  • Sony VPLVW760ES laser projector 4K whiter than white

    When we first saw this it was still "Project Vulcan" and it was played at a Sony Pro dealer gathering against the other 4k offerings on the market.

    The remarkable thing about its image was how off-white it made all the other projectors look. White rendition is something we tend to take for granted, reviewers always talk about the reds and the colour dynamic and black levels ... however once you see a pure white reproduced effectively you cannot go back.

    Frankly this projector makes the other 4k offerings under look like yellow snow ...

    Australia is possibly the cheapest place in the world to buy it. US Sell price $25,000, we expected it to sell here for $35,000Aus ... actual Australian Sale price $22,999 ...

    Available for demonstration in our 65 Pelham st showroom. This is one of the best Projectors we have ever seen at CAV.

  • Project Clamp It Aluminium Record Clamp

    Functional and easy to use sound improvement!  

    Vinyl sound can be significantly improved, when unwanted resonances between record and platter can be reduced, while playback. Therefore surfaces of record and platter should connect tigthly.  


    Standard record pucks, that use weight to achieve this, have 2 disadvantages:  

    1) The weight can induce higher levels of rumble, when used with lower cost turntables which have less massive main bearings  

    2) Instead of tightening the records surface to the platter, heavy weight record pucks can cause the opposite: Vinyl will get shaped like a bowl with no contact of the outer edges of the record to the platter.  

    Both will affect the sound negatively.  


    Clamp it is the real solution, an accessory with a clamp mechanism around the center spindle, that will not add weight, which would induce rumble. You can fine-adjust pressure according condition of your warped records. Fitting of Clamp it is easily done within seconds. This accessory will not only please your ears, its beautifully machined diamond-cut edges will also look extremely cool on any turntable!

  • Project 2Xperience SB Turntable

    Outstanding performance from a compact and luxurious turntable configuration  


    2Xperience SB is based on the 2Xperience belt-drive concept which incorporates over 20 years of turntable design experience. The addition of precision motor control with electronic speed changing and a highend 9cc Evolution carbon fiber tonearm means playback quality is vastly improved. The heavy chassis is made from MDF using a non-resonant construction technique. The turntable platter is built with heavy, non-resonant materials in a precisely balanced sandwich configuration. A vinyl layer acts as the perfect turntable mat. A screwable and light-weight record clamp eliminates unwanted record vibration and rumbling of the main platter bearing. The audio performance of the final product benefits from the resonance-free platter, avoiding the ringing effect of common metal and glass platters. The 2Xperience SB is not only equipped with a highend tonearm, but comes with a pre-fitted Ortofon 2M Silver magnetic cartridge that makes use of silver voice coils. An acrylic dust cover is also included. Finishes are available in three real wood veneer options (eucalyptus, walnut, palisander) as well as three high-gloss finishes (olive, mahogany, black).

    Olympic Theatre: it is design, planning, harmony, proportions, acoustics, sensitivity, search for beauty, wonder, expert processing of materials, emotions. One of the greatest works of the Master and chief architect Andrea Palladio created before his death as a perennial gift to Vicenza, enriching it further with another precious gem and a universal example of beauty and ingenuity. True and exemplary values that all can enjoy and make their own thanks to their glorious and radiant presence. And Sonus faber created in this beautiful and fortunate land could not but make this teaching and principles its own since its very beginning, inextricably linking them to their own history and then applying them in its Musical instruments which proudly resonate with the harmony of the city and the art that inspired them.  In acknowledgement of the unique legacy of Andrea Palladio, Sonus faber has decided to create  Sonus faber Olympica, a sincere homage to the Olympic Theatre, temple of geometric pleasure in the voice of Music, the container in which sound seamlessly expands and an accurate reference model of acoustic enhancement.

  • Marantz SR7012 Wolf in retro clothing Home Cinema Receiver

    So there is a very distinct case for why you would purchase a Marantz SR7012. At a bit over $4000 it is one of the more expensive Theatre Receivers a customer is likely to buy in Australia. 

    However unlike so many of its other market place competitors this amplifier has been designed for music as well as movies. They have built into the rather massive chassis a very load tolerant output stage with genuine class when it comes to that audition with a testing piece of music or video through possibly contrary loudspeakers.

    In order to be able to produce good music an amplifier must be able to force the drive units to comply with the complex modulations of the signal. Most surround amplifiers quote an arbitrary power output without any parameters and when presented with a real world reactive impedance load of a serious high quality speaker they simply lack the amperage required to drive a complex load cleanly.

    You hear this as poor bass definition and the soundstage tied inexorably to the speaker cabinets rather than projected into the room.

    The Marantz SR7012 will drive real world speakers with impunity and intrinsic musicality. We have purveyed these Receivers with Ambience Ribbon speakers and Dynaudios that would crush a conventional surround amplifier.
