Audio Elevation Newsletter July 2011.

OK, you’ve noticed that we missed June’s newsletter by now so we’ll not dwell on the fact that we simply forgot to do one last month and move swiftly onto this month’s news….


This is a brand we’ve wanted for a long time. What’s made it sweeter in the end is that Icon actually approached us and asked us to represent them in Yorkshire. They obviously saw that we aligned with them very well and we jumped at the chance to get onboard.

We hope to build up dem stock over time but have just taken delivery of the first units.

MP3 Mini Valve Amplifier…£399.

Geneva Sound SystemsSET valve amp with just 5w per channel but don’t be fooled. I have them driving Monopulse A (£3445) floorstanders and they fill my 13×17 foot room here with music with the volume at 12 o’clock position.

Even though I’m still running this in, it doesn’t take much critical listening of your favoured CDs/records to know this is an outstanding hi-fi product. We previously liked the Fatman hybrid valve amp (Carbon Edition), which is in the same price range, for it’s warm valve sound but this is a different class. Fit, finish, build quality etc are all in a different league to the Fatmen (and remember we DO like the Fatman!). RCA input for CD etc plus a 3.5mm mp3 player input mean you have the flexibility and switchable headphone/speaker output gives you access to an excellent headphone amplifier with 6.3mm jack socket on the front panel. Love it.

HP8 MkII Headphone Amplifier…£499.

Geneva Sound SystemsThis is the other product that we’ve actually got our hands on, although the box is not open yet. Single Ended Triode design with class A output so we expect lovely valve sound and enough drive to match with any/all headphone designs. This is very much “anti” the other designs that we know well out there from Graham Slee, Heed, Lehmann etc and we have high hopes that it will offer sound quality that you’ll want to sit and listen to for a long time without fatigue.

Icon products are finished to order so, if you purchase from the website, note there will be a short delay before we can deliver. Worth the wait, though.
