RMAF 2011: Nola, ARC

The Nola Baby Grand Reference, powered by an all-Audio Research front end. I think those were Nordost Odin cables.

This room had very nice sound, but it was loud, the doors were open, and that sound was continuously shared with the entire floor. Heard them as soon as the elevator doors opened. Heard them until the elevator doors closed. To say that they can fill a room with sound would be a rather profound understatement. They can fill a house. And probably an entire neighborhood. Having a party? These are the speakers you want to have. The sound is big, tactile, clear and extended — a neat trick, given hotel show-room conditions.
