LAAS 2017 High-End Audio Show Report



  The popular mainstream loudspeaker manufacturer Wilson Audio were joined by T+A electronics, Brinkmann Audio turntable, and HRS; with music via MQA. To my ears it sounded sounded super accurate and ultra precise. If you love high-precision this could the system for you.





Heard this pairing at AXPONA 2017 and once again the combo of Merrill Audio electronics mated to German Physik speakers sounds like a winner! Here's the system breakdown at LAAS 2017:
Speakers German Physiks Borderland $36,500
Amplifiers Merrill Audio Veritas monoblocks $12,000
Linestage preamplifier Merrill Audio Christine $12,400
Phonostage preamplifier Merrill Audio Jens $15,449
Turntable VPI Avenger Reference $20,000
Arm VPI Kevlar-wrapped "Fatboy," 12"/3D Printed $1500
Cartridge Lyra Delos $1995
Rack Solid-Tech Rack of Science $3000
Music Server Aurender N10 with 8TB $8,500
DAC EMM Labs Dac2x $15,500
Interconnects Merrill Audio ANAP XLR Inquire
Speaker cables Merrill Audio ANAP XLR Inquire




Gotta give big love to VPI for their astonishing radiant Avenger Reference turntable ($20,000) seen here with their Kevlar-wrapped "Fatboy" 12" 3D printed tonearm ($1500). With vinyl, the Lyra Delos ($1995) gave great sound! Overall, the system produced one of the best 3D soundscapes at LAAS. Musical, with an abundance of delicious detail too! It was more than just imaging, it was.... music. Check our our Review Magazine archive for a variety of reviews of both company's products.
