National Audio Show 2011

A brand that has been carving out a niche at the affordable end of the scale, Astin Trew showed the first model in the $2500-to-$6500 Concord range. This is a featured-packed phono stage with multiple inputs and adjustable gain, resistance and capacitance via controls behind its clear-acrylic panel. It can run in stereo or mono and will cost $3700. Other components destined to join the range at CES next year are a DAC with optional FireWire or USB input modules and a streamer/CD transport with the same digital input options.
