    Soulution 711 + 725 w/phono arrive at Suncoast Audio

    Very excited to have Soulution back in the store in a big way!

    Soulution, Block and Boulder. Three of the very best and only at Suncoast Audio.

    Boulder - organic, tube like, but with explosive dynamics.

    Soulution - incredible bass, detailed, amazing definition, speed and dynamics.

    Block - a bit of both with some class A goodness and great bass. A STEAL at $60k/pair for the monos.

    Three great flavors to choose from.

    Congrats on carrying the line again.

    But, is there a new US distributor?

    I remember years back reading about the US distribution as well as concerns about the reliability of the product (Soulution)

    Are these two things no longer a concern?

    Thanks. Same US Distributor. Reliability has definitely been a lot better from what I’ve heard.

    Mike you definitely have the top tier covered in your line card. No love for any mid and lower tier in your market?

    What’s your percentage split from front room to back room sales? That’s if you don’t mind me asking

    Re: Soulution 711 + 725 w/phono arrive at Suncoast Audio

    Congrats! I've yet to hear Soulution. But one feature I like is that you can do their dac direct into their dual mono power amp. I'm guessing (?) that they are designed that way and that a lack of a preamp (passive or not) is not a liability. (Whereas there seem to be mixed reviews with dCS direct into power amps; some really prefer a preamp.)

    A third-party streamer front end would be needed for the dac? Is there a natural pairing?

    I think their DAC technology is excellent. It would be nice if it had a built in Roon network card. It has a network interface, but not sure which app you use? Otherwise, yes, you need an Aurender/network transport.

    Their phonostage is also a preamp. But we have the preamp with the phonostage. Soulution 711 + 725 w/phono arrive at Suncoast AudioSoulution 711 + 725 w/phono arrive at Suncoast AudioSoulution 711 + 725 w/phono arrive at Suncoast Audio

    Well, I did stop by Mike’s for a listen. The Soulution gear was driving a pair of Vivid Giya S1 Spirits. Was only able to listen for about 30 minutes.

    I found the pairing with the Soulution to be a bit more fluid and musical than the Boulder. The Boulder offers a bit more detail and slam. However, this perspective is from memory as I’ve heard these speakers in this room many times.

    What can I say, both are world class electronics. Personal taste would be the deciding factor on which to get.

    Congrats! Love my 560 w/Leedh processing direct to amps. I want a 711 or 701 but reliability issues have scared me away. The rumor is their switching PS too small and runs too hot so fails.
