Liquid Gold - 2014

post #1 of 97
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone. Since the original LAu thread has been locked, I'm starting a new one.

 

First, many thanks to Jude and his team for the video:

Thanks for the appreciation of the LAu.

 

Also, Cavalli Audio is still evolving. Over the next month I will have more to say about this.

Is there a way to take advantage of the specials without attending the meet?

Just a bit tricky for we folks in Asia to travel all the way to the other side of the pond, thanks.

Awesome discount! Great sounding pair of amps!

 

Mr Speakers sometimes carries the LG(lass) to demos with his Alpa Dogs, and the amp did a wonderful job w them (understatement). Furthermore, say whatever about the Abyss looks, they sounded awesome out of the LAu (Liquid Gold).

So glad to be going to the SF Bay Area meet! Really excited to hear these special amps myself.

That's a massive discount on the LAu!! Lucky for you folks going to the meet :D.

Had i not purchased my LAu earlier this year, it's almost worth buying a plane ticket there to buy one.

At full price, it surpassed my expectations. I would be surprised if the Pinnacle proves to be a better headphone amp (but may be a better pre amp). And to my ears, it is streets ahead of the Bakoon amp - which is the in region of the reduced price. This is a no-brainer.

Hello folks. As many of you know I had some meet specials at the recent Bay Area meet (what great meet this was). There were many emails asking about this special, many from individuals who could not attend the meet.

 

As a result, we are going to continue this special, starting today, for the remaining units in the current Liquid Glass and Liquid Gold Spring production runs or June 15, whichever comes first.

 

After all of the emails that I received from so many of you I felt that I wanted to make these great amps accessible as best I possibly could.

 

New prices are:

 

Liquid Glass - $2950

Liquid Gold - $3950

 

Also, for those who have interest in Liquid Glass, we probably won't schedule another production run for a while. Liquid Glass is a complicated amp to build and a specialty item for those who really want to roll lots of tubes. It also happens to be a great sounding amp!! if you are interested in Liquid Glass, now would be a good time to grab one. :smile:

The table was PACKED at the SF Bay Area meet. Man oh man is this a good deal! I'm super excited that this can be offered to folks who couldn't join us locally.

 

The Abyss + LAu combo blew me away. I'm seriously rethinking my setup.

Great deal for sure!  Almost a steal!    But OUCH for the early adopters who ever try to sell!  :deadhorse:

That kind of drop would sure piss me off. Makes you wonder where the real price should have been all along.

Or maybe you should learn about how distribution and dealer models work AND realize that this is something special for the Head-Fi community.

 

You know, you could focus on the fact that Alex's message is awesome:

This is a finite deal and it sounds like this is it for the Liquid Glass for a while. I'd jump while you can. Who the heck else sees a lot of interest in a crazy deal specifically for an event then extends it out to make it available to everyone?!? I've gotten a bunch of meet specials in my life but I've never seen them extend outside of that context because people there was such interest outside of the meet.

post #15 of 97

I was one of the first people to buy a Liquid Gold after hearing a demo of it.

 

Am I upset over the sale? Nope.

 

Being an early adopter potentially means missing out on later deals, and I understood this going into it. Rather than fuming over what I feel I've missed or what I feel I'm owed, I instead choose to focus on what I've gained: I've had many months of pleasure listening to my setup, thanks in large part to the LAu.

 

Meet deals are common place in this industry, and I think it was nice of Alex to extend the sale to folks who couldn't make it to the meet in person. I'm happy for future owners who will get a deal on the LAu, what I feel to be a truly stellar amp.
