Acoustic Signature Thunder And Harbeth Monitor 40.2


Fidelis Music Systems


  At Fidelis Music Systems, a USA distributor and retailer, they strive to transcend the ordinary by showcasing truly high-end products at AXPONA 2016 in room 336. It all comes down to superior audio, and Fidelis has a longstanding reputation for delivering some of the best sounds into your home. During AXPONA you can hear the impressive Acoustic Signature Thunder ($10,995) that features their revolutionary Silencer Platter 3 design. The Thunder is designed and built for exceptional music reproduction and said to outperform turntables costing much more. A 70mm solid aluminum chassis forms the base of the turntable, on which up to three arm attachments can be fitted for either 9" or 12" tonearms. The 50mm thick platter is driven by its remotely sited motor and AlphaDIG electronic control offers a perfect supply to the motor. The turntable base has been designed for optimum stability; the large footprint of the table generates more stability, to increase the weight concentration at the base of the turntable. The Thunder is engineered to provide exceptional sound, but its form is also attractively contemporary.

At AXPONA 2016, Fidelis will have it fitted with the Acoustic Signature 12" TA 5000 tonearm. An innovative arm tube concept combined with pre-tensioned hybrid bearings ensure that the TA-5000 is a perfect host for any cartridge mounted. The TA-5000 will perfectly guide the cartridge in the groove. Enjoy the Music.com's reviewer said, "Bottom line is that I must admit that the Thunder turntable with three motors is an amazing bit of analog kit. It combines the best qualities of idler turntables and mass-loaders. It delivers vivid, dynamic, precise, and rich sound. Such a set of qualities rarely describes a single device. It is quite expensive ticket to high-end audio world, but a real one worth your time and consideration. " You can read our full review of the Acoustic Signature Thunder at this link.

Fidelis Music Systems will also have loudspeakers by the long-respected UK manufacturer Harbeth. Founded in 1977 to bring the BBC's pioneering loudspeaker designs to the serious listener, today's Harbeth speakers are the product of what is said to be the longest running science-based loudspeaker program ever undertaken. Crafted around a genuine engineering co, a Harbeth delivers accurate and involving sound at home or in the studio. Every Harbeth is hand assembled and individually tested in Linfield, England


Harbeth Monitor 40.2 AXPONA 2016


The Harbeth Monitor 40.2 ($15,695) redefines what is a top-notch reference loudspeaker. Built on the success of the multi award-winning M40.1, this new generation is the biggest leap forward in sonic supremacy since the design's launch in January 1998.

More efficient, more adaptable to a wide range of listening environments, perfectly balanced and more transparent and engaging, the M40.2 takes the Harbeth sound to a new level. With its mesmerizing and addictive soundstage, Harbeth's reference monitor produces a grand, dynamic and unforgettable sonic experience – far beyond conventional loudspeaker listening. Harbeth's Monitor 40.2 is a special three-way vented design featuring their 300mm Harbeth bass unit, 200mm RADIAL2 midrange and 25mm Ferro-cooled soft dome tweeter. Frequency response is from 35Hz to 20kHz and it presents a 6 to 8 Ohm impedance. Rear connectors are a pair of 4mm gold-plated binding posts for wires or plugs. Dimensions are 750 x 432 x 388mm (HxWxD) and it weighs 83 lbs. The truly lovely cabinet is available in cherry, eucalyptus, rosewood, or tiger ebony finish.
