            For Immediate Release



            Pangea Audio and Friends to Pack AXPONA Room with High Performance, High Fidelity Audiophile-grade Gear



            Pangea, Cardas Audio, Vincent Audio, Auralic, and Ryan Speakers to Join Forces for Best Sounding Room at the Show



            GRAND RAPIDS, MI, March 27, 2019 – Pangea Audio, developer and manufacturer of high performance, high value audio accessories, today announced it will join forces with three of its favorite audio brands for an AXPONA 2019 display that covers some of the audio market’s most respected cables, components, speakers, and accessories.

            To be headquartered in room 1415 at the Renaissance Hotel in Schaumberg, IL, April 12-14, Pangea and its partner brands – Cardas Audio, Vincent Audio, Auralic, and Ryan Speakers -- will feature new and acclaimed products in complete systems designed to show how great sound can be achieved at a reasonable investment.

            “We appreciate any chance to work closely with our friends, let alone at one of the premier events in audio,” said Steve Niemi, Director of Global Sales, Pangea Audio, LLC. “Our 2019 demos include a selection of models that combine to produce detailed, full range audio systems that convey the beauty of full-range, high fidelity two-channel audio.”




            For its part, Pangea Audio Distributing will highlight the new X-Brace Audio Rack, which incorporates a modular design, providing both a sturdy, low vibration platform for electronics and gear. By adding the X-Brace design to the entirety of the rack, extreme stability is achieved, with each shelf capable of holding 80 lbs., and 300 lbs. for the entire four-shelf rack. In comparison, the original Vulcan Audio Rack holds 72 lbs. per shelf and 220 lbs. total.

            Vincent Audio’s popular SA 32 Hybrid Stereo Preamplifier and SP 332 Hybrid Stereo Amplifier will also share the spotlight, along with Ryan Speakers’ exciting new S-series, the Auralic Aries G1 Wireless Streaming Bridge and Vega G1 Digital Audio Processor, and a wide selection of Cardas Audio cables.

            In addition to the deep collection of products in room 1415, Pangea Audio products will be seen in Elac rooms 342 and 344; Chicago-area retailer Saturday Audio Exchange’s displays in rooms 304, 306, 1414, and 1-Inspiration; and Gingko Audio room 1520.

              AXPONA 2019
              GINGKO AUDIO PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT and PRESS MEETING INVITATION


              Gingko Audio will premiere the Clarissa LE monitor speakers in Room 1520. We will drive them using three different integrated amplifiers: a 100W Class D Cyrus One HD from the UK, an 8W tube TRV-A300XR from Triode Corp of Japan and a 150W solid state Majestic from Wells Audio in California.

              An international lineup of digital and analog sources from Poland, Austria, Mexico, and the USA is also presented. Cables are from Danacable, racks are from Pangea, and vibration control devices are from Gingko Audio.

              We plan to run demos every half hour and the audience gets to listen to all three systems - tube, solid state and Class D - playing the same music tracks for a direct comparison.

                  FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
                  German Physiks launches new high-end electronics at AXPONA 2019
                  German Physiks’ new Emperor range of high-end electronics will be launched in the U.S. next month at the AXPONA show in room 352 by their distributor, Distinctive Stereo LLC. The range currently comprises a preamplifier, integrated amplifier and stereo and mono power amplifiers. Our objective in designing the Emperor range was to create a range of electronics that would match our loudspeakers in terms of the very high level of transparency, dynamics and musicality that they offer, and in the case of the power amplifiers, to be able to drive any loudspeaker currently on the market. The Emperor Mono amplifier will deliver 1,800W continuously into 2Ω, so not only will it drive any loudspeaker that we are currently aware of, it will do so without any stress what-so-ever. At AXPONA the Emperor preamplifier (MSRP $19,750) and stereo power amplifier ($27,250) will be demonstrated with the German Physiks Borderland Mk. IV loudspeakers.
                  For more details of the Emperor electronics range please visit www.german-physiks.com

                          FROM: Playback Designs, Celebrating their 10th Anniversay of doing business in the USA with the Flagship MPS-5. Remember Michael Fremer’s review...click here.

                          TODAY, after 23 updates and latest upgrades the MPS-5 and MPD-5 meet todays standards of DSD4 and native-streaming!

                          Andreas Koch who started his career at STUDER/ReVox in the digital department, then moved on to Sony to head-up the development SACD/DSD and Sonoma digital workstation, then to EMM, Dolby Labs and finally his Playback Designs Company in 2007-8.

                          Kevin Hancock; designer and manufacturer of LATERAL audio stands.

                          PlayBack Designs

                          New STREAM-IF

                          The Stream-IF, which is yet another upgrade for ALL Playback Design products from the introduction of the MPS-5 in 2008 ! Remember the MPS-5 series started with DSD1 and with 23 field upgrades later it has current performance specs of DSD4 ! And now add ‘Stream-IF’ for listening to native streaming from QoBuz, Tidal, V-tuner, ROON etc. for today’s needed listening features. (How many Hi-End mfgrs. can you name that do that with 10+ year-old products?).

                          This upgrade product works with all PBD series 3, 5, 8 and Sonoma DACs (AND) any brand Dxx. Price $3300.

                          E-Glo Petit is the small sibling of the highly acclaimed and award winning E-Glo S with a fully discreet, OpAmp-less design, we were able to achieve an outstanding sound in a small and compact form factor. Stunning dynamics, a clear midrange and high resolution definition is what makes E-Glo Petit punch way above its weight. With the use of very special low noise J-FET transistors of the type 2SK209 in a quad-setup, E-Glo Petit reached its incredible and unique Signal to Noise Ratio of 87 decibels. No other tube phono preamplifier on the market is even getting near those results.
