Rogers, Wilson, dCS, Transparent | AXPONA 2019

AXPONA 2019 Show Coverage brought to you by Core Power Technologies

Paragon Sight & Sound had a second room that kind of caught me off guard.  Rogers High Fidelity electronics were featured with Wilson Audio Alexia 2s ($57,900).  Here’s the cool part.  Everything was red!  Paragon mated some gorgeous red Alexias to the red of the Rogers electronics and then Garth Leerer added in a Clearaudio Ovation table ($6,200 and up) with a red plinth!  A very distinctive looking system!

The analog rig was really wonderful.  … Read the full article

AXPONA 2019 KLH Rogers

AXPONA 2019 Show Coverage brought to you by Core Power Technologies

KLH Audio is back! And not to spoil the story, but nothing about the new KLH towers looks or sounds like a budget-friendly freshman effort. Working with Rogers High Fidelity amplification, the old adage of “spend the bulk of your money on the speakers” just went out the window.

AXPONA 2019 KLH Rogers

In 2017 KLH is was purchased by former Klipsch Global Sales President David P. Kelley, and is presently offering an all-new line of high-performance, value-oriented stereo, home theater and personal audio products.… Read the full article

Rogers High Fidelity KWM-88 “CORONA” | AXPONA 2019

By | March 18th, 2019|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Something new from Rogers High Fidelity — a bit of old-world/new world. On the one hand, you have a completely hand-wired amp with a massive toroidal power supply — the PSU on this guy is 30lbs, all by itself. And on the other hand, there’s an app. And yes, you can change the volume, change the “mode” (ultralinear vs. triode), or monitor the completely automatic tube biasing, all courtesy of that app.

Cool.

We’ll be looking for this at AXPONA next month.… Read the full article

The Vinyl Revivers bring value to the game, MyTek brings a big apple, Accuphase reminds me of my childhood, and Sonner Audio definitely is the all joining smooth one.

CAF 2018: Harbeth, Rogers Fidelity, Acoustic Signature and the Experiment

By | November 25th, 2018|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

You may have already read about the great mystery in Room 323 at the Capital Audiofest from Eric Franklin Shook of PTA and David Blumenstein from Dagogo. These two audio scribes conducted a sonic experiment of sorts, borne from the idea that something in the sound of this system—Rogers Fidelity 34S1 amplifier and PA-1A phono stage, Harbeth 30.2 Anniversary loudspeakers, Acoustic Signature Double X turntable, Bel Canto DAC, Accusound cables and Wolf Audio music server—didn’t quite click.

Eric approached me first—he knew I was a big Harbeth fan and thought I’d be particularly interested in the changes he and David made to the system.… Read the full article

Fidelis AV, Rogers High Fidelity, Harbeth, and Accusound – CAF 2018

by Eric Shook

The most interesting room in the world.

Okay, maybe not the world, but the show… good possibility. Something strange was going on in Room #323 at Capital Audiofest 2018. Was it as strange or erie as Room #237 in Kubrick’s version of The Shining? No.

On Friday afternoon in the Capital Audiofest universe, there was something amiss in the system of Harbeth, Roger’s High Fidelity, Accusound assembled by Fidelis AV. There was no magic, no real bass to speak of, and the remaining upper ends were wonky at best.… Read the full article

There are over 1,000,000 brands exhibiting here at Capital Audiofest … okay, okay, — I don’t know how many brands exactly, but it does seem like a lot this year. Which makes 2018’s event feel every bit like the “premier show of North America’s eastern coast”, that we often claim it to be. Fear not, as the rag-tag band of misfits from Part-Time Audiophile are here to be your surrogate audio show guide.

Here are some surefire rooms to get you started off on the right foot.Read the full article

CAF 2017: Burwell & Sons, Rogers High Fidelity pull the hat trick

By | December 19th, 2017|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Three times this year I’ve been compelled to linger in hotel room exhibits orchestrated by Burwell & Sons and Rogers High Fidelity. The first time being Axpona where I was drawn in by the classic look of the Burwell horns, but ended up staying way too long for what seemed like an endless supply of great sound no matter the source material. The second time being RMAF where I was drawn to their 65V-1 Class A 25 watt tube integrated that retails for a supremely affordable $4,000 USD.Read the full article
