T.H.E. Show is a strategic commercial decision by who wants to keep in contact "out-and-out" with the enthusiasts of the true High-End.

It is not common for the Hi-Fi manufacturers to become a great and authentic brand, moreover quoted by Wikipedia. This fact, in a simple way, explains the culture and the design refinement of the classic Cabasse Pacific 3 speakers: top-level domestic High-End.

Verdi is the musical interpreter of the Italian Risorgimento. No, Verdi is not a revolutionary, at least not in the current sense of the term. Verdi pertains to Risorgimento and to Romanticism.

First listening impressions of the magneto-dynamic transducers with a sound very close to the traditional speakers. They can however maintain the ability of recreating the scene and the dimension of the soundstage like the most performing dipoles.

Minimalist in the look but glorious in the sound. The Soulution 540 is a CD/SACD digital player that employs the VRDS Esoteric VOSP transport and hides with great understatement its unlimited possibilities.

The fact that the senses do exist is a real trouble. Especially for the audiophiles.

The passive preamplifier is a very simple and functional machine that pays serious attention to the quality of the single component present along the signal path: the potentiometer.

The resolution of making at home the transformers has been a forced choice for Trafomatic, so I warn you: if you opt for Trafomatic, you are going to choose a unique amplification. The same thing arose a couple of years ago when you had to decide for expensive Japanese amplifications.

You have got it! It is not a CD but a LP: the old, black, long-playing realized in rare 180-gram virgin vinyl, made in EU.

Three-chassis amplification can be considered a goal for every audiophile enthusiast. AM Audio B-80 monoblocks are a clear example of this commitment. An Italian example of technical exercise entirely dedicated to pursue a sound that respects the original audio signal.

The beautiful listening experience and the great path for the fine-tuning, prove how much care and passion is essential for an audio system to perform at best.

I think that the OTL technology, if properly made, can put together the purity and the transparency of the single-ended triodes with the power of the transistors, and the result is a splendid blending between dynamic force and naturalness in the emission.

If you want to catch the nuances and the outstanding parameters, such as the harmonic rendering, the correctness of the tone, the reconstruction of the musical soundstage, maybe a transformer preamplifier could be the panacea and, in the case of the Zanden Model 3000, the end of all games. You cannot just start all over again!

I have always loved challenges and it is going to happen again. Thankfully, I gain full support from my patient wife, who understands and is behind me all the way in such a lucid foolishness… inside foolishness. To be an audiophile means to be a bit fool indeed. However, if you think to bring into life a website made by enthusiasts and dedicated to all the enthusiasts in the world, uh… well, this sounds like being crazy for real!
