La Rosita system in the hotel Marriot Munich 2014

A big surprise was the complete La Rosita system in the hotel Marriot. Most people are familiar with their Audio Terminal Server in WiFi, here, the whole system was shown, consisting of their Cloud 9 preamplifier, Tender monoblocks and their Ipanema speakers that utilize the well known Great Plains dual concentric driver.

Sitting in the first row, the sound was gloriously relaxed, coherent, transparent and alive, certainly much more than with many great names of audio. Vocals were sweet and open, the bass was well differentiated, good overall microdynamics, no sterility and just plain involving listening experience.
These guys certainly deserve a wider recognition.
