  1. Hi Clive, Have you received your power amp? I'm intrigued by how it sounds along with your new preamp and the Astors. I'm also looking for a good power amp or a couple of monoblocks right now. If I'm soon in Melbourne, I'll call to see if I can listen to your system. Cheers. Nico HULGICHAUDIO
  2. Item: HULGICHAUDIO MAESTRO MODEL Location: Adelaide - Andrews Farm Price: $5200 Item Condition: 9/10 Payment Method: Cash or bank transfer Local Pickup or within Australia (delivery not included in the price). Description: The Maestros's are 2 ½ way floor-standing loudspeaker. 37hz to 23 KHz / 90 dbs / 4 ohms Amazing sounding speaker with an impressive quick and punchy bass performance and an incredible midrange clarity and crystal clear highs. This new configuration allows us to increase the overall system sensitivity of the speaker to 90db which is also ideal for those with low wattage amplification. With two identical 6" midwoofer drivers, the effective radiation surface has been increased so that it surpasses that of a single 8" speaker. This allows the midwoofers to reproduce low frequencies with ease. Another benefit is that this also minimises distortion at high volume and ensures the same tonal character throughout the frequency range which ensures the listening experience is truly authentic. The Maestro cabinets have been designed with two identical internal chambers for each midwoofer driver. This allows more versatility for fine tuning the speakers to the listening room with the ability to close one or both ports if required. As a great conductor, the Maestro’s have the ability to command the most demanding pieces of music with grace and elegance. Their precise bass, mid-range naturalness and crystal-clear highs, combined with very low distortion and obsessive phase alignment between drivers, the Maestro model offers the listener an accurate, and palpable timbre reproduction. The Maestro loudspeaker has been optimised for a listening distance of 2.5 meters but in our testing, we discovered it is very forgiving and friendly to rooms of all sizes. The elegant, timeless look of this model, together with the possibility of choosing its finish, allows the Maestro model to adapt to a great variety of home decorations.

    http://www.hulgichaudio.com.au/ella.html Won "Best Sound Overall"at last year Stereonet International Show.
  5. We were to stay until 7 pm in the room doing private demonstrations (please no misunderstandings) and we sold one of Anthony's power amps, the Dukes, and almost all the interconnects and speaker cables that we had available. We can't complain.
  6. I would like to thank all those who have visited us in room 1311, I was fortunate to partner with Antony Holton and achieve great sound with his amplifiers. Our speakers sounded remarkably well, although sometimes our larger model could not expose its full potential in a small room. The Nina model also produced a great sound, but its image was not the best, since it was very laborious to move the Dukes from their position, but that decision allowed us to exchange from one system to another without major inconveniences. In general, we are very happy with the results and we hope to form a team in the future with Hulton Audio, since all together they worked without problems and setbacks. A special mention and thanks to Aaron Reynolds of Vero Vero Audio for the use of The Metrum Jade DAC. Also a big thank you to Marc Rushton and his great team for the organization of the Show. I do not even want to think about the amount of time and effort invested in organizing such an event. Very grateful for giving us the opportunity to show what we love to do.
  7. Hi mate, The new model sounds in some way very similar to that of Astor. But the new Satori drivers have brought a bit more transparency, especially in the mid-range. In size, the Dukes are a little more compact than the Astor's and their shape provides a very smooth and flat frequency response. We are very happy with the end result and we hope that they sound good in our room. Please come a visit us at the show.
  8. Been hearing to the Nina's today while selecting some music for the show. I thought I was hearing to Astor's for moments in regards to bass response. Impressive bottom end for a small 2 way speaker. Beautiful speaker for sure.
  9. Here you have a picture of the 2 prototypes that we have made for measurement purpose and final crossover design. We are very happy with the end result. I promise final product photos later on. Regards Nicolas Hulgich HULGICHAUDIO
  10. LDBT stands for Low Diffraction Baffle Technology
  11. It should be D for Distraction. Thank you for the correction Regards
  12. Hello Kanyin, Unfortunately we have not been able to test our new speakers with the system that Anthony will be presenting on this occasion. I know he's very busy finishing the final details of his new preamp and his dac, and he will also presenting new amplifiers as well. In the past we have tested their amplifiers and we liked them very much. We have no doubt that their new models will sound great too and we are looking forward to try them at the show.
  13. Hi mate, Not yet unfortunately. We are still working on the samples for the show. As soon as we have them ready I'll upload some photos. Stay tune! Regards. Nick HULGICHAUDIO
  14. Hello people, Very soon we will participating once again in the international high-fidelity show in Melbourne in conjunction with Holton Audio. In this opportunity we will be presenting two new models. One of them is "Nina", a very sophisticated 2-way model. The other model is "Duke", a three-way loudspeaker that replaces our successful Astor model as our high-end model. One of our objectives in the development of both models was to bring the application of our LDBT (low diffraction diffraction technology) to the limit, to guarantee the smoothest possible frequency response on axis and in a very wide off-axis area, both horizontally and vertically. To achieve this, all the angles and all the structural elements of the speaker enclosures have been carefully examined, as well as the selection of drivers and the crossover components used. As with the Ella MKII model, the LDBT in combination with our CST (coherent sound technology) were applied in both models with the objective of improving imaging and allowing a larger soundstage compared to the conventional speaker enclosures. The speaker box simply disappears and you are wrapped in a generous and pleasant sound experience. We hope to see you soon in Melbourne. You will find us again in room 1311. Best regards.

  15. Hello everyone I take the opportunity to thank all those who have come yesterday to the presentation of the Model Ella MKII. It was a great opportunity not only to show you a little what we do but to know you personally and also discover new music that is another of my passions. I am infinitely grateful for the hospitality that Tom and his wife Ewa have given me when they received me at their home, and I also extend my thanks to Steve who is always willing to help at all times. I hope you have liked what you heard and I wish to see you all again in other opportunity and show you more of what we do.
