Introducing The Chord Hugo TT, Can't Wait To Try This!

Hi All, It has certainly been a busy CES this year but the product that has got me the most excited is the new Chord Hugo TT, basically a desktop Hugo, what more could you want :-) We are big fans of the Hugo here and this really is a product that a lot of people have been waiting for as I know of some people that have been replacing their expensive DAC’s in their main HiFi’s and replacing them with the portable Hugo as the DAC section really is something quite special, so now with this Deskt

Nice, The New HiFiMan HE-1000 Headphones and EF-1000 Amplifier!

Hi All, Another new announcement from CES, HiFiMan have announced their new reference headphones and amplifier, the HE-1000 and EF-1000, details are very sparse at the moment other than both are totally new designs with the headphones being Planar Magnetic design again, I’m guessing they will be tough to drive like the current HE-6’s but speaking from experience, once you get them working they really are a fantastic headphone., I think these are quite a while off yet from general release but

My M100 and its Bubble!

Hi Guys, Just thought that I would upload a few pictures of my recently purchased S2 M100, unfortunately it failed its MOT last week so is going back in later this week to get it sorted. Yesterday I setup the Carcoon Veloce in the metal garage I had built a few weeks ago for the Elan to live in as I have now found out that a metal garage really isn't a great idea especially where condensation in involved, I went in the garage the other day and the while bodywork had a layer of condensation

Devialet Phantom, How Cool Is This!

Hi All, A real quick post before Christmas, I was hoping to blog this a week ago when announced but we were just too busy so most of you are probably aware of it, but I have to admit that it has been a long time since a product has been announced that has got that WOW factor that just makes you want one, step forward the Devialet Phantom, the new all in one speaker from Devialet that includes their ADH technology combining class A sound quality with Class D amplification.

Arcam FMJ P49 + FMJ C49 Now On Demo, Taking It To The Next Level!

Hi All, Another quick blog to say that we now have Arcam’s new flagship FMJ P49 2 channel power amplifier on demo along with their new FMJ C49 Pre-amplifier. It has certainly been a busy year for Arcam with them releasing products right up to the end of the year, lucky for us everyone has been a winner but for me after spending quite a lot of time listening to their A49 integrated amp based on Arcam’s Class G amplification it has been the P49 that I have been really waiting for. I am no

Introducing The Astell&Kern AK500N, Something Very Different!

Hi All, I found out about this product a couple of weeks ago and was firstly really surprised to hear that Astell&Kern, known for their highend portable products, would be entering the highend audio market, secondly I was really surprised by the price at £8999, this was going to have to be really good. Luckily for me, the Astell&Kern distributors in the UK, Computers Unlimited, had the only model in the UK and unbelievably they kindly agreed to lend it to me to play with and have a

Arcam Solo Bar and Solo Sub Now On Demo!

Hi All, Just a quick message to say that we now have the Arcam Solo Bar and Solo Sub on demo, I have to admit that sound bars have never really been something to get me too excited but as I am a bit of an Arcam fan when they announced the Solo Bar and matching sub I actually found myself looking forward to having a play. Also I have to say that since we launched just over 2 years ago I don’t think I have had a product that has had so much interest, with the phone ringing and a lot of demo’

Trilogy 931 Headphone Amplifier Now On Demo!

Hi Everyone, I guess its fair to say that we have a few headphone amps on demo, all are great but we really do have a special like for the Trilogy 933 headphone amp, so once we heard there was going to be a cheaper version we couldn’t wait to get it on demo, well yesterday the Trilogy 931 was delivered, the first in the country, needless to say that it doesn’t disappoint.

Hi All, We are big fans of Bursons range of headphone amplifiers at Highend Headphones so when they release a new headphone amp we sit up and take notice, basically the Conductor Virtuoso replaces the Conductor headphone amp which also acted as a DAC and Preamplifier with the Virtuoso offering the same functions. Burson has significantly upgraded and refined previous generations of the Conductor. There are now a 100-steps of volume control with a new, easy-to-read display. When the Conduct

Copland Come To HiFi Lounge, At Long Last!

Hi All, Its a strange one this as when we were planning to setup HiFi Lounge, around 2.5 years ago, I asked my web designer to add Copland as a brand and we’d activate it once I have my demo stock as I was always planning to bring Copland on as one of my first brands, not really sure what happened but for some reason I never got round to it, well at long last I am really pleased that we can now activate Copland on our website as I now have part of my demo stock in the building with their beau

A New Home For The Elan!

Hi All, What with the imminent arrival of the LF1 next week and the recent acquisition of a M100 Elan and only having one garage it has been a race against time to get a new garage put up, I looked at several ideas but in the end went for a Murryhill 17x12 as at the moment we are in rented property so didn't want anything too permanent, in the end after the effort required to put it up I think a wooden solution may have been a better idea. Luckily I found some great guys who put it up, the

Introducing The New Trilogy 931 Headphone Amplifier!

Hi Everyone, One of our favourite headphone amps is the Trilogy 933, with its pure single ended Class A design it really does take some beating when it comes to out and out sound quality, the only drawback we can see is that at £1995 it isn’t going to be for everyone, well the good news is that Nic Poulson of Trilogy realises this so he has been working on the 931, which is basically a cut down version of the 933 without the external power supply and is designed without compromise to get as c
