Sound and Personalities: The 2003 CES and T.H.E. SHOW
by Dave Glackin
George Kielczynski of de Havilland was showing off what in my opinion was the Best 845-Based Amplifier in the show, designed by Kara Chaffee. The Aries 845-G amp with 30 Wpc output was fed by the deHavilland UltraVerve preamp, and was feeding Alon Lotus Elite Signature loudspeakers of 90 dB efficiency. The playback was very involving, with a live quality and truth of timbre that were beguiling. This system had great transient response and jump, coupled with subtlety and smoothness. Kara has done a magnificent job with these amps. Pictured for your viewing pleasure is my attempt at an artful closeup of the top of an 845 in the deHavilland amp.
