Excellence from YG Acoustics, AUDiONET, and GTT
Listening to a 45rpm pressing of Ansermet's rendition of Falla's Three Cornered Hat, I noted rewardingly neutral sound, impressively full and tight bass, absolute silence between and around notes, a huge soundstage, and the fabulous air one associates with the best analog reproduction. Perhaps the system lacked the last degree of humanity, or perhaps I was too tired to appreciate its yin side at the end of the busiest day of the show.
Regardless, YG Acoustics Hailey loudspeakers ($42,800/pair) sounded world class through AUDiONET's DNP digital network preamplifier ($20,300) with phono preamp PAM G with EPX power supply ($20,200/combo) and AMP mono block amplifiers ($18,250/pair), all of which sang away thanks to Kubala-Sosna Elation cabling. Definitely one of the better systems at the show.
