The Asthetix – Clearaudio – Hansen Audio Room

This was one of the better rooms. Hansen Audio’s Prince V2 loudspeakers sounded magical driven by Asthetix Saturn Series electronics and a Clearaudio turntable:

Clearaudio lent its Innovation Compact turntable and a pair of tonearms. The tonearm on the left rear is a Scorpio Helios ($950) with a Clearaudio Maestro MM cartridge, and the tonearm on the right is a Clearaudio Universal ($5000) with a Benz LP cartridge.

The phono preamp for the Scorpio Helios/Maestro combination was the new Fosgate Signature:

The phono preamp for the Universal/Benz LP combination was the Aesthtix Rhea. The Aesthetix Calypso linestage routed the signals from both the Fosgate Signature and the Rhea to a pair of Aestheix Atlas stereo amplifiers for bi-amping the Hansen Princes.
