Audio Research: New Ref 75, SP20 and VSi60 back in

Audio Research is one of the most highly regarded American audio companies still making their gear here in the US. And if you love tube gear, they make some of the best. Always striving to find the best of both tube and solid state worlds, the ARC ‘sound’ strikes a nice level of neutrality with much of the best of both worlds. We now have the Audio Research Reference 75 amplifier on our floor. While it’s bigger stereo brother Ref150 has gotten much of the attention (as has the Ref250 mono blocks), this latest 75 watt amp is garnering a lot of recent attention for being every bit as good as it’s more powerful siblings, owing much to it’s more direct signal path. We’ve got several great speakers to hear this on (Focal Scala V2s, ProAc D30Rs, Fact8s, etc.). For those with efficient speakers, this is a sweet amp to make them come to life. Our Audio Research SP20 Stereo Preamplifier is also now on our floor and will soon be ready to drive this great new amp. The SP20 has gotten notice for the great built in phono stage, as well as the inclusion of a built in headphone jack! A return to the classic days of Audio Research! We also now have a Audio Research VSi60 Integrated Amplifier back on the floor (the one gathering a lot of attention lately. read here.) Read some of the reviews for the Ref75 here, here, here, and here. And an early review of the SP20 here.


Focal Utopia III Scala V2 Speakers in Portland!

Stereotypes Audio of Portland, Oregon is pleased to announce the arrival of the Focal Utopia III line with the addition of the Scala V2 floorstand speakers! We’ve added these to the Diablo’s we already have on our showroom floor. We’re in the process of breaking in these beautiful giants, and we can’t wait to have you give them a listen! The three-way floor standing loudspeaker Scala V2 is an improvement over the previous well received Scala’s, and are the benefactor of ‘trickle down’ from Focal’s top of the line Grande Utopia and Stella Utopia speakers. The new bass unit provides more power and grip, while retaining the lush mid-range, creating a focused and gorgeous soundstage. The Scala’s feature their Beryllium tweeter, Power Flower midrange W driver , 11″ W woofer, and OPC+ filtering with adjustable bass and treble levels. Made entirely in France with all Focal JM Lab tech and build from the ground up, the beauties weigh 187lb each and stand 49″ tall, and are highly efficient at 92dB, capable of some truly amazing SPLs, while retaining a lush natural musical performance. Read the reviews herehere and here (pdf). Come in soon to give these amazing reference level speakers a listen!


Something cool just showed up this week. Stay tuned!

Stay tuned for more info about what’s in these boxes! ;)


We’re now carrying the PSB 100 line of Subwoofers at Stereotypes!

The only place in Portland to find PSB, is proud to carry the new 100 line of Subwoofers from PSB. They make a great match to the Alpha series, as well as many of our other PSB speakers. Tiny in size, but not in sound, it’s a great choice for the space and budget conscience. Read an early review here.
