Warsaw 2017: Serious high end with Jadis, Serblin and DaVinci

One of the most important rooms of the show, if you count in factors like heritage, built quality, price and last but not least, musical connection, the Grobel room with a stack of Jadis tube amplifiers including the JA 500 monos with external power supplies, the gorgeous Serblin Ktema speakers and an impressive analog front end, courtesy of DaVinci Audio Labs from Switzerland. Add a phono stage by Thoress and power solutions by Verictum for a deeply sensual, intimate and completely fatigueless session.

The lights were dim and I almost felt bad for having to shoot with my flash, attenders were more in the “I’ here to listen to some great music” mood than the typical “lets check yet another show room” mood, it was almost like being at someone’s private residence, admiring the system he has come up with after years in the search. Probably not the deepest bass of the show, still one of the best sounding rooms, words like flow and realism come to mind.
