Florida Audio Expo 2019 Show Report

House Of Stereo / Wolf Audio Systems
Featuring Ayre, VPI, Van Den Hul, Wireworld Cable, Quad, Focal, Bob Carver, Bel Canto, Audience Cables, TAD And KEF.
Florida Audio Expo 2019 show in Tampa, Florida.
Report By Steven R. Rochlin



  House Of Stereo is a longstanding retail store located in Jacksonville, Florida, and they had two glorious rooms at Florida Audio Expo 2019. Bob Carver's 350 amplifiers drove the highly musician KEF Blade 2 floorstanding speakers. Adept Response power filtering joined wolf audio system bits.





Positioned on the short wall, this system sounded gentle, with lovely micro-dynamic and the sound was more laid back and extremely musical.



Another House Of Stereo room had TAD Labs Micro Evolution 1 speakers being driven by the new Ayre EX-8 integrated amplifier. Once again the sound was beautiful, with an ultra-wide soundscape... and I'm not even in that proverbial sweet spot! Am coming to realize that without a doubt there's something about the room here at Florida Audio Expo 2019 that favors the short wall setups.
