    the company that stole the audio note brand in broad daylight from what is now known as Kondo japan ... would like to introduce a sound card with their Rubycon sourced ultra special caps and extra nice audio note branded resistors all over it. it also has RGB lights so get in line.

    "Audio Note (UK), Ltd. has been in the high-end audio business for over 30 years, making a name for itself..."

    LOL VERGA LOL
    Just for the record, Mr Kondo did not agree with such statement:

    Thief's shameless response:

    Audio Note UK is even worse than LH Labs, the latter steals designs and doesn't deliver products, but the former steals the whole name of a company, and not only steals the designs but also fucks them by using worse parts and sells them at even more expensive prices (which is no joke, Kondo stuff is really expensive).

    "Audio Note (UK), Ltd." can go fuck themselves with a chinese replica 211 tube.

    The guy was the distributor for audio note in UK but through some legal maneuvering stole the rights to the name everywhere except in japan and this wasn't just any name, audio note was already legendary. this was a theft in the order of millions of dollars. it is so shameless for him to say that he worked alongside Kondo san when the reality is that kondo san had original designs of his own for years, known for pursuit of absolute perfection and his legendary all silver transformers and this guy was nobody. but turns out if you spend some advertising dollars the audio press can be very forgiving. just like the time that it came out that the 5000 USD Goldmund DVD player was a 30 dollar pioneer optic in a big box. somehow stereophile didnt see much to cover there lol.
