Audio Emotion will once again be in the Baird 1 Suite at the North West Audio Show.
This year their room will feature a number of UK premieres including:
Tannoy Kingdom Royal Mk II Loudspeakers
The Kingdom Royal is Tannoy flagship loudspeaker in terms of technical expertise and acoustic performance. The concept fuses Tannoy’s decades of experience in loudspeaker design with the very latest in materials an engineering technology to deliver a loudspeaker of unrivaled technical performance and musical communication. Its top-class build quality is complemented with a sumptuous finish that mixes textures and colours in a very contemporary evolution of Tannoy’s Prestige loudspeaker range.
The CS-100DAC is a reference grade digital source. It features two ESS ES9038Pro DAC chipset and can natively decode up to DSD512 and 32 Bit/ 768kHz. User can select from 7 PCM digital filters and 4 DSD digital filters to fine tune the sound signature for different music genre or even specific music files.
CS-100DAC comes with six digital inputs including an I2S port with HDMI connector. Cayin has also incorporated a genuine audiophile grade pre-amp into CS-100DAC, user can create a simple sound system by connecting the pre-amp output of CS-100DAC to active speakers or power amplifiers such as Cayin 9084DMK2 directly.
Cayin SC-6LS Mk2 Preamplifier
Cayin’s original SC-6LS was recognized as one of the best preamplifiers available on the market. The mk2 version refines this masterpiece with a new design and high-quality components. Cayin selects high-quality American Multicap coupling capacitors and Japanese TAKMAN carbon film resistors to best match the tonal aspects of the SC-6LS. Tube rectification is performed by two US RCA 22DE4 rectifier tubes. Using four 12AU7EH gives sound imaging that is clear and crisp. A generously sized power transformer and chokes stand for optimal dynamics and stability of the sound. In addition, the preamplifier includes a remote for easy control. As always, Cayin finishes with a high-quality aluminum front plate characterized by high oxidation resistance and low surface photosensitivity.
Acoustic Signature Merlin Turntable
The MERLIN turntable weighs in at 16 kg and marks the new entry to the Acoustic Signature series of mass turntables. With the MERLIN design, Audio Signature brings together one of the most sophisticated external drive and power supply systems, with a massive turntable design at a very reasonable price. It‘s all combined with the award-winning performance, elegance, convenience and comfort that have made our mass turntable series so successful all over the world but at a lower price point.
Aurender N10 Music Player
When computer audio first started to gain popularity, USB was the de facto standard for the digital audio signal transport. This was simply because computers have USB ports, not AES/EBU or other SPDIF ports. Unfortunately, USB can be a flawed protocol for digital audio transmission as it is prone to noise, jitter, and compatibility issues. Done properly, AES/EBU and SPDIF audio outputs represent a superior method of audio transmission with nearly universal compatibility, less jitter, and greater ease and flow to the overall musical presentation. N10 represents the state-of-the art of these protocols with its OCXO controlled SPDIF outputs – use them and discover a higher standard than USB.
MBL C15 Mono Amplifiers
Winner of The Absolute Sound “Editors Choice Awards” 5 Years in a row.
An amplifier is expected to distinguish all components of music with equal power and naturalness, to respond to every tone pitch and sound volume in a neutral and authentic fashion. In optimizing our amplifiers we do not confine ourselves to a small test signal or a single level or frequency range. Our tests encompass the entire range of musical performance, every contingency, every instrument and every voice. As a result, our LASA Mono Power amplifier boasts the same extremely low distortion factor throughout the whole audible frequency range and the whole range of performance. The music communicates without indication of its electronic or mechanical means of reproduction.
They look forward to seeing you at the show!
