This kind of amplification is said to eliminate the distortion commonly experienced in analog amplifiers and allows for very low power consumption.

The Model C Music System is presented in elegant, classic black lacquer as well as a broad range of customized wood or colored lacquer finishes to reflect its customer’s personal taste and home décor styles. Price starting at $148,000.

HSU Research goes Wireless for its new ULS-15 Subwoofer

HSU Research goes Wireless for its new ULS-15 Subwoofer

HSU Research has introduced the new ULS-15 subwoofer. According to the company, it can reach ultra low level down to 10Hz in most rooms with almost no distortion. The main point of this sub is its wireless connection, this makes it so much easier to optimally place the subwoofer without the clutter of cables. The ULS-15 is powered by a 1000W BASH amplifier with balanced inputs, adjustable cutoff frequency and switchable phase.

The ULS-15 features a woofer with patented super linear motor. The motor force is linear within 2% over an ultra wide +/- 20 mm. In contrast, most woofers with Xmax of +/- 30 mm will have the motor force within 2% over 5 mm or less. It also has a butyl rubber foam surround. Butyl rubber foam has the longevity of solid butyl rubber without the weight penalty. Triple shorting rings mean virtually non-existent flux modulation distortion.

The ULS-15 pricing starts at $1,299 in a satin black finish up to $1,499 for the piano gloss black finish.

Holfi Xandra MP Player is Battery Powered and plays SA-CD & DVD-video

The new Xandra MP (Multi Player) by Holfi is battery powered and plays not only CD but also SA-CD and DVD-Video with multi-channel audio support. Holfi has chosen to use an old fashioned linear power supply backed up with battery power instead of a switch mode power supply in order to reduce noise by 30 times, according to them. Like other Holfi products the analog section is a single ended / non feedback design, and a unique Holfi feature, called Virtual Center Speaker (VCS) allows you to play full surround sound without the use of a center speaker.

The player includes stereo, 5.1 surround and coaxial digital audio outputs as well as Scart, S-VHS and RCA (CVBS) video outputs. The frequency range is from 1Hz to 50kHz with a low 0.008% THD. Dimensions are 45.5x 8x 33cm and the unit weights 9 kg. Price is €4,500.

Chord Chordette Gem - Lower Cost DAC with Bluetooth Receiver

The Chord's Chordette Gem is designed to integrate within an existing HiFi system and allow the transfer of music from a Bluetooth enabled phone, PDA or personal computer. The addition of a USB port also allows direct streaming of audio from a PC.

The Chordette Gen supports any A2DP (Advanced Audio Profile) Bluetooth compatible devices. Using a custom designed Bluetooth receiver Chord has been able to extract and decrypt the normally unused digital audio information and input this directly into a high quality digital to analogue converter. Unlike the analog audio outputs seen from other Bluetooth devices this gives us much better performance and enables CD like transfer of music from the Bluetooth device. The unit has a range of up to 30 meters and the USB port can be connected to a personal computer and will seamlessly appear as an audio device by the operating system.

The compact receiver measures 160x 70x 40mm and is available in several finishes for a retail price of £399.
