Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2013 Hot Product
A show rarely goes by for which Nola doesn't have a speaker to debut. This time it's the Metro Grand Reference Gold ($33,000/pair), whose enhancements over the model it replaces include woofers that use alnico magnets for better linearity, gold-plated phase plugs for woofers (which Carl Marchisotto of Nola found removed a slight though noticeable coloration in the lower midrange), Mundorf polypropylene/oil capacitors in the crossover, and Nordost silver wire to connect eveything. The sound was effortless and very supple driven by Audio Research Reference electronics.
