Tri-cell Enterprises, the Canadian distributor of numerous fine audio brands, has just announced that it will make several great audio brands available to the Canadian market – most previously not available to Canadian consumers. These include: Hana cartridges, Abis tonearms, Okki Nokki record cleaning machines, Acoustic Solid turntables and accessories, Vivid loudspeakers, Wells Audio headphone amps, Audiovector loudspeakers, and Transrotor turntables. Tri-cell Enterprises plans to showcase most of these brands at the TAVES Consumer Electronics Show (Oct. 28 to Oct. 30, 2016) in Richmond Hill, ON, giving consumer a first-hand chance to listen to many of these products.
Below you will find highlights about some of these brands.
Hana’s parent company Sibatech has been developing cartridges for more than 40 years and manufacturing them for a number of other competing brands. This Japanese company develops its products with a focus on the ease use and set-up, as well as high performance reproduction. Hana’s high output versions, EH and SH, supply 2mV output, so that they can be directly connected to MM phono input for vinyl reproduction. www.sibatech.co.jp/hana/index.html
Abis tonearms are also manufactured by Sibatech of Japan, and designed by some of the old designers of the Lustre and Fidelity research tonearms of the 70’s and 80’s. Thanks to exceptional engineering, these tonearms achieve a very high performance, and do so at a reasonable price. Abis also offers a streamlined version of the famous Dynavector 507 tonearm for about one-third of the price – a tonearm definitely worth taking a look at. If you like 3rd party recommendations, Stereophile gave them a Class A rating this past April. www.sibatech.co.jp/abis/tonearm.html
