COVID 19 – We are all so lucky in Canberra to largely continue life as normal, albeit with the huge loss of so much live music. I know my own Hi-Fi helps tremendously with sanity over these times, and I often hear of good Hi-Fi helping others. Thanks for the encouraging support messages throughout these times, they are much appreciated. Audio Apartmento continues to offer (and support) your Hi-Fi solutions, with appropriate social distancing. Contact Allan anytime here or phone 0498 127 097 for expert assistance and advice.

Audio Apartmento is very excited to be appointed the Canberra agent for the Award-Winning Fyne Audio speaker brand.

The full range of Fyne Audio speakers is now available through Audio Apartmento, with the F3, F300 and F500 series available on-line here. The specialist F1 and F704 are also available but given their size and installation requirements are not offered on-line. Contact Allan here for further information or to arrange a demonstration.

- Home Cinema Choice magazine awarded Qb the Best Compact Music System 2016, noting that “The Mu-so Qb’s ability to integrate with existing Naim components is sure to make it a popular choice with fans of the brand.”
- Hi-Fi World named Qb the Best Wireless Loudspeaker of the Year 2016. The reviewer writes “This is not just a wireless loudspeaker but more a full hi-fi system in a compact package.”
And Hi-Fi+ magazine has named the Naim NAP 300 DR Power Amplifier of the Year in their 2016 Awards. “…the NAP 300 DR shines out as a perfect expression of what Naim does so fundamentally right in all its products. In our test, Roy Gregory was deeply impressed by its “presence and dynamic authority of its mid-bass, so vital to the feeling of instrumental identity, scale, and power, the intimacy it brings to vocals, its agility and poise, its easy sense of tempo, be that relaxed or hesitant, measured, or urgent.” Read more here Hi-Fi +142 Awards2016_Naim_NAP300DR

Mu-so Qb Wins EISA Award – Just Like Mu-so
Naim are delighted to announce that Mu-so Qb, their compact wireless music system and little brother to Mu-so, has won the highly sought-after EISA Award for Best Compact Hi-Fi System, just as the original Naim Mu-so did in 2015.
The badge is reserved for the single best products within their categories chosen by a panel of 15 expert judges – the editors of specialist audio magazines from across Europe, who have been running the awards for 33 years.
Every year, the EISA (European Imaging and Sound Association) Awards applaud new products that combine the most advanced technology, the most desirable features, the ultimate expression of design, the most satisfying ergonomics and of course, the greatest value for money. In short, EISA recognises the features most likely to be appreciated by an enthusiast public seeking high quality and creative facilities.
Mu-so Qb beat hundreds of competitors to take the home the only award in the Compact Hi-Fi System category. Its combination of five speaker drivers and two pistonic bass radiators controlled by its advanced digital brain, paired with advanced connectivity including high-res streaming, AirPlay, Spotify Connect and Bluetooth (aptX), impressed the judges. Ultimately though, it was the sound that captured the judges’ imaginations and Qb’s ability to bring you closer to the music. More information here. Shop here.

Introducing Super Lumina
High-end interconnects and speaker cable
Designed without compromise for pure musical performance
Every link in the audio chain is important. It’s something Naim Audio have confirmed time and time again in listening tests. That’s why during the development of Statement, their flagship amplification system, they began a project in parallel to design a completely new range of high performance Naim cables. They started with a blank page, specifying each element using their expertise in cable construction and material science and based on the results of thousands of hours spent in the listening room testing prototypes.
Announced today 15 May 2015 at the Munich High End Show:
Naim has introduced a new and improved range of power amplifiers with Naim DR (Discrete Regulator) and Statement transistor technology.
The NAP 200, 250, 300 and 500 power amplifiers have been revised and reintroduced for 2015 with output transistors developed during the work on the Statement project alongside Naim DR (Discrete Regulator) power supply technology.
