For Sale- Shahinian Obelisk Loudspeaker – £3895

 The OBELISK is the first loudspeaker designed and produced by Shahinian in 1977. At the time, its shape and acoustical disposition were considered radical. Today it is positively conservative compared to what has come and gone.  It has been revised several times as new, exciting technology and devices appeared. Today’s OBELISK could not have been built in 1977. It is still the only genuine poly/omnidirectional loudspeaker on the market.

“Shahinian speakers are capable of an effortless & organic musical reproduction which fills any listening space with a real sense of scale & performance. After a few minutes I realised that I would have to have a pair because of their ability to communicate music like no other speaker I had heard. The interaction between musicians is well presented & the whole is integrated very persuasively; you can’t help but be swept along with the musical message. When you are used to listening to a pair of Shahinians, other speakers sound broken & disjointed when you listen to them. They lack the complete integration of musical strands & natural exuberance of these speakers.”- HI FI +

Shahinian Obelisk loudspeakers in excellent condition with original boxes, so can be shipped. In oak finish.

For Sale- Densen B200 Pre Amplifier & Densen B330 Power Amplifier- £1895

 

The Densen range of pre and power-amplifiers makes music come to life with an ease and a musicality that just sounds so incredibly right. The press often resort to hyperbole when describing it, and a lot of people actually stop talking and communicate the musical experience by tapping their feet, playing the air guitar, banging their heads, conducting imaginary orchestras, or entering a trance-like state.

Both Pre and Power Amplifiers are in excellent condition and with original boxes

B200 Pre Amplifier: The Densen BEAT-200 is the result of over 3 years intensive research and development, providing the focal point for all future Densen products. As you would expect, it bears the Densen trademark of engaging musicality, but the BEAT-200 is also technically sophisticated and is fully engineered for the Gizmo system remote.

Sound wise the B-200 is – as with all other Densen products – designed with the absolute highest sound-quality as its goal. From the second the signal enters the B-200 there is no compromise.

 

B330 Power Amplifier:  It’s a bold statement, but we won’t hesitate to call the B-330 a reference power-amplifier that offers extremely good value for money. The B-330 is a direct descendent of our reference B-350 monoblocks. The B-330 is a stereo power-amp based on B-350-technology, and it uses the distinct monoblock cabinet with its recessed heatsinks.

The B-330 contains several exciting features. The back panel has a switch to adjust the gain, enabling the B-330 to work perfectly with a traditional pre-amp or with a CD with variable output. There is also a D-Sub15 connector, allowing for Link connection to other Densen products and for auto power on/off. The D-Sub connector can be daisy-chained in multi-room systems. The B-330 is also prepared for the SAXO electronic crossover. This is done by mounting the crossover internally in the B-330 in a socket. The SAXO crossover will fit all passive speakers on the market.

FOR SALE- DENSEN 420 XS CD PLAYER- £895

“this is a genuinely air-guitar-inspiring player and that can’t be a bad thing.” Hi Fi Choice

“Positively speaking, Densen is selling cheats. That’s why anyone who associates their plain cosmetics with plain performance completely misses the boat. Aesthetics and functionality are simply sublimated perfectly to the main task at hand – serving up the tunes with emotion, juice and strong tone colors. ” 6 Moons

The B-420 may look as the naturally progression of the award winning Densen B-400+ at least pricewise, but actually is more of a successor to the significantly more expensive Densen B-400XS.

The B-420 is in all aspects optimised for perfect performance. The Densen design team has focused totally on creating a CD player that not only sets new standards for the price range, but actually plays music in a way that allows the listener to really dig into the music.

Soundwise the B-420 is the result of Densen headhoncho Thomas Sillesens desire to make a CD Player that not only surpasses the current Densen models, but a CD player that will be a benchmark for what can be expected from CD players not only at the pricepoint of the B-420, but also at pricepoints much higher. The B-420 is transparent, dynamic, precise, engaging, musically correct, with a precise soundstage, and the ability to create a sound so good you forget you are “just” listening to a CD Player.

The B-420 has double goldplated RCA outputs, BNC digital output and Densen’s own Digital output format which allows for easy upgrade to separate DAC and Transport, if Densen decides to launch a separate DAC. The digital outputs can be switched off. It also has DenLink for easy communication between Densen products and for use in multiroom systems.

FOR SALE- DENSEN B-440XS CD PLAYER- £1595

“I have always felt that in an ideal world, I would have a machine for each type of music…Well the B-400 XS went a long way to satisfying all of my musical tastes. ”

“Using it on a day to day basis, I was constantly struck by how engaging it was, regardless of material. The top end was smooth and sweet, plenty of openness and detail, and while being somewhat more forward and having extra bite than the Meridian, though it was never in your face or oppressive.”

“Strings had a very natural feel to them, and while sounding delicate where required there was an agility that endowed the music with more vitality than I had previously heard. The Bartok string quarters sounded a little more alive, more believable, and more dynamic, while the sultry opening of the first quartet was exactly that, a little dark and full of misgiving. But as it progresses, the music begins to lift and soar, and the change of temperament was well conveyed by the Densen”

“the first Jeff Buckley album stands out as being memorable, the drums and percussion were awesome in their dynamics and impact. There was such a sense of coherence and solidity that made music really enjoyable, and much as I hate to say it, more analogue in its presentation, which can only be a good thing.”

“The Densen is a cake – and eat it product – it has sophisticated refinement alongside the dynamic and rhythmic capabilities that allow me to enjoy the wide range of music that I listen to. It has all too easily become ignorable as a piece of hi-fi equipment. Unfortunately its performance is going to be sorely missed.” – Reviewed by CHRIS BINNS at HI FI PLUS.

FOR SALE- NAPSC POWER SUPPLY OLD STYLE- £115

Naim Audio is one of the most commercially successful British audio companies today. Its success comes simply from equipment that recreates recorded music with unerring precision. Neither adding nor subtracting anything from the original performance.

Since the company’s foundation, Naim Audio has relentlessly pursued the same, single, outwardly simple aim: to recreate the performance a musician has recorded accurately and with all of the information wholly intact.  That means that not only must the musical notes be faithfully preserved but so must the emotion and passion that inspired the performance.

What makes Naim stand out cannot be conveyed in numbers alone: what measurement, for example, reveals how one singer’s phrasing is more evocative than another’s or that one guitarist plays more fluently than another?

The importance of power supplies has been at the heart of Naim philosophy for over twenty five years. Although certain Naim amplifiers provide an adequate power supply for the partnering preamplifier, the use of a separate Naim ultra-low noise power supply brings substantially improved musicality to the whole system. Simply being separate from the amplifiers ensures correct earthing and hum-free operation, while the large toroidal transformer and generous high quality smoothing capacitors provide exceptional dynamic stability.

The Napsc Power Supply Old Style is in excellent condition.

With original Boxes so can be shipped.

FOR SALE- DENSEN B-310 POWER AMP- £695

Second Hand £695. 2 years old. Retail £1450.

Black.

Excellent condition.

With original boxes, willing to ship internationally.

“I was immediately impressed with the depth, bass weight, and midrange transparency of the B-310. Very impressed. Its stable imaging, smoothness, and sweet high frequency reproduction were real winners.”

“The B-310 was high end and high class all the way. No matter what discs I spun, or files I streamed, the results were the same. Endless hours of fatigue free listening, with enough information to satisfy detail freaks, yet a full bodied, rich sound that would satiate tube aficionados, with the huge plus of super quiet operation, zero maintenance, and superb bass control.”

“The B-310 power amp is an easy recommendation. It is a sweet sounding, solid-state amp, with plenty of power for most applications, maintenance free, with understated good looks in the Danish design tradition. It worked really well with my tube preamp, but even better when coupled with Densen’s own B-200 preamp. I don’t know how you can do better without spending a whole lot more.”

“Sound staging is expansive and the level of detail resolution impressive, even considering the price point. However, it isn t the Densens hi-fi attributes that will stick in your mind after a demo: no, we bet you’re more likely to remember how good the music was, because that’s what this amplifier does. It uses all its hi-fi talents to produce cohesive, musical result that put the artist and music first.”

“VERDICT: This is another fine product from Densen. This pre/power (B-200/B-310) is right up therewith the very best at this price.” Reviewed by WHAT HI FI?
