Raven Black Night and Avantgarde Zero 1 win Golden Ear 2014 awards
21 August 2014

Click on image to read the full article ...TW Acustic Black Night Record Player

The Black Night is celebrated German turntable-designer Thomas Woschnick's statement product, and it is superior in every sonic regard to the gorgeous-sounding Raven AC-3 I reviewed several years ago. Where the Raven AC was the master of steady-state tone and decay - sounding spectacularly gorgeous on just about any LP - the Black Night adds speed of attack, toe-tapping pace, even higher resolution, and simply awesome bass definition and impact to the package, making for a presentation that is still staggeringly beautiful ...

Audience 1+1 speaker wins The Absolute Sound Golden Ear 2014 Award
18 August 2014

Click on image to read the full article ...It is our pleasure to share with you this new award for the Audience 1+1 Personal Reference Monitors.

The Audience ClairAudient 1+1 ranks as my current favorite desktop near field loudspeaker. When fed a high quality source, the ClairAudient 1+1 completely disappears while creating a nuanced three-dimensional soundstage.

Efficient enough to be driven by a moderately powered amplifier, the 1+1s are dynamically agile, and have good bass extension for their size.

If you think that miniature speakers in desktop setup only create a miniature soundstage, ... [ » more ]
Reviewer comments on STILLPOINTS’ Products
23 July 2014

Click on image to read the full article ...ROBERT HARLEY STILLPOINTS’ QUOTES

Reviewing the Ultra SS:
“I replaced the hefty stock Focal spikes with Stillpoints Ultras, sat back, and was shocked by what I heard. With the Stillpoints, the soundstage opened up with greater width, depth, and bloom around images. The sound became even more detached from the loudspeakers, with a greater solidity of images between and around the Focals …
… The bass improved to a similar degree. The bottom end became tauter, better defined, and cleaner. The Stillpoints made the midbass a bit leaner, but more articulate. The ... [ » more ]

We have updated some of the TW ACUSTIC product pages with new and high quality photographs. The turntables pages are Raven Black Night, Raven AC, Raven One, Raven GT.

AESTHETIX - new product range
As the appointed distributor for AESTHETIX brand of fine audio products, we would like to introduce Rhea and IO (Tube Phono Stage), Atlas (Power Amplifier, Saturn Series). More products will be featured, watch this space.
Harmonic Resolution Systems Isolation Bases
The Harmonic Resolution Systems isolation bases are a primary element for significantly reducing structural borne noise in any audio or video component. The isolation bases (M3X, S1, R1) are designed to be used in a wide range of environments and provide excellent performance and maintenance free operation. All our isolation bases can be used directly on the floor, in an existing audio stand, on standard furniture, or in one of Harmonic Resolutions Systems high performance frame systems.
REED Tone arms (2A, 2P, 3Q)
We are proud to introduce three models of our Reed tonearm: Reed 3Q, Reed 2P and Reed 2A. Reed 3Q - the newest and most technically advanced tonearm model. Integrated laser helps to adjust VTA (precision +/- 0.1 mm) and azimuth (precision +/- 0.25 deg) very quickly and precisely. Reed 2P model is dedicated for audiophiles who do not trust to various setup rules and prefer to adjust their system based on their senses. Reed 2A is for customers, who have fixed audio setup and just want to listen for the perfect sound.
Miyajima Monaural Phono Cartridges
The Miyajima Laboratory monaural cartridges use their patented "vertical axis concentration method" to faithfully reproduce the musical information in the record grooves and thus achieve the distinctive quality of sound that Miyajima Laboratory is now famous for. In fact, Miyajima makes the bold claim that a mono LP has potential for better sound quality than a stereo LP!
Ortofon TA-110 Tone Arm
The TA-110 is given a precision machined slit in the middle of the aluminium tube. A piece of Ortofon's special vibration damping rubber is inserted into the slit. An armtube without slit and rubber damper is symmetrical in a vertical and lateral plane with respect to vibrations. The slit breaks this symmetry, and mounting the rubber insert gives the desired damping.
Miyajima Kansui Moving Coil Phono Cartridge
The lastest top model from Miyajima is another truly ground-breaking cartridge, then we believe Miyajima has more than achieved their aim and created another winner! Due to certain changes in the new design, the compliance of the cantilever is higher than the Shilabe and consequently the recommended tracking force is now lighter at 2.25g. More details here.
Leben RS-100 Line Pre-amplifier
Mr Taku Hyodo of Leben Hifi has created another new masterpiece. The new Leben RS-100 pre-amplifier, it is now in store now. The line-stage pre-amplifier has tube rectification and uses point to point wiring which is detailed and done with great. The line Amplifier Circuit consists of special selected Dual-Triode Tube 6CG7 (General Electric/USA) by SRPP system to improve high-frequency range of the sound, and can supply a strong signal of 52V to the power amplifier.
Introducing a new range of products from fo.Q
fo.Q’ is a material developed with the support of JST (Japan Science and Technology Agency). Vibrational energy is converted to electric energy, and finally to heat energy, enabling efficient absorption. There are no rubber or heavy metal overtones, and efficient attenuation of the finest vibrations, considered difficult to remove up to now, promise you the purest and clearest tones. The material can be applied on different products.

Products include: disk stabilizer (DS-25), audio boards (AB-4045, SB-2025), insulators (G-53F, G-51), tuning materials (SH-22, SH-21, TA-102, TA-52, PA-01), accessories for analog player (RS-5D, RS-912, RS-55)
