  • Rega Apollo CD Player ...

    We particularly like this quirkily designed compact disc spinner. It is the one to which we always turn when we are doing a demonstration within the store that requires a silver circle to be played in a reasonably priced system. There is a guaruntee of musicality at a sensible price that makes this the source most likely to bring the music to the customer in an enjoyable fashion. The top loader mechanism makes this quite unique in its engineering at this price range. Oddly this type of mech doesn't appear again in other brands until they are worth many thousands of dollars more.

  • Musical Fidelity MX-DAC

    The MX DAC has been around for a while now (since 2016) and it still surprises. For such a little box, 220mm x 220mm, and a relatively affordable price, this unit ticks boxes that much bigger and pricier units don't manage.

    It has XLR outputs so future system upgrades will be well catered for. It also has all the digital inputs you could possibly what in this modern age: 2 x coax (up to 24bit 192 kHz PCM), 2 x optical (up to 24bit 192kHz PCM) and asynchronous USB up to 24bit 192 kHz PCM as well as DSD 64 and DSD 128.

    Also, all inputs whether from coax, optical or USB, are processed in the DSD domain. This desirable feature gives a warmth and humanity to the sound that simple digital conversion doesn’t achieve.

    And its the sound of this unit that really surprises. Rich and detailed, musical and nuanced. Stuff that units double its price can struggle with, sound sublime. 

    Come give this beauty a try, you won't be dissapointed.

    Nowadays alot of avid music listeners have separate DACs or individually accesible in their CD players that they're crazy about, so it makes sense to use those DACs and upgrade the insides of the actual streaming source componentry to make it better.

    Cleaning up the streaming source, when done right, also has an incredible effect on your system; and Cyrus does it right.

  • Marantz PM7000N stereo amplifier with streaming and DAC

    We've always sold Marantz stereo amplifiers at Carlton Audio Visual. From the beginning when Rab acquired stock from another failed retail outfit, that he used to work for. Marantz has been part of the inventory and unlike other brands that leave us once ownership and manufacturing standards change, Marantz stays with us. For thirty years it's been consistently reliable, consistently musical, consistently up to date with the latest connections.

    The PM7000N is the lovechild of a throuple of the PM6007amplifier, a Heos Link, and a decent digital to analogue converter.

    Connections on this unit include phono for a Turntable, Optical and Coaxial for digital sources like a TV, USB, subwoofer, outputs for two sets of speakers and most importantly streaming capabilities (via Heos built-in). And sure there are other amps that have similar set of connections with Phono and a selection of digital inputs forming the basis of many stereo integrated amps these days, but they don't normally have streaming built in. For another class AB amp with such a spec sheet you could look at the Naim Uniti Atom  ($4995) or the Class D Cambridge Audio Evo 150 ($4299) but the Marantz has a richness in the sound that others lack.

    A cello sounds full deep and resonating, like a cello should. And female vocalists like Hannah Reid from London Grammar don't become shrill when the volume goes up a bit. 

    At just below the $2K mark, this is a solid offering and a must-listen for those wanting a do-it-all amplifier.

  • Bryston BDP-2, Trade-in, Black

    A really interesting Digital Music player and platform designed by celebrated Canadian manufacturer Bryston.

    They call the BDP-2 a Digital Music player but it should really be called a streamer with some added benefits. Stream music from Tidal, local NAS drive or Bryston's own Manic Moose firmware. Learn more about Manic Moose here.

    At the heart of this unit is a dedicated power supply that as any self respecting HiFi manufacturer knows, getting that right means clarity of tonal precision in the final product.

  • Musical Fidelity M2s CD Player

From the fine fit and finish of its metal casework to the unique technology sitting inside, the M2scd exceeds expectations. The M2scd builds on our years of engineering expertise, uniquely featuring both a mains choke filter and a high-tech digitalstream noise filter.

    The M2scd's DAC design also draws from its high-end siblings, using cutting-edge technology to ensure excellent data recovery from your discs. Simply put, that means you'll hear more from your music. Reviews say "a very mature and polished performer", which "sounds refined and elegant".

  • Denon DCD1600NE

    Denon is one of the rare audio brands that continued to actively develop Hi-Fi components and accumulate, refine, and pass down Hi-Fi audio technologies. The DCD-1600NE focuses on achieving the essence of a disc player: ultra-high precision in reading discs and supplying high-quality audio signals to the amp. To achieve this, the signal paths are as short as possible and the whole circuitry is minimized. The engineers also redesigned the disc drive mechanism brackets and the chassis to eliminate vibration, the great enemy of disc players, and achieve ultra-vibration-resistant performance. The information on the disc is now read with impeccable accuracy and a clean, high-grade signal is supplied to the DCD-1600NE’s Advanced AL32 Processing Plus circuitry. Besides CD and Super Audio CD playback, the DCD features playback of audio recordings up to PCM192/24 or DSD5.6 recorded on a DVD R/RW for full flexibility and extended access to high resolution audio.

  • Cyrus DAC X Signature, TRADE-IN, Black

    I've never been one to instantly fall in love with upsampling technology but I know when it's done right, as Cyrus has, that it works wonders on your less than perfect digital sources.

    I'm sure you've heard the phrase 'you can't polish a turd'...it's not necessarily true, this DAC can...and to 192kHz at that...

    It also contains Cyrus's re-clocking technology. Any unit that has this in it by Cyrus elevates the musicality, the detail and image of tracks to another realm. It's truly like fairy dust in the way it can imprint a magical musicality to your music.

    Apart from its upconversion and re-clocking technology, this is also simply one very good DAC containing 4 fully balanced 32-bit DAC chips.

  • Naim CD5Si

    Naim is one of the best of English HiFi brands harking from Salisbury where their design and manufacturing facilities are located. They are one of the true high-end electronic brands that make gear like their Statement Amplifiers retailing for a cool $375,000 for a set.

    This little CD player is their entry level but for most people this doesn't represent your typical first-time-buyer HiFi component. It's intricately thought out, meticulously engineered, clean and musical. 

    The typical comparison is with Rega and Cyrus CD players, both english and both also in our inventory. The Naim is more transparent sounding than a Rega Apollo, finding more detail and space in the music. It's closer in performance to the bigger (and more expensive) Rega Saturn. The Saturn, however, has a richer tonality to it than the Naim. A bit more 'rounded' on the treble. The Cyrus CDi, has a similar sound signature and as a half size unit it offers a convenient footprint. The slot mechanism will never be a perfectly reliable solution for a CD player though and what Naim has done with their tray and resonance reduction is really admirable.

    In conclusion, this is a unit to throw into the mix from one of the best manufacturers out there. It may well be the perfect unit for you. Feel free to call us to talk more and have a read of some of its stellar reviews from well trusted HiFi institutions.
