the home of audio pro in New Zealand - sachem hi-end electronics - live recordings of classical music
Dear Audiophile, welcome to our website! We have tried to build a rather different kind of web site, more instructive and informative than commercial and we hope you will appreciate our efforts. We also hope it will help you spend money with wisdom and eventually solve, in the correct and comprehensive way, the very fundamental hi-fi issues that you will never read of in any magazine and never be told about in a hi-end store. We take the reproduction of sound very seriously, so try to find the time to navigate through the different pages and you will become acquainted with quite surprising but all-too-often unheard of topics: thanks and ... enjoy!
Our company Viganoni & Viganoni is New Zealand's official, exclusive importer and distributor of the Swedish audio pro brand and its products: wireless and passive loudspeakers, sub-woofers and electronics. To know more about this historical brand, please visit the "audio pro" page in this web site and the NZ web site www.audiopronz.com
We also are the proud designers and manufacturers of the Sachem top-end audio equipment, and also proud that such unique and distinctive electronics have made in New Zealand engraved on their back. Please visit the "testimonials" page and, from the euphoria that shines through from the comments of our Customers, you will have quite an accurate idea of the Sachem's performances and sonic qualities! These Audiophiles are experienced music lovers, who have owned and also evaluated many hi-end preamps and amps, before choosing Sachem. Among these testimonials, you'll read those of Ashley Kramer and Martin Bell, who, as hi-fi magazine reviewers, have had occasion to audition and test the best audio equipment available on the NZ market and ... have bought Sachem for themselves. In order to understand the Sachem's "philosophy", and their unusual, but very useful facilities (made to allow you to achieve a perfect setup and tuning of the whole system), please visit the pages dedicated to them. These pages are also interesting to learn more about problems related to preamps, power amps and hi-fi in general: you'll never find a discussion about these topics in any hi-fi magazines!
An additional, but not secondary, activity of Viganoni & Viganoni is to make state-of-the-art digital recordings of classical music and in particular of live concerts. In this connection, please visit the instructive page "live recording".
You will also find a page devoted to the "USB audio DACs", one to the "sachem guitar" (if you are a guitar player, don't miss it), and if you want to learn things which are essential to dramatically improve the sound of your system and who you have to commission for doing that in a professional way, you must read at first the "school of sound" page and then "the hi-end doctor".
In the page "live music vs. hi-fi", you will find very “politically incorrect”, but watertight, arguments and considerations on the hi-end market, and the best practical method to avoid making big and expensive mistakes, when you have to buy some stuff: don't neglect to read this page!
To finish, take also the time to read the “testimonials” that are useful to understand more about us and our products!
Please consider us at your service, so, if you have any doubts, queries, angry remonstrances, or just curiosities, don't hesitate to contact us by email or phone: it will be a pleasure speaking with you!
