2018 Rocky Mountain Audio Fest. Then, just a few weeks later, I was driving down to Rockville, Maryland to cover the 2018 Capital Audiofest. Then I’d been home about a week before I headed out to San Diego to cover the debut of the Dan D’Agostino Relentless monoblock amplifiers and YG Acoustics Sonja XV speakers at Alma Audio.… Read the full article

ES003351-1024x691

This is a system I could listen to every day and twice on Sundays. Which is exactly what I did at Capital Audiofest. On Friday, I poked my head in for a listen, Saturday, much of the same. Sunday morning I was there first thing to gather some final impressions of the system and snap some photos when I was called away for an urgent show-going responsibility. So I finally return on for my “twice” listen on Sunday, along with some photos — and I am noticing as the show is winding down, that the Daedalus Audio, Linear Tube Audio, LampizatOr and WyWires room is still rather busy.… 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

Fern & Roby take us on a journey into the wide open bandwidth, while Linear Tube Audio rings in a new era for tube integrated amplifiers, Black Cat Cable crosses our path.

ES003321

Sunday at an audio show is always a little bit slower, a little more relaxed, and a whole lot more “are we done yet?” Many of us on the press side are tying up loose ends, or returning to our favourite rooms to squeeze in another listen. I on the other hand am still clamoring to hear everything I can.… Read the full article
