New review: Lyric's Ti100 Mk.II on the front page of the new FIDELITY magazine

Lyric Audio's Ti100 Mk.II on the front page of the new Fidelity magazineLyric Audio's Ti100 Mk.II Class-A integrated single-ended tube amplifier  made it all the way to the front page of the German magazine FIDELITY (Issue No.40, October 2018). 

Jochen Reinecke writes: "...the jaw drops after a few bars, no matter whether Jimmy Smith's Hammond organ grunts in the low registers, roars and bubbles like lava - or whether the music gnaws aggressively on the drumhead in the solos... no matter whether the drums consist of only one fine ride cymbal pinging or juicy rim shots and massive bass drum booms... How do you describe such a thing? Well, what is delivered here is simply 'alive'. Intoxicating, enthralling, contagiously happy... The room is literally real enough to walk into, the music completely detaches itself from the speakers and stands shimmering and sparkling in the room. And one almost feels the presence of the musicians right there in the listening room. Spooky, but nice! What could the heart desire more?"

New review: Valvet E2 reviewed by the Stereoplay magazine

Valvet E2 single-ended solid-state amplifierRoland Kraft of the Stereoplay print magazine wrote (Oct. 2018):
"...a good single-ended Class-A design conveys music with a charm that other end-stage concepts seldom or never reach... the Valvet plays crystal clear transparently, always agile and dynamic. However, its  true strength lies in its large 3-D sound stage which reaches far beyond the speakers, nearing that of a reference system. What the E2 is doing here borders on sorcery...  It’s understandable that using efficient speakers makes life easier for the single-ended amps: every decibel more per watt is converted into pure listening joy. In Conclusion: A short, purist signal path and single-ended design aren’t relics of bygone times, but remain as beneficial for the sound as ever. Therefore: huge compliments!"

New review: Synergistic Research Active Ground Block SE

Synergistic Research Active Ground Block SE review by The StereoTimes
Mike Girardi, The StereoTimes (Sept. 2018):

" of the most significant effect results of reducing the noise floor and signal compression via the SR AGB SE allowed me to listen to music at much lower volumes without any loss of detail, silence between notes, and dynamics. Component changes alone have never resulted in the type of improvement the SR AGB SE brings to the table. With the SR AGB SE installed I was more engaged with the music and not left searching for it. The SR AGB SE is an integral part of my reviewing system. Highly recommended."

New arrival: VALVET A4 Mk.II Class-A mono-blocks hand crafted in Germany

Valvet A4 Mk.II Class-A mono-blocksJust in from Hamburg - in the north of Germany, Knut Cornil's new A4 Mk.II Class A mono-blocks.

US retail price is $7890 /pair.

New review: Synergistic's PowerCell 12 UEF, Grounding Block and Black UEF Duplex tested by Part-Time Audiophile

Synergistic Research PowerCell, Grounding Block and Black UEF Duplex review on Part-Time AudiophilePart-Time Audiophile on PowerCell 12 UEF SE, Grounding Block and Black UEF Duplex (Sep. 2018):

"...the resulting impact of these three products is more than the sum of the parts. By that, I mean that with these devices it’s more of a '1+1+1=5" effect. The noise floor drops significantly, and with that, I feel like I am hearing everything my system was designed to perform... it allows the music to just flow in a more natural manner and for more musical detail, both macrodynamic and micro-dynamic in nature, to be heard.  It elevates whatever electronics and speakers you have..."

New Review: Synergistic's Atmosphere X Euphoria cable series on PFO

Synergistic Research Atmosphere X Euphoria cables
Robert S. Youman of Positive Feedback wrote:
"...the combination of Atmosphere X Euphoria (Level 3) interconnects and speaker cables and Atmosphere UEF (Level 3) power cables have established a new bench mark of excellence for my system. Visitors to my listening room noticed the change immediately. Even non-audiophiles who never seemed all that impressed before became quite attentive if not mesmerized..."
