BASE

  Brazilian loudspeaker manufacture BASE employs custom-made by French company Cabasse drivers in their designs. As Cabasse once used paper cones themselves, until they went to other designs for their current lineup. Therefore Cabasse is very familiar with designing high-end paper cones. So BASE has decided to offer two "family" of products. One is geared for accuracy while the other provides musical beauty. Having spent some time at this show to concentrate on the local offerings here in Brazil, music from BASE's C2B ($990 USD/pr.) was truly enjoyable and seen here with Sami Douek (owner of BASE). The C2B uses a 1" duocell tweeter and 7"pape cone (crossover point at 3.6 kHz).

 

Lando

Lando is another Brazilian loudspeaker manufacturer and the co-owners  Lando Milbers (right) and brother Grego (left) can be seen here with their three-way, four driver design called the LX190SE (2,400 Reals, or under $1,000 USD per pair). A 25mm silk soft-dome tweeter is mated to a 37mm matching silk soft-dome midrange. Rounding out the lineup are two 8" poly-coated paper cone woofers. While the entire cabinet is sealed, the bottom woofer is sealed within it's own space. In fact the gentlemen above are second generation loudspeakers guys as their father was also making loudspeakers in 1960's! Therefore manufacturing very good sounding high-quality speakers are not new to Lando.

 

 

Rounding out our Brazilian gear coverage that can be seen at the Clube do Áudio e Vídeo Hi-Fi 2001 shows in São Paulo is Audiopax's APX01 pre-amplifier (center) that uses a pair of 6SN7 tubes and provides three inputs and a tape loop. The Audiopax model 3880 amplifier (right and left) produce 28 wpc. per monoblock amplifiers and use two 12AT7 and two KT88 output tubes that operate in a very unique way. Too much to describe here, though you can see all the details at www.audiopax.com/CALM51.htm.

 

The Perpetual Technologies P*1A has arrived in Brazil, yet it was not within a system. Wish the Diva loudspeakers were here and they had full correction employed. This seems to be where the Perpetual Technologies equipment shines.

 

A myriad of Myryad including, from top to bottom, their MDV 200 DVD-Video player, MC100 CD player, MDP 500 digital pre-amplifier and two MA 360 six-channel power amplifier.

 

The Vienna Acoustic Mahler loudspeaker were sounding quite good. High-end reviewer Myles Astor of Ultimate Audio seems to have enjoyed these impressive loudspeakers very much as they were reviewed in Volume 3, Number. 3 of his magazine.

 

Due to the many e-mails concerning Clearaudio's new three motor, three belt Master Reference as announced here first worldwide yesterday, here is a photo for those who have been asking for it. Enjoy!

 

The GamuT D200 stereo amplifier is capable of reproducing 200 wpc. (8 ohms). Both single-ended (RCA) and balanced input (XLR) inputs are provided for while loudspeaker output is via WBT connectors... with a unique dual output. Two seats of binding posts appear at the rear of the unit. One output set is "Direct" and said to be used for ribbon or dynamic cone loudspeakers while a "Normal" output is for electrostatic loudspeakers and for general use. So what is the difference between Normal and Direct? There is a coil resistor network in the Normal output that most solid-state amplifiers have while the Direct does not. The chassis is made from stainless steel and is said to be non-magnet to further enhance the music reproduction qualities.

 

The Roksan Candy line. Not sure if i should begin singing the Police song "Roxanne" or the Bow Wow Wow song "I Want Candy". From the top,KC-1 CD player, KA-1 pre-amplifier.

 

Antique Sound Lab 805-based Explorer monoblock amplifier. This tube monoblock produces 45 wpc. using a single 805 output tube operating in single-ended triode. Interstage transformer-coupling is used as it audiophile-grade point to point wiring.
