A number of not so eagle eyed (well, they were there in the middle of the floor) spotted that we were resting our speaker cable on small black bags. We were making no comment about them, but a few curious visitors asked what they were for, and did they do anything? So, having explained that they were not there for decoration, we invited the curious to have a listen, to see if they could hear the difference they made. The reactions were mainly those of astonishment, how? we were asked could supporting speaker cable make such a big difference. PEEK, was our inscrutable reply.
As an example, here is the reaction of Mike, a tech blogger who heard the demonstration: click here Infinite Loop
We expect that these new isolators will be available shortly, and be priced at less than £20 each.

The system passed it’s ultimate test, we found it hard to switch it off at the end of the show.
Three great days that ‘busted’ the myth once and for all, ‘it’s the room what done it’. Even up to 3 or 4 years ago we thought that the room was a major influence on the sound that a system produced, and definitely a limiting factor on the size of system you could successfully use in a smaller room. This, with the exception of easily identifiable unusually designed rooms, is definitely not the case.
We had the advantage of superb components, a system provided by The AudioWorks, but this in itself is a double edged sword – superb components generate energy, and uncontrolled energy is the ‘room problem’.
The response to the music we were reproducing in a small hotel bedroom was widely praised. Of course a common reaction was, ‘those are great speakers’ (which of course the Tannoy Kensingtons are) but we had the opportunity to demonstrate that everything, including a set of isolation cones, was playing its part.
The system was:
Accuphase DP-550 CD /SACD player
Accuphase E-600 Integrated Class A amplifier
Tannoy Kensington GR loudspeakers
Audiomica Geminedes Loudspeaker cable
Audiomica Pearl Consequence interconnect
MusicWorke ReFlex Ultra mains block
MusicWorks ReVive power cables
MusicWorks ReVo & P-Cones
The Bristol Show, Feb 20th to 22nd
MusicWorks products together with Audiomica Cables will be joined by the latest electronic components from Accuphase, promising a ‘hotel room of earthly delights’. Join us in room 313. We will be partnering with some very special loudspeakers which we will announce very soon.
So if you want to hear some of the best audio equipment in the world (note, definitely not the most expensive) being nurtured by the best ancilliaries, don’t miss this important event.

The MusicWorks P-Cone brings some of the latest materials technology to bear on audio (and A/V) system isolation. P-Cone is an incredibly cost effective isolator made from an advanced thermoplastic named PEEKTM . This advanced engineering material has recently found applications throughout the MusicWorks product range. The P-Cone has been designed to help optimise system performance irrespective of the shelf used to support your equipment.
Available in packs of 3 or 4, and in two sizes. Simply place your chosen component (source components and preamps are the most sensitive) on top of 3 or 4 strategically positioned cones.
P-Cone 10 – 20mm diameter x 10mm high £14 each
P-Cone 25 – 25mm diameter x 25mm high £30 each
The new ReVo Mini has ultra modern aesthetic, which is derived from the requirement to extract the maximum performance from
smaller component systems. Based on the state of the art ReVo table, we have managed to engineer a vastly cost reduced version that keeps a large part of the performance of the full ReVo.
Designed to accommodate half and three quarter width equipment, the ReVo Mini is a fully modular system that allows the user to purchase exactly what they need, then add to the table at a later date.
ReVo Mini base module: 2 Tier equipment table £199
ReVo Mini extension module: add on isolation module £99
Clear acrylic front / back panels, with black shelves. Black acrylic with black shelves, and white acrylic with white shelves are available for a 10% premium.
The 100th edition of Hi Fi Plus magazine, on news stands now, includes a section featuring contributor’s most influential products of the last 10 years. The ReVo table is selected by one reviewer as one of his two pioneering products of the decade!
How could we disagree with such fine judgement?
We will be attending the Audio World ’13 show at the Radisson Hotel, Manchester Airport T2 on 23rd & 24th March. We will be exhibiting with The AudioWorks and Albarry Music. Some exciting new MusicWorks products will be on display / demonstration which will feature the use of PEEK* in acoustic isolation.
PEEK is an advanced engineering plastic developed by the Victrex corporation. It has very high tensile strength, but also, we have discovered, offers remarkable acoustic / vibration handling properties.
We are pleeased to announce the latest version of the award winning ReVo table. We have been investigating the acoustic properties of an advanced engineering plastic called PEEK. This material fulfills our requirement for high tensile strength, with superb noise reduction properties.
We now offer the ReVo tables with PEEK fixing options that make the acoustic isolation properties of the ReVo supports much more profound. Although this inevitably means that the price of our best isolation solution is higher than before, it also means that more cost effective performance than ever is now available. The £1,050 ReVo 3 Lite P offers a higher performance than the previous ReVo 3, for £250 less!
For customers with existing ReVo tables, an upgrade pack of 12 PEEK machine screws is available for £300 (ReVo 3 and ReVo Lite), and £200 (ReVo 2)
It has taken us a long time to come up with an entry level power cable that we would be happy to put our name to, but at long last we are pleased to announce the ReEntry. The cable features a double screened cable made to our specification, a carefully chosen UK mains plug, and the same IEC plug found on our ReVive ‘Lite’.
The ReEntry is priced at £125. Ask your dealer for a demonstration.
