Video: Synergistic Setups Episode 5 - Old Meets New

Synergistic pairings in HiFi audio aren't always predictable. Sometimes the price or the age of an item says little about whether it will work with modern or more expensive products. The key to knowing what will and won't work together lies in understanding what each component brings to the table.

That's the message in our latest Synergistic Setups video, which features a '90s-era lower-cost Conrad-Johnson amplifier and several modern pieces of gear and modern cabling. We chose each piece to complement the others to produce a quality of sound greater than the sum of its parts.

Watch the video below or visit our YouTube channel to see more from our Synergistic Setups series, including product spotlight videos and more. And don't forget to subscribe so you don't miss out on future video projects, including our upcoming "How-To" series.

If you've found a unique synergistic pairing of HiFi gear, we'd love to hear about it in the comments.
