Integrityhifi Tru-Glider Pendulum Tonearm
We're glad to announce that we carry a new, very special product - a revolutionary tonearm that offers superior sound reproduction but with zero friction points - the Tru-Glider Pendulum Tonearm from Integrityhifi. The Tru-Glider Pendulum Tonearm is a floating, stand-alone tonearm with zero offset. A tonearm without bearing friction? A Tonearm without a Uni-Pivot? Impossible! You can never have an arm without friction! So you might think...
...up until now.

Integrityhifi's innovative design incorporates a straight zero offset with pendulum suspension, meaning the arm is virtually weightless. Tru-Glider Pendulum Tonearm is suspended at a single point by means of a very fine Polyethylene Dacron Monofilament. It doesn't rest on the pivot point. There's just enough clearance to control the arm movement. Tru-Glider is friction-free and made from the highest quality materials. It’s unique styling and operation speaks for itself. It comes in two models, an on-board and an off-board model. The arm lengths can be ordered in 10, 11, 12 or 14 inches and the height is customized to your turntable.
Integrityhifi Tru-Glider Pendulum Tonearm
The first rave review plus a 5-Star Award for this game changer tonearm is already online.
Jay Garrett of StereoNet writes (May 2020):
"...the Integrityhifi Tru-Glider is one of the best tonearms I have heard to date, managing to walk the line without forsaking one characteristic for another. It is at once transparent, engaging and musical – and while its tonality and rhythmic grip are indeed worthy of praise, one must also acknowledge its versatility. With no need for routing holes in your precious turntable plinth or bolting on mounting plates and other associated hardware, this tonearm can be moved freely from turntable to turntable without so much as a hint that it has been there...
I unreservedly recommend it..."

New Review: Integrityhifi Tru-Sweep, Tru-Lift & Tru-Kleen
Integrityhifi Tru-Sweep, Tru-Lift & Tru-Kleen

Integrityhifi's analog accessories are absolutely essential and a must-have for vinyl lovers. The Tru-Sweep, Tru-Lift and Tru-Kleen have been reviewed by Positive Feedback.    

Gary Lea of Positive Feedback wrote (May 2020):
" here you have three items that can make your vinyl journey even more enjoyable. Easy cleaning of your stylus with every play, an anti static dust brush that tracks the album in front of your clean stylus, and not only picks up dust but goes a long way towards completely eliminating static in playback, and at the end another device that gently lifts your tonearm at the end of play. How can you not love that? Make no mistake, the production of these items is really a true labor of love for Carlo. It shows in every piece that they make. I do not think I can endorse these items any more emphatically than to buy all three and make them an integral part of my vinyl ritual..."

New reviews: Holbo Airbearing Turntable System
Holbo Airbearing Turntable System
More reviews have been published for our currently hottest item - Holbo Airbearing Turntable System.

Thomas Schmidt of LP Magazine (May 2020):
"...the Holbo celebrates neutrality at the highest level. The depth and strength of the bass are surprisingly authoritative for a turntable in this class. Holbo's layering of the instruments is just as solidly cemented in the room - even the finest reverberations in a room are reproduced exactly. In addition, there is a very sensitive reproduction of the very high tones and extreme naturalness of the mid-range - so even demanding classical recordings become rousing events that bring the interpreters as close to the listener as one could wish for..."
Ken Redmond of The Audio Beatnik concluded (May 2020):
"...the Holbo is an absolute pleasure to handle and work with day in and day out. Each time you use it you know it is a quality component. It does what it is designed to do and it does it in a way that has you looking forward to using it each time you get ready to play an album. Its $7,900 price is about half the cost of its closest competition that offers similar features, and the Holbo will challenge many of the turntables out there that cost a LOT more. Remember, you get a complete air-bearing turntable and air-bearing tonearm system. Considering that this is a system, the price shouldn’t be a 'bridge too far' for someone who is exploring this level of performance. So after all these years of searching I have finally found a tangential arm solution that fulfills the promise I always suspected they had, AND I get an air-bearing platter as a bonus.  My vinyl listening just got a whole lot better. Yours can also. Very highly recommended!"

New Award: Valvet A4e Class-A mono-blocks

After receiving The StereoTimes Most Wanted Component of the Decade Awards earlier this year, the Valvet A4e mono-blocks were crowned the Fidelity Award Winner 2020 in the category Premium / Amplifiers / Mono-Blocks by the German Fidelity magazine.
Fidelity wrote: "...the new 'e' generation rests on stable, sonically excellent feet from Alto-Extremo. The 65 watts at 8 ohms make music amazingly dynamic and stable...those who do not get goose bumps at what the Valvet mono amps offer in terms of drive, transparency and clarity at this point should urgently make an appointment to see a doctor..."

New Review: Valvet E2se Class-A single-ended amplifier
Valvet E2se Class-A single-ended amplifier
Another great review for the Valvet E2se Class-A single-ended amp was published on Positive Feedback.

Bruce Kinch of Positive Feedback writes (April 2020):
"...the VALVET E2se is simply the most addicting yet almost affordable amplifier I've heard in my system, and one of the best amps I've heard, period. It's not one size fits all, but if, like me, you have or are downsizing to a smaller room, prefer accurate and efficient loudspeakers, and can couple it with high-resolution sources and cabling, the VALVET E2se is going to be a great fit...So to echo Robert Learner's conclusion (park them on your rack for the next ten years and find other things to worry about), the VALVET E2se is a 10-year product, and while I have other things to worry about, it stays..."

New Review: Synergistic Research Tranquility POD
Synergitic Research Tranquility POD

Rick Becker of Enjoy the writes:
"...most impressive was a newfound presence it brought to my system. Not the presence brought by a bump to the upper midrange, but a presence that extends the performances through the plane of the speakers into the space between the speakers and the listener. The Pods bring the experience much closer to what we hear in live performances in addition to the anticipated benefits of increased resolution and improved sound-staging..."

New Reviews and Award: Synergistic's Foundation Cables
Synergistic Research Foundation Cable Series
Synergistics' Foundation Cable Series is getting a lot of attention and received another Award by The Absolute Sound.
Jonathan Valin of TAS wrote:
"...I could happily live with the Foundations, which give you approximately 35-40% of what the Crystal Cables Ultimate Dreams offer, for sixty-five-times less dough! If that isn’t a bargain, I don’t know what is. One of the highest-fidelity budget wires I’ve heard, Foundation obviously comes enthusiastically recommended..."
Rick Becker of Enjoy the writes:
"...I was skeptical that the Foundation cables would make such an improvement in my system, yet they have replaced cables that cost far more and taken my music far higher. Combined with a handful of their fabulous Orange Fuses, a $2000 to $3000 investment toward Synergistic Research's Foundation cables has taken my mid-five-figure rig well into six-figure territory. That's real value and an admirable feat!"
Until the end of June we offer a FREE Foundation Interconnect with the purchase of a Speaker- and Interconnect cable pair. CLICK HERE for more info or to place an order.   
New Product: Synergistic Research UEF Record Weight
Synergistic Research UEF Record Weight
Synergistic's new UEF Record Weight dramatically expands the scale and layering of the soundstage while improving timbral accuracy and tonal density.
Robert Youman of Positive Feedback wrote:
"...with the UEF, there was now a more clearly defined sound stage with even more layers of inner detail. Performance at both ends of the frequency range had an urgency and flow that had my head spinning. Mids were even more seductive and tangible. Tone, timbre, and pitch were spot on for a variety of instruments and vocals. The number of goose bump generating spacial cues now seemed endless. I clearly discovered a new bench mark!"
Until the end of June we offer a FREE 10-pack HFT's with the purchase of a UEF Record Weight.
