“Music was reproduced with a sense of purity I’ve heard from very few systems, and I’ve heard hundreds.”
The Blink High End Audio room had a vast array of gear on exhibit including Technics turntables, Fink Team loudspeakers, Aavik Acoustics amplifiers, Linn gear, Illusonic digital components and processors, Kroma loudspeakers, HiDiamond cable and more.
The Fink Team Borg loudspeakers (and they looked like something out of Star Trek; $30,900/pair), featured Air Motion Transformer (AMT) tweeters and other high-tech drivers and delivered remarkably clear sound with no distortion that I could hear, even at volumes which literally rattled the walls and had the exhibitors in the adjoining room barging in and pleading with the Blinkians to please turn it down. (To be fair, this was partly because of an odd resonance effect that amplified the bass in the other room.) Music was reproduced with a sense of purity I’ve heard from very few systems, and I’ve heard hundreds. No surprise that Blink’s Tim Lukas told me the Borgs are being adopted in professional recording studios.
