MBL Stereo System
When I was at the CA Boom show last week, one exhibit, tucked into a corner, attracted a bit of attention. Not just from sight but from the sound. It's hard to explain the difference between good stereo sound and great stereo sound. Like fine wine or a perfume made from carefully blended precious natural essences, the experience is more corporeal than intellectual. The richness of sound speaks to the body in such a way that it seems to almost bypass the brain. You just know. The Audio Salon's exhibit at CA Boom featured the MBL stereo system. These high-end audio components from Germany are not just gorgeous they provide deep resonant rounded sound. I'm not usually a major audiophile but as one of Trey's favorite sites, Sonic Flare, pointed out the other day, the MB 101E speakers are definitely craveworthy. The speakers alone run around $45,000 per pair but the sound is truly epic.
