We are going to vistit the High End show in Munich


27-12-2016

It is time to make room for new products, so have a look at our sale-page


13-42-2016

We have received new stock of the Alps "Blue Velvet" 100K volume control.

 

24-03-2016

The Humble Homemade Hifi website has published a review on the Duelund Silver Bypass capacitor.

Sound: In one word: amazing!.
I thought I knew how they sounded but with the bypass capacitor in the network the bells were so realistic, it scared me :-)

Verdict: add about 2 points to whatever capacitor you are bypassing



21-03-2016

We have received new stock of the KLE innovations phono/rca plugs.

KLEI has introduced new modules which feature solid pure silver contacts for ground pin and centre pin.
The KLEI Pure Harmony and the KLEI Absolute Harmony. The KLEI Absolute Harmony uses an even higher quality silver.
These 2 models are making the right choice not easier. To make live easier we offer (for a limited time) the KLEI Absolute Harmony for about the same price as the KLEI Pure Harmony.



24-02-2016

We are very proud to present the Duelund CAST Mylar power supply capacitors.



22-02-2016

We have added Neotech hook-up wire SOCP-12 and SOCP-20 (PVC coated) and SOCT-18 (teflon coated) to our stock.
Neotech UP-OCC IEC and SCHUKO mains connectors are back in stock



30-03-2015

We have added some Hammond power transformers, filament transformers and Hammond chokes.
A
nd we started to stock the really nice Hammond Walnut Chassis



23-03-2015

Completely forgot to add these to our website. We have been using these in our modifications and they really work very good.
The Bybee Lab Music Rails. The Bybee name might give you the wrong idea. They don't use or work like the Bybee Quantum purifiers.
The Music Rails use an active circuit to remove much of the noise that can still be found on (regulated) power supplies.

We will receive a new item from Jack Bybee, the Bybee Quantum Signal Enhancer. This is a device that can be used without the need for soldering.




12-02-2015

We have extended our stock of Neotech UP-OCC wire



09-02-2015

We have been able to buy a few Tamura PC-3003W (230VAC primary) power transformers.
Quantities are very limited. Tamura will only make these when you order 20 pcs or more (and that is not likely to happen again)




05-02-2015

We now stock a small selection of the Elna Silmic II capacitors and we can supply the Noguchi Finemet (output) transformers.



02-05-2015

10-08-2014

Finally found the time to make the Lundahl Transformers Pricelist



10-08-2014

DUELUND has recently launched a new capacitor product. the Duelund RS series.
This line will replace the original Virtual Stacked Foil (VSF) series. A copper foil hybrid design, using the dielectric of the original VSF, but in the same form factor as the CAST-PIO Series, taking advantage of their non-resonant mechanical stability. These caps approach the CAST-PIO performance is a number of ways, but at a far lower retail price (nearly half).

We will stock the Duelund RS DC (400Vdc) copper series.
The (loudspeaker) 100Vdc versions can be ordered, but there will be a long lead time.

Duelund price list (pdf-file)

Tamura has introduced the F-900/A-800 series of transformers (pdf-file).
Hashimoto has introduced the Hashimoto A-305 interstage (pdf-file) which is a perfect replacement for the Tango NC-20F which is not available anymore.




20-06-2013

Tango/ISO informed us that they will close their doors on September 20th.. They cannot continue their business in the future.
They received in the meantime so many last minute orders, that they don't accept any new orders.

It is really sad that more and more really good quality products (think Black Gate, Riken, Elna high voltage capacitors, Shinkoh etc) are forced to stop their production.

New Bastanis loudspeaker. Read the review





Bastanis Atlas Loudspeakers

Climbing The Mountain And Reaching The Summit.


Bastanis Atlas loudspeakers are quite simply the best I have heard.

My statement above is related to my personal preferences. There are some who do not care for soundstage and imaging. I do. I crave atmosphere and emotion. Without question Atlas deliver a tremendous 3-D image both with CD and vinyl. Add to this bass that can be delicate or truly thunderous, as required, you also have a totally believable mid-range plus a top-end of crystal clarity. Dynamics can scare you half-to-death. These loudspeakers will suit those who value SET amplifiers – BIGTIME! They have an advantage over horns of having a total absence of "horn shout".



30-05-2007

New parts: Jensen 4-pole electrolytic capacitors
 


25-05-2007

New parts: Eichmann Phonopods (RCA sockets), solid Ebony knobs, Jupiter cotton insulated hook-up wire,
and Teflon tube sockets

We have lots of new parts, but we just don't have the time to update the site.

We have added some TDO resistors (Tokyo Den-On) 20 Watt cathode resistors, TKD (Tokyo Ko-On Denpa) volume controls (as used by Kondo) and Tocos (Tokyo Cosmos Electric Co. LTD) 100R hum bucking potentiometer

We also received new Oyaide SHUKO, IEC connectors and bulk powercords, and some nice ebony wooden knobs to go with our attenuators



06-09-2006

Added some knobs and an extension kit for volume controls or selector switches
 


14-08-2006
We have become distributor/dealer for the Kiwame resistors
 


17-05-2006
We now can supply Tango / ISO 230V power transformers


10-05-2006
The Bastanis Prometheus MKII has been reviewed on 6moons.com and received an 6moons.com Blue moon award



28-04-2006
We have become distributor/dealer for the Scheu-Analog turntables, tone arms and cartridges.


30-03-2006
We have been able to reduce the prices for all the Bybee Quantum Purifiers.
After some initial hesitations more and more customers start to use these devices. In all this time we never received a negative comment on the purifiers, only very positive ones. So we put in a big order and got a very good deal from the manufacturer.


01-03-2006
Added EAT Cool Dampers to our product range.


15-02-2006

5-11-2005
Added an English and Dutch (Nederlands) review of Absorb-GEL™ Vacuum Tube Damper.


24-09-2005
Added some reviews of our already famous attenuator.


30-08-2005
We have added a new product to our shop: the AudioNemesis DC-1 d/a converter.

In our opinion this d/a converter is the new reference in its price category.

We compared it to some very expensive other d/a converters. (Audio Note and Accuphase) The AudioNemesis does sound different but on a musical level it reached the same high level.
Compared to more normal priced CD-players the AudioNemesis adds colour and energy to the sound and reduces the "the digital "stress". In short: The AudioNemesis DC-1 is all about music.



09-08-2005
Acoustic-Dimension has the pleasure to announce a European Premiere!

ALLNIC AUDIO has developed and patented one of the most innovative products of this year, the Absorb-GEL™ Vacuum Tube Damper.

This product will be also available through selected retailers.



29-06-2005
We get many questions about Tamura Transformers. Tamura has a long history in making probably the best audio transformers that are available today. click here for the Tamura's Pricelist.


01-02-2005
We are very excited about our new "Kit" section. We have added some remarkable amplifier kits.

At this moment we are still working on the site, so expect a few pages which "are under construction"

The last few months we have been listening to the DIY Prometheus loudspeakers and we are convinced that this loudspeaker could be the end of a long search.
The Prometheus is an open baffle design with a non-filtered fullrange driver which covers the 100Hz - 10kHz range. The very low frequencies are covered by two active subwoofers. This together gives a loudspeaker with an 100dB efficiency and an easy 8 Ohm impedance. The Prometheus is a speaker that can play with grace and at the same time with absolute authority

In the january- issue of Stereophile (USA, biggest hifi- magazine worldwide) there is a short report of the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest and the Prometheus were named for the best sound at the show!!
Imagine that from a magazine that does not ever review DIY products.



20-11-2004
Lots of changes and additions to the Site.
Page added with available brands and products. We have become dealer for Eichmann (bullet) plugs, Furutech products and Tentlabs products.

Some of these new products really impressed us. (following a very short list of some of our impressions)

Try the new WBT nextgen socket as in- and output socket between your transport and DAC, the improvement will be greater as adding a new digital interlink.



29-10-2004
added pictures of Azuma tube sockets and completed the WBT page.


01-09-2004
added Siemens D3a NOS tubes to our shop


30-08-2004
We have become dealer of the complete WBT connector range.
