Heathrow show in London!
« on: 16 Mar 2011, 02:46 am »
I don't know how many of the circle are in the UK but, if you're there come see us next week!

 Emmanuel of First Sound will be there with me and this will also be the debut of the Modwright KWA150SE! 

I just got one of mine back with the new SE upgrade and it is amazing.  effortless and clear. I was blown away right off by how easily and perfectly this amp handles the most difficult passages.  for those familiar with Daedalus the KWA150  SE upgrade is very similar in scope and qualitative improvement to the Daedalus All/Poly upgrade, it just bring the performance easily to the level of silly money amps!

anyone from AC who attends please say hi!

thanks,
lou

on my way!  spending the day in layover at the Vancouver airport. what an amazingly quiet airport! 

at the Heathrow show we will also be debuting the new Bolder/Daedalus SE speaker cables!  these are based on the internal wire design of the Daedalus speakers and are a prefect match.  they will be available direct only from Bolder or for Daedalus customers from Daedalus.  I'm pretty excited about these cables Wayne and I have been playing with this design for about a year and it is (with my speakers) incredibly musical and detailed.

the show was fun, it was quite small (30 rooms) but that made for a very relaxed time. we had a surprisingly good overall response to our room, and I continue to be impressed with the new Modwright SE amp. several people were convinced that it was a hybrid and asked about the tubes inside!
busy seeing London now, off to Scotland in two days!  will try to get links up in a week or so.
thanks, lou

That's a cool idea.  How could an owner resist that.

 I don't know about Lou and Emmanuel, but I had a really good time at the show and I think the room got a pretty favourable response from listeners. I think for them, it was another day at the office.

 Here is a link to the first report on the room;

  Review of the Heathrow show in this months HiFi News:

    "  American speaker brand Daedalus made a rare UK appearance.It's DA-RMA speakers are built of solid hardwood with dovetail joints. They produced a great sound with an AMR CD player, a First Sound dual mono Preamp with massive power supplies in separate boxes for each channel and the new Modwright KWA 150SE power amplifier"

  Not very long, but the same for all the rooms.

 A bit late, but I stumbled on another brief report from the April show, from The HiFi Critic magazine
