We proudly present the first product from our new 30th Anniversary – Master Collection
range – a state of the art line preamplifier with an outboard power supply unit. We believe
this product truly is our “state of the art statement” as every aspect of it reflects 30 years of
our knowledge, experience and learning about design and manufacturing execution of
uncompromised high-end audio instruments. Our choice of very best passive and active
components is a result of endless subjective evaluations and laboratory measurements.
Many components from reputable manufacturers have been produced to our proprietary
specifications. Particular attention has been given to the topology of printed circuit boards
as that happens to be crucial for the best sound quality. Our printed circuit boards are made
out of very particular isolation raw material with all copper traces having a thickness of
75um (preamplifiers) and 120um (power supply units and amplifiers). We also exceeded all
our previous efforts in the area of design and manufacturing of chassis. In addition to an
exceptional aesthetics, the highest available quality aluminium has been used for best
acoustic properties and least sensitivity to RF and EMF effects to the circuits therein. Not
only, very special components for positioning and placement of PCBs inside the chassis have
been implemented in order to further reduce negative mechanical side effects. This, in turn,
preserves transient speed, energy, clarity, definition, focus, microdynamics, true harmonic
structure of music and overall musicality of the recordings played back. After extensive
evaluations, we chose to use CMS (Critical Mass Systems) CS2 isolation/support feet for all
our Master Collection products. They exhibit a minimal transfer of mechanical and airborne
resonances and feedback to the chassis and electronic circuits inside. Preamplifiers and
power supply units have CS2-1.0 isolation/support feet, while all power amplifier use the
larger CS2-1.5 model. All our components are internally wired with Cardas Audio pure
copper chassis wire. Read more…
Last weekend, the Hifi show on Zagreb “TooLoud” fest was completed, with our new distributor RotaryAudio. Mr. Bozo has prepared an extremely serious system with our best KAM2000 monoblocks. According to what we heard from the visitors this was “by far the best sound at this year’s fair.” and we are very happy about it.
The system consisted of:
– Sonus Faber speakers and top model “The Sonus Faber”
– Preamplifier Audio Research Reference 10 Line
– Karan Acoustics KAM 2000 monoblocks
– Phono preamplifier Audio Research Reference 10 phono
– Turntable Kuzma Stabi M with Stogi 4P 14″ arm
– pick up Fuuga
– Streamer AURENDER 10H
– Speaker and interconect cables Jorma Statement
– Power cables Ultimate from Sumic Audio
– Shuniata research denali power distributor
All of this contributed to the very impressive sound, so many visitors came back in our room several times to hear again this system 🙂
Another great hi-end show in ITALY, this time in ROMA was passed very successfully for us and our Italian distributor Mondo Audio. For this show our distributor and friend Mr. Luca Righetti decided to present the combination which consisted of power amplifier, Karan Acoustics, model KA S 600, preamplifier KARAN ACOUSTICS KA L Mk3, digital component by MSB company and his top Premier DAC, and finally, loudspeakers was DUEVEL (model Bella Luna ‘diamante’ and Venus) and AERIAL. Exceptionally good comments, during and after the show, and big visit make us very happy, as well as the fact that system, made by Luca, had been one of the most popular at the show by the opinion of many visitors.
We hope that lovers of good and natural sound in Italy will be more interested in Karan Acoustics amplifiers as well as other components from Luca’s program.
Our French distributor, APR Hi-Fi Company and its owner, Mr. Patrice Muller organized another successful hifi show in Lyon, this year as well. This traditional hifi show had shown high quality systems which offered true pleasure of music material of all genres to all the visitors. Very good visit and many company representatives shown at the show gave visitors the opportunity to ask question regarding devices and speakers, besides enjoying the music, which has been very important to them.
We have used this opportunity and kind invitation by Mr. Muller, as well, and we were present there with full staff.
This year our amplification had been presented in two rooms.
Main system has been based on phenomenal speakers Wilson Audio ALEXX, power amplifiers were our monoblocks KAM2000 which the digital part (CD transport, DAC and streamer) were entrusted to a friendly company APL. System had been connected through ESPRIT cables.
The other room had another concept and Mr. Patrice had chosen Stellar Audio, model Amelia speakers, stereo power amplifier was our KAS600 matched with preamplifier KAL Reference Mk3. As with previous system, DAC, streamer and CD transport were by APL Company.
At the end, fine visit and excellent comments make us happy and we believe in even better sales of our amplifiers on this very demanding market.
We would like to congratulate to the staff of HiFi Link Company and Mr. Muller on successful organization and exceptional reception.
