While their heart is undoubtedly in reproducing analogue audio, where the signal may begin with their own hand made moving coil cartridges, they do not fear digital audio by any means and make fine DACs and CD players including state of the art examples at well over £300,000. £1,000,000 audio systems may be readily assembled with a choice selection of top AN components. Nevertheless several designs are quite competitively priced eg a TT1 turntable with Audio Note moving magnet cartridge, and a ‘Zero’ all valve integrated amplifier. In fact for about £5,000 you can buy an Audio Note audio system, a large pair of speakers, valve amplification and a valve equipped CD player.
And until the end of 2013 there was also a healthy kit operation. While kits have finished, Audio Note also do good business with their custom audiophile parts which are used by enthusiast constructors and some other manufacturers in addition to their own production lines. While the famous Rubycon Black Gate used by Audio Note capacitors have ceased production (beware of fakes which now widely available) Audio Note are working with Rubycon creating new advanced capacitors, and I noted two types of new electrolytic capacitor of same value, size and voltage but one was much heavier, this a very low ESR type with much lower impedance and a higher material density inside.
