RMAF 2013 Show Report -- Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2013
RMAF 2013 Show Report (Rocky Mountain Audio Fest)
Bonus Coverage Part 1




Come see a video of the Ayre Acoustics room by clicking here. This exhibit earned my personal Best Room @ RMAF 2013 Award.


Wavelength Audio had their Europa, which the company feels is the vision for the future as both a digital and analog product. It has three analog inputs, TosLink, Asynchronous USB and a StreamWerxs powered Network port (Ethernet [with SD Card interface] or Wi-Fi). The analog and digital selections are available from the front panel or via the remote http or app interface. Volume, Mute, Balance, Power and selection are all available. The digital engine is powered by the latest ESS ES9018 DAC chip. The volume control is handled in the analog domain with 1dB steps. The 71A gain tubes are used for a sweet 3 dimensional sound that can drive any amplifier. You can learn more about StreamWerx from this YouTube video.

Wavelength Audio also had the  Crimson HS Modular USB DAC, which is the flagship DAC for the company. The battery powered versatile DAC module gives the Crimson an endless upgrade path for it’s users. Available in both Balanced (6H30) or Single Ended (71A) the Crimson delivers in dynamics like no other. Available with optional volume control. The Cosecant HS Modular USB DAC is where it all started 10 years ago as Wavelength Audio/USB DACs first USB DAC product. The Cosecant has proved itself time and again as one of the best high end USB DACS on the market. The transformer coupled output can be set by switches for single ended or balanced operation. The Cosecant is available with several DAC modules, now standard with the Quotient. Available with optional volume control. Their Brick USB DAC with tube reactor follower output is one of the company's best selling DACS. The Brick offers our asynchronous USB technology for one of the most realistic tube sounding DACS. Lastly, the Nuetrino is Wavelength Audio's new USB powered DAC that offers both PCM and DSD capabilities in a small package. The solid-state DAC based on the ESS ES9018 and offers discrete transformer coupled output to isolate your audio system from the common ground of your computer system.










Synergistic Research was using a Bose Wave radio with their HFT and FEQ ($299 for 5 and $750 respectively). Was intriguing and sounded quite nice actually. Amazing how some tweaks and perhaps digital processing can make even the Bose Wave radio sound impressive. We do indeed live in interesting times.
