Pressestimmen über Credo Audio an der Florida Audio Expo 2022

The Audioshield distribution room had a tasty array of great sounding gear courtesy of Credo, EMM labs, DS Audio, and VPI. The speakers were the Credo EV Reference ONE which were driven by a pair of EMM Labs MTRX2 monoblock power amplifiers. For digital duty, the output from EMM’s NS1 streamer was being fed to a DA2 DAC which was then routed through A matching EMM PRE Stereo preamplifier and then off to the amps. For vinyl playback, a DS Audio optical phono cartridge was fitted to what I am guessing was a 12” carbon fiber tonearm affixed to the VPI Avenger Plus turntable. This was tied to an EMM DS-EQ1 optical equalizer phono stage which hooked into the aforementioned preamp. I got to listen to a little bit of vinyl and digital and the sound of both was extremely enjoyable. The Credo speakers are somewhat new to me and they made a very positive impression.


The EMM/Credo/Audioshield This $290k system consisted of EMM Labs electronics, Credo Audio speakers, van den Hul cartridge and wiring, a VPI Avenger direct-drive ‘table, and the impressive Wolf Audio Systems Red Wolf 2 server. The result was the epitome of the Swiss school of sound: clean, fast, airy, and ultra-high resolution. Tame bass, no doubt a room-based anomaly, was the only thing holding this system back.
