MAX TOWNSHEND ROCK 7  

ONE OF THE BEST TURNTABLES A GIANT KILLER  ...!!

 

 


 

   

One of the world's most respected reviewers, Robert E Green,  has given The ROCK7 the most compelling review in The Absolute Sound magazine


 

  • "…….the Townshend Rock VII shows what remarkable results can be obtained, not by flinging mass and money at the problem, but by inspired engineering. And some of the sonic virtues of the Rock VII are otherwise unavailable elsewhere at any price. The trough rules!"

 prices : from 2650 euro

 MAX TOWNSHEND 

THE NEW !!  Excalibur II.....COMING SOON (estimated selling PRICE  4500 euro)


 The original Rock turntable, with its distinctive damping trough, was created at Cranfield University in the UK, but it was licensed by Townshend Audio, which has been building the iconic design ever since. The guys at Cranfield also designed an almost equally controversial tonearm, and over 30 years later Townshend is putting this into production under the sobriquet Excalibur II. It has ball-race bearings, but Townshend takes the opposite approach to every other 'arm maker and selects the loosest examples available in order that a medium-viscosity oil will cover every surface to avoid metal-to-metal contact. Max Townshend describes this as "a floating bearing."

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

prices from 2500euro  

 

 

 

 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
SET amps…

Dr. Gizmo. review !!!
