NEW FROM TRI-CELL

Montreal Audiofest 2024

Hearken Audio has become a favorite Canadian retailer for me over the past year or so. They typically present a very fine room comprised of unusual, lesser-known, very high-quality brands. I was so excited to see a fully operational Reed Muse 1C turntable that I completely forgot to take photos of anything else in the room. Tri-Cell Enterprises is another retailer in Ontario that has been around a long time and teamed up with Hearken to present this outstanding room. The Reed 1C is a friction drive turntable shown in Karelian Birch plywood ($22.6k) with a Reed 3p Macassar Ebony 10.5 tonearm ($7210) fitted with an Etsuro Urushi Gold cartridge ($17.5k), their flagship model. The large, funky-looking record weight was from I/K Audio ($2500).

Cardas Authenticity
Genuine Cardas Cables Packaging
and Authenticity info

Lately we have been asked by a number of people how to differentiate New Cardas cables from older Cardas or from unknown provenance.......

Lately we have been asked by a number of people how to differentiate New Cardas cables from older Cardas or from unknown provenance.
We also like to bring forward the awareness of counterfeit cables in the market. Some closely match the appearance of genuine cables and the only way to guarantee their authenticity is to have Cardas visually inspect the cable. This is only possible if you already bought the cable.

And to bring to your attention some of the packaging and security changes implemented recently. The earlier Cardas packaging was a simple transparent plastic bag with a Numbered Certificate of Authenticity insert. Not to mention that the inserts used were different over the last many years.

ANALOG BRIDGE USES & SONIC BENEFITS:
1. Between digital or analog source(s) and preamp. – Any digital that is deemed thin, bright or lacking depth and body will definitely benefit. Even digital that is not bright, but lacks body, will benefit from tube body and weight.
2. Between preamp and amp. – An all SS system that customer feels is lacking in body, depth or warmth. Perhaps system is very resolving but uninvolving. The Analog Bridge will bring 3-dimensionality and broad soundstage to the system.
3. Between source and amp – A simple system one or two sources (with integral volume control) and amp is ideal. It adds the sonic benefits of tubes while keeping the system simple. Very low output impedance means it will drive ANY amp.
4. Between passive attenuator and amp. – Same as above, source(s) - passive pre/attenuator – Analog Bridge – Amp. Analog bridge provides necessary buffering not provided by a passive.

Congratulation to the Part-Time Audiophile 2022 Best Value Winner

Lab12 Integre4 Integrated Amp/b>.

The 2022 Best Value of the Year Award from Part-Time Audiophile slowly evolved into a different sort of honor this year, thanks to many impassioned late-night discussions in the PTA War Room. Our biggest discovery during this lengthy process was this: value does not mean the same thing as budget.

For instance, two of the five nominees for the 2022 Best Value Award are tubed integrated amplifiers. One of them costs $1,199 USD and the other is $4,450. I can make an argument for either one, frankly, because the more costly amp makes a bigger play for high-end audio sound. Giant killers, as it turns out, can still be 6-foot-5, 260 pounds, and brandishing a Hattori Hanzo sword..

Mads Interview
"Meet Your Maker", Interview with Mads Klifoth of Audiovector

Lately we have been asked by a number of people how to differentiate New Cardas cables from older Cardas or from unknown provenance.......

Audiovector’s CEO Mads Klifoth, talks about the company moving from its home in the centre of Copenhagen to a larger premises just on the outskirts of the Danish capital. The new factory and office complex, in the suburb of Skovlunde is considerably larger and lighter than the company’s old dockside base, but such is the continued success of Audiovector, it’s already close to capacity. Mads spoke candidly about the changes, the father to son handover of the company and more….

The power amplifier is based on the Titania tube amplifier. It combines all its advantages. Openness, full bodied sound, yet with a remarkably neutral tone. Two modes: stereo and mono makes it very powerful and versatile.
