The Olive, Rogue Audio, Silnote, Tyler Acoustics and VPI Room

Tyler Acoustics brought along its rather large Decade D20s. Thanks to dual woofers and a low-frequency extension of 25Hz, they were able to fully pressurize the room and deliver convincing sound, helped in part a well by the 1″ fabric dome tweeter. The price on the website is $10,500, but if you call directly you may be quoted as low as $6500. Just make sure you have the requisite space for them in your listening room.

For analog playback, they brought along the now out of production VPI HW19 turntable, and used a Rogue Audio Stealth phono preamp ($895).

Digital playback was handled by an Olive music server.

All of the sources passed through the the Rogue Audio Tempest III integrated amplifier ($2995) on the way to the Decade D20s.

Cabling was provided by Silnote.
