Dynaudio’s Evidence Platinum
The Platinum features updated drive-units and revised crossover compared with the older Evidence Master that Larry Greenhill reviewed in May 2000 but costs less!
The speakers were hooked up with StraightWire Crescendo cables to two new products from T+A: the MP3000HV media streamer/CD player ($12,500, left in photo above) and PA3000HV integrated amplifier ($16,000, right). The “HV” in these products’ names stands for “High Voltage,” ie, the power supply rails are much higher voltage than usual with solid-state designs, to confer some of the benefits of tube circuits. The MP3000HV features completely separate power supplies for its digital and analog circuits; the PA3000HV operates in class-A up to 40Wpc into 8 ohms, with a maximum power of 500W into that load.
