CES 2000

PHY-HP KM 30

  High-sensitivity dudes unite as French company PHY-HP offers many "full range" single driver and also a coaxial design. Seen above is their KM 30 uses a 30 cm full-range speaker with time aligned centrally mounted paper cone tweeter. The sensitivity is rated at 97 db/w/m and comes with a lifetime guarantee. Alnico magnets are used while the main driver uses no crossover to impede with the purity of the music.

 

Bel Canto Design, makers of single-ended tube amplifiers for years has now changed their tune! Offering their new EVo200.2 ($2,150) digital amplifier based on "Class T" technology, proprietary DSP algorithms to control the digital switching to insure low out-of-band energy. The DSP compensates for the inherent output switching imperfections. This is claimed to yield a more accurate signal output. Frequency response is claimed as being from 1 Hz to 80 kHz with only 1% THD. Power output is 120 watt into an 8 ohm load. Both balanced 9XLR) and unbalanced (RCA) inputs are provided for. They are also offering a new upsampling DAC called the DAC 1 ($1,295). Dither is added to the CD's 16-bit signal stream and is claimed to lower the noise floor by 40db.

 

Seen above is the Raudio Chadwick ($7,880) floorstanding transmission line loudspeaker. An 8" Vifa woofer is mated with the Seas/Vifa 1" tweeter to produce a frequency response from 30 Hz to 20 kHz. Sensitivity is 90 db/w/m and comes in various finishes such as Rosewood, Teak, Ebony, Walnut or other woods upon request.

 

Michell Engineering, the great turntable folks, are debuting their new ORBE SE ($3,500) turntable. By eliminating the costly Plexiglas base of their popular Gyro SE, they can offer the new ORBE SE for $700 less. They claim to have also improved the music reproduction qualities of the unit through using a single ball point three point suspension.

 

Reimer Loudspeakers

Seen above is the complete line of loudspeakers from Reimer Speaker Systems. From their small two-way stand mounted monitors called the McCullough ($2,295 per pair) to their large floorstanding Tetons ($6,995 per pair). The Tetons are very highly sensitive at 94dB/W/m. it employs a three-way, five speaker design consisting of one 1 1/8" silk dome tweeter, two 5.5" poly cone midrange drivers and two 8.75" isobaric chamber loaded woofers.

 

This Lother-Voight based speaker was providing fast, clean music reproduction within the ReTHM showroom. ReTHM was proudly showing their unique cabinet design which is claimed to be 97 db/w/m. This special cabinet design is said to fully eliminate the speaker back wave from bouncing back and interfering with the drivers movement. ReTHM believes the use of special angles and curves within the speakers greatly reduce secondary cabinet vibrations.

 

Within the Sony SACD room were new SACD players by other manufactures such as the Phillips SCD2000 (top) and Marantz CD-1. Neither of these units offered digital output and only the Marantz offers unbalanced (RCA)  and balanced (XLR) output. No prices were given. 

 

Classic Audio Reproductions, the folks who specialize in reproducing the great designs from our audio past, yet with modern improvements, had their T-3 Project ($8,950) on display. The T-3 can be loaded with all T.A.D. drivers such as the 15" Alnico woofer, T.A.D. TD-2001 1" throat midrange driver and ET 703 tweeter. i love their retro look!

 

Tenor Audio 75

Going from retro to state-of-the-art is the new eye candy, drop dead gorgeous, unbelievably sensually curved Tenor Audio 75 integrated, remote controllable amplifier. Hmmm... where to begin. Well, these monoblocks are fully 3D computer modeled and then aluminum cast constructed. Three variable and one direct input is provided for. The wireless remote can control all functions of these units including the ability to change the output phasing. In fact due to this monoblock design, you can change the phase of just a single channel if needed! Their patented "Optivol" volume control is a purely resistive stepped attenuator using no contacts, no relays and no volume chips. The chassis are hand polished and coated. The tubes are servo biased and therefore require no user adjustment for ease of use. Before i forget, power output is 75 watts via four Russian 6C33C output tubes with a frequency response of 4Hz to 100kHz.

 

Thorens TIA 2300 integrated amplifier, TRT 2300 tuner and TD 190 three-speed turntable.

Seen above is the Thorens TIA 2300 integrated amplifier, TRT 2300 tuner and their new TD 190 three-speed turntable.
