ABOUT THE $15K SYSTEM
This $15K system stands out because of the perfect compatibility and the insane VALUE of its two key components ... Andrew Jones' ELAC Flagship Adante AF61 floorstanding loudspeaker and Peter Madnick's new, and long-awaited ELAC Alchemy Electronics, the DPA-2 power amplifier and the meticulously matched PRE/DAC/Streamer - the DDP-2. These electronics deliver just about everything one could want ... very significant power output from the power amplifier, that is bridge-able to Mono if desired, the latest cutting edge DAC, a great full function Preamp, streaming functionality, balanced inputs and outputs ... and more.
What about the Adante AF61 speakers ? ...well just read the reviews about these 120lb prodigies !
In this system we have included two DPA-2s in Mono configuration delivering crazy performance ! The Adante's do not only ROCK, they render ALL music genres beautifully which in itself is an exceptional feat. Andrew has delivered a REAL WINNER here....and at a price which defies imagination.
Then, we incorporated one of the very best Music Servers available - the INNUOS Zenith MK3. Not only is this ROON / UPNP server incredibly easy to set-up and use, it is blissfully musical, throwing a huge and super-quiet soundstage and all the detail retrieval one can possibly expect.... The INNUOS servers are truly exceptional front ends. We incorporate these into almost all of our systems.
This system is suitable for rooms from a minimum size of 15ft x 20 ft, and up to about 20ft x 30ft.
Sound characteristics ? POWERFUL ! ... if asked, GENTLE and delicate when required. This system, although tubes are absent, will do vocals beautifully, but if you listen to Large Classical Orchestral, Rock or Heavy Metal your will be "blown away"....literally. Uber-confident Solid State Assertiveness without the Nasties ...smile :=)
BTW, the AF61s are HEAVY ...120lbs each. So, if your listening room is on the first or second floor getting them up there is WORK. There is a great alternative however : A pair of ADANTE AS61 monitors plus an Adante 3070 powered subwoofer, complete with DSP and remote APP. This solution pretty much gives the same result as a pair of AF61 floorstanders, is easier to move around, and is offered at the same price.
Have a Turntable ? Add Peter Madnick's new $999 ELAC DPP-2 Phono Stage - another Star Performer.
