Happy Thanksgiving!

You probably all know the type, the person who always puts it better than yourself...

One such individual is Mr. Chris Sommovigo of The Signal Collection and Stereovox Cables.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving allow me to share with you his words of wisdom, which hit my inbox today:

"As our family heads out to spend the Thanksgiving Holidays with my parents up at their "farm" (in quotes because they don't actually farm anything ...), and in the spirit of this holiday, I wanted to extend my gratitude to you for being a part of our lives.

This industry is a very strange one in that it doesn't really emulate anything else. We're related to one another by an intense passion for music, and for reproducing music in the home to a degree of excellence that most non-audiophile people in the world don't seem to understand. We share an especially high regard for the role that music plays in our life, and we get excited about the oddest things (just try and explain to anyone else how important things like VTA and anti-skating force are). We've got a fairly anonymous list of heroes - just try bringing up names like Edgar Villchur, Saul Marantz, Paul Voight, Julius Futterman, or Peter Walker at the office Christmas Party.

No - I haven't really found another industry quite like ours, and I'm thankful for that. We're an interestingly odd bunch of passionate music lovers who have found something akin to the Fountain of Youth: replenishing our bodies, minds, and souls in the waters of our favorite music playing through our carefully assembled audio systems.

You make it possible for me to enjoy one of the strangest careers in the world, to indulge in my peculiar cable-design talents, and to share the peculiar talents of other designers and engineers with you via our Collection of world-class imported gear.

Thank you for being a part of our lives, and thank you for including us in your life.

Best regards,

Chris Sommovigo


So for all eternity, when people ask us, what our clients mean to us, we will simply go "What Chris said!"

Happy Thanksgiving

Customer feedback

Dear Frederik,

Duelund Coherent Audio’s cast capacitors are superb. They do it all and they do it so amazingly well you’ll wonder why and how you’ve been listening to anything else. I’ve listened to the Mundorf Supreme and the Intertechnik Audyn Cap and that’s just it I listened to them. The Cast Capacitors from Duelund simply disappear, what I hear now are instruments and voices unleashed and untamed, each filled with their own natural beauty and distinct presence.

Humble Homemade Hi-fi has rated the Mundorf’s and the Intertechnik’s at 9 and the Duelunds at 14. I would say it’s more like a 7 for the first two, with a very significant jump to 21 for the Duelund’s. The truth is the Duelund’s are the only ones I’ve heard that are truly getting out of the way of the music, allowing for glorious highs, where notes hang like there being delivered from the heavens.

Outstanding job creating these magnificent works of art.

My gratitude to you all.

Encore les Francais...

We've added more French companies to our growing portfolio of manufactures choosing non plastic components due to the resulting sonic superiority.

Pierre-Etienne Léon


Above, is the man himself with his Maestral loudspeaker, which is currently all the rave in France. The company employs our full line of products.

Also, we are proud to announce that Klinger Favre has been using our components for quite some time.

Many of you will probably be familiar with this system: http://www.audioaddict.fr/audioaddict.fr/phpBB2/index.php?topic=54.0 , Klinger Favre was involved with this.

So how do you know if a manufacturer is an audiophile?

Well, one clue could be to check for a record cleaner in the actual workshop...

Currently cleaned, and in heavy rotation:

Great stuff for the components to listen to whilst in their formative stages. ;)
