    Thanks for all the pics Mike. Did you get any impression of those KT170s? (Hard to tell I know, at a show, unfamiliar this and that, etc.)

    Yes, I was impressed. Really a cool new tube and the sound in the room was very bold, neutral, dynamic with great bass.

    Really liked the AGD room (the speakers with the GaN Tube amp on them). Great sound.

    The newer Black Ice (formerly Jolida) electronics , especially their Integrated and mono block amps, are very impressive. They can be used with just about any output tubes (EL34, KT88, KT 120, 150, 170, even 6550’s).
    We have an integrated here ( F35, with KT 150’s) in one of our demo rooms, and it’s very good. Big, dynamic and bold sound with very tight and impactful bass. Definitely a lot of bang for the buck.

    Capital Audiofest Pictures and Comments

    If they’re quoting me, I better provide a proper write up this time too….

    Steal the sweet spot in this room if you can! Unlike some very over priced panel speakers now on the market, the GTT’s, made right here in the U.S., don’t exhibit any colorations or brightness. They give you all the speed and musicality you could want from a panel with no discernible downsides, including price! GTT has really upped their game with fit and finish too. Finished in a glossy gorgeous Tiger Ebony, they really made the panels attractive. The woofer integration in this setup was also seamless.

    Paired with the exceptional electronics from Pass Labs, despite being in a large room (estimate about 25 x 60), this system delivered the goods.

    MSRP for the four towers: $59k with the amps for the woofers and cables.
