Enjoythemusic.com has just published its "World Premier" review on Shuguang Treasure series 6CA7-Z and KT-88Z.
Reviewer Nel Ferre says: "Beyond good... these are great!" "I found that I preferred the Treasure Series 6CA7 to the regular grade Shuguang KT-88 in my system for their extended highs and midrange beauty. I appreciated the Treasure Series' bass texture, but I found myself wishing for more authority. That is where the Treasure KT88's extra bass grunt came into play. I found these to be my favorite of the lot, by a big margin. I found them to be the most balanced of the tubes I have on hand top to bottom, with incredible detail. Dynamics, both micro and macro... check. The Treasure Series KT88 really has it all — just like a Black and Tan. Keep in mind, I am not slighting the Treasure Series 6CA7 — I still preferred them to my usual tubes. This is high praise".
"Shuguang's Treasure Series 6CA7-Z and KT-88Z tubes are both stellar performers. ....While the Treasure Series 6CA7 is the only EL34 type tube that I have ever heard that I could easily live with long term, their KT88s (to my ears and taste) are even better yet. Though I prefer the KT88s both models are very highly recommended".

Stereomojo.com has just published the world's first review on the Grant Fidelity RBS-1 Reference Morel Bookshelf speakers. Reviewer Lorin Elias compared the Grant Fidelity RBS-1 with the well known Usher Be-718 intensively and Grant Fidelity RBS-1 is preferred 2 out of the 3 critial listeners.
"The bass from these monitors is extremely robust, tuneful, and all without bloat or a midbass hump that tries to fool you into thinking that they can do things they cannot. If you are considering these RBS-1’s and comparing them to some similarly priced floorstanders, don’t chose the floorstanders in hopes to get better bass response."

Being a Canadian company, first time on a major Canadian audio show, we have attracted some attention from the 27-years-old UHF Magazine. Featured products include: Grant Fidelity A-534 300B SET tube amp and just released Grant Fidelity LS3/5A speakers.
"Much smaller was a speaker from Grant Fidelity, based on the famed BBC LS3/5a design (Rogers was the best-known of several manufacturers making this small monitor). It was designed when high efficiency was way down on the list of must-have specs, and at 84 dB it requires a lot of watts to keep it breathing. Even so, the A-534B Grant Fidelity single-ended amplifier.... had little difficulty keeping up. "
