MASS FIDELITY CORE

As an engineer explained to us at the February 2016 Sound & Vision Show, Bristol UK, people are used to getting music from their phone and don’t relate to multi-box hi-fi systems with wires all over the place. Now, it has to be a one box system – and that includes the loudspeakers. 

   But how do you get get big-stage stereo from a single source? Mass Fidelity have a unique solution that works as if by magic we found: waveform synthesis. Instead of bouncing sound around everywhere – the old way of doing it – their Core uses digital signal processing to construct a large but seemingly focussed sound stage with tangible depth to it.

ENTOTEM PLATO

Here's a digital streamer that plays LP! Well, OK – Entotem's Plato records LP onto its hard drive then plays it, so you need a turntable, with MM or MC cartridge. Then it not only stores and  plays LP, it also identifies it automatically – from internet lookup at Gracenote – retrieving and displaying cover artwork! 

Add in hi-res digital playback from 2TB of on-board hard disc storage as well as optional 45W power amplifier and you have one amazing new all-in-one "music centre" – to use an old term. This is a super-new hi-res variety though.

Icon Audio’s PS3 MkII is one the best valve phono stages going, using MC input transformers for inaudible hiss. Don’t miss it in our May 2016 issue.
