Audio Round-Up in Colorado Springs

Koetsu USA, the US distributor for the $15,000 Koetsu Coralstone Platinum Mono reviewed by Michael Fremer in our May 2009 issue, has announced that several of its products will be demonstrated during a special "Audio Round-Up," hosted by Audio Limits in Colorado Springs. This free, two-day event takes place on Saturday and Sunday, May 16 and 17, and is open to the public.

"Music fans will have a rare opportunity to listen to, examine, and enjoy some of the best audio components in today's market," said Audio Limits owner, Darrin O'Neill. "We'll be exhibiting a collection of exceptional products in systems designed to bring out the best each element offers in a relaxed, informal, atmosphere."

High quality audio gear in a relaxed, informal atmosphere: Sounds just like the sort of thing this high end hi-fi hobby needs to build enthusiasm and attract curious newcomers. In addition to the limited-edition Koetsu phono cartridges, other featured gear will include Chario loudspeakers, Goldenote electronics, VEXO tube amplification, Montegiro turntables, and the new DSS 30 Digital Static Source, a multi-format digital player from Blacknote. There will be several demonstrations as well as seminars with guest speakers from Koetsu USA and Goldenote.
