Le Studio du Son: Java HiFi, Galion, Eversolo, Perlisten, XLO, Richard Gray’s Power Company

And now for extra from the Montreal present.

You need guts? You need music with explosive dynamics, easy sonic propulsion, and a bass beat that punches so low and onerous it makes you sit up at consideration? How about if with all that energy got here high-level transparency, dimensionality, tonal purity, vocal naturalness, and microdetail?

If that appears like your type of system, the demo I heard within the Le Studio du Son room might be your cup of tea. Or espresso. Or can of Red Bull.

Speaking of cuppas: On the highest shelf within the center (see picture above) was a Java HiFi built-in amplifier, though exactly which one I’m unsure. In this technique, it will need to have been performing preamp duties through its preamp output. Also within the system was a model I wasn’t conversant in however which, it seems, builds elements simply three miles from my residence: Galion. The Montreal present was the worldwide launch of the the 20Wpc push pull, class-A Galion TS A20 amplifier (in picture on proper), and it was additionally displaying, on passive show, the tubed TS120 SE built-in amp ($5295; far left).

The remainder of the system included an Eversolo DMP-A8 streaming preamp, which I’ve been tempted to purchase ever since I heard one for the primary time at 2023’s Toronto Audiofest, a pair of three-woofered, bass-reflex, THX Dominus–licensed Perlisten R7t audio system ($15,000/pair; see Kal Rubinson’s assessment of the same however dearer S7t.), whose low finish is alleged to go all the way down to 27Hz. Cabling was by XLO (varied worth), and energy conditioning was Richard Gray Power Company’s RGPC 600S line conditioner ($1525 US).
