La Source. The Ultimate CD/SACD Player and Digital music centre
Almost certainly, the World's best CD/SACD and Digital music centre.

For the first time in our history, Audio Aero Design has decided to create its top of the line CD/SACD Player?: «?La Source?». This creation is our own interpretation of the ultimate Source, using not only the latest technology available in the digital domain, but also the synthesis of all our know-how accumulated over 10 years of experience, testing and listening.

Soundstage Review.

6 Moons Review,

We have a demo unit. And stock.

 

 La Source Music Controller. The Ultimate CD/SACD DAC and Digital music centre

Same extraordinary performance as the La Source, but without the transport. This gives a considerable saving as the transport in the La Fontaine is exceptionally sophisticated and very expensive one. External transports, DVBD players or Blu Ray players can be used as a transport to give the best of both Worlds.

La Fontaine CD/SACD Player  and Digital music centre

The next best thing to the World's best CD/SACD and Digital music centre.

Extraordinary design S.T.A.R.S - (Solution for Time Abstraction ReSampling) digital signal processing is handled at 32 bit 384 kHz, combined with an ultra low jitter clock design that delivers remarkable resolution. La Fontaine incorporates the Esoteric UMK-5 high precision aluminum turntable and drive mechanism, equipped with an aluminum tray to extract the maximum of information from both CD & SACD discs. Complete versatility with both digital and analog signals (inputs & outputs) as well as an asynchronous 24/192 USB input for easy connection to music servers.
We have a demo unit.

 

 La Fontaine CD/SACD DAC  and Digital music centre

Same extraordinary performance as the La Fontain, but without the transport. This gives a considerable saving as the transport in the La Fontaine is a very sophisticated and expensive one. External transports, DVBD players or Blu Ray players can be used as a transport to give the best of both Worlds.
Note review above for the La Fontaine. The DAC is recommended as the ultimate performance for the best posible price.

Company history:

Created in 1997, AUDIO AERO is the high end audio equipment division of Mazères Aviation group, started 20 years ago. This group includes now 5 high-tech companies with main activities in aeronautics and racing industries.

The AUDIO AERO team is composed of music lovers, hence we developed a range of equipment with a special ability to reproduce very natural and involving sound.

To reach our goal, we had to avoid HiFi technological highways and find a different concept. Therefore, we turned towards a combined parallel triode/pentode, idea started in 1953 with great expectations (triode for musicality and pentode for power) but revealing to be a contradiction in itself, leading to relative low power and high distortion.

Now, after two years research, we realized the perfect match of these two tubes and are proud to announce a new power amplification concept called TRAC system meaning Tube Relay Amplification Concept. This configuration allows an exceptional musical reproduction, giving extraordinary realistic sound and soundstage.

This system is implemented in Prestige Monoblocks and Capitole Power Amp. On the cutting edge of high-end technologies, soon will be released a subminiature tube A/V processor featuring optional 24/192 STARS process and digital room correction, with an hybrid subminiature tube/DMOS 6x100W Audio/Video Power Amplifier.
