In your latest issue Jon has awared the YG Kipods Best of Show award.
The ads in the magazines claim that these are the "best". Pretty strong claim, considering there are some killer Wilson, MBLs, and Focals in the elite price point category.
I heard them for 15 minutes, and I thought they were very good for a non-electrostat, but they were $40K. They were more 3 dimensional than the CLX that I was listening to just prior to them, but lacked the transparency, sound stage, and air that I love from electrostats. (They were driven by Manley amps and Krell Evo preamp, with simaudio and krell sources.)
Jon, you have had the good fortune to listen to some killer stuff over the last 6 months. What are your thoughts?
What does everyone else think?
