McIntosh MC901 Dual Mono Amplifier







































































$35000 /pr


The MC901 is a monoblock amplifier that drives a single speaker. But it is unlike any other monoblock amplifier. What makes the MC901 so unique is that it's two amplifiers combined into one. Adding to the uniqueness is that each amplifier is of differing design philosophies: the MC901 consists of a 300 Watt vacuum tube amplifier attached to a 600 Watt solid state amplifier on one unified chassis.

Linear Tube Audio Microzotl Preamplifier

















































After years of refining and testing the microZOTL circuit, LTA has created the microZOTL Preamplifier. This is the highest expression of the patented microZOTL technology as both preamp and headphone amp in a rack-friendly form factor.

The microZOTL Preamplifier has a beautiful new low-resonance aluminum chassis and offers reference-level sonics through upgraded internal components, shorter signal path, larger power supply, and a digital control system with LED display.

Galibier Design The Eiger


























This is a completely new direction in turntables for Galibier, but by no means have we thrown out all we’ve learned through the years.

Here are some key features:

Magnetically tensioned rim drive –  fine adjustable tensioning system
Dual, 12″ tonearm capable with revised, sliding armboard architecture based on the Gavia and Stelvio Mk II
4Q controller (evolution of the Stelvio drive)
Modular drive system for ease of service
Gavia TPI© platter standard (Stelvio TPI© optional)
Identical bearing as the Stelvio


































Bearing Design

Features and Benefits:

Precision machining to air-bearing tolerances.  The  .800″ (20mm) diameter shaft means lower deflection and higher precision during the machining process.

Oil reservoir/chamber.  A central section of the bearing serves to damp stray bearing vibrations – slight as they may be.  Think of a plucked violin string whose maximum travel is at its midpoint.

Massive brass housing machined from 1.5″ (38mm) stock – contributes to vibration and heat dissipation.

Replaceable Delrin thrust plate and hardened steel ball for long life and low noise.  None of the “exotics” we’ve tried have convinced us to change this element.

Analog Audio Design TR-1000











































































































Here are explanations of the functions of the touch screen:

1) speed of rewind.

2) selection of the diameter of the reel hub: by calculate the length of the band from the diameter of the reel, the TR-1000 slows the speed towards the end (beginning) of the band in order not to damage the tape by putting it at high speed.

3) of speed: Band speed in inches per second.

4) timers / Locators: settings and use area of timers / locators.

5) " Rew + play ", when you buy a recorded tape, it is stored " already read ", which reduces the (Pre-Echoes) printing effects. Before Reading, you have to wrap the tape on an empty reel. This "Rew + play" does it automatically, the TR-1000 rewind the tape, slows down before the beginning, detect the band starts and launches the reading.

" all repeat when reading, when the end of the reel is reached (detection of the band starts), the TR-1000 rewind at the beginning and rereads the tape.

" tape tension automatically activate the tension of the tape, the red light shows whether the TR-1000 is ready for reading or functions.

"Auto play": this function program the TR-1000 so that it starts reading after one of the search operations (Zero Loc, loc, etc.). ).).).).).).).

" last play the tape will be set at the last reading or recording position.

" zero lộc the band will be positioned at location 0:00:00.0

6) Page de maintenance.

7) whether it is an internet connection with the TR-1000 is active, with external maintenance software allowing, for example, to download a new firmware.

8) Whether the remote control is active, any device capable of running an internet explorer (Android Tablet, phone, pc...) can control the TR-1000, no installation software needed...

9) Activate / off the detection of the trigger band, the red light shall indicate if the band is detected.

10) Equalisation NAB ou IEC.

11) High / Low Impedance Selection for each micro entry.

Bit & Beat BLUEAMP Op.6, No.1 "Gradevole"
























































































Driving circuit onsists of the most general and simple two-stage differential amplifier to match the output terminal, and uses a solid capacitor with excellent performance for significant voltage gain and feedback circuitry to maintain maximum linear characteristics even at low levels.

The current amplification terminal uses Mosfet with a small driving current and the bias circuit is designed with a stable bias by configuring an auto tracking circuit to cope with changes in temperature and conditions so as to be free from environmental influences.

The digital part prepared for the convenience of PC-Fi user is housed in a separate chamber so that it is not contaminated from jitter, and all connected signal lines are filtered and only sufficiently purified signal was processed to be connected to the amplifier.

A sufficient capacity transformer and a maximum speed regulation are configured and The power supply capacitors supplied to the amplifiers have been carefully selected to ensure sound quality and stability by adopting the proven audio capacitor.
