  Celebrating 28 Years Of Service To Music Lovers




























RMAF 2010 Show Report (Rocky Mountain Audio Fest)

  Technical Brain had a nice big setup and they were playing wonderful drum and percussion music. Sounded very dynamic and great, so I hung out there for a while :)


Enjoy a nice photo of the Karma Sutra atop Edge Electronics' Signature 1.2 ($14,388) battery powered preamplifier. If you want real wideband, how does a frequency response from 5 Hz to 300kHz grab you… combined with ultra-low distortion of 0.005% and intermodulation distortion of only 0.007%. They were using a Music Streamer Pro DAC ($499) that was being fed from music files on the Macintosh computer.


Raal's ribbon tweeter comes with nicely shaped foam cells for tuning. Very interesting indeed and why didn't anyone else think of this tweak years ago and selling it? Sure many of us have tried using foam on the front panel of our speakers, yet it is also the shape of these foam pieces that very much intrigues me. Perhaps if there is enough demand they will sell these as a stand-alone product and not as something only included with their ribbon tweeter.


Minstral MM-4SE ($699) tube amplifier produces 40 wpc from 20Hz to 40kHz and there is something that draws me to it.


Pianist Bob Silverman brilliant talent drew in many attendees as he performed many times during the RMAF 2010. Ray Kimber was selling a very nice box set of music too, which Bob would gladly sign of course.


JoLida's brand new Glass FX tube DAC ($350) is so inexpensive yet can handle 24/192 via USB or S\PDIF and TosLink. It uses zero OpAmps and instead employs one dual triode12AX7 per channel. Here you go folks, a nice sweet yet cheap thrills high-rez tube DAC. Now there is no excuse for an audiophile music lover to not have a 24/192 system.


Well, that wraps up my show report and have set in motion some solid plans for my next complete reference system. Stay tuned as over the upcoming few months i shall write about the progress of the system as it takes shape within the Review Magazine, with equipment reviews appearing in Superior Audio. Thanks for reading my show report and as always...

Enjoy the Music,

Steven R. Rochlin
