VAC, VSA Steal the Show | High End 2019

By | June 15th, 2019|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Where did that instrument come from?

The soundstage is huge and background dead quiet.  That instrument just popped out of nowhere.  Wow, that is spooky real.  The timbre is dead on.  I don’t understand a word of this French singer but the jazz is amazing and I have rarely heard a jazz recording sound this good.  This is truly world-class sound.

And that folks are how VAC, Von Schweikert, Esoteric, TechDas, MasterBuilt and The Audio Company created the Best Sound at the Munich show.… Read the full article

AXPONA 2019 Show Coverage brought to you by Core Power Technologies

Occasionally, you get lucky. Like falling into step with vinyl evangelist Michael Fremer as he’s on his way to a do an exploration of some “interesting recordings” on a mega-system. Like many of you, I’ve known of Mr. Fremer for my entire “career” in high-end audio, but it’s been a pleasure to actually make a friend of him — and that (more or less) started several years ago at AXPONA.… 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: The Audio Company, VAC, Von Schweikert, Esoteric, Kronos, Critical Mass Systems, and The Michael Fremer Show

By | March 7th, 2019|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

Yikes…I was six minutes late to the room. Keith from The Audio Company had mentioned a seminar late in the day on Saturday and it sounded interesting but I was too busy covering other rooms and got tied up on the elevator.  So I snuck into a side seat up front near the right channel speaker which was a gorgeous ruby red Ultra 55 from Von Schweikert Audio.  On the other side of the audience was an animated Michael Fremer talking about special pressings he was about to play on the Kronos turntable.  … Read the full article

They’ve done it again! The Audio Company of Marietta, Georgia USA is without a doubt, one of the premier exhibitors of Von Schweikert, VAC, Esoteric, Airtight, Kronos, Critical Mass, Clearaudio, and Masterbuilt products. Jim, Gordon, and Keith take the Florida Audio Expo by “sonic-storm”, and leave many a show-going jaw dropped.

Holding court in the largest exhibit room within the Embassy Suites main hotel, The Audio Company set out to eliminate all the competition by assembling one of the more beautiful looking and sounding exhibits I’ve encountered.… Read the full article

The Audio Company, VAC, Von Schweikert; Sounds Like A Million – CAF 2018

By | November 28th, 2018|Categories: Audiohead|Tags: , , , |

All parties involved are known for bringing their A-game to every exhibit. Showing the ultra-high-end system that debuted here at CAF exactly one year ago, things now sound better than ever, as the year-long tour has benefited from experience. Along with the new VAC Statement 450i iQ Integrated Amplifier (on static display) living up to its every foreshadowed promises recently at RMAF. The main system here at CAF represents what I feel is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

This was probably the only room at Capital Audiofest that could have charged a “special exhibit” admission price during the show.Read the full article

CAF 2018: The Audio Company, Von Schweikert, VAC, Esoteric and The Big Why

By | November 4th, 2018|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

Each time I’ve visited the Von Schweikert rooms at hi-fi shows over the last few years, Damon Von Schweikert and Leif Swanson have upped the ante in terms of presentation, sound and most importantly, the WOW Factor. First of all, I’m not damning them with faint praise, as if back in the day their exhibit rooms were only so-so and they’ve gotten much better. No, we’re talking about a duo who wins award after award, best-in-shows, all the marbles. The fact that they keep outdoing themselves is perhaps troublesome for their competitors, but outstanding for the industry.… Read the full article

by Eric Shook

When The Audio Company of Marietta, Georgia decides to demonstrate what they do, they pull out all of the stops, and bring their A-game.
