Triode Wire Labs at AXPONA, April 13-15, 2018
« on: February 25, 2018, 01:28:30 PM »
Triode Wire Labs is pleased to be participating at AXPONA, April 13 – 15, 2018 at the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel & Convention Center, Schaumburg, IL.



We will be in TWO Rooms again, Room 486 with fellow AC Sponsor Vinnie Rossi, Acoustic Signature Turntables (Germany) and Harbeth Loudspeakers (U.K.).

We'll be in Room 688 with Volti Audio and BorderPatrol Tube Audio Electronics... Hopefully the new venue is as good as the old venue!

I'm looking forward to seeing many fellow Nervosians there!

Cheers,
Pete

Getting ready to head to AXPONA early tomorrow morning! We will be in 3 rooms this year, Room 486 with fellow AC Sponsor Vinnie Rossi and Harbeth Loudspeakers; Room 610 with Hugh from Angel City Audio; and in Room 688 with Volti Audio and BorderPatrol Tube Audio Electronics.

Triode Wire Labs will have a few new Surprises on hand, the brand-new "Spirit II" interconnects and the "Freedom" Ethernet cable!

I hope to see many of you there! Come thirsty!!!  :beer:

Cheers,
Pete

Hey Pete,
Have lots of fun and a successful event! When time allows.....whenever that might be.....can you mention what the difference is with version 2 vs the original version of the Spirit ic’s?

  Well unable to go after all. Bummer. I have the prtotype Spirit II and Fredoom Ethernet cables in for review. Will post my impressions shortly.
  Right off the bat the Spirit ii has more harmonic structure with an airey top end. The Freedom is well heads and heals over any other Ethernrt cable we tried so far.

Was just awarded this!!!

Volti Audio/BorderPatrol/Triode Wire: Best Room Under $50,000



"In the Volti Audio, BorderPatrol and Triode Wire Labs‘ room,I loved the new matching look of the Border Patrol S20 EXS integrated amplifier and the Volti Rivals speakers. Not only do they match in the wood finish, but they also sound incredible together. The source was the BorderPatrol DAC SE. According to Greg, the speakers will soon feature an optional outboard crossover The cables were from Triode Wire Labs.

I told Greg, “It sounds great, but I always feel like your speakers and the BorderPatrol amps are made for each other.” I was not surprised that this was one of the best sounding systems at AXPONA."

Well.... there you go again!!!   :thumb:

I remember having to pry Gayle away from you guys about 3 years ago at RMAF.  That is when you played that Buddy Guy "I'm Old" piece for me.  I think Tortuga (Morten) was in there, too.  I just wish I could afford Greg's speakers and Gary's amps.  sigh....  So much great gear from friends that care and so little time and money.

Unbelieveably musical with dynamics that will set your hair on fire!  Always awesome...............

I had not seen the Rival speakers before and went on the website to check them out. It appears the base price is $7,900.
