CES 2000

aad 2002

  Designed by longtime and highly regarded speaker designer Phil Jones, new comer American Acoustic Development (aad) were showcasing a complete line of impressive loudspeakers. Seen here is the model 2002 ($2,495) which is an 89 db/w/m sensitive, D'Appolito design stand mounted minimonitor unit.

 

Pininfarina Alainte

As first seen anywhere in the world on the Enjoy the Music.com Web site during our factor of the Pininfarina facility, the Aliante Pininfarina One ($5,200 for the speaker, $995 for stand) is visually stunning. With seductively curved lines and shapes as only great Italian artisans can offer, the Aliante would easily do well in the finest of museums. This two way reflex-loaded design is extremely well built to exacting standards. It also is offered in various colors to match your decor. Of course it comes in my favorite color... Ferrari red.

 

La Luce CS Centoventi turntable by Spj

The new La Luce CS Centoventi turntable by Spj ($19,500) is a low energy storage, direct coupled suspensionless design. Starting with a solid block of acrylic, Spj adds stainless steel weights to increase the total platter mass to an impressive 18 kg.! A direct drive synchronous motor is employed for ultra-precise rotational speed control.

 

CR Developements

CR Developements were showing many of their visually stunning products. Their new Woodham preamplifier (top unit) is truly a thing of beauty my friend. In fact it is so attractive it appears on the front cover of the current Ultimate Audio print magazine! Please believe me, even the images we offer on our Tube Lust Page of the CR Developments products does their true beauty no justice. They must be seen to be appreciated.

 

Edgarhorn Titan and Slimline

Two horn loudspeakers were being shown by horn guru Bruce Edgar. Seen above are the  Edgarhorn Titan and Slimline floorstanding units. The Slimline ($1,800, right loudspeaker) is a three-way design using two 5" drivers in a folded hyperbolic horn that is claimed to extend down to 60 Hz. The Traxtrix horn is employed for upper frequency duties. The Titan ($11,900 copper wired, $18,900 silver wires) is a culmination of over 20 years of Dr. Edgar's work and research. The Edgarhorn round Tractrix horn driven by a 28 lbs. TAD 4001 driver. The midrange is a 30 lbs. TAD 12 while for the highest of frequencies a time aligned super tweeter is used.  

 

Genesis 350 SE

New from the famous loudspeaker designer Arnie Nudell is the Genesis 350 SE ($32,700). This is a special edition unit employing a dipolar line source midrange and high frequency ribbon tweeter array which is claimed to minimize room interactions. The multi-driver servo-controlled bass system can produce frequency down to 16 Hz. The entire frequency response is from 16 Hz to 35 kHz +-3db. These units are extremely well-built and weigh in at 315 lbs per channel! Hand selected South American Rosewood adds extreme visual beauty to this imposing over five foot high design.

 

Gresham Acoustics Opera Sauvage

Gresham Acoustics Opera Sauvage ($15,000) are made of 2.5" thick-density fiber board. A 1" silk dome covers the upper frequency range. The midrange is produced from a 6" high-quality unit while the lowermost frequencies are produced by two 10" dual voice coil woofers of their own design. Multiple internal bracing is used to reduce any cabinet vibrations from adversely affecting the music reproduction while the total weight of these speakers are 245 lbs. each.
