Happy New Year Ladies and Gentlemen,
To kick this year off, I am going to do a newsletter to keep everyone up to date with the latest news at DB HIFI. I am, hopefully, going to attempt to do this as regularly as possible throughout the year.
We actually have got quite a bit to go through. First off, something I have only recently got my hands on…Clef Audio…yes, I know, not a brand that probably immediately jumps out at you. They are based in Thailand and although Thailand maybe known for other culturally rich things hi-fi may not exactly be top of the list. But Clef really do some amazing products, the Soloist-50 is the amp and for £1,300, its bloody brilliant. It has an ability to do things that an amp at that value has absolutely no right to do so. It runs in pure Class A for the first 10W, then AB up to 50W but it has so much punch and drive you’d think it’s a 100 plus watt job. If it’s not the best amp under £3,000, I don’t know what is.
Also in the range is a phono stage, the Conductor-LP at £1,000 which again is mind-bendingly good, the people making these must HATE money because I’ve no idea how they have done it for such sensible money. It has a separate power supply and can be set up easily with both MC and MM cartridges.
They have a streamer as well which I am currently waiting to listen to and if its anything like the others – I can’t wait to hear it! Another other item they have is a rather interesting upgrade for any system which is the grounding unit they do, the Ground Zero Noise Filter. At £350 they are worth a try in any system small or large, it made the Soulution sound cleaner which I was very shocked by! You can stack them one at a time on top of each other to different items in the system and they actually work, surprisingly well!
Soulution has a very exciting new range out. The new 3 Series is here and once we have more details regarding pricing and other bits I shall let everyone know. The 330 integrated is now available with the 311 and 325 coming later this month.
All of these items will and should be on the website imminently, it’s that new we haven’t had a chance…mainly because I keep using them and can’t get over how nice they sound!
Lots more happening and going on but I will save that for the next newsletter!
Aha, before I sign off, I am also thinking of an event for maybe March time, if you guys fancy getting involved with suggestions and would like to see, hear or meet anyone in particular, please let me know. I am currently thinking of doing something with Graham Audio but your feedback, as always, would be greatly appreciated.
Anyhow, I hope you are all enjoying music and are healthy and well!
