VPI Prime Scout Turntable – Bestselling VPI Table of all Time
Stereophile Product of the Year Award Winner
The Prime Scout reintroduces the audio world to the best-selling VPI table of all time – better than the old one, better than it should be at this price! The Scout has become one of the world’s best-reviewed turntables! The Scout is so simple to set-up, you can have the table up and running in just minutes.
“The new model sounds like a clearer, tightened-up, altogether more engaging version of the old. If you liked the Scout, you’ll really like the Prime Scout, which seems to offer good value, both comparatively and in and of itself.” – Art Dudley, Stereophile Magazine
Audio Research LS28
“An invisible preamplifier? Well, the striking visual statement, very much in the usual Audio Research mould, goes against that, but the sound here has a transparency and liquid quality to make it well- suited to a wide range of systems, while its simplicity and flexibility also appeal. If you hanker after the qualities of the much pricier REF 6, but can’t stretch to its price-tag, the LS28 won’t leave you feeling short-changed.” HI-FI News
In design, the LS28 resembles a simplified version of the company’s REF 6 preamp. It uses two pairs of 6H30 triodes in place of the three pairs in the pricier model, and solid-state power supply regulation in place of the REF 6’s valves. A Line-level preamp, it offers four balanced (on XLR) and four single-ended (on RCA) inputs with pairs of XLR/RCA outputs (plus rec out).
Audio Research VT80 SE
Stereo Tube Amplifier
As our Warren Gehl said, “More music!” Tonal color, detail, dynamic swing and purity are all improved, along with a bigger and more robust presentation. The music gets better, in every way.
With its auto-bias design, the VT80SE can also be used with KT120 or KT150 output tubes and the circuit will adjust immediately when a new tube is installed.
Protective fuses are installed for each output tube and can be replaced if the need ever arises. What sonic improvements will you hear with the VT80SE?
Audio Research Reference 160 M Tube Monoblocks
Quite possibly the most beautiful amplifiers ever designed.
The meters look like they’re floating in the air, and the tubes are visible right behind them! Utilizing KT150 tubes, this is about as modern and detailed sounding a tube amp will ever get. Built-in auto bias means you never have to fuss around with the tubes.
And tube rollers can play around with KT88, KT120, and 6550’s without making any adjustments.
Bowers & Wilkins 705 S2
The top-performing stand mount speaker in the range, 705 S2 features studio-inspired technologies, for immaculate sound quality.
Milled from a solid block of aluminum, the solid body tweeter housing design creates an acoustically optimized housing for the tweeter – one that’s exceptionally inert and resistant to resonances.
Carbon Dome tweeters are a brand new technology purpose-built for the 700 Series. Delivering a dramatic improvement on the aluminum double dome tweeter, they raise the breakup threshold to 47kHz, for pinpoint imaging accuracy and detail.
Voices and instruments are delivered with purity and precision, thanks to the smooth, accurate Continuum™ cone mid/bass driver.
