The Atma-Sphere, Classic Audio, and Stahl-Tek Room
It is a given that Atma-Sphere and Classic Audio will be show partners. It would be nice to see them teamed-up with other manufacturers for a change. Shown are the Classic Audio T1.4 loudspeakers ($59,500).
Now that high-quality Teflon tube sockets are available, Ralph Karsten has reintroduced the Nova MA 1.5 amplifier (($12,000).
In addition to spinning vinyl on a Kuzma turnstable and arm, digital playback was available courtesy of Stahl-Tek, a company that you see at shows but otherwise never hear mentioned. Shown is their Opus transport ($35,000).
The matching Opus DAC ($35,000) is on bottom. Stahl-Tek introduced the more affordable Arria DAC ($12,900) (top) at the show.
