The performance of this beautiful system, especially late Saturday through Sunday, was ethereal and awe-inspiring. With Hubble-like clarity, stunning speed, awesome dynamics, incredible ambient resolution and,  sledgehammer power. The sound was so well coordinated that it formed an airy, breathing 3-D soundscape that morphed continuously with each recording. Timbre was spot-on and instruments were surrounded by their own space, easily delineating their placement within the soundstage.

The host, “The Voice That Is” (TVTI), put together an incredible demonstration that resulted in standing room only all weekend long with showgoers visibly moved by the mind-blowing experience listening in room 509 was at LAAS 2017! This is the typical reaction to rooms setup by the very capable Doug White of TVTI.

Olu Sonuga & Bill Artope of Dynamic Design attended and Doug White of TVTI was present.  The teamwork displayed in the room resulted in the harmonious coming together of the different brands and personalities to speak in one sweet voice all weekend long.

The sound in the room was impressive, with stunning clarity; pitch perfect tonality; incredible micro and macro dynamics; and the best bass performance I’ve ever heard at a show, there was total room lock on the Gregory Porter – “Holding On” track. It was truly an experience to behold! All genres of music were also well served and presented, the system produced an immersive and emotional connection to the music and that’s as it should be in a high-end audio system!

Dynamic Design Cables win 2017 TAS Award!

dynamic design cables

We’re very excited that The Absolute Sound (TAS), the premier high-end audio publication, has awarded several Dynamic Design cables the esteemed 2017 Editors’ Choice Awards. Our Challenger AE15, Lotus AE15 power cables, Titania Interconnects and, Titania speaker cables were awarded this prestigious honor! It is always gratifying when our design philosophies and execution are acknowledged and bestowed the highest industry honors for product design excellence and performance!

TAS had this to say about the combination of the Challenger AE15 Digital and Lotus AE15 power cables:

 “Commemorating its 15th Anniversary, the AE15 Lotus Analog is designed for high-power components, the Heritage Series AE15 Challenger Digital for low-power or source components. This superb combination exhibits an openness, harmonic ease, and lack of constriction that effectively permits it to disappear from the soundspace. Its overall character has a neutral-to-warm glow, but with a bolder, slightly more forward sound that physicalizes
images and sculpts their boundaries.” NG, 245

TAS also had this to say about the combination of the new Titania Interconnects and speaker cables:

“An extrovert, the spirited Titania [combo] has a more forward, cooler presentation but its presence, dynamic energy, and bass response are electrifying. Sheer power, colorful timbre, and transient speed are its strong suits. As a general observation, its soundstage is a little more proximate, and doesn’t quite match the dimensionality of NG’s reference cable. Still, it is one of the more purely exciting and toe-tapping cables in recent memory.” NG, 269

All Dynamic Design cables utilize innovative and cutting edge materials and technologies in our designs. These in-turn deliver the most accurate reproduction, within a high performance system, of the original recorded event! All Dynamic Design cables are available for in-home audition through our In-Home Audition Program (IHAP) that let potential customers experience the performance of our products in the familiarity of their own systems and environment.

Neutron SW16 wins Prestigious Brutus Award

Dynamic  Design’s Neutron SW16 Digital power cord wins the prestigious and highly coveted Positive-Feedback 2016 Brutus Award, the highest award that can be bestowed by Positive-Feedback! We are so proud and grateful to the PF Editor-in-Chief, Dr. David Robinson, for the award, it means a lot to us. This award validates our efforts in designing a power cord that profoundly elevates the performance of digital front-ends no matter the pedigree.

Dr. David, in his comments about the Neutron SW16, noted how the Neutron SW16 ascended to the top of the line as the power cord of choice for digital gear in his system.

The Neutron SW16 materials and processes are without peer, pushing it to the pinnacle of digital power cords! With SOTA design and build, the Neutron SW16’s insulation, conductors and, shielding represent a profound advancement from what is available today:

Insulation System: Cable insulation should be terrible conductors of electrical signals; the worse they are as conductors the better the cable performance. Storing and the subsequent releasing of the signal create distortions that adversely affect the performance of a cable. The air impregnated, multi-layer film type insulation system in the Neutron SW16 delivers a charge storage of just a mere 0.3 more than a perfect vacuum. This results in a velocity of propagation of 95% the speed of light, reducing signal smearing to a minimum with superb phase linearity and stunning clarity!

Shielding: The pervasiveness of noise around today’s audio systems demand a full commitment to protecting the audio signal, by designing efficient and effective shields. Mere twisting of conductors regardless of geometries is not adequate to protect from the myriad and complex types of noise bombarding our systems. The Neutron SW16 features a special twisting geometry and multiple shield types that are layered in a proprietary sequence to deliver ultra wide-bandwidth protection well into the gigahertz range. This results in 100% shield coverage, over -95db shielding effectiveness and ultra-fast propagation speed!

Conductors: The Neutron SW16 utilizes massive 99.9999% high purity copper and silver stranded conductors that are specially treated to maximize conductivity and power handling. The conductors are twisted in a complex and intricate array ensuring maximum isolation from crosstalk and reduced coupling capacitance.

Dynamic Design wins coveted Audio Oasis Award

awards

 

Dr. David Robinson, Editor-in-chief of Positive Feedback bestows the prestigious Audio Oasis award for sonic excellence to Dynamic Design and partners at T.H.E. Show Newport Beach 2016! The Audio Oasis Award is coveted by all exhibitors at the show because it rewards sonic excellence that separates the men from the boys! We are proud to have validation that all the great products and hard work that went into the room formed a synergistic voice that merited such accolades! It was a fabulous show and we’re ecstatic to have participated with our partners, LampizatOr NA, Tidal Audio and, The Voice That Is. The system was absolutely stunning in its beauty and sonics with the help of Stillpoints, Telos Audio, Resolution Acoustics and, AnnaLyric Systems!

The first few days were a struggle, as the system hadn’t yet settled, but finally came into its own on Saturday. It was the best sound we’d achieved in show conditions till now, stunning transparency and clarity; incredible dynamics and power, beguiling presence and naturalness (especially with Blue Coast Records hi-res recordings) and, ever-changing (based on recording data) soundscape that was amazingly deep, finely layered and 3-dimensional!

The system at T.H.E. Show Newport Beach 2016 consisted of the LampizatOr Komputer music server and Golden Gate DAC; the gorgeous Tidal Audio Contriva G2 speakers, the Impulse dual-mono amplifier and, the Preos-D Pre-amplifier; Dynamic Design’s Neutron SW16 Digital power cords, Heritage series interconnects, digital cables, power cords and, speaker cables; Stillpoints loaned us their ESS rack, Aperture panels and footers; Resolution Acoustics supplied room treatment panels from their Foundation series and, AnnaLyric Systems supplied their AC-6 AC conditioner.

All the partners in the worked well together and selflessly to make the room a big success! Doug White of Tidal Audio & The Voice that is, Bill Artope & Olu Sonuga of Dynamic Design AV, Fred Ainsley Jr. and Robert Reich of LampizatOr NA were all up to the challenge and proved that more heads are better than one. We look forward to more future collaborations and Audio Oasis awards.

Cookie Marenco and her all-stars from Blue Coast Records also helped the room sound great by generously providing stunningly recorded hi-res DSD files for playback in our room. Cookie and her crew graced us with their presence in the room offering valuable feedback and praise for the sound in the room. We thank Cookie, Meghan Andrews, Valerie Joyce, Nick Phillips, Alex De Grassi, Jenni Maybee and, Marco for lending us their ears and for acknowledging their music was portrayed accurately in the room! T.H.E. Show Newport Beach 2016 was rousing success for room 419!!!

On behalf of all our partners in the room we thank Dr. David for taking the time to visit and listen to the presentation in room 419, the Audio Oasis Award means a lot to us, thanks Doc!!!

Dynamic Design AV wins Audio Oasis Award!

Awards

Dynamic Design AV is extremely proud to receive this PFO Audio Oasis award for Axpona 2016. We are thankful to Dr. David Robinson, Editor-in-Chief, of PFO for recognizing the great sound in our room and acknowledging the contribution of Dynamic Design AV and all the parties in the room! We’re also thankful to Doug White of TVTI, our host, for his generosity and confidence in our ability to deliver outstanding performance in such a great, well thought out system! We will always cherish this award and use it as motivation to continue to deliver cutting edge performance in our products.

The system featured our new Neutron SW16 Digital power cord on the Bricasti DAC, the new Heritage AE15 speaker cables on the Tidal Agoria speakers and, the Challenger AE15 Digital power cord on the the Aurender W20 music server. The new Neutron SW16 Digital power cord slots above the Challenger AE15 Digital power cord in our Heritage series. It features bigger high purity silver and copper conductors than the Challenger AE15 plus a new geometric lay of the conductors that reduces coupling capacitance in the cable and, our flagship Dynamic Shielding technology. All these result in better performance overall with a lower noise floor, better density of image, better extension at frequency extremes and; powerful, explosive dynamics. The new Heritage AE15 speaker cables utilize our ultra-low loss MLIS insulation system over specially arrayed high purity conductors and our Dynamic Shielding technology. They deliver a totally open and see thru performance coupled with discreet soundstage mapping that transport the listener to the original recording venue!

The sound in the room was extremely relaxed and inviting, the soundstage size and the placement of instruments were stunningly precise and airy. Instrumental timbres were realistic and tactile rendering images with incredible “reach out and touch them” sensation! Low end power and dynamics were ultra-fast and impactful lending a solidity to the proceedings that anchored images to their own space within the well lit soundstage!
