I thought I’d taken a step back in time in this room. Everything was made of (well, finished in) wood. Beautiful, finely polished wood adorned the faces of most of the components.

The main event of this room was the lovely turntable sporting a $7,500 Hyperion phono cartridge. It features an ultra-low effective moving mass, patent-pending Cactus Needle Cantilever which takes advantage of the natural fibers.

The speakers were Firefly Monarch bookshelf speakers by Peter Ledermann.

The sound was highly energetic with a nice forward image that allowed me to mentally place instruments around the room.
