CAF 2022 Highlights: The Voice That Is | Vinnie Rossi

While the determination of beauty lies in the eye of the beholder, to my eyes the BRAMA gear sings with understated elegance.

Vinnie Rossi teamed up with Doug White of Newtown Square, PA’s The Voice That Is, pairing Vinnie’s new BRAMA Preamplifier ($33,995) and BRAMA Stereo Power Amplifiers ($33,995/each) with the new Tidal Audio Piano G3 ($64,000/pair) using Tidal Audio’s new Contros Digital Controller ($60,000) as source. New, new, new, and new!

This system sang with a smooth yet refined voice in one of the larger ‘Meeting Rooms’ in the Rockville Hilton.

The BRAMA sat on the new Critical Mass Systems Ultra-Q Rack and stands (pricing varies), while Siltech Royal Crown/Double Royal Crown cables (pricing varies) wired everything together.

The BRAMA Preamplifier sports two horizontally mounted 300B triodes inside its bead blasted aluminum chassis, which is just one of many surprises in its design. The included remote has a full color OLED display, run in monochrome, to match the aesthetics of the in-house made dials. With a built in ambient light sensor and accelerometer, this isn’t your grandmother’s remote.

Vinnie Rossi’s BRAMA Integrated Amplifier (more info) was sitting nearby on silent display and I hope to un-silent it in the Barn some day.
