David Counsell and the team at DC10 obliterated the ball out of the park with the Kabuki Ohaku. So much so that you can come by and hear it at Audio Prana in Boston.
Viva really made a splash this year at Munich. With a new headphone amp (that can also drive speakers, a new hybrid integrated amp (120 watts of Viva sound in a gorgeous package) , and 2 new pairs of speakers, one can see that Amadeo, Giampietro and Serge have been very busy this year. Is it suspect to say that all of their new wares blew my hat off? Well, they did. Amadeo Schembri is a master engineer with a very specific idea of the way music sounds. All of his gear maintains that signature. Can't wait for some larger explorations of this company in 2016. Till then, dig this video of their new monitor being powered by their integrated amp. Stunning!!
These Brits have been cutting the edge of materials in audio engineering for a while. Here are the super monitors along with subs, and a very high fallutin front end from TechDas. The racks are from WB too and come in at around $10k per shelf. (I'm leaning towards a one box system so I can afford one.)
