High-End 2019 show coverage brought to you by Core Power Technologies

Thöress has my highest approval rating for making solid, no-frills amplifiers and I never complain when being asked by our publisher to cover their room.

One of the most important rooms of the show, if you count in factors like heritage, built quality, price and last but not least, musical connection, the Grobel room with a stack of Jadis tube amplifiers including the JA 500 monos with external power supplies, the gorgeous Serblin Ktema speakers and an impressive analog front end, courtesy of DaVinci Audio Labs from Switzerland. Add a phono stage by Thoress and power solutions by Verictum for a deeply sensual, intimate and completely fatigueless session.

By Richard H. Mak

Just like every other year, Tri-cell Enterprises always have the most number of room.  This year, I counted 4 but I was told there was 5.  The room that caught my attention featured the Acapella Atlas horns (CAD$ 118,000/pr).  The system consists of a Transrotor Orion Reference FMD Turntable (CAD$10,000), a Reed 3Q 12″ Macassar Ebony Tonearm in a Palladium Satin finish (CAD$7,200), a Goldnote CD-1000 CD Player (CAD$10,000), a Thoress Phono Stage (CAD$ 13,750), a Aesthetix Janus Signature Preamp (CAD$ 15,000), and an Accustic Arts AMP II Mark 2 amplifier (CAD$ 18,150).

Fuuga LOMC cartridge (one of my faves).

Brian DiFrank of Whetstone Audio based out of Austin, Texas knows a thing or two about being a gracious, and generous host (Thanks again Donna for those BBQ sandwiches!), but he knows even more about what it takes to put together a kick-ass sound system. This was DiFank’s first time “riding the bull” at the rodeo as an exhibitor, and he stayed on for well past the required 8 seconds.

Funny, smart, and a crazy-deep selection of vinyl to mine for hits: Brian DiFrank.
