Olá RGMD11,

Nice to hear that! I know Ultimate Audio, I was there with Rui Calado and Miguel. Great dealer with amazing brands.

My APL dac and the streamer, with an special NAS with LPS did by APL, was collected yesterday and will ship to Brazil on the 30th from Amsterdam.

I am very happy with my purchase, and your report about the entry level dac made more confident on my decision.

Do you live in Lisbon? I love Portugal, the land of my family.


Oi João,

Yes Miguel, Rui, Jorge and Mesquita are great guys and very friendly and helpful and as you say Miguel always has some of the very best Brands available, easily the best high end audio store in Lisbon.

I am sure you will not be disappointed, I had never heard of APL but I was very surprised as were the guys at Ultimate Audio, hence Miguel taking the decision to be come a dealer, he is a smart guy.

So after leaving the UK in 1990 I lived in Salvador BA for 17 years and now I have been in Lisbon for 12 years and just obtained Portuguese citizenship (I also have Brazilian permanent residency) and have a small apartment in João Pessoa PB where my wife is from, where you also live If I remember correctly.

Bom fim de Semana

Oh yes! We chat here already!
I moved back from João Pessoa to Fortaleza two weeks ago. But still have the apartment for summer there.
Please get in touch if you come here anytime.
