    If you did believe in power cables..

    Hi, Here's the real deal. The cables were very expensive JPS. They came in a very nice Aluminium box. There were speaker cables and mains cables. The owner was very enthusiastic about the performance gains. Due to Geoff (Oldius) have two big rooms for the bake off, it was a ideal stiuation to try some cable swapping. To make it straight forward, we decided to try just a mains lead on the amplifier. The amp was a very fine sounding Lentek amp. Two cables were used, a JPS mains cable and a normal "kettle lead" mains cable. We initially went from Kettle lead then JPS lead, then swopping back and forth. Both the leads were plugged into a mains block and each was swapped over when in use. The amp volume was kept the same. The cables were swapped quite a few times. TBH, most of the people listening couldn't here a difference between the two. The owner of the cables seemed to be ecstatic when his JPS cables were in place. This did led to some people looking perplexed. Each time I changed the cable, I had to go behind the equipment and out of sight. As I was going to change the cable to the JPS, I had the brainwave of not changing the "kettle lead". I popped my head up and said "ready". So people thought the cable that they were listening to was the JPS. I did the "change" a few times, each time popping out of sight behind the equipment & not changing anything plus keeping the "kettle lead" in. Most didn't hear differences but the owner and maybe one or two others thought it was loads better when they thought the JPS was in. After doing this a few times, I got a fellow bake off buff to observe what I was doing and to keep quiet. I addressed the audience asking if they could hear big differences and asked what they heard in the last change. The owner did wax lyrically about the JPS. But then I dropped the bombshell of not changing the cables. The witness backed it up. Their were interesting looks on people's faces At the end of the day, if people want to spend big money on cables, it is up to them. It's their money.

    Hi, Akai, Grundig and Krell are all still going. Krell still make High end HiFi. Amps Dac, Streamers etc. Grundig & Akai have moved out of the HiFi market. Grundig make white goods (Fridges Freezers etc) , Akai make main stream consumer electronics. The Pro side of Akai (synths, samplers etc) was sold to Numark and is still strong. Tag McLaren were sold to IAG & become Audiolab again.

    Hi, Audio Innovations was formed by Peter Qvortrup and Erik Andersson in Basingstoke in 1984. They then moved to Brighton. Erik did the early design work (Series 800, 500, 300, 1st Audio & 2nd Audio). A chap called David Chessell also worked for Audio Innovations in 86. Erik left in late 1986 and Guy Adams (of Voyd trurntables) work with Audio Innovations. Also Guy Sergeant started around that time. They would have worked on later versions (& prototypes) of the Audio Innovations kit. Both Adams and Sergeant were engineering students at Sheffield Poly. David Chessell left in 1987 and formed Audion with Erik Andersson. David Chessell sold Audion in the late 90s, to Graham Holland, and the company moved to France. Peter Qvortrup sold Audio Innovations to Audio Components in 1991 and started Audionote UK. Guy Adams then worked with Audionote UK while Guy Sergeant stayed with Audio Innovations. Early Audionte UK stuff was the cheaper stuff, the expensive stuff was imported from Japan. Guy Adams left to work for Hewlet Packard in 1995. He also sold the right to the Voyd to Audionote. Andy Grove started to work for Audionote in the early 90 but took the main design mantle after Guy left. This led to producing High end British audionote amps.. Audio Innovations had big plans for some killer amps like the Third Audio, Fourth Audio, Fifth Audio etc, but these didn't hit the shops. Items like the P2 phono stage L2 pre amp, Alto amp appeared Julian Richer's Audio Patnership company bought Audio Innovations in 1996 and soon stopped making the valve stuff but continued to make to the Alto range for a while.

    Can you help with pricing here please?

    Hi, The Armageddon didn't have an LED where the switch was. It was a black blanking piece. Also, if you look in one of the photos, you can see a Naim box on one of the shelves plus the Main NAPSA is listed.The NAPSA is the Main Armageddon.

    Hi, It looks like it could be an Armageddon LP12. The picture is clear enough (from my tablet), it doesn't look like a Valhalla switch.
