LKV Research Press Release
Listen to five world premier products in the LKV Room at the Capital Audiofest: so much to discover, see and hear. Please join us.
Bill will preview his newest phono pre-amplifier, the Veros VNL. Not only does it offer better performance than the now-discontinued Veros One, but Bill also has plans for a retrofittable, current-mode module option. Its VNL PWR linear power supply will stun you. Listen and then whine about the wait until early 2022! Downstream of the Veros VNL will be the LKV Line One Control Amp and both the Veros PWR+ and the new PWR 3 amp driving Joseph Audio Pulsar2 Graphene speakers, but not at the same time! Upstream, Basis Audio will introduce to the world its new Bravo turntable with Vector tonearm. Finley Audio will provide speaker cable and interconnects, including the world premiere of its Cirrus speaker cable. Also, Finley will be hosting a two-winner raffle for its Cirrus and Stratus power cords. The Cirrus has a price of over 1 k$. We’d love to sign in ourselves, but obviously cannot. #$!@#!$%. LKV also offers a raffle gift. The Second Generation of vibration control blocks and wafers by Les Davis Audio will receive their first international showing by way of Ocean Audio. Five world premiers, not a bad way to welcome back audiophiles. Don’t forget to sign in for the Finley & LKV raffle! Picking music selections is tricky. We love Cassandra Wilson. Expect a few albums of hers. Let’s compare her to Kandace Springs. For dramatic effects showing off the PWR+, we played cuts from Dafos and First Takes in 2019. We spin the UHQR version of Kind of Blue. Yes, everyone knows Miles, but we want to see if we can retrieve additional information from the disk for your musical enjoyment. From Impex, Sinatra’s 1949-1950 album will surprise you with its clarity. If something else intrigues you, let us know. We may be able to pick up an LP from the Marketplace. DC’s Metro connects to the Hilton. Visit, relax, and enjoy Room 508.
