"3 High-End Audio Components That Will Elevate Your Home Sound System"by Robert Floss
"If vinyl has been in the back of your mind—or you rediscovered some grail records in the back of an attic—Andover Audio’s $1,999 Model-One Turntable Music System is a one-box solution. Presented in a midcentury design and compact enough to sit atop Herman Miller’s Nelson bench, the Model-One includes a turntable sourced from Pro-Ject and featuring a carbon-fiber tonearm and a pre-mounted Ortofon 2M Silver cartridge. The multifaceted system also features built-in speakers and amplification. Inside the tidy cabinet are four 3.5-inch aluminum-diaphragm woofers plus two Air Motion Transformer tweeters driven by 150 w Class D amps, which create natural sound and a broad stereo landscape.
Andover’s proprietary IsoGroove Technology eliminates the kind of sonic mischief that can happen when a turntable is placed near speakers. In addition to the phono source, the system features Bluetooth 4.2 with APT-X wireless streaming from your smartphone or computer, a dedicated input for Wi-Fi streaming devices, subwoofer output and a walnut-trimmed remote. Optional cabinet stands create a 41-inch-tall tower that can house 200 LPs. For heftier bass, the $799 Model-One Turntable Subwoofer, which uses a pair of 10-inch woofers driven by a 150 w Class D amplifier, can replace the lower cabinet to create a single, streamlined, do-it-all tower."
