  • Axpona 2018 Day 3: The Final Push

    For better or worse. Either this show is bigger than one person can cover or I am getting old. Or both!

    Classic Audio speakers, Atma-sphere electronics, Kuzma table/Tri-planar arm and UHA tape machine. Always a pleasure to visit with Greg Beron of UHA and discuss the tape scene! Greg had his newest deck along with several updates to the tape path to reduce scrape flutter.Not shown: the huge power supply sitting under Greg's deck. Would love to hear the UHA in my system.

      We had a huge slap echo in that room so it was harsh around the edges and near the door. But the center seats worked pretty good. Not sure yet if we'll be back- although the room was promised to us for next year, AXPONA is backing away from that even though we jumped through all the hoops...

    What a sight for sore eyes! The Supreme-Analog Tangenta 12-inch Reference tonearm from Serbia mounted on an Artisan Fidelity Garrard 301 Statement turntable. Accessorizing by Transfiguration Proteus!

    The Woo Audio, Kimber Kable and MrSpeakers Club Lounge on the 15th floor
    was always packed. Perhaps it was the bar at the end of the lounge?

      There's always a warm spot in my heart for Magnepan speakers. My old Magnepan 3As served me well in the '80s (replacing my DQ10s) and into early '90s (??) until the Martin-Logan Quests entered my system. For one thing, few tweeters can match that Maggie ribbon driver's effortless, extension and airiness. While the 3A didn't quite have the speed or transparency of a stat, the Maggies were easier to drive and were a little warmer in the midrange. The older cj tube amplifiers just loved that easy 4 ohm load and made a wonderful match. Then again Maggies weren't going to move a lot of air down low but what they did when playing back the snap of a double bass was pretty special.

      Jump ahead to 2018 and here we have Maggie 3.7i models in the flesh in the Silnote Audio cables room being driven by the Levinson 335 solid-state amplifier along with an Allnic L4000 linestage. (I reviewed its brother 336 amplifier back in the '90s for Ultimate Audio and gave it very high marks when hooked up to the Martin-Logan reQuests!) Interestingly too, this was a successful pairing of a tube preamplifier with a solid-state amplifier. These Maggies--like their older brothers--still had that old image height that I so crave. They were fast but more importantly more transparent than most of the other rooms at Axpona (in fact, transparency was a really elusive quality at this year's Axpona).

        Roger Gibboni's new PA-1A phono preamplifier debuted at Axpona 2018. The dual mono, all tube, Class-A design sports an impressive 95 dB at 20 mV input. Gain is also adjustable (50-65 dB) with a combination of 12AU7 and 12AX7 tubes.

          Carl and Marilyn Marchisotto from NOLA brought out their new $6900 NOLA Condender 3 speakers to the Chicago Show The Contender 3 features redesigned bass drivers and silk dome tweeters as well as Mundorf capacitors and internal Nordost mono-filament silver wiring.
          This year Carl opted for VAC's new 85 wpc Sigma 170i integrated amplifiers--instead of his staple ARC 75 amplifier--to drive the Contenders. I've always slightly preferred the VAC/NOLA to the ARC/NOLA combo at some shows.
          Like all NOLA speakers, the Contender 3 has very good low end as well as being very dynamic and transparent. (yes sometimes Carl plays his system was too loud.)

            The 70 grand Triangle Arts Magellan Grand Concert speakers from France being driven by Luxman electronics. Oh yeah. Please leave that Stevie Ray Vaughn album home. Whatever love I had for this album has been killed by hearing this LP in practically every room visited. No mas!

              How did the Luxman sound. Similar to what other SS gear?

            Once a electrostatic lover, always an electrostatic lover. Despite having moved on from my Summit-X speakers, I still love and covet the transparency, speed and resolution of the best stat panels. There's just something addictive about the Martin-Logan's ability to resolve those little instrumental nuances. Little in scale but huge in terms of bringing one closer to the emotion of the music.

            Those qualities were out in full force with the Precision Audio Video room featuring the Constellation Revelation Series electronics driving Martin-Logan's $25K Rennaissance ESL 15A! This is the first time that I can recall that the two teamed up and the sound using the Continuum table outfitted with an Ortofon A95 really stood out from the bulk of the rooms at the show. In fact, this was the best sound in fact that Martin-Logan has gotten at a show. I would also add that the sound of the Constellation electronics is evolving and I don't find them as stark and sterile as the original electronics. The electronics--at least the amplifiers, preamplifiers and phonostage--sound more like music. I hope these two continue to team up at future shows!!!

                Gayle Sanders returned to high-end audio not with another electrostatic speaker design but an active, DSP controlled speaker named the Eikon. Speaker is priced at $25,000.

                  Axiss Audio brought lots of new toys to Axpona 2018 included a recently released new series of electronics from Air Tight electronics along with Piega speakers and the Reed turntable and arms. Included among that was the first new Air Tight preamplifier in 28 years. I really dug the look of the new Air Tight step-ups!
