Zesto Audio is making its debut appearance at the 2016 Capital Audio Fest with award winning lineup of the Andros 1.2 phono preamp, the Leto linestage preamp, and the Bia 120 power amp. All of Zesto Audio's models are tube designs that provide gorgeous tone, bold dynamics, and a huge soundstage along with the low noise and low distortion. The sonic beauty of the Zesto models is reflected in the dramatic visual appeal based on the looks of the grand piano. Each of the models presented at the CAF this year have won numerous prestigious awards from the audio press including Stereophile magazine’s "Analog Product of the Year” Finalist, Class A ratings and The Absolute Sound's “Product of the Year” and Golden Ear awards.

Audio Systems and Magnetism
High Fidelity Cables uses magnetic conduction technology to preserve the quality of audio signals and reproduce music more accurately.
Most people think of an audio system as an electrical device. It would be more accurate to call it a magnetic device. Electricity powers the components, but it's magnetism that makes the music. It is a magnetic force that moves your speakers, causing them to vibrate and create sound.
This magnetism at the end of your signal path actually begins at your wall outlet, and is present throughout your entire system. The AC (alternating current) power drawn from your wall produces a magnetic field. This field is actually a series of waves whose frequencies vary with the electrical signal. Electricity induces magnetism, and vice versa: the two are inseparable.

Look for something new!
