A Space Odyssey
We are proud to present once again on demo the Michell Gyrodec, arguably the most iconic of all hifi components. Its form and function rivals anything from the Eames stable, its appearance undeniably mid-century modern. Its creator, the late J.A. Michell, founded an engineering company that provided services to the film industry in the 60s, including the design of space crafts for Stanley Kubrick's 2001 - A Space Odyssey. No doubt this was why the GyroDec appeared in "A Clockwork Orange" by Kubrick.

So, now that's out of the way, what the hell is this chunky block of aluminium all about? Well, the Hugo is a DAC. And a headphone amp. A portable dac/headphone amp. Ok, so that's been done before, but never approaching this level of quality.

Some of our work on one of Victoria's premier residences was recently featured on Better Homes and Gardens. The iconic pole house in Fairhaven is a landmark for anyone who has ever driven along the Great Ocean Road, with the distinct building soaring over the seascape. The adjoining residence was also highlighted, with our Cinema installation being singled out as one of the buildings most impressive features. We also specified and provided the comprehensive home automation systems for the residence fulfilling a unique brief by the owners.
