During the trip to experience music and meet partners in Europe this time, we are really pleased to meet the official distributor of ThivanLabs in Germany and Europe, Mr. Eckhard Derks, TCG Handels Gmbh. After a two-year hiatus from 2019 – 2022 due to the pandemic, this is a great time to discuss and expedite the 2023 new product introduction plans with distributors and dealers. It is a pleasure that audio activities have started again and although there are more challenges for manufacturers, distributors and dealers, we hope and believe that a good partnership will always bring success and a thriving audio community in 2023.
It was also great that we had the opportunity to visit the showroom of Mr. Bernd van Hal, the owner of Novus Audio, Kampen, the Netherlands. Here gathered so many strictly selected Hifi products and were demonstrated in very good setup and nice decoration. It is truly fantastic to see so many ThivanLabs tube amp models displayed neatly and eye-catchingly, especially ThivanLabs flagship SUN-833X, the latest amp model in 2022.
The studio space is not too large but has a great sophisticated and aesthetic touch by its owner. Mr. Bernd surprised us with his thoroughness in setup and in room acoustics. There will be a separate post about these interesting things.
