Voxativ with Synergistic Research at the RMAF 2018
The Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2018 was very successful. The cooperation of Voxativ and Synergistic Research received very positive feedback and resulted in a Best Of Show Award from Jonathan Valin of The Absolute Sound. He writes: "...on Chet Baker Sings the [9.87] field coils made Chet’s voice and trumpet - recorded with warm, rich RCA BX-44 ribbons [mics] - sound just like they should have, ravishingly lovely and lifelike..."

New Review: Lyric Ti100 Mk.II integrated
Lyric Audio Ti100 Mk.II on the front page of the Fidelity magazine
Lyric Audio's Ti100 Mk.II Class-A integrated single-ended tube amp made it all the way to the front page of the German FIDELITY magazine and also received an Award for Best Amplifier at the latest audio show in Guangzhou, China.

Jochen Reinecke writes: "...the jaw drops after a few bars, no matter whether Jimmy Smith's Hammond organ grunts in the low registers, roars and bubbles like lava - or whether the music gnaws aggressively on the drumhead in the solos... no matter whether the drums consist of only one fine ride cymbal pinging or juicy rim shots and massive bass drum booms... How do you describe such a thing? Well, what is delivered here is simply 'alive'. Intoxicating, enthralling, contagiously happy... The room is literally real enough to walk into, the music completely detaches itself from the speakers and stands shimmering and sparkling in the room. And one almost feels the presence of the musicians right there in the listening room. Spooky, but nice! What could the heart desire more?"

New review: Valvet E2 single-ended solid-state amp
Valvet E2
Roland Kraft of the Stereoplay print magazine wrote (Oct. 2018):
"...a good single-ended Class-A design conveys music with a charm that other end-stage concepts seldom or never reach... the Valvet plays crystal clear transparently, always agile and dynamic. However, its  true strength lies in its large 3-D sound stage which reaches far beyond the speakers, nearing that of a reference system. What the E2 is doing here borders on sorcery...  It’s understandable that using efficient speakers makes life easier for the single-ended amps: every decibel more per watt is converted into pure listening joy. In Conclusion: A short, purist signal path and single-ended design aren’t relics of bygone times, but remain as beneficial for the sound as ever. Therefore: huge compliments!"

New product: Valvet A4 Mk.II
Valvet A4 Mk.II
Just in from Hamburg - in the north of Germany, Knut Cornil's new A4 Mk.II mono-blocks. The Mk.II version of these 55 WPC (into 8 Ohms) Class-A mono-blocks has been much improved. 33% more powerful transformers (now 2 times 400 watts), new audiophile resistors and silver wiring with real cotton isolation elevate these close to the performance of Valvet's top-line mono-blocks, the A4e... and all this while still maintaining Valvet's small footprints. US retail price is $7890 /pair.
