    Great review Andre!

    I love how you tested the speakers with multiple amplifiers and noted how the sound changed! And one really finished the review with a great picture of how the speakers performed!

    Now about that flawed medium vinyl. We have to have a talk.

      That was in there to keep our digital buddies from getting uncomfortable with the music source. You know there's no need for a talk. Unless we're talking about how good vinyl sounds!

    Nice review, Dre.

    But $175K!!


    I wonder how much of the magic you get with the little RC7 at $35K.

    Kronos Sparta -> Trinity Phono -> Trinity Pre -> CH Precision A1 -> Magico S7s

      Thanks Allen.

      Yes, the RC 9 is one of the more expensive models in the lineup.

      BTW: The last time I checked, the only RC 7 model available from the us distributor's (Axiss Audio) dealer network is the pure diamond tweeter version which is $60,000. While I've heard it sound great, I haven't had it in my home or in a system I know well enough to tell you how much of the RC 9 is in there except to say they share the Berlina design philosophy.

        Thanks Myles. It was laborious but worth the extra work. I think.
