Approximate system cost: €380,000.
Shown for the first time was Audia Flight’s new Remiga 2 loudspeaker, a first offering from sub-brand Alare. Powered by flagship Strumento-level electronics, the system was just pure visual and aural gorgeousness. This was an expertly balanced sound across a well-extended bandwidth, where vocal presence stood out in a realistically sized image. In a track with well-recorded percussive accents, I was taken aback by the system’s handling of transient speed and attack. Of note too was the very accurate tonality.
