      NEW PRODUCT INTRODUCTIONS
      AMG VIELLA FORTE 12 TURBO Turntable $32,000
      DS AUDIO ION-001 Ionizer $1,800
      AMG VIELLA FORTE Press Conference on Thursday September 7th at 4pm in ROOM 7105

      Click on above image to go to AMG website
      Please join Garth Leerer, Jon Baker, and Mike Fajen from Musical Surroundings as we introduce the AMG Viella Forte turntable. This is the US Show debut of Analog Manufaktur Germany’s “super” version of their famous Viella turntable, recent recipient of The Absolute Sounds Golden Ear Award 2019.

      The DS Audio ION-001 Ionizer will also be introduced.
      Forte means strong or powerful, and the Viella Forte uses new thicker materials and machining techniques. On display will include parts and sub-assemblies machined at the AMG factory for both the Viella and Viella Forte for comparison.

      The AMG factory is 1.5 hours north of Munich, bordering the area known as ‘the little Switzerland of Bavaria”, Franconian Switzerland, or Fränkischze Schweiz. In addition to precision factories, high tech, and universities, this area produces very strong and powerful schnapps, which are clear distilled fruit or nut brandies. (not to be confused with peach or peppermint schnapps!)

      Attendees will be able to sample Hazelnut schnapps from Haas, one of the top schnapps producers in Germany and the world.
      We are demonstrating the AMG Viella Forte 12 Turbo Engraved turntable with Clearaudio Jubilee MC cartridge, Boulder electronics, Vienna Acoustics Liszt speakers, REL woofers, Nordost cabling, and HRS equipment stands in conjunction with our Denver dealer Soundings. Below is a detailed system list with pricing.

      AMG Viella Forte 12 Turbo Engraved turntable ($32,000)

      Clearaudio Jubilee MC cartridge ($6,000)

      Boulder 1110 Preamplifier ($21,000)

      Boulder 1160 Stereo Amplifier ($28,000)

      Boulder 2108 Phono Preamplifier ($52,000)

      Boulder 2120 D/A Converter ($65,000)

      Vienna Acoustics Liszt loudspeakers, rosewood finish ($18,798)

      Nordost Valhalla cabling

      Nordost QB8 Power Base line conditioner ($1,599)

      HRS VXR equipment stands with M3X platforms
      INTRODUCING THE DS AUDIO ION-001 $1,800

      Click on above image to go to DS Audio website
      The ION-001 is a very high-power device, equipped with a total of 4 ionizers, 2 each for positive and negative ions. The ION-001 utilizes a specialized power supply controller which suppresses the generation of excess ozone, preventing unwanted oxidation.

      Vinyl records have a surface static electricity charge created by friction. Two common sources of that friction is stylus drag as well as simply removing records from their jacket and sleeve. The ION-001 effectively neutralizes and removes static electricity and our unique "fan less" design allows for silent operation.

      Simply position the ION-001 next to your turntable and switch on when playing an LP.
      DS AUDIO cartridges played through EMM Labs Optical Phono Stages in room 11105
      Another breakthrough for DS Audio! Designed by Ed Meitner, these are the first commercially available Optical Phono Stages by an audio manufacturer other than DS Audio. Five years of hard work by Aki has proven his optical cartridge concept. Now, the recognition with the first optical phono stages by another audio manufacturer. People are finally embracing the sound quality of these ultra-low moving mass, magnetic-distortion free, low noise, linear transducers.
      Our products are featured in at least 6 different rooms. Mike Fajen, our Director of Customer Service, will participate in the Record Cleaning Seminar on Friday, September 8th at 1:15 pm.

          PS Audio at RMAF: New Speakers, Phono Preamp, Michael Fremer, and Ask Paul Live!
          Final pre-production prototypes of the AN3 speakers, spinning discs through the new Stellar phono preamp, and Paul McGowan, Live!


          Boulder, CO: 9/3//2019-----At Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2019, PS Audio will present our latest state-of-the-art components in the Homestead 2 room at the new Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center.

          The demo system will feature the final pre-production prototypes of the PS Audio AN3 speakers. The configuration and driver complement of the AN3 have been completely revised from the prototype shown at Axpona earlier this year. In the latest iteration, all drivers, crossovers, DSP, crossover and amplification were designed by Chris Brunhaver, Senior Loudspeaker Design Engineer at PS, and are custom-built exclusively for PS.

          The AN3 features coaxial planar magnetic midrange and tweeter drivers, bespoke midbass coupler and woofer/subwoofer drivers with massive magnet assemblies and state-of-the-art inert cone assemblies,with the subwoofer driven by a built-in 700-watt amplifier. Our own DSP program aids installation in any room. The cabinet has been divided into two assemblies (mid/tweeter and midbass/sub-bass/amp/DSP) for ease of shipping and assembly. MSRP of the AN3 has yet to be determined, but we expect the $15-20k range.

          The AN series is based upon the work of our friend and mentor Arnie Nudell, and will eventually include 3 models. The AN3 will be the smallest and least expensive, followed by the AN2 and AN1. The AN1 will be a massive line-source loudspeaker designed as the ultimate expression of Arnie's work, and a fitting replacement for and successor to the Infinity IRS Vs, which have served as our reference loudspeakers for years. There will also be three models of Stellar loudspeakers, designed to emulate the sound quality of the AN series, at lower price-points.

          Lead designer Chris Brunhaver will be present to answer questions regarding the AN3s and other upcoming speakers.

          We'll also be playing records through the new Stellar Phono Preamp. Lead designer, Senior Analog Engineer Darren Myers will be on hand to answer questions about the unit, which features all discrete FET circuitry, passive RIAA equalization, a massive power supply, and variable loading for moving coil cartridges.

          Here's the complete RMAF demo system:
          Paul McGowan's hand-tweaked Mac Mini as digital source
          PS Audio DirectStream DAC (US MSRP $5999)
          PS Audio Stellar Phono Preamp (US MSRP $2499)
          PS Audio BHK Signature Preamplifier (US MSRP $5999)
          PS Audio BHK Signature 300 Mono Amplifiers, x 2 (US MSRP $7499 each)
          PS Audio P20 Power Plant Regenerators x 2 (US MSRP $9999 each)
          PS Audio P15 Power Plant Regenerator (US MSRP $7499)
          PS Audio AN3 loudspeakers (Final pre-production prototypes, US MSRP TBD)
          VPi HW-40 turntable (US MSRP $14,999)
          Miscellaneous PS Audio Power cords

          A variety of other PS Audio gear will be on static display:
          Sprout100 integrated amplifier(US MSRP $599)
          DirectStream DAC (US MSRP $5999)
          Stellar Gain Cell DAC/preamplifier (US MSRP $1699)
          Stellar Phono Preamp (US MSRP $2499)
          Stellar M700 mono amplifiers (US MSRP $2998/pair)
          BHK Signature Preamplifier (US MSRP $5999)
          BHK Signature 250 Stereo Amplifier (US MSRP $7499)
          Stellar P3 PowerPlant (US MSRP $2199)
          P12 PowerPlant regenerator (US MSRP $4999)
          P15 PowerPlant regenerator (US MSRP $7499)
          P20 PowerPlant regenerator (US MSRP $9999)
          Obsidian Ted Smith Signature DAC (Prototype, US MSRP TBD)
          AN3 loudspeaker (Final pre-production prototype, US MSRP TBD)

          Decidedly not static: PS Audio Founder and CEO Paul McGowan will be answering questions in a live Ask Paul session, Friday at 11:45 AM in the seminar room, Colorado Ballroom C. Attendees will be able to submit audio-related questions to Paul, just as in his popular YouTube Ask Paul series---only live, and in person.

          Also not static:analog guru Michael Fremer will be spinning some very special discs right in our room, using the new Stellar Phono Preamp and a VPI HW-40turntable: Friday and Saturday at 2;30 PM, and Sunday at 11:00 AM.

          We look forward to seeing you at the show!

                    New Vandersteen Loudspeaker:
                    KĒNTO Carbon to Debut at RMAF 2019

                    Featuring a carbon tweeter, the Model Seven MK II midrange, new 9 inch subwoofer driver powered by 400 Watt Linear Amplifier and increased midbass adjustability resulting in a more open and expansive soundstage, and greater bass authority than the now retired model 5A Carbon.


                    Vandersteen Audio is very proud to premiere the KĒNTO Carbon, the newest Vandersteen loudspeaker. The previous model at this price level, the Model 5 represented the first Vandersteen speaker with an adjustable powered subwoofer built into the full range enclosure to pursue the ideal time and phase alignment of all drivers. The original Model 5 had been in constant production for over twenty years, where it was firmly ensconced as a Stereophile Class A Recommendations, and was a perennial TAS Editor's Choice and winning universal praise from reviewers and consumers around the world. All of which is testament to the fact that it’s a tough speaker to improve upon! However, Richard and Nathan Vandersteen, the architects of this ambitious project, found that using side-firing 9 inch drivers allowed for further bass and mid-bass integration adjustment in any space. This breakthrough along with the existing carbon tweeter and newly combined with the patented Model Seven midrange yields results never seen at this price point. Early measurements and listening show this speaker’s performance will be a good part of the Model Seven Mk.II and a significant step forward with it’s new proprietary technological features. This speaker is priced at an introductory price of $37,500 per pair in painted or wood veneer finishes, and will be available early in 2020. A small deposit will hold your place and you can decide your finish later. See your Vandersteen dealer for details.


                    The KĒNTO Carbon will be featured in a superlative audio system at RMAF 2019 Room 8125, comprised of the following:

                          Andover Audio Introduces the Model One Record Player
                          Audiophile-Grade Record Player with Integrated Speaker System and Advanced Features
                          North Andover, MA – Sep 4, 2019 – Model One Record Player, is an advanced record player and entertainment system. It combines an industry-respected turntable with a high-grade audio system and a bevy of digital listening features, giving users a high-quality plug-and-play solution to enjoy their music without the need of extra audio components.

                          High-quality, noise-free phono playback is made possible by IsogrooveTM, an exclusive Andover Audio technology that eliminates the occurrence of feedback between turntable and speaker. This allows the turntable to be mounted in the same, low-profile enclosure as the speakers, without fidelity-disruptive hum. The result is great sound in a compact package.

                          The Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Espirit SB turntable is used as a high-grade turntable source. It features an Ortofon OM2 Silver cartridge, carbon fiber tonearm and acrylic platter. The turntable provides pristine, low-noise playback, without the record wear common in lower-grade alternatives. It plays 33, 45, and 78 RPM records (with optional stylus), giving entry-level users the ease-of-use they desire, with flexibility that meets the needs of advanced listeners.

                          The integrated loudspeaker system is composed of four 3.5” aluminum diaphragm woofers and two Air Motion Transformer tweeters, bi-amplified by a powerful Class-D 150W amplifier. Listeners will be delighted with the clarity, balance and frequency-range they find in larger speaker setups, without fatigue that results from improperly tuned systems.

                          Many analog and digital ins/outs are included in the system, as well as a host of customizable options accessible by a front-mounted graphic interface, with intuitive single-knob operation. Selectable sources include phono, Bluetooth 4.2 (with APT-X), and a dedicated input for a Wi-Fi streaming device. Stereo and Mono listening modes are readily accessible, as well as a Panoramic mode that enhances the stereo image, making the unit sound like a pair of widely spaced speakers. The settings menu provides custom adjustment of EQ, satisfying listeners seeking a sound balance that better matches their content or room.

                          Headphone listeners will be delighted with the dedicated class-A headphone amplifier, which provides optimal drive to conventional moving-coil headphones, as well as power-hungry flat panel types. Full-range preamp and subwoofer outputs are also provided for system expansion.

                          Model One Record Player is styled with a timeless, Mid-Century aesthetic, inspired by the classic furniture of the era.
