Copenhagen HighEnd 2018 Show Report

Copenhagen HighEnd 2018 Show Report
Show Coverage By Clive Meakins

 

 

Lyd Producter were showing a system comprising some very desirable kit. The speakers were Living Voice Auditorium Avatar-R3, the audio server was a Trigon Exxceed.

 

 

 

The record deck was the new sleek Dr Feickert Volare, this was fitted with a Jelco TK850S tonearm with an "easy VTA" adjuster from Portugal.

 

 

In common with a few other exhibitors the phono stage was the excellent and high flexible EAR 324. If only other phono stages offered so many settings it would be a cinch to optimize Decca/London and Audio Technica MM cartridges (amongst others), I find adjustable MM impedance loading to be a rare but useful optimization.

 

 

Amplification was in the form of the CODA Technologies CSiB V1 integrated kicking out 150W Class A/B into 8 Ohms with the first 8W being Class A.

 

 

Next up was a system including Roksan, Mytek Liberty DAC, Parasound, Manley Chinook phono stage and some very lovely UK designed Russell K Red 100 speakers. The Red 100 specification states they have in-room bass down to 30Hz, their crossover is second order.

 

 

 

 

Hartvig Audio used a lot of EAR equipment with the Acute 4 CD transport, DAC 4, 868 pre-amp, and 534 power amp. Harvig's own turntable, the Signature TT looked delicious in red. The 14 kg platter is aluminum and acrylic.

 

 

PMC had the MBD XBD SW speakers playing very eloquently. They run for 20Hz to 25kHz, have a sensitivity of 93dB/W/m and are 4 Ohm. Big and impressive. Amplification was by Manley.

 

 

The system in the Taga Harmony room had their TTA-1000 60W KT88 Class A amplifier at its heart, priced at 15,990 Danish Krone (DKK). The Taga PF-2000 power filter was in use, priced at 2,490 DKK. Digital was provided by the AURALiC Vega G2 Streaming DAC. The speakers were Taga's own Diamond F-200 which are three-way, 6 Ohm with 91 dB/W/m sensitivity. They weigh in at 56kg each so there's some serious structure there! 20% of the enclosure is allocated to the mid and tweeter with the 80% being a dedicated bass chamber. The speakers are rounded at the rear, aside from being attractive this bring additional rigidity and reduces stand wave issues.

 

 

I was very impressed with the engineering and sound quality of the Warsaw based Taga Harmony products on show.
