Welcome to Airt

Think of us as your personal advisors – enthusiastic experts, passionate about the world of high-end audio, providing you with our objective advice in a complex marketplace.

We believe our mission is to introduce you to the brands and products we work with, and to share with you what it is about them that so excites us.

Everything we do is geared towards delivering a truer musical experience.
Hence our brand line: ‘where music comes first’.

How do we achieve our goal?

Firstly, the faithful communication of sound demands an investment in time and energy if it is to engage fully with the heart as well as the head.

So we set out to explain in words and imagery what impresses us about the performance and the aesthetic quality of the equipment we recommend. Hopefully, you’ll grasp why it has earned our admiration and led us to throw behind it the weight of our formidable experience in the field.

Then we’ll aim to consolidate your initial interest by demonstrating how the system’s specifications translate into music (which is, after all, the emotional benefit of all great audio science and design).

In short, we’re here to make sure that you invest wisely in your hifi so that you enjoy fully that deep, emotional response that is the true purpose of all music.

The importance of lowering the noise floor

Reducing unwanted noise or interference has been the key to many of the greatest and most worthwhile advances in audio performance over the last decade, better connecting us with our music and the musicians who are creating it, in both the analogue and digital domains. Squeezing ever greater performance by lowering the intrinsic noise floor in any given product, in conjunction with the other products in the chain, rather than purely trying to produce more and more information at the expense of balance and naturalness – this is a far more complex subject than at first it might seem.

Stillpoints Adapters

Stillpoints

If you have a device that has direct contact from top to bottom, (12 o’clock to 6 o’clock) like single bearing devices, no matter what the materials used, it is damping – not isolating.

True isolation does not have a direct path between surfaces. Stillpoints patented technology stacks bearings such that there is no direct contact between the component and the surface upon which it rests.
