RMAF 2007 - Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2007 Report / Coverage
RMAF 2007
Friday Page 2

  Dodgin' and bobbin' the knob is the Joule Electra VZN100 ($19,000 with Music Wood base). Each knob adjusts, singularly, the six output tubes plus you can adjust the driver tube and feedback setting. The Russian tubes operate in Class A single-ended triode mode and each monoblock produces 100 watts. Joule-Electra Stargate amplifier review can be seen by clicking here.

Redpoint Audio Design decided to make a Model D special edition ($25,000) in 3D Violet Light over a high polished aluminum finish turntable. The cryo'ed Teflon platter provides air and midrange clarity according to designer Peter Clark. The Helius Omega MK. II arm is also shown ($5000).

Daedalus Audio had their Reference Series being driven by Art Audio amplification (Art Audio review can be SEEN HERE). The larger speaker is their Ulysses ($8800) and the one next to it is their DA-RMa ($4450). Bother share the same basic components and similar crossover design while the Ulysses adds double the drivers and are mounted in an D'Appolito design. The woodwork was extremely impressive and come in solid cherry, ebonized walnut, maple oak or walnut. Pay attention single-ended tube fanatics, as these units are rated at 97 and 95.5 dB/W/m sensitive respectively.

Audio Note welcomes 2007 with the new DAC 0.1x ($1500) that has both single ended RCA digital input and USB input for use as an external computer DAC. In true Audio Note fashion it has zero oversampling, no digital or analog filtering and uses the 6111WA subminiature dual triode tube. And yes boys and girls, Audio Note felt the RMAF 2007 event was the place for the world premiere of their 0.1x DAC. Remember, you saw it here first! As for reviews of Audio Note gear we have reviewed... Audio Note Kit 1.2 Vs. ART's Highly Raved DI/O comparison is here, Audio Note DAC Kit 1.1 vs MSB Gold Link DAC review is here, Audio Note DAC 2.1x Signature review is here, Audio Note Kit 1 amplifier here, Audio Note DAC 5 here and Audio Note AN-E/Lexus versus the AN-J/SPx loudspeaker shootout is here.

The Disc Master by EAR ($17500 plus $2500 per tonearm) is a belt driven sub-platter. Note that the belt is geared to ensure zero slippage. The three-point suspension holds the platter above the sub-platter with a gap between them. Therefore they do not touch each other and, instead, it is magnets in each platter that 'drives' the units in sync.

Balanced Power Technology was touting HD digital recordings with a prototype BPT 3-way floorstander, modified Northstart 192 CD transport, TacT amplification and various BPT wires and accessories.

Making its appearance at the RMAF 2007 is the Jolida JD 302B integrated amplifier. As for Jolida reviews, we have plenty for you to enjoy including the Jolida's JD 300B review as seen here, Jolida 202A integrated tube amplifier here, Jolida 102B integrated amplifier here, and Jolida JD100A CD player review is here.

 

The Lotus Group was displaying the D5NF driver; which is looking ever so artistic in this photo… like a blooming Lotus flower.

Sennheiser had various headphones for all to try including their HD650, HD600, HD555 and PXC350. Our review of the Sennheiser HD600 and Stefan AudioArt Equinox cable can be seen by clicking here.
