Western Electric 300B tube heaven!


Wow!!! Our friends at Living Voice/Definitive Audio have found some W.E.’s! "When we were asked if we could find a matched quad of W.E. 300B’s we discovered that we had more than we had realised. These are all early to mid 1990’s vintage and all have had some use, but a lot of them took early retirement due to the luxury of plentiful supply and a small dose of profligacy. Most are very healthy with plenty of life in them. Spent the last couple of days measuring and matching them into pairs. Quite a task, but hey, time is plentiful at the moment."

New Aqua Acoustic Quality LinQ network interface


New Aqua Acoustic Quality LinQ network interface... "The new LinQ was created following a precise idea. Fast and standard technical solutions do not belong to the aqua philosophy. aqua has developed an extremely streamlined long-life platform and network bridge modules, focused on audio playback functions. We prefer to use know-how developed in-house, for a number of reasons in respect the aqua SQ standards. This has required a considerable effort in terms of time and resources, but the result is immediately evident on first use."

Albedo Silver Cables BFT pure silver bananas production


Some snaps from the Albedo Silver Cables BFT Bananas production line, their recent and most wanted product. Two versions of BFT are either for OEM or for their own cables confection. In the first step after the right size mono-crystal is sourced the ribbon bar is prepared and ready for cutting. The Punching machine takes care of having the silver metal BFA connectors punched out of the sheet. The second step after the mono-crystal silver BFA connectors are punched out of the sheet, they are going to the automated Crimper which gives them a final shape and hardens the plug radius to make it springy.

Albedo Silver Cables production


A sneak peek at the Albedo Silver Cables production... "Today we are making silver wires for our Blue range cables. This is how the process is looking like. BLUEs are a rectangular solid core type of cables. This basic interconnect in our offer is characterized by high universality and clearness which makes it a valuable part of numerous audio systems. Dynamics and contour of the particular instruments’ sound are without questions the cable’s biggest advantages. “Blue” uses silver wires with square gauge placed parallel to each other."
