The Absolute Sound's Robert Harley Gives Best of Show to The Audio Salon
"LA's The Audio Salon showed the new Spectral SDR-4000SL Reference CD Processor ($19,000), a ground-up redesign of the fabulous SDR-4000 Pro. The new model uses a different transport, along with a newly developed buffer/clocking system. The player sounded spectacular driving a Spectral DMC-30SS II preamp and DMA-360 II power amplifiers and Magico Q5s in a large room. Cables were Spectral by MIT, and MIT provided the power conditioning. The room featured custom acoustic treatment from Acoustic Sciences Corporation."

Stereophile's Michael Lavorgna gave The Audio Salon's room at T.H.E. Show Newport Beach 2011 the perverbial two thumbs up:
"...the California Guitar Trio's version of "Bohemian Rhapsody" from their CD California Guitar Trio Rocks the West rocked my expectations, and I kept expecting (and kind of hoping) Freddie Mercury or his voice, would peer out from behind the curtain."
