Yeah I think I like it. I was undecided on this too but think I like this as well. Pity the reviews on sound aren't very positive.

Hello folks,   I built these BR1s for my youngest daughter and we exhibited them at the last HiFi Show in Melbourne in late 2019 before she took possession. They are built from natural timbe

Nice looking BBQ ???

Oh yeah, loving those, the KEFs sure make the old chrome end Gale 402s look tame.

IMHO at least it's a vast improvement of his PHOS CD player from the late 80's / early 90's.

It actually doesn't look too bad in the photo, but if you saw it in the flesh.....I saw a Black version of this at a HiFi show, looked really rough with silver riveting holding the case together.

This is relative to other massive pre pros with its 2ru height but the Acurus muses anodised black satin fascia and multi coloured display is pretty unique :) And why cant other pre pros have a classy easy to read white back panel ?

Weighing in at 283kg, the Fischer & Fischer flagship. Forbidding Teutonic monoliths in dark slate can to be gorgeous. image.png.a0c4b09a3d100f9296132181848a1145.png

Love the look of these, though not really keen on the faceplate.

Faceplates/baffles catering for large AMT tweeters often look a bit odd to me.

I visited Addicted to Audio in Newtown (Sydney) and they've moved their existing stock further back into the store, and dedicated the front room to Naim and Focal. I thought the new Naim units looked good in magazines but it looks even better in person.

 

I did take this picture to show my wife, test the waters for a future purchase etc ... She gave me permission to sell a kidney to purchase. I'm thinking about it.

Quite like the new Sonus Faber Maxima Amator. But the Strad is still the king. 35th anni edition.

Was able to get hands-on with one recently. Went to a mate's house who had just had one delivered and tested it alongside a Lumin T2 I'd borrowed, his old Mytek Brooklyn Bridge and my trusty RME ADI-2 FS.

 

This piece of kit is utterly beautiful in finish and a brilliant performer.

I owned a stainless steel Phos for a while, definitely form over function but I still think it’s a gorgeous looking thing, especially from side on.

Yeah, the plain stainless steel version doesn't look that weird NOW, compared to some designs from others that came after it........But the Black version just looked sort of cobbled together, almost like a prototype, which I thought it was originally.

Dieter Rams was there first!

< braun classic stereo’s from the 60s and 70s

Welcome to the world of Braun audio. Many design orientated people love the high quality audio systems from Germany’s top manufacturer Braun, Frankfurt. Braun stereo’s from the 60s were the compact models audio 1, audio 2, audio 250 and audio 300 in heavy metallframes, designed by well-known Dieter Rams. The last model of this series was the searched after Braun audio 310, brought to market in 1971. This combination of turntable and radio receiver with additional inputs for CD and streaming are highly searched after by braun fans and collectors, especially in mint condition, technically reviewed and capable of full function. >

“Snow White’s coffin” is almost surgical in its execution. Brilliant.

The Resolution Audio Cantata series were cool looking bits of kit with their fish scale effect aluminium casing

The Mytek Manhattan DAC is also a good looking bit of kit

Chord amps for me provided a 180 degree change.

I used to hate the look of them, but now love them! Must be old age!

I always wanted one of their DACs , just for looks alone, is the top plate rough to the touch or smooth like it appears in second photo.?

Wouldn't know, haven't encountered 1 in the wild. Don't know if the brand was distributed in Australia.

 

The units are quite expensive..

Found a review ; lovely machined and tooled - no silk screen fake here 👌

The hammered Resolution Cantata twins literally do things upside down. Pop those carved-from-solid covers with their gloriously scalloped textures from Neal Feay's famous Santa Barbara machine shop and watch covers become bases. All innards mount to their chunky tops to hang down like ripe fruit. The real bases merely keep dust out and add footers. Smart. And that—smart—becomes a leit motif as one takes the tour. Including looking smart. Very smart!
