DUELUND CAST-PIO-Cu (Copper) 630VDC (for Tube Electronics) Coupling Capacitors - Now 13 Values! not included in sale

In an effort to ensure we have the very best prices on these superb caps (630VDC CAST-PIO-Cu), pcX has decided to "sharpen our pencils" and reduce our PROMO prices from between $5 and $10 per cap, on 5 values. 0.047uf & 0.10uf drop to $184.95 ea. (from $189.95 ea.) and the 0.22uf, 0.33uf and 0.47uf drop to $189.95 ea. (from $199.95 ea.). We will keep these prices at this level, as long as we can….but inevitably, they will go up (it is only a short-term reduction)…so, we recommend that any interested audiophile take advantage of these savings, while they can.

CONNEX Magnetic Levitation "Audio Vibration" Isolation Damper - In Stock !!chek markconn lev feet

Design Concept: The magnetic levitation damper is not a innovative concept….it has been applied in many industrial applications: from precision semiconductor equipment to high speed trains. This magnetic levitation damper was carefully designed to transmit external vibrations onto the floating magnetic field (effectively), especially for very subtle vibrations – an important goal in audio application. This damper can not only absorb vertical vibration, it's also effectiveness for isolating horizontal vibration.

Vertical Vibration: This is the dominant vibration faced by audio gear. This isolation damper transfers vertical vibration onto the floating magnetic field. These devices have a carefully fine tuned magnetic suspension mechanism, which is sensitive to minute vibrations.

Horizontal Vibration: The magnetic suspension mechanism of this damper allows for a 5 degree freedom of off-axial movement of the internal magnetic piston. Thus, it can absorb horizontal vibration too.

Shielded Design: Offers shielding from the magnetic suspension mechanism. This vibration damper was designed for 0.3kg to 2kg loading on each damper.

Dimension: 15mm D of top support; 40mm D of bottom round base; 30mm assembled height.

CONNEX Vibration Isolation Damper Feet - Have Arrived !!chek markconn vib feet

Design Concept: TAudio components encounter two types of vibration: vertical and horizontal.

Vertical Vibration: This is the dominant vibration from audio gear. This isolation damper transfers vertical vibration energy into the rotation of a ball bearing. While not a unique innovation (as it has been used in vibration damping for many expensive precision equipments long yeas ago) we are now introducing into the audio market.

Horizontal Vibration: These dampers use a rubber O-Ring to absorb horizontal vibration.

Dimension: 16mm D for the top round support: 35mm D for the bottom round base; 25mm H for the assembled damper.

BURSON AUDIO HA-160DS Headphone Amp & DAC not included in saleha-160ds

Compared to the HA-160D, the HA-160DS is 16% smaller in footprint and 35% lighter in weight. And with fewer features,
it is more affordable. But it is in no way an inferior or focused product. It is simply a focused 2 in 1 machine that has all the performance and refinements expected from Burson Audio. Its DAC is identical to that inside the HA-160D right down to
each component used. The headphone is also identical to the HA-160 which we have been refining since 2009. We have
also reduced the number of headphone outputs to one and used the best volume potentiometer we could find to ease
control while preserving sonic quality. It is housed in a smaller but precision folded 4 mm aluminium casing that is
elegant on any desk and works as a singular heat-sink for the entire machine. This case really puts the conventional
1 mm folded steel case to shame.

BURSON AUDIO
  "shunt" Super (old style) Regulators - 50% Off Special
 not included in saleBURSON REG

Burson Super Regulators are a direct replacement for some of the most commonly used regulators in the market, based on
the same technology from Burson Power Supply designs. Not only does the Super Regulator provide the basic function of a
standard regulator (with a much lower noise level) it also incorporates a noise filtration network that will screen out a wide
bandwidth of unwanted noise from upstream. This will leave the output power stable and noise free. When clean power is
supplied to the rest of the circuit, your equipment performs to it`s full potential.

pcX is now please to have these "shunt" type regulators in stock. For more info on these regulators, click here:

NOTE: Shunt type are technically superior to series type regulators - however, they are usually larger, with lower current capability.

pcx services


Part Matching:

pcX offers matching services for passive parts - caps, resistors and inductors - $1 per pair (relative match)...or $2 per pair if you want them matched to a nominal value AND to each other (relatively).

Tube Matching:

pcX can match any small signal tube into pairs....$5 USD / pr.; $10 USD four dual triode tubes (if you want a matched pair that have matched triode sections as well).   Our stock power tubes are almost always sold/priced as pairs already...however, if you send us your power tube stock, we can test and match them for you, for $5 USD / pr. (for both Ip - plate current; and Gm - transconductance).

Tinning:

pcX has a solder pot available.  Any wire which needs tinning due to its litz (enamelled strands - like Cardas) design, the cost is $0.50 USD per end. 

Cable Termination (or, re-termination):

pcX has always offered cable termination services - for both interconnect ($60 USD / pr.); speaker cable ($60 USD / pr.); digital interconnect ($30); and AC power cables ($30 USD).  These prices are for standard terminations. 

Bi-Wired speaker cable configurations are usually 50% more; and cables with difficult sheathing, or large number of conductors, will be more - pricing for these will be on a quote basis only.


As well, we can re-terminate existing cable, if you'd like to upgrade connectors, change lengths; make multiple cables out of longer runs; or change connector style (XLR to RCA and vice versa).

Turnaround time is usually 24 to 48 hours after the terminated cable order is placed, or receipt of your cable.

  • CERAMIC & BAKELITE Tube Sockets: Given the success we have had with our ultra-premium machined Teflon sockets (with machined gold-plated "high copper content" phosphor bronze pins), pcX has decided to stock the "sister" sockets to these...they are identical is size, shape and form to the Teflon, but now use a premium Ceramic (high temperature glazed white porcelain) or Bakelite (in Black or Brown) body, at considerably lower prices. The Ceramic will be available in 4, 7, 8 & 9-pin chassis mount types, whereas the Bakelite will be available in 4, 8 & 9 pin chassis mount types only. Expect these to be listed on our site next week (Dec. 10th). See Them Here

  • SANYO OS-CON Electrolytic Capacitors: pcX has decided to re-stock these "wonderful" electrolytic capacitors, with a unique "Organic Semiconductor CONductive Polymer" design…giving these caps the lowest "best in class" ESL & ESR specifications. We are stocking the SP audio-grade range, which feature tinned copper OFC leads (non-magnetic). Now, we will have ten values in stock (up from just two). More values will be added over time, as NOS stocks are located. See Them Here

  • TEFLON Tubing (Clear): Due to customer demand, pcX has decided to expand our overwhelmingly popular Teflon Tubing line-up (for those who enjoy making their interconnect and speaker cables from the ground up). We have added 6 new sizes to our already comprehensive offerings, and they include: 26 awg; 19 awg; 17 awg; 15 awg; 13 awg and 2 awg. See Them Here

  • DUELUND CAST-PIO CU 630VDC Update: Due to the popularity of this series, pcX has decided to expand the stocked range to include 3.3uf, 4.7uf and 10uf. Inventory for these new values is expected to arrive mid-January, 2013. If interested, please E-Mail Chris

  • PRP After repeated requests from customers, pcX has expanded the "stocked" PRP range of metal film resistors - from E-12 to E-24 resistor values, for both the 1/4 and 1/2 watt ranges - that adds about 64 additional parts per wattage. See Them Here

  • UPS Express Shipping (to the US): After successful negotiations with our main courier vendor, pcX has been able to secure "extremely" preferential rates to the US, for UPS's "overnight" UPS Express PAK service..which holds 1.5 kg's (or 3.3 lbs.). Anywhere in the US, for a flat rate of $18 ! (almost 1/2 of the previous cost). This is now the dominant method for shipping to the US (given that Ground is only $1 to $2 cheaper). Also, remember there is no duty or brokerage charges when shipping via UPS Express.
