Positive Feedback Online Article by Jeff Day Quote:"To give you an idea of the level of artistry involved, Christopher's Artisan Fidelity Garrard 301 Statement Plinth easily rivals the fit & finish of my Gibson Custom Shop Brazilian Rosewood & Adirondack Spruce Advanced Jumbo guitar, and with a musical prowess to match its artisan musical instrument-like level of craftsmanship." Michael Fremer quote: "I will say for the record and on this video, this is so far the best sound I have heard at the show." 2015 AXPONA Chicago Sunday late afternoon enjoying music playing in the Artisan Fidelity room. http://www.analogplanet.com/content/artisan-fidelity-turntables-drew-me-sound-made-me-stayArtisan Fidelity Garrard 301 Schedule 1 Grease Bearing and standard series African Wenge single Panzerholz tonearm configured plinth finished in high gloss clear coat (Please note: Reed tonearm not included). The comprehensively restored Garrard 301 Schedule 1 Grease Bearing model turntable shown above in the photographs is also included with the plinth along with matching Panzerholz armboard as shown and Stillpoints Ultra SS isolation devices. To the best of our knowledge, no higher quality Garrard 301 wood based plinth currently exists on the market, period. The conventional Russian Birch based core internal design architecture ensures silent backgrounds and ample dampening for mass loading and direct coupling of the non-suspended Garrard 301 idler drive. The displayed configuration is ready to accommodate a single, nine to twelve inch effective length tonearm. Tonearm board milled from resonant damped German Panzerholz. Like our Statement models, although the void-less plinth design is technically high mass, it is not in any way over damped, unlike many recent designs which often inhibit liveliness in favor of darkness and deadness, robbing the Garrard 301 of its inherent life, vibrancy and energy. Our conventional composite Russian Birch recipe simply allows the maximum energy of the musical landscape to flow without hindrance. Our hand selected team consists of 3rd generation master woodworkers combined with a state of the art machining and finishing facility. Our Garrard 301 plinth designs were carefully tuned by ear and finely developed over a period of 4 years for the ultimate musical expression and tonal characteristics.

JADE AUDIO ULTIMATE MOONTAILS IC'S with Bocchino RCA's!
JADE AUDIO MOONTAILS ULTIMATE INTERCONNECTS WITH BOCCHINO MAJESTIC RCA CONNECTORS! For sale is a Jade Audio brand new MoonTails Ultimate 1 meter pair of interconnects with Bocchino Audio B-11 aka The Majestic RCA connectors. Retail price factory direct is $1200.00. Now for $950.00 you'll get an extremely musical pair of interconnects, free registered Air Mail shipping to anywhere in the world. These were briefly used, mostly to shoot photos for the website. More about the Ultimate MoonTails: Jade Audio has reverse engineered their revolutionary audio cables to build an entry level interconnect with many of the attributes of their all pure Gold Reference cable at an entry level price point. This resulted in the MoonTails. The MoonTails deliver the rich magic midrange of all their gold cables with a deep and wide soundstage which provides excellent imaging. Bass is tight and deep with superb dynamic transients. Highs are open and fully extended with nice colourful sparkle. Speed and tempo is very good with a well defined leading edge to the notes. The background is dark with very little noise or haze which delivers good separation and definition within the soundstage. Piano is one of the most difficult instruments to properly reproduce. The MoonTails take on the challenge with excellent results. While the leading edge of notes is tight and well defined, a full body develops followed by a long rich decay. The high notes are free of any glare, yet are fully extended with a realistic vivacity. Midrange notes are portrayed as expected: lush, rich and liquid. Bass notes retain the excellent tight leading edge and pack a deep, powerful punch as the hammer hits the strings. The shape of the note is solid and full with again excellent decay. Horns pose another tough instrument for electrically reproduced music. The MoonTails reveal a terrific bite and texture to the notes and offer a three dimensional, solid and lifelike image. The midrange truly excels, making for an excellent reproduction with a colourful presentation. The most important aspect of music reproduction to Jade Audio are vocals. The MoonTails project these with excellence, beyond the competition. Here you will find a lifelike performance with the texture and depth of the human voice. The imaging shows its strength with a solid three dimensional appearance that is properly presented within the soundstage. This is where the true magic of gold comes to light, providing the quality presentation you would expect from Jade Audio. The MoonTails are constructed using 99.99% pure gold plated OCC copper wire; and 99.99% pure silver plated OCC copper wire. These are used in combination to make up both the positive and negative conductors and are then sleeved and wrapped in Jade Audio’s patented design. Gold plated Furutech connectors are used to provide the best possible connection to your equipment. Jade Audio firmly believe MoonTails shall become the entry level interconnect against which all other cables will be judged. It is simply remarkable what is possible for a very affordable price of $550.00 for a one meter RCA pair, and $800.00 for an XLR pair. The Ultimate MoonTails are building on the strengths of the original MoonTails. With an already perfect recipe some extra ingredients were thrown into the mix and a whole different dish is being presented. The icing on the cake are the fabulous Majestic RCA connectors from Bocchino Technologies Audio Australia. They give the MoonTails an aesthetic boost while the sound approaches that of Jade Audio's top of the range cables. These interconnects rightly deserve their place on the upper echelons of affordable high-end. "Jade Audio’s cables are sensitive and delicate souls, not exactly built for the studio. This is a deliberate move on the part of Jade Audio, because the company feels over-engineering of the cable would undermine the performance it gets. - Alan Sircom - Hi-Fi+ - Issue 101" Any questions or requests, please do not hesitate to contact me!

Silversmith Audio Palladium 6 ft Speaker Cable
Other Silversmith cables also listed! Additional lengths and styles available as well. Feel free to contact me if you need a cable that I do not have listed. Make me a reasonable offer! This is a cable rarely seen for sale online. Reviewers and owners alike commonly view Silversmith cables as the most musical cables ever made - the best in every aspect of audio reproduction. This cable hands down outperforms the Nordost Odin, Transparent Opus, and all other multi-$10k cables (Kubala Sosna, MIT, Siltech, Crystal, etc) yet is a 1/10 the price. This is your rare opportunity to get an ex-dealer demo cable at an incredible discount. Original aluminum flight case is included. This is a newer set of cables with the reinforced laminated foil ends. An excerpt from Stereo Times: While I was expecting a positive first reaction to the Palladiums, I was in no way prepared for the startling affect the Palladiums would impart on my system. Typically, the inclusion of a new set of competitive wires will create some shift in the sonic picture from what came before, perhaps revealing or emphasizing different aspects of the performance - greater dynamics, deeper bass, lightening or darkening of the tonal balance, etc. The Palladium’s taken together as a full cabling system, however, wiped the canvas almost completely clean and rendered a new composition. Nearly every aspect of the sonic picture, top to bottom, front to back and left to right, had been exposed as being in one way or another touched by the distortions of previous cables. While I had a very positive experience as a result of the Palladium’s beguiling neutrality, I would imagine that some could not. If you have been using wire as some sort of system equalizer, and let’s face it, we all have, the Palladiums may cause a case of severe upgrade whiplash. If your components exhibit any, and I mean any sonic failings, the Palladiums will leave them utterly exposed in a way that is impossible to deny. The Palladiums are truly the anti-tone controls of the wire world. In my system, for example, the Palladium’s neutrality further exposed each components weakness without adding any of its own signature to compound the problems. From the Jeff Rowland Coherence’s slightly softened low-end definition and dynamics to the Rowland 302’s rising upper-midband and lower treble, each component was rendered as more of itself than ever. On the positive side, the good in each component was further revealed and allowed to shine through, creating on balance, a huge slice of sonic Heaven. The synergy of the system brought about by the Palladiums is undeniable. Music was as liquid and as grainless as can be. Lightning quick transients are presented without any unnatural exaggeration whatsoever. Dynamic ease, jarring explosiveness, tonally rich yet supremely transparent and revealing, the Palladium’s bring about a cohesiveness that we all speak too, yet rarely fully achieve. Like a live musical event, the Palladium’s bring together all of these typically mutually exclusive traits harmoniously, and in equal part. Needless to say, the exact opposite is true when the recording is poor. Flat has never sounded flatter, compressed has never sounded more restricted and so on. I realize most these claims are made over and over in reviews. The Palladium’s redefine these proclamations and sets the bar impossibly high. Typically, I would site sections of any given disc to illustrate these particular points. Yet this is one of those rare occasions when that exercise is rendered insignificant. On disc after disc, imaging, frequency extension, dynamics, truth in timbre, and vast amounts of space are all injected with such a heightened realism and obviousness. After a very short time, all I could do was just sit there, shaking my head in amazement.

SPATIAL AUDIO HOLOGRAM M1 Turbo Used - Open Baffle High...
Beautiful Used M1 Turbos in BlackThe Flagship of the HOLOGRAM line of open baffle, high efficiency speakers. The M1 continues the ground-breaking performance of the Hologram M2, introduced at Axpona 2014, but in a full range, 15 inch driver-based design. The point source, 2-way achieves in-room response to 32Hz and is an all analog, completely passive design, eliminating the need for DSP equalization and bi-amping. Twin 15 inch driver units and 95 dB sensitivity create stunning dynamics while retaining the smooth and 3D presentation of the smaller M2 model, which was a hit at 2014 Axpona and the California Audio Shows: Steven Stone of the Absolute Sound Magazine remarked: The Best Sound (For the Money) – It was a dead heat between the Emerald Physics CS3 mark II ($3500US/pr) and the Spatial Hologram M2 ($2,000US/pr) rooms. Clayton Shaw designed both speakers which conquered their hotel room sonic shortcomings with aplomb.•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••New 2015 Review just out from Home Theater ShackConclusionsThe Spatial Audio M1 Turbo Version 2 dipole speaker was a favorite for me at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest last year, and is a strong contender in their price range. I have become a fan of dipole speakers for the soundstage and imaging possibilities, especially with a concentric design like the M1. Of all the speakers I have evaluated, I have never placed speakers as widely as I did the M1 and still ended up with such a cohesive and natural soundstage with such evenness, such width and depth, and with such precise pinpoint imaging. For the soundstage and image clarity chasers out there, I present the M1 for your consideration as a high efficiency, high clarity, high performance soundstage and imaging monster. Link to Full Review: http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/speaker-subwoofer-reviews/117994-spatial-hologram-m1-turbo-version-2-speaker-review.html#post1159290 RMAF 2014 Review by Wayne Meyers - Home Theater Shack"When I hear someone make a claim like, "Box speakers are finally obsolete," my reaction is that marketing hype can state pretty much anything. Then again, it is hard to argue with real results.I was initially drawn to the Spatial Audio Hologram M1 speakers by their shape, a 36" high by 20" wide rectangle with grill material revealing a pair of 15" drivers, the surface leaning back to point up at the listening position. The M1 is a dipole design, two-way, with two 15-inch mid/woofers and a 800-Hz-and-up compression tweeter concentric with the upper 15-incher. The soundstage and imaging were excellent - the soundstage was simply HUGE, and image clarity was razor sharp. Frequency response was exceptionally smooth and natural. I commented that I could not hear the tweeter at work at all. Clayton Shaw, the designer, was proud of his work on the custom 1.75 inch compression tweeter, with its soft polymer surround and ferrofluid damping. The result was an extremely life-like upper-mid and high end. The more I listened, the more impressed I was by the M1 pair. I ended up adding them to my I Want One! list., one of two items at the show to earn that award. They almost completely disappeared in the room, were exceptionally clean and natural.I asked Clayton to crank them up, and they delivered higher volumes effortlessly, with a sense of supreme control over all aspects of the sound. And they went and deep into the bass range. The design is entirely passive, requiring no DSP or active crossover, which is not a huge deal to me either way, but the sense of unified integration was particularly enthralling for an all-passive design. The dynamic range was also noteworthy. Clayton talked about his preference for high-efficiency designs, that they are better at giving the same response and sonic qualities at all volumes as a result of lower power dissipation and heat build-up. Years ago I looked askance at dipoles and and panel speakers as unnecessary oddities. It is speakers like the Hologram 1 that swayed me to the other side. I want one! Make that a pair.

As you mentioned, they were a bit tight when I first played them but they've opened up beautifully. Definitely the best speakers I've ever owned. The Lotus ice white gloss paint looks great and the M1s are truly pieces of art. Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions, agreeing to apply the Lotus paint, suggesting the gray cloth (which looks great), and most of all for providing an excellent product! Hyon C. Weatherby Lake MORe: Spatial Audio Hologram M1 Turbo I can't stop listening to this system. I didn't comment on the looks of the speakers in my last post. They are gorgeous. Modern looking, expertly finished, and unimposing. If Clayton were to distribute these via retail chains, I suspect every other speaker manufacturer would shit their pants. Their WAF factor is off the charts. When you factor that with the fact that they punch WAY above their price point the rest of the industry has much to be nervous about. While everyone else is regurgitating the same design from the beginning of speaker development, Clayton has revolutionized speaker design. After listening to my M2's for a few hours I concur that box speakers are now obsolete. Do NOT audition these speakers if you have no intention of buying them. They will make it nearly impossible to go back to your conventional speakers. Once the image height lifts, every album I listen to will sound like an intimate live performance in a small club or coffee shop. The open baffle lends to a diffuse sound with plenty of air between instruments and textured vocals, yet the imaging is still pin point. You get that live sound, but are still able to identify clearly where the singer is placed along with the band. This is not a subtle effect that will be lost on anyone. Listening to "Billy Jean" by Michael Jackson earlier I had to pick my jaw up off the floor. His voice sounded pure, textured, and authentic. The sound stage was wide though the image height is limited to the height of the speakers. "Jam" also from MJ is incredible via these speakers as is "Black and White." I highly recommend listening to these three tracks through the Spatials. "Jam" is just fun through my M2's. "Black and White" opens with a son listening to music late at night and the father yelling at him to turn it down. A few seconds in the father bangs on the son's door and a few seconds later bangs on his door again. Both times the door banging is utterly realistic and fun. Keep in mind that I am powering these speakers thru a $600 tube integrated that generates a mere 10 watts per channel. I have not turned up the volume past 1/4 so far and it is plenty loud with reserve current available. Total system cost came to roughly $5k. Plenty of money, but I have auditioned systems that used speaker cables costing more. I can't think of a system I have had more fun listening to than this one currently and it is only a few hours old. The best is still to come. There is no thinking with these speakers, it is all about enjoying. You completely forget that you are listening to a "system" and just listen to music. In the end, isn't what this hobby is supposed to be about? To be able to get there at the price offered makes these speakers hands down the best value on the audio market right now IMO. GaryZabPart Time Audiophile’s Scot Hull was at Axpona:As to the sound … well. This is one of those moments when you’re forced to scratch your head and wonder aloud, with a giant WTF bubble over your head, as to why all those other rooms were having such trouble. Here, the presentation felt accurate, linear, and remarkably open. No bloom or boom. Sitting in the sweet spot, I heard nothing out of place or out of character. I’m certain I’d opt for the Turbo, myself, and I’m quite sure there’s even more room for a Twin Turbo version, with even more mo’ betta parts. But here’s the kicker — that price is not irrelevant. $2k? Seriously? It’s like wandering into a Bang and Olufsen showroom and being told that they just decided to take a zero off the end of the price because Reasons. Your only valid response is to say, “Rock On.” And if that was a little opaque, let me make this clear — this was a very convincing demo. Yowza.

Meridian DSP Spkr/Controller Front End System
This has been our "Rolls Royce" premiere Theater System for many years. The one constant change has been the Controller/Processor. These units have been upgraded to the latest version. Included are (1) pair of Silver DSP-7000's, a Black DSP-5500HC Center Channel, and the new G65 Controller/Processor. The original retail price for all these components was just over $50k. We have the original boxes for the Controller and one of the DSP-7000's. All these units are in beautiful mint condition (as all our demo product is). If you're looking into getting into super hi-end performance for a fraction of the cost, this is it! If you're local, please feel free to visit our showrooms to witness this system in action. Needless to say, it's VERY impressive!
