Washington, DC (Capital Audiofest Room 126) November 3, 2017 - MarkAudio-SOTA invites you to "hear our difference" at Capital Audiofest, November 3-5th, where we will be showcasing our unique, single driver Tozzi One & Tozzi Two loudspeakers, along with our full roster of tower and bookshelf loudspeakers. Offering the rich midrange that is typical of a wide-range, single speaker design, the Tozzi series of speakers are excellent for near-field listening whether mounted on a desktop, bookshelf, wall or tripod. Theyre the perfect combination of superb quality and affordability that will appeal to millennials looking to enter the audiophile market.
To provide listeners with a rewarding experience at the show, MarkAudio-SOTA will offer two separate demos. The first system teams the companys tower and bookshelf speakers with PS Audios Stellar Gain Cell DAC and Stellar S300 Power Amplifier. The Stellar Gain Cell DAC provides an exception analog preamplifier combined with a full-featured DAC. Fully balanced circuitry and a Class-A preamplifier result in a rich, full-bodied sound sent to the Stellar S300 amplifier. The amplifier employs a Class-A analog input stage with a Class-D output stage to ensure the speakers are driven with both grace and slam to produce outstanding sound.
MarkAudio-SOTAs second system will showcase the ability and affordability of the $445 Tozzi One loudspeakers with PS Audios new $499 Sprout integrated amplifier and VPI Industries $900 Cliffwood turntable for an excellent starter system that wont break the bank. The pure sound of Vinyl LPs will spin on VPIs new entry-level turntable that will feed the Sprouts internal phono stage. The little Sprout still offers numerous other inputs and a sizeable 50-Watt per channel built-in digital amplifier that offers more than enough to power speakers much larger than the Tozzis, at a price that will be as attractive as the sound quality. This total package, with a retail at less than $2000, will be awarded to one Capital Audiofest attendee that simply demos our show system in room 126.
"MarkAudio-SOTA is really excited to exhibit our new Tozzi One & Two near-field monitor speakers at the Capital Audiofest with two great partners PS Audio and VPI Industries," said Dwight Sakuma - President of MarkAudio-SOTA North America. "The highly detailed sound that this package offers from their stylish and compact profile is sure to impress the younger generation looking for an affordable way into the high-end, audiophile market."
MarkAudio-SOTA invites media to stop by our exhibition room (126), or schedule a private meeting, to demo the amazingly natural sound that comes from using wide-range drivers. Please contact Mike Wood or look for Mike or Dwight Sakuma in the MarkAudio-SOTA booth #126 at the show!
