NY AUDIO SHOW 2014 - STEREOPHILE - JOHN ATKINSON
My final room Sunday afternoon was that shared by Ayon, Legacy. AVM Audio, Accustic Arts, and USA Tube Labs. Not only did the last company's Tineo J horn speakers, with their powered stereo subwoofers operating below 70Hz($35,000/system) catch my eye, their sound, driven by Ayon's Titan mono amplifiers ($68,000/pair) and Spheris III preamp ($48,000), caught my ear. Yes, the "jump factor" offered by a horn system was in full evidence. But the frequency balance was also smooth and uncolored. John Mayer's "Gravity" sounded about as good as I have heard this track. The Titan uses a 602B triode for its output. Described as a "300B on steroids," this tube runs with 10kV on its plate in the Titan!
NY AUDIO SHOW 2014 - ENJOY THE MUSIC - RICK BECKER
Around the corner in the Brighton Beach room I chanced upon Vincent Belanger once again, playing his cello live to a recording of him playing. Once again, his live music was seamless with the recorded music coming from Tineo Mk-II wood horn loaded speakers from USA Tube Audio Labs driven by Ayon's top of the line Titan tube monoblocks putting out 75 watts. The preamp was either the new Polaris III or Spheris III model, each with a separate power regenerator and an Ayon CD player was stacked atop it. The Ayon gear from Austria is very highly regarded and it acquitted itself here very well. The elegant black and chrome theme carries through their entire line. I also noted the matched veneer on the complex architecture of the USA Tube Audio Labs speakers' very fine workmanship all the way around each speaker.
NY AUDIO SHOW 2014 - THE ABSOLUTE SOUND - ALAN TAFFEL
And while I don't generally lean to horn speakers, I did cotton up to the USA Tube Audio Tineo J Horn ($35k). These are 3-ways with outboard stereo subs. The combo sounded as warm and ravishing as its burnished wood finish. The blend between main speakers and subs was absolutely seamless. The horns were sourced by an Ayon Audio CD3X DAC/streamer/player/preamp ($13,500) and driven with great rhythm and transparency by a pair of Ayon Titan SET monoblocks ($68k/pair).
