SGR Audio will be showcasing their flagship active loudspeaker, the much anticipated IL4F, AKA "The Illuminator". This will be the first public display of this "beast" of a loudspeaker, featuring 22 drivers total including 8 of the specially development and locally built 12" woofers utilising LSG technology, each capable of 40mm linear travel!
Front end, on the digital side, will be a "Diamond" DAC4 and Diamond PowerBase by MSB Technology combined with their DATA CD4 transport and also the Universal Media Transport (UMT) for SACD & DVD-A playback. Digital interconnection will be by the proprietary "MSB Link" and featuring the new PRO I2S input on the DAC which will actually be the first unit in Aus. The MSB boys will be making their way down-under for the show, and bringing with them a newly developed reference clock source which they claim pushes the limits of clock stability. Little is known about it at this stage, but the rumor is it's housed a space shuttle tile!
The analog side will be a Brinkmann Oasis turntable with EMT-ti cartridge, combined with a Sutherland Hubble battery powered phono stage. Interconnects will be XLO Ultra and Reference series.
Power amplifiers will be our SGR Elite series MKII in full monoblock configuration, two EL60M's, four EL30M's and two EL15M's. These will be driven by our newly developed fully balanced active crossovers in mono configuration (two separate boxes).
All this will be sitting on 3 of our recently developed SGR hi-fi racks, and the turntable will sit center stage on our brand new turntable specific plinth that integrates with the rack to achieve vibration isolation down to 3.5Hz (weight dependent - worst case 7Hz).
The very popular CX3B's and CX4F's will also be on display, along side the MT3FSL's featuring its newly released all-analog 800W plate amplifier with two parametric EQ stages and more "tuneability" than possibly any other active loudspeaker on the market!

Congratulations also to Bernadette and her two young kids from QLD who captured our hearts with their entry. So much so that we decided that to give away a second pair of CX3B's.
Well done to both families and we hope the speakers bring you many years of enjoyment and happy listening!
