The Halcro room had the surround sound system of your dreams and the sound was quite amazing with the right disc. Problem is , would you want all your music to be in surround?

The Von-Schweikert room at the San Remo had everything they make showing with VAC and Acoustic Zen. Along to make things sound "right" was Quantum's line of AC treatments.

Not your Dad's stereo. Well just the set-up for recording and payback. The real front-end consisted of a VAC Phi 2.0 Master Control preamplifier ($15,000), an Oracle CD2000 transport ($7500), DA2500 dac ($7500), Delphi Mk.V turntable ($5000 without arm or cartridge), and a Graham 2.2 tonearm.
