February 9th 2017 - Superb compact components from Simaudio

Simaudio's Moon Neo 230HAD Headphone Amplfier/Dac with Preamp continues to get two thumbs up in media reviews and is enjoying strong sales. Read the reviews and awards here.

Two new components - streamer and phonostage - have just been added to the compact range.

Simaudio's new MiND streamer significantly raises performance over the highly regarded 180 MiND streamer adding Bluetooth, remote control and high spec internal power supply. Streaming services include TIDAL, Deezer, Qobuz, VTuner and Tunein. TIDAL does indeed deliver CD quality sound with MiND streaming and even radio stations streaming in low bit rates are quite listenable.

A low-noise power supply and other component upgrades have improved the sound of the new 310LP phono stage improving fidelity across all frequencies - deeper bass, more open mid-range and airy treble - all over a blacker background.

October 26th 2016 - Wireworld's CAT8 ethernet cable

Four reasons this is an essential cable for ethernet streaming source components:

  1. Metal plug with durable metal retainer
  2. Noticeable sound improvement
  3. Very fair price for sound improvement
  4. Metal retainer - no more broken plastic prongs! (we all have those)

Wireworld can be justifiably proud of their ground breaking "Tite Shield"™ technology (patent pending) which meets the requirements for the next generation of 40 Giga bits per second transmission speeds. Ethernet data transmission is more robust than USB (which limits cable lengths to 5m) but the cross-talk effect between conductors, which needed to be solved to achieve such high data rates, also affects data rates used in audio streaming. By eliminating the timing errors that introduce "skew", Wireworld's Starlight® Category 8 ethernet cable will enable even modest Streamers to better resolve the subtle sonic information that our ears use for the perception of separation and spatial details in a fully resolved sound stage. Highly recommended. $210 for 1m length. Wireworld Ethernet Cat8 cable

October 15th 2016 - LS50 Wireless

To celebrate 55 years KEF announces the imminent arrival of the LS50 Wireless speaker. A sophisticated design it combines 30 watt class A/B amplification driving the tweeter and 200 watt class D amplification driving the bass sections of the UniQ coaxial driver, four 24bit/192kHz DACs, switched mode power supplies and Digital Signal Processing (DSP) to preserve signal waveform and allow for loudpseaker positioning adjustment. The highly versatile selection of inputs - bluetooth, wireless, analog RCA, Toslink and asynchronous USB - means there's no problem getting music into these loudspeakers. There's a nifty control app and a subwoofer output for extra bass extension. The choice of three striking colors works suprisingly well with a number of decors. I have been expecting this development for some time but for only $2,200 KEF have surpassed my expectations for this type of product, and just like the LS50 continues to do, will set a very high bar for others to follow. Taking orders now - initial batch will sell through quickly. More details soon. KEF LS50 Wireless speakers
