ABOUT FINKTEAM BORG SPEAKERS
FinkTeam Borg is a two-way loudspeaker to dream of.
Truth is incontrovertible.
FInkTeam’ s Borg will surprise you – rarely does a speaker in this size and price segment perform with such musical precision, verve and emotion.
The German manufacturer FinkTeam under the leadership of speaker design luminary Karl-Heinz Fink has created a two-way loudspeaker with outstanding traits.
Borg’s unique and beautiful cabinet has also been carefully crafted to avoid resonances. Coloration and time smear are reduced to a minimum, Borg produces a precise stereo image focus and the lack of interference will move you to listen for hours without fatigue. The result is a rarely heard harmonic tonality.
The speaker possesses a true ability to perform naturally and to provide music that sounds authentic, detailed and unadulterated by technology, and yet, magical. Experts worldwide agree that the Borg is a significant design accomplishment, it was featured on the official poster for the Munich High End 2019.
The acoustically finely tunable Borg is indeed a serious assault on the loudspeaker establishment.
Boston based Blink High End is proud to show this outstanding speaker at the New York Audio Show.[Learn more]
ABOUT KROMA AUDIO SPEAKERS
Kroma Audio speakers are pure passion, emotion, and magic.
Kroma Audio was created out of a desire to combine the highest level of audio technology with the naturalness and realism of a live performance.
Kroma speaker cabinets are fully made from Krion, with carbon fiber inlays on the sides, also available in true 24-karat gold leaf, walnut wood and other finishes. Kroma has chosen Krion to manufacture the speaker cabinets because of the high acoustic insulation capacity of the material.
The speakers are coupled to the ground via included specially manufactured feet made of non-metallic components. There are as little as possible metal parts inside, not even screws. Instead, the drivers are mounted using thermoplastic screws.
The passive crossover is comprised of ultra high-quality components from Duelund, Mundorf and very special NOS components and is isolated in a hermetically separated chamber. The tweeter is made by Hiquphon, Denmark.
Kroma speakers always turn in a dynamic, vibrant, highly revealing lifelike performance. Their bass is fast, well-timed and utterly coherent, supremely linear from the lowest to the highest notes, plumbing to subwoofer-like depths and remaining ruler-like linear right up into their upper treble.
With Kroma Audio, Spain has put itself on the map of countries competing for the top, giving to the world an outstanding speaker line.
Blink High End will demonstrate Kroma Audio’s Julieta at Room 703.[Kroma’s full line – Learn more]

High precision filters, crossovers, and bass management linearize the system and optimize it for the room.
An entirely unique technique, beyond room eq, making bass dryer and sound less resonating.
Makes the sound more spacious than your room would normally allow. Optimally uses all available loudspeakers.
Localization quality of an acoustic concert? Add a center loudspeaker and enjoy the world’s best center channel processing.
• Dynamic Range
Remasters music in real-time for effortless casual listening.
• Remote Tuning
Perfectly optimizing your system and room is as simple as this: measure your system, send the data to Illusonic, load our result into IAP – done!
The number of possibilities are immense: different rooms, different setups, different number of channels, different listening habits: Complexity is high and chance of error, too. To ensure an optimally tuned system for each customer, Illusonic developed its remote tuning system, by which Illusonic professionals analyze and tune each customer’s system and room acoustic. Tuning service is included for free with every IAP.
Blink High End will show the IAP 16 in a stereo setup at Room 703.[Learn more]
ABOUT HiDIAMOND CABLES
HiDiamond cables. From Rome with love.
When thinking of Italy, high performance fast cars, luxury fashion, beautiful landscape and some of the world’s finest music come to mind. A newcomer to the US market, Italian company HiDiamond will impress you with their open, honest and fast musical sound.
HiDiamond enable you to hear what your source and loudspeakers mean to express. They are beautifully well designed and built and stand out. Hi Diamond cables feature a treated copper core known a 4VRC. HiDiamond “bakes” the copper four times to achieve the highest purity and sound quality (normal baking only takes place twice). Then graphite is added into the mix o act as a barrier to noise.
You will notice an isolator pod along the length of the cable itself. The cables cancel the skin effect between individual leads and therefore the width of the musical signal barrier, guaranteeing greater linearity and low amplitude of the sine wave.
HiDiamond cables reveal and energize the performance without being exaggerated or clinical. They allow detail and musicality to flow, the enhanced focus and precision gives the presentation a lift and a shine while infusing it with extra energy.
From a reviewer: “Used in a variety of systems, these cables never failed to impress – and they also boast superb construction”. Competing with the very best, HiDiamond have a previously unseen and unheard of performance – cost ratio.

DEVIALET EXPERT PRO 220 INTEGRATED AMPLIFIER WITH THE SAM (SPEAKER ACTIVE MATCHING) SYSTEM.
“The expert Pro is one of the best amplifiers ever. Its technical performance is at the very highest level, with extremely low distortion, low noise, and extraordinarily flat response into loads. The amplifier uses a Class D circuit to rough out the output signal and a Class A analog amplifier to trim things to perfection. And effectively perfect they are. But what sets the Expert Pro into a realm above all others is the SAM system, wherein the performance parameters of your speakers, measured by Devialet, are downloaded (by the user) onto an SD card and then loaded into the Expert Pro At that point, the Expert Pro “knows” what electrical signal in the bass should be sent to the speakers to produce an acoustic replica of the Expert Pro’s input. It watches the speaker, checking it 86,000 times a second, and arranges things so that the speaker will reproduce the actual input. The result is better phase behavior (and hence better “timing”) and lowered distortion. Also the system tracks the dynamic envelope that the speaker can generate, and when response can be safely extended, it extends it. The results are all but uncanny. The superb but small Graham Audio LS5/9 suddenly sounded like a an equally good but much larger speaker, capable of a far more truthful picture of the bass of orchestral music, for example. Dynamic limits still existed, of course, but overall,not to put too fine a point on it, you have to hear this to believe it. And with larger speakers that already have something like full bass extension, there is, even so, much improvement in precision and consequent realism. The musical effect of what the SAM system does is very striking and very satisfying, as well. the SAM system is something new, and truly remarkable (Review forthcoming).”
