Welcome, Midwest Audio
Walker, who began with Coincident Audio electronics 18 months ago, is now carrying a host of important brands that clearly deserve to be better known in the Midwest. Although he could not fully control the hooting in his room, the sound of music sourced from an SD card and played through a Resonessence Labs Invicta Mirus DSD USB DAC ($4995) had a special, delicious delicacy to its beautiful warm highs that stood out amidst the tough competition.
It was the end of the day, so that Jason and this Jason stopped looking at the clock and spent a bunch of time comparing the Resonessence Labs Invicta Mirus to the praised-by-John Atkinson AURALiC Vega DAC ($3499). Ultimately, the comparison was faulted, because the Invicta Mirus was over-heated by the components beneath it, and the Vega was cold. But it was fun to explore with someone who really cares about the fine points of sound. And I also got a sense of how much the Legacy Aeris loudspeaker ($20,735/pair), NAT Audio Transmitter SET amps ($23,000/pair) and Symmetrical preamp ($10,000), and Triangle ART cabling could do.
