[ NEW! Thöress F2A11 integrated amplifier review on HIFI Knights ]
” German Thöress company is one of those small audio manufactures known mainly to enthusiasts of high calibre. Its owner isn’t into recognition at all. Driven by passion he does his own thing, happy customers handle all the rest and the Thöress word is spread in such fashion for two decades or so. “ With these words David starts his journey into Reinhard Thöress world in his latest Thöress F2A11 integrated amplifier review.
[ New! KR Audio • VA910 Mono Amplifiers review on AUDIO BEAT!]
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.
CODA: [Holger Czukay ~ 24 March 1938 – 5 September 2017]
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.

[Welcome to new cable supplier in our portfolio : The Stavessence from Poland]
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.
CODA:[ Peter “Principle” Dachert ??? 1954 – 17 July 2017]
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.

[ CODA : DON GARBER of Fi 1935 -2017 ]
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.
