High Water Introduces Pure Sound
I’m afraid I hit High Water Sound’s room at the end of the fourth floor at a time when, overwhelmed by how many systems I had left to visit before show’s end, could only muster the words “very nice sound” in my notes. Clearly I owe you an apology, and Jeffrey Catalano’s high-end emporium a visit the next time I’m in New York City.
What I can tell you that this was the show debut for Pure Sound’s M845 SE monoblock amplifier ($10,000/pair), L300 line stage preamplifier ($8000), P10 phono preamplifier ($1000), T10 step up transformer ($500) and A8000 CD player ($1600). These babies were fed by TW-Acustic’s Raven One turntable ($7000) with Ortofon 309D tonearm ($2999) and Audio Note cartridge, and were feeding Horning Hybrid Systems’ Aristotle Ultimate Zigma Plus loudspeakers ($15,000/pair) courtesy of the Silver Circle Audio Pure Power One 5.0 SE ($7500); High Fidelity Cables’ interconnects and speaker cables; Silver Circle Audio, Stealth, WSS, and Tel Wire power cables; Silent Running Audio Ohio XL Bases and Symposium Acoustics Super Plus speaker platforms.
