RIVES AND TALON NEW REFERENCE PRODUCTS SOARING HIGH AT CES 2007 with VAC, WADIA, AND SHUNYATA
Coralville, IA -December 18th, 2006, Rives Audio and Talon Audio announce the debut of new reference products at CES 2007. Rives Audio will introduce the sub -PARC, a crossover, parametric, and digital switching amplifier (for bass section only), in a monoblock configuration. According to Rives Audio president, Richard Rives Bird: "Getting the bass right is the single biggest issue in a listening room. If you can control the bass with an active system such as this, and correct the bass with a parametric equalization, 90% of your room's woes are solved." This system is remarkable in that it can used to actively bi -amp a set of speakers or can be used with sub -woofers and even has the ability to automatically change settings both crossover and parametric when going from home theater to 2 channel listening. Estimated retail price is $4,500 per sub -PARC.
As if this weren't enough new reference series for the demonstration, the rest of the line up is equally impressive. In room 4606 at the Venetian: VAC will debut their 300.1 phi Reference Amplifier configured for monoblock operation. Wadia will demonstrate their new Series 9 reference system. Shunyata will be introducing their new V -Ray technology Hydra power conditioners. This is clearly a room not to miss!
