Updated the EDGE prices lists.
Removed the prices from the EDGE product page because manually keeping the
prices sync'd up in two places was a pain. (9/26/2006)
We now awesomely carry the ELROD
line of fine power cords. Price and photo pages will be up 'shortly'.
We attended the Stereophile
Show, as well as the VTV show , in Los Angeles June 1st-4th. We of
course provided our trademark massive coverage by way of our show
reports. If interested, please check out our
Entertainment HE 2006 Show Report and
Vacuum Tube Valley West VTV
2006 Show Report.
RateMyHifi section of the website. This

do not get lost in the dust bin of time. Of course, all of our guests are
also invited to enter their favorite pictures of their systems and
components as well!
turnkey / recommended systems page to
be a little more easy to understand and to include some Kharma
loudspeaker-based systems. (5/15/2006)
Added many photo galleries:
Kharma, Lamm, Jorma Design, Emm Labs, and probably others. There is now a
gallery per each product, instead of one per product line.
An easy way to get to them is through the
Sitemap and clicking on the gallery
of interest in the Products section.
By the way, using the 'Audio Federation' link at the top of most of our
webpages to get to our home page, and then clicking on the Sitemap in the
lower right-hand corner, every page in audio Federation at most just 3
clicks away from any other page.
Audiophile's Guide to the Galaxy's
High-end Audio Magazine

high-end audio BLOG!
Audio Federation is excited to

The Montreal FSI

We are proud to announce that we
now carry the awesome line of Kharma
speakers and electronics.
We started building the
Audio Federation Catalog which
unabashedly shows off the beauty and excellence of various components that
we carry. (2/25/2006)
Added a new set of
prices pages to replace the
old monolithic list. Hopefully, as we
move to lists with helpful little thumbnail photos (for example see
Marten), the new price lists will
be easier and more enjoyable to use for all of us.
Edge (a wee bit tardy on this one) and
Marten pages as per their new product lineups.
and many updates to our product pages, especially focusing on adding a lot
of photo galleries (now easily accessible through aforementioned sitemap).
Added links at the
top of each
tour page so that people can easily see how they can go backward in
time to see how our rooms looked 'way back when'. Let's just say that
digital cameras have improved a lot these last few years, shall we?
to be the directory to the
BLOG - now it is easier to see and get to the older posts.
Updated much of the
Guide and have taken an entirely different tack than we used to on the
speakers page. Also note we have added a number of photo galleries to
turntables page - which should get updated every show we attend.
Put the Acapella
stuff on the
specials page with a details link to the
Acapella archives (still need
to put the Fondato Silenzio isolation platforms up on the specials page.
If anyone is interested in these - we have five - let us know!).
Brinkmann Audio section to our
website. Added Balance turntable
assembly pictures. Still need to add the narration (and remove
duplicate pictures!) and 'turntable setup' section (2/4/2006)
Walker Audio section to our website.
Still need to add unpacking, assembly and setup pictures we took 2 years
We are saddened to
for the foreseeable future we will no longer be authorized dealers of
Acapella Audio Arts speakers. We were the largest Acapella dealer on the
American continent and by far the most visible experts on and advocates of
Acapella in the world.
To our Acapella customers: we still stand by you and your excellent
speakers 100% and will not hesitate to support you, with the same
dedication as always, in the unlikely event you should ever require it.
After several emails from the current U.S.
distributor requesting that we remove the Acapella information we have
collected over the last 4 years from our website, 35MB(!) worth, we have
moved it to a less accessible
place. Gone, but not deleted.... (2/2/2006)
price list for HRS: Harmonic
Resolution Systems products (1/29/2006)
Expanded number of
items in price list for
Marten Design's product line. (1/27/2006)
We no longer carry
the Accustic Arts line of products This is the first time we have removed
a product line since we started business 4 years ago. We stuck with the
line through changes in distribution and hung in there during the
subsequent price increases [etc. etc. etc.]. Finally, however, the
distributor objected to our recent luke-warm review of their
room shared with Acapella this year at CES 2006 and we came to a
permanent parting of the ways. Accustic Arts makes a quality product and
we wish them well. (1/23/2006)

Added the Acapella
Fidelio 2 monitor speaker to the Acapella
Removed the Audio
Aero Capitole Mk II from the featured
page as it is no longer being made and has been replaced by the Capitole
Reference. That leaves us with just the Acapella Triolon Excalibur
speakers, the EMM Labs / Meitner DCC2/CDSD digital front end, and Rix Rax
equipment racks on the featured page. (12/15/2005)
Entries are added
to the blog one or twice a week over the last
few months. We started a music centric

Acapella Fidelio 2 monitor speaker (9/26/2005)
Added Jorma Design
cables to the website. We actually picked up these cables last... Spring
was it? but Mike... (me)... was a little lax on the updating of the
website. Jorma No. 1 cables are the only cable we have found, so far, to
be in the same league as Valhalla ... i.e. its purpose is not to
compensate for problems elsewhere in a system, but to let through as much
music as possible. (9/18/2005)
Audio prices to the prices page.
Updated Audio Aero
