The fact – and sense - that most every recording contains music once created

actually in something we call live is all too often missing when we play back that



When we introduced the aiwon in early winter 2014 we were amazed by its subtle detail, by its ability to recreate tiny, tantalizing details – minor details which so immensely support the emotional impact and the sense of reality in a sonic picture.


Over the next 18 months we experimented with a few samples of the aiwontrying to further fine tune for even more impact in performance.

But it was not before we made subtle changes in some key inherent design

parameters that we entered new ground.


This was the birth of the design which then evolved in the spring of 2016 into the palladian.


The palladian features a hand hammered Timet 1100 Titanium body of

unequalled strength and with an unparalleled ability to transfer energy.

In the palladian we find a strong heart with more energy (coil windings), a body more agile with less inertia (reduced moving mass), featuring further a very special, subtle mix of small measures taken to fine tune each and every parameter of performance allowing for a sonic explosion beyond our expectations and hopes.


The hand hammered body, the quicksilverish shine like a dragon’s skin - The

palladian Timet 1100 body expresses visually its agility, vital dynamic and live-



The palladian brings that spark of live back into the sonic presentation of each

and every recording.

That spark of live – independent whether large or small – that was there when the

The palladian is fast, live-like dynamic and breathtaking direct in its color,

immediateness and agility.

An incredible agile, dynamic dancer – a reminiscent of Misha Baryshnikov in his


It is subtle, tender and sublime – yet frightening dynamic, with a sonic punch both

wall-shaking and stunning physical in its impact.


The palladian is.. live ….. in the very best sense and in the true spirit of the



And with the palladian the true spirit of the music is there.


Our statement in phono cartridges ….. our best.
