ABOUT THE $15K SYSTEM
This $15K system stands out because of the perfect compatibility and the insane VALUE of its two key components ... Coherent Audio's FIFTEEN Prime/Neo loudspeaker and AMC Weltronics' Electronics. These include the AMC CVT 2100 MK2 Mono KT88/6550 power amplifier and their meticulously matched Unity Gain FET/Tube Preamplifier - the AMC CVT 1030 MK2.
These electronics deliver just about everything one could want ... in particular, the very significant 160W /pc of tube power output from this system's pair of mono-bridged power amplifiers. If you have doubts about how real these watts are, just consult the German reviews where everything is fanatically tested to death ... these tests indicate that soft clipping starts at 188W / pc !
And the AMC Combo comes with a few high-performance bonus features :
The AMC CVT 1030 MK2 preamp sports a very good MM / MC Phono Stage ... and one hell of a Head Amp which will drive almost any Headphone... for example, the notorious vintage AKG 240 Sextett that is a favorite amongst the Metal Head folks. And .. last but not least, the HPA's output is routed through the Line Preamplifiers Tube output stage !
Our latest "sweetheart" DAC, the Swiss MERASON Frerot is another "blockbuster" component, and at it's humble price of $1,249 it also offers balanced outputs. For this system we included the Linear PSU upgrade which takes the sonics to yet a more stupendous level. Read more about our awesome experiences with this DAC on our website's Merason Frerot page.
The Coherent Audio FIFTEEN's 15" Radian woofer "ROCKS", but this loudspeaker renders ALL music genres beautifully -- which in itself is an exceptional feat. These speakers literally "disappear" and are super "spatial" ... and for the musical energy they deliver to a "holographic soundstage", they do this at a price which defies imagination. You may ask why would you need 160W of tube power for this speaker. Well, its unique concentric Radian driver's specification allows it to operate at as little as 2W and as high as 400W ... and if it needs to do all music genres (including Hard Rock), we sort of prefer it with as much power as is affordable ... and the AMC CVT 2100MK2 Mono amplifiers are very affordable ! What more can I say about its sound ? ... this customizable Canadian 102dB speaker is a musical prodigy...it has Class..Class..Class !
Finally, we incorporated one of the finest Music Servers available - the INNUOS Zen 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 will do vocals beautifully, but if you listen to Large Classical Orchestral, Rock or Heavy Metal your will not be "disappointed". The system delivers an Uber-confident Assertiveness without the Nasties ...smile :=)
BTW, the Coherent Audio FIFTEENs, at 60 lbs each, are relatively "LIGHT". So, these are really quite easy to position properly in your listening environment. The only downside is that its takes about 8 weeks to build a pair to your specs, fine tune it, and break it in before delivery.
