Guru Junior


A couple of years ago, I took a chance on a relatively unknown (at least in the USA) speaker company out of Sweden. I lacked a speaker that could be tucked away in a bookcase or nestled up to the back wall. Normal people don’t like to place behemoth speakers eight feet into a room. I had read about Guru in the European audio rags for a few years and decided to try some. My first client came from Florida and after buying a pair, he called back and ordered two more pairs to place throughout his home. That’s when I knew something big (besides bass) was coming from these odd looking Guru QM10-2 speakers. Designed initially as recording studio monitors, the QM10-2 quickly became popular in Europe and has been paired exceedingly well with all of the usual suspects (check out my product lines). They just made sense. Now they have audio reviewers falling over themselves with their newest and smallest offering, Junior. I just so happen to have the ONLY pre production pair in North America. I’ve already pre sold several pair and am now waiting for the initial order to arrive later this month. Looking for a teeny tiny speaker that does 34Hz up to 30kHz? (most speakers claim about 40Hz-20kHz) You won’t find any… unless you come demo the Jr.

$1250. Available in White, Black and Walnut.

What H-Fi has given them 5 stars and a nice REVIEW
AV Forums think they’re AWESOME
The Absolute Sound LOVE THEM


I’m feeling somewhat damaged today after DJing a party (with a Rega RP3, Brio-R and RS3 speakers). Ghetto Boy’s Bushwick Bill stopped by..with his good friend Yoda!

Dynavector and the Harbeth 30.1


Well, this is fun! After playing with tubes for awhile, we thought some solid state was in order. “Let’s throw the DV gear on the 30.1’s”. “good idea, that’ll slap ’em around a bit”. So we set up the Naim Serve feeding the Line Magnetic 502CA DAC into the Dynavector L200 pre amp and the 170 watt HX100 amp. Auditorium 23 cables throughout.

Here’s my review. “HOLY S#*T!”

Known mainly for their excellent phono cartridges, not much has been written about Dynavector electronics. There are two Dynavector factories. DV Japan makes cartridges and high quality model airplanes. DV New Zealand moved to Australia a few years ago and that’s where the infamous P-75 phono pre amp is birthed. The Te Kaitora Rua cartridge is a collaboration between the two.
