Coherence Systems introduces the ADD-POWR line of accessory audio electronics. Our products incorporate specific software algorithms to generate low frequency patterns, amplified and induced into the immediate environment of electrical systems. The Sorcer line of electromagnetic field conditioners "re-references" or re-clocks the AC line with low frequency harmonics that neutralize noise.
The resulting energy boost to electrical signal strength may be as great as 1 to 1.5 decibel (dB) of energy to the audio system.
ADD-POWR is Algorithm Digital Defined Power - an energy reference technology developed to enhance the performance of audio/video systems. The products are electrical field generators designed to tune and harmonize audio and power signals and systems.
The technology adds a harmonic series of signals to the power line and broadcasts an electrical field, to affect a new reference, or bias, upon an audio/video system components' existing power supply and signal references. Signals of like frequency will resonate with other signals of like frequency.
This will result in an increase or boost, to the voltage potential, or the energy, of the existing signals of like frequency and its associated electrical field.
The saturation of a continuous "broadcast" in an environment will produce profound sonic benefits over time.

Who is Fina ??
Final was established in 1974. Its first product was a cartridge. It had a groundbreaking figure eight air-core coil with a cantilever cut from a one-carat diamond. Through its technology and ideas, final devised solutions for problems associated with the necessary evils of adhesives and iron cores; the resulting extreme clarity of sound was highly regarded. The companyÂ’s approach to things Â– pursuing that which is fundamentally right Â– is no different today, despite our focus having moved to headphones and earphones. In the process of developing Sonorous 10 - released this summer - and Sonorous 8, we went so far as to go back and create manufacturing equipment; in doing so, it took 3 years from our announcement of the models to their launch. Improvements made were low-key Â– we manufactured parts with precision and assembled them with high accuracy. The results were great. We are very happy to have the chance to showcase the fruits of our labor, Sonorous 10 and Sonorous 8. Final audio design has returned its name back to final, the name used when the company was first established. We intend to move forward producing not only earphones and headphones, but a variety of other products too.

The Paradigm Brand Story
Most speaker companies were started and run by a clever guy who had specific ideas about what was important in speaker design. He typically implemented his ideas with off the shelf parts, put them into cabinets, wired up a crossover and sold them. People’s reactions tended to be either love or hate – which led to the belief that what defines a good speaker is purely subjective.
However, Paradigm isn’t like most speaker companies. We combine science, engineering, art and manufacturing to produce speakers that are not only better sounding, but integrate better into the home and provide a better value.
We base all of our speaker development and design on landmark research that was done by Canada's National Research Council. Over two decades of double-blind listening tests with thousands of volunteers proved that 96% of people prefer speakers that have the following characteristics: flat, accurate midrange response; wide, smooth off-axis response (wide dispersion); and low distortion. We combine those parameters with industry-leading driver designs that gives every speaker we build significant low bass response and higher power handling than our competitors. The results are neutral sounding speakers with less of their own sonic signature, fuller bass and higher output than our competitors' designs.
We are known around the world for our performance and value. At the time Paradigm was founded in 1982, the top-ranking speakers that exhibited the 3 main NRC parameters were very expensive - out of reach of the average music lover at the time. So, Paradigm’s goal was to produce speakers that were preferable by 96% of the population, and also be accessible to the majority of people interested in music in their homes.
Paradigm's founders poured their money back into the company, building the largest, most complete speaker and electronics manufacturing facility dedicated to a single brand in North America, if not the world. This gives us an economy of scale that ensures the highest quality, performance, and value in the industry. Over time, repeat customers wanting something even better drove us to higher levels of performance with commensurately more luxurious industrial designs, fit and finish. As the prices rose in proportion to performance, being the best value in the market remained the same. Today we still rely on real science and engineering; we fine tune the speakers based on controlled listening sessions, wrap them in world class industrial designs, and build them ourselves from the ground up. Our approach produces speakers whose performance is less subjective or a matter of taste. Because they don't have a sound of their own they sonically get out of the way while gracefully integrating into a home. Paradigm speakers reveal the true essence of a recording better than any other brand of speakers in the world.

Pro-Ject Audio Systems was founded by one of Austria's leading high-end audio distributors, Heinz Lichtenegger, in early 1991. A genuine music lover and a dyed-in-the-wool audiophile, Heinz challenged the common "cost-no-object" approach to analog audio equipment by manufacturing turntables, tonearms, and accessories at a reasonable price without compromising build quality or sonic performance. With his passion for high-end audio fueling a desire to take a familiar industry in a new direction, Heinz proceeded to use Pro-Ject Audio Systems as a locomotive to bring high-end gear to the masses. Since then, Pro-Ject has been steadily gaining steam to assert itself as one of the most respected names in affordable, audiophile-grade analog gear. In 2007, Pro-Ject Audio officially launched Box Designs, a subdivision of the company dedicated to redefining the concept of audio electronics once again. Focusing on a small form factor that could easily integrate into any lifestyle, Heinz was able to pack the same sophisticated circuitry found in traditional high-end audio components into a box a fraction of the size. By adhering to that philosophy while still only using quality electronic components that deliver sound that far exceeds their stature, the engineers at Pro-Ject redefined what is possible in high-end audio and proven that great things do come in small packages.
We love music and high-end audio and have been building products and providing services that support both for 45 years.

The flood of fizz, hash, spikes, snap crackle and pop delivering itself into your sensitive dacs, preamps, amplifiers and video displays swamp and confuse everything they are trying to do…… and it gets worse! The DC voltages, normally present in your AC supply, smother and suffocate the transformers in your equipment. Transformers need to “breath” freely and fully, in and out, following the AC mains frequency. The presence of DC leaves them noisily gasping for breath and unable to deliver their full power and punch. When this occurs, the clarity, dynamics and emotion of the performance that you are trying to recreate is smothered under a barrage of interference pollution and waveform distortion. Your audio and visual equipment groans, buzzes and rattles, …. sound is constricted, muddled, harsh, two dimensional and unrealistic.
With the ‘Puritan Treatment’ dynamics and definition take an almost unbelievable stride forward, individual instruments gain air between them, their sound and timbre become convincing of the real thing, the sound-stage moves out of your speakers and into the room with gains in three dimensionality and clarity definition, and space between the instruments, for them to inter-relate rather than muddle each other. Your listening will become a far more engaging and pleasurable experience.

The Music Room is the go-to source for the very best in new, used and vintage home audio products. Founded on a shoestring budget in 2011 by Joshua and Melissa Jackson, The Music Room is now the largest online retailer of pre-owned HiFi equipment in the world. Headquartered in beautiful Erie Colorado, The Music Room is a team of 26 strong (and growing) music lovers - all dedicated to one singular mission: delivering the very best online shopping experience in the audio industry - period. We specialize in well-cared for, previously used gear because that is what we are passionate about. We feel that there is nothing more fulfilling than creating a high-performance system on a budget with carefully selected used components, speakers and cables.
Over the past 9 years, Joshua Jackson and his hard-working staff have shipped over 35,000 pieces of gear to satisfied customers all over the world. That's 40,000 items tested, cleaned, photographed, listed and shipped. That’s 40,000 audiophiles who have provided valuable feedback about what’s important to them when they buy used gear online. If all that of that feedback could be boiled down to one word that encapsulates our approach to customer service it would be “trust”. We are very proud of the trust that we've earned over the years of serving such a vibrant community of audio enthusiasts.
Our inventory changes daily - generally about 175-200 products per week are listed for sale. These products are acquired primarily from dealers, installers, manufacturers and private collectors. Everything is fully tested, cleaned and function verified before being made available for sale. Our stellar reputation and world-class online feedback ratings have been earned through careful attention to detail throughout the entire process. This includes our “best in class” packaging process, our 14 day satisfaction guaranteed return policy, and a 45 day warranty. Unlike a “typical” online used sale, our job doesn’t end with shipment of the product. We have a staff of knowledgeable sales people and technicians who are here to assist our customers after the sale - whether they need technical support, upgrade advice or assistance liquidating the gear they just replaced.
Our doors are open to sellers across the United States that are looking for a fair, risk-free, no-hassle way to liquidate their used gear. With just a few easy steps, a seller can have cash in the bank for their next purchase, and we will do all of the work to find a good home for the previously used gear. Because of our high-volume / low-margin approach, we are able to pay a fair rate for used gear - well above what most folks would consider to be a “wholesale” price. Logistics is our specialty, and we can generally handle 100% of the packaging and shipping regardless of your location.

Vandersteen Audio always has been and always will be a technology company. Vandersteen speakers for decades were built around Richard Vandersteen’s patented reflection-free aerodynamic midrange drivers, which remain paragons of low-distortion musicality. Minimal-baffle cabinets, bi-wiring, resonance-reducing spiked feet, battery-biased crossovers, high-pass-filtered powered subwoofers and powered-bass speakers with built-in room EQ are just some of the innovations that originated with Vandersteen Audio’s speaker products.
Vandersteen Audio’s speaker designs today are built around the most advanced dynamic drivers ever conceived, the patented Perfect-Piston™ drivers featured exclusively in Vandersteen Audio’s Model Seven Mk II and Model 5A Carbon speakers. Richard Vandersteen spent 10 years developing these Perfect Piston drivers, which utilize a totally unique carbon-fiber/balsa wood/carbon-fiber sandwich that provides perfectly pistonic driver performance and accuracy without the sonic colorations inherent in metal drivers.
These innovations illustrate the difference between a speaker company and a true technology company, and begins to describe why listening to Vandersteen Audio’s speakers and electronics is such a transcendent, one-of-a-kind musical experience. The kind of unforgettable experience that stands out in a world of products that are all “good.”
Vandersteen Audio designs and manufactures time- and phase- correct loudspeakers and cutting-edge electronics. All Vandersteen products are proudly designed and manufactured in the USA, in Hanford, CA.
Our loudspeakers look, and sound, unlike any you’ve ever experienced before.

Which means you get to enjoy the music you love in a whole new way: exactly as it was written, performed and intended to be heard. As an engineering-led company, we build our loudspeakers to rigorous technical standards, not price points. Whichever Vivid Audio speakers you choose, you’ll benefit from the same world-class, handmade drivers, crossovers, enclosures and other technology. Whether you’re a dedicated audiophile, discerning music lover, home entertainment aficionado, or someone who recognises, expects and demands only the very best, you’ll find your perfect loudspeakers here.

Established in the year 2002 by Mr. Yoav Geva (Gonczarowski), the YG Acoustics brand is sold in over 25 countries worldwide. All of our speakers are handmade in house at our factory in Denver (Arvada), Colorado.
Since 2004, YG Acoustics has become one of the strongest brands all over the world. YG Acoustics is always expanding it\'s marketing reach on a global basis. The strength of YG Acoustics in Asia and Europe has led to distribution in many other parts of the world as well. In the U.S. there is a strong marketing campaign in major audiophile print publications as well as many web based publications.
YG Acoustics loudspeakers are designed and optimized using proprietary software developed entirely in-house. While it seems obvious to non-industry members that any serious high-tech company should create its own custom tools for critical tasks, in fact nearly all other loudspeaker brands worldwide rely on a single off-the-shelf design suite, in which the core is predominantly over 10 years old. The result, as discerning audiophiles have already noticed, is that all of those loudspeakers suffer from the same problems, and those deficiencies prevent them from sounding even remotely like ï¿½the real thingï¿½. YG Acoustics software is highly advanced and uses technology developed by Mr. Geva from scratch, i.e. it cannot be found in scientific publications. This, combined with cost-no-object construction using aircraft-grade aluminum with no wood-based materials whatsoever, ensures performance unparalleled by the competition. When driven by adequate electronics and correctly set-up, YG Acoustics loudspeakers are completely capable of fooling the human ear into believing that it is listening to live music. YG Acoustics\' major technologies are: DualCoherentï¿½ crossovers, FocusedEliminationï¿½ damping technology, and many more on the horizon.

So it was with the Anats. ...singersï¿½ various vocal pitches were cleanly and (hereï¿½s that word again) vividly displayed across a wide, information-packed soundstage.\" \"...such was the Anatsï¿½ combination of clarity, speed, and agility...\" \"...a high overall level of transparency, and pinpoint imaging within the soundstage.\"
September 2009: In Positive Feedback Online Issue 45 Adam Goldfine reviews the Anat Reference II Studio speakers. He comments:: \"goose bump inducing realism\" and \"sounds seemed to materialize out of thin air to startling effect\". \"Their ability to resolve fine nuances of low level detail and ambience gave them the ability to recreate acoustic space like nothing I\'ve heard and was nothing short of astounding.\" \"Freedom from strain and compression...I found the Anats to be transcendent in this aspect of performance.\" \"More than any speaker I\'ve heard, I felt I could rely on them to tell the truth with no editorializing, almost a Zen sense of bringing nothing to the music.\" \"Am I gushing? Yes. Is there reason to? Yes.\"
October 2009: Issue 196 of The Absolute Sound, Editor Robert Harley gives a sneak peak of our Kipod Studio which is slated for review. \"We\'ve heard the Kipod at several shows and have been greatly impressed by its transient speed, tremendous clarity, and high resolution.

January 2010: Issue 199 of The Absolute Sound, Editor Robert Harley reviews the Kipod Studio. He comments: \"...the kipod was capable of an enourmously appealing and captivating sound. It disapeared in the sense that it was a transparent window on the music, with extremely low coloration.\" \"Transient information had a coherence that was world-class; although highly resolving of dynamic shading, transients never into mere noise. Instead, I heard...transient-rich instruments rendered with a completely natural and organic quality...\" \"...its resolution was musically authentic, not an artifact, which allowed very long listening sessions.\" \"...the Kipod Studio was utterly magical.\"
