Speakers: Wilson Alexandria XLFs
Our speakers are at the very heart of what we do in the room. To properly honor our many wonderful recordings, we set out to find speakers that are able to reproduce a live orchestra as much as possible. After some initial flirting with omnidirectional and other less conventional speaker systems, the durability and impressive output of the Alexandria XLFs proved themselves to be the right choice for our purposes.
Each speaker has six drivers: a 15in subwoofer, a 13in subwoofer, two 7in midrange drivers, a 1in tweeter, and a 1in super tweeter. Each speaker draws 1300 watts of power from a PBN amplifier. Weighing in at an impressive 655lbs a piece, and standing an over 70in tall; the enclosure provides sheilding from errant electrical noise and misplaced vibrations, ensuring the drivers reproduce the clearest sound possible. In less technical terms, the Alexandria XLFs are able to move the same amount of air as an entire live orchestra. Set up as in a stereo configuration combined with the architecture of the room itself, the XLFs breath the same energy, dynamic range and emotional depth that the recordings had last known when the music first met the microphone.

Turntable: PBN GrooveMaster Vintage Direct DP7
The PBN GrooveMaster Vintage Direct Drive DP7 is our newest addition, and stands out in a class all its own in both style and sound. Perhaps the most obvious feature of the Groovemaster DP7 are the two tonearms: one with a stereo cartridge and the other with a mono cartridge. The copper platter prevents electrical noise from the motor and other internal electrical components, creating a prestine platform for records.
