Our first post...so let's get started!
We wish to thank AVForums SA for making their platform available to Commercial Members in the Audio/Video industry. It is indeed a privilege.
We have over the years met and dealt with many interesting, influential and knowledgeable persons in the AV (and pro-audio) industry; of whom many are now part of our circle of friends. Memories go back to the days of having good old-fashioned Hi-Fi Shows at the Indaba Hotel, Thula Thula Lodge (Schalk do you remember this one?!). These Hi-Fi Shows were followed by a few years of (expensive!) exhibitions at the Audio Video Appliance Expo that was held at the Sandton Convention Centre. Wow! Those were great times! And I am sure many of you were part of these shows and have many good memories to share.
One wonders why this has tapered off? Is it not time to get a good old-fashioned hi-fi show going again? I would say so, but this is a point for another discussion.
A bit more on what we are all about: AVCables was founded in 2004. Our main focus have always been to serve our customers by going the extra mile; and offering high-quality AV products that delight in every way yet at sensible prices. We started out by obtaining exclusive distribution rights for the multi-award-winning Ecosse Reference Cable range from Scotland UK after attending a What HiFi? Show in London and meeting up and spending time with the Ecosse CEO, Elliot Davis. Our range soon expanded when we landed distribution rights for the highly-regarded and legendary Spendor Loudspeaker range (also from the UK). Soon to follow was the Furutech Home Audio accessories range from Japan; as well as a headphone cable and electronics range from their sister company Alpha Design Labs (ADL). Much can be said about Furutech and many around the world regard their audio accessories (cabling, plugs, connectors and power solutions) to be of the highest quality on the face of the planet
.but hey, dont take their word for it - take a look and make up your own mind! Not having a range of hi-fi electronics, we next landed distribution rights for the multi-award winning Cyrus Audio range (also from the UK); mainly because of the sound synergy that many international reviewers reported between Spendor and Cyrus products. More lately we added two additional exclusive brands to our portfolio (both from Germany), namely Thixar which offers high-end active/passive vibration damping platforms and hi-fi racks; and ultra-high-end amplifiers and phono stages from ASR Audio. We will be running in-depth threads on the latter two products, seeing that they are completely new to our industry.
We wish to serve the AVForum family in the best possible way; and trust our inputs, threads and discussions will add value to your views, broaden your horizons, and also add some additional flair to your music life.
Where words fail, music speaks!
