Show Report By Steven R. Rochlin


AGD Productions And Ocean Way At FLAX 2023 Another excellent showing by AGD of their Award-earning products.


  Alberto Guerra of AGD Productions is always a joy to see during shows. His warm welcome and innovative amplification and hi-res digital audio gear always delivers excellent sound. Enjoy the Music.com has reviewed quite a few prices of AGD gear for good reason, they are always exceptional sounding. It seemed he brought everything (and the kitchen sink) of gear, so the below listing feature a few highlights.



AGD Gran Vivace 400W KT120 GaNTube Monoblock $18,500/pr

AGD Gran Vivace SE $19,999/pr (as above with polished finish)

The Audion SE MKII $8,400/pr GaNTube 200W Monoblock

AGD Tempo di GaN $5,500 200W stereo amplifier

AGD Andante Pre-DAC Streamer Phono $12,999

Ocean Way Eureka speakers ($14,800 with stands)



Of note is their AGD Andante Pre-DAC Streamer Phono that easily plays a great role at the center of your home audio system. There are four analog inputs (phono included, three analog outputs for bi-amplification/etc., plus of course an excellent 32-bit/384kHz R2R DAC. Without a doubt the Andante Pre-DAC Streamer Phono stands as an exceptional control center for all your source gear.



There was more within this celebrated system and many who heard it during FLAX 2023 seemed to come away very impressed. Having read Enjoy the Music.com's very own music Professor in residence, Dr. Michael Bump, assessment of this system elsewhere I agree with his past assessment of this system.

He said, "Paired with the superb Ocean Way Eureka speakers by Allen Sides (via Ocean Way Recording Studios in Santa Monica), the presentation never ceases to amaze and impress. Within and beyond their price points, AGD offers some true giant-killers in high-end audio. Gorgeous, three-dimensional imaging extending well beyond the room, macro and microdynamics in spades, no noticeable sonic artifacts, all with lightning transient speed and tautness. Always an engaging listening experience."



My listening notes echo Michael Bump's writing, and heard a few attendees also mention this room and the wonderful music it reproduced. Am happy to say it earned by Best Of FLAX 2023 Award (amung many other awards AGD Productions have earned). Congratulations Alberto Guerra, you earned it.
