What a difference a small screw made…

We added an M6 SS grounding screw under the base of our speakers a couple of years ago under the request of a customer that wanted to use a grounding device. We have a special situation in our speaker design: all the internal structure is made of high gauge steel and steel is a conductor. So why not connecting it to ground and use it as shielding/drainage of electromagnetic interferences that might affect the musical signal inside? From theory to practice it was a short step: Shunyata offered us to test their Altaira grounding system and we loved so much the result that we decided to use it at Munich HighEnd 2024 in our room. What happens is clearly related to a better shielding: more silence between musical passages, more defined image, deeper soundstage and more refined sound, smoother liquid notes, faster transients and very long sustained notes and decays. A clear improvement in music enjoyment and all of this at the cost of a small screw, well a bit more including the grounding device and grounding cable that is connected to that screw. Our external crossovers boxes do not need grounding as they are already heavily shielded inside.

New Decoupling Levelers O2

Alsyvox is introducing the new decoupling levelers O2. They are available as an optional upgrade for all Alsyvox loudspeakers, sold in groups of 4. 1. Made with several parts to achieve ideal decoupling but single piece handling, this makes speakers movements and positioning much easier. 2. High vibration isolation, can be experienced pushing the speakers and observing how freely the keep oscillating for long time. This helps getting smooth and resonance free midrange, with great benefit on voices and any musical instrument. Bass is tighter and more articulated, 3D imaging more focused and with more air between instruments 3. Double layer of decoupling, each level with 3 high precision stainless steel ball bearings. This helps a lot with floating wooden floors. 4. High precision cnc machined solid brass body, ideal material when vibration control is required, like with turntables 5. Very strong design to withstand our heavylodspeakers 6. Same height adjustment as standard rubber and cup feet (they use the same stainless steel stud) 7. 1Kg weight each 8. Nice dark grey nickel plating that fits perfectly with our glossy black speakers finish (on request gold and/or natural nickel with higher price) They can be used with great results also under electronics and racks, supporting each from 1 to 50Kg

Alsyvox in Australia

Fabulous trip to Australia on March 2024. Daniele and Paola had the pleasure to visit Rob Campbell (Purasound) their exclusive distributor, Jamie Levitt (Zen Audio) their new authorized dealer and attend to a nice presentation in Brisbane organized on March 15th by Rob. 25 music enthusiasts attended the presentation with a short introduction by Rob and Daniele, questions and answers and listening to all sort of music for more than 3 hours. In the coming weeks Alsyvox will feature at the Australian Hifi Show 2024 this April 5th-7th. Purasound will attend the Australian Hi-Fi Show 2024 in Room 22 Level 9 with a similar system: Tintoretto speakers, Pink Faun server, Aries Cerat digital to analog converter Ithaca and integrated amplifier Ianus Aperio Daniele explaining Alsyvox design principles to audience in Brisbane Daniele and Rob in Rob’s demo room with Tintoretto   Beautiful dedicated demo room at Zen Audio with Botticelli X Daniele and Jamie

Dutch Trip 2023: Alsyvox Top Speakers at Taiko and Amadeus Audio

Great fun and fabulous music in The Netherlands: one day at Jeroen’s (Taiko) with Caravaggio speakers, one day at Taiko (distributor) new demo room with Raffaello speakers, one day at Amadeus Audio (dealer) with Raffaello. Every system was really top performing: Jeroen made a 6,5 x 11m room with very nice acoustics and finish that is acting also as a garage for his beatuful car. Apparently the car helps with the acoustics 😉 he is still selecting amps and cables, but the system is already extremely musical, natural and detailed and image is crisp, wide and deep Taiko Audio reference listening room is a real laboratory where Emile is experimenting all sort of solutions before implementing them in his products. Size is really huge (8x14m) with a very big effort in the sound treatment with acoustic plaster on the ceiling and SMT solid wood on the 4 walls, the result is umbelieavably clean and powerful. Bass can really thunder in such a big space! Amadeus Audio in a down to earth music room of 4,5×11,5m fashinated me with a master cooking of music tracks both from CD and vinyl, to reproduce music that only eyes could break the illusion to be at a real concert. A big thank you to all of them!

Grand Tour of Rhapsody Listening Locations

We are just back from our tour where we visited 5 of the 6 Rhapsody Audio (our exclusive US distributor) listening locations. It has been a great experience to know all the great professionals that run the places: Bob in Brooklyn NY, Bob in Portland, David in San Francisco, Chris in Dallas and Jerry in Chicago. We had fabulous time together: dinners, lunches, trips in the country, wine tasting, parks visits. And of course plenty of hours of beatiful music listening: all rooms sound great, each different like every customers’ room is. Again this is the proof that Alsyvox speakers can play beautiful in any home. Also two meetings with local audio enthusiasts with a total of about 50 people were organized by David and Bob West. Thank you to all of you for your warm welcome and professional help!
