The Audio by Van Alstine and Salk Signature Sound Room
At one end of the room, Salk Signature Sound demoed its Soundscape 8 loudspeakers ($8000) along with a rack full of Audio by Van Alstine (AVA) components, whose chassis have been updated from their usual utilitarian black to a luxurious silver finish bringing them into the 21st century.
The source was a SalkStream Server external hard drive ($800) and separate Player ($1295). You can also use an off-the-shelf NAS for storage if you prefer.
The SalkStream player fed an AVA FET Valve Hybrid DAC ($2499). I was surprised it did not have a USB input which is de rigueur these days.
The DAC cascaded into an AVA FET Valve Hybrid preamplifier ($2499).
I could not tell whether the power amplifier was an AVA FET Valve Hybrid 400R ($2999) or 600R ($3499). They both use the same chassis.
At the other end of the room Salk showed his Supercharged SoundTowers ($3495) with the same compliment of AVA components in black. The mini-monitors are custom one-offs. No price was specified.
