No room at CES this year sounded better than the Audience set up. No room sounded as sonically accurate, as emotionally and aesthetically beguiling, as musically truthful and flat out startling with dynamic rightness of weight and timbre—as melodically, angelically charismatic.
Paired with the $7000 ClairAudient 12 subwoofer, this system was able to produce some of the most glorious midrange I’ve ever heard. Space was reach-out-and-touch real, micro dynamic events were breath taking, and the overall tonal balance was scary.

We have THREE videos for you, covering the ever expanding product range from Audience LLC. We were lucky enough to convince John McDonald, the founder, to spend some time with us for this interview. We also caught up with chief designer Roger Sheker, who gave us many insights into their speakers and power products. DIY’ers should also check out his brief on Aura capacitors.
