The warmth of timber in support of quality HiFi product has been a combination for the ages. It’s a mark of quality, of beauty and style. Now thanks to this incredible combination of high-end audio products it’s also a mark of sensational sound as well. At the heart of The Wonder of Walnut is Pioneer’s flagship integrated amplifier, the A-70DAK, delivering a serious level of detail to Focal’s all-new Aria 906 bookshelf speakers in Prime Walnut. To ensure they’re being delivered the detail they deserve we’ve accompanied them with Pro-Ject Audio’s serious 2Xperience SB – also in walnut – fitted with Ortofon’s award winning 2M Bronze cartridge. And to guarantee that none of that information is lost in translation we’re equipping The Wonder of Walnut with high-end factory terminated speaker cable in the for of Tellurium’s Q Blue. There simply is no weak spot in this stunning ensemble of audio components. A pack that will both look and sound the part long into the future.
Ortofon 2M Bronze Ortofon’s 2M Bronze is an award winning cartridge. It’s nude, fine-line diamond stylus is housed in a newly developed Lexan DMX Piano Black, ensuring high rigidity while eliminating unwanted resonances. It’s Ortofon’s perfect sweet spot between the attack of the 2M Black ($999) and the balance of the 2M Blue ($329). Marc Mickelson of The Audio Beat stated in 2016 that the 2M Bronze not only represented the 2M line’s sweet spot ‘but also its musical core.’
