The 70watt RMS “Aeolos Ultra”

Tsakiridis Devices Website

Tsakiridis Devices are a family company designing and hand manufacturing a large range of integrated amplifiers and preamplifiers and power amplifiers along with a sophisticated valve testing machine and power conditioners.

They are extremely well priced for European-made valve amplifiers with their best selling “Aeolos” retailing for $2995.

They perform well above their price point with one dealer saying the Aeolos is easily the best “EL34” based amplifier he has ever heard.

They have a modern dynamic fast sound with very good bass and the valve “openess” across the spectrum.

The Aeolos has Triode/Pentode switching and Low Feedback/Normal Feedback switching.

A huge benefit of the Aeolos is each valve is individually biased and you can choose to use KT88 or KT120 tubes for more power, instead of the EL34 tubes, which makes these very flexible and a “tweaker’s” dream!

They also come with a solid 5 year warranty so you can buy with confidence.

Absolute Sound and Hi Fi Plus Review

TNT Audio Review



Introducing the new TUI Record Browser. Finally a record storage option that is as attractive to look at as it is useful
It has been designed and manufactured by Soul to Sole Audio here in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand.
It holds up to 100 LP’s, though that would be quite tight for browsing. Around 80 albums for good “flickability”
Units are made from 20mm hand-oiled bamboo panels. They oil up to a lovely golden colour
It is cleverly designed with “tongue and groove” tabs and “cam” locking systems. It is sent flat packed and easily assembled in about 10 minutes and is very strong when completed.
It is slim and elegant looking . The bamboo edge looks great compared to “normal” ply. It is a more expensive material but you end up with a much nicer looking product.
Narrow enough to fit in a small space and also designed to be expandable with single units bolting together to make as long a unit as you desire. Each TUI will come with connecting bolts and tools for expansion if desired.
It has been designed and built as an attractive record storage solution that will fit into a living room situation without looking out of place. A “tick of approval” from others in the home hopefully…:-)

HECO have been manufacturing and selling speakers to the discerning German hi fi market for well over six decades. They manufacture a large range of  very fine sounding and beautifully finished speakers and all at excellent prices. Discrete  floorstanders from as little as $1495 up to the large flagship Concerto Grosse at $16,500. This model along with the New Statement use highly sophisticated AlNico midrange drivers in their midrange which is virtually unheard of in speakers of this price.

I am very happy to be presenting the whole range to the NZ market over 2016.

Pictured is the fantastic HECO Direkt……design cues taken from cool guitars and 50s/60s cars. They look fantastic and sound better…!


DS AUDIO Optical Phono Cartridges

DS 002 Cartridge

DS Audio are manufacturing an extraordinary range of optical cartridges that are taking the vinyl playback world by storm. Digital Stream Corporation invented the optical mouse alongside Microsoft and have put their intensive knowledge into making, what some reviewers are saying, are the finest phono cartridges in the world.

Here’s how the DS Audio Cartridges work: The cartridge uses a light source (a miniature LED) that is powered by the included equalizer/power supply (which replaces your phonostage) via the tonearm cables and internal tonearm wiring. The record-groove vibrations transmitted by the stylus/cantilever modulates this LED light via a moving screen, and the modulated light is picked up by a photoelectric sensor. This photodiode converts the light into an electrical signal, sending it back through the tonearm cabling to the equalizer/power supply unit, which amplifies the signal into a RIAA-equalized line-level output.  There is nothing digital about the DS Audio Optical Cartridges. They are  entirely analog devices.

The brand new DS Audio-002 cartridge and equalizer have arrived at a much more affordable price of $8995. This price includes the phonostage so this is a highly competitive product in the realm of high quality vinyl playback.

The reviews of this new DS-002 model are fantastic and it is very exciting to have it available in New Zealand.

Entreq are based in Sweden and make a range of cables and audio acessories but their most important and remarkable products are their range of Ground Conditioners.

These function by removing  the “pollutants” in the delicate audio signal which are then grounded into the passive Entreq Ground Conditioner Boxes. The result is a darker, deeper audio background which does not change the essential nature of your system but boosts all it’s fine points. They have been manufactured and constantly improved for over 7 years and are priced from $549 for the Minimus Ground Conditioner up to the mighty Olympus Tellus Ground Conditioner priced at $13,995.

There is an extensive forum discussion on “What’s Best” forum which extends over 2000 postings and is highly illuminating on the positive benefits of using the Entreq Ground Contioners, cables and their other audio accessories
