Magico, Octave, and Nordost
The relaxing, downright gorgeous silky strings on an orchestral version of Debussy's Clair de Lune reinforced positive feelings. True, the strings got brittle at higher volumes, but that, I had already learned, was true in many of the echo-prone, high ceilinged rooms on the Westin O'Hare's 12th floor. I regret that I can't supply more information on the components. When I asked for an equipment list, I was told, "It's all on the website." As far as I could tell, there was no mention of AXPONA, let alone a price sheet, on the Hanson AV website. A call for information was not returned by press time.
