This was also my favorite room at CAF 2019. Unfortunately, I was only able to listen to two songs on Friday before moving on. I missed Saturday and Sunday morning at the show due to family obligations. By the time I had returned on Sunday afternoon, the room was out of order. Apparently, someone had forgotten to mute the preamp before futzing with the turntable and that in turn blew out one of the tweeters, thus rendering the loudspeakers incapable of producing nice sounds. Needless to say, I was sorely disappointed.
Despite the entire system being a relative bargain as far as high end HiFI is concerned, I'm still not yet in a position to drop $6k on speakers or $10k+ for the entire system (sans source components like turntable or CD player). However, I am saving my pennies and I eagerly await the next opportunity to demo this fine system. Nothing I heard at CAF 2019 had the dynamics, soundstage or fun factor that this system had. I'm not a HiFi reviewer so my vocabulary is rather limited. But it had this great sense of space. It was spacial. And special, too.
