Hulgich Audio is a speaker manufacturer based in Adelaide and one that is gaining an international reputation for its affordable audiophile quality models.

StereoNET recently reviewed the Hulgich Serenade speaker and were charmed by its effortless yet revealing sound. During that review Nicholas Hulgich spoke about the new Ella Mk2 and months later, the details have now emerged.

The Ella Mk2 may be just the ticket for all those seeking full frequency sound from a medium-sized speaker. Hulgich says the Ella offers a dynamic contrast and harmonic expression of a much larger speaker but within a modest size.

Hulgich speakers, including the Ella Mk2 will debut at the Melbourne International HiFi Show, driven by the UK’s Nord Acoustics pre and power amplifiers and connected by handmade Hulgich's new FTM Feel The Music cables.

FTM’s cables are the result of research into components that can interact in a harmonious and natural way but also capable of delivering the most lifelike sound quality.

Many materials were tested before FTM settled on silver plated copper. The result is now a range of affordable FTM cables with their involving non-fatiguing sound.
