A Thing for Circles

The delightful Gilbert Yeung of Blue Circle, minus the Mickey Mouse ears and Snake Oil display I encountered at the last Show, has a thing for circles. I'm not complaining. After seeing boxes upon boxes upon boxes, encountering a surfeit of circles is super. (I have a feeling someone is going to rake me over the coals in the comments section for that one.)

Gilbert’s smaller system, consisting of the DAR 100Wpc, stereo, class-AB, hybrid integrated amp equipped with the 6SN7 tube ($2995), the BC 501ob DAC ($7395), and Jean Marie Renaud Offrande Signature speakers ($6500/pair) had a very seductive, smooth center to its sonic presentation that tempted me to forget about all the other rooms left to cover.
