Hi Pete. While I'm unable to attend in person, I shall be there in spirit. Your gear/setup is very, very good for sure. Having installed one of your cables (Spirit 75” S/PDIF Cable digital interconnect) in my system, I can certainly vouch for the quality, neutrality, etc. of your cables. I have some upgrade ideas in mind for my system, and part of that upgrade schema includes additional cabling from Triode Wire Labs. Just looking to part with my Emotiva ERC-3 CD player first.  8) :D :thumb: aa :beer:

Some feedback from Stereophile's Ken Micallef... https://www.stereophile.com/content/borderpatrolvolti-audiotriode-wire-labs

BorderPatrol/Volti Audio/Triode Wire Labs



I have a theory about Greg Roberts, Gary Dews, and Pete Grzybowski, respective owners of Volti Audio, BorderPatrol Audio Electronics, and Triode Wire Labs. I knew guys like these three in high school, whip smart dudes who had the best music, stayed up late playing that music, but were somehow at school the next morning before anyone, pushing their grades to the max. Me? Slacker.
That's why the Three Volti Musketeers always play music loudly, pre and post show hours, checking the rig, always experimenting. I can attest to this phenomena, as I was up early and late, researching room coverage. Wait, those guys are still in there?!!

Roberts debuted his new Rival loudspeaker ($15,000–$21,500/pair), with revised crossover, revoiced cabinet, modified internal damping and bracing, and a retuned port.

The Big Three played fine music, including Dominique Fils Aimé, Van Morrison, Norah Jones, and Uncle Lucius. As always with Roberts, Dews, and "Triode Pete," the sound was transparent, open, rich, and deeply immersive.

Warren Potter, from Hamilton, Ontario, CA said "for a 2"-wide horn, these speakers are smooth, not horny. And even off-axis I'm getting great imaging."

Driving the new Rivals: BorderPatrol DAC SE-1 DAC (USB: $1525; S/PDIF-coax: $1525; USB+S/PDIF-coax: $1995), BorderPatrol 16Wpc SET 300B S20EXD power amplifier (from $19,995 excluding tubes; with Western Electric 300Bs: $1495/pair; price as shown: $23,485). Triode Wire Labs cabling included The Obsession power cables ($1499), Digital American power cables ($499), American Speaker Cables ($699/pair), Spirit II RCA interconnects ($399/pair), Freedom ethernet digital cables ($249), Passion USB cables ($329).


Thanks Ken!

Pete

Some additional feedback from Michael Lavorgna's Twittering Machines!... https://twitteringmachines.com/caf-highlights-2022-border-patrol-volti-audio-triode-wire-labs/

CAF 2022 Highlights: Border Patrol | Volti Audio | Triode Wire Labs



No trip to CAF is complete without a stop in the Border Patrol/Volti Audio/Triode Wire Labs room-orama.

During my visit, the Volti Audio Razz speakers (starts at $6500/pair), a three-way, hybrid horn/bass-reflex loudspeaker, were in play mated to the the Border Patrol S20EXD 16W/ch parallel single-ended 300B Power Amplifier (from $19,995 w/o tubes) and the company’s DAC SE-i (starts at $1525 see review) getting its bits from an Innous Zenith ZENith Mk3 (starts at $5399) and Phoenix USB reclocker ($3749) combo with cabling from Triode Wire Labs.



Rich, immediate, and just plain fun are the order of the day in the Border Patrol/Volti Audio/Triode Wire Labs room-orama.

Thanks Michael!

  Innuos is what I am using as well. Zenith mk3 and re-clocker. Great choice.
