THE Show Newport 2015 Show Coverage

From Jim Hannon, The Absolute Sound:
Red Series Headphone Cables, p. 43 October 2015 issue

From Jason Victor Serinus, Stereophile:
Coverage of our room with Zesto Audio.

From Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound:
After listening to the MrSpeakers new Ether planar headphones ($1499) with a well-regarded tube headphone amp, I switched to the Leto using the same WyWires Red series cable. The difference in spaciousness, air, and top-end transparency was astonishing. The sound was less between the ears and more convincingly on a dimensional stage at eye level.

From Jim Hannon, The Absolute Sound:
The Red Series had far better clarity, definition, and spaciousness than the stock cable in an A/B demo and sounded much more natural.

From Steve Lefkowicz, Positive-Feedback:
Various rooms for WyWires, including Fritz, PTE – Part I

From Enjoy the Music:
Daedalus Audio, Zesto Audio, WyWires, ModWright and VPI made a great sounding room together

AXPONA Chicago 2015 Show Coverage

The Audio Traveler/Part-Time Audiophile:

From Malachi Kenney:
The system here at AXPONA was, no lie, the best I’d heard from them…

The Absolute Sound:

From Greg Weaver:
Dropping by the Daedalus Audio/ModWright Instruments/WyWires room was very rewarding…The entire system was wired end to end with WyWires cables. I found myself irresistibly drawn in by the articulate, coherent, and harmonically rich sound it generated.

The Absolute Sound:

Zesto/WyWires/TAD/Merrill Williams room, Hilton, by Neil Gader,  June 6, 2014

“An example of how experience prevails in terms of dialing in the room setup was the Zesto Electronics room (phono stage/preamp/amp in concert with the Merrill-Williams Audio turntable TAD Evolution One loudspeakers and Wywires Platinum cabling. This team knows it’s system and how crucial room integration can be at these shows.”

Part-Time Audiophile:

Fritz/Wywires/Wyred4Sound room – by Mal Kenney, August 18, 2013
“Some of the credit here has to go to Alex Sventitsky’s WyWires for this. He brought his Power Broker to handle the power-strip duties, but he also brought his affordable line of Blue Series cables to match with this overachieving budget system.”

Dagogo.com:

Fritz/Wywires/Wyred4Sound room – by Jack Roberts, September 2013
“Best Sound for the Money” The thing that set the Fritz/Wywires room apart was the incredibly musical sound for the money.

Stereophile:

Fritz/WyWires/Wyred4Sound room – by Jason Victor Serinus, August 15, 2013
Nina and Alex Sventitsky had a lot to smile about—their WyWires Blue Series cables…were producing an amazing amount of air through FritzSpeakers”

Stereophile:

Daedalus/Modwright/WyWires room – John Atkinson, October 21, 2012
“…drawn in by a superbly natural representation of the cellos, violas, and gambas on a recording of the fifth Bach Brandenburg Concerto.”

Zesto/WyWires/TAD room – Art Dudley, October 19, 2012
“I’ve heard TAD’s high-tech CR1 loudspeakers ($42,000/pair) on other occasions, at other shows. But they’ve never sounded as good as they did at RMAF…”

Zesto/WyWires/TAD room – Stephen Meijas, October 16, 2012

Zesto/WyWires/TAD room – Ray Seda, September 5, 2012
“Wywires speaker cables ended the connection path directly to the superb TAD CR1 monitor speakers sitting atop their dedicated stands.  The analog system was sounding superb and the system as a whole was a real treat for extended listening.”

The Absolute Sound:

Zesto/WyWires/TAD room – Jim Hannon, August 28, 2012
“As in Newport…the system was one of the most musically engaging I heard (at either show). Voices were lifelike and palpable, massed strings were silky and detailed, and overtones were extended and clear, so instruments sounded very natural.”

Stereophile:

Zesto/WyWires/TAD room – Jason Victor Serinus, August 8, 2012
” I felt like leaving this room was an act of defilement .”

Daedalus (with WyWires) – Part-Time Audiophile, August 14, 2012
“Lou was running his own room at CAF, which is good to see, and he seemed quite happy with the setup. I would have been! Okay, so, actually, I was happy with it.”
