The Hi-Fi Show Live 2015

ROOM 1: WINDSOR LOUNGE

One of the best CD playback systems money can buy – Metronome Technologie’s Kalista Ultimate transport and new C8+ DAC – is joined by a mighty music server called The Beast, engineered without compromise in Switzerland by ReQuest Audio. Amplification is supplied by the high-end dream team at Constellation Audio, with the Virgo III preamp and mighty Hercules II power amp driving Magico’s latest feat of exemplary science and engineering, the awesome S7 loudspeakers. Constellation’s Irv Gross and Magico’s Peter Mackay are flying in from the US to conduct demonstrations.

Absolute Sounds’ second room hosts Sabrina – the new compact floorstander from Wilson Audio, one of the world’s most prestigious loudspeaker marques. Renowned recording engineer and Wilson Audio ambassador Peter McGrath will conduct demonstrations, with two different systems driving the speakers: a valve-based set-up from Audio Research, and a solid-state system from Dan D’Agostino. The Audio Research set-up includes the revered Reference CD9, feeding amps from the company’s new Reference SE range sporting KT150 valves. The Dan D’Agostino system, meanwhile, includes the Momentum Lifestyle Amplifier, or MLife for short; an extraordinary new integrated DAC/amp with comprehensive wireless streaming facilities, delivering the exceptional sound quality you’d expect from Krell’s legendary founder.
