Gold Note CD-7 with top of the range Favard upgrades. £1200

The compact CD-7 was always very musical.

This is a custom-built one-off Gold Note supplied to me with upgrades from the top of the range Favard including its Burr Brown PCM 1792A DAC, components of its power supply including the power regulator and OP as well as the Clock.

The idea being to have a really compact CD player of superior quality.

DIMENSIONS: Width 200mm  x Height 80mm  x Depth 260mm

Superb and at my cost price.

‘SME’ RCA plugs.

Many years ago I used to curse the overly complex 4-5 piece RCA plugs which were often referred to as ‘SME’ plugs.

I don’t know if SME made them but they were dreadful.

Often attached to arm leads the wires would shear, come loose and cause all sorts of intermittent problems.

The screen wires were trapped by a threaded portion which would soon enough break off the filaments or develop a loose connection.

To my surprise, some Chord cables use a similar design of RCA plug with a plastic outer casing.

My Chord iChord lead has been very unreliable with the centre pins sometimes sticking in the socket and the plastic body sliding off the plug (hence the ugly glue fix) and the same issues with the screen- pinching piece needing tightening and the screen coming detached.

Now, the last straw, the earth has sheared causing a rare drive-unit to be blown…

 

Peerless 100-20 co-ax drivers – offers

Rare 9 inch drivers with tweeter on frame in front of bass-driver dust cap.

Alnico magnets.

Not the first time I find a good co-axial driver outperforms a good full ranger. E.g. Visaton B200, Fostex etc.

Peerless did not bother replying regarding driver parameters but sensitivity seems very high.

Original Jensen caps (which measure fine) supplied but have replaced them just in case. – see image.

Audioflair

There has been some confusion about our status. We never traded as Audioflair Ltd. We applied to be a Ltd Co to protect the Audioflair name but it remained dormant until it was voluntarily dissolved by us in 2016.  I have always been a sole trader and still am.

E’ molto raro, come è noto, che uno specialista di Hi fi – e in genere di qualunque servizio – lasci completamente soddisfatti e non mostri pecche. Ma questo è il caso. Adrian Parsons di Audioflair ha mostrato eccezionale competenza, pazienza  e raffinatezza nel mettere a punto un impianto hi end di inaudita – è il caso di dirlo – qualità, sapendo ascoltare le mie esigenze e trovando la soluzione ideale. Il tutto, incredibile a dirsi, a un costo davvero ragionevole per la qualità dei componenti, dimostrando un’onestà, correttezza e trasparenza che sembrano non avere nulla a che fare con il mondo del mero commercio ma piuttosto con quello dell’amicizia. Highly recommended!
