Zesto and TAD

I had a really fun time in the Zesto Audio room, lured in by hearing president George Counnas spin Paul Simon’s masterpiece Graceland on vinyl. Turns out, it was coming out of some vaunted TAD loudspeakers being driven by Zesto Audio’s elegant Andros PS1 phono stage and Leto preamplifier.
