Room 630: Stereo Haven, Leben, Falcon Loudspeakers, Line Magnetic, Well Tempered Lab. This configuration with the Falcon LS3/5a 15-ohm BBC Licensed speakers ($2,195/pr) driven by the Line Magnetic LM508 Integrated amplifier (SET 805) ($4,995) was one of my top picks from the show, regardless of price. Voices sound so natural and properly textured while still being able to layer the musical complexities effortlessly. I hope to hear these again very soon.

Mr. Audio Bacon himself. An open-minded electrical engineer and software developer by trade. I have an obsession with the enjoyment of all things media - specifically in the realm of music and film. So much heart and soul (and money) go into the creation of this artistry. My aim is to find out which products get me closer to what the musicians and directors intended.
