RMAF 2007 - Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2007 Report / Coverage
RMAF 2007
Friday Page 1

  Lowther America had a nice, refreshing system with their concept piece that uses a PM6A driver plus a pair of Seas W26 woofers. Nelson Pass designed the crossover to compensate for this open baffle design. The amplifier used is the First Watt amplifier ($2500) F3 hand-built by Nelson himself! This super sounding Class A zero feedback solid-state design was reviewed by our own senior editor Dick Olsher. Cabling is by Kimber, their Silver Select line, and the room guys here say the Kimber Kables sound excellent and also dropped the noise floor. See our review of the Lowther America Alerion Loudspeaker by clicking here. We also have a review of Nelson Pass' First Watt Model F1 current drive power amplifier as seen here.


Nelsen Pass

(Said in my best Jamaican accent) Why jes mon, here we have the PS Audio power cables as dreds mon. The zound of these Statement cables ($499/meter) is said to be like cool water running, so smooth and clean. While editor Steven R. Rochlin might not be Jamaican, his audiophile brothers down South welcome his new hairstyle, jes mon. Speaking of PS Audio power products, see a review of their Soloist by clicking here and PS Audio GCC-100 by clicking here.

Welcome to the wonderful world of hotel electricity and audio disasters as a DC spike had its way with one of the manufacturer's products. So what can you do but break out the meter and fix the unit.

Edge Audio decided the RMAF would be the first public showing of their GCD-2008 ($5288) CD player/transport that... Steven Norber is a straightforward guy so basically his simply states that mechanism, transport, and clock are improvements over previous designs plus the ram and how it is processed several seconds in advance has changed.

Tyler Acoustics had their Woodmere II floorstanding loudspeakers in artistic deep dark hand finished Italian Ebony wood. These are truly full range with D'Appolito configuration in this 185 lbs each cabinet. All Seas drivers and the critical midrange drivers use neodymium for the magnet structure. If you want super deep 25Hz bass, clean mid and silky-smooth highs, this could be the trip to happyville.

Cain & Cain is going strong in memory of Terry, who passed away 9 months ago, and the legend lives on with the cute little Noogi monitor & Spud subwoofer ($1600). The Noogie uses a 3-inch Fostex FF85K tweeter/midrange and 8-inch paper cone woofer. Included is a 25 wpc plate stereo amplifier for the highs and 50 watts for the woofer. Had a really nice, fast transient sound quality with balanced lower frequency support. Enjoy the Music.com, has reviews of the Cain & Cain Company Abby here and the IM-Ben review is here.

Ready to set the party tunes on fire is the Cain & Cain Abby in custom finish (around $4000 or so depending on design). Jimi Hendrix would be proud and makes me think if Terry is right now up there hanging out with the Master Of The Flaming Guitar.
