We will be meeting at Allen Richards' place this Sunday. Allen has two unique systems in two different listening rooms. He is very pleased with the very new Tekton Double Impact loudspeakers ( 99 dB efficiency) driven by the Prima Luna Dialogue Premium Tube Integrated and the new Bluesound Node 2 streaming Tidal MQA.

This is a great opportunity to hear the current Magnepan 3.7i speakers with the well-regarded dedicated Mye Sound stands and a REL subwoofer no less. The McIntosh amp is conservatively rated at 400/w/ch at 8 ohms and the Magnepan 3.7i is a 4 ohm load, so plenty of power to drive these here! And the top of the line PS Audio digital front end.
This system works as both a 2 channel system with the Prima Luna tube integrated amp or as a Home Theater system with the Anthem electronics.

Tekton Design is a speaker company that sells direct with a 30-day return policy and has been getting a lot more recent attention. The Double Impact speaker features their latest patented technology, is 99 db efficient (not a horn!), and sells for $3000/pr. Here is a recent rave review:
Allen is very enthusiastic about these speakers and the Bluesound Node 2 streaming Tidal with MQA (at last!). This is a great opportunity to hear the very latest in exciting new audio technology products.
Be sure to bring along your favorite music on CD for System 1 and any disc format for System 2.
Look forward to seeing you all Sunday! It's not that far and you'll be glad you did.
