Now was it any good? How about build quality? How about audio reproduction quality? Do they post traceable lab measurements as well?
Costs tells us nothing other than, well the cost they think it's worth on the market.
Hard to compare something when one doesn't have it in their own system and its a hotel room demo, isn't it!
The system demod (included speakers, cd player) was nice, but how good it sounded also depended on where one
sat or stood, pretty typical. For tube luvers, at a 4K price point, for DAC with tube preamp/stereo amp, it certainly is an interesting product at a price point some tube luvers will like!
February 10, 2015: More than two years ago, CCI visited Arizona Audio-Video Club at the invitation of our Los Angeles and Phoenix dealer for Opera and Unison, Bill Coomes of The Sweet Spot. Bill is officially the first US dealer for the Axis VoiceBox S loudspeaker, so Colleen and I are returning to demonstrate his new line of Australian loudspeakers for the AZAV members. We are planning to feature the Axis VoiceBox, of course, as well as a Unison Research Triode 25 integrated amplifier/DAC and a Unison Research Unico CDE CD player. All cabling and power management will be provided by Furutech. We also plan on bringing our prototype of the Unison Research SH headphone amplifier along with the Furutech H128 headphones. The monthly meeting of the Arizona Audio-Video Club will be held at the Marriott Airport Hotel on Wednesday, February 25th at 7pm. The address of the hotel is 1101 N. 44th Street, Phoenix."
Glimmie, please understand I happened to mention this not to give a glowing review, but simply as my theta dealer, VGI, quite alive in this thread, knows Colleen Cardas very well from her years managing Cardas Cable. They talked, we listened, they had some literature.
