  • Dared LP1

    We absolutely love this little phono here at CAV. The key to its class beating performance is the large external power supply which is separate from the main unit. With the ability to tube roll youre own choice of tube to suit youre tastes accordingly makes this little phono a real winner.

  • Rotel RC-1590 preamplifier

    When the Rotel engineers in the Zuhai factory were asked to design a new top of the range pre amplifier they were given carte blanche to do whatever they liked to make it a reference product.

    So they ended up with this massively specified twin transformer fully isolated ultra low noise and balanced clean sheet design. The only thing missing is the commensurate price point, at $2699 list this is a bargain.

  • Cyrus Dac XP Signature

    Cyrus DAC X+ Open and musical. An amazing DAC & Pre Amp in it's price range, offering maximum detail without fatigue. I borrowed this gem for a few days connected it to my Leema, Sonus Faber system and fell in love all over again. Like all of the best Cyrus gear, adding the optional PSX-R will result in significant improvment, more than justifying its cost. Learn More

  • Rotel 1590 Pre and Power Amplifier ..The Hulk in an Iron Mask

    In the end amplification is about electronics and physics ... the amplifier is the engine that drives your loudspeakers. It needs to make real amperage into a real reactive resistive load to proffer control over the electric motor that is a drive unit in the speaker and do so with the delicacy of modulation required to fulfill the demands of the musical signal so as to be realistically iterated to the listener.

    It dosn't matter how many watts the marketing department puts on the front panel of that colourfully boxed Surround Receiver, it is still going to sound rubbish when  music is actually played through it ...

    This Rotel combination weighs as much as a good 1000cc plus motorcycle engine, and has a similiar aim of power and control. 

    Unlike the internal combustion engine this will last a generation or two and is unlikely to require any maintanance.

  • PS Audio DirectStream DAC

    We're huge fans of the digital magic that the folks over at PS Audio weave. From the first moment we heard the Perfect Wave, we knew there was some black magic under the bonnet. Now with the DirectStream, PS Audio have taken it to another level, producing one of the most fluent music communicators we've heard in quite some time.

  • PS Audio BHK Signature Preamplifier

    This made an immediate and frankly stunning effect when I added it to the system pictured. Before we had been running the PS Audio Transport, DAC, and power amplifier together as a minimalist high powered high current set of kit readily able to drive the highly transparent Monitor Audio Platinum II loudspeakers. Adding the BHK Signature Preamp bought the system to life. The music leapt holographically into the room and was just a consuming experience. Whereas before it had been good, but somehow unmoving, now one was just swept up and carried off by the music. Brilliant. Learn More

  • NAD M12 Digital Preamplifier and M22 Power Amplifier

    A gorgeous pair of Hi Fi separates being liquidated at a fantastic price. One combination only with all packaging and warranty.

    This is not the Grey finish NAD on the students budget shopping list, rather it is built without compromise to scale the heights of Accuphase and Krell.
