“The sound delivered through the new redesign of the Rethm Maarga v2 loudspeakers left this listener absolutely sure she could live with this speaker for the rest of her days. Jacob George, the designer, has made such monumental improvements delivering more warmth in the mids without sacrificing any of the detail, and in fact, bringing the musical experience closer to me with more overall dynamics. Simply, Anne Bisson’s “Le vent soufflé encore” from the album Conversations, a track I’ve heard hundreds of times over the years, delivered new information that was astonishing. Anne’s vocal mix in the beginning was profoundly more apparent as was her daughter’s at the end of the song. In addition to being in my top three best sounding rooms at AXPONA 2019, the speakers are a value at under 10,000 U.S. dollars (no price increase) and can compete with any speaker five to ten times the price. No exaggeration. A room with this kind of sound reminds me why I do what I do.“

“The   Well Pleased Audio Vida   room has already been recognized for Best Sound by multiple audio publications, so I’m not the only one who was impressed. The big story in was the debut of the  Rethm Maarga v2  loudspeakers at only $9,750.  The speakers were being driven by an   Audio Hungary    Qualiton A20i   SE Integrated Amplifier.  I  reviewed  this amp back in the fall of 2017. This little combo costs less than $15,000, and it could complete with every system in the show. When you consider that it was using only a digital source, this is amazing for me to say.  For the old analog-loving Audio Beatnik to be this excited about a system without a turntable, you can bet the digital source was really fine. It was the incredible sounding   Aqua Acoustic    Quality Formula xHD D/A  at $17,000 and the   Innuos    Zenith MkIII Music Server  for $4,250.  The rest of the system consisted of a   GigaWatt    PC-4 Power Conditioner  for $10,000, Diamond Reference Cables from   Swisscables   and the equipment was sitting on   SGR Hifi    Racks.”
