Music in the Round #69
It's August as I write this, and I'm looking back at some things that need to be discussed, and forward to the fall audio showsparticularly the 2014 New York Audio Show, which, by the time you read this, will have been held in Brooklyn
, September 2628. I grew up in Brooklyn, not in "the city," Manhattan, a place that we traveled to only for special reasons. Audio shops were rare in BrooklynI remember only Audio Exchangebut in Manhattan there was a small cluster near Grand Central Station, there was Lafayette Radio near the Holland Tunnel, a few scattered elsewhere, and the magnet of Liberty Street in lower Manhattan, where more than two city blocks were packed with audio shops.

Can a power-supply upgrade produce audible sonic benefits? If you've upgraded the power supply of a phono preamplifier, you probably don't need to be convinced that it does, and those usually cost only a small percentage of the price of the model they power. But to add Simaudio's Moon Evolution 820S power supply ($8000) to the Moon Evolution 650D DACCD transport ($9000), which I reviewed in the November 2011 issue
, almost doubles
the latter's costthough the 820S can be used to simultaneously power two
Moon Evolution components, like the 750D DAC ($14,000), 740P preamplifier ($9500), and 610LP ($7500) and 810LP phono preamplifier ($13,000).
