Alta Audio are one of hi-fi’s best kept secrets but not for much longer! Michael Levy is a speaker designer who “thinks outside the box” and has designed a remarkable hybrid transmission line/ported system that means all of his speakers deliver a full range listening experience. The ALEC is an absolutely beautifully finished “real home”-sized floor standing speaker, that does not ‘loom over the room’, but whose bass output has been measured down to a subterranean 29Hz! A hugely musically satisfying model. Each model performs well above it’s price point and they have been garnering emotional responses with many ‘hardened’ reviewers who are basically shaking their heads in disbelief. The reviews of all the models are spectacular with some saying they are the best speakers they have ever heard, regardless of price!
Revival Audio Speakers
REVIVAL AUDIO is a brand new French speaker company, but the principle players have been designing speakers for over 30 years. Daniel Emonts was Dynaudio’s Senior Acoustics Designer for many years and also worked on the Focal Utopia speakers.
He started Revival Audio in conjunction with Jacky Lee, a multi-talented Strategist Executive.
Revival Audio is now his own legacy company and he has poured his years of design experience and knowledge into the best speakers he can make.
The combination of excellent sound quality, beautifully designed and built cabinets and fantastic “value for money” has had the worldwide audio community sit up and take full notice of Revival Audio and the brand has spread rapidly across the globe in a very short time.

COPLAND AUDIO WEBSITE
***Here are recent reviews of the Copland CSA-100 Amplifier***
I am very excited to be importing Copland Audio into New Zealand
They are a small, premium manufacturer of valve and hybrid valve/solid state amplifiers and DACs from Denmark. They are renowned for their very high quality build and stunning Scandinavian design.
Established by Olé Möller in the mid-eighties who still owns and runs the company to this day.
Ken Kessler of Hi Fi News awarded the CTA-408 integrated amplifier an “Outstanding Product” Award and said:
“This just may be the best-value high-end integrated of the decade. I love it…..”
Full review here:
I am very privileged to be importing the extensive range of Amplifiers, CD Players, Streaming Amplifiers and other components from Atoll Electronique from France.
The Atoll Electronique Company was founded in September 1997 by 2 brothers: Stéphane & Emmanuel Dubreuil. Right from the start the philosophy was to address a lack in the market: no reasonably priced true high-end audio electronics for budget-conscious audiophiles.
Their whole range is designed, tested and manufactured in Normandy, France. They have quietly built up a large range of different components over the last few years and are now garnering much international notice.
They are beautifully designed and built. They sound excellent and they are priced extremely well for a European sourced product line. Finally a product line from Europe that does not break the bank!
These will be stocked NZ-wide so please contact me to find out your nearest stockist.
GRIMM AUDIO WEBSITE
Grimm Audio are at the the absolute forefront of the high end digital evolution of music. Their Grimm Audio MU1 Streamer has been hugely praised. Completely free from any digital artifacts and the music flows with ease and grace.
The new MU2 Streamer/DAC/Preamp is already taking the world by storm
“Little Fwend” Tonearm Lifter
The “Little Fwend” Tonearm lifter has one job to do and it does it beautifully, smoothly and gently and will do this for years and will look good doing it!
You drift off to sleep, you pop out of the room, you get THAT phone call and you can now do all this safe in the knowledge that the record you are playing will keep spinning round but your tonearm and your cartridge will gently lift off at the end of the LP.
There are a High version and a Low version and a new Disco version specifically designed for the Technics 1210/1200
It is very delicate and precise, and it operates like a precision instrument.
The lifting Mechanism: Safe. Smooth. Silent. Those were the most important aspects of the design. We experimented a lot finding the right relationship between spring compression force, travel, dampening and friction. Little Fwend lifts the tonearm smoothly and controlled with minimum use of force (and a little help from Newtons fwends). Little Fwend can lift tonearms with cartridges set up to 5 grams VTF.
Release Antenna: High carbon steel Roslau piano wire. Very low lateral force is required to release the mechanism.
Rubber Beam: Neoprene rubber padding lets the tonearm rest safely and stable even with the level a few degrees off both horizontally and vertically.
U-SPIN revolving Record Storage System
I have designed and manufactured the U-Spin; a fantastic revolving record storage system manufactured from great looking, strong 20mm bamboo panels. Sanded and oiled to a silky finish.
This is great news for folk with large collections and to save covering all your walls with record storage shelves.
The U-Spin is only 680mm (27 inches) square at the base. Each storage bay hold approximately 65 LP’s. A 5-layer high unit stands 1830mm high and will store approximately 1300 LP’s. A heavy duty mechanism means it revolves easily.
The units are purchased per layer and can be assembled up to 5 layers high. This size will have a weight of about 400kg (880 pounds) so make sure it is placed in a suitable spot.
They can be transported flat-packed and assembled in under an hour.
Tui Record Browser
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…:-)
Sugden Class A amplifiers and CD players
The exclusive New Zealand importer of the extraordinary Sugden Class A amplifiers and CD players from the UK.
I am thrilled to be representing Allnic Audio in NZ.
Allnic Audio are a high end audio company from South Korea who produce a beautiful range of valve amplifiers, DACS, cables and are especially renowned for their stunning phono stages which range in price from the aspirational $5995 H-1202 up to the majesty of the $59,000 H8000 DHT.
The new ALLNIC $7995 AMBER and $5300 ROSE are the best cartridges I have ever heard. Hugely dynamic and spacious. Demo models are available to try.
The new $23,5000 T-2000 30th Anniversary integrated amplifier is a revelation. A stunning sounding amplifier which can be 60watts in Triode mode or 120watts in Pentode mode.
The wonderful AMG Viella V12 Turntable has taken the high end audio world by storm in the last few years. Brand new and yet instantly a unique mature product with it’s remarkable 12J2 12 inch tonearm. It is now joined by the beautiful AMG Giro Turntable with the 9W2 9 inch tonearm

Many outstanding reviews online.
DS Audio Optical Phono Cartridges
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-E1 cartridge and equalizer have arrived at a much more affordable price of $4995. 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-E1 model are fantastic and it is very exciting to have it available in New Zealand.
Kiseki Phono Cartridges
I am privileged to be importing the historically important and recently reissued Japanese-made Kiseki Phono Cartridges.
The Purple Heart and Blue have been lauded and praised since their re-introduction.
Many reviewers praising them as being “true” high end at incredibly reasonable prices.
AM Audio Amplifiers
I am now privileged to be the NZ distributor of these wonderful amplifiers and accessories.
The 833M Monoblocks are striking looking and strikingly sounding 120 watt Single Ended amplifiers. The huge 833 tube allows this massive power while still being a pure single ended power amplifier……just remarkable.
The RT-2 Silver Preamplifier is SPECIAL!
This reviewer says it goes “toe to toe” with his $70,000 Audionote M8 Preamplifier.
All AM Audio amplifiers are absolutely world class are should be on your short list if looking for the finest sounding amplifiers money can buy.
The exclusive New Zealand importer and distributor of the remarkable “Living Voice” range of floor standing Speakers.
Edward Barker of www.6moons.com said of the OBX-RW:
“From my vantage point, it’s the most desirable speaker available today. I say that without apologies, caveats, disclaimers, quibbles, or even the false glow of first acquaintance … It’s a remarkable achievement”
I am very privileged to be presenting the USA-built CANARY AUDIO products to NZ consumers for the first time.
Beautifully built, and absolutely beautiful sounding valve-based Monoblocks, Stereo Amplifiers, Pre-amplifiers, Phono-amplifiers and CD Players.
