Marten in Stockholm!

Another hifi show to come and listen to us at: Stockholm High End 2013. In the beautiful capitol of Sweden we will exhibit Django L, Coltrane Tenor, MSB analog DAC, MSB S200 Amplifier and Jorma Design cables. This set up is awesome and we’re pretty sure that it will sound amazing. Last year was a lot of fun and so should this year so come and see us in the ‘Grundström’ room at Lundqvist & Lindqvist‘s showrooms.

A little more…

from CES. Even though it’s a while ago, we thought we might just write one lats post about it. We’re almost in a bit o sentimental mood now when it’s so far to the next one:)


There were a lot of interest in this recorder from Nagra. A proper geeky collectors item in our room.

Excellent Duke 2 review!

the Duke 2’s are groundbreaking in their newfound lushness, major league detail retrieval, and sense of wondrous reality.

Many thanks to Robert H. Levi at Positive Feedback for this amazing review.

CES: day 3


Here’s last years success Django XL in suite 29-121, The Antelope Audio Room. They sound wicked with this rather complex setup.


In the middle there’s a sort of retro-futuristic rack that contains an Orion 32  audio master clock, a Zodiac Gold 10M Master clock, Kaplan cable connections, Bully Sound Company BSC 60s Power amplifier, Music Vault Diamond, EAR 834-P Phono Preamp. It sounds as good as it looks cool.

The show finally started and there’s been loads of visitors today. We’re sharing room with Nagra again this time, just like in Munich.


Here’s Leif, doing the fine tuning.

Coltrane Tenor

The new Coltrane Tenor sound awesome together with Nagra’s electronics and Jorma Design’s cables.


The Marten Room

We also have a few pairs of speaker scattered across CES but we’ll chat about that later.
