CES 2013 Coverage

January 7, 2013

Absolare and Rockport

Probably the best sound at T.H.E Show was the Rockport Technologies Altair II loudspeakers ($100,000) driven by components from newcomer Absolare – the Absolare Passion preamplifier ($25,000) and the Absolare Passion 845 monoblocks ($37,500/pair). It was a big system in a big room. The only drawback was that it was being auditioned too loud.

 

The digital front end was all MSB and the vinyl front end was a Kodo The Beat turntable ($24,000) with a Reed 3P tonearm ($6500) fitted with a Lyra Atlas cartridge ($10,000). The phono preamp was the Allnic Audio H-3000 ($11,900).
