We are pleased to welcome Vlad Bazelkov, founder and designer for Audio Mirror products. Vlad has been designing audio circuits for over 30 years leading to the Audio Mirror products.

The SE version includes Dueland output caps and other details that Vlad will discuss. The DAC plays PCM up to 384K and is DSD-compatible with a music player that converts DSD to PCM such as Foobar, Audirvana, and Amarra. The Reflection 45W mono blocks feature the Russian 6C33C output tubes, auto biasing with protection, and capable of 100w peaks and suitable for speakers 88dB efficiency and higher. Do review the Audio Mirror website for additional details of the company and the products.
Our thanks to John Brunner and Eric Krupp for bringing the Klipsch Cornwall speakers, which should prove a great match for these amps in our large listening area. Also, thanks to Chris Lovendahl for supplying the Jay's Audio CDT MKII transport which received a 6 Moons Blue Moon award. Gregg Straley of Reality Cables will be supplying interconnects and speaker wire for the system. Vlad will begin demoing the system from his computer files.
