Boulder 2120 D/A Converter
As was the case with Lamm Industries, YG Acoustics had the best show of its relatively young life, performing equally well in a second room, where its $73,800, five-driver, four-way, quasi-D’Appolito Sonja 1.2 floorstander was paired with Boulder’s 2120 DAC ($65,000), 2110 preamp ($55,000) and 2160 stereo amp ($53,000). As was the case with the Carmel II, the sound was as rich and sweet as couverture chocolate. Rather amazingly, Boulder actually had the Bartók quartets on its server, and I listened to the entire Second Quartet, simply because I couldn't tear myself away. The Sonja/Boulder combo supplied superb articulation, gorgeous timbre, and that same buttery treble throughout, yet with no lack of texture or bite on this fabulous piece of music, even during the most intense contrapuntal passages in the second movement Allegro. These were really wonderful loudspeakers and electronics, featuring what was perhaps the most analog-like DAC (the Boulder 2120) I’ve heard at a trade show.
