What HFL Thinks

Heed Abacus – We have always loved Heed at HiFi Lounge as they do things a little differently from the norm, using amplifier technology that is more often found in valve amps even though all their amps are solid state it gives their amps an unmistakable character of a very organic, natural and musical sound as well as offering CD players, DAC’s, Phono Stages and headphone amps all with that very lifelike sound, if this sounds like something for you please feel free to get in touch to give Heed a Listen at HFL.

The abacus is one of the most recognized calculating tools of humankind. It has been used for thousands of years, for its simplicity, and for its general acceptance that connects people of various cultures and beliefs. Our Abacus digital to analogue converter is an exquisite tool for the task, connecting you to the world of the musician, doing the precise calculations needed for the mutual understanding. Being a gateway between the digital and analogue worlds, the Abacus is not only a computing machine, it is the very source of the analogue sound amplified through your system. This sound needs to be fascinating right from the beginning, isn’t it?
