We are pleased to announce that we will be exhibiting McIntosh for the first time at this years Bristol Sound & Vision Show.
Partnering with Focal, we will be exhibiting the following system in Room 222:
Naim HDX Server / McIntosh D100 DAC (UK Exclusive) / McIntosh C500 Pre / McIntosh MC275 Mk6 monos (UK Exclusive) / Focal Scala Utopia
We will also be doing something rather different on the Terrace level by the bar where we will be powering an acoustic gig by fantastic brother and sister duo ‘The Luck’. McIntosh MC601 monoblocks will provide reference level amplification into a pair of the stunning Focal Stella Utopia loudspeakers. Just a little better than your average pub PA system!
Performances will be on Saturday and Sunday throughout each day. Specific times will be displayed at the show.
More info can be found at www.bristolshow.co.uk.
See you there!

Naims new UnitiLite takes the feature set of the award-winning NaimUniti, including high-resolution music streaming (up to 32bit 192kHz), CD playback, internet radio and iPod/iPhone/MP3 playback and distils it into an elegant, sleek enclosure. All you need to add is a pair of speakers to create an accessible all-in-one system that can put music at the centre of your life.
Don’t be fooled by the size of the UnitiLite. Behind its slimline fascia it incorporates several technologies and techniques used in high-end Naim electronics that allow it to deliver music with real energy and clarity. Its DAC chip is a close relative of the device employed in the high-end NDX streamer and its power amplifier design is informed by the classic techniques fundamental to the Naim sound. With 50W of power per channel, UnitiLite is more than capable of filling most rooms with the signature toe-tapping, spine tingling sound on which we’ve built our reputation.
Rediscover your music
Along with the conventional remote handset and front panel control, the Naim n-Stream app can provide comprehensive hand-held control of the UnitiLite from your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch. As well as providing intuitive control functions like playlist creation, album browsing and input selection, n-Stream lets you fully explore your music with expanded music information powered by Rovi’s vast online music database.
For further information please call our Bournemouth store on 01202 911886.

To meet your room aesthetics or personal preference, the speaker grilles are easily removed to expose the midranges and tweeters.
USB docking is available for all day playback and charging, with song selection and volume handled by the included remote control. Computers, TVs and other sources may be quickly connected for full range, high fidelity sound.
The McAire’s space saving design and room filling sound makes this system versatile enough to accommodate the audio needs of any room in your home.
The McAire is priced at £2995 and is available now. The first 10 pre-orders qualify for an introductory price of £2495 but, at the time of this article, there are only a handful of these places left so if you would like one at the introductory price you’ll need to act fast!

New in this month, Jordan Acoustics are very proud to announce the arrival of some very, very special loudspeakers from Germany.
For more than 30 years, Thomas Blumenhofer has been crafting some of the worlds finest horn speakers from his outstanding manufacturing facility set in a natural park in the south of Germany near Munich. Make no mistake, these are a true labour of love.
As Srajan Ebaen of 6moons has already done such a great job I thought it best to link you to a comprehensive write up and review of Blumenhofer which can be found using the link below:
Those craving a very REAL sound that isn’t in any way ’shouty’ as some horns can be, should look no further. Stock has now landed so we have a number of models available for immediate demonstration.
So if you are bored of the same old ‘box’ speaker design, these reference quality, hand made beauties from Blumenhofer Acoustics could well be for you!
Please call either our Bournemouth or Glenrothes stores for further information and pricing.

For over 30 years Focal has designed, developed and manufactured high quality loudspeakers and drivers out of their manufacturing facility in France.
We are extremely pleased to announce the recent arrival of Focal to Jordan Acoustics. It will come as no surprise that we will be focusing on the reference products, namely the Electra and the all-conquering Utopia series.
Starting at £1,999 and rising to a reassuringly expensive £121,999, the current Focal range features something for pretty much everyone. The Utopia series is also available with custom colour options so if you don’t like Black, White, Red or Chocolate you can choose your own!
Demo stock will be arriving over the next few weeks and, once fully run in, will be available for both in-store and home demonstrations. We will also be offering some exclusive 0% finance packages to make any purchase as convenient for you as possible.
For further details on the full range of Focal loudspeakers please call us on 01202 911886. We look forward to your call.

The “best” for Naim however isn’t measured in obscure technical parameters, rather, through the experience of owning, using and enjoying.
Listening to a Naim system for instance is not about “bass” or “treble” or “stereo image”, but about forgetting the illusion of reproduction and connecting with the music.
Choosing a Naim system is an experience like no other too. Choose Naim and the team at Jordan Acoustics will work tirelessly to make sure your expectations are not just satisfied but exceeded, and that the “best” is judged by the only person that really matters: you.

Every once in a while, a new manufacturer produces a product that is quite clearly a cut above the competition. In this case it is the American pro-audio manufacturer Bricasti. Retailing at £5995, this all new DAC significantly raises the bar in terms of price & performance.
The M1 is a dual mono design. This means that there are 2 completely isolated channels, a left and right, each with its own dedicated linear power supply, D/A converter, clocking, and analog circuitry. This design insures that analog cross talk is virtually non existent, and that the necessary power requirements for each channel are well met and isolated from each other and the digital processing which has its own power supply. With the twin DAC design, the dynamic range for each channel is optimized by using a the stereo ADI 1955 D/A converter in a mono configuration, plus clocking is for each channel done directly at the DAC with a technique called DDS (direct digital synthesis) which takes clock induced jitter to immeasurable levels.
The M1 is robustly constructed of milled and CNC machined aluminum sections. There is no typical bent metal chassis and top cover found on most products. All sections of the construction, the front and rear panels, the sides and even the bottom and top plates start out as solid blocks of aluminum which are precision machined to shape, with exact tolerances for a perfect fit. These parts are then anodized and the text and markings are laser etched for a clean and enduring look.
