Thank You For Visiting Our Website
Here we are again, chasing down the last quarter of the year and wondering how the time has flown by yet again. It seems only five minutes since our Reading show in March and already planning the next one early in the new year, I would love to be able to run one every six months but I think it would kill me! Anyway watch this space and I should be announcing the dates soon.
We have taken delivery of quite a few new products over the last months and none more eagerly received than the new versions of the Devialet, these have been very popular indeed and as is always the case with such products we have had a few networking issues but thankfully very few indeed. The forums are full of advice regarding this and it is great to see disruptive technology such as this coming of age although its not for everyone.
The year has been strong and getting better although we have been above target every month this year so I cannot complain, this has allowed me to keep investing in new demo products so that you get to hear these instead of relying on reviews – someone said to me recently that they were suspicious about reviews anyway and maybe some were biased, I am sure this isn’t the case and I will mention it the next time I am at the Ritz with HiFi Gizmo.
Thankfully there are fewer components with problems this year mainly due to the improved reliability of the new KT120 valve, I am looking forward to the newer KT150 valve when we get a chance to check it out I will update you with my thoughts.
So what else is new, well the Magico speakers are slowly drifting in and again I don’t think they will be for everyone but so far we have found them better than we expected, not cheap mind you but if you want the best in class then it’s a direction I think some will find beguiling.
Once again Harbeth speakers seem to be extremely popular and its great to see a classic British manufacturer doing so well, we have the full range on demo and always in demand with Naim owners.
One final note to apologize for my lack of communication recently, I was finally convinced by Carol to take 2 weeks off and relax a bit, since starting the business in late 2003 I have been working pretty much 7 days per week and taken no holidays for the past 6 years – I guess she had a point that I needed a break and I did find it beneficial.
Back to the grindstone then.
