T.H.E. Show Newport 2016 Marketplace
Part 3: Nordost, The Absolute Sound, MrSpeakers, 64 Audio, and MIT Cables.

 

  More cars! Ok, i'm gonna sneak in a kinda old review from 2008 of a few Bentley cars i drove with the Naim Audio system here. And yes, the GTC (was GT but swapped her out) is doing ok here. Bloody damn expensive to fix though, so like 'cheap' used Ferrari and Rolls Royce cars, it is the maintenance that will kill your bank account $1000 a clip (or $4000+ due to a widely known Bentley GT/GTC manufacturer defect the factory refuses to make right on their own or help with repair costs).

 

Nordost was at T.H.E Show Newport 2016 with a wide variety of their impressive headphone cables, Ethernet cables, AC power filters, tweaks and gadgets. Loving the sound of my beloved Audeze LCD-3 with Heimdall 2 headphone cables. Would say more, yet best bet is to see my review here.

 

 

Enjoy the Music.com's partner magazine The Absolute Sound was at T.H.E. Show Newport 2016 as editor Robert Harley presented their incredible Illustrated History of High-End Audio, Volume 2 Electronics ($129.95 each, or both Vol 1 & Vol 2 for $219.95). Volume 1 showcased loudspeakers and Volume 2 builds on this must-have reference book filled with the history of high-end audio manufactures and product designs. "More than a mere collection of resumes, Volume Two: Electronics puts the evolution of high-performance audio into historical context with insightful essays, informative interviews, and expert commentary by the TAS writing team and industry luminaries," says TAS' website. If you don’t have Volume 1 or 2, they are not just highly recommended, you need to buy them now at this link

 

 

Dan Clark of MrSpeakers is here with his prototype electrostatic headphones. How shall i put this? Hmmm, well... Dan is a madman of cans. Sure i could tell you more about MrSpeakers, yet you can read our review of their Alpha Dog headphones at this link.

 

 

64 Audio (was 1964 Ears) were showcasing their A Series 12, 10, and 8 ($1999, $1799 and $1399). These are available both in custom and universal fit and feature the appropriate amount of drivers as per model name. 64 Audio's A12 custom IEM with ADEL modules are my faves when playing the drums. Check out my review of the 64 Audio A12 CIEMs here.

 

 

Rounding up T.H.E. Show Marketplace's section is MIT's Vero HB•AB•29 and the reference version HCA•50ex ($1999 and $2999 respectively). With 3 Watts of Class AB power, the HCA•50ex smartly uses MIT's special Silent Power battery powered supply circuit to achieve a low noise floor. Because you want to enjoy all the music on your Hi-Res Music files, frequency response is from 3Hz to 60kHz . Inputs include 1/8" stereo headphone jack and RCA, while output is 1/4" stereo headphone. MIT also offers an extensive line of cables with specialized network to help shape the sound as you so desire. Enjoy the Music.com has a kinda old (2009) review of the MIT Oracle AC1 power cable here.
