Robert Lighton was Audio Note-ing it today, with $85k Kegon mono blocs, a $50k M8 pre-amp, and a $11k S8 step-up. A vintage Thorens TD124 turntable carried an Audio Note tonearm with VX silver wire and an Io Gold cart.
And then there were the speakers: a pair of stand-mounted RL8 Monitors. Finished in solid mahogany, the 94dB sensitive speakers have a big 8″ woofer. Price, with stands, is $11,800.
