A Glut of Gamut
Posted Fri Jun 2, 2006, 3:53 PM ET - By Wes Phillips

Gamut makes everything from source components to loudspeakers, so the Gamut room really was the Gamut room. Lars Goller designed the $14,800/pair l-7 three-way floorstanders and I was knocked out by how relaxed and natural acoustic music sounded though them. They looked fabulous, too. Stereophile Show

Gamut's Front End
Posted Fri Jun 2, 2006, 3:55 PM ET - By Wes Phillips

Stereophile ShowGamut was driving the L-7s with its $6000 CD3 and $9800 DI 150 180Wpc integrated amplifier. The CD 3uses Burr Brown's PCM 1792 converter and upsamples the signal to 24-bits/192kHz. I didn't get many details about the DI 150, but it does have balanced and single-ended inputs and balanced preamp output. The line in Gamut's product literature that I loved was: "Life is a process of constant discovery and refinement. For this reason, we reserve the right to change without advance notice." Me too.
For example, I haven't really paid that much attention to Gamut, but the CD 3, DI 150, and L-7 just flat-out worked for me. Music was alive an filled with the little pleasures that make you smile, nod, tap your foot, or even boogie. Check Gamut out!

The Vivid & Gamut Rooms
Posted Tue Jun 6, 2006, 12:13 PM ET - By Jason Victor Serinus

Stereophile ShowThe South African Vivid Audio K1 loudspeakers ($20,000/pair) in the Musical Surroundings room—seen here behind Musical Surroundings’ Garth Leerer (right) and Stereophile’s Michael Fremer at the Sunday afternoon raffle—produced an impressively large, sit-up-and-listen soundstage. A similar case of a soundstage that dwarfed the speakers that produced it awaited in the Gamut room. The L-7 flagship speakers ($14,900/pair), paired with the Di150 180Wpc integrated amp ($9800) and brand new CD3 ($6000), produced an amazing sense of space and depth, as well as some mighty low bass extension. Learning that the system lacked a power conditioner and was powered by stock power cords and $300 Siltech silver cables only increased my admiration. As the audiophile press has affirmed for several years now, Gamut is on to something very, very good.

HE2006: Gamut Speakers and Amps - by Josh Ray

StereoPhile Show

Stereophile ShowGamut Audio went full hog with their speakers and components. A number of people were telling me I had to check out Gamut. Gamut? Out of Denmark, these guys have a background at the legendary driver maker Scan Speak. Naturally, they're using all Scan Speak drivers.
I walked in during an orchestral piece riddled with gunshots and, damn, if it didn't sound real. I mean, I live in LA so I know what gunshots sound like. The attack from those drivers was killer and the bass was powerful and full from those dual 7" drivers. Oh, and the music sounded great too. For me, definitely some of the best sound at the show so far.

Interestingly, Gamut is going with a different sort of retail model. While each individual component is made to work independently, Gamut really wants to champion a complete package system. They may be too trend-setting for high end audio, but they want complete system auditions and I agree completely. We need to see more "one box" solutions. If I wanted an all-star system without having to deal with component matching or tweaking, this would be it.

Gamut DI 150 integrated goes for $9800, the CD3 is $6000 and the L-7 speakers are $15k. Big speaker pic next page.
