Technics Grand Class System

Technics Grand Class System

Technics are back and they mean business. The relaunched SL1200 series of turntables, for which Technics has become an iconic brand for many, are grabbing all the headlines. Turntables were of course on display at the Sound & Vision Show this year but so were some of the new electronics and speakers from Technics. Dynamic Headroom paid a visit to the Technics room for a listen.

Esoteric High End Electronics

Now for a taste of true high end hi-fi. Esoteric is a sub-division of the Japanese company, TEAC. The goal of Esoteric is to deliver no compromise high-end hi-fi. This is a no-holds barred approach to music reproduction where the very best engineering and technology combine to provide the best possible sound.

Dynaudio Contour 20

Dynaudio Speakers Room

Dynaudio were present at Sound & Vision in Bristol with a dimly lit room showcasing their latest speakers designs. A large black & white mural of David Bowie adorned the front wall, flanked either side by by a pair of Dynaudio Contour 60. I find it interesting to see what other manufacturers a hi-fi brand uses to demo its own products. In this case, Dynaudio were using Naim electronics, a very good match indeed.

Ruark Audio

Ruark Audio Exhibition

Of all the stands at the Sound & Vision Show in Bristol, the cosiest and most homely was that of Ruark Audio. Ruark's products are all living room friendly by combining modern technology with chic retro looks and possibly had the highest WAF rating at the entire show. Dynamic Headroom took a look at what Ruark had to offer.
