More amazing reviews and awards coming in for Rega’s System One all-in-one box analogue solution. It’s always great to be able to share such positive feedback for a brilliant UK brand… we couldn’t agree more! https://www.acousticstreams.com/.../rega-system-one.html
“Whether you approach the System One with your heart or your head, it’s hard not to admire what Rega has achieved here. This is both a credible alternative to more conventional single-chassis all-in-one systems and a joyous introduction to what Rega offers as a company. It’s mightily impressive both in execution and performance and I’m completely smitten by it. If you’re looking for one of the purest distillations of the hi-fi experience on the market today, you’ve just found it”. - Ed Selley HiFI Choice
“As a means of bringing the Rega experience to a more affordable price point, it succeeds absolutely and Rega should be wholeheartedly congratulated for building it. As
a means of keeping a quintessential hi-fi experience affordable, it’s arguably even more successful and it is something that we should celebrate to the rafters for existing at all” – Hi-Fi Critic.
We’re pleased to share another successful install… This full T+A system compromised of the new A200 power amplifier, DAC 200 D/A Converter-Preamp, MP200 Multi Source Player and Talis Loudspeakers is sounding absolutely stunning! Combined with an Isoblue Hifi Rack, Tellurium Q cables throughout and a Michell Engineering Tecnodec this may be one of the finest systems that we have assembled. A very happy customer indeed!
NEW IN… High-end wireless speakers: the P9 and P6 BT from Escape are quite simply the best portable speakers we have ever heard! They have enough power to fill virtually any space in or outdoors. Truly wireless – enclosing a powerful rechargeable battery that provide either 16 hours playback at background level, or 8 hours at typical listening volume. You can even pair two Escapes for stereo configuration to up the performance further again. These are not like the any other wireless speaker you have ever heard before! Click here for more info.

We’re excited to be able to share these fantastic images of our new showroom and demo facilities with you all… we’ve assembled quite the treasure trove of Hi-fi! A special thank you to @adamgibbardphotography for lending us his amazing photography skills, we are really pleased with the outcome and couldn’t recommend Adam highly enough!
We are excited to announce that we will be once again hosting a Hi-Fi event at Acoustic Steams this November 10th & 11th. On this occasion we will be focusing on T+A, a brand that is quickly becoming a favourite of ours at Acoustic Streams.
Following T+A’s recent launch of their stunning new 200 Series – the event will feature the full line up including the DAC 200 D/A Converter-Preamp, MP200 Multi Source Player and A200 Power Amplifier, all of this paired with T+A’s superb Talis Loudspeakers!
A quick look into T+A, and you’ll soon come across their ethos, “Actually we’re scientists…” T+A standing for Theory and Application in the field of audio technology. Based in Herford, Eastern Westphalia since 1978 T+A have always aspired to create new advances in audio rather than follow the progression of the industry, sparing no expense or effort in their pursuit of Hi-fi innovation and sonic perfection. T+A’s team of expert physicists, engineers, and pure technologists produce some of the finest Hi-Fi equipment available; they don’t build mass products, they built acoustic treasures!
We will also be using Franc Audio Accessories and Tellurium Q cables in combination with T+A during the event.
Franc Audio Accessories’ ceramic footers, designed for isolating both electronics and speakers will be on show. Franc Audio’s technique of joining hard and stiff ceramic materials together with light aluminium alloy and elastic plastics has yielded amazing results.
Tellurium Q is probably our most popular range of cables. Since bringing TQ into our store, we as well as many of our customers have been very impressed with their performance. Winning press awards time and time again, as well as receiving glowing reviews on a regular basis; Tellurium Q is one of the most respected cable manufactures today, and with their range of cables they cover almost any audiophiles needs.
If you haven’t had a chance to visit us since our move to Drift, Penzance, the event will be a good chance for us to showcase our new shop and demo facilities. Running from 2pm – 8pm on November 10th & 11th. We will be hosting demonstrations slots each day, strictly booking only, for one person/couple at a time. Everyone will get the chance to listen to their favourite music in a one-to-one demonstration, you are also more than welcome to bring along any of your own digital music with you.
We hope you are all as excited as we are for this event, we are sure that the new T+A 200 Series will not fail to impress! We look forward to seeing some new, and familiar faces soon…
Now available for demonstration; Hana’s new flagship MC cartridge, Umami!... We’ve recently fitted this red beauty to our SME Model 12, and with just a short amount of listening time it has impressed us immensely. Amazing detail with superb presentation, we can’t recommend this cartridge highly enough!
Thank you to everyone who attended the Melco Audio workshop we hosted yesterday. It was great to meet a few new people as well as catching up with some familiar faces. A special thank you to Melco’s UK distributor Alan Ainslie from ADMM for speaking at the workshop. His knowledge on the development of digital music throughout the years is practically unparalleled, it was a real treat to hear what he had to say.
We’ll be hosting more events and open days over the coming winter months; we look forward to seeing you all soon.
A special thank you to Rob from REL Acoustics for visiting us yesterday and sharing his incredible knowledge about REL subwoofers and integrating them into systems from entry level to hi-end. An eye-opening process to say the least; with a meticulous approach to setting up REL subwoofers the results that can be achieved are quite stunning!
We spent time rigging REL’s Series S/812 Subwoofer to a few different systems; Exposure 3010S2D Integrated with Graham Audio’s Chartwell LS6/f Loudspeakers, T+A MP 3100 HV Multi Source SACD-Player & PA 3100 HV Integrated with Vimberg Amea Loudspeakers, and even a classic Naim Olive system with Naim Ovator S-600 Loudspeakers for good fun. Each system gained a significant performance boost, not just in the lower frequencies as you might expect, but across the board!
We also got a chance to hear REL’s latest release, The Carbon Special. An amazing subwoofer that pretty much blew us all away! We’ve got the new Series T/x Subwoofers on order, if you haven’t heard what a REL subwoofer can do for your system then please do reach out!
