Awesome Gear from T+A
It was awesome to see the limited edition Dynaudio Sapphire, cloaked in a stunning clear blue piano lacquer over a veneer of bird’s eye maple. The sound was just as fine: cymbals and horns had a natural bite, without edge or glare, blooming and blooming and blooming into the room.
It was also the first time I’d seen or heard T+A’s impressive collection of V-Series tubed gear, all of which reminded me of the coolest toys for grown boys, looking somehow rugged and elegant: The D 10 CD/SACD player ($12,500), P 10 valve preamp ($12,500), G 10 turntable ($9750, with SME tonearm and Benz Micro cartridge), and the 550W(!) M 10 monoblock power amplifier ($33,000/pair).
This was some of my favorite gear of the show, and I wish I had pictures to share with you. If you're curious, please take a look at the V-Series gear on the T+A website.
