Gamut Audio went full hog with their speakers and components. A number of people were telling me I had to check out Gamut. Gamut? Out of Denmark, these guys have a background at the legendary driver maker Scan Speak. Naturally, they're using all Scan Speak drivers.
I walked in during an orchestral piece riddled with gunshots and, damn, if it didn't sound real. I mean, I live in LA so I know what gunshots sound like. The attack from those drivers was killer and the bass was powerful and full from those dual 7" drivers. Oh, and the music sounded great too. For me, definitely some of the best sound at the show so far.
Interestingly, Gamut is going with a different sort of retail model. While each individual component is made to work independently, Gamut really wants to champion a complete package system. They may be too trend-setting for high end audio, but they want complete system auditions and I agree completely. We need to see more "one box" solutions. If I wanted an all-star system without having to deal with component matching or tweaking, this would be it.
Gamut DI 150 integrated goes for $9800, the CD3 is $6000 and the L-7 speakers are $15k. Big speaker pic next page.
