CRANAGE HALL NORTH WEST AUDIO SHOW 2017 - SOUND OF THE SHOW - FANTHORPES

BEDROOM 8
Fanthorpes - Innuos Zen Mk2 used as a streamer into Luxman electronics, including DAC and amps, all feeding PMC FACT12 speakers.


Despite a little boom induced by the room, this system was producing the best sounds of the show.  I wasn't expecting much from the Luxman electronics - they look like extremely high quality remakes of 80s Japanese amps with their silver finish and VU meters.  But looks can be deceiving and here we listened to music. Music which was very clear, crisp vocals and taught with impactful and tuneful bass lines.  I'm not normally a fan of the FACT speakers (despite being an owner of a different part of the PMC range), but it seems I've just not heard them with the right electronics before.  Nice work Fanthorpes (again).
