T.H.E. Show Newport Beach 2014
The Home Entertainment Show Report, Part 2


  Roger's High Fidelity amp EHF200 MKII ($15,000) is a precision hand-built, Class A vacuum tube amplifier equipped with the powerful KT150. There is a subwoofer output and remote control for home theater and bass-o-philes. Internally, the circuitry is carefully hand wired and uses all discrete components that meet or exceed aerospace specs. The aviation-grade chassis is made with stainless steel while the rear gold plated RCA connectors and Furutech rhodium plated binding posts round out this design. The tube complement is two EF86, two 12AX7, and four KT150. It produces 112 Watts per channel.

 

Always delivering a great bang-for-the-buck is Audioengine. By now everyone knows how great Audioengine products are for the money and we here at Enjoy the Music.com are giving away their in impressive D3 24-bit USB DAC! You can entire for your chance to win this great prize at this link.

 

Audioengine’s new HQ is a high fidelity Bluetooth receiver ($169) that uses apt-X with the AK4396 DAC, so it upsamples to 24-bit. Output is stereo RCA for ease of integration, yet it also has a digital TosLink optical output too.

 

LKV Research Veros One ($6500) aims to be "a phono preamp that provides the ultimate in musically engaging and accurate LP reproduction in a convenient to use design". As the first in LKV’s top-of-the-line Veros series of components designed by Bill Hutchins, the Veros One takes the performance of their 2-SB to a higher level with premium parts, innovative RIAA circuitry, and extremely quiet gain blocks. They have revised the power supply regulation and filtering for the utmost of performance even into low impedances. The result, according to the company, is a phonostage that removes the remaining veils between the listener and the music encoded in the grooves of the LPs. There are user convenient panel mounted switches to select among 10 cartridge loading options and two equalization curves.

 

LKV Research Line One ($3500) high fidelity audio preamplifier is also designed by Bill Hutchins and features two balanced XLR and four single ended RCA inputs. Outputs are two balanced and two single ended. There are three levels of user-selectable gain consisting of 4, 10 and 16 dB. The volume control is via an Elma stepped attenuator and there is a front panel Mute switch too. The LKV Research Line One is a dual mono design using zero-feedback, fully differential (balanced) Class A amplifier circuitry executed with discrete, hand matched JFETs.

 

PBN Audio's new Groove Master Direct turntable ($35,000) is a special direct drive unit made by VPI Industries with SME tonearm. Ebony wood with stainless steel accents look incredible. They can configure the turntable for any tonearm. It handles 33.3 and 45 with a highly precise motor controller.

 

ZenSati new entry-level Authentica cables are based on silver-plated copper and air dielectric. They used a 19 meter(!) interconnect here at T.H.E, Show 2014 to prove that even at such long lengths the cables are very transparent, non-microphonic and well-shielded. As their entry level it is €3500 for 1 meter length.
