The TRV-DAC1.0SE has also three S/PDIF inputs plus TosLink optical for all sources imaginable. Uniquely, it features both tube and solid state analogue outputs, selectable by remote control but I would imagine that most users would stick with the tube output as that is the one that really brings out the musicality of this DAC.
Users can also use the remote to select between digital inputs, sampling frequency and digital signal phase for really great flexibility. It even features a variable headphone output for all those who are into headphones.
The TRV-DAC1.0SE is on demo right now, so feel free to drop and audition the unit if you’re in the market for a good quality but affordable USB DAC for your computer audio needs!

Audience Now Shipping The ONE Single-Driver Loudspeaker|
28 March 2013
"The ONE represents our efforts to produce the finest small speaker possible," said John McDonald, president of Audience. "It employs Audience's exclusive A3-S full-range crossover-less driver to deliver pure, expansive sound with dynamics and soundstaging capabilities that might not seem possible from such a small speaker - until you hear it."
The ONE incorporates the same exclusive A3-S full-range crossover-less driver as every Audience ClairAudient loudspeaker, along with a purpose-designed passive radiator. The A3-S is a full-range high power, 12mm excursion, ultra-low distortion transducer. It eliminates the need for a separate woofer, midrange driver, tweeter and crossover network - and their inherent sonic compromises of sonically dissimilar drivers, phase distortions, loss of resolution and transient response degradation.
Available in a choice of stunning high-gloss finishes including black, red, white and blue with black grilles that attach magnetically to the speaker, The ONE is a true point source loudspeaker that offers a seamless, absolutely coherent sonic presentation at all frequencies with extraordinarily precise imaging and remarkable soundstage realism. "Even off axis, The ONE is uncanny in its ability to sound more like live music and less like what we're accustomed to hearing from a stereo system," McDonald noted.
Because it has no crossover, The ONE is direct-coupled to the amplifier it's connected to, enabling the full damping factor of the amplifier to be directly applied to the A3-S driver's voice coil. By allowing the amplifier, speaker cable and driver to act as a single coherent system, a level of control over the driver is achieved that is not possible with any speaker with a crossover.
The ClairAudient The ONE employs the highest-quality parts throughout including low-mass binding posts and Audience Ohno (monocrystal) Auric internal wiring. The ONE presents a benign load to an amplifier, resulting in compatibility with a wide range of tube and solid-state amplifiers. The ONE is flat from 50Hz to 20kHz in-room response when placed on a desk or near a wall; a subwoofer is required for full-frequency response when The ONE is situated away from a wall.
The Audience ClairAudient The ONE loudspeaker is now available at a suggested retail price of SGD 1330.00 per pair in black and blue finishes; white and red finishes will be available soon (to be announced).
Available accessories include desktop stands at SGD 100.00 per pair. All Audience products are manufactured in the United States of America.
Avantgarde UNO Fino at the Korean Hifi Show|
15 March 2013
It was reported that the Uno Fino performed well beyond expectations with an outstanding performance that was very much appreciated and favoured by all who visited room 310 at the SIAS 2013.
The Avantgarde Acoustic room was selected as one of the best sounding rooms by many journalists and bloggers and received a fantastic response from the show audience.
With its slim compact design, the Uno Fino performed like a beautiful sports car, with amazing speed, dynamics and agility in the presentation of the musical material, and the new twin 8 inch bass drivers held the bass response in total control and blended seamlessly with the midrange and high frequency drivers.
Finally, a true full-range high sensitivity horn speaker that can be accommodated in any normal sized room without compromising on the traditional attributes that Avantgarde Acoustic are world-famous for!
Stay tuned for the Fino’s debut in our showroom in Singapore very soon!
New Avantgarde Model – UNO Fino|
21 February 2013
Utilizing the same midrange and high frequency drivers as the standard UNO G2, the Fino boasts a high sensitivity of 104db into 8 ohms. It even has the same 250 watt dedicated amplifier that drives the woofers!
So what is the difference between the Fino and the G2? Well, mainly the size as you will see when you view them in our showroom. They are both shorter and narrower than the standard UNOs and that helps a great deal when placing them in space challenged situations! Towards that goal, Avantgarde has employed a brand new (and smaller) bass driver to achieve a slim and more elegant profile and housed in an attractive wooden cabinet that hopefully will go a long way towards pleasing the other half, if you know what I mean! Most owners will not need the original twin 8” woofers if they only have a small listening room anyway.
So basically what you will get is a high sensitivity and very easy-to-drive speaker that shares almost all of the Uno G2 qualities in a smaller and more manageable package that plays well in small rooms without any of the usual bass boom problems. Good news? The other piece of good news is that this is also Avantgarde Acoustics’ most affordable horn speaker yet! Retail prices have not been finalized yet, but it will definitely be lower than the UNO G2.
Shown here are some renderings of the speaker in a few of the wide range of colours that you can choose from. We will provide more technical details as they become available.
