    Here are some photos from the Borresen / Ansuz / Aavik Acoustics room at the Florida Audio Expo 2020.

    Lars Kristensen, CEO of the above high end audio brands together with Emil Kristensen have flown in from Denmark especially for the show.

    Gated HiFi Distribution is represented by Dana Mueller and Amy Wollack.

    On demonstration is a complete Ansuz foundation. The cable loom is Ansuz Mainz D2 apart from the cable to the wall socket which is Mainz DTC SUPREME.

    Latest products from Ansuz including the PowerSwitch D-TC and Mainz 8 DTC Supreme distributor are used and for the first time in Florida the New Ansuz resonator. Darkz tweaks are also applied to the WiFi router.

    Source is a Naim CDP used as a transport and separate Naim Uniti streamer, connected to the latest Aavik U-380 integrated amplifier and DAC. The speakers are Borresen Model 01ís.

    The lads from Borresen Acoustics are liking the Embassy Suite rooms, which were originally built as condominiums and offer reasonable acoustic isolation. Well done show organizers!








    Photo Above: New Ansuz PowerSwitch with some Ansuz resonance control tweaks to the Linksys WiFi


    Photo Above: The Borresen Acoustics Model 01 loudspeakers. They are great visually to look at but sonically disappear as all great speakers do.


    Photo Above: Looks like a Quadraspire rack is being used. Source electronics are from Naim Audio


    Photo Above: New Ansuz Resonator sit atop of components.


    Photo Above: Show attendance looks to be excellent with strong interest in the room from very early on the first day of the show.
    Borresen Acoustics Loudspeakers, Borresen Model 01 Compact monitor loudspeakers with Ansuz Darkz T2s Supreme resonance control, Audio Video Manufaktur GmbH (AVM) Inspiration amplifier & streamer, Innuos Zen MKII music server, Ansuz Acoustics cables & accessories. Please visit my system thread hosted on Audioshark for more details. Disclosure: The author is materially connected to Ansuz, Aavik & Borresen Acoustics via friendship with an owner.

    Great pics and good luck with the event. That dog is quite "lucky." Hope the dogs have earplugs; their ears hear quite better than ours!
