All three lines of KR Audio's tube amps - KR VA880 (KT-88), KR VA320 (300B) and Kronzilla SX (the mighty T-1610), the KR P130 preamp as well as Valvet's new 10 watt single-ended-solid-state E1r mono blocks.

    In room 1014 you can listen to the Kronzilla SXi with Von Schweikert VR-44 speakers and in room 1022 Dr. Eunice Kron is on site showcasing the KR VA340 (300B integrated amp) with Antelope Audio DACs.

    In Room 418 we also will be presenting the new HighEnd Novum PMR Premium No.2 acoustic resonator from Germany and audio furniture plus vibration control by Gregitek from Italy.

    Synergistic Research
    Tranquility Base

    Synergistic's Tranquility Bases are a big hit and already receive worldwide recognition.




    Steven Plaskin (Audio Stream): "...I then turned on the active portion of the Tranquility Base by inserting the Silver Enigma tuning Bullet. All hell broke loose!! The soundstage became holographic in size, definition and focus were enhanced, and bass definition further improved. The noise floor dropped and background silence was simply stunning."

    Customer feedback: "...in no shape or form does any other 'single' upgrade compare. This device imo is THE best 'platform' for SR's EM cell technology. A true game changer..."

    Synergistic Research
    Quantum Fuse

    The Quantum Fuse is another best seller from the house of Synergistic Research.

    Norm Luttbeg of StereoTimes wrote: "...I am a sucker for the thrill of hearing a sound that suggests I am at the recording venue. These fuses allow my equipment to yield such a holographic image. The sound is open, effortless, defined, extended, detailed, and most importantly realistic... Highly recommended."
