Veda UK who distribute Arca have stopped dealing with them - I actually thought Arca was Veda; or should I say Arca was a cabinet maker building whatever Veda UK marketing came up with to sell.

No info from Veda UK about 'Arca' surviving in any shape or form now that they have severed ties with the 'manufacturer'.

Best regards

Joe

PS Do you specialise in big transients or little transients? - I have a few standing waves you could maybe look into :)

Thanks Joe,

I was a bit surprised I hadnt heard this already, afterall arca have a huge forum banner and such! They are lovely units..... id buy one if only they cost something sensible!

ps. my transients are small amplitude high frequency! :D I rebuild my cinema room about every 3 months! Best not get me started on standing waves..... last time i tried modelling my room environment, my head went totally pear shaped as I couldnt ever get out of a transient state! :eek:

I tried to buy from Arca a few months ago, unsuccessfully via my local hifi dealer. Eventually I made my own units from MDF and used some Ikea kitchen end units and doors for the cabinet finish. You can see them in the "get your plasma out for the lads part II" thread!

Ive been looking into doing a home made thing, but seems alot of work and I have the feeling that even my best effort wont be up to close scrutiny..... so now im looking for custom cabinet makers to do something for me...... after all it is going to be one of the most visible parts of my system so it has to look good!

Ok so the designers for Arca have parted company and will be setting up on their own, as VEDA the distributor owns the ARCA name Arca furniture will soon appear under a different name, If i here any thing different i'll let you know

ah well...... I built my own rack that looks almost as good and only cost a tenth of the cost..... anyhow, the arca type stuff was fab looking so i hope it works out for all involved

Thanks for the Update on ARCA.. I'll hang on before buying some other unit then as I love the ARCA design..

I know they are expensive but they look the part..

Please keep us informed on what happens.

I've just e-mailed kuban for a price list. Their web site is short & sweet. Nice looking cabinets but all you get is a fade in fade out sort of thing. So you can't see the range, prices etc.

these prices look a lot more reasonable for my wallet, anyone know where there are some pictures of the kuban range? (Their website is still in production)
