Sound+Image - - Events -

ABOVE: Yamaha’s new ver­sus clas­sic demon­stra­tion de­liv­ered a great (and per­haps brave!) pair of rooms, pre­sent­ing the new 5000 Se­ries C-5000 preamp, M-5000 stereo power amp and the her­alded GT-5000 turntable, con­nected to the much-awarded NS-5000 flag­ship speak­ers, while next door (right) were clas­sic NS-1000 loud­speak­ers, the leg­endary GT-2000 turntable, a C4 Con­trol pream­pli­fier and a rare MX-1000 power amp with its bounc­ing lights. RIGHT: The Davone Solo loud­speak­ers, de­signed in Den­mark as homage to the Verner Pan­ton 1-2-3 chair, and yes, that’s the forth­com­ing new Hal­cro Eclipse su­per­am­pli­fier there in the mid­dle, re­born un­der Ma­genta Au­dio... BE­LOW: Just one of a set of suites pop­u­lated by Tivoli Hi-Fi, this one with the Aus­tralian de­but of the new Marantz Ruby com­po­nents, play­ing through De­fin­i­tive

Tech­nol­ogy BP9080 tower speak­ers... BOT­TOM RIGHT: Bri­c­asti’s founder and de­signer Brian Zol­ner, who made the 17,000km trek from Mas­sachusetts to Mel­bourne to demon­strate the shiny new Bri­c­asti M21, switch-se­lectable for what­ever dig­i­tal in­puts and DAC method you like, and net­work ca­pa­ble too, in a sys­tem which was pro­duc­ing one of the sweet­est sounds of the Show this year.
