A Premium Streaming System
At the source, we have the Aurender A-10. A one-box solution for “modern” digital playback. It stores your ripped CD collection in its hard drive, streams from Tidal or Qubiz. What will likely impress you most about the A10 from an engineering standpoint is the Aurender Conductor app. If you’ve heard that this is an exceptionally well designed and user-friendly music management tool, you’ve heard right. It makes music selection easy and user friendly. You will need an iPad.
This source is so talented that it is deserving of a partnering amp as accomplished as the Luxman L-509X.
The L-509X is an amplifier that creeps up on the listener when the music starts. It has an understated presentation it takes a while to appreciate. Those looking for sonic fireworks will find them here only if they’re in the recording. This amplifier doesn’t spice things up for entertainment’s sake.
But this is an impressively detailed and insightful performer, one that’s capable of class-leading clarity. It recovers subtleties, even in the densest of recordings, and keeps them audible as arrangements become more demanding.
Dynamic swings are delivered with enthusiasm, the amplifier’s generous power output obvious in the punch, and solidity of the presentation. There’s no shortage of drama in the sound, yet we become aware of the L-509X’s impressive composure and the sense of control it imparts
Next, time to choose the speakers.
"The loudspeaker is the last and most important link in a chain of high-end audio components. The listening space itself aside -- most of us can’t just go out and buy a new room -- speakers have, by far, the greatest impact on the ultimate sound quality of a stereo system. My decades of audio experience have also told me that speakers are the hardest things for a manufacturer to get exactly right, and the easiest to mess up" read: The best luxury speaker brands Soundstage Ultra
It's a challenge to find speakers – usually of higher cost – that better these Magico A-1's in some respect, whether it’s outright resolution, openness, stereo imaging, or rhythmic precision, or simply as a satisfying an all-rounder.
And that’s exactly why you can trust every component in this high-end system to work together and live with you for decades.
