Nice Review of Axpona from TAS
« on: 1 May 2015, 11:04 pm »
Nice write up from Greg Weaver of TAS:

"Dropping by the Daedalus Audio/ModWright Instruments/WyWires room was very rewarding. Besides wanting to take a close look at the new ModWright PH-150 tube phonostage ($7900), I couldn’t resist the emotional magic that a ModWright-branded system can evoke. The source was the ModWright-modded Oppo BDP-105D ($2500 mod only) handing off to the all-tube Elyse DAC ($6900). The LS36.5 DM preamplifier, with PS36.5 all-tube power supply ($9995) powered the KWA150 Signature edition ($8490) amplifier, driving the Daedalus Audio Poseidon V.2 loudspeakers ($16,450­–$21,450/pr. depending on finish). The entire system was wired end to end with WyWires cables. I found myself irresistibly drawn in by the articulate, coherent, and harmonically rich sound it generated."

Wish I were there.

One of the rooms I enjoyed the most (if for only a couple of minutes - too many rooms, too little time).  But for $50,000 it should (unfortunately not terribly out of line).
