Unfortunately when I visited the room there was no technical assistance and the set-up was not planned for auditions. In fact, changing a CD was a very painful task due to the placement of the top loading Sony SCD-1 Player in a middle and narrow shelf of the rack. When I asked the lady manning the stand that I wanted to listen to my own CDs, she first said no, but upon my insistence she said that I could do it if I knew how to. When I attempted to open Sony ís top drawer I understood what she had meant, but I still managed.

My insistence and curiosity was mainly due to the NUVISTA M3 Integrated power amp that is using Nuvistors (very tiny valves). The speakers were B&W 803 Nautilus.

I heard a very detailed and natural sound. Tonal balance was slightly on the lean side.
