Ross Mantle of Audio BEAT just published this wonderful review of KR VA 910 mono amplifiers. This is an interesting write up about rather interesting amps as there is no other PP amp existing which with Max 160 W output given is capable to stay in pure Class A up to 120 Watts. Quite impressive. This article is especially interesting to me due to his use of Lansche Audio P- 5.1 speakers ,which are complete contrary to KSK stats used in the Sound Stage Ultra test.
It is sad to confirm that Holger passed away yesterday, in his home, the old CAN studio in Weilerswist.
This is another great personal lost to me on my music in life map. The pain is huge. It is like loosing the member of the family to me. I did feel the same twice in life so far. First when Miles Davis left, and recently after Charlie Haden’s departure. All of them helped me to find the Beauty in life and their music guided me all through and do continue so. Many great musicians left us this year and their importance is indisputable. This introduction then is to make it vivid how much those three were particularly important to myself.
Half year back I announced that an Olympus of KBL ‘s family of power cables had been changed with the new Pantheon of Gods taking over. Since that time ,also the Power Distributor went through entire evolution. Marek Dyba , one of the hifi Knights looked at that subject closer and drugged us through the improvements which happened to the family of PDs as well as paid closed attention to KBL’s latest Synchro Master power cable leaving on the top of the holy mountain now. The review below takes us closer to all the subjects mentioned above. Have a good read and enjoy a lot of priceless information on that how to make your system better!
StavEssence is not your usual cable company. The only cables you will be able to find here are network and USB cables. But that shows immediately that company focuses on the modern technologies and on streaming and networking in particular, developing type of cables which origin from the IT market. The main brain behind the brand and company owner, Mr. Karol Staworko is not your usual designer either. He makes his creations verifying results with his senses rather, than by sticking up to measurements and norms.
Dear friends in music, this is a sad duty to announce that lost. Peter “Principle” Dachert, longtime bassist and songwriter for experimental post-punk band Tuxedomoon, was found dead Monday morning of natural causes, according to his bandmates. He was 63. Dachert’s death comes a little more than one year after fellow band member Bruce Geduldig died on his 63rd birthday. Looks like a course number 63. Tuxedomoon was to play several dates in Europe, starting on Jul. 28 with a show in Italy which I was planning to attend. The band obviously has canceled the European tour.

This is an Epitaph post for Don Garber of Fi. One of the most amazing artisan audio creator, whose amplifiers brought a lot of joy to my life and music listening sessions. I never had a chance to know or meet Don, therefore there is nothing I can say except the fact that it is sad to acknowledge that audio word lost another great audio visioner and master, after Gents like Hiroyasu Kondo or Ken Shindo are not with us anymore. Therefore I dare to link the memories of those who had a privilege and chance to know Don in person, so let their memories will help us all to not forget about an Amazing Don Garber and his unique Fi creations, which just a little minority had a luck to experience. I am glad I have in my hands his SE amplifier and I always will be able to think about Don when listening to it. R.I.P Mr. Garber.

Please follow then complete excellent write up by Marek Dyba to learn more about it.
