Many of you know how much I use Kat Edmonson’s music during audio demonstrations. If you live in the Capital region, now’s your chance to hear her sing in person, just across the border in Bennington. Go. Enjoy. You’ll thank me.Saturday, March 16 we will be at Masonic Hall, Bennington Vermont at 8:00PM.
(Hope you'll join us, Albany, New York!)

SoundStage! names Tsakiridis Devices Theseus as Best of Florida Audio Expo 2019.

US distributor Antal Audio Group was showing a brand of tubed electronics I’d never heard of: Tsakiridis Devices, of Greece, which apparently has been in business since 1987. The several components displayed in Antal’s room was only a sampling -- I picked up Tsakiridis’s price list and was astonished to count 20 models currently available, all with prices so low that I blurted out: “Are these made in China?” No, I was told -- they’re all manufactured in Greece.

Of the Tsakiridis components I saw in Tampa, it was the beefy-looking Theseus integrated amplifier-DAC that grabbed my attention -- partly for its striking build and appearance, but also for its rock-bottom base price of $1995. For that price, it comes outfitted with two EL34 output tubes, with which it produces up to 9Wpc. However, the EL34s can be replaced with KT88/6550, KT120, or KT150 tubes, with power outputs depending on the tube type used, maxing out at 25Wpc with KT150s... That’s not all -- the Theseus has switches to toggle it between triode and pentode (ultralinear) modes, and to select the amount of negative feedback applied. It also has a tubed moving-magnet phono stage; a headphone output, with another switch for silencing the speakers when ’phones are plugged in; and even a USB DAC (though I was unable to learn much about that). But even if the Theseus were only an integrated amplifier with no DAC or other add-ons, I’d be thrilled -- the rest is icing on the cake. I’ve got to get a Theseus for one of our SoundStage!
