Sonnet Audio Morpheus DAC. New company from Metrum founder, following the sale of Metrum to M2Tech. Website is shonky currently, as early days of Metrum, but initial reviews look promising.
https://www.sonnet-audio.com

Voxativ Absolut system, either Hagen or FIT. Single driver speakers with a matching dac and amp box, complete with DSP to help even out the frequency response. Rumour at the Bristol show of possible Audio T distribution coming.

Audio Note Cobra integrated amp, complete with onboard dac.

I too thought Voxativ sounded interesting. I spent around an hour there, and asked Voxative for review samples.

The Audio Note Cobra with onboard USB/DAC is strong on the £££s Vs sonic results.

The small Martin Logan floor standers in PMCs room were also affordable fun too.

Overall, a much more upbeat show, in my view. I marked nine rooms as making recognisable music to a greater or lesser degree. Some vendors at last seem to be recognising and responding to the need for low-ish cost products that deliver good sonic value.

Would be great to have a credible, sane review of switches: Melco, Uptone Etherregen, Cisco, English Electric (Chord Company) etc.

I think Martin is already plotting something along those lines.

I might have mentioned it before, but a Dan D’Agostino Progression Integrated with the digital and phono options would be good to see. Also the fully loaded Vitus RI101. Virus seem to be competing with Naim, so would be good to get your take on their stuff.
