Click on image to read the full article ...The company that has become a byword for ultra-expensive ultra high end tube electronics has just introduced their first DAC, and it is proving to be a big hit with anyone open-minded enough to give it half a chance! This is not a run-of-the-mill DAC like all the others who boast of using the latest chips/technology and claiming to having all the features you can think of. Sure, it is all this but much, much more!

Silbatone initially sought to build the best DAC that their considerable resources would allow, hoping to come up with a product that would sonically ... [ » more ]

AESTHETIX - new product range
As the appointed distributor for AESTHETIX brand of fine audio products, we would like to introduce Rhea and IO (Tube Phono Stage), Atlas (Power Amplifier, Saturn Series). More products will be featured, watch this space.
Harmonic Resolution Systems Isolation Bases
The Harmonic Resolution Systems isolation bases are a primary element for significantly reducing structural borne noise in any audio or video component. The isolation bases (M3X, S1, R1) are designed to be used in a wide range of environments and provide excellent performance and maintenance free operation. All our isolation bases can be used directly on the floor, in an existing audio stand, on standard furniture, or in one of Harmonic Resolutions Systems high performance frame systems.
REED Tone arms (2A, 2P, 3Q)
We are proud to introduce three models of our Reed tonearm: Reed 3Q, Reed 2P and Reed 2A. Reed 3Q - the newest and most technically advanced tonearm model. Integrated laser helps to adjust VTA (precision +/- 0.1 mm) and azimuth (precision +/- 0.25 deg) very quickly and precisely. Reed 2P model is dedicated for audiophiles who do not trust to various setup rules and prefer to adjust their system based on their senses. Reed 2A is for customers, who have fixed audio setup and just want to listen for the perfect sound.
Miyajima Monaural Phono Cartridges
The Miyajima Laboratory monaural cartridges use their patented "vertical axis concentration method" to faithfully reproduce the musical information in the record grooves and thus achieve the distinctive quality of sound that Miyajima Laboratory is now famous for. In fact, Miyajima makes the bold claim that a mono LP has potential for better sound quality than a stereo LP!
Ortofon TA-110 Tone Arm
The TA-110 is given a precision machined slit in the middle of the aluminium tube. A piece of Ortofon's special vibration damping rubber is inserted into the slit. An armtube without slit and rubber damper is symmetrical in a vertical and lateral plane with respect to vibrations. The slit breaks this symmetry, and mounting the rubber insert gives the desired damping.
Miyajima Kansui Moving Coil Phono Cartridge
The lastest top model from Miyajima is another truly ground-breaking cartridge, then we believe Miyajima has more than achieved their aim and created another winner! Due to certain changes in the new design, the compliance of the cantilever is higher than the Shilabe and consequently the recommended tracking force is now lighter at 2.25g. More details here.
Leben RS-100 Line Pre-amplifier
Mr Taku Hyodo of Leben Hifi has created another new masterpiece. The new Leben RS-100 pre-amplifier, it is now in store now. The line-stage pre-amplifier has tube rectification and uses point to point wiring which is detailed and done with great. The line Amplifier Circuit consists of special selected Dual-Triode Tube 6CG7 (General Electric/USA) by SRPP system to improve high-frequency range of the sound, and can supply a strong signal of 52V to the power amplifier.
Introducing a new range of products from fo.Q
fo.Q’ is a material developed with the support of JST (Japan Science and Technology Agency).

What our customers said ...
The first set of Stillpoints purchased from you directly from Singapore through my friend were mounted below my Rega P3 turntable with Rega Exact cartridge and immediately raise the performance to a new level. Just when I thought the sound of my phono section could not get any better than that, I was shocked again after mounting the second set of Stillpoints to my newly bought EAR 834P tube phono preamp. The major improvement was the sound stage which has expand in size and the overall performance becomes three dimensional and providing more ambient feels especially when listening to good orchestra and live performance recording.
