T.H.E. Show Newport Beach 2016: Chris Martens' Best in Show


Paul and Judy Speltz displayed their fascinating ANTICABLES, which are based on the premise that cables should include only those elements necessary for good sound—and absolutely nothing more (meaning ANTICABLES forego thick, cumbersome cable jackets, or cable plugs designed more for good looks than for great sound). These cables take the “less is more” approach to new heights.

A universal-fit earphone that has rightly garnered a lot of favourable reactions of late is 1More’s prosaically named Triple Driver In-Ear Headphones.  What’s the buzz? In simple terms, the 1More Triple Driver In-Ear Headphone offers the sound quality and internal driver technologies typically associated with $300 to $400 earphones, yet sells for an astonishing $99.

Finally, as part of the continuing roll-out of the revitalised Peachtree Audio 2.0, the firm demonstrated its upcoming Nova 300 integrated amplifier capably driving a set of Wilson Sabrina loudspeakers. The ultra quiet Nova 300 promises a signal/noise ratio of 107dB, delivers a stonking 300 Wpc, and is the first amplifier on the market to use the newest generation of ICEpower Class D amplification modules. The Nova 300 is expected to sell for $2300.
