Andrew Quint of The Absolute Sound "Best of AXPONA 2019" - Best Sound (for the money)
GoldenEar Technology Triton One.R. No contest. AND TAS Product of the Year 2019!
The Triton One.R is an extraordinary reference quality loudspeaker that is a smaller, less expensive follow up to their award winning flagship, the Triton Reference and they are amazing! We showcased them at AXPONA last April, and the room was "standing-room-only" all weekend. A great value !
Lots of products on display and a zillion years of hi fi experience. And then of course there is Trixie!
Come on in.
We now have a solution to the internal digital power supply that comes with the likes of the Mytek Brooklyn Dac+, the Lumin U1Mini and many more. We kind of think of those internal supplies as glorified wall warts. and do you really want your high end good sounding audio component powered by a wall wart ? Not us !
So we found a European designed, european built Linear power supply ! Imagine a large regulated external power supply, with a large toroidal transformer, heavy duty power regulating transistors with quality wiring, heavy duty, high current heavy pure copper traces on the current boards. The result as heard on our Brooklyn Dac+ was better everything, better bass, wider soundstage, smoother more extended less fatiguing hi's, etc etc. Best of all it's prices are very reasonable!
$399 for the Brooklyn Dac+ ( a super simple installation, there is 12V inlet on the back DONE ). $458 for the Lumin U1Mini (it also includes a replacement for the IEC power inlet, we recommend dealer installation for the inlet & removal of the internal power supply. Most voltages are covered form 5-24 Volts ! (mytek & lumin are 12V).
These power supplies will replace most any wall wart. This is an easy upgrade for anyone with a ProJect product, a Thorens table, etc!

DragonFly Black, the most affordable model of the award-winning DragonFly family, has been praised by Darko.Audio as “the quintessential everyman hi-fi product,” while its more sophisticated sibling, DragonFly Red, combines significantly improved performance with still exceptional value. The ESS 9010 DAC chip in Black and the higher-performance 9016 chip in Red employ minimum-phase filtering for naturally detailed sound.
While DragonFly Black uses a high-quality headphone amp and analog volume control, DragonFly Red includes a more advanced ESS headphone amp and a bit-perfect digital volume control that resides on the 9016 DAC chip itself—a sophisticated implementation that gives Red a unique combination of power and grip over the music. DragonFly Black outputs 1.2 volts—enough power to successfully drive all preamplifier input circuits and a wide range of today’s efficient headphones. With its higher 2.1-volt output, DragonFly Red is compatible with a wider range of headphones, including power-hungry, low-efficiency models.
DragonFly Cobalt, our new flagship DAC, takes what music lovers around the world have come to expect from the multi-award-winning DragonFly family—naturally beautiful, seductive sound—and strips away fuzz and fog that weren't even noticeable until Cobalt removed them. How is this possible? Like the critically acclaimed DragonFly Red, Cobalt has the robust 2.1-volt output to drive almost any headphone, uses a bit-perfect digital volume control for outstanding signal-to-noise ratio, enables seamless compatibility with Apple and Android devices, and is an exceptionally competent and affordable MQA Renderer.

PrimaLuna has pioneered numerous technologies to redefine tube amplification. From increased reliability and tube life all the way to our unique, signature sound. High-quality valve-based amplification has a smooth, organic quality that ordinary solid-state amps can’t match; yet for many people the price tags can seem prohibitively high.
PrimaLuna amps are designed to bring this magical, effusive sound quality to a more affordable price point, without compromising on build quality or performance. Clever features like PrimaLuna's Adaptive AutoBias circuitry – which makes it easy to switch valves without the amp breaking stride – add further value, ensuring PrimaLuna products are the epitome of 'affordable high-end' audio.
Here are some of our favorite models:
PrimaLuna EVO 400 Preamplifier

I have been purchasing hi-fi equipment from Saturday Audio for over ten years. I was initially drawn to them by their great prices and selection. I soon realized that the folks over at Saturday Audio are terrific to work with and are very passionate about their products. Living out of state, I've had the flawless experience of purchasing equipment from them both online and at the shop. Highly recommended!
I’ve been shopping at Saturday Audio Exchange for all of my audio visual needs for over 25 years. The staff is extremely knowledgeable, finding the perfect product, from a turntable to TV, always keeping my budget in mind. I would recommend Saturday Audio Exchange to anyone who wants quality merchandise.
I love the fact these guys are audio geeks, and helpful, and knowledgeable. They did not over-sell us and instead talked about our needs and our options in a practical way.
