Pacific Audio Show – August 2022

Watch until the end for a really impressive power product (fyi it’s not the Stromtank)


Audio-Ultra Seduces with Smooth-Talking Taiko, MSB, Constellation, Magico, and Stromtank Gear

Audio Ultra's setup at the Pacific Audio Show 2022What a great way to start a show. I don’t know what impelled me to choose my CD of Patricia Barber’s Higher, but the combination of Constellation’s smooth-talking Pictor line stage with DC blocker ($24,500) and DC filter ($8000) with the company’s Centaur II 500 amplifier ($80,000) and Magico S5 MkII loudspeakers ($45,500/pair) was perfect for Barber’s cool, no-nonsense presentation. This was one smooth, toned-down, ultra-clean system that all but guaranteed non-fatiguing listening for hours and hours upon end.



Audio-Ultra’s new Dohmann Helix 2 Base turntable with even newer Kuzma Safir 9″ Arm with Silver Kondo wire

Ed DiVitto at Pacific Audio Show 2022Ed DeVito, whose by appointment Audio-Ultra showroom is located a short ride from SEATAC airport, had planned to exhibit his Dohmann Helix 2 Base turntable ($33,000) with optional Carbon Fibre Top ($2700) and composite armboard ($2600). The table was equipped with the even newer Kuzma Safir 9″ Arm with Silver Kondo wire XLR ($22,000) and Ortofon Verismo cartridge ($6999). But when he finished setting it up to perfection in his showroom, it sounded so right that he decided to leave it where it was.
