The rEVOlution Begins...
Evolution has taken its course, and now the revolution has begun. Combining the incredible power and authority of the Class D-Hypex Ncore amplifier, great analogue and digital connectivity including HDMI ARC and WiFi streaming of your favourite services with the StreamMagic app. Pair with the brilliant KEF R3 bookshelf speakers, the combination delivers an amazing amount of room-filling bass, detailed highs and musical accuracy that is unmatched with a system of this size. Combined with the quality Pro-Ject X1 turntable and the matching Tube Box S2 valve pre-amp, this is the perfect package when you want to take that next step into a quality analogue and digital world.
This pack includes:
The new all-in-one system, with audiophile sound quality and timeless design. The powerful Evo 75 forms the heart of the new range and features the StreamMagic network streaming platform, versatile connectivity options and the latest in high resolution digital formats.
There are no fancy, unnecessary features; it was a strictly manual turntable design and all of these decisions resulted in unbelievable sound at a fantastic price. The X1 is based on the same concept as the P1, but improved in every aspect thanks to modern materials and new production methods.
The Tube Box S2 will give a full and relaxed laid back sound with lush mids, just like you would expect it from a much bigger high end tube phono pre-amplifier. It offers support for both MM and MC cartridges and comes with many gain settings to be switched on the front panel. Five variable input impedance settings are available to adjust to any MM cartridge, the 47k ohms input impedance setting is fixed and suited for high output MC cartridges. The aluminium/metal casing is adapted to our DS2 line in looks and protects against vibrations and electromagnetic interferences for superior sound.
R3 redefines standmount performance. That's no surprise, as it shares the same drivers as the range-topping R11. A true three-way speaker, the 165mm (6 in.) bass driver pushes bass performance to new extremes. The 125mm (5 in.) midrange driver and 25mm (1 in.) aluminium dome tweeter create a Uni-Q array that defies the expectations from the most compact main speaker in the range.
Speaker cables need to carry as much information as possible and critically, they need to carry dynamic information – particularly the micro-dynamic detail that sets the rhythm and structure of a piece of music. Without that, everything is going to sound ordinary and uninvolving.
