Since I am currently exhibiting at two smaller, back-to-back shows, I am starting this *combined* show coverage thread for CAF2019 (completed) and NYAS2019 (this weekend!).
Our room at CAF2019 (and the one for NYAS2019 this weekend) was very similar to RMAF, except we teamed up with Triode Wire Labs for all system cabling.
- Vinnie Rossi L2i-SE with L2 Dac installed (using TaK TA-300B tubes)
- Innuos Statement Music Server
- QLN Prestige Three SE loudspeakers
- Triode Wire Labs cabling (all Pete' top-of-the-line Power, Speaker, USB, and Ethernet cabling)
- Gigawatt Power Conditioner
It was a smaller room, but we achieved a wide and deep soundstage in the midfield to compliment the incredibly natural and involving sound of this system!
Here is some early CAF2019 coverage:https://parttimeaudiophile.com/2019/11/02/capital-audiofest-friday-highlights-caf-2019/
Vinnie Rossi brought the same system that won my Best Sound award at RMAF – his L2 Integrated, QLN speakers and Innuos Statement music server. The only change here was the Triode Wire Labs cabling. Same incredible soundstage, just everything i could possibly want sound-wise.

Thank you Marc!
PS: Marc now has the L2 Integrated Amp with L2 Phonostage in his possession for review!
