The new Focal Kanta No.2 Speakers are in!

The new Focal Kanta No. 2 speakers arrived on Friday last week, and we’ve been marveling in them ever since! Wow, right out of the box they were producing magic… and by Monday they we’re sounding absolutely sublime. The mating of their latest generation beryllium tweeter and Flax drivers is absolutely seamless. Detailed, musical, airy, and magical… it’s hard to completely describe the wonder that are these new Focal speakers. Combine that with their unimposing compact size and beautiful finish work, and you have a winner. You have to hear and see these to fully appreciate what Focal has pulled off with the Kanta No. 2. Our floor model has the taupe matte finish with the walnut case work. Be the first to hear the Focal Kanta No. 2 speakers in the Portland Oregon area!

Brand new Rega Planar 6 turntables are here!

The brand new and hotly anticipated Rega Planar 6 have arrived! Rega has slowly been working on revising their turntable lineup, first with the Planar 3 last year, then the Planar 2 and 1. The new Planar 6 is truly an all new product, not sharing any original components from the outgoing RP6 (except the hinges. why mess with what works?). There is so much that has gone into this new table, that we can’t fit all of the new information into a blog post. You can read more about it here. We’re in the process of putting this new table through the paces. A glowing 5 star review from What HiFi? here.
