Hifi-Tuning from Germany (Berlin) stands for development, production and distribution of hifi & high end components. Owner Bernd Ahne states that you don’t have to spend at lot of money to get the ‘top of the line’ high end sound. He says he has no special talents, he’s only passionately curious. Tune your system Bernd has a few insights… In principle there is no perfect equipment of a kind even if it is really expensive to buy! Sad to say, the manufacturers are no different from anybody else. It could be that the developer creates very good circuits, but changes are made by the end – controllers to save on cost from parts as: Resistors, Capacitors, or Operational – Amplifier – IC’s. For example: est. 90% used IC’s in the Hifi – Equipment cost around $ 0,80 a piece, but the Highest – Quality IC’s cost est. $ 60.00 a piece or more! It is interesting to know that the complete build OP – Amp’s has an intensification where the sensitive music signal has to squeeze through and that music – information is also taken away from the capacitors even if it is a type that doesn’t lose much! There are 50 pieces or more in a chain link per one channel, if each piece is holding back a part of the signal the result is a lesser range of sound and less musical resonance performance. A chain is only as good as its weakest part Less quality is the end of it! For example: est. 90% used IC’s in the Hifi – Equipment cost around $ 0,80 a piece, but the Highest – Quality IC’s cost est. $ 60.00 a piece or more! About Bernd Ahne In professional circles, he is regarded the world over as the guru of “good sound”, which in this case has nothing to do with etiquette, but is to be taken quite literally. An unusual man with an unusual, unique career: Bernd Ahne, born in 1962 in the Moabit Hospital, has turned the sound world upside down and, as experts confirm, he has them stumped and shaking their heads, even suspending the laws of physics. He is regarded as “Superman” by the Chinese, he operates in the highest business circles in Hong Kong and Shanghai. Even in the United States, he is a household word, that even NASA was interested in his work and wrote him a letter. And the Russians, the Greeks, the HiFi freaks in Israel – a Berliner conquered the world. Take a look at the website of Hifi-Tuning.
