Crystal Cable Absolute Arabesque speakers and Siltech SAGA electronics


The Siltech amplifier uses a technology beyond the ken of most mortals: a light generator in which a hermetically sealed ultra-powerful light is converted to the current needed to operate the amp without any interference from AC or magnetic fields.

Even in a hotel room, with the electronics between the speakers, the results on wide-ranging orchestral music were extremely impressive. The sound was immediate and effortless at all volume levels, with what seemed like unlimited dynamic range and a complete lack of distortion and time smear.
