    Nice write up Ked, the show was a blast from start to finish with some really nice sounds being made at all price points

    Some of the standouts for me were the Autotech horns, the Lampizator room, the Kondo room and the Thomas Meyer room, it was also nice to bump into you and have a chat

    Did you get to the Lampi room on the Sunday, he had changed the Dac to the new Der Siebener Dac, that kicked some serious sound from those speakers
    Amplifier - Audio Note Empress Silver mono blocks, Hattor passive pre
    Digital - Mac Mini, Bel Canto DAC 2.5

    TAD are the best of the cone speakers in some ways, but the ref series outclasses the evo series due to the be midrange cone. Also, the compact evos are nearly the same price as the evo towers and take up about the same space, I havea hard time believing anyone would choose the compact version. I also would not pair them with a tube amps, I've heard TAD speakers many times with a lot of amps and they have only sounded ok with any tube amps I've experienced and far better with TAD amps vs any others I've heard.
