Formerly Legend Audio Design? They actually changed their name to Von Gaylord? Why didn't they consult me before this name change? I would have put them straight. But, whatever, this room was crazy.
Those amps are the much talked about liquid-cooled $59,000 Uni Sea Urchins. Best amp name EVER. Can I forgive VG for their naming foibles? Maybe. In any case, the Urchin's triode tubes put out 200 watts and waves of heat through the liquid for a very cool effect. And don't ask if you can put fish inside. I asked and so did every other person who went into the room. The answer is yes, you can. They just won't like it.
The speakers look like the original and famous (to some) Wilson WATTS and use what appears to be the same tweeter though, of course, it isn't. The finish is awesome and they can do any color imaginable. And they cost $4000.
This room put out the biggest freakin' sound. Just wall to wall with depth and space and so much coloration, it was like sitting in an extra-large box of crayolas. It was bizarre and weird and awesome.
These guys were near the 4th floor elevator and always left the door to their room open. Every time I went up to the 4th floor I heard this god-damn Hawaiian ukulele music filling the halls. It was fun the first, oh, dozen times, but after that, it just ridiculous. And then it became insane. And then it was laughable. Forever I will associate Von Gaylord with tiki torches and hula dancing.
