Infigo Audio pairs with Alta Audio Adam Speakers

Let's start with the music. On Fritz Reiner and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's RCA Living Stereo recording of Rimsky-Korsakoff's Scheherazade, the solo violin's sound epitomized beauty of tone. Smoothness was the system's strong suit, dwarfing (in this room) layering, detail, dynamics, and grandeur.

Then again, sound on a 16/44.1 file of Chabrier's España was the most liquid of anything I heard at the show up to midday. "Absolutely the right timbre and sound quality for this music," I wrote in my notes. Equally impressive was the beautiful guitar sound on a 24/176.4 transfer of the Mercury Living Presence LP of The Romeros playing Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez. The sound was superb.

Doing the honors: Infigo's Method 3 monoblocks ($50,000/pair), Method 4 Digital to Analog Converter ($35,000), and Fluvius Streamer ($1750) paired with Alta Audio's Adam loudspeakers ($18,000/pair) and Sparkle Series audio cables.
