The Best Speaker in the World?
I admit it. I have found YG Acoustics' hyperbolic promotional material off-putting. But having recently listened to the Colorado company's 4-way Anat Reference Professional speaker system in Wes Phillips' systemhe is reviewing it for our February 2009 issueI made a point of seeking the speaker out for a longer audition at RMAF.
Tucked away at the end of a ground-floor corridor off the Marriott's atrium, where the large room had excellent isolation from other exhibits, the big Anats, driven by an FM Acoustics power amp, and Daniel Weiss's state-of-the-art digital combination of Jason CD transport and Medea DAC, produced sound that was breathtaking in its unforced full-range dynamics and its unexaggerated tonal colors. But with the speaker weighing 400 lbs per side, I am not looking forward to transporting them to my test lab for measurement!
