Room treatments - a cost effective upgrade?

Room treatments - a cost effective upgrade? You bet!

Having recently moved house, I was excited by the prospect of a dedicated listening room. My kit shared the lounge previously which was carpeted, had curtains and a number of soft furnishings. The room was about 5m x 6m and had a beamed ceiling with beams running perpendicular to the listening axis. It all sounded pretty good. This was my baseline moving to the new house.

In the new, dedicated listening room, the floor is not…

This Changes Everything - The Vertere RG1 & SG1 Record Players

Yesterday I experienced the best analogue set up I have ever heard - bar none. The new Vertere turntables are just extraordinary and having smashed through the glass ceiling of analogue performance 30 years ago with the Xerxes, Touraj  has taken it to a whole new level again with the RG1 & SG1 Touraj's  passion…

Focal Utopia Scalas V2 - A New Owner's Initial Thoughts


Well the title of the post isn't very attention grabbing...unlike the Scalas themselves.

They've only gone and done it again - Chord Co Ethernet Cables

Matt from Chord was with us today, running us through their new ethernet cables. Compared to a standard patch lead the entry C Stream was a revelation, and the Indigo and Sarum Tuned Aray were just in a totally different league.

A True Modern Day Classic

Just like the Alvo Aalto Stool 60 upon which it is sat, the Neat Petite is a triumph of modernist, pared back design and truly deserves it's iconic status. In this instance less is most definitely more and this clever two way communicates the musical message like few others.…

Vertere Cables with Naim - An Owner's Perspective

Neil B had this to say about his recent cable evaluation:-

"Then to the specific listening to the system with the Vertere in place. Well, to my ears the difference was marked. I found the detail of the component parts of tracks, specific instruments and minor ancillary parts to be astonishingly clear, yet also integrated overall into the music in a beguiling fashion. It reminded me of my impression when first getting the 500, with the same verve and viscerality characteristics, and…
