It's been some time since Franck Tchang of Acoustic System International (ASI) has looked this excited.
Tchang, who is better known around these parts as the "The Resonator Man," compliments of his Acoustic Resonators tuning devices is quite a busy man of late. It was only shortly after the success of the Acoustic Resonators before Tchang released his ASI Liveline series of cables. And it wasn't long after that before he introduced his ASI model Tango loudspeaker (that I along with many others in the press have grown quite fond of). Most recently, Tchang released a new line ofhigh-end electronics under the ASI umbrella too. It was at the Munich High End 2011 show where, I first spotted Tchang excitedly (as expected) putting on an excellent demo. This time, however he wanted my attention on the near-unlimited power of these two huge mono amplifiers. It was only after listening for an extended period did I come to realize these in fact were his ASI Grand Monoblocks in prototype form. They produced a sense of control and excellent transients out of his (then prototype) loudspeakers which immediately had my attention. Tchang has been using Karan Acoustics electronics personally for some years and he's long considered them as amongst the best of the best. Coincidently, I too must concur with Tchang's sentiments as I have used Karan electronics as my reference for nearly a decade now. Tchang, who built a special relationship with Karan over the years, sole aspiration was to create a benchmark of components for ASI. Tchang believes Karan (the man) is the perfect designer for ASI electronics. Tchang wanted Karan to design thisnew line without boundaries or compromise. When Tchang was finally invited to Karan's home in Novi Sad, Serbia for a final listen he knew his dream had been realized. Fortunately, Tchang assured me the burn-in was done prior to shipping for review. My hat's off to Franck Tchang and Milan Karan for creation of these new masterpieces.
As a bonus, Acoustic System's Frank Tchang stopped by to demonstrate his Resonators: tiny metal bowls that sit atop little wood blocks.
On my recent trip to Paris back in the fall of '04, Franck Tchang, designer of the Acoustic Resonators asked Key Kim and I if we were interested in listening to a system that was truly "price no object" and of course you know what the answer to that question was...Hell Yeah!
Lastly, Acoustic System's Franck Tchang, blessed the room with his Acoustic Resonator treatment.
Franck Tchang of Acoustic System Int. -- mister resonator man to most -- promptly bought one for himself when he heard mine on his Tango R speakers in Casa Chardonne.
Franck's resident amplifier reference was a high-power Karan Acoustics Class A tank. Franck tells me that more than one visitor to his studio has wanted to borrow the F5 and our writers Marja & Henk heard it there and walked away equally stunned (their reference amp is a modified Audio Note UK Meishu 300B machine).
