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.
