RMAF 2017: The Pure Audio Project, larger than life

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

Ze’ev Schlik is the founder of the Pure Audio Project and he is really on to something. Ze’ev is countering the often negative or fruitless experiences that many audiophiles looking to enter the DIY segment of the hobby encounter. As we all know, the internet is filled with: DIY forums, project videos, and theoretical discussions. Half of them spurious at best in terms of delivering the affordable sonic wonderland they promise. However, the demand for customizable, build-it-yourself audio projects remain. 

What the Pure Audio Project has done to change the DIY landscape is two-fold: 1) offer reliable speaker components and designs associated with some of the best manufacturing available, and 2) offer a truly DIY experience to customers without the risks often associated with garage designed plans.

RMAF 2017: Voxativ single-minded in pursuit of great sound

It’s almost become a cliché for reviewers to say a loudspeaker’s drivers “speak with one voice.” I’ve used that phrase myself at least once in my Rocky Mountain Audio Fest coverage this year, and I’m only a dozen stories in. I am about to use it again, however, and I can’t really keep from it.

This report, you see, is about the Voxativ exhibit in Denver. Voxativ speakers do a particularly outstanding job of presenting a cohesive image, likely because they have a single point-source per channel handling most of the frequency range.… Read the full article

RMAF 2016: Fern & Roby, Voxative Ooze Craftsmanship

I first took closer notice of Fern & Roby earlier this year after seeing a segment on the company during one of my frequent “How It’s Made” marathons on the Discovery Channel.

While the series usually spotlights manufacturers that make common consumer items such as clocks, hard-drives and automobile engines, this particular report focused on a Virginia-based furniture company that had decided to put its engineering know-how and experienced craftsmen to work on a high-end turntable.

Voxativ, Fern & Roby finally come together – RMAF 2016

by Rafe Arnott

The Fern & Roby Audio room (here paired with Voxativ) was one that I was looking forward to hearing when I arrived in Denver at the Rocky Mountain Audio Festival on Thursday. Unfortunately, a number of technical difficulties that were first explained as the cartridge, and then the tonearm kept me from hearing this manufacturer until late Saturday afternoon (after three attempts to hear it). Then finally, the Montrose turntable was playing music. I’m not sure what exactly the problem was, but I’ll admit that the wait seemed to be worth it to hear what this “designer turntable” was capable of when it came to making tunes sing and not just sit there and look pretty.… Read the full article
