  Roksan, you don't have to put on the red light... Ah yes, the joys of music. And speaking of music, the Roksan Radius 5 turntable in high gloss walnut ($1,300 including tonearm) has a custom synchronous motor with precision solid aluminum alloy pulley. A three point decoupling design from the plinth reduces outside vibrations from negatively affecting the needle-groove interface. Meanwhile the NIMA tonearm is made with a solid aluminum alloy tube. The counterweight is decoupled and mounted off center for ease of Azimuth correction.


Like the oldest profession in the world, T+A, well, their turntable has been around for a while. Ok, well, not that long as Enjoy the Music.com™ gave the world a first glimpse of T+A's new G 10 within our Milan Top Audio & Video show report back in September 2003.


Amphion's Krypton large floorstanding loudspeaker ($16,500) has a pair of 8-inch midrange drivers, a 1-inch aluminum dome tweeter, and a side firing fiber composite 12-inch woofer. The decorative side holes alter the dispersion pattern to reduce the amount of directional wall reflections.


Diverging from their amplification heritage, Pathos was featuring their loudspeaker prototype called Frontiers. There are front and rear firing tweeter and midrange drivers on top, with a pair of 6.5-inch bass drivers. All drivers, with the exception of the tweeter, are custom made for Pathos.


Reference 3a Dulcet minimonitor ($1,695 per pair) were little jewels. Like the other 3a designs, simplicity personified with a 1.2-inch dual suspension silk soft dome and 5-inch ultra-long throw midrange/woofer that produces frequencies from 48Hz to 20kHz. These small jewels present a nice, sane 8-ohm load, yet less than ultra-sensitive 87dB/W/m sensitivity.


Speaking of Reference 3a, refinements have been made to their Royal Virtuoso ($4,000) that now comes in Corian cabinet and upgraded Cardas loudspeaker binding posts.
