  • Roksan Attessa Streaming Amplifier

  • Yamaha CD S2100

    A beautiful CD player that looks the timeless classic that it sounds. Crispiness and a neutral truthfulness to the sound are its sonic characteristics.

    It's also an SACD player which for this price bracket is a real bonus. Generally, one has to spend upwards of $5000 for a half decent SACD player.

  • Rega Saturn R CD player ... warmth and musical maturity

    Is it a CD player, or a DAC in disguise? The latest iteration of the Saturn looks to the future, looking towards that day when CD is no longer top of the digital food chain. Thanks to a suite of digital inputs including twin coax, optical and asynchronous USB, the Saturn will still be producing music long after you stop spinning CD's. How does it sound? Rega's high standards are in full effect here, with a sweet lyrical mid-range and smooth tonal balance. We're quite smitten and we're sure you will be too.

    Rab uses a legacy version of this player on his personal Ambience loudspeake stereo system and found it to be an overwhelmingly positive upgrade when it was introduced to replace an older Cambridge model. The music was restored to warmth with body and engagement ... rather like a mythical Vinyl/valve expectation.

  • Denon DCD-2500NE

    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 2500NE series, designed for today’s age, has been developed by both veteran engineers and talented young engineers who have inherited the Denon technologies and expertise that have been cultivated over many years and decades. The DCD-2500NE 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-2500NE’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.

  • Chord Hugo 2 .."The absolute icon of portable DAC in the history of mankind" ...

    It took a while to get here but its very good ....The Hugo 2 is uprated from the first version ... It's smaller and more expensive!

    The Hugo was a problem for us. It was so good that people stopped buying our other inventory of DACs. Although ostensibly a portable product it sounded so very lifelike that it was being used as the main engine in peoples home audio setups.

    This new one is just an exquisite bit of crafted alloy. When you hold it you dont want to let it go ... the glowing buttons while slightly Flash Gordon are delightful in operation and make perfect sense ... after a while.

    The Hugo 2 has four digital inputs. seven hours of battery life, and does the numbers up to 768KHz digital ...

  • Cyrus CDi-XR

    At 9 years old, my first trip overseas was spent in the UK visiting family and friends.

    Dad (mis)spent most of his youth in Cambridge and we followed him around to his old haunts.

    But because he owned and ran Carlton Audio Visual a 'family trip' was always sprinkled with a bit of Hi-Fi. Somehow the family and friends we visited were conveniently located next to HiFi factories...and nestled just next to Cambridge is Huntington where the Cyrus factory still develops and produces its units.

    Needless to say after such an early introduction to the brand, our whole family has owned Cyrus gear. I think my brother currently has 6 cyrus mono blocks set up with his Dynaudio speakers - a great combination. I own a smaller stack with CD8SE, Phono Signature and PSX-R power supply.

    There is no doubt that this boutique English brand commands loyalty from its customers. It's a sound that is effortless and timelessly musical. Their CD players are quieter, letting you hear more detail and sound stage. And they get timing right. Attack on notes is precise & clean bringing you closer to that feeling of 'being there', with the musicians in your living.

    And now Cyrus has launched their new XR series. New casework and buttons reveal a new aethestic direction for cyrus. But improvements to power supply and DAC have elevated this unit beyond their older models.

    The CDi-XR is in stock now and ready to demo.

  • Rega Saturn Mk 3

    This is the new version of a very dear favourite. A richness to the sound that does away with the brittleness and edge normally associated with the sound of cds. This CD player is the most 'vinyl' sounding CD player I've ever heard.

    The new unit has some updated aesthetics but keeps the same internals as the older Saturn R.

    We are expecting stock of the Saturn Mk3 in July.

  • Auralic Aries G1 Wireless Streaming Transporter

    The Auralic Aries G1 is a new addition to the stable here at Carlton Audio Visual and it's been an impressive one!

    It is 'only' a transport so you'll need to pair it with a high quality DAC. But as with everything in the Hi-Fi world when you can separate out the components, you can maximise the sound quality. Separate power supplies and separate chassis, so individual circuits don't inadvertently interfere with one another, are crucial.

    This unit is the successor to the original Auralic Aries and it has big boots to fill. Many consider that unit to be what brought Hi-res network streaming to the discerning world of the everyday Audiophile. But the Aries G1 is certainly up to the job.

    So how to describe how this streaming transport sounds. The best way to describe it is resolving. A cleaness and a delicacy in the music is revealed.

    A truly stunning piece of kit and will be the unit of choice for those passionate about their music and needing an excellent quality streaming device that's not up at the $10K mark.

  • Marantz SACD30N ... the Model 30 CD player and streamer

    This is something of a reincarnation product but with rather cutting edge digital disc and streaming tech . . Made in Japan with love. Physically the SA30 is actually gorgeous, the photos don't do it justice, it really exudes a quality aesthetic presence. In combination with the matching amp it is a piece of Hi Fi art that will make people who know nothing about stereo want to go and fondle it inappropriately ...

  • Naim ND5 XS 2, Network Player

    A dedicated HiFi streamer from beloved and iconic british manufacturer, Naim.

    More people are turning to real HiFi streamers and moving away from the Sonos and Heos units that are good starters but lack the wow factor when it comes to musical reproduction. If you're after a life like musical experience from your streaming source, it's time to think about upgrading to something like the ND5 XS2. 

    I love how easy to use the Naim is as well. Sometimes Highend HiFi orientated streaming units sound fantastic but lack the software to back them up. Not the case with Naim.

    A pleasure to use.
