NEW !!! – Allnic H5500 Phonostage

A year in isolation has thankfully produced some upsides. Allnic Audio have been busier than ever, not just fulfilling a singularly high excess of orders, but ramping up their R&D and spending extra time developing new products and improving existing ones. So 2021 will be a great year for Allnic lovers and especially for vinyl aficionados because we have no less than 3 new analogue treasures, the H5500 phono, H6500 phono and AUT-8000 Step Up to join a reworked T2000 30th Anniversary Integrated. The H5500 entry level phono preamp is all set to be the new biggest [...]

THE LOTUS PRODUCT GUIDE

Marking our 10 year anniversary, we have launched our unique product guide. Historically one could only browse products by looking separately through each Brand through our "PORTFOLIO" menu. The new product guide however discusses each area of the hifi system in turn and gives an overview of every choice here at Lotus and the differences and reasons for each choice. It also is prefaced by a short history of Lotus, our philosophy and how we belive a system works and should be built. This is all accessible from the "PRODUCT GUIDE" section in the top menus of the website. I [...]

The 2021 LOTUS DEMO ROOM

January 1st 2021. A new year, a whole new era for Lotus. As part of our 10 year anniversary, I am very excited to formally launch our brand new bespoke demonstration room. It has been a long wait and an awful lot of work and there are still a few finishing touches to finalise but right at the turn of the year, we are now fully operational and ready to invite customers for in-store demos. Building works began in September 2020 with a 2 month project that saw the original demo room extended out to the [...]

Lotus 10th Anniversary – LOTUS and ROCKPORT

Finding a third Loudspeaker to retail alongside Tidal Audio and Avalon Acoustics is no easy feat. In fact, so difficult is the task of designing a truly linear, neutral and natural transducer that I had almost given up on the idea, until that is, I opened up dialogue with Rockport Technologies early in 2020 at the start of the pandemic. As a longstanding admirer I approached them uninvited and as it happened my timing couldn’t have been better because they had been recently pondering on perhaps taking a fresh look at their position in the UK marketplace and [...]

REVIEWS for the VIMBERG AMEA

I've not really written too much about the Vimberg Amea but that wasn't really out of choice. Undercover of the pandemic in 2020 this wonderful standmount from the Tidal factory has been making some very serious impressions with Lotus customers. Like the Mino it is supremely natural and linear and just sounds so right. It's a huge sound as well, don't think you are limiting any single parameter because you are choosing a standmount. I wanted to present few new of glowing reviews, they tell you about the product better than I could. At almost the same price [...]

BRINKMANN BONANZA

The famed Brinkmann "Hewn from Granite" build quality (or perhaps more literally 'Sat on Granite") is mirrored very convincingly in the company's stability, commercial image and general trustworthiness. Some hifi brands are side curiosities or second or third businesses. Some brands are pure moneyspinning ventures, lots of carbon fibre and gold but a veritable dogs dinner when you take off the lid. And a few brands are run by fairly impossible people; personalities or politics that have evolved to a point where you simply could not even begin to attempt to run a reputable shop around such a [...]
