Munich High End Show 2015

Stephen Harper – Audio Consultants – Friday, June 05, 2015

I visited the Munich High End Show last month. The main purpose of which was to meet with some of my suppliers but, as many of you know, this show is one of the largest, and probably to best audio shows in the world. A huge number of exhibitors over 4 large halls with several levels of closed rooms at atrium levels offering closed demonstration rooms. Exceptionally well organised and presented as you would expect from a German organisation.  More

Audio Desk Systeme Competition Winner

Stephen Harper – Audio Consultants – Friday, May 22, 2015

We had over 1250 respondents to our competition to win one of the Audio Desk Systeme ultrasonic vinyl cleaners. These were a combination of a large number of emails and a significant proportion of post cards. Thanks to all that took the time to do so. It was hard to chose just one person from so many. I decide to pick one day randomly during the period of the competition and selected those emails that came in during that day. One entrant was picked "blind" from those selected. In order not to prejudice those who wrote in, the postcards were put into a bag and one selected ‘blind’. To choose between these two, I flipped a coin and the winner was Mr Peter Willmott from Piddington, Northamptonshire.  More

HiFi Show - Windsor

Stephen Harper – Audio Consultants – Saturday, November 08, 2014

We assisted Max Lowe of HiFi Network with his room at last weekend's HiFi Show at Old Windsor. He was featuring the ELAC FS-409 loudspeakers driven by the Norma Audio REVO SC-2 pre-amplifier and REVO PA 150 stereo power amplifier. The entire cable loom was by In-akustic. We tuned the room with a relatively small number of Acustica Applicata DAADs to superb effect. The sound was of a high order considering the cost of the system compared to many others at the show. More

Pro-Ac Response D20 R update

Stephen Harper – Audio Consultants – Thursday, June 05, 2014

Customer reaction to the new ribbon speaker from Pro-Ac, the Response D20R, has been truly amazing. All who have heard it have immediately appreciated its strengths and quality of sound. It is comparing favourably with many competitive brands that are more heavily marketed. We have achieved a smoother, more integrated sound than similarly priced, sometimes higher priced, models from PMC and Harbeth. Soundstaging is clearly superior with more depth and a much less forward presentation. More natural - less hifi. Superb value with pricing of the standard finishes at £2650. More

ProAc Response D20 Ribbon loudspeakers

Stephen Harper – Audio Consultants – Tuesday, May 13, 2014

Our long awaited demonstration pair of ProAc Response D20R loudspeakers are now with us. Our impressions of these at the Bristol HiFi Show was extremely positive and they have exceeded our expectations. This is a development on the popular Response D18 model using the ribbon tweeter that is currently in the D30 and D40 models. The cabinet has been upgraded with an re-designed bass loading and new crossover network. Similar in concept to the D30R but using a glass fibre bass cone incorporating an acrylic phase plug. The result is a significant upgrade to the sound in all areas. With a wonderfully open and expansive mid range supported by a substantial bass for the size of cabinet. The ribbon tweeter adding sweet and detailed upper frequencies which contribute to a precise focus of imaging within a large sound stage. This new design offers a lot for the money and is likely to set a new reference standard at this price point. An early audition is highly recommended. More

Musical Event No 2 Report

Stephen Harper – Audio Consultants – Wednesday, April 02, 2014

We would like to thank all those who attended our Musical Event last weekend. There were many compliments about the sound we created with the featured system. One visitor said that this sound was better than anything he heard at the HiFi News Show at Old Windsor last October, even in the most high-end rooms. We were grateful for such a generous comment. More
