Analogue passive enhancers

"It tightened but did not overdamp bass, clarified but did not parch the midrange, and improved high frequency transient focus and clarity." - Michael Fremer, Stereophile , June 2022

"With every record, every genre of music, the results were the same - more details, better and deeper stage, improved imaging."

- Alex Gorouvein, Hifialex.com

“I was no longer listening to disparate instruments, but hearing compositions as a unified whole……….I’m very impressed, not only with the sonic benefits but the pride of ownership this finely crafted instrument will bring its owners.” 
- Rick Becker , Enjoy the music, Nov 2022

Prime Reference APE

Engineered from Mpingo with a cocobolo top surface. These tone woods are the pinnacle of musical resonance control.

Uncover inner details and previously unheard nuances while simultaneously  blackening the blacks .   Subtle at times, more pronounced at others, it does nothing wrong.  Our vibration stabilizing APE's work in much the same way as our racks,  the best tone woods supersede stainless steel and aluminum.

 

100% hand-made, one at a time. Finished and buffed with Odies Oil.  Quality mpingo is extremely rare and difficult to obtain.  We make every attempt to use air dried and top grade mpingo, Lignum vitae and Snake wood in our weights.  Not only are these tone woods held with the highest regard, they're also the most rare  and expensive woods on the planet.  Irregularities and inclusions in the grain should be considered character and proof of the unique material and process, thus making each weight an artisan, one of a kind piece.
