  1. Further information: Extra long 5m pair, factory-terminated with special gold-plated Siltech spades. As new in individual boxes with certificate of authenticity and beautifully made. Current model featuring Siltech's non-degrading high purity mono-crystal copper conductors protected by a high tech jacket using dual-layer Kapton film and Teflon insulation. With this cable Siltech aimed to produce the lowest possible distortion in its class. At current RRP of $3150 this pair represents a bargain-priced entry into one of the world's most respected cable brands, especially for someone needing
  2. Further information: 1.0m XLR interconnects from Siltech's Classic Anniversary Series, celebrating 25 years making high end audio cables with the introduction of G7 silver gold alloy conductors. As new in box and guaranteed genuine from the official importer. Up to their local RRP of $1595 (US $1100) I have not experienced a more natural cable, with plenty of detail and transparency but still sweet sounding. A well balanced model, typical of Siltech cables in general. Donation to SNA on sale. Photos: PLEASE READ If you include any reference to pricing
  3. Are these definitely the "Unlimited Ultimate" which were available in a choice of high gloss finish? The photos look more like my first pair of GPs, the "Limited 11", which were only available in slate grey.
  4. Good question, but as far as I understand it had more to do with Roon licensing arrangements and Vitus comparability with their update. As with many high end amplifier manufacturers, the onboard streamer was OEM, while of course the amp section was the same as my unit, pure Vitus. Disappointing for owners and for Vitus, but there is no suggestion that the onboard streamers were faulty. I assume that Vitus will release an updated streamer section some time down the track after learning from their experience with Roon.
  5. Further information: Anyone interested in this model will already know its impact on the high end audio industry. I bought a new unit from the importer a few weeks ago. Having been blown away with the cost-performance of its forerunner in the Reference Series, the RI-100, and knowing that the RI-101 mk2 has been reviewed as a bigger upgrade from the RI-101 than the RI-101 was from the RI-100, I realised that this model is likely to be a game changer for many years to come. Performance ridiculously close to the magnificent $60K SIA-030!! Feedback from a couple of experienced owners reinforced
  6. Further information: Neptune is the most popular model in Purist's wide range, offering great cost-performance for a high end cable with typical sweetness, large soundstage and subtle definition. They are the top model with proprietary fluid dampening for warmth and exquisite midrange, single copper crystal conductors and upgraded beryllium copper RCA connectors. This pair is the current Luminist Revision, like new in original packaging and guaranteed genuine from the importer. At almost one third of $3300 RRP, they are a bargain.

  7. Missed out on the pair just sold on SNA?
  8. Are the tweeter domes OK? If so, these are great speakers for the price. Speaker tastes are personal, but if you appreciate the ambience produced by rear-firing drivers in "bipolar dispersion", they are exceptional.
  9. Further information: This rare amplifier model is the only one Sonus Faber ever made. It was used to test their speakers, so obviously is a superb match for anyone with SF speakers on the upgrade path. It's also an interesting option for someone simply chasing an amplifier that is able to convey the emotion of a performance in a life-like and involving way, without any trace of artificial aggression or soundstage limitation. It embodies the Sonus Faber philosophy of placing sheer musicality above all other aspects, such as rated power output and other specifications, or the number of features.

  11. Beautiful! I appreciate the idea of potentially avoiding a separate preamp, interconnects and power cable, with an overall huge cost saving and more direct signal path. For someone whose priority is serious vinyl, this might offer great value. By the way, is that a Boulder 1060 in the background?
