:: ROGUE AUDIO M-180 MONO POWER AMPLIFIER
For some time now, M-150 (150W) valve mono power amplifiers from Rogue Audio have been one of their best selling and best ‘value for money’ products. So, it came as a little surprise to see that an acclaimed performer of the kind could actually be improved on – both in terms of available power as well as noticeably improved overall sound. Well, yes, it was possible to achieve both goals and the outcome is the new M-180 mono power amplifier developing even healthier power output of 180 Watts per channel. Thanks to some creative changes in the power supplies and the main audio circuitry, the sound has become more dynamic and full bodied and also exhibits increased musicality and transparency. And – all this at a very small price differential relative to the already approachable cost of the M-150s.
The new Rogue Audio M-180 mono power amplifiers are shipping now and cost £5,495 inc VAT for a pair. Standard front panel finish continue be silver or black.
:: CONRAD-JOHNSON CAPACITOR UPGRADES
Conrad and Johnson never sleep! Always with good ideas how to make their products not only better, but longer lasting and maintaining their overall performance at the pinnacle of what can be achieved. So, only few weeks ago, conrad-johnson design introduced their “Capacitor Upgrade” program which provides all the necessary parts, mainly their latest proprietary Teflon (PTFE) audio and power supply capacitors. We are delighted to announce the new upgrade packages in the United Kingdom as well and welcome your enquiries about pricing for individual models as well as any other questions you may have.
Over the past few months, a number of Audiofreaks products received very favourable comments from various prominent UK audio reviewers. Freshly (and nicely) redesigned HIFI NEWS magazine wrote about the new Magnum Dynalab MD209 FM Receiver in their September 2009 issue (Steve Harris) and also about the Kuzma Stabi S-12 with the Stogi Reference 313 in the October 2009 issue (Steve Harris). The other prominent UK audio publication, HIFI+ which, interestingly enough, also underwent a thorough redesign under the leadership of its new editor Alan Sircom, reviewed the new Avalon Aspect loudspeakers (Roy Gregory) and Cardas Clear cables (Alan Sircom) in the, still current, July 2009 issue.
