What I can say is that the Kondo Audio Note Overture is an extraordinary integrated amplifier. The one word that constantly came to mind was: purity. I can easily say that it is by far the best integrated design I've heard and certainly competes with the best separates.

Previous Updates: Acoustic System International
We are VERY PROUD to announce that we have been selected to represent the Acoustic System International (ASI) suite of products. ASI and its principal Franck Tchang offer a very special suite products, as well as groundbreaking technologies. Please take a look at Franck's offerings at FranckTchang.com or click on the Acoustic System International link from the drop down HiFI menu on this page. We are currently exploring the amazing capabilities of the "acoustic resonator" technology. We already have the acoustic resonators installed in our showroom and to say that we are "believers" in the technology is a vast understatement. One of the most interesting facets of the technology is how that it transcends the audio application area. Please give us a call if you would like additional information on any of the ASI offerings.
As you probably notice, we've also undertaken a website redesign. Our old site was getting unwieldy to update, especially since we're adding more products to our line card. We're also very excited to see that a top turntable manufacturer, Acoustic Signature has joined our suite of product offerings. We currently have the reference "Ascona" turntable in our Manhattan showroom.
Check out the HiFi+ review of the Acoustic Signature Ascona and call for an audition!

I thought about dividing this (Best of Show) award among several very worthy contenders, but the truth is that one speaker sounded more like the absolute sound than any of the others—and not by a small margin. That speaker is the new Raidho D1.
One of the most compelling attributes of my Goldmund system is that I can listen to music that I like, not only audiophile recordings, regardless of the quality of the recording, because even poorly recorded cd's sound incredible!
