Denver’s Rocky Mountain Audio Fest is the largest consumer audio and home entertainment show in the USA – and always a highlight in Gamut’s annual calendar.
The 2016 show took place on 7th-9th October and featured more than 160 exhibit spaces, housing more than 400 of the world’s leading hi-fi brands.
Once again, the eagle-eared folks from online web magazine AVShowrooms.com were on site, separating the best from the rest and reporting on their findings.
Here at Gamut we’re delighted to be a recipient of one of their coveted Gold Show Awards for Best Sound.
The best sound I experienced at the RMAF 2016 without rival
Listening to the Gamut RS3i speakers, the magazine’s reviewers wrote, “There is no way any stand mount loudspeaker should sound this good. The speakers were set up in a large suite at the Marriott, on the long wall, and at first glance I had my doubts. The RS3i’s were positioned so far apart there was concern on my part as to whether they could possibly perform optimally. Silly me…. Benno Baun Meldgaard of Gamut, one of the top engineers in high-performance audio today, achieved the best sound I experienced at the RMAF 2016 without rival.”
Nearly impossible to surpass
“We played Vanessa Fernandez’s “Here but I’m Gone” and the soundstage was huge; the integration flawless – tight bass, multi-layered mids and highs. I’ll go as far as to say that anyone in the room at the time who was not moved by this session should just check in at the morgue. Clarity, musicality and depth of sound that was, and I believe, will be, nearly impossible to surpass.”
