    Talis S 300 in TAS

    The T+A Talis S 300 are both on the cover and reviewed in the new issue of The Absolute Sound.

    Excellent review where he stated that he believes these may be the best sounding speakers under $20k that he has ever heard (and that is the category he does for TAS)! He briefly compares them against Wilson and Magico and states that both these wonderful companies might be bested, also in the cabinets.

    He loved everything from the quality crates/boxes used to the cabinet design to the performance. In the article he also mentions several other pieces of T+A that he has heard and that have been reviewed in TAS. He also talks about the DAC 8 DSD that one of the other reviewers got him to buy, and happy that he did!

    Nice to see this wonderful company getting some recognition in the United States. I feel this is long over due!

    The Talis S 300 sound like a speaker I might choose over the KEF Reference 3 in this range. Unfortunately neither are in the range I would be able to swing at this point .

    I noticed they are listing a lot of gear lately including all of the T+A line. I doubt they stock it all ...

    They are right around the corner from me. They switched from Accuphase to T+A. Guess they can only support 1 Authentic High End Amp brand at a time You would pass right by the place if you weren't looking for it because the sign is about as large as a small street sign plastered to the side of the building. It's in a shopping mall that runs parallel to a Ancient Train station in New Hope, PA which is an artist colony of sorts. There is a very large sign at the entrance of the shopping mall which lists the stores/places to eat etc...that store isn't even listed. I bet the foot traffic is just above Zero as the town its in is basically only "alive" 8 days a month on the weekends. They should run the business out of a house and save the rent money which I am sure is quite a bit.
    Amps: D'agostino M400 Mono's, ARC REF 160M, Audio Note Jinro, First Watt SIT-3 Mono's, Pass XA25, Valvet E2 SE, ARC 150M.

    Pre-Amps: ARC REF 10, Ayre KXR Twenty, Luxman 900U, ARC MP-1 Multi-Channel, Conrad Johnson Met-1 Multi-Channel

    Disc Spinners: Luxman D-08U, Esoteric K-01X 30th Anniversary/Black, Ayre DX5, Marantz SA-10

    Speakers: Joseph Audio Pearl 3, Klipsch Forte III, Monitor Audio Gold 200
