Avalon is a Boulder Colorado based speaker company that simply blew me away with the INDRA at just under $20,000 for the pair. No less than 4 drivers including a 1â€ ceramic neodymium tweeter, a 3.5â€ midrange, and 2-7â€ Kevlar composite cone woofers.
Definitive Technology introduced a smaller version of the excellent Mythos ST with the STS model at $1,499 each available later this spring. The sleek tower includes a 300 watt digital amplifier for the SupercubeÂ® subwoofers - two â€œRacetrackâ€ radiators.
Also new for Definitive Technology are two models of the surround bar, the Mythos Solo Surround Array (SSA). Available in 2 sizes, the SSA-42 at $899 for flat screen panels up to 46â€ and the SSA-50 at $1,099 for 50â€ displays. A quick demo convinced me this isnâ€™t such a bad way to go as an alternate to complete surround packages.
It was no mystery that the Lamm Industries room would sound amazing, it didnâ€™t disappoint. The room included the new ML3 Signature single-ended triode monoblocks in pure class A operation. Smooth, extended and richly detailed coming from a mere 32 watts, Lamm partnered the amplifiers with Wilson Audio Maxx2 speakers. Now brace yourself, the pair of ML3â€™s are $139,290.00!
