New review: Synergistic's Vibratron SX reviewed by Enjoy the

Synergistic Research Vibratron SX
Rick Becker of Enjoy the writes:
"...while 'Vibratron' relates to the physical action of the device, the visual design reminds me of the Space Needle in Seattle, WA. Performance-wise, it is a space needle that injects three-dimensional space from the stereo recording into the area between your listening chair and the speakers, and beyond into the soundscape we all cherish. It reduces subliminal awareness of the listening room and enhances the awareness of the musical performance and its venue. Call it a paradigm shift if you will... Personally, I like the Vibratron a lot; it is a paradigm shifter that puts me right in the cathedral with organ music and right in the mud at Woodstock. Yes, I could live without it, but why would I want to? It is a supreme indulgence..."

Aurorasound VIDA Mk.II - Best of 2023 Award by AudioKeyReviews
Winner of Best of 2023 Award.

Kermit Heartsong of AudioKeyReviews writes:

"...the Aurorasound VIDA MK.II phono stage is simply a wonderful piece of playback gear. It had no flaw that I could put my finger on, sonically or ergonomically. It looks amazing, is built with precision and craft, and has more features than most vinyl enthusiasts are accustomed to. Clearly, founder and designer Shinobu Karaki's 30 years of experience with Sony and Texas Instruments has paid off in his circuit designs. The real wood enclosure, which can also be ordered in black, is the icing on the cake..."

"...the Aurorasound HFSA-01 offers a pure musical performance, and just as importantly, it delivers music with a purity of purpose. It’s not a solution to a problem but rather a realization of a particular vision of musical enjoyment. For analog enthusiasts willing to work within the surprisingly minor constraints of its power rating, the Aurorasound HFSA-01 should bring a lifetime of musical engagement. A passionate recommendation and an Audiophilia star are in order..."

New award: Aurorasound's HFSA-01 receives the "HiFi-Bargain Award" from Twittering Machines

Aurorasound HFSA-01 receives the HiFi-Bargain Award from Twittering Machines

Michael Lavorgna of Twittering Machines wrote:
"...I bet you saw this coming. The HFSA-01 is the second product from Yokohama, Japan’s Aurorasound to hit the Favorite/HiFi Bargain double header, joining the Aurorasound VIDA Prima Phono Stage. One of the lovely tricks up the HFSA-01’s sleeve is the inclusion of EQ Curves to properly play back 78s, a rather rare feature in a sub $4k integrated amp. Of greater importance is the HFSA-01 is a killer integrated amp with a killer MM phono stage, using 2 pair of EL84s run in ultra-linear push-pull mode for 14 Watts of output power per channel. Enough to drive the DeVore O/96 to Barn-filling heights. And you get all of this wood-trimmed goodness for $3,680 making the Aurorasound HFSA-01 Vacuum Tube Integrated Amplifier a genuine HiFi Bargain..."

New arrival: Synergistics' new top-of-the-line power cable - The SRX XL

Synergistic Research SRX XL Power CableBRAND NEW - JUST ARRIVED
SR took their SRX power cable and added 2 additional pure sliver 14 gauge high current geometries and 2 additional pure sliver AirString geometries to make the highest gauge power cord entirely over the top where high conductive pure silver conductors in an air dielectric are concerned. Not surprisingly, this took the SRX’s industry-leading dynamics to a whole new level. It also improved nearly all aspects of its performance, including sound staging, lower noise floor, and increased high-frequency extension with added smoothness for a high-current power cord like no other. MSRP is $13,000 ea.

New follow-up review: Aurorasound HFSA-01's EQ Curves in DeVore's Monkeyhaus

Aurorasound HFSA-01's EQ Curves tested

Michael Lavorgna of Twittering Machines writes:

"...I am even more impressed by the lovely Aurorasound HFSA-01 now that I’ve heard what it can do with 78s and it drove the DeVore O/baby like a dream. A big, beautiful joyous dream that kept me enraptured and happy every moment music played. All told, at $3,680, the HFSA-01 is a screamin’ bargain, and I do mean screamin’, and if you’ve ever had a hankerin’ to play some 78s, or if you already have a stash but no way to properly play ‘em, I can’t think of any other integrated amplifying option anywhere near the Aurorasound’s price..."
