” Okay, so technically, it’s actually a few steps removed: “Project Panther,” a company indirectly owned by Jay Z’s S. Carter Enterprises, has made a bid for Aspiro, a company that runs Tidal, and also a similar service called WiMP.

“Prospective buyers will then want to know that the Mani is not a piece of s(c)h(i)it. Far from it, it’s terrific. Do you honestly think Mike Moffat and Jason Stoddard would risk throwing away years of hard won respect on an entry-level phono stage? The Mani doesn’t disappoint one bit, charming with a sense of transparency and easeful-but-clean treble articulation.”

“The RTI1’s metal exterior is handsome if understated. It’s glintier than it is blingy. Its matte surface staves off all but the most greasy of finger prints. It is both light, and sound. As you can imagine, it is cool to the touch. Count it a blessing in the summer. In the winter, well, let’s just say this: as long as you’re not in Canada or Russia, you should be fine.”

” The upper midrange is the most impressive features of this 9-LTD and it performed in the most weird fashion that I’ve really ever come across. This is a spacious sounding headphone, perhaps much more so that I’d originally thought it would be and that factor of good staging properties is generated and fueled by the excellent and airy upper midrange”

“Another thing about the Boulder 1060: speed. Ever notice how some big amplifiers (especially solid-state ones) can sound a little slow—as if held back by their massive power supplies? Not so the 1060. The amplifier was breathtakingly fast, bracingly clean, and harmonically pure. Hey, compared to the $59,000 Boulder 2050s, this might be a bargain that gets you very close to the 2050s’ sound for a fraction of the price.”

” Lets not forget who we are though and that is a headphone site at heart and when an amazing DAC has a built in balanced headphone amplifier, we use it, and I have been using it with everything, due too a very handy Double Helix Cables Ultrashort Adapter that allows me to use all my Kobiconn balanced cables with the 4 pin XLR output so I have used IEMs, closed headphones and my desktop headphones to really get to know the headphone output. ”
