ANOTHER AWARD 2012
AVID PULSARE II PHONO STAGE
AVID DIVA II SP
...one more 2012 award !!!
"The Diva II was certainly an absolute bargain at its
price point and punches well above its weight sonically, but listening to the
Diva II SP, it's easy to pick out the extra
sophistication and musical insight that the superior engineering has
brought about. Add in a versatile new power supply that will undoubtedly be
making its influence felt elsewhere, and you have a very fine vinyl
spinner indeed that promises high standard for the other forthcoming
"CONCLUSION: In many
ways, the Diva II struck me as sounding like a 'mini-Volvere' and, at a quarter
of the price of its bigger brother, but with far more than a quarter of the
performance, it deserves a hearty
VERDICT: Stylish, superbly
built turntable that turns in an emotive and highly musical
FOR: Solid, tuneful bass-fine
image depth - smooth, detailed top end - build quality,
AGAINST: Nothing at the price. "
- Adam Smith, Hi-Fi World
Known for his excellent taste in high-end audio, Russia's President Dmitry Medvedev has recently chosen the Acutus Reference SP turntable and Pulsare phonostage to head up an impressive audio system. Both these products have recently won the unreserved praises of the press and now, it seems, gets a Presidential seal of approval....
"There can be no questioning the
fine build and finish of this turntable ... The Volvere's combination
of composure, resolution and control works well on all types of music."
- Ketan Bharadia, WHAT
"...the thing that immediately stood out
with the Volvere was its exceptional rock-like stability; the
music sounded solid and focused ...the Volvere gets close to that
impossible ideal - closer than you've any right to expect given the
crudeness of a stylus tracing a wobbly groove in a bit of plastic."
- Jimmy Hughes, hi-fi+
"VERDICT: A high end
turntable of rare completeness, it offers breathtaking all round
sound from a superbly balanced belt drive
FOR: superb stability; glassy transparency;
breathtaking dynamics; unerring musicality; design, packaging,
- David Price HiFi World (on the Avid Volvere Sequel)
"The Sequel is among the best I have (not)
heard- the almost zero level groove noise and distortion ...
Extreme dynamics as well as a gorgeous midrange are the aural highlights of this
turntable. The Avid is a superb example of English 21st Century
craftsmanship and design. Conrad Mas is to be congratulated for his
passion and commitment to excellence in vinyl reproduction. Yes, the bloom is
definitely on this rose."
It is with great pleasure that we award
to the Avid Volvere Sequel Turntable. Congratulations! -
Group test: Avid Pulsus - Bel Canto Phono
3VB - Clearaudio Balance+ - Pathos InTheGrove MkII - Roksan Reference - Simaudio
"Best in value is, hands-down, the
Avid Pulsus...Avid's Pulsus is the hair-shirt
choice for audiophiles who only care about performance. The Pulsus is
simply a bargain!"
Ken Kessler, HiFi News Magazine, November 2012
"Here is a super £1,000 phono
stage. In an already cut-throat group the Avid Pulsus comes straight "
- David Price, HiFi World, awarded 5 out of 5
into the top five...it's the personification of power and passion in a market
that doesn't have enough of it... Delivers a complete sense of self belief that
made it a hoot to hear

The new AVID Pulsus is the distillation
of the experience gained during the development of AVID's ultra-high performance
$6,000 Pulsare Phono Stage. Pulsus is a single-ended, dual-mono two-box preamp;
a true high-end design with outstanding performance and build quality at an
The AVID Pulsus offers three gain settings
(48dB/60dB/70dB) in a Moving Magnet and Moving Coil phono preamp. The outboard
power supply helps to keep the noise-floor as low as possible and distortion
across the audio spectrum is virtually immeasurable. It offers impressive
headroom, great dynamics, tremendous amounts of detail, and a rich, warm
midband that make music sound more true-to-life; all characteristics common to
AVID's entire line of award-winning products. The Pulsus mates well with any
cartridge and its sonic signature can be defined very simply: It's the natural
sound of musical instruments in their original recording space.
The Pulsus is built in the UK with high-specification
internal components and to an exceedingly high level of quality. Inputs and
outputs are both gold-plated RCAs. Gain, resistance and capacitance selections
are all easily made from the underside of the chassis, offering exceptional
flexibility and ease of use.
A passive RIAA (with Neumann HF correction) circuit using
audiophile-grade capacitors helps maintain linearity of reproduction; and its
external, regulated power supply provides refined power to causing this to have
a vanishing low noise levels. You will be shocked to hear so much more
micro-detail from all of your LPs when using the Pulsus.
Passionately manufactured within AVID's own facilities,
everything from PCB assembly, testing and quality control to the high-quality
casework, all ensure a long lasting, reliable phono stage. The Pulsus is a
stunning achievement! Our highest recommendation

The Model 88 has been in the prestigious list of Stereophile Class A Recommended Components for more than 6 years. It also won several awards all over the world, including the Hi-Fi News Industry Award for Best Valve Amplifier Innovation. The third generation was released with the largest set of improvements and options that reinforce its recognized differential.
THE NEW MASTERGROOVE FROM TOM EVANS
The Mastergroove phono stage is the next big leap in evolution beyond the G+SRX. The front end gain stages have 50% less noise and distortion and twice the dynamic range compared to the G+SRX, all signal path resistors are Vishay 0.1 % tol and 15ppm tempco. Each stage of gain is powered by a Lithos 7 class a local voltage regulator, both left and right channel local voltage regulators are supplied by my higher powered Lithos 6 regulators, in all 14 pcb's. We even went to the trouble of designing and winding 'in house' a new 200va low flux transformer with an electrostatic screened primary winding to dramatically reduce RF entering the power supply. Nine values per / ch of cartridge loading resistor settings are provided with dip switches on the rear panel. MM (and Decca ) versions can be built to order.

NEW AUDION 300B SILVER NIGHT ANNIV
OCELLIA EL 34 amp
OCELLIA new upgrade models
This $10,000 speaker is a bargain compared to other $10,000 speakers I
recently heard, and I believe it is superior to the Tannoy
Churchill's which cost about $5K more, ARE available in stores, but
do not have alnico magnets
This is an important work of audio art. I wonder of how many of you will have
the courage to experience it, and discover what you don't know about your DHT
