Room 5007 — Vinnie Rossi Audio / Volti Audio / Triode Wire Labs
While I was there, the stars of the show in Room 5007 were the records spinning on the Palmer 2.5 turntable. And isn’t that as it should be? The incredibly knowledgeable Al Pryor of Mack Avenue Records played two LPs by Cécile McLorin Salvant almost in their entirety: no one left the room. I rushed out to buy the LPs immediately afterward. That is not to denigrate the equipment in the room; after all, it had a key role in what we heard. Vinnie Rossi showed off his LIO modular-do-everything front end ($6,775 with DAC and phono stage at the show) and VR-120 MOSFET amplifier ($4,995). With the Volti Audio Vittora horns, calling on the spirit of Paul Klipsch, it all made for wonderful music that impressed with the sense of space (not always easy in show conditions). Triode Wire Labs cables linked it all together: while one cannot discern the sound of anything with accuracy in a quick listen, these cables are nicely made and quite affordable in high end terms. Another room where I could have spent a lot of time if it were possible. Tanks everyone for a fun, small show and look forward to attending the New York Audio Show next year!
