Sanders Sound System
The configuration we’re looking at and to which I listened was the Model 10c which includes a digital electronic crossover and the Magtech monoblock amplifiers (1600W into an 8 ohm load) for a system price of $13,000. Cables are from Sanders Sound as well, which I believe are included in the system price since there was no pricing information on the sort-of informative brochure I picked up in the room. I say "sort-of" because it doesn't include any information on the source we listened to and I neglected to make a note of it.
When I mentioned in an earlier post that hi-fi is filled with personality, I was also thinking about people like Roger Sanders. His demos, I've heard some at other shows conducted by Roger Sanders himself, are as much a lecture as they are a listening session. It's as if Roger wants to will you into hearing things his way. While I imagine this could be a frustrating endeavor in the subjective world of audiophilia, I admire his determination.
The music we listened to could be labeled "all the things panels don’t do" or "we’re not wimpy, but we are delicate." I heard a few people comment that this was their favorite room in the show and for others I’m sure it wasn't.
