The hotly anticipated Allnic Speaker cables arrive in the UK. Introducing the mid range ZL-3000 with some very unique manufacturing specs. Kang Su Park never follows the crowd ! I gather the welding machine he is using to make these wires can only be operated at night as it takes down half the grid at Gangam. We will be trialling these cables ourselves and also beta testing them with various customers who run full Allnic systems. Stand by for prices and a full launch.
The N10 replaces the recently discontinued S10 in the Aurender range. Featuring a vast array of digital outputs, 4TB internal storage, 240gb solid state cache for playback and the first and only device to support on-the-fly precision DSD to PCM conversion by FPGA, the N10 sits just below the flagship W20 which was recently compared favourably by Chris Thomas to the £25,000 DCS Vivaldi transport.

A very nice review in Hifi plus magazine for the little Allnic AUT-2000 step up transformer. A big upgrade for most phonostages.

Product details here.

This fabulous review from PartimeAudiophile deserves special mention. A wonderfully detailed exposition on all things Vitus and a lucid insight into the entry RD100 Dac/preamp and RS100 power amp models. Well written and well worth your time.
The £1995 Phoenix S moving coil has been given a great review by Jason kennedy in HiFi + "I get it now. I understand why Transfiguration does not need a website. When you make cartridges that are this good, the world will come to your door."
Newly landed at LOTUS, Rick Schultz's new low resistance version of the HighFidelity Cables CT1-Ultimate speaker cables. Rick performs substantial burn in of these at the factory and so straight out of the box here they sounded fabulous. Now a very big jump up from the Enhanced version with incredible clarity, width, depth and naturalness, these are supremely low distortion. If you are looking for the ultimate in transparency, neutrality and naturalness then look no further.
