CanJam SoCal 2019 – The Highlights

Kaldas Research

The Kaldas Research RR 1 Conquest has its reputation as the high-value electrostatic at $500. With the smaller Koss amplifier, there was an ample amount of speed and transparency. Exactly what you’d expect from an e-stat. There wasn’t a lot of meat on the bones – but plenty of texture. There wasn’t a lot of bass to be heard. Nothing super special here.

Moving onto the larger Mjolnir amplifier – and the story changes. It sounds amazing. There’s an ample amount of the aforementioned qualities – and BASS. The sound was also fuller and more fleshed out. It’s far more engaging versus the Koss amplifier. Pretty impressive.

I guess the moral of the story is: Get a better amplifier for the RR 1 Conquest. It might sound better than the combined cost of another electro-stat system.

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.
