New arrival: Nasotec LST X-GEN Preamp with LDR (Light Depended Resistors)

Nasotec LST X-GEN Preamp
After 15 years of work, the fruition of Nasotec's efforts has finally come to fruition with the introduction of the brand-new LST X-GEN LDR preamplifier. This preamplifier boasts various features, including an LDR-based optical volume control, an LDR-based switchless input board, the absence of amplification circuits, and ultra-low loss audio signal transmission, powered by 5V USB. 

The input board and volume control of the LST X-GEN offer an unprecedented level of signal purity by utilizing Light Dependent Resistors (LDRs) as the sole components, in contrast to typical circuits that introduce signal degradation and noise from various components along the signal path. North American MSRP is $4699.

New review & award: Aurorasound's HFSA-01 reviewed by the HiFi Pig Magazine

 5 Hearts Award from HiFi Pigs

Janine Elliot of the HiFi Pig Magazine writes:

"...this was a highly engrossing product giving me tons of fun per watt. Everything was harmonious with excellent clarity and a fair amount of dynamism for such a small output. Mids were sublime and top end was pin sharp and fast. The unimposing exterior hid within it a product of excellent calibre, and well worth exploring if you perhaps don’t want to annoy the whole street..."

New review: Aurorasound HFSA-01 EL84 integrated reviewed by Twittering Machines

Aurorasound HFSA-01 reviewed by Michael Lavorgna of Twittering MachinesMichael Lavorgna of Twittering Machines concluded:
"... I choose my hifi gear based on everything—looks, build quality, company, performance, features, and price. When it comes to an integrated amplifier, especially in the HFSA-01’s price range, I like having a MM phono stage built in and even a headphone amp for good measure and I put the HFSA-01’s EQ Curves in the crazy-amazingly nice to have category. Add in its retro good looks, rich fit and feel, price, and performance that left me wholly satisfied, opening as big a door onto musical enjoyment as I need, I cannot sing the Aurorasound HFSA-01’s praises loudly enough to anyone looking for an integrated amp that will feed your love of music with endless delight..."

Enjoy the Music Blue Note Award
Two new reviews of Synergistics's MASTER fuse are online.

John van Pole of
 "...SR's Master Fuse is a breakthrough product in accessories for high end audio systems. Dedicated music lovers owning a precious system and demanding dynamic, refined and realistic reproduction of their music, really shortchange themselves by not trying the Master Fuse. With a few Master Fuses, you get a lot more out of your system; it's that simple..."

Rick Becker of Enjoy the Music: "...the Master fuse is an Olympic jump in both price and sound quality over Synergistic Research's Purple fuse. Using a combination of generic and Purple fuses, my system achieved a huge and undeniable improvement with the addition of only a single Master fuse in a source component..."

Aurorasound HFSA-01 tested by The StereoTimes
We're happy to announce the first North American review for this exceptional amplifier has been published on The StereoTimes.

David Abramson wrote: 
"...he has created an op-amp/tube combo circuit that really does combine the best of solid-state low-end punch and drive with the (not at all overdone) punchy/spacey liquidity of EL84 tubes in the mids and highs, resulting in a lively, spacious, punchy sound which occurs within expansive spaces that suggest much pricier ‘purist’ tube or solid-state amps..."  

" hat is off, and my head is bowed to Shinobu Karaki-san. This one is special. If amplifiers were akin to people, the Aurorasound HFSA-01 might be Garland or Sinatra, born and bred to perform. In answer to your next question, yes, of course, I bought the review sample. I can’t let this one go..."

We're very glad to announce the first review and award for the exceptional Aurorasound HFSA-01 integrated EL84 amplifier.

Wojciech Pacula of wrote:
" plays with an open, clear sound of extraordinary energy. Its sound is not muddied or lifeless, as it happens with large devices. At the same time, it has enough authority at the bottom of the band to show the scale of events, the volume of instruments and the depth of the soundstage... A beautiful example of minimalism in the spirit of zen combined with modern solutions. From us, a saturated, full of red color award the RED FINGERPRINT..."
