Tube Amplifier by Case-Real for Elekit

Japanese designer Koichi Futatsumata, founder of Case-Real studio, has designed a vacuum tube amplifier for electronics manufacturer Elekit. Elekit traditionally manufacture affordable, high-end audio equipment in kit form. Fatsumata was commissioned to design an amplifier that would be sold ready-assembled to appeal to a younger generation. The prototype shown largely follows the established typology of tube amplifiers but the circuitry and mechanical parts that are usually left exposed to aid cooling are hidden inside the steel casing. Instead, the aluminium top from which the vacuum tubes protrude acts as a heat-sink to dissipate heat from the components. 

All the controls have been integrated into two front-mounted aluminium dials. ELEKIT TUBE AMPLIFIERby Koichi Futatsumata / CASE-REAL. Design of a new generation vacuum tube amplifier for EK Japan Co., Ltd.(Fukuoka, Japan) who develops numerous electronic kits/ gadgets targeted at both children and adults. Traditionally, the types of assembly audio kits EK JAPAN has developed have been largely for audio or mechanical maniacs, for an affordable price, thereby serving their quality of life by way of spending time to assemble and then to enjoy the audio from what they have made. The direction of a project commissioned to us this time was completely different and was to design a compact, stylish vacuum tube audio consonant with the life style of young generations novice about vacuum tube but are naively interested in the charm and atmosphere created from/ via a vacuum tube amplifier. 

The prototype, as shown in the photo, is an embodiment of the concept which symbolically gives an accent on vacuum tubes on the top, supported by aluminum dials on the front integrating all controls thereinto and by the sides made of cast steel. So that a vacuum tube light stands out, the mechanical structure and parts are kept inside and the top aluminum plate functions as a heat sink instead.The circuitry a hybrid configuration, and, on the right side is a mini- jack for portable music players like iPod.

Speedcast strikes US$135M buyout of US-based infrastructure provider

Speedcast International has entered into an agreement to acquire US-based remote communications and multi-network infrastructure provider for US$135 million. The Australian-listed satellite telecommunications service provider told shareholders on 28 August the acquisition is set to strengthen Speedcast’s global competitive position in government, maritime and enterprise sectors. Speedcast will acquire the business from affiliates of HPS Investment Partners, LLC Tennenbaum Capital Partners, LLC and certain other members of Globecomm. Globecomm Systems is present in 100 countries, and estimates US$15 million in annual cost synergies within 18 months after the acquisition. Specifically, the acquisition will be funded by a fully underwritten US$175 million add-onto Speedcast’s existing seven‐year senior secured credit facility from the US institutional term loan market, which will also be used to repay a portion of Speedcast’s revolving credit facility and thus enhance Speedcast’s liquidity position. 

The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2018, subject to the completion of customary closing conditions, including regulatory approvals.

Coming Clean with Soap & Water

Such vision has established Soap & Water as a destination for luxury products for Newport locals and visitors to the endearing seaside town. General Manager Joanne Potts is the visual merchandiser at Soap & Water. The creatively crafted store window displays are precisely lit to sparkle during the holidays and glow in the evenings, drawing customers to the 1,000-square-foot store. Approximately 70 percent of the sales at Soap & Water are generated by visitors to the area. DeYoung views being located in a tourist area as an advantage. 

DeYoung factors in efforts to attract locals within the store’s marketing plan. Involvement in events like bridal shows, boating events and the New England Flower Show gives the store exposure and gains fans and followers on the store’s social media accounts, website and email list. DeYoung and Evangelisti also own apparel stores in R.I, Charleston, S.C., and The Villages in Fla. After several years of planning and development, DeYoung and Evangelisti recently added their own product line to the store. The line is inspired by and named after an island off the east coast of Africa in the Indian Ocean where DeYoung and Evangelisti visited a few years ago. 

The resources on the island were so healing that they decided to bring these beautiful, raw materials home to Soap & Water and develop a bath and body collection unrivaled by anything they had ever experienced. With skin care products outselling cosmetics for the first time in 2017, the personal care marketplace is growing and the store plans to add more to the Indigo Isle product mix in 2018..

Top 1,620 Reviews and Complaints about Kirby Vacuum Cleaners

I normally never allow sales reps to come into my home, but I was somewhat interested because I was in need of a new vacuum cleaner/rug cleaner, and since the Kirby system offer both, I gave the demonstration a try. One of the sales rep made a racial slur which took me by surprise. Then the sales rep said that he can tell that I was from St. Louis because I loved killing roaches and bugs. The second sales rep and I looked at each other as if we could not believe what we had heard from the first rep. 

Then the second rep just at the floor and started shaking his head in disgust. During the demonstration, I learned that the first rep was actually training the second rep. Anyway, once I agreed to purchase the system, which was $2100, the first rep went to retrieve an application for financing purpose. He started to sweat really bad. That when I became afraid in my own house because I saw anger in the second rep’s eyes, but I immediately wanted to take control of the situation because my husband was at work and I was at home with my young son. 

I could not believe he had cursed right in front me! Then, the first rep came back in the house and rudely told the second rep to start vacuuming my carpet. That’s when the first rep got up in the second’s rep face and demanded him to do it. I told the second rep at that point that he did not need to vacuum and I would do it later. This rep left me a voicemail to inform me that he was head to my home to pick up the Kirby system and to return my vacuum cleaner.
