Dealer Events in Chicago and Phoenix Saturday

Saturday June 10 at 3pm, Kyomi Audio (4454 W Berteau Avenue, Chicago, IL) is having a Jadis event. JC Calmettes from Jadis will be the gust of honor and Kyomi's George Vatchnadze will be working his magic with the new JA200 tube amplifier. Also on demonstration will be the Jadis JP200 preamp, Vivid G1 Spirit loudspeakers, Air Force 3 turntable, MBL Reference Transport, Chord DAVE DAC, and more. Please RSVP here or by calling (312) 513-2759.

Also on Saturday June 10, from 1–6pm, Esoteric Audio (111 W. Monroe Street, Suite 100, Phoenix, AZ 85003) is holding an event featuring the Moon by Simaudio 888 Mono power amplifiers, and a surprise from Grand Prix Audio. Simaudio refers to its Moon 888 monoblock ($118,000/pair) as "state of the art, taken to the extreme." Each amp weighs 300 lbs and delivers 888W into 8 ohms and 1776W into 4 ohms. Costa Koulisakis from Simaudio will be at the event presenting the entire line of Moon Evolution Reference electronics—including the 850P preamplifier, 810LP phono stage, 780D streaming DAC, and 820S power supply—with loudspeakers from Aerial and Rockport.

Coming straight from last weekend's LA Audio Show, the Grand Prix Audio Parabolica turntable will be appearing at Esoteric Audio's event. The goal was to deliver the core performance of the Monaco 2.0 at a more approachable price for the high-end turntable buyer, the Parabolica features carbon-fiber construction, the direct-drive assembly from the Monaco 1.5, the speed-control sensor and logic and record clamp system from the Monaco 2.0, and new detachable armboard for those wishing to use multiple tonearms.

Esoteric's go-to source for cables and power conditioning is Transparent Audio and they've worked with Transparent to come up with some very appealing offers for those who attend the event. "If you currently own older-generation Transparent products then this is the best upgrade opportunity that you'll ever see," they say. Please note that in order to take advantage of the Transparent Event Special you must attend the event on June 10!

This event is open to everyone who has an interest in high-quality music reproduction. As always Esoteric will be providing food and refreshments so please RSVP here.
