  1. Gato PRD-3S PreAmplifier - Walnut - £1,995 - RRP: £2,890 https://www.eliteaudiouk.com/product-page/gato-prd-3s-preamplifier-walnut Gato has been designing and building amplifiers for over 10 Years in Denmark and blends Danish style with killer sound: Gato PRD-3S - Pre-Amplifier - Walnut - £1995, RRP - £2890 This is the latest model in the preferred and new 'S' specification "S" is for Super – the PRD-3S is anything else than the subtle makeover of the standard PRD-3. It is a highly improved and extremely high performing preamplifier designed and optimized to work with Gato's brand new PWR-222 monoblocks, or indeed any high-quality power amp you wish to use. It now even features an aptX Bluetooth receiver circuit that enables streaming from a computer, phone or tablet in high quality. Gato changed and improved the electrical circuits and layouts in more than twenty ways, the most significant being: Optimized mains filter Improved general and local power supplies New input stage Improved line stage New analogue stages in the D/A converter Improved digital signal routing Updated firmware Improved connectors Incorporated aptX Bluetooth module Don't miss the opportunity to give this preamplifier a listen – we are certain that it will impress with clean, smooth and detailed pre-amplification that does not only offer built-in D/A converter and aptX Bluetooth – but also the ability to bring out the best in your setup. Smooth analogue music The analogue input stage is where everything begins. It not only connects external inputs and the built-in D/A converter with the output stage, it adapts impedances, adjusts levels and switches signals. A super-gentle embrace of the delicate analogue signals is important for the total performance of the preamplifier. At Gato Audio we have utilized our many years of experience in "voicing" analogue amplifiers to make this particular stage perform at its very best. We tuned the input stage to perform with a natural and lifelike sound, affecting the original signal as little as possible. More than just a Preamp The built-in D/A converter offers real high-end performance, enabled by the use of a dedicated power supply, a balanced-drive Burr-Brown PCM1794 D/A converter, an optimized high bandwidth I/V converter, and an analogue stage with low-Q, low pass filters. All digital inputs are upsampled to 24bit/192kHz. This D/A converter will upgrade any digital source - such as wired or wireless streaming from your computer or CD drive - to a high-end level of detail and musical performance.

    Vovox Vocalis USB Cable - 1m

    Vovox Vocalis USB Cable - 1m - £129 - RRP:£129 https://www.eliteaudiouk.com/product-page/vovox-vocalis-usb-cable-1m This is an opportunity to purchase pre-loved Vovox Vocalis USB Cable - 1m - £129, RRP - £224 VOVOX® sound conductors are hand-assembled in Switzerland. The cables, including the solder, are lead-free Next Shielded USB 2.0 cable To produce a USB cable from VOVOX solid core conductors and organic fibres is not a trivial task. We are happy, that we managed it. The basis for perfect sound quality. solid-core copper conductors shielded cable coating with natural fibres optimized cable design for digital signals Connectors for VOVOX® vocalis IC digital USB Our USB connectors are manually soldered on the cable and afterwards shapely injection-moulded. An ideal combination of careful manufacture with professional cable production. The plastic used consisting of polyurethane is extremely robust and handy. Made in Switzerland VOVOX® sound conductors are hand-assembled in Switzerland. The cables, including the solder, are lead-free. Can you hear a digital cable? Is it possible that cables have an audible influence on the transmission of digital signals? One is one and zero is zero. The question is justified, the argumentation is correct. There is only one problem: practical tests show that even digital cables are indeed audible and neither we can offer any proven explanation for this phenomenon. However, what we can offer are cables that in our opinion yield optimal tonal results. Our digital cables are based on the same solid-core concept and materials that we use for our analogue cables. Moreover, the influence on sound quality is similar to the analogue cables: higher resolution, more detailed spacial depth, more natural sound - in short, more musical enjoyment. Minimized Boundary Surfaces Cables have many surfaces, or more precisely expressed, boundary surfaces, like the grain boundaries in copper, or the boundary between the conductor surface and the insulation. Each boundary is a source of imperfection. VOVOX® sound conductors are made of single solid core conductors. Using this construction, the total boundary surface is reduced by up to 90% compared to stranded wires. Cable coating with natural fibres The contact surface between the conductor and the dielectric medium must accommodate complex interactions. Thanks to the tried-and-tested solid-core concept, these effects can be efficiently reduced. VOVOX® textura fortis, textura and vocalis are further improved by a fine meshwork of natural fibres that form a protective wrapping around the conductor. Triboelectric phenomena are no longer possible. The difference is audible: tranquillity instead of disturbance, an incredibly tidy stage, perfect transparency. Care for your cables: listen to music extensively At the first-time operation VOVOX® vocalis sound conductors require a bit of time to fully unfold their potential. Connect your cables with your audio system and use them as always. After about 20 hours of playing music, the sound conductors will have reached their optimal condition and are “run-in“ permanently. In excellent condition. Original box (which has a few scratches). 12-month warranty. Please contact us for more information: 01334 570 666 info@eliteaudiouk.com

  12. Synergistic Research Black Fuse - 2A - £69 https://www.eliteaudiouk.com/product-page/synergistic-research-black-fuse-2a Welcome to a unique opportunity to purchase a great low-cost upgrade for your system - Synergistic Research Black Fuse - 2A - £69 SR Black Fuses encompass the latest understanding of passive Quantum Inductive Coupling and are their most powerful fuses to date. In addition to a proprietary conditioning process followed by a 1,000,000 volt signal we call Quantum Tunneling that alters conductive pathways within the burn wire, we add a Quantum Inductive Surface that includes Graphene to stabilize the electrical wave feeding your system for a dramatic improvement in system performance over standard and audio-grade fuses How fuses alter the sound of your system: For over one hundred years people believed electrons flowed like water through a pipe and that once ‘contaminated’ by miles of wire, there was little or nothing that could be done to ‘clean’ the electricity feeding your components. Consider this: the electricity feeding your system’s components first propagates through a single fuse. This is why significant gains in sound quality are possible when you insert an SR Black or Blue Fuses into each of your components. Today physicists understand electrons don’t flow at all but rather propagate in a wave of energy that moves along a conductor with a multitude of factors that alters this wave at the quantum level. To understand how electricity travels without electrons ever leaving their respective atoms it is helpful to consider the spectator ‘wave’ at a football match. Even though you can clearly see a wave pattern moving from spectator to spectator as fans raise and then lower their hands (without hands jumping from one person to the next), so too does electricity ‘move’ without electrons ever leaving their atoms. At Synergistic Research they’ve isolated key factors that affect how electricity propagates by changing the behavior of electrons through Inductive Quantum Coupling methods they collectively call UEF Tech. In fact, UEF Tech is so powerful even an electrical chain several miles long is fundamentally improved with nothing more than a single fuse engineered with our patented UEF Technology. Reviews "The more the fuses burned in the more the soundstage increased, harmonics grew denser, and grip in the bass became tighter. All of these attributes allowed this listener to become much more emotionally involved with the music." - Stereophile "There is an improvement in focus, as well as an improvement in transparency. There also is more perceptible decay to notes from un-amplified instruments (think piano), and a smoother sustain and extended decay to notes from amplified instruments (think electric guitar and synthesizer). Overall, the music has more purity." - Enjoy the Music In excellent condition. Original box and packing. Please contact us for more information: 01334 570 666 info@eliteaudiouk.com

  15. Heed Audio Enigma 5 Loudspeakers - £1,195 - RRP: £2,500 https://www.eliteaudiouk.com/product-page/heed-audio-enigma-5-loudspeakers Looking for something different in your next loudspeaker? Look no further than the Heed Audio Enigma 5 Loudspeakers - £1195, RRP - £2500 The Heed Enigma delivers an almost uncanny sense of “being there” with the musicians and instruments. It seems to transform the domestic listening space into the concert hall, or jazz club, where the music is fully present wherever you might be sitting. Tonality is natural and balanced all around the room, with fewer of the peaks and dips that occur when a speaker has to aim its output directly at the listener. The radical approach of this unique loudspeaker, however, only begins with non-directionality… The cabinet design of the Enigma looks simple, but is actually very sophisticated on the inside: hidden behind its understated façade it employs a unique solution ― the TMR™ loading of its bass-driver. TMR™ combines two normally ‘either/or’ loading principles: transmission line (‘TM’) and bass-reflex (‘R’), resulting in an exceptional bass response which defies the compact physical size of the Enigma 5 and successfully unites the exceptionally deep and voluminous bass of a ‘quarter-wave’ labyrinth with the remarkably fast and dynamic bottom-line drive of a correct bass-reflex tuning. The custom-made 6-inch damped polymer composite woofer and the Acuflex™ hand coated soft-dome tweeter from Morel, both with extremely robust Hexatech™ aluminum voice coil formers and wires ensure an exceptional response capability of short peak (10ms) transients up to 1000W. Carefully selected high-grade crossover components, inner wiring and connection terminals complete this sophisticated design. It is all combined to create a loudspeaker that reproduces music with a resolution, soundstage and almost palpable physical presence that is just astounding, especially in light of its very real-world price. Like all Heed products, the Enigma far outperforms its price class and challenges speakers costing several times as much. In some respects, possibly all directional speakers… John Darko sums them up very well...... The Enigma 5 is a loudspeaker that digs deep for sonic spirituality. There’s no shouting (or preaching) about what it unearths. There’s no collar grab. You go to it. Imagine watching a football match: the Enigma listening experience doesn’t put you pitch side for in-yer-face sweat and swearing. They put you up in the stands for a broader view of musical turf and instrumental game play. Delicate handlers of detail. A high-quality floorstanding meal with a portion size that’s just so. Brandies all round! Sit back and soak it up with friends. These are speakers for social gatherings. Opt for pretty much any listening position in front of the speaker plane and you’ll enjoy understated humility and enchantment In great condition. In their original shipping boxes and packaging. Provided with a 12-month warranty. Will be shipped on a pallet to ensure they arrive safely. Please contact us for more information: 01334 570 666 info@eliteaudiouk.com
