It's nice to see him back with a shop front and even better, being situated in Adelphi - with a larger and more comfortable listening environment.
As enthusiastic as always, Steve gave me a quick run through some of his new products. First up was a very nice direct drive turntable from Tien Audio Studio of Taiwan.

No introduction was necessary for his next product - you can't help but not notice those massive speakers at the main listening area - DynamiKKs! Having a short listen to these beauties (I like the look of these speakers, although their unconventional looks will definitely be a matter of taste), the brand name and the exclamation mark is not for show - these speakers deliver a lethal punch, life-like dynamics and sound really impressive ! Pictured below is the Monitor 8.12 (named after the 8 inch coaxial and 12 inch driver used).
We spoke a bit about his modification for the Mac Mini, and his new power cord with a figure of eight connector - perfect for the Mac Mini and his choice of router, the Apple AirPort Extreme.
Steve also showed me an upcoming product. It's certainly very interesting and I won't spoil the surprise.
