Bladelius Comes to the US
I love wandering the halls and coming across a fully formed company that had up until now snuck under the radar in the US. Bladelius is such a brand, enjoying success all around the world and presently making a push into North America. President George Ioakimedes, who resides in the US, is at the show to sign up dealers and spread the word about the Swedish company.
Pictured here is the Embla "replay system" which is a disc player, music server with internal or external drive capability, digital preamp (including an analog input for ripping vinyl or tapes to hard drive) and all the typical networking options from SPDIF to USB. Prices range from $9,000 for a fully loaded machine with front touch panel and internal SSD drives down to $6,000 for more basic features. All are available now.
