PS-HX500 turntable and DSD recorder


“The reduced appearance signalises precision and a high level of clarity, making it a visual reflection of the fundamental technical requirements of a DSD recorder.” - Martin Topel 

PS VR Virtual Reality System

“The overall balance of black and white is appealing, while the confident use of thermoplastic materials is masterful. All of this comes at a price that is very affordable for the technology. This product brings VR to the masses.” - Claus Jepsen, Brian Stephens and Jens Korte.
