Montreal Audiofest 2023 Wrap Up
Posted on April 10 2023
The Montreal Audiofest returned on March 24-26 and this was certainly an exciting year for Kevro as we showcased Monitor Audio's NEW Platinum 300 3G speakers for the first time in Quebec!
The speakers were joined by Rotel's multi-award winning Michi Series electronics, which included the Michi P5 Preamplifier and M8 Monoblocks. Our music sources included Rotel's DT-6000 DAC Transport (recent winner of the Stereophile Recommended Component Award - Click Here for more info) and the Roon Nucleus.
Other products that were showcased in our room included:
- NEW Monitor Audio Platinum 200 3G and Platinum 100 3G
- NEW Rotel S14 Integrated Network Streamer (Quebec debut!)
- Roksan Attessa Series
Our complete demo system, with the new Platinum 300 3G as the highlight, was a hit of the show as crowds of attendees flooded our room, eager to hear the flagship model of Monitor Audio's new Platinum 3G range.
Robert Schryer from Stereophile stopped by for a listen and said,
"Playing Tidal-streamed rock and vocal tracks, the Monitor Audio / Rotel system exhibited liquid momentum, extended dynamics, life-sized images, explicitly rendered vocals, a fascinating sense of the energy of notes being expulsed into the air, and a deep, layered soundstage."

Michael Fremer from The Absolute Sound also paid us a visit to capture our room setup on video! You can watch his full show report video here, and at 16:20 you can see footage from our room along with an interview between Michael and Sheldon Ginn, President of Kevro, who provides insight into the new Platinum Series 3G and breaks down some key features.
We would like to thank Psyphonyx Audio for providing all the great pictures from the show.
We would also like to thank everyone who visited our room at the show and we hope to see you again next year!
