Stereophile July 2021

Stereophile-July-2021

2nd Edition

SVS 3000 Micro subwoofer
My incommodious room favors small standmount and panel speakers that some audiophiles would say require a subwoofer.

Verity Audio Montsalvat DAC/PRE D/A processor
I was aware that Canadian company Verity Audio, founded in 1995, made loudspeakers, like the Sarastro II that Fred Kaplan reviewed in May 2009. But when Jason Victor Serinus and I attended the 2018 Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, we were both impressed by the sound of an all-Verity system.

Analog Corner #312: WallyTools & the WallyReference
Held every November in normal times, the annual Warsaw Audio Video Show is among the world's largest. I first attended a decade ago, in 2011, and was amazed by both the number of attendees--more than 10,000 people--and demographics that skewed young and included many families. That show was bigger and better-attended than any I've been to in America.

500 Issues!
In October 1962, the first issue of what was then called The Stereophile was published and edited by J. Gordon Holt out of Wallingford, Pennsylvania.

500 Issues And Counting: a Publishing Milestone
We're all involved with the world we live in. Friends from 20 years ago? Hey, nice to see ya, put on a little weight I see. Generally, you hang with your crew, although you might miss the bigger picture that way.

Dynaudio Confidence 30 loudspeaker
Over a lifetime of audio shows, I've consistently enjoyed Dynaudio speaker demonstrations. Each time, I've told Dynaudio North America's Michael Manousselis that I'd love to review the speaker on display that year.

1st Edition

Re-Tales #11: Business as Unusual
As the pandemic abates and reopening progresses, times are still uncertain. Industries worldwide continue to be obstructed. Parts and materials costs have risen sharply. Shipping rates, and shipping demand, have spiked. The recent Suez Canal blockage didn't help. All this has led to widespread supply-chain difficulties.

From the J. Gordon Holt Archives: Acoustic Research Stereo Remote Control
Now here's a cute and useful gadget. The Acoustic Research Stereo Remote Control allows you to perform the most often used system control functions/plus a few unusual ones, from anywhere in the listening room.

From the Corey Greenberg Archives: Sumiko Blue Point & Blue Point Special phono cartridges
In these waning days of Analog's Last Stand, it might seem absurd to review midpriced phono cartridges when this space could be given instead to the gear Stereophile usually covers--like $3000 OTL tube amps built by guys like that "Rainbow Man" lone nut who used to dance in the stands at Super Bowls before he took hostages in a hotel room with a .45 screaming, "MIT CAPACITORS!!! MIT CAPACITORS!!!"

Vincent SV-737 integrated amplifier
Founded in 1995 by Uwe Bartel, Vincent Audio is owned by Sintron Distribution GmbH. Vincent launched its LS-1 preamplifier and D-150 hybrid stereo power amplifier the year the company was founded.

Pat Metheny: From His Place
When Pat Metheny was growing up in the small Missouri town of Lee's Summit, his family's home stood within can't-even-hear-yourself-shouting distance of the Missouri Pacific railroad. trains, tornadoes, freezing winters, hot summers, small-town isolation--all fed an imagination that (combined with plenty of practice) fed a legendary music career.

Rotel Michi M8 monoblock power amplifier
In an April 2020 press release, the McIntosh Group announced that its subsidiary brand Sumiko, which was cofounded by the late Dave Fletcher and distributes Sonus Faber and Pro-Ject among other high-performance brands, had secured distribution rights for Rotel Electronics in the US and Latin America.
