Genesis is at the CES 2018 show in the same room – 29-233 in the Venetian Towers. This year’s analogue source is the VPI Vanquish direct-drive turntable with the brand new “Fat Boy” tonearm bearing the Transfiguration Proteus D cartridge with the diamond cantilever. Phono preamp is the Genesis Gold Phono.
The heart of the system is the brand new Viola Chorale integrated amplifier (price to be determined) sporting an optional DAC that was literally soldered together the day before Paul Jayson flew out to Las Vegas.
And of course, the loudspeakers are Gary Koh’s latest design – the Genesis Maestro. The latest generation of the beloved Genesis 5-series loudspeakers, they have been garnering a lot of praise for accuracy, neutrality and transparency (and simply awesome bass).
