docked two-box three-way, the pièce de resistance here is Ypsilon’s home-rolled ribbon tweeter obviously tapped off their own transformer. Their designer claimed a colossal 15mm of linear excursion and a 2’900Hz crossover point with a for this driver type shallow filter slope of 12dB/octave. Having petitioned these folks for a review sample of the Phaethon already in Munich, I’ll reserve sonic comments for the formal occasion later in the year except to say there’s good reason why this exhibit opens my report. This top-down view of their VPS-100 phono stage shows off the company’s core competency of transformer/coil tech.
