RMAF featured entry-level systems at various price points. The $2,500 entry-level system pictured here included ELAC speakers, a Peachtree Audio Decco amp, and a VPI turntable.
The entry-level vinyl system for about $1,000 had Audio Engine HD6 speakers and a U-Turn Orbit Plus turntable.
The entry-level $1,500 vinyl system had KEF Q350 speakers driven by PS Audio Sprout. The phono preamp was a Schiit Audio Mani, and the turntable was a Music Hall MMF 1.3.
Moving beyond the entry-level systems, the PS Audio room with the Focal speakers and subs had some of the best sound at the show.
On A Higher Note was showing Gryphon Audio speakers with their electronics.
Thank you, Fort Collins Audio! You can’t go wrong with Spendor speakers driven by Quicksilver amps with a Rega turntable, digital by Chord and cables by Cardas. It sounded very British and very good.
Show after show, I continue to be impressed by the Ryan Audio speakers.
To me, Davone makes some of the most design-forward speakers on the market, and they sound nice.
