  1. those amps have way more powerful than what you require for the Astor's on any room. Nice photos Cheers. Nick HULGICHAUDIO
  2. Sorry to jump in but I wanted to clarify a bit the theme of the Nord Acoustic amps. They use Ncore technology that is very different from UCD version. If there is something in which the amplifiers stand out it is in control (no matter the speaker impedance since they are 2 ohms stable), and natural transparency. It is not surprising to see currently super hi systems using this NCore technology, such as in the Ki Speakers, Mola Mola amps , Kyron speakers, BelCanto, Merrill Audio, Merrill, and Nad amplifiers to name a few. The Nord NC500 SE Monos and Power amp top model have an Input Buffer Board with high end discrete Sparkos Labs Voltage Regulators and a choice of selecting what type of sound you prefer by choosing between 2 Op Amps options (Sonic Imagery and the Sparkos - both run in full Class A). There many reviews about this amps but here is one I've found yesterday: http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews2/nord/1.html By the way their preamp is designed based on proven Abrahamsen technology the founder and designer of Electrocompaniet: https://www.nordacoustics.co.uk/product-page/nord-one-pre-a-pre-amplifer-black Happy new year to all of you Regards.

It Is in impeccable condition, and have been running the Astors which are a 2.8 ohms lowest impedance without any problems. Asking price: $1000 aud + delivery. Technical specs (info from Cattylink) One additional transformer added to the first stage Higher control ability and more delicate sound 2 elegant precision VU meters 900VA square ac transformer made of audio grade silicon steel Filter capacitance increased to 160000uF Nover (UK) Class A parallel voltage rectification - 2 sets for each channel Fast recovery diodes and Philips audio use triodes Sanken C4883/A1859 employed for voltage regulation A total of 12 pairs C5200/A1943 for power output stage Heat sink design same as the expensive JA100 Luxury Edition Excellent sonic performance, remarkable craftsmanship Fully balanced, fully symmetrical non -ve feedback circuit Fully sheathed and anti-shock aluminium alloy case Detachable power cord system (IEC) Power Output: 80W per channel (Pure Class A, RMS 8ohms) THD: ≤ 0.05% (1kHz/W pre/power balanced output) S/N Ratio: ≥ 100dB (A weighted) Frequency Response: 20Hz - 20kHz (±0.8db) Input Impedance: 100Kohms Output Impedance: 4 - 8 ohms DIMENSIONS: 438mm×430mm×135mm WxDxH Front panels of all JungSon Luxury Edition equipment are made from extreme class stainless steel undergone multiple polishing techniques with remarkable craftsmanship, which makes it everlastingly mirror-shine and stunningly attractive.
  5. HULGICHAUDIO_Technology

    Hello everyone, We have just inaugurated a new section on our website: http://www.hulgichaudio.com.au/technologies.html In which we explained some of the processes and technologies we apply to develop our speakers. We try to make it simple and graphic so that you can see a little more of what we do in HULGICHAUDIO to develop our HI-End products. I also took the opportunity to greet you all and thank you for the posivive comments we have received lately. Best regards Nicolas Hulgich HULGICHAUDIO
  6. Very happy that you like our room. Regards. Nicolas Hulgich HULGICHAUDIO
  7. It has been a year of hard work and sacrifice and your words help us move forward and continue to believe in our project. Best regards Nicolas Hulgich HULGICHAUDIO
  8. I can't agree more with what you've said
  9. Hi everyone, I take the opportunity to greet and to thank all those who have visited us this weekend at the International HIFI show. Although we had some problems in trying to optimize the room for the event but with some acoustic panels that we took with us to the event, we believe we have managed to present a decent sound and we hope that you have been able to appreciate it. We have worked very hard to arrive in time to present our new models Maestro and ELLA MKII since many measurements and extensive voicing tests have passed to achieve what we consider a balanced sound. Once again we thank you and we hope to see you soon at a new opportunity. Best regards. Nicolas Hulgich HULGICHAUDIO
  10. An afternoon with Nick Hulgich

    Hi Rick, I am very happy to know that you have liked my speakers so much. The truth is that we had a great time that day and as a bonus I was unexpectedly fortunate to count on your professional services as a photographer for some shots I needed. One of my favourite hobbies is to discover new music that serves me as well as for speaker demonstrations or just to enjoy in my leisure time. And I must say that thanks to your varied and exquisite musical taste I have discovered new artists both local and international and thank you for that too. The doors are open for when you decide to come back on any other opportunity. Best regards. Nick HULGICHAUDIO

    Hi guys, thank you for your comments. It took time to develop the Astor's but we are very happy with the the end result. Many speaker drivers were tested to find a sound that invites you to listen and enjoy music no matter what style you prefer. The Astor's are the result of the synergy not only found through the many parts that compose them, but it is also the result of an arduous teamwork with a clear goal: great sound, good aesthetic presence, at a price achievable for anyone who is serious about music reproduction
  12. Hi Joz, The new Astor model is a ported version. The white one is the previous transmission line version. After some testing we decided to go ported as the sound came out cleaner and richer than the transmission line option. The lower mid range also got benefited with this new modification. Pretty soon will be presenting the "Maestro" model which is a a great sounding 2 1/2 way model. Best regards. Niolas Hulgich HULGICHAUDIO
  13. Ji Joz, Very glad you liked them. It has taken us a lot of time and dedication to develop this model but we have already begun to see the fruits of such an effort. In a few days Stereonet will finalise the review, so stay tuned! Best regards. Nicolas Hulgich HULGICHAUDIO
  14. Why are so many Oz speakers invisible?

    Hi guys, Sorry to jump in, but as new kid in the block I would like to share with you a little of how we work to develop our products. I want to ask you for forgiveness if by any chance I make some orthographic error or I express in an unclear way since English is not my native language. As for our website, I apologize for not having the necessary time at the moment to finish it as we are about to launch 2 new models, and probably presenting some other new products. The development of a new product unfortunately requires many hours of work testing drivers of different materials, selecting the best frequency that these drivers are able to reproduce with the least possible distortion and then choose the best phase integration between drivers. Test boxes are developed and then tested all over again to determine the volume and performance of these drivers to the chosen box design. If something we see can be improved, it goes back to the board to develop or adjust the new model and retests. Once we are satisfied with the results we design the final boxes and develop the first crossover. Rarely the final crossover comes out of the first attempt since it requires hours of voicing to determine what we consider a good integration between components, as well as the sound characteristics we consider as balanced, neutral and natural. The contribution of Gorn Nireus (our sound ingeneer) is decisive because with its more than 30 years of experience a high-end product is achieved that has nothing to envy to the most recognised hi-end international brands. The main difference that separates us from the leading Hi-End audio brands is their marketing capacity to win the market and attention. Personally I consider that much more is gained by buying directly from the designer since the client can not only choose the desired finishes and choose a preferable brand component for the crossover but also has the information first hand of the product characteristics and how to obtain the best sound result possible for a given room.
  15. Serenade measurements

    Hi Marc, they are Hulgichaudio design. We do the fronts with the wood you like as well, matching the loudspeaker wood if prefer. Unfortunately we can't make any cent from them but we think they are good match for the Serenades.
