We are a bit late on our Newport posts but we are slowly catching up! This year VPI had a fantastic Newport run with tables in multiple rooms ranging from Scouts up the line to Avengers References. One of those such Avengers was in the Amps and Sound room run by our friend Justin Weber. We met Justin years ago at The Newport Show when he had borrowed a Prime for his demonstration. This year at the show he stepped up his game in every aspect from their brand new crossover for their Hudson and Seneca horn-loaded loudspeakers, to them bringing in the an Avenger with JMW 3D-10 arm.
The Hudson Amps and Sound’s unveiled are their new horn-loaded loudspeakers. One of the stars in their room at The Show Newport was their set of Casablanca mono block amplifiers. $3,995.00 for the pair. 60 watts/channel with KT88s. While we weren’t physically at the show and had a chance to hear this room, others have shared with us that the Amps and Sound room had a very wide sound stage with the warmth you would expect from well made tube amplifiers!
As always it was a pleasure making music with the good people at Amps and Sound and we look forward to the next chance to spin some vinyl with them!
