  • Same old story – a whole new performance…the C10 Digital to Analog Converter In many ways, the guiding principles that underpin the C10’s design are firmly rooted in the existing 1 Series. But the revised topology, the novel DSQ™ Phase Array DAC architecture, and the incredibly sophisticated grounding and power supply arrangements deliver a whole new level of upgradable, configurable, musical performance. The 16 software-driven R2R DACs at the heart of the C10 mean that it is both updatable and future-proof: as future-proof as the C1.2 – still at the top of its game after 15 years. The C10 establishes a completely new standard for musical performance, practicality, and versatility. It promises its owners a relationship that’s as long as it is musically rewarding. The C10 relies on the proven performance of the PCM 1704 R2R DAC chip, driven by our sophisticated DSP-based, short-tailed PEtER over-sampling algorithm. The DSP operates at a 32-bit fixed point before conversion to 24-bit at the output, the native resolution of the PCM 1704. The C10 uses 16 DACs in a dual differential, sequential DSQ™ Phase Array topology. The C10 power supply provides four independent, highly regulated multiple DC feeds to galvanically isolated circuit blocks within the chassis: the digital processing circuitry, the clock, and the left and right DACs. The audio chassis has adopted a mirror imaged layout, the modular input cards located centrally with the DACs disposed on either side and benefiting from symmetrical clock feeds. This pure DAC is dedicated to delivering the best possible performance from digital storage media. Best performance demands pairing it with a top-flight line-stage pre-amplifier, like the L10. To optimize system matching, it offers user-selectable output levels (1, 2.5, or 5V) and switchable local/global feedback. Inputs are still modular and configurable. The C10 is fitted with CH-Digital-IN HD and Ethernet Control cards as standard, providing connection to CH-LINK HD, AES/EBU (XLR), S/PDIF (RCA), and TosLink optical inputs and also allowing network control via the CH-Control App. The Ethernet Control card can be upgraded to the Ethernet-In HD card, creating a high-quality streaming interface (compatible with all major streaming services). Three additional slots allow users to fit an extra digital input card, a USB input, and the Clock Sync card for connection to an external 10MHz master clock, such as the CH T10 Time reference. The C10 Mono To move from the C10 to the C10 Mono, you simply add an extra power supply. The separation of the circuit blocks within the C10 audio chassis, combined with the four discrete DC feeds from the power supply means that we can surpass the benefits of the six-box topology by adding a single extra power supply chassis, splitting the DC feeds between them. Same significant step up in performance – half the boxes to accommodate. C10 Digital to Analog Converter: Processing:
    • Four independent 2.4GFLOPS DSP engines.

  • The NEW 2024 Magico S5 A true powerhouse! It would not be an embellishment to say that Magico’s new S Series offers the company’s most cutting-edge advancements in loudspeaker design to date. The S3 harkened to a new era, and now the S5 adds a gravitas that can’t be ignored. High technology meets a muscular new form factor. The mighty Magico S5 is now a reality. Sculpted enclosure The newly designed curved-and-shaped aluminum cabinet—is optimized using simulated 3D modeling to minimize internal resonances—maximizes stiffness while enabling optimal damping strategies. The front baffle is curved for minimal diffraction effects. Notably, the S5’s internal volume increased by 31% compared to the previous version. The larger bass cabinet enables the S5’s low-frequency response to plumb 5Hz lower—to 20Hz—while keeping the same sensitivity (88dB). Innovative driver technology A key change from previous Magico cones is the aluminum-honeycomb core sandwiched by graphene-reinforced carbon-fiber skins. The Nano-Tec v.8 cone’s revolutionary core structure —possible only with recently developed manufacturing techniques—allows lower thickness,  lighter weight, and more effective damping. The result has pushed distortion lower than ever before. In addition to vastly improved cone construction, Magico has invested three years in a new generation of driver chassis. This third-generation chassis structure improves mechanical and acoustical parameters, like much-improved force distribution, better suspension designs, and a dual-post configuration that equalizes dynamic tensile wire forces. The new chassis combines stiffness and damping while allowing minimal acoustic contribution by reducing modes and maximizing airflow. All-star driver lineup The S5’s midrange is 6” in diameter with a 3” voice coil. It employs the Magico Nano-Tec v.8 cone and is built into a third-generation chassis. This driver features two extra-large neodymium magnets, a full copper cap, and a pure titanium voice coil. The S5’s midrange sets a new benchmark for measured performance in frequency and time domains. The result is midrange clarity that will leave you speechless. The bass in the S5 is provided by a pair of 10” woofers. Each driver sports a 5” titanium voice coil and a Nano-Tec v.8 cone built into a third-generation chassis. This woofer has a colossal copper cap capable of one-half inch of linear movement with the lowest distortion available in a driver of its size. This enables the S5 to provide accurate, undistorted low frequencies while producing high maximum sound pressure levels. The S5 produces low frequencies with awe-inspiring power and depth while maintaining fidelity to the source not heard outside a Magico loudspeaker. The S5’s tweeter is based on the model used in the M Series. The S5’s 28mm tweeter uses a diamond-coated beryllium diaphragm. A neodymium-based motor system yields the lowest distortion possible today and has even greater power handling than previous S Series speakers. Careful FEA modeling allowed Magico to improve the mechanical and acoustical performance of the back chamber. The S5’s high frequencies are chock-full of textural detail and the sonic subtleties Magico is renowned for. Accouterments: The S5 is available in a generous selection of premium finishes: six Softec choices that are rich in color depth, smooth to the touch, and very durable; and six High Gloss finishes that are expertly polished to a lustrous shine with a clear top coat. The three-footer supports the system using constrained-layer damping and premium materials for greatly enhanced sonic performance. S5 orders placed in the 2024 calendar year will include a special accessory box celebrating. Magico’s 20th anniversary. This memento was designed and crafted specifically to accompany the S5, shaped with the curvature of the S5’s cabinet. Each custom machined- the aluminum accessory box is engraved with your S5s' serial numbers and the Magico "20" anniversary logo.

  • At the core of Döhmann Audio’s philosophy is the study of resonance energy in analog playback systems. In 2020, our R&D Lab acquired a new piece of test equipment that enabled us to measure resonance propagation and behaviour with a significantly higher accuracy and resolution than ever before. The period of research that followed resulted in some discoveries and insights that led to the development of the Mk3 technologies. The Mk3 Record Clamp is the result of extensive research, data analysis and resonance profile modelling. It represents a significant step forward in analog system design, incorporating new technologies that have never been used in audio applications before. It is difficult to imagine the difference a record clamp can make to the sonic presentation and performance of a turntable, however, the proof is in the listening. Without being aware of it, most of our sound quality reference moments have been experienced in the presence of record & spindle resonances. Remove them, and the paradigm shifts again. The Mk3 Record Clamp has been designed with three principles in mind:

    1st Principle – Record Resonance

    We have been aware that vibrations are present in the vinyl medium itself, both originating externally from sound waves in the air and from the mechanical systems in the record player. They also originate ‘internally’ from the interaction between the stylus and the record grooves. However, utilising the latest technology, we were able to not only measure this resonance, but also observe how it travels within the vinyl medium. This led to a critical thought process on how to attenuate these “self-chatter” resonances using a properly executed clamp design. To address the challenge of record-originating resonances, the new Dohmann Audio Mk3 Record Clamp has the following features:
    • Large mating (damping) contact surface area for the new clamp design to work as opposed to using high force contact points like a spike or ball bearing.
    • Metallurgy was specifically chosen for transmission purposes with internal chambers used for the critical damping materials. One material cannot provide the broad frequency spectrum needed – it needs to be a carefully selected group of materials.
    • Compact design to lower the profile and impact on bearing precession.

    2nd Principle – Spindle Resonance

    We measured resonances through the spindle (stem) which originate in the bearing. These frequencies need to be addressed by different tuned materials and the upper section of the clamp has its own purpose-designed chambers to allow addition of specialised polymers.

    3rd Principle – Isolation of the Record from the Spindle Resonance

    We realised that mitigating spindle resonance helped, but in order to achieve the best sonic results, we had to keep those resonances completely away from the record. To achieve this, a third constrained layer ring system is used to separate the upper and lower chambers which under clamping pressure creates a dissipation plate (Finite Element Method) that is shaped carefully to provide an optimum boundary interface. The cumulative outcome from addressing these challenges is a discernible improvement in clarity, resolution, focus, dynamic contrasts and tonality within the sonic presentation of a turntable. Although this record clamp was designed as part of the Döhmann Audio Mk3 project, it has been consistently demonstrated that this product will improve the sound quality of any turntable that it is used in conjunction with. This clamp design is a result of close collaboration within the team working at Döhmann Audio and our tight relationships with engineering and materials science leaders in our university and defence/industrial sectors. Without advanced knowledge of new materials and customisation capabilities, such breakthroughs would not be possible. We hope that the new Mk3 record clamp assists you to enjoy your vinyl music collection with greater emotional connection – The Döhmann Audio Team.

No matter what high-end audio system you currently have, experience the sNH-10G to prove what the ultimate sound should be in your network system.
  • What a table! Do not let the unique design fool you. In its simplest form, the Stabi S is a HIFI jewel and has extreme value for the dollar, especially when used with Kuzma tonearms and cartridges. It is constructed with very rigid brass tubing that when joined together forms the shape of a “T”, and comes in natural brass or a black powder coat. This high-mass brass tubing is perfect for a rigid connection to the platter, bearing assembly, and tonearm support. The belt drive motor sits outside the tube and an optional dongle connects it to the controller to set and adjust 33 and 45 RPM speeds. Albums will rest on a solid aluminum platter.  Additional options allow the cross brass tube to support a second arm, which is how we like to set it up. Spindle-to-pivot adjustment for the tonearm is easily adjustable using an eccentric collar that also allows VTA adjustment with a set screw.   Further performance is gained using the Kuzma Platis platform.
  • The Magico M7 is a four-way, six-driver floor-standing loudspeaker capable of astonishing performance. Featuring the latest Magico drive-unit technology, an organically shaped carbon- fiber-and-aluminum enclosure, and the latest Elliptical Symmetry Crossover, the M7 is a tour de force of advanced loudspeaker engineering.

    Tweeter and Midrange: 

    The M7 uses the tweeter designed for the M9. This high-frequency 28mm driver utilizes a beryllium diaphragm with optimized geometry. The diaphragm is then diamond-coated using a chemical vapor deposition process to push the beryllium substrate closer to the theoretical ideal. Magico engineers created a new neodymium-based motor system with the lowest distortion possible, massive dynamic capability, and even greater power handling than previous designs. Lastly, the acoustical performance of the back chamber was improved with careful FEA modeling. The 5” pure midrange driver in the M7 features a Gen 8 Nano-Tec cone formed of an aluminum-honeycomb core sandwiched with outer and inner layers of graphene-infused carbon fiber.  

    Midbass and Bass:

    The M7’s 9” midbass driver uses a newly designed basket assembly and Magico’s Gen 8 Nano-Tec cone, consisting of an aluminum-honeycomb core sandwiched with outer and inner layers of graphene-infused carbon fiber. This drive unit has a 127mm voice coil and an underhung neodymium-based motor system using dual extra-large magnets.  

    A Silent Enclosure:

    The M7’s enclosure begins with a monocoque carbon-fiber shell conceived using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) modeling. A multiply 6061-T6 aluminum front baffle with constrained-layer damping using aerospace composites is affixed to an aluminum rear baffle with front-to-back tensioning rods. The result is a cabinet that produces negligible internal resonances, enabling minimal damping—again, a design optimized conceptually and then tested until perfected. The baffle shape was refined until almost no diffraction effects were measurable. The M7’s overall structure results in maximum strength on every axis, with extreme stiffness, rigidity, and minimal energy storage.   

    The Crossover: 

    The four-way network contains components from Mundorf of Germany and Duelund Coherent Audio of Denmark. The M7’s ESXO crossover perfectly integrates the six drive units into a virtual point source—the six drivers sound complete. A bespoke support system developed specifically for the M7 uses MPOD technology to provide a stable footprint while eliminating noise and achieving perfect coupling to the floor.
