Tekton Design, Raven Audio – Lone Star Audio Fest 2019

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

Tekton Design, Raven Audio at Lone Star Audio Fest 2019.

For three days and nights in Dallas, Texas, the recently updated Tekton Design Enzo XL tower loudspeakers did their best to run me through the full gambit of emotions. Sometimes trying my patience, I ultimately walked away with fond memories of my Texas roommate.

When I arrived at the Lone Star Audio Fest on Thursday, I was promptly lead to my quarters, where upon I discovered that I’d be sharing my suite with an exhibit system from the show. Raven Audio and Tekton Design had teamed up to show off the newly revised Enzo XL, which in person is more imposing than pictures do justice to convey.… Read the full article

DALLAS (PTA) — Volti Audio is paired this year with Raven Audio electronics, and for the first time I’ve really had the chance to sit down with Volti Audio founder and designer Greg Roberts. After listening to Greg, and listening to Greg’s horn-loaded masterpieces, I’ve come to many exciting revelations about Volti Audio loudspeakers. They are indeed a thrilling window to the past, along with Greg being one of the few people capable of taking horn loaded loudspeakers to new and exciting places, both sonically and in design.… Read the full article

Raven Audio, Two Speakers And An Integrated Amp – AXPONA 2019

By | April 23rd, 2019|Categories: Audiohead|Tags: , , , |

Raven Audio

Raven Audio is so much more than they were just a few years ago. Adding new amplifier models to their lineup and quickly becoming a serious player in the cable and loudspeaker industry is something I don’t even think Dave Thomas (founder of Raven) could have even predicted. If he did, the well kept secret is out now.

For many, this was the first chance to hear the two new Raven Audio towers that will surprise you to no end. Each included foam wave guides, and tuneful low-end.… Read the full article

FLAXShowGuide

To wrap things up, I think the major question of the show was answered. If the Florida Audio Expo was indeed an experiment, I think the results have given us a proof of concept. Attendance at the show was solid from hour-one on Friday through Sunday close. Exhibitors brought their A-game. The efforts from local dealers and manufacturers afar combined to offer up an especially engaging in-room experience. In some ways, all the factors of what make a great sounding and informative listening session were ticked.… Read the full article

FLORIDA 2019: If this was Hollywood, Raven Audio would be a triple threat

ES000200

Raven Audio shows us their famous tube electronics, along with their new loudspeakers and cables. Along with a little help from Mytek Digital. When I first saw Raven Audio in the Florida Audio Expo show-guide listed as the sole exhibitor in Room No. 616, I thought for sure it was a clerical error or that show plans had not quite solidified for Raven Audio in time before media guides went to press. I was wrong.

Walking into the Raven Audio exhibit here in Tampa, was an entirely new experience.… Read the full article

CAF 2018: Legacy Audio, Raven Audio and the Texas Tube Sound

By | November 23rd, 2018|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , |

I have an interesting history with both Raven Audio and Legacy Audio. Back when I lived in Texas, I’d travel up to the Lone Star Audio Fest which was held in Dallas every May. We even exhibited once or twice. LMAF is one of those small regional shows, mostly populated by the DIY crowd—you’ll see a lot of speaker prototypes that are still made from plywood cabinets, with a proud designer sitting nearby and gladly selling the schematics for very reasonable prices.… Read the full article

“Get ready for the new Raven Audio”

Like peanut butter and jelly, I can’t think of a finer synergy in hi-fi on display at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest. Legacy Audio loudspeakers have defined American design and lineage for several decades, but when the most recent years have gifted us the pairing of Legacy speakers and Raven Audio tube electronics, we’ve entered an era where the Legacy and Raven performance value now have to be considered legendary. Consistently one of the best exhibits in my audio show memory, a Legacy and Raven exhibit room by itself is still be worth the cost of admission.… Read the full article

Legacy-5774-1024x643

If you are no stranger to the audio show circuit, then I probably don’t have to tell you that Legacy Audio and Raven Audio have put forth some of the most unique audio show exhibits during the last three years. Theirs is a partnership of recognized artistry, which will ultimately see both companies operating together on a higher plane in the near future.

Raven Audio is still riding high on their newest models that round out the Avian Series family of integrated amplifiers.… Read the full article
