Hybrid amplification, system preamp & phono

Circle Labs’ amplification is the two people affair and the long story of searching for a holy grail. 25 years of experiencing with different circuits, both tubes and solid state based, brought designer Krzysztof Wilczyński to the point where he decided to create a hybrid of both, as it was the only way to merge into the product all the qualities he has been looking for. That’s how the A100 has been born, the first unit using power circuit topology and the progenitor to the range in existence today.

Magnetosolid amplification, sources & spicers 

Grandinote is the brainchild of the extraordinary engineer, Massimiliano Magri, being very complex and unusual, like Max (as his friends call him) himself.  It requires a meeting in person with the man to fully understand what this means, and such a meeting is not too difficult as he regularly flies with his “Playback Circus” from one HiFi show to another.  Take your chance then to understand better what we mean by that, but first sit back, relax and listen to the music.

Tube amplifiers

KR Audio Electronics is one of the world’s leading producers of high performance power tubes and high-end amplifiers. All products are hand-crafted including their hand-blown glass vacuum tubes. KR’s uniquely high quality is a result of their artisan work in metal and glass blowing, chemical and electrical designs, high vacuum machines and their refusal to use automation to make their tubes.

Based in Prague, KR Audio started out as a tube manufacturer, first with the historic Marconi valve company, then becoming a manufacturer of OEM tubes for high-end audio amplifiers in 1994. At present they design and build 15 different tube amplifier models for all tastes, including two completely solid state designs. KR continues to manufacture tubes and is the inventor of the huge KR T-1610, used on the magnificent ‘Kronzilla’ DM monoblock amplifiers, which until recently was the largest and most powerful audio tube ever made.

Passive Magnetic Pre-amplifiers

These need no introduction. MFA supplies few different ranges of their passive magnetics, which are coming with many possible finishes and configurations.  From the Classic to the latest V2, they are all a joy to own and use.  G-Point audio is proud to be able to offer the entire range of MFA products, all of them priced exactly the same around the country and available for demo on demand. You want one – give us a call!

Mono Amplifiers, Modular pre-amplifier

My Sound Cubes were the first amp we took to the National Show to run our hORNS Universum speakers.  Sweet memories!  They were lovely from the start and we fully supported further development having the right feeling that they are going to develop into something even more special.  And they are indeed.  Have a look now at these sculptures of wood, metal and glass and imagine your self how do they sound?  The answer is that they sound DIVINE.

Integrated MosFet amplifier and mono blocks

RA’s Canatata 50 was a perfect visual and sonic match from the beginning. The latest 2.0 version comes up to date with the latest Cantata Music Centre. Finally, for completion the mono version of the amps has joined the family. Perfect choice for those who couldn’t survive with 50 Watts as with those amps power has doubled. Like all from RA those are smallest and most jewellery-finished boxes ever. Despite the possible domestic harmony of sliding them into a lower shelf of the cabinet when lack of space is an issue it would be an unforgettable sin to place these beauties anywhere other than on the top shelf.

Hybrid amplifiers and preamplifiers

Due to today’s marketing information “overload”, we see a lot of “glitter” without much substance, but we can now offer real candy inside the wrapper!  The products from Italian company, Riviera Audio Laboratories (R.A.L.) are true examples of style and substance.  R.A.L. has brought tangible technological innovation to their circuit design, rather than rehashing existing designs and passing them off as something new.  This is a delicious rarity, which additionally comes packed like an exquisite box of the finest chocolates.

Full Silver amplification

Silver will always divide opinion – there are as many people who love it madly whilst there is a seemingly equal number hate it.  But when silver is properly implemented within Hi-Fi equipment, the results can be a thing of absolute beauty.  For manufacturers, silver is not an easy material to work with, and only a very few true artisans have mastered the necessary skills to do so.  Christof Kraus of SILVERCORE is one such artisan.  All of his inductors are made with ultra-high purity silver and every one of them is wound by the man himself.  This is where his vacuum tube amplifiers begin their lives.
