Aaudio Imports at Dana Point, CA

By: |

The Southern California city of Dana Point is a sleepy beach front community of villas, mansions and a beautiful harbor of luxury boats, sixty-four miles south of Los Angeles, right off I-5.

Aaudio Imports, the venerable importer of Wilson Benesch speakers from the UK and Ypsilon electronics from Greece, among other notable brands, has moved from its Colorado location to the Southern California city in March 2020. The house of the Ackerman’s and the headquarters of Aaudio Imports is over 4,700 square feet, comprising a main floor, 2nd floor, rooftop patio with ocean view and a basement. It has four bedroom suites with their own full bathrooms, plus an additional two and a half bathrooms throughout.

The Aaudio Imports sound room and a guest bedroom suite occupy the luxurious basement. Covid-19 protocol of social distancing is easily observed. The sound room features straight walls primarily though two column cutouts are located towards the rear back. The main listening rectangle space measures 9 feet high, 19 feet wide, for a length of 11 feet on the left wall and 15 feet on the right wall, which then opens up to a width of 23 feet. The room is 27 feet deep.

$8,700 worth of Pro Room Pack 10 acoustics panels from Acoustic Geometry adorned the strategic spots of the room, creating a spectrally flat and sonically vibrant room. $216,100 worth of cable systems of Stage III Concept constituted the second most numerous product category in this room. For instance, a 2-meter run of the Stage III Leviathan Power Cord runs $19,000 each, and Brian was using four to the tune of $76,000.

On a heavy-duty Wilson Benesch R1 Carbon 3-level Rack ($25,500) set along the left wall, an Aurender W20SE flagship music server ($22,000) took the top shelf, followed by a Ypsilon DAC 1000 SE silver edition Multi-Format Valve DAC ($49,000) on the middle shelf and a Ypsilon PST100 MKII SE silver edition Valve Preamp ($74,000) on the bottom. All three were further isolated from the surface with sets of Stacore CLD Footers ($900 sets of three). On the floor were a pair of Ypsilon Hyperion Hybrid Mono Amps ($93,000 the pair), situated between a pair of the $235,000 Wilson Benesch towers.
