This just in: Bay Area dealer Audio Image Ltd. (Emeryville, CA) in Lobby Bayside Room will debut the brand-new Audio Research Ref 250 monoblock amplifiers. Priced at $26,000 the pair, these amplifiers are not even on AR’s website yet, and the first production pair is due to arrive next Monday at the dealership. According to Bob Kehn, president of Audio Image Ltd., the amplifiers are so new that AIL is the first company to receive them, and you get to hear them before the rest of the country does.

The rest of Bob’s system includes the following:
Magico Q3 speakers
Audio Research Ref Anniversary Preamp
Audio Research Ref Phono 2 phonostage
Audio Research Ref CD8 player
Accuphase DP-700 SACD player

In addition to chairing two Seminars (Friday 3p-4p, Saturday, 4p-5p, Lobby Peninsula Ballroom II + III), Dan will demo his Momentum monaural amplifiers with the Meridian 808.3 CD player/preamp and Transparent cable system.
