Wait Lists February 03 2017

We currently have wait lists for all of our equipment, including the Adagio, Vintage, Classic, and Minotaur. Sorry about that. At present, my son and I build everything we sell, and we can only build things so fast. Please contact us if you would like to purchase any of our products,  and we'll add your name to the list. There's no obligation. Thanks for your patience.

It is difficult to scale up our business quickly, since it involves leasing space, hiring employees, buying insurance, etc. But if the wait lists persist, we will move ahead. Thanks for your understanding.


Vintage Phono Stage Sold Out Again December 02 2016

We had several Vintage Phono Stages in stock, but they sold out quickly. Like the Classic Phono Stage, it is now available on 1-2 week lead time. Please send us an email if you'd like to buy one, and we'll send an invoice when your unit is ready. Sorry for the delay; we're working to get these back in regular stock. Thanks for your patience.

Vintage Phono Stage Back in Stock November 22 2016

We just finished a batch of Vintage Phono Preamps, and they are now back in stock.

We're continuing to work through our wait list for the Adagio Phono Stage. Please contact us if you'd like to add your name to the wait list, or if you would like to know your position on the list.

Finally, the Classic Phono Stage is available on about 1 week lead time; please send us an email if you'd like to buy one.

Please contact us if you have any questions ( Thanks!

Minotaur and Adagio Update October 17 2016

The Minotaur is back in stock. We’re just finishing a batch of Minotaur amplifiers. We’ve satisfied our wait list and will shortly have a few units left from the batch in stock.

This will allow us to turn our attention back to satisfying our Adagio wait list.

Thanks everyone, for your patience.


Latest Reviews September 07 2016

Greg Voth just published a great review of our Vintage 6SL7 Phono Stage in Stereotimes. Thanks Greg! And our Adagio Phono Stage was selected as a Stereophile Recommended Component in the October 2016 issue. We'll post a link as soon as the list is available online.

Adagio Phono Stage and Minotaur Integrated Amplifier Waiting Lists August 29 2016

The Adagio Phono Stage and Minotaur Integrated Amplifier continue to have waiting lists; approximately 6 weeks for the Adagio and 8 weeks for the Minotaur. Sorry for the delays. My son and I are really gratified by the positive response and the continued demand, and especially by everyone's patience. As of today (8/29), we're beginning a new batch of Minotaurs.

Please contact us if you want to purchase either item, and we'll put your name on the waiting list. There's no obligation and no pre-payment needed - we just notify you a few days before your unit is ready and send you an email invoice. If you don't complete the purchase, your unit goes to the next person on the list, or into online inventory.

We do hope to have these available online without a waiting list in the coming months.

Longer term, we're looking for a larger production space, which would allow us to hire additional help and stock a larger parts inventory to build products faster. But we're moving slowly to make certain that demand is sustained.

Thanks, Scott

Adagio and Minotaur Availability Following Reviews June 27 2016

Following Art Dudley's Adagio review in Stereophile and Steve Guttenberg's Minotaur review on CNET, we've had trouble keeping those two items in stock. We've come up with a way to pre-order them, which is really just a waiting list. Contact us ( and we'll put in your pre-order. About 3 days before your unit is ready, we'll send you an invoice with a link to the online payment portal. There is no obligation - if you don't complete the purchase in three days (or by the time your unit is ready, whichever is later), it just goes into online inventory or to the next person on the waiting list.

The good news is that our backlog is gradually getting smaller, and we hope to have them both back in stock in the coming weeks. Contact us ( to be notified when they're in stock.


Adagio Phono Stage Review in Stereophile May 17 2016

Art Dudley published a super review of our Adagio Phono Stage in the June issue of Stereophile (Art Dudley Listening #162). Thanks Art!!

Since the review came out, we've had trouble keeping the Adagio in stock, and we've sold out several times. Sorry for the frustration. We building more, and we anticipate having them available on or about 6/28. We've also come up with a more organized way to pre-order them (no obligation, and you don't pay until we ship). Please contact us if you'd like to pre-order one, or to be notified when they are in stock.

Tavish Design is a very small, but growing company. Thanks for your patience!

International Version of Adagio Phono Stage May 05 2016

In response to several requests, we have created an international version of the Adagio Phono Stage. It operates on line voltages from 220-240V 50-60Hz, using a custom wound power transformer (and with other power supply changes to accommodate wider supply voltage variations).

Unless we have shipped to your country and postal code before (which is very unlikely), you won't see a shipping option for international locations. Please contact us for a shipping quote. Thanks!

We're on a path to creating international versions of all our products; the Classic and Vintage Phono Stages are next.

Minotaur Back in Stock April 21 2016

The balanced-input version of the Minotaur is back in stock. Thanks for your patience!

The balanced-input version (with 2 XLR balanced inputs and 3 RCA unbalanced inputs) is much more popular than the original version (with 5 RCA unbalanced inputs), and we've been thinking about discontinuing the original version. Let us know if you feel otherwise, or if you have any other questions ( Thanks!

Adagio Phono Stage Back in Stock March 31 2016

The Adagio Phono Stage is back in stock.

I think it is unlikely, but based on the number of emails we’ve gotten, it’s possible that it may sell out again. Not to worry if that happens; we’re planning to build another batch in early-to-mid April. In the worst case scenario, we’ll start an ordered waiting list (like at a busy restaurant), but let’s see first.

Thanks for your interest!

Vintage, Adagio, and Minotaur Availability March 15 2016

Several of our products are out of stock. Sorry for the delay. We got some publicity a few weeks ago on CNET, and our "just-in-time" inventory control system turned into a "not-in-time" inventory control system. We've ordered more parts, and things should start getting back to normal next week (~ Friday April 1). Please bear with us, and thanks for your patience.


Adagio Phono Stage Availability March 04 2016

We've had a spike in orders for the Adagio Phono Stage (thanks everyone!!) and it is temporarily out of stock due to parts shortages. We have enough parts on hand to fill all existing orders, and we're assembling and filling orders in the order received. We've ordered more components and anticipate accepting orders for the Adagio again in late March.

We're sorry for the unexpected delay. We anticipate that things will be back to normal in a few weeks. Send us an email ( to be notified when the Adagio is available. Thanks!
