Silicon Arts Design ZL-120 Power Amplifiers
A piece from an award-winning inspired setup. Willing to sell the system as a whole.
"His products have earned high compliments from yours truly over the years, but it seems that everything came together during the January 2007 CES/T.H.E Show in Las Vegas. My vote for "Best Sound" was earned by a system, which apparently represented Mike Slaminski's (Precision Audio and Video of Moorpark, CA) personal system, and which included the Venture Excellence speakers ($56,000/pr), Concert Fidelity CF-080 preamplifier ($18,000) and Silicon Arts Design ZL-120 power amplifiers ($23,000/pr). And so, some months later, Tsuda-san's latest solid-state amplifiers and tube-based line preamplifier arrived on my doorstep."
