This was without a doubt the most musical system we have had at any show. It could do things that no other at the show could IMO, including:
1) even, accurate reproduction of any music at any scale, from solos to large scale
2) focused, acoustical wavefronts at low frequencies that took your breath away
3) limitless and effortless dynamic range
4) Ultra-low bass distortion
#2 I have never experienced with ANY system, even my own.
The room was corrected using full Amarra.
Many told us it was the best of the show, but I did not get out much to see other rooms.

Other impressive sounds were:
Wells Audio SS amp. Amazing sweetness and dynamics for a SS amp. If he told me it was tubes, I would not have suspected any different.
Ayre A/D converter. They mastered a "Take 5" track from vinyl that equalled or exceeded my own mastred from reel-to-reel. This is what I rcommend for anyone doing vinyl to digital mastering.
