Speakers: KEF LS50 Wireless II

Now offered as a powered speaker, they provide the same captivating sound with the convenience of modern wireless technologies and built-in amplification. Stream wirelessly using Airplay, Bluetooth, or Spotify Connect.
Turntable: Clearaudio Concept
Why we chose it: The Clearaudio Concept is an elegantly styled turntable featuring a level of technology usually only found in turntables 5x the price. Made in Germany, every aspect of this turntable is crafted to exacting specification and all parameters, even the tracking and anti-skating force, are adjusted in the factory for optimal out-of-the-box performance.
Phono Pre-amp: Pro-Ject Tube Box S2
Why we chose it: The Pro-Ject’s Tube Box S2 packs the added warmth and depth of tube amplification in a small and efficient package.
