              Channel D. Nice A/D convertor and new battery powered phono stage. Fully analog with optional A/D if you want to convert your LPs to digital files.

                Yes, Bob from Channel D has reworked and replaced the speaker's original xover with a digital xover.

                  Photo credit: Eric Franklin Shook:

                  Caught crate digging near the end of the show in one of my few free moments! Found a few rare Argos never seen before (and I have a ton load) including one where Wilkinson is actually listed on the back cover, some Zamfir recordings and a couple of CSD EMIs that I didn't have. All for $5 each. The take away of the show, however, were five Mercury DuPre organ recordings for $10 each. Now I have these albums but these copies looked absolutely mint. I don't think they were ever played and are all very early pressings. The vendor actually had a lot of very nice stuff, apparently from two collections, in good shape. He told me one of the collections had a lot of books, most looked unread too.

                          DSA Audio, VPI, Ortofon and Spendor. One of the better sounding rooms at CAF. New prototype 125 wpc Class A amplifier and linestage on display. (final version of the amplifier will be at RMAF.) Fascinating comparison of Ortofon Anna vs. A95. Stay tuned. It ain't what you expect.

                            VPI and KEF. The room everyone wants to know about and will have to wait just a little bit longer. But one of the finest sounds at the show, of course rounding into form on Sunday. VPI solidified its line along with the introduction of the new, entry level Cliffwood line (mentioned in my earlier report from May).
