As far as digital sources go, the Audio Alternative has embraced this source since the introduction of the first digital players in 1987 with Digital Audio Tape (DAT) and the introduction of the compact disc as we currently know them in 1979.  Today, with the advent of streaming digital, you can enjoy the best that the industry has to offer, uncompressed digital files up to 24-bit/192kHz.

No matter where you want to start, come in and listen for yourself.  We have a huge selection of Digital Analog Converters (DACs), Streaming Servers and complete digital systems from entry to Audiophile high resolution sources.

The Reference 75 Special Edition (SE) Stereo Amplifier now on active display at the Audio Alternative
The current Reference Series amplifiers are some of the most awarded amplifiers Audio Research has created - each amplifier has been designated Amplifier of the Year or Component of the Year from major trade magazines. In spite of such great success, the engineers and designers at Audio Research have been hard at work creating the new state-of-the-art in music reproduction.

In addition to changing from the KT120 to the KT150 output tube, there are a number of active and passive parts changes in the SE amplifiers that result in dramatic sonic improvements. Simply put, they are better in every way: purity and lack of grain, resolution, micro- and macro-dynamics, separation and instrumental focus, phase and time coherence, and greatly improved bass weight, authority and control. These improvements are immediate and gratifying.

Reference 75, 150, and 250 amplifiers can be fully upgraded to include all SE enhancements, adding further value and performance for owners of existing amplifiers. 

Vandersteen Audio introduces the Quatro Wood CT, the latest evolution in speaker technology and sound quality to derive from the research & development efforts that delivered the patented carbon-fiber Perfect-Piston drivers used in the flagship Model 7. While the Perfect-Piston Tweeter used in the Model 7 is the fully embodied deal of high-frequency purity and resolution, the Quatro Wood CT (Carbon Tweeter) features the superb Carbon Tweeter from the renowned Model 5A Carbon.

The Vandersteen Treo loudspeaker is now available in an optional Treo CT version (Carbon Tweeter). The Treo CT delivers a surprising amount of the air, space and natural purity previously heard only in Vandersteen’s top speaker models: the Quatro Wood CT, Model 5A Carbon and the Model Seven.

The Vandersteen Quatro Wood CT & Treo CT Loudspeakers are now on active display at the Audio Alternative
