BRINKMANN ROCKS THE ROCKIES!!!

–Brinkmann Source and Electronics Win “Best of Show”—

 October 13, 2016: Brinkmann Audio has been awarded “Best of Show” by TAS reviewer Steven Stone. Making its North American debut at last week’s Rocky Mountain Audio Fest (RMAF), Brinkmann’s MQA-ready Nyquist Digital-to-Analogue Converter ($18,000) received universal acclaim from Press, Manufacturers and Attendees alike who praised its transparency and resolution combined with analogue-like bloom and sweetness.

In his RMAF Show Report (http://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/rmaf-2016-show-report-steven-stone/) , Stone noted “It was the only small-sized room with full-range speakers that had deep bass without midbass bloat.” Brinkmann’s Marconi Line Preamplifier and MONO Power Amplifiers distinguished a playback chain that also included Vandersteen 5A Carbon Loudspeakers, HRS Component Stands and Isolation Bases and Audioquest cabling. A “Real-World Reference System,” Brinkmann components are notable for delivering state-of-the-art performance in compact and affordable packages. With Nyquist—The Digital Source So Good, Only An Analog Legend Could Have Built It—Brinkmann designers Helmut Brinkmann and Dr Matthias Luck have established a new benchmark for digital decoding.

Our thanks to Stephen Stone for recognizing the qualities which make Nyquist—and Brinkmann Audio—so special.

Nyquist will ship Q4, 2016, at an MSRP of $18,000
