Now in its 14th year, the P75 has been upgraded to the mark 4. Let's run through some of the changes-
The first and most obvious change is the appearance, both inside and out. The chassis itself is larger than previous models, has an all new glass front panel, and a custom made DV gold earth terminal at the back.
Now for the meat... totally new ultra-low noise internal power supplies, electrically isolated from the AC power adaptor; power efficiency has been doubled; "bleeding edge" precision custom components providing extreme RIAA accuracy, and with more loading options available, the new mark 4 is compatible with virtually any cartridge on the market.
We have sent out demo units to nearly all of our trusted dealers, so get in touch with yours and have a listen.
The 2 pairs are the Shahinian Acoustics Arc 2 & the iconic Obelisk 2 loudspeaker.
If you've never heard these speakers before then you really should get yourself over and have a listen, your ears will be very grateful!
This week John travelled to Loud & Clear in Glasgow to help set up a real treat of a system.
Pay Loud & Clear a visit to listen to this wonderful ensemble in action and experience music as it should be.

Your chance to see and hear the beast in person. We're heading up to Loud & Clear on Vincent St. Glasgow, to showcase Well Tempered Lab's flagship turntable, the Royale 400.

Bill Firebaugh, Well Tempered Lab chief designer has been designing and developing his unconventional turntables for many decades. The Royale 400 is his latest 'piece de resistance'. If you are new to Well Tempered Lab turntables then the most striking things about the Royale 400 are the 16 inch or 400 mm arm and it's necessarily gigantic plinth. However these count as almost conventional compared to features like the zero clearance main bearing design and the bearing-less tonearm design. Not to mention the fixed geometry that makes fitting a cartridge almost as easy as using a plug in the headshell.
The Royale has a massive plinth that weighs nearly 50 Kg constructed of solid slabs of aluminium and a massive block of birch plywood. The multi layer nature of the plywood helps to dissipate energy providing a stable platform for the record to be supported while it drives the cartridge suspended by the tonearm. The length of the arm minimises tracking error. It also allows minimal bias to be employed. The overall result in performance is the most stable unfluttered sound from a Well Tempered Lab deck yet. But don't take our word for it, please listen for yourself.
A significant upgrade has been completed on this already fantastic phono stage. Dynavector's P75 mkIII phono stage now has a multi layer board, improved output amps and a better internal power supply. 1mV cartridges are now catered for, along with more settings for gain and matching, making the P75 a compatible companion for most systems.
No external frippery to inflate costs make it quite a giant killer.
The Larc combines at least half a dozen of Shahinian Acoustics best techniques. This is a speaker for high quality and scale in any environment where space is limited, larger boxes are unwelcome or acoustics are tricky.
Everyone boasts how their small speakers play much more bass than you'd ever think possible. I'm sure that those of you who know Shahinian Acoustic's views on speakers without true scale will realise that the Larc has to have broken the usual rules spectacularly just to be allowed out of the factory. We're not going to boast, much... We would just like you to have a listen and make your miind up.
We've used them in all sorts of systems in all kinds of ways: on floors, stands, bookshelves, lying on their backs, standing upright. They have worked with televisions, laptops, turntables, streamers, tuners, small amps and big amps. They've been to parties...and survived.
The Larc idea has been around for a good while as a work in progress mainly waiting for the right drive elements to appear. A recent SEAS bass unit proved to be the missing link for the Larc; along with the Obelisk 2 tweeter and the Shahinian Acoustics developed cabinet loading system in Finnish birch ply
