The Argon music system aims to show you your music in a new light! Stepping up to the Rega Planar 3, this music system also adds a Bluesound Node 2i, allowing you to stream all your favorite music over the internet! The warm tube sound from the Rogue Audio Sphinx beautifully powers the Wharfedale Linton Heritage speakers, highlighting this system’s robust versatility. Much like Argon is the most abundant of the noble gases, this combination is our most popular music system!

Wharfedale Linton

An iconic staple of the Wharfedale lineup the all new LINTON is an incredible sounding loudspeaker with an aesthetically beautiful stand.

Rega Planar 3

Replacing the multi award winning and five times What Hi-Fi? Product of the Year (RP3) was never going to be an easy task. It took a team of designers headed up by Rega's Roy Gandy, two years to develop the all new 'Rega Planar 3' following the biggest re-design of the iconic 'Three' model ever seen.

The Planar 3 comes standard with a Rega Elys 2 cartridge. It's also available without a cartridge, and for those looking for an upgrade to the Rega Elys 2, we recommend a Hana EH or EL as it's our most popular combination in-store.

Home of the Turntable Bar, you can audition Rega turntables in our Pasadena, CA location for a one-of-a-kind turntable listening experience.

Rogue Audio Sphinx v3

Dynamic, transparent, and profoundly musical, the Rogue Audio Sphinx sets a new standard in affordable integrated amplifiers. Utilizing sophisticated circuitry borrowed from our most advanced designs, the Sphinx is able to outperform separates costing far more than this single box design. And with 100 watts of hybrid power, this integrated is capable of realistic volume levels that will rival the clarity and presence of the original performance.

Bluesound Node 2i

The NODE 2i wireless music streamer easily connects to any existing stereo system to unlock and discover a universe of audio streaming. The NODE 2i connects your audio gear to online streaming services, Internet radio and even your own digital music library. The NODE 2i brings high-res audio to any sound system.

Cardas Crosslink Speaker Cable

Crosslink is a Cardas classic that works so well for the price that it just doesn’t make sense to change it. Cardas has been making Crosslink for about 25 years. There are miles of it out there, installed in small to medium sized home stereos and multi-channel AV systems. Crosslink can also be found in professional applications, such as in PA & concert systems, and in competition level car audio installations.
