T.H.E. Show Newport Beach 2015 Report
The Home Entertainment Show 2015
Merrill Audio And Alta Audio


  At the Merrill Audio room at T.H.E. Show Newport 2015 they had their Thor amp and sneak peek at the Cara preamplifier ($4800 and $3500 respectively). In another part of the room was the Merrill Audio Taranis power amplifier ($2500). For front-end duties, the Antipodes Audio DX music Service and Briscati M1 DAC ($6500 and $8995) were put to good use. Merrill Audio makes some mighty fine gear and Enjoy the Music.com bestowed them our Blue Note Award in 2014 for the VERITAS monoblock amplifier. We also have a review of the Thor monoblock you really should check out.

 

So it was not surprising with such excellent gear that the Alta Audio Celesta FRM-2 speakers with matching stands ($13,999 and $1999 respectively) had smooth highs and they played some double bass jazz music for me. It sounded fast, clean and very responsive. The Alta Audio Celest FRM-2 use a very unique transmission line to deliver bass down 29 Hz (-3dB). Don't let their size fool you, as there was plenty of bass filling the room. The custom ribbon tweeter, something i am becoming a huge fan of, produces exceptional upper frequencies. In fact the ribbon tweeters have a rated response up to 47kHz(!). Well done gentlemen and the Alta Audio / Merrill Audio room was one of my faves during T.H.E. Show Newport 2015.
