Tomasz's workshop in Poland is up and running. He's making cables to send directly to individual customers in the EU (free from post Brexit VAT / Customs fees) and making cables in bulk to stock our UK workshop. He's also doing upgrades and repairs for EU customers. If you're looking for an upgrade, contact mail@hfsaudio.co.uk to find out what's possible.

Tomasz will back in the UK to coincide with the delivery of our new amplifier boards. We also hope to have the cases for our new integrated amplifier, around that same time.

Delivery time on parts for upgrades is currently around 10-14 days to our EU workshop and around 21-28 days to our UK workshop.

With another 7 days self-isolation to go, I bagged a secondhand (current spec) Schiit Gumby DAC to try out. Kudos to the seller - I paid for it yesterday lunchtime and it landed with me less than 24 hours later, perfectly packed and in spot on condition.

If I like it, Tomasz will get to take the RME back to Poland, between shows - I know he rates it highly (we bought it for the DSP facility, in case we need to balance out the room at a show).

What with losing most of my sense of smell and taste, and with nobody allowed in, it's a great opportunity to be a slob for a while. Tonight, I shall be eating used underpants and discarding sardine paste all over the house. Or, maybe,the other way around. Scooby has given me a few funny looks, though.

The only thing I could taste properly when I had Covid was Whiskey

Lots of Whiskey.

Tomasz returns to the UK on 22nd November.

If you have previously spoken to us about a repair or upgrade, get your item(s) to us to coincide with Tom's arrival.

If you're thinking about an upgrade, we have a small stock of transformers and capacitors set aside for power amp upgrades. First come, first served. Contact me for prices.

Our very popular preamp upgrade is also available for fitting while Tomas is here. There is a 7 day lead time for parts - so we will need to receive your order by 19th November.
