REL Acoustics - New line for 2019
We are very pleased to be an authorized dealer of the entire REL Acoustics line. Though they are classified as a manufacturer of "Subwoofers," they are, in fact, really are more of a speaker enhancement product.
What I mean is that when a REL subwoofer is incorporated into a system, whether a two channel set up or home theater, REL subs have an influence on the entire frequency range. The bass gets tighter and defined, the midrange more accurate and proportioned, and the highs more extended and airy. And, the seamlessness of these attributes is what is most noticeable. Arguably the best thought out sub system on the market to date.
REL subwoofers are very complementary to most systems, and are sometimes dismissed for being in the subwoofer category of speakers. But their approach is highly unique compared to others out there.
We are especially impressed with the Carbon Limited, and the more affordable T/9i - both pictured below.
Please inquire about which REL would be the right match for your set up. Based on your main speakers, room size, and application, we can pinpoint the right model to add to your system to take things to the next level.
AudioQuest - new line for 2019
Audioquest has established themselves as the largest producer of aftermarket specialty cables worldwide. While their basic offerings can be found in big box retailers such as Best Buy and Walmart, they also have higher end products that can integrate with the most cutting-edge systems.
Their new line of signal cables (interconnects, speaker cables, etc.) are being received with great enthusiasm, and now they have introduced a fantastic array of super-effective power cords and powerline products designed by the renowned Garth Powell.
Their Niagara 1000 Power conditioner, combined with their HC Thunder power cord is one of my personal favorite combinations. With that said, we anxiously await the replacement for the Niagara 1000, in the Niagara 1200.
From the Manufacturer:
"Much like the Niagara 7000, the Niagara 1000 uses ultra-low resistance solid-core wiring optimized for low-noise directionality, capacitor forming technologies that vastly improve linearity and minimize distortion, and low impedance AC inlet and outlet contacts with heavy silver plating over high-purity Beryllium Copper for superior noise dissipation. Similarly, Niagara 1000 features our non-sacrificial surge protection, Zero Ground-Contamination Technology, and over-voltage shutdown, ensuring that your customers’ A/V systems are thoroughly protected from AC surges and spikes."
Thunder High Current, Low-Z / Noise-Dissipation 3-Pole AC Power Cable

HRS (Harmonic Resolution Systems) - Racks and Isolation products
HRS represents the pinnacle in performance in the category of Equipment racks and Isolation products. We've long been impressed with the SXR and MXR racks for their effectiveness in isolation, as well as their sheer beauty.
Commonly used as a system, with the objective of achieving the greatest level of component isolation, they recently introduced their new Vortex Footers. The Vortex footers come either in a fixed, or adjustable height, allowing for a very high level of adjustability while still maintaining the highest level of isolation.
From the Manufacturer:
"The custom material interface used within the Vortex steel outer case is optimized to push the limits of resolution and dynamics without brightness, fatigue or high frequency noise. This material is developed by HRS specifically for the Vortex primary interface to get the best of all musical qualities combined from the compound."
We love the difference that HRS products have made in many customers' systems, and we encourage you to try them in yours...
