LA Audio Show 2017: D’Agostino muscle, Audio Research glow, YG finesse – an intoxicating mix

Hypnotic dials.

Have you ever been to a rock festival and started imagining your dream lineup in a hoped-for ending jam? What would it sound like to hear singer X with guitarist Y and drummer Z?

laas3Thoughts similar to that pop into my head as I approach each major audio show. You can never tell which brands are going to band together. Some companies tend to have long-term personal friendships or at least business ties that result in them making music together at almost every event, where others seem to change partners frequently.Read the full article

CES 2017: Nagra and YG Acoustics keep the balance

nagra-1

The Classic looks of Nagra’s, well, Classic line always stops me cold.

There’s always an expectation on my part when I walk into a room featuring electronics by Nagra of Switzerland. It’s sort of like going to the pub: you know there’s good beer, food, and friends there, so you have an expectation of a fun time. Same goes for the Nagra kit. At CES this year the steady-handed Swiss had paired up with YG Acoustics out of Arvada, Colorado, and were driving a pair of Hailey 1.2 loudspeakers with Tara Labs cabling throughout.… Read the full article

CH Precision’s powerful fist wears a velvet glove for YG Acoustics

ch-yg-1

A refinement, and scale which few systems can attain.

When DVL Audio distribution from Toronto asked if I was interested in hearing the Swiss-designed, and made CH Precision electronics driving American reference loudspeakers from YG Acoustics, I answered absolutely. They arranged for a sweet demo session to take place in Vancouver at a local dealership, so I grabbed my camera, and headed out.

David Chan of DVL Audio.

The setting was a familiar one for readers of my Vancouver listening sessions, with Element Acoustics playing host, but this time Lawrence Lock, and David Chan of DVL were running the show, which included a gorgeous stack of CH Precision reference gear driving the massive, and elegant YG Acoustics Anat III passive tweeter-mid/active-bass loudspeakers.… Read the full article

Funny thing. You’d think that there wouldn’t be any enormous mountaintops in Newark, New Jersey.

And you’d be wrong….

Let me explain.

Bill Parish of GTT Audio

A couple of months ago I got an invitation from Dick Diamond of YG Acoustics, Bill Parish of GTT Audio, and Joe Kubala of Kubala-Sosna to attend a special event at GTT Audio’s HQ in Newark. It turns out that Yoav Geva…the “YG” of the company name…has been working on a statement loudspeaker, behind our collective backsides.… Read the full article
