One or other of TAD’s loudspeakers and Accuphase’s electronics seemed to have ended up in at least half the rooms that we saw, including some very impressive combinations.
In G505, as well as an amazing display of the Ortofon Cartridge range, there was a pair of TAD’s Compact Reference One loudspeakers driven by Accuphase M-6200 power amplifiers, with sources from Accuphase and Solid Royal. For stand-mount loudspeakers in a large room, the sound quality was amazing. Dave Brubeck’s Take Five felt like the musicians were really in the room, with great imaging and detail but no fatigue.
We’ll be back tomorrow as this is a clear candidate for sound of the show!
