  • PMC Twenty5.21i, Bookshelf speakers

    The new and improved version of the ever popular PMC twenty5 series is HERE! The twenty5i. 

    These are the baby bookshelves of the range and like all the PMC speakers sport an Advanced Transmission Line built into the cabinet that controls air and vibrational energy flow to squeeze as much sound and low frequency out of a speaker this small as is humanely possible. They quote a 46Hz limit for these which is really quite remarkable. But this is a feature that was present in the older non 'i' model as is the laminated front airflow port, the bass driver and the size of the speakers. In fact, PMC, states that not enough was upgraded with this iteration to warrant a completely new model name...

    ...so what has changed, you ask? Well the tweeter has been completely revamped. It is a two part design with an inner 19mm dome and an outer 34mm dome leaving the 19mm dome to deal with dispersion of sound and frequency response and the 34mm dome integrates more seamlessly with the bass driver. This couple with a new crossover design means a more uniformed, consistency across the whole frequency band.

  • Dynaudio Special Forty ... a symbol of transducer renaissance for this loudspeaker brand.

    1 Review(s)

    With the success of the 25th Anniversary bookshelf, there was no doubt Dynaudio's 40th anniversary edition was going to improve upon this. Come and here them for yourself they blew us away.

    We happened to have a pair of B&W bookshelf speakers in the shop that retail for $8000 ... a forced trade in ... 

    The problem is these $6000 Dynaudios sound so much nicer than the B&W's without even trying that we have no idea how we are going to sell the B&W's for what they owe us.

    The Special Forty is classic Dynaudio: all the craftsmanship, attention to detail and total love of authentic sound you’ve come to expect. It’s the connoisseur’s choice – a simple pair of passive hi-fi speakers.

    But Dynaudio claim that it isn’t about looking back, misty-eyed, at past glories and leaving it at that. It’s about using those glories as a platform from which to launch their next set of breakthroughs.

  • PMC Twenty5.22i bookshelf transmission line maestro speaker

    We always joke that PMC speakers are one of the few very good things to have come out of the Luton area of England....and if anyone has ever had to deal with Luton airport I'm sure you'd sympathise.

    We've loved PMC speakers since we first got a pair about 15 years ago and unboxing a new range is always exciting, even if PMC has decided that they're not changing things up dramatically from their old range.

  • Krix Esoterix Altum new concept high end bookshelf speakers

    We first saw this unique design as a tentative and secret prototype while drinking wine from the Krix Vineyard two years ago.

    There is no doubt that Krix possess world class R&D facilities with state of the art instrumentation and analysis. It was with interest that I looked under a table in one of their laboratories and found the disassembled carcasses of B&W and Monitor Audio bookshelf speakers during that visit ...

    It turns out that Scott has always nurtured an ambition to shake the audiophile tree for the high end bookshelf speaker. The Esoterix Altum is the result of that.

    Now not everybody has grooved to their appearance it seems.

    Think of them as that bespectacled fair haired girl who always sits quietly at the front of class while the cool kids hang shite on her. Then one day she’s on the front cover of Vogue while taking a break from studying medicine at Cambridge ... these speakers will one day be recognized as classics of sound and aesthetics ...

  • Spendor Classic 2/3 Stand Mount Speaker.

    A true classic English speaker taking its aesthetics and ethos from the 60s. The cabinets are made from a relatively thin wooden casing which like a hand made violin will flex ever so slightly at lower frequencies where we don't hear as much and are rigid where it matters for the upper bass, mids and treble.

    A gorgeous warmth to these just oozes out of them.

    This is how they've made speakers for the BBC for decades and those that love the 'Classic' sound will fall in love with these.

    We have had a long and fortunate relationship with the Monitor Audio Platinum. They are a unique mix of massive precision engineering with a physcotic attention to detail and overlay of leather that spells top of the range Aston Martin while the rest of the British loudspeaker industry is stuck in the land of Vaxhaull Victor Learn More

  • Dynaudio Contour 20i Bookshelf Speakers

    On the face of it, the new Contour range from Dynaudio looks very similar to the old range and in alot of ways they are. But why wouldn't they want to be? The Contour range has been extraordinarily popular and a hallmark of craftsmanship and musicality.

    All of that is evident in the new series but there are things under the hood that have changed. Most notably the upgraded tweeter that has a larger rear chamber delivering better damping and therefore a cleaner sound and an even flatter frequency response.

    Pair these with an amplifier with considerable juice and grit - we'd suggest trying a Rega Aethos or a Musical Fidelity M6si - and you've got a seriously good system that will make the toughest audiophiles swoon.

  • Spendor Classic 1/2 Standmount Speakers

    The Spendor Classic 1/2 Standmount speakers have the ultimate classic look and a classic sound as well that harkens back to that luscious era of 60s swinging London. 

    But with a warmth and a ripened depth to the sound these aren't spekers that'll just look the part, they sound it as well. A full 3 way bookshelf loudspeaker with a serious pedigree.

  • The Yamaha NS3000 loudspeaker

    We have the first pair of these on display in Australia. We only had to pledge one of our children to indentured servitude for life in Japan to acquire them, They are beautiful and much easier to live with than an annoying child.

  • Sonus Faber Electa Amator III loudspeakers ... Classic Italiana

    The original Electa Amator was one of the foundation models for Sonus faber that set the seductive timbre and musicaity allied to unique cabinetry artisanship that is very much the signature of this brand.

    The Electa Amator III is immensly tactile with its combination of wood marble and leather, In my mind it feels like one of those precious pieces of preserved Roman art that is found in the corridoors of The Louvre rather than a mere loudspeaker.

  • Yamaha NS-5000 speakers ... classical gas

    Available to audition in their own Lygon st Showroom. These are a speaker of remarkable presence and beauty. They are highly capable of presenting the music in a natural and completely unfettered manner. Properly powered it doesn't matter what the volume is, they retain their particular quality at low volume and can very nearly do PA type sound pressure levels while remaining tonally consistent throughout. A remarkable performance envelope.

    I fell in love with the spiritual and physical precursor to this speaker being the NS1000 of the 1980's, indeed I still have clients from that era who bought those speakers back then from me and feed them a diet of new amplification and sources every 15 years or so. These NS5000 speakers are better, like a new Lexus is better than my old Corolla.

  • Dynaudio Confidence 20 ... a beautiful thing

    The compact Confidence 20 is perhaps the most technically perfect two way bookshelf speaker ever made. Dynaudio have spent years looking at how to improve on the previous range of Confidence speakers. And, after almost countless hours in design labs, the state-of-the-art Jupiter measuring facility, modelling and simulation suites – and, of course, listening rooms – they've done it.

  • Spendor Classic 100, stand mount speakers

    The Classic series from Spendor is a unique design harking back to the good old days where vinyl records were carried around to house parties, speakers were big and their bass drivers were just as big!

    If you miss the sound of smoky rooms, rock n roll and brown and gold interior decoration these are the speakers for you. 

    With large 30cm bass drivers and retro styling you will be forgiven for thinking these are speakers from the 60s. And that's because they've been made to look, sound and feel like they were.

    Thin walled and heavily dampened is something unusual these days as most modrn designs strive for super high rigidity in their cabinet to control the resonances as best they can. Spendor argues, however, that that's an impossibility - you'll always have a cabinet that resonates to some degree. The trick, they say, is to mke sure those resonances occur where you want them to and that's in the low frequencies where they are less audible to our ears.

    Highly rigid cabinetry tends to push these resonances into the upper bandwidths creating a harshness or brightness to the tone. 

    These Spendors don't have that built-in brittleness and are the classic easy-listening speaker.

  • Sonus Faber Guarneri Tradition ... Hey, did you happen to see the most beautiful speaker in the world?

    The smallest of the Homage Tradition series is perhaps the most perfectly formed. A standmount speaker with jaw dropping looks, but it will reward those that look beyond it's beauty and listen to how it emotes. You'll forget the size of the speaker you are listening to when you hear it in action - it's small cabinet is capable of completely melting into the soundstage. Glass, Leather, Aluminium and Real wood timber.
