Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2004
Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2004



 What happens when you mix four 10-inch woofers, forty 4-inch midranges,/and thirty-two 1-inch soft dome tweeters. You get the McIntosh XRT28 of course ($19,200) with its 4-ohm impedance and 88dB sensitivity. They stand at just over 76 inches high and weigh in at 124 lbs.


SP Technology Loudspeaker had their new large floorstanding Revelation ($17,000 or so depending on finish). The unit has a frequency response from25Hz to 18.5kHz with 88dB sensitivity. It is claimed to offer a very lifelike presentation, the music "just sounds right" according to their representative.


Aperion Audio had their piano black 522D-PT power towers ($1,198) and the wood are a tweaky prototype called the 633 (around $800 or so). This is sneak peek to Aperion's newest floorstander and a quick listen told me they sounded fast, responsive, and quite dynamic. Once the production version is released you can be assured we will want a closer listen.


Star Sound specializes in audio points and other equipment devices. Cones, toes, platforms, etc... They have it covered. Seen below is part of their new loudspeaker stand package. Tre' chic!


3dz Audio was playing their prototype Minutia floorstanding loudspeaker ($1,000). It uses a 0.75-inch tweeter, four 4-inch midrange drivers and an 8-inch side-mounted passive woofer. Quite interesting, so stay tuned.


In the Art Audio room was their Diavolo stereo amplifier ($6,600) seen here with the KR 842VHD output tube. This is an improved 32B as it draws more current and offers more high extension and tighter, deeper bass response. Also seen here is the Cabasse Baltic II and Thor II subwoofer modules ($20,000 for entire setup).


Cabasse also was showing their Bahia ($5,400) three-way feature a totally new cabinet and drivers. The tweeter is a horn-loaded 5th generation evolved over many years. The midrange and woofers have double magnet structures.
