Ancient Audio slips under the noses of many people here in the states. It's a shame because Jarek Waszczyszyn is a bit of a wonder. His little monitors are not only beautiful to behold, the sound is simply phenomenal on a desktop. His Studio Oslos and Master Oslos are on fire throughout Europe and Asia, but are just catching hold here in the US. The reason is that they are superlative transducers. Not only are they very versatile, but more importantly, they get it right...all of it.
This system centers on the Studio Oslo, the smaller of the two active desktops. Pairing it with the Wadia 121 DAC you can utilize the balanced connections of each, and the Wadia has a damn fine headphone amp to boot.
