The VPI Prime Signature turntable sits atop of their Production Line, and is priced at $6,000 without cartridge ($6,800 in Rosewood). Packing many of the features found in their Reference lineup of turntables, the VPI Prime Signature is a stunning piece of audio equipment both in sonics and aesthetics.
With both balanced and single-ended outputs, an almost limitless number of configurations to suit just about any cartridge needs, and an improved input stage for less noise, the Pass Labs XP-17 Phono Preamplifier packs a tremendous offering of features and performance in its $4,300 price tag.
The GoldenEar Technology Dolby Atmos Speaker System consists of their award winning Triton Reference, Triton One, SuperCenter XXL, and HTR 7000 speakers, and it may be the last system you’ll ever need to purchase!
Pass Labs doesn’t change up models unless they can make significant upgrades when compared to existing products, so when they introduced the new XP-17 Phono Preamplifier in 2017 as a replacement to their highly regarded XP-15, I knew that it would be a worthwhile trial.

Well, I survived my first audio show as one of the newest members of the SECRETS team, and if you followed my coverage, you could tell that I was thoroughly enjoying myself. Getting the opportunity to attend AXPONA for 3 days was a great experience for sure.
The Bowers & Wilkins P7 Wireless Headphones are very convenient in their portability: they have a 17-hour battery life. Their luxurious appointments bring a high sense of styling and fashion to their design. But does high fidelity audio reproduction get sacrificed in the interest...
