Julie Mullins of TAS calls Voxativ her "most coveted" system from RMAF18 by Christopher Owens

The inquisitive Julie C. Mullins of The Absolute Sound Reports from Rocky Mountain Audio Fest on our new Kondo killer... proclaiming our system amongst the “most coveted” at the show #rmaf18 with the #nocompromise help of Synergistic Research…/rmaf-2018-electronics-15…/

Julie Mullins' (The Absolute Sound) impressions of the new T805 Integrated, Munich 2018 by Christopher Owens

"Coinciding with the Berlin-based company’s tenth anniversary, the new Voxativ T805 integrated amp ($29,880) delivers 30Wpc—three times the power of the prior T211 integrated, whose chassis is still employed here. Other improvements include a redesigned 12AX7 tube approach, a new (outboard) power supply, and a more powerful driver stage; the KT66 in the driver stage is a pentode but runs in triode mode. Unsurprisingly the T805 proved to be a perfect match for the high-efficiency Voxativ 9.87 speaker system, where music was reproduced with lively yet effortless dynamics, fast and exciting attacks, and plenty of bloom and detail. Digital source was a Weiss Medus DAC with Weiss MAN 301 server." - Julie Mullins, TAS, May 2018

Munich High End 2016: Loudspeakers $20k and Up by Christopher Owens

"Voxativ showed its €88k Ampeggio Due single-driver speaker, which I've very much liked at previous shows, and very much liked again here. Driven by Voxativ electronics and Totaldac digital (no analog), the Due sounded exceedingly lovely on guitar, voice, drumkit, and bass. This really is the most remarkable single-driver speaker I’ve heard when it comes to full frequency response (with a particularly rich power range) and lifelike transient speed, and, like the tiny Bonsai, came very close to being a BOS simply because of the triumphant coherence of its single-driver sound."

RMAF 2017: Voxativ single-minded in pursuit of great sound by Christopher Owens

"And, then there was that seamless presentation from the single drivers. The sound had considerable weight, impressive layering, excellent tempo and polished highs, although I had to focus hard in my mind to analyze the separate frequency bands, since the music was emerging as a whole. There, in a nutshell, was what I’ll call the Voxativ Effect." – John Stancavage, PTA
