Florida Audio Expo 2020 Show
Audeze, Nagra Audio, And Chord Electronics
It's great to see more headphone exhibitors this year at the 2020 Florida Audio Expo. Audeze made an appearance with their full line of headphones available to listen with a variety of different DAC + headphone amplifier combinations. It's great to have Audeze's full line of headphones all in one place. If you were looking at picking up a pair of headphones from Audeze, like I was but was unsure which can would fit you and your needs, this is the place to make that decision.
It was simple, just pick out a headphone from the stand, sit down at one of the four listening stations, and enjoy! You have your choice between station one, which had a Benchmark DAC3 B ($1699) feeding their HPA-4 headphone amplifier ($2999), while station two had the Chord Hugo TT 2 DAC / HeadAmp ($5495) on top of the Hugo M Scaler ($4795).
Over at station three there was the Nagra Audio vacuum Tube DAC with the Nagra Classic PSU external power supply. Station four was setup with the Burson Audio Conductor 3X HeadAmp / DAC ($2199).
Lastly, Audeze brought their new Mobius wireless headphones. I'm glad that Audeze was able to come out with a quality audiophile-grade wireless headphone. The DSP capabilities of this headset is truly amazing! You really must experience it yourself. A mini 7.1 / 5.1 surround system was within my head, plus with head tracking the stage was always centered perfectly just as if I were in an actual seven channel listening room.
