Audeze headphones now on demonstration in Carlton

Sunday, 5 June 2016 9:49:00 pm Australia/Melbourne

These Audeze LCD series are beautiful and carefully presented devices. Clearly something to be bought out on a special occasion and not simply bandied about on the morning commute. Unlike our beloved and incredibly good Oppo headphones the LCD series stand out with their wood and bamboo cases. It would be frankly pretentious to wear LCDs on the morning commute, indeed these bamboo and wood LCD 2 and LCD 3 are such good transducers that it seems churlish not to make a special time and a place to listen to them with a good wine to complement the experience.

Bring us your old, your sick, your dead ...

Friday, 8 April 2016 7:29:03 pm Australia/Melbourne

Each Saturday from now on we are having a session of Turntable tune and repair instore as a way to revive not only your old record player but also perhaps your flagging interest in a vinyl music collection corrupted by a faulty disc spinner. 

One of the beauties of a turntable is that they are readily serviced with a few specialist tools and parts and reward a bit of TLC with far better sound and many years of life. In this fashion they are far more kindred to a good guitar or piano rather than a piece of consumer disposable electronics.

We have manufacturer trained reps onsite from Project, Rega, Linn, and Ortofon. Should alas your old vinyl spinner be beyond reincarnation we can offer specials on upgrades to a new player.

The day I discovered Rotel

Friday, 11 March 2016 6:10:27 pm Australia/Melbourne

 I recently had the very distinct privilege of visiting the Rotel Factory in Zhuhai in China. Although the factory is no longer in Japan the company is still owned by the Tachikawa family that founded it in Tokyo in 1957 as The Roland Company. Initially they were manufacturing Sylvania TVs for the US market and then in the 1960’s moved into Hi Fi as an OEM supplier for Yamaha, Marantz, and others. Rotel branded products were first sold in 1961.

 

The founder Tomoki Tachikawa is 91 years old and still visits the Factory from Japan regularly. It transpires that he is a lifelong friend of Alex Encel and Interdyne of Australia is by far the longest distributor relationship with a fifty year marriage. These days the company is run by Mr Tachikawa's grandson Peter Kao pictured here holding a newborn Rotel amplifier circuit.
