Audio Show gave an opportunity to present for the first time
the new cable series – BlueS. The main presentation took
place in Bristol hotel, in the room of Krakow firm ANCIENT
AUDIO. The reference system consisted of: CD Lektor Grand,
amplifiers Silver Grand Mono and speakers Holography.
Everything connected by the best Velum cables – interconnect,
speaker cable and power cables.
Demiurge and firm’s constructor Mr Waszczyszyn
The best sound at Audio Show 2005, as many visitors said.
Wiring system at first glance.
The presentation in SOBIESKI hotel had closed-circle
atmosphere, conducive to contacts between visitors and firms’
representatives. It was assumed to show the abilities of
budget system on wiring with reference cables. There were
many options of choosing the elements of the system, but
finally it was decided to use quite anonymous devices. Thus,
the system consisted of: CD Krell cd300, preamplifier and
terminal 75 W, partly home-made, partly modified –
transistor constructions /not tube, as many thought/.
And the experimental monitors of high resolution based on
speakers Scan-speak and Dynaudio. Acoustic layout (configuration)
– transmission line with a hole on the top. Choosing of
those speakers cancelled the problems of the acoustic of the
room; they played without any adaptation of space. We tell
those data, because many visitors were interested in them
and did not believe that they play without any additional
sub-woofers. In this way we showed the abilities of simple
system while wired properly.
Reference wiring was ca 40% of system’s value. There are few
who decide for such a solution, but it is not nonsensical
and it was worth to try and show that unusual setting.
The first listeners – at the night before the official
opening of the show.
The sound of this system was so ripe and detailed that we
could take a liberty to compare the violin playing ‘live’
with the same fragment reproduced from CD. And also
experimenting, by adding to the composition for percussion
instruments our own sounds of bells, rattles and triangle.
As a matter of fact, while closing eyes, it was difficult to
determine which sounds come from recording and which are
‘living’ ones. Sinking the sounds into another ones was
surprising – even for us. The author of those presentations
was the violinist and concertmaster of the Great Theatre in
Warsaw – Adam Kublik. Adam is also an audiophile, so he
could run the presentation excellently from the point of
musician’s view as well as show, what is important to make
the reproduction of the recording true!
For us, the exhibitors, Sunday was especially nice day,
because it was much more quiet than Saturday.
Quite different visitors came there, people who wanted to
listen to the music. There were also Poles acting in this
branch from Malmo, Paris and Chicago.
The renowned journalist Wojciech Pacu³a paid us a short
Meeting many interesting people, coming into contacts were
quite a feast for exhibitors. One could, just for a moment,
rise over the technique.
Mr. Velum – Mariusz Olszewski – thanks all nice visitors in
our room.<br>See you, hear you!
Velum power cables were used also by other exhibitors and those
presentations were included among the most interesting ones
at Audio Show 2005.
