New Sonus faber Venere range of loudspeakers.
A new Sonus faber model is always and event in itself - change is only made to substantially further the Sonus faber ideals. While the flagship models might only be aspirational for many of us, the fact that design elements from these speakers are now directly applied to their entry level models allows you to benefit from the history and expertise that is uniquely Sonus faber.
We've just got the new walnut finished models in stock -the surprisingly affordable Venere 1.5 - a classic compact two way design suitable for either stand or shelf mount - through to a pair rather fabulous floor-standers - the sumptuous spinding 2.5. The Venere range offers you something really special. Learn more here.
Which Well Tempered turntable is right for you?
Since the introduction of the Well Tempered Amadeus turnable around 4 years ago, WT Labs have expanded the range in both directions. The Simplex was introduced as an entry level version. The original Amadeus has enjoyed subtle revisions and upgrades and now with the introduction of the Symmetrex tonearm is officially MK2 . The better Amadeus GT has morphed into the GTA version - the acrylic plinth being replaced by a more massive and seriously engineered composite aluminium version. And now features the top of the line LTD/Symmetrex tonearm taking it's performance well beyond that of the standard Amadeus.
Equal to the Amadeus GTA at the top of the range, the new flagship model VERSALEX is also upgraded with the Symmetrex. The plinth is a 'Baltic Ply' - in other words just like that used in Shahinian speakers which has some rather nice acoustic and mechanical properties - it's finished in a handsome walnut veneer. The motor, platter and bearing may be identical to the Amadeus components but the Verselex has its own distinctive character.
"The Symmetrex tonearm has the unique feature of dynamic tracking. The centre of gravity of the tonearm assembly is well above the rotational pivot of the ball and the ball is immersed in approximately 30% in the damping fluid. When the stylus encounters heavy modulation in the grooves the increased drag causes the tonearm to rotate down thus gently increasing the tracking force maintaining a secure and stable condition for every cartridge" - William Firebaugh, Chief Engineer.

Quad Elite QSP amplifier
The Quad Elite QSP is the latest in the line of legendary Current Dumping amplifiers from the original 405 designed in 1975, made famous by the 606 and carried through several generations to the recently replaced 909. As soon as you see the QSP in the flesh, it's obvious that this amplifier means business - the new black finish, improved ventilation and obvious solidity make it clear that this is a seriously capable and powerful amplifier.
Todays Elite QSP (Quad Stereo Power amplifier) builds on all that has gone before and proves that a very good design not only stands the test of time, but with improved componentry and manufacture, can continue to maintain its exceptional reputation for both performance and value for money.Learn more here.
