The Audiobarn

Whether this is your first adventure in ‘proper’ hifi, or you are looking for your end-game system, there should be one thing in common.  Excitement.

That’s what we do here at The Audiobarn.  Create the perfect setting and experience that not only do you make the right purchase, but you enjoy every moment of the process.

From coffee, chatting and demonstrations, to the setting up of your new system.

New arrival from @ta_hifi .. the DAC 200

The 200 series builds on the huge success the German Manufacturer had with the 8 series, most notably the DAC 8

We're looking forward to more 200 Series arriving imminently with the Streamer/CD Transport and 2 channel power amplifier. A compact system with serious Hifi Heritage and Prestige

Our favourite @magico_llc shot featuring the M2 and A5 @ The Audiobarn

These are without doubt the pick of the range, very different price points, very different appearance, the same reaction when played... musical bliss

The @rockporttechnologies Atria II and Avior II loudspeakers on demonstration here at the Barn

Our Atria II's have always impressed but the intrigue of the Avior II's became too much. It's great to confirm our excitement and enthusiasm to hear them wasn't misplaced

The Avior II exceeded expectation. They offer so so much more...

A sad day came yesterday when they left to go our for review with #hifichoice, look out for that one very soon. We are convinced it will be an absolute corker!

Networks have become an essential part of the "Hifi chain" these days. It's the reason why @chordcables have put so much emphasis on their streaming cables and now their development of the English Electric Network Switches

After great success with the 8Switch we are pleased to see The Chord Company expand the range with the new 16Switch. Whilst we appreciate not everyone needs 16 network ports (ethernet sockets) the 16Switch provides so much more than just additional connectivity...

"The 16Switch is a two-zone, dual power supply, 16-port Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) device which has been optimised for music and video streaming. The 16Switch brings the proven benefits of the 8Switch to larger networks and features 2x independent rows of eight high-quality Gigabit Ethernet ports, which can be used as two independent eight-way switches or connected and used as one 16-way device"

We've heard the improvement independent zones can provide when it comes to power distribution so we've already jumped onboard! Add to that you can quickly upgrade the power cable to further reduce noise and distortion, I have no doubt this will become the hub of many top digital systems!

Just a quick post today between demonstrations...

We're so quick to praise the @kudosaudio Titan series that we sometimes forget just how good the Supers are!

Here we have the Super 20A floorstanding speakers in walnut, they are on permanent demonstration at the barn along with their baby brother, the Super 10A bookshelf speaker

As the "A" suggests, both speakers work in active configuration to unleash far more music (weight, scale, clarity, separation... you name it!)

The #Vitus SIA-025 is one of our "go to" amplifiers when things start to get serious. Organic and sweet with plenty of drive and dynamics. If you want to be drawn in, the SIA has an emotive quality that captivates and transports you straight to the heart of the music

The @vitus_audio_as Signature series features two integrated amplifiers, both can be used in pure Class A or A/B operation. The SIA-025 seen here is the more compact whilst the SIA-030 is a tad large, some say a beast! We have both on demonstration and we rather enjoy the comparison should you want to hear for yourself...

https://www.theaudiobarn.co.uk/vitus/

The @lumin.music X1 and @neohighend Quattron Reference rack complete the system along with the customers existing speakers he had already imported from his native Poland

We have another visit planned soon to help with a new addition to the system and are looking forward to hearing what it's capable of now the system has settled in to it's new home!

The Vertere Acoustics Sabre receives "Outstanding Product" by Hi-Fi News

"I adore the Sabre. It’s richer-sounding than current MMs in my experience, but no less detailed and precise, with plenty of speed and attack for coping with transients. While there’s still a magical warmth to moving-coils which separates them from moving-magnets, this narrows the gap to insignificance."

Just in time for Christmas, one lucky customer took delivery of his new Klimax level Linn LP12, finished in custom Ferrari Grigio Titanio Metallic Grey. In combination with the absolutely sublime Dynavector DRT XV-1s moving coil cartridge, this wonderful addition to his system sounded every bit as good as it looked - the best of British, meets the precision of the Japanese and the style of the Italians!

Custom finishes on all level LP12’s are available on request.

Kudos Audio is a marque that continues to go from strength to strength here at The Audiobarn, with the Titan range being one of those rare speaker designs that easily transcends fashion and system matching to become that most coveted of things - a loudspeaker that is all things to all people! This is high praise indeed, as all too often loudspeaker designs are to niche in their appeal or too restrictive in terms of their application

Their combination of clean lines and choice of tasteful real wood veneers (or indeed luxurious piano black lacquer, if that is your preference) offer a timeless luxury and an aesthetic profile that is as much at home in a cutting edge contemporary home, as it is in a traditional beamed cottage. Likewise, its carefully crafted output and musical response is able to be easily accommodated in less than ideal placement, meaning they can be positioned hard against walls, corners and even furniture, without blunting their audible integrity or innate sense of musicality; they are decidedly unfussy, room friendly and simply drop-dead gorgeous, both to look at and to hear - which is just about everything that anybody has ever wanted from a performance loudspeaker.

We are privileged to be able to offer all the Kudos Titan models here in store and equally proud to be able to say, justifiably, that they remain some of the very best in British audio design - a remarkable achievement and a real-world superstar.

Available to order and audition on request

Titans are special speakers, no doubt about that.

We often accuse ourselves of not being adventurous enough with colour choices for demonstration

At least we can't be accused of it this time with the #alluxity Int. One mk2 as we went for Titanium Orange!

needs a matching leather high backed listening chair … lovely colour

Nice, I like something a bit different to the usual silver or black - hence I went for the orange Vertere phono stage 👌🏼

After seeing that, maybe stick to black and silver.😂 It probably sounds amazing.👍
