Accessories

We've taken the accessories we recommend seriously and only after careful consideration do we make them available to our clients. They must improve the performance of our systems and truly be audible while presenting excellent value.


The REL Series S ~ S5/SHO Sub-Base System

S/5 SHO exceeds the mandate for mid-level models and crosses this model into true reference quality. S/5 SHO produces exceptionally low bass with tremendous impact and speed. Even difficult-to-render instruments such as pipe organs are dealt with effortlessly. Large scale, high end 2-channel systems make a perfect pairing for S/5 SHO and grand theaters are ideal. Medium to grand rooms are appropriate. Scale is Very Large, Speed is Exceptional, Attack and Slam is Visceral.


 

AUDEZE LCD-XC High Performance Closed-Back
Planar Magnetic Headphone

For a long while customers asked us for a closed-back version of our headphones. We had to design a new transducer that was subsequently placed in the LCD-X. The closed-back LCD-XC offers all the benefits of the LCD Collection's open designs but closed-backs isolate the listener and reduce ambient noise. The bass is phenomenal and if you're a DJ or studio engineer the LCD-XC is definitely the headphones for you. Like all Audeze headphones the LCD-XC is equipped with Fazor technology it's sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players like iPods, iPhones, and the better smartphones but an external amplifier produces better results.

"Dynamic impact is astonishing, you never get the feeling you're approaching the limits of what it can do."

Acoustic Revive RTP-6 Ultimate Outlets

A machined structure has far better vibration damping characteristics, sound quality and overall lower distortion when compared with metal sheets bolted together to form a box. The box's maximum thickness is 25mm, making it able to be very highly effectively in shielding the inner structural elements, and yielding a very high S/N ratio.

For the RTP-2, 4 and 6 ultimate's outlets, Oyaide produced a custom version of their R-1 receptacle. The R-1`s electrode material is made from Beryllium copper, which has the best conduct characteristic. ACOUSTIC REVIVE only treats the conductive parts.

Couple this with a PranaWire LineBaker or LineBacker XE and transform your entire system!


Oyaide R1 Receptacle ; R0 Receptacle

The importance of high quality power supply connections is now widely accepted. Many enthusiasts install dedicated power lines for their hi fi systems and no longer question the importance of the quality of the receptacle fitted to the wall. Conventional "hospital grade" connectors can improve the strength of the mechanical connection, but they are far from ideal for realizing the best sound quality.

Their objective was to develop receptacles whose sole purpose was to deliver the highest sound quality possible. Every part has been designed with this in mind. Extensive research into the effects of plating methods has yielded three equally valid but different types of sound for you to choose from. The entire series is non-magnetic to avoid any disturbance from magnetic fields.

Oyaide WPZ / WPZ-2 Wall Plates

The most important function for a high-performance mounting frame is attenuating vibration quickly and attaining unity with outlets. The hybrid materials of the WPZ and WPZ-2 has different resonance frequency, perform passive vibration suppression to maximize performance of SWO series and R-1. Furthermore, CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic), the material of face plate, has functions of static protection and electromagnetic shielding.

AUDEZE Deckard Class-A Amplifier / DAC

A powerhouse of a headphone amplifier combined with a high-performance DAC, the Deckard drives any headphone with power to spare. The DAC has impressive specs and handles 16 to 32-bits and sampling rates from 44.1kHz to 384kHz. There's a volume control and front-panel switches to choose gain and input so you can also use the Deckard as a great line-level preamp. The sound is exciting and dynamic with beautifully rendered tonal colors that make music come alive.

"The Deckard is a no-holds-barred approach to headphone amplification, with Class-A circuitry for clean sound and the full spectrum of DAC audio sampling frequencies." / ALEXANDER LAMASCUS ~ ROBB REPORT

Refine Audio Jumpers

The Refine jumpers are made out of the special pure hollow silver tube and bridges are only for the Contriva G2 speakers - fitting exactly. The silver is impregnated so you should use some cotton gloves while changing it (we'll give you a pair of cotton gloves if you don't have them). These jumpers will create a better controlled LF and therefore better MF/HF.
