    That was cool, Chris.

     

    It looks you will be introduced to the "B&W Nautilus Sauna", since you mention they will be driven by several class A amps...

    I had that experience before, it was certainly too hot to stay inside the room for a long time...

    Just heard a little preview of the Nautilus / Classé system. Really cool! The air conditioning is definitely on :~)

    You were just at AA in Raleigh?!?! Dang, I could have gone. I need to pay attention to the audio advice emails. I think they get sent straight to my spam folder...

    20th Anniversary of the Nautilus, not 40. Also, they were quad amplified I believe. Enjoyed your Q&A session at Audio Advice and looking forward to watching more of your CA TV Episodes.

    Ah yes, the marketing materials mistakenly said 40th anniversary. I thought that seemed a bit off when I read it. Someone at Audio Advice tonight said it must be 20 years for each speaker :~)

     

    I'll check my photos for the specifics on the amplification. I can't wait to hear them again tomorrow night in Charlotte, NC.

    Not that I would purchase any of the offered mp3's but many of the Cowboy Junkies recordings are not legally available to download from their website for those of us in the United States.

    I assume the Nautilus are powered by Classe amplifiers rather than class a?

     

    It was commented they are usually quad amplified though iirc you can skimp and use only 3 channels per speaker. Also of course they use an active crossover (prior to the amplifiers).

    hello

    Many Anniversary are always good...But sometimes remember / one light on the cake, or 20 or maybe 95 at the end, "you must blows (Miles Davis)"

    the best for all

    Any plan on reviewing the Devialet 170 or 240? As a built in solution with DAC and Pre I would be very interested in your opinion of the device...it's been reviewed right and left but I think it's the appropriate candidate for Computer Audiophile....

    I'd like to get a Devialet unit in here for review. I just haven't made the phone call yet.

    Any movement on that Ayre QB-9 DSD review yet?

    It was supposed to be done awhile ago. Other things just kept getting in the way. it's a great DAC, one of my favorites. Full review coming after CES.
