One of the most attractive things is to design and create low and mid cost products. I think that it is rather easy to design very good audio products without specific cost limit: cost-no-object products are easy! Despite this, many of them are absolutely standard items, with standard sound and standard construction. On the other side, it’s common to see great looking products. What about what’s inside? Or: are we sure that the sound is important in cost-no-object audio products?

On the contrary, designing low and mid cost product is a great challenge. We cannot do all we have in our mind, we simply cannot! We need to choose. And, much more important, we have to find new ways! Yes, I don’t think we need to experiment in cost-no-object products to find new and effective solutions. We just need to experiment! How many companies can say they do research? Not only laboratory research and experiments, but listening tests!

Oh, yes, we do them!

Since December 2007, we offer a very high quality upgrade for the D/A converter DC-1.

Since then, customers are asking for already upgraded DC-1 increased very quickly.

For this reason and considering the far superior performance of the upgraded version over the standard one, standard DC-1 model we will be soon discontinued with the introduction of the Upgrade Edition.

AudioNemesis is offering the DC-1 Upgrade Edition. It’s a standard DC-1 with the upgrade set already in place, with regular official warranty and stickers indicating it’s an official model.

I found an interesting new article on the famous Italian DIY magazine Costruire Hi-Fi (#117), and I read it all. Did you read it? Please do it, because we can do many considerations. Just a few here.

Quality of audio articles faded. It’s very rare to find interesting sentences or results of experiments. Articles are mainly full of opinions, the trend is clear: all writers are the best audio designers in the world. All other writers or designers are wrong. No matter the topic.

Matti Otala was a great researcher. Yes, he did, he made really important considerations. Are we sure that after 30 years we must simply copy his work adding just a few marginal things? Electrocompaniet 25W was a great amplifier. It was. If you listen to it now, you can hear we can improve it. Please see the story here:

Despite many experiments opening to other solutions, it was very strange to me to find on CHF #117 a very standard schematic, without ANY original solution, with high level of NFB and you read that it’s one of the best amp you can use all around! Great guy, we were waiting for you!
