Our 30th year, Thank you

Audio Note

Our AN brand. audionote.jpg

Where do we start folks, well lets start with the sources 1st and foremost.

Where we began within the AN was with a CD 2x, at the time they cost 5,500.00. We did not do well with this model. We also at that time, did do quite better in terms of sales with the CD 3.1x now sold at 11,500.00. Many were taken aback with the perform,ance of our CD 4.1x, now (22,000.00). We also sold a few of these.

Typical of AN, we took this to an even higher level, from the DAC 2 (7,500.00) thought the DAC 2 signature (a hair under 10,000.00). For quite some time, and perhaps even my possessing one, our DAC 3 XLR (18,500.00) did reasonbly well. We offered a CDT 2 (sold a few) but our most sold CDT was a CDT 3 (22.500.00).

We do have a fully fledge TT2 table on display

AN Turntables are perhaps where AN is competitive with other highend companies. An AN TT2 with arm set up will start you in the 10,000.00 range but I am afraid it gets expensive from there. They sell their own brands of MC phono preamps one adds to your pre-existing AN MM phono. The start from 3,300.00 for a 0 level PH amp to 199,000.00 M9 PH amp.

Where AN is quite interesting is where the amps are concerned. Many will begin to regret not buying used units on on line sales forums. Many owners will now think twice about selling these.

A AN Cobra now runs a cool (8,000.00), a OTO PP now begins at (5,700.00) and a full decked out OTO, phono SE, signature, Silver is cost an astomishing (12,000.00). An Oto SE runs with the Cobra in pricing. The Oto's big brother, begins at over the (8,000.00) and up from there.

Not whats to say about what a great many top reviewers in the call one of the worlds greatest amplifiers. We have historically offered 2 such models on display. Now the Meishu standard edition start at (19,000.00) and goes up to on display top level Meishu at (40,000.00). We know of no dealer anywhere that has both models on display.

Our 300B power amplifiers run the gamut we have everthing on display, starting at a Conquerer entrt level at 10,000.00, a Conqueror Silver at 12,500.00 and with our master Conqueror it will be a Conqueror Silver Signature at 16,500.00, ALL on display in this series.

Now, as we roll out away with the amplifier section, the AN P1 now start at 5,000.00. The P1 goes up from there uo to 9,000.00. The P2's start at 6,600.00 up to 11,000.00. All on display, Again we dont know who has more AN amps than yours truly.

Where AN pre's are concerned, the M1 starts at 4,250.00, the M2 from 7,000.00 to 11,000.00 and the M3 from 15,500.00 to 20,000.00, again all on display.

Lastly AN speakers. We have 3 models on display, These start at 6,500.00 baisc price for a standard AN -Z, 7,500.00 with hemp woofer, and AN-K all start at 7,500.00 for a basic model, an AN-J start at 10,500.00, and a AN -E Lx start at 14,500.00

All speaker models do go up substantially as one increase in model offereings.

Cables. Well we do have a lot, and because of the many models, we will not get into pricing. Suffice it to say, we have a lot of AN cables.

Hope you enjoyed the read folks.

As you may all know (29/12)

We shall be busy reorganizing our Audio Note arm of SPI. We may even transfer a lot more information on our SPI website. This should start happening by late January. More to come later folks.
