AXPONA 2014: YG, Audionet and Kronos

DSC00749

I swung through this room just before breakdown, so I didn’t get to hear the new $42k/pair YG Acoustics Hailey loudspeakers.

Those lucky enough to catch the action would have seen and heard a full collection of Audionet equipment driving them, including the $20k DNP digital network preamplifier, $20k PAM G2 phono preamp, and $18k/pair AMP mono blocks. Kubala-Sonsa Elation cables were used throughout.

The new $21,500 Sparta turntable from Kronos Audio sat nearby, with their distinctive, mesmerizing and lust-inducing counter-rotating platters. An Airtight PC-1 cartridge was mounted on a $6,500 Helena tonearm.
