THE ULTIMATE AUDIO STAND
Designed and built by F1 Audio
With so many companies building audio racks you'd think it would be easy to find one to fit your needs and budget - not exactly... We have looked extensively into the market to find the perfect fit to display the brands we sell. We needed several things, size to accommodate larger amplifiers, strengths to hold components exceeding 100 lbs, fully adjustable shelves, timeless looks to blend into any decor, and a price that wouldn't make the rack the single most expensive piece we owned. While we found racks that met one or two of these criteria, we never found a perfect fit.
We now proudly offer our own line of Audio Stands designed and built by F1 Audio.
Made from solid aluminum uprights and supports, easy to adjust heights, and solid wood shelves in your choice of wood type and finish. Our Audio Stands can be designed to accommodate a single amplifier or up to 96" of components.

KRELL CHORUS AMPLIFIERS
Buy now and save $1,000
Effective January 1st, 2015, the retail prices of the Chorus 5200 and Chorus 7200 amplifiers will increase to $8,500 and $10,500, respectively.
That means you have until Dec 31st, 2014 to make your purchase at the current prices of $7,500 and $9,500.
Krell's iBias Class A technology allows our latest amplifiers to run in full Class A mode to full power while minimizing heat generation. Previous efforts at using a "tracking" bias, while effective, only measured the incoming signal and set bias levels from this information. Our new patent pending iBias technology significantly elevates the effectiveness of previous designs by calculating bias from the output stage. This seemingly small change in topology results in a dramatic improvement in sound quality, especially midrange richness and purity.
"Best Loudspeakers in the World"
Audioholics picks the MartinLogan Neolith as one of the "Best Loudspeakers in the World". Click here for the full review.
There is a cult following of audioholics that live and die by electrostatic speakers, and for good reason. A really good ESL literally beams the sound into your head unlike a typical conventional cone driver speaker system is capable of doing. Neolith is a bold new loudspeaker, the product of an ambitious 3-year-long development process that combines the very best technology MartinLogan has to offer. Neolith features MartinLogan's largest-ever electrostatic radiating surface. Its proprietary curvilinear electrostatic transducer is allows the speaker to deliver an enveloping three-dimensional soundstage. Unique Controlled Dispersion Technology gives each transducer the ability to reproduce nearly the entire audio spectrum in any room. Neolith loudspeakers embody the MartinLogan ethos, and achieve "living sound"; revealing audio as it was originally performed.
