Srajan at 6moons has a listen to Amphion Argon 7LS and likes what he hears. Read the review here.
We had a great time at Cranage Hall last weekend for the North West Audio Show. The usual free entry combined with wonderful weather and a superb venue made it once again a success. The show is growing year by year and is now well worth a visit. The main system we had was sounding fabulous, Amphion Krypton driven by CAAS Audio pre/power, Audiomica cables, MusicWorks mains, furniture, and isolation. Source was a Nadac kindly loaned to us by Ultimate Stream. The system had terrific scale and power yet also retained subtlety and finesse, Gregory Porter to Nine Inch Nails all sounded superb.
We also had a more modest system, featuring the new versions of Amphion Argon 1 and Argon 0. Driven by Hegel Röst and using Audiomica cables, MusicWorks mains and isolation products, it delivered music in a way that belied its apparent simplicity.
Along with all the Argon range from Amphion we had M2tech RockStar series, and the piccolo+ server from Aria on display. It was a good 2 days and we had many, many positive comments. Thanks to those who visited and I hope you found it rewarding.
The North West Audio Show is one of our favourites, it is in a characterful hotel, free to enter, and much more relaxed than the “big” shows and this year Auden Distribution are showcasing Amphion loudspeakers and CAAS Audio. The main system will be a pair of Amphion Krypton3 driven by the CAAS e-pre, and 2 e-mono pre-power combination and as we are taking up the whole of the Bell Suite, we have plenty of space to let the system really sing.
CAAS Audio was recently reviewed in Hifi+ where Jason Kennedy wrote “The CAAS trio is one of the most musically engaging and resolving amplification systems around”, we wouldn’t disagree.
The Amphion Kryptons are the result of many years continued evolution and are the Amphion reference for home audio. Trickle down from this model has seen the Argon range garner numerous excellent reviews in the press including Argon 7LS on Hifi Pig and Argon 1 in HifiChoice.
The system will use MusicWorks furniture, isolation and power products, and Audiomica labs interconnects and loudspeaker cables. Source will be a Merging Nadac. All together, an extremely capable and musical system that we are looking forward to playing.
There will also be a more lifestyle system to demonstrate the newly updated Argon 0 and Argon 1 models, it is surprising how good a more modest system can be and as with the bigger system, this is a very enjoyable way to listen to your music.
On display we will also have the M2Tech range including RockStar series, and the Aria Piccolo+ from DigiBit, both the subjects of recent great press reviews.
Well worth a visit, hopefully we’ll see you over the weekend!
