Auditorium 23 – Hommage a Ken – This gorgeous speaker, which combines the Line Magnetic replica WE755a with a complex cabinet designed by Ken Shindo, (and used by A23 with permission), produces a spectacularly natural, seamless sound.
Vinnie Rossi – Two of my demo pieces are now for sale:
L2 SE preamp – The first thing you’ll notice, besides the sleek industrial design, is that there are two wire mesh chimneys protruding from the top. They protect the pair of 300Bs, (or other DHT – directly heated triodes.) Our demo model is complete with optional phono (3 inputs!!) and DAC modules installed. It provides remote control of input selection, volume, balance, mc cartridge load (x2, separately stored), phase and display.
L2i SE – The most stunning integrated amplifier I’ve ever experienced, combining the features of the L2 SE preamp above and a 100 w/ch MOSFET amplifier into essentially the same footprint with fantastic results.
Originally $18,995. Demo with 10 yr mfgr’s warrantee: $12,500.
My demo Aqua DACs are now on SALE. All are in excellent condition. The original cartons are not available. Photos available on request. They include:
La Voce S2 – Silver faceplate – Originally: $2,995. Demo: $1,499. Sale pending.
Formula xHD Optologic – Black faceplate – New: $17,000. Demo – $9,500.
RETHM MAARGA (2nd generation) – Rethm has just updated the Maarga model, so my demo pair have got to go. They come with original packaging and are generally in excellent condition. One foot has come loose due to being shipped with it mounted. I’ve re-mounted it with double-sided tape, per Rethm’s advice. Originally $10,750. Demo: $6,000. Due to a recent housecleaning snafu at the shop, no packaging is available. They must be picked up.
RETHM BHAAVA – One demo pair of the entry level Rethm, full range + powered subwoofer speaker, already a bargain new, is now available. Originally $4,750. Demo: $2,500. Due to a recent housecleaning snafu at the shop, no packaging is available. They must be picked up.
