Denmark has a long tradition in High End Audio. There is something about the people of this country that strives for excellence in engineering and in the arts. When Michael Børresen and Lars Kristensen created Ansuz Acoustics and Aavik Acoustics, they honored the Danish mantra. They envisioned products that would deliver maximum naturalness, recreating music as it was intended to sound.
Aavik Acoustics is the brand that comprehends unique-looking and ravishing sounding amplifiers. From the U-300 integrated amp (or the smaller U-150) to the impressive-sounding C-300 preamp and M-300 mono blocks, Aavik components are precise, powerful and musical. If you have not heard them yet, you should. We can guarantee you that you will be satisfied with the experience.
Ansuz Acoustics, on the other hand, has a full line of cables and accessories that bet on and succeed at the improvement of any system’s sound. Adding Ansuz products to your music chain will result in increased sound quality, less noise, less distortion and less impedance. Particularly with the D-TC models, you will immediately hear the difference.
Michael and Lars are a solid team that combines genius design with great industry vision.
Stay tuned for our next Aavik and Ansuz event this Fall!
THE ROAD OUGHT TO BE WALKED.
Michael possesses a curious mind and continues in the search of the Holy Grail of high-performance audio. His next venture is his own speaker line. He has already teased us with some Børresen Audio prototype pictures. Michael was the former designer for Scansonic and the incomparable Raidho speakers (which Blink High End proudly represents, since we consider the Raidho D5.1 one of the best speakers in the World).
We are eager to find out what his new creations sound like.
On July 12th we had a full house with our audiophile friends. Linn’s Michael O’Rourke conducted a captivating music documentary with the Pink Floyd’s most representative tracks.
We had a very participative audience enjoying the high-resolution performance of Pink Floyd masters reproduced on Linn Klimax DSM. Michael knows well how to tell Pink Floyd’s super interesting story behind every track.
We spiced the presentation up with souvenirs, appetizers and champagne. We just want to say… “Wish You Were Here”.

Elac’s Adante is the newest speaker series designed by Andrew Jones. And they are quickly gaining 5 stars reviews in the audiophile world due to their impressive price/performance ratio. We invite you to listen to the beauty of the full-range AF-61 ($5,000/pair), the big sound of the stand-mounted AS-61 ($2,500/pair) and the power and versatility of the SUB3070 ($2,500).
Elac Adante sound, look and feel is truly high-end, for a fraction of the cost of other speaker systems.
Adante’s advanced design starts with a precision-built cabinet that features Interport-Coupled Cavity bass loading to exploit the highest performance from new active and passive bass drivers. The inherent superiority of this design solution delivers some of the most authoritative, realistic bass around. Complementing Adante’s custom low-frequency drivers is the all-new concentric midrange/tweeter, a natural-sound wonder engineered expressly for the Adante series. To make sure they look as good as they sound, each Adante cabinet features a furniture-grade finish in a choice of gloss white, gloss black or genuine satin walnut veneer. The face of each cabinet is an elegant, bonded-aluminum front baffle for maximum rigidity, contoured to incorporate waveguides that ensure optimum dispersion from each driver.
The Adante AF-61 Floorstanding Tower, AS-61 Stand Mount Monitor and AC-61 Center Channel each represent a “clean sheet” design unique to ELAC, where technical solutions, precision engineering and superior craftsmanship all come together to create a breathtaking trio of loudspeakers that sound—and look—like nothing else in the world. Go ahead and challenge Adante with everything you’ve got. We did. Further proof that ELAC is the life of sound.
GREAT REVIEWS, AWARDS AND… ABBEY ROAD STUDIOS!
The Technics SL-1200G direct drive turntable continues being one of the most recommended turntables.
Besides being the winner of The Absolute Sound 2017 Golden Ear, it is featured in TAS as 2018 Editors’ Choice. Robert E. Greene wrote: “This turntable, which shares the historic name and appearance of the long-running SL-1200 series but is in fact a new design, offers performance at the very highest level. Its silence and speed stability are competitive with any turntable available and are far superior to most, even very high priced ones. The turntable’s sound is rock-solid, very pure, highly resolved, and quite lively in the positive sense.”
In addition, the legendary Abbey Road Studios has a resident Technics SL-1200G and it is strongly supported by the famous mastering engineering George Pesche. Read this super-interesting story here.
