AVM-TEC is an audio start-up, fronted by Alexander Vitus (yes, that Vitus), with a couple of prototype products on display. The first, the Alluxity Pre ONE preamplifier (TBD, but ~$8,000), sports a very fancy LCD touch-display, a display that’s shared with the matching Alluxity Power ONE (TBD, but ~$11,000). Neither product are actually available as yet as the brand is still in pre-launch mode, but this was a great showing for the 20-year-old designer. To be perfectly honest, it’s kinda humbling that this kid is putting together gear at this level at this age. Yikes.
Shown with the marvelous Estelon XC ($22,900/pair), which are at least new to me, and that superb-if-crazy-looking Da Vinci DAC from Light Harmonic.
I’d like to hear / read about a shoot out between the “baby” entry level (?) Raidho and the Estelon speakers. Which sounds more real, w/in the limits of their respective bandwidths.
I’m sure there’s an sonic explanation regarding the cabinet shape on these speakers or at least an attempt at one but I don’t care for the aesthetic one bit. Cartoon-like comes to mind.
