The talking heads of RMAF 2018: Vinnie Rossi

  • With LCD Soundsystem and Aphex Twin spinning on an Acoustic Signature turntable, Vinnie Rossi uses the 2018 Rocky Mountain Audio Fest (2018) to launch his new flagship L2 Signature pre-amplifier and monoblocks:

    1/ a Class A dual mono DHT pre-amplifier (US$15,000) that comes fitted with 300B tubes but remains compatible with X4, 2A3, 45, 101D, 205D, SV811 (and other 4-pin DHT families) and holds options for L2 DAC and L2 phono boards at US$3500 a piece.

    2/ Class A/B MOSFET monoblocks (US$15,000/pair) offering 75wpc into 8 Ohms, 140wpc into 4 Ohms (and 2 Ohm stable) via >100,000uF of low ESR power supply rail capacitance and a custom-wound 500VA power transformer, all wrapped in a half-inch thick aluminium chassis.

    Them’s the techy details.

    In our video interview, Rossi elaborates, also touching on music released on 4AD in the late 1980s as well as what visitors can and cannot expect to glean from his audio show exhibit:
