Zesto Audio Tessera Phono Stage and Eros Monoblocks
Room 430: MSB Technology. Always been impressed with the resolution, smoothness, and clarity of the Select DAC. Unfortunately, at ~$130,000 with all the options, I’ll have to take out a second mortgage. MSB’s room always provides world-class sound at these shows, this year’s AXPONA was no exception.
A few familiar faces 😉 I believe Jason Serinus and Jana Dagdagan were (trying) to record a binaural recording. I would’ve been your Hodor guys!
Room 434: Raidho Acoustics. Chord electronic stack. These Raidho Acoustics D-4.1 speakers ($125,000-$140,000) were a wonderful pairing with the BluDAVE (~$25,000).
