Now here to demo, in no particular order:
-Funk Firm LSD and Gett2! turntables....can I just say now I love them, they're all that I was hoping for from Arthur and more...priced at $3450 and $1195 for the versions shown here at the Haven
-Well Tempered Lab newest version of the Amadeus, the Amadeus Jr. a bit of a redesign, similar to the Simplex 2 with no visible ball cups/footers, on/off switch in the back, a tad smaller than the original Amadeus but not as small as the Simplex 2. Priced at $2950
-the latest cables from Atlas, from Scotland....the Mavros line is what I have.
-new rack from Lateral, of England, the Cadenza....a build a shelf approach, really nice sounding. This is their starting model. Love it...below the Box Furniture and above the Quadraspire in musical terms. Earned a "worth the money" from a local...$475 a shelf/set of columns
-also from England, the Whest 40 phono stage. This fella is a doozy, very adjustable gain and loading for moving coils. It's one I would use on its own instead of flipping to mm and using a step up. $6000 I can remember when I had the $12K ARC REF 2 phono...this is better
-the Weiss DAC, the 502, is sounding better than ever...it does so much that I still have yet to play with all its features....but musically it is a winner....$8950
-the Jadis Orchestra Black, as you may have seen mention/photo of earlier, continues to impress. It is one heck of a 40w tube integrated...It's becoming my go to for a great many speakers and late night listening sessions....$4500 another newbie here that I think shoots way about it's price point.
-and last but certainly not least, I'm typing fast so my chocolate sundae doesn't melt before I get to it....I have now what I consider the best sounding power conditioner, yes, from me, who usually rolls eyes at such things....the best sounding I have heard so far....the Puritan Audio line. 3 models here, the PSM 156, the PSM136, and the 106DC strip......$2300, $1600, and $1190...they are flying out the door. And Puritan makes some very different and very very affordable power cords...which I'm in the process of evaluating now. You must audition these power conditioners if you're in the market....my only real take away from them now is toss those Shunyatas away! bleh
-and if you haven't seen the British green color of the Sugden faceplates, you really should come have a gander. They're marvelous! Sometimes muted, sometimes shiny, sometimes almost a grey sheen, then clearly switch to green. That with silver knobs is the way to go! Good job, Patrick and
-and one last shout out to the newish Dynavector 10X5 LOW....$750...it's been here for a bit, but after hearing it on the Funk Gett2, it is clearly hitting on all levels...stomped a recent Hanna comparison. LOVE THIS CARTRIDGE.... musical and FUN! I predict right here that this will be a very big seller....
Schedule your appointment now....no mask required if you've had your shots (no, not the Four Roses kind) otherwise be civil and mask up....see you soon....
