The Ypsilon – Bergman – Tidal Room

This was one of my top ten rooms. The German-made Tidal Contriva speakers ($71,000) were stunning, even in an untreated room.

Ypsilon’s new DHT mirror-finished tube monoblocks ($71,000/pair) put a smile on everyone’s faces:

This is Ypsilon’s CDT-100 top-loading transport ($25,000):

The Ypsilon design team was having a creative block when they settled on the plain-looking VPS-100 phono preamplifier (top) ($25,000) and PST 100 linestage (bottom) ($36,000):

Bermann’s air bearing Sindre turntable with linear tracking tonearm ($20,000) is a work of art. It sounds pretty good too:

On the left is Ypsilon’s MC series moving coil step up transformer ($2,700), and center and right are a pair of BC1 single-ended to balanced transformers. Each weighs probably 20 lbs.
