Best Sound

In my opinion was the Lamm room shown above. The speakers were the Kharma Exquisite Midi Grand, which cost $225,000/pr, driven by the Lamm ML3 Signature amplifiers costing $139,490/pr. The analog "front end" was an enormous vintage EMT 927 turntable valued at $50,000 fitted with an SME 3012 (out of production). The cartridge was the ZYX UNIverse Premium costing $14,495, which fed Lamm's three chassis LP 1 Signature phono preamp which sells for $35,690. Cabling was by Kubala-Sosna— $130K's worth.

The total system cost including EMM Labs digital gear was $733,880. That sum doesn't guarantee great sound—I've heard super expensive systems that sounded terrible—but in this case it was exceptionally fine. The Magda Tagliaferro solo piano record reported on elsewhere in CES coverage sounded as if the piano was in the room.
