Products worth knowing about.
From time-to-time I'll put items on this page that I really like. It maybe a component that is great value for money, or offers exceptional sound in it's class or breaks new ground with technology.
Naim mu-so 2
Naim looked at the all-in-one market and decided to make a unit that sounded better than the competition. They succeeded with the original Mu-so and then some. Now Naim has released the Mu-so 2, a completely rebuilt from the ground up model bringing improved performance and connectivity. This compact, beautifully made component brings even more of Naim's trade mark sound that places importance on the pace, rhythm and timing of music.
Connect it to your home network with either an ethernet cable or wireless. It features all the digital technologies listeners will require - UPnP (Universal Plug n' Play) streaming, Airplay 2, Spotify Connect, Bluetooth, Chromecast, USB, HDMI ARC plus an analogue and optical input. Use it as a soundbar for your TV via either the optical or HDMI ARC inputs.
Control is either via the lovely rotary knob on the unit, the supplied remote control and/or the free Naim app.
Unleash your digital music, whether it's stored on your local network or streamed from the internet. Mu-so 2 is the premium compact wireless speaker your music deserves. $2799.00
isotek aquarius mains conditioner
IsoTek is a British company designing and building award-winning power optimisation products. The quality of the electricity our Hi-Fi systems receive has a profound effect on their musical performance.
The increase of both differential (distortion from anything plugged into our mains) and Common Mode (RFI, Wi-Fi etc) is causing a detrimental effect on our music and home theatre systems.
The multi award-winning Aquarius is designed to lower these effects by up to 60dB before they enter our audio/visual components. This results in a lower noise floor leading to better resolution, improved attack and decay and better bass control.
With 6 socket outlets, including 2 for high current components, the Aquarius is fairly priced at $2999.00
