  Cardas Audio hybrid (poly-Teflon) capacitors, Cardas connectors, and of course Cardas cables. Cardas makes a very wide variety of products for the DIY community.

 

Consonance had their Ella push-pull, EL34 or KT88 or 6550 stereo amplifier. A simple bias adjust is all that is needed. Solid-state rectification, optional choke filter, yet uses the 6SN7 for driver. Comes in both kit and assembled form. This unit is offered by DIYHiFi Supply.

 

DIYHiFi Supply also offers a kit turntable called the BIX. It features a pulley-level bearing with ceramic ball and Teflon thrust plate. The Belgian-made motor is switchable for 33.3 or 45rpm while the platter is made from acrylic.

 

Omega Speaker had their Super 8 that uses the Fostex FE 207E whizzer cone driver. The front-ported cabinet is covered with blue while gold-plated cable binding posts appear the rear. Seen below in Omega's Super 3 single driver design with Fostex FE 127E (seen below). This unit is said to be very responsive to transience.

 

 

The Second Rethm loudspeaker has a Lowther DX4 triple whizzer cone mounted within an ingenious cabinet. Very stylish and wonderful sounding.
