Launched earlier in the year, NOLA’s Metro Grand Reference Gold is designed to bring the performance of the Concert Grand and Grand Reference Gold speakers into a loudspeaker size that is suitable for smaller rooms. That said, the $33,000 loudspeakers were making a great sound through NOLA’s usual system choice of Audio Research electronics and Nordost Odin cables.
Vandersteen 7s have consistently sounded great at recent shows; this demonstration in the Audio Research Corporation/Vandersteen room was no exception.
Von Gaylord loudspeakers have perhaps not found their way to the UK just yet, but that may change in the not too distant future. In the meantime, you can come to RMAF to hear the sweet-sounding 2-way Von Gaylord VG-8 stand-mount monitors.
