After researching what Audio Consulting is doing the first thing I thought was bloody hell this is really different. Not a closer approach but a completely different approach. Highly impressive custom solutions. Check out these links.
The speakers caught my eye first. I mean what the hell are those! Well the product name is Rubanoide or Ribbon Like. I assumed they were inefficient beasties but no they are not. Check out these specs. They obviously need a bass module but hell man they have as well. Explore the speaker products on their website. Wow.

Their turntable is a sculptural work of art or at least to me it is.
The amplifiers and preamplifiers look fairly tame from the outside but on the inside it looks like something a genius mad scientist cooked up by listening to insane engineering voices in his head.
These are systems I think you just have to hear to believe. Would I like it? Who can tell but I can certainly endorse the spirit of audio adventure and creativity outside of the box they have embraced. Wow thanks for showing us something different.
