Mola-Mola's new stand alone Tambaqui Dac arrives next week, Andy Baker the UK Mola distributor did tell me what Tambaqui means but I have forgotten.

When Purité Audo retailed Mola the first time around this was the product that I really wanted to hear, development literally took years.

Designed by bruno Putzeys and bart Van Lamm the Mola dac is meant to be the cat's pyjamas the very best you can have.

Molas preamp the makua was completely transparent and the Hypex, Ncore based power amps the 'Kalugas' were amongst the finest I have used

Warwick Acoustics, formerly Warwick Audio Technologies, developed the Sonoma model One headphones here in the UK, industrial design was from their US division, and the Sonoma name is licensed as Warwick's CTO used to work for Sonoma during the period they co-developed SACD with Sony.

The Model one is an electrostatic design using an extremely light membrane developed by Warwick, the Model One also includes the headphones energiser and also built in is an extremely high quality dac.

 Above is the integrated amplifier/dac.

 The headset itself is made from magnesium and is incredibly light, sound quality is really extraordinary.

George Apsion of Kore-Studios asked me to bring down a pair of D&D's 8Cs to West London to take part in a three way speaker shoot out!

George and Mark were charming as was Tom from KMR who bought along some 'Pro' Kii THREEs and some PSIs their 215s.

Kore is a 'proper' studio,it was fascinating to hear all three speakers in a professionally created environment.

George mentioned how important it was that the ambient noise of the studio be extremely low and it was quiet!

George wanted to compare,

Dutch&Dutch 8C

PSI 215

Kii THREE

Tom from KMR brought along a clever switch box enabling instant switching and trim for the speakers.

I thought it a good idea to bring together all  8C reviews in one place.

Marj and Henk for 'Six Moons',

My personal favourite is this review by Mitch Barnett for 'Computer Audiophile',

it mixes subjective opinion and objective measurement.

How do you really achieve the finest possible sound from your system, purchase expensive cables? NO!

Acoustically measure your room ( REW software is free ) we can lend you a microphone.

Actually seeing the speakers' response is always enlightening

 Yesterday I sat with two charming gentlemen who had come to compare the KII THREE and Dutch&Dutch 8C loudspeakers, there was a slight resonance from both speakers which was noticeable when we played an Isaac Hayes track, the resonance wasn't anything to do with the speakers but is caused by air vibrating at a specific frequency, this is simply because of the physical dimensions of your r...

A musician friend visited, we were discussing guitars, whether objectively one could be 'better' than another, he said they could!

I listened to a lot of guitars, and I thought that Furch not only sounded wonderful but they were also beautifully built, they are elegant and understated.

We would welcome anyone to come along and evaluate our range of Furch guitars for themselves, in a calm enviroment.

The coffee is decent too!

In terms of price I believe Furch offer a beautifully built guitar, aesthetically gorgeous but

not outrageously priced compared to US 'heritage' brands.

Come and hear for yourself what Furch is about.
