With luck, this unit will find its way to me in the next few weeks. Ahem! Pricing is set at $13,000. All the cabling was courtesy of Dyrholm Audio from Denmark. Stillpoints‘ Bruce Jacobs pointed out the ESS rack, with the now-familiar SS Ultras, suspending all the gear ($13,000 as configured).
Sound in this room was very good, courtesy of a very blue pair Estelon Xb loudspeakers ($33,000), fed from a 300wpc Vitus Audio RS-100 Stereo Poweramplifier ($13,000). A Soundsmith Hyperion cartridge turned up on the VPI Aries 3 turntable ($13,500, with toneararm), together providing the source material for the Vitus Audio RP-101 phonostage ($13,000). Vitus, whether fed by digital or analog, into a pair of big ceramic driver Estelons has to be one of my favorite combinations. The styling is as elegant as the sound. Wrap it up.
