Axpona 2022: MoFi Distribution | Mastersound, Manger and more

I am a fan of Germany’s Manger Audio and said so in my review of their S1 Active Speakers.

I am also a fan of the 845 triode, so this room presented by MoFi Distribution that paired the Mastersound Compact 845 Integrated Amplifier ($10,495) with the Manger P2 Passive 2-Way Floorstanding Speaker ($18,995/pair) tickled a few of my fancies.

The dual-armed Dr. Feikert Analog Blackbird Turntable (starts at $7495) using a pair of EMT Cartridges (I neglected to note the exact models) fed its signal to a Whest Audio whestTWO.2 Discrete High Resolution All Discrete Phono Stage ($3495).

The 30 Watt single-ended Mastersound Compact 845 drove the 89 dB (1W/1m) Manger’s with ease. There are watts, and then there are Watts.
