BALANCED AUDIO TECHNOLOGY VK-3000SE INTEGRATED AMPLIFIER REVIEW

August 28, 2015 § Leave a comment

” BAT VK3000SE is a fine piece of integrated amplifier that will be best suited for vocal centric music pieces such as Jazz, Rock and Pop. The idea of getting the best of both world between tube and solidstate implementation make this a good deal in a single piece. I would highly recommend that both tube lovers or fans of natural organic sound to consider this. However if you are a speed enthusiast or have a taste for dimmed tonality, this may not apply.”

AVID DIVA II TURNTABLE – REVIEW

August 28, 2015 § Leave a comment

Read Here

“The overall effect is that music works more effectively, ‘Anitra’s Dance’ from the Marriner/St Martin-in-the Fields account of Grieg’s Peer Gynt Incidental Music [EMI] does feel more like a dance than simply a set-piece, and ‘In the Hall of the Mountain King’ builds not only in tempo, but also in intensity. That Decca Rhapsody in Blue also contains a recording of Copland’s ‘Fanfare for the Common Man’ which, via the Diva II, has not only a sense of space and distance to the opening fanfare, but the sheer power of the timpani is quite arresting; they have impact in the truest sense yet, despite their power, the timpani don’t disturb or unbalance the performance. The Diva II keeps its head while lesser tables are losing theirs.”

EarWerkz Legend-R custom in-ear monitors – Review

August 28, 2015 § Leave a comment

” The presentations are quite different even though both are supposed to be references as the midrange is much more in-your-face from the LR, and the upper midrange even more so. The more laid-back presentation of the NT-6 doesn’t give the focus on note articulation of the LR, but it does give a more spacious and larger overall sound. From a frequency response perspective, the treble of the NT-6 is much more prominent in comparison to the upper midrange while the LR is the opposite, with a relaxed treble region; treble quality of the NT-6 is a bit higher. Bass is more prominent with the LR and rumble and reverb are more pronounced, although the NT-6 is as capable”

audeze el 8 open &closed – Review

August 28, 2015 § Leave a comment

“The EL-8 is a more down to earth and down the line orthodynamic headphone using all the latest Audeze technologies. The EL-8 is available in an Open and Closed version and we’ll be covering both of them in this review. The EL-8s were launched a few months ago already and the market price is $699 if you’re buying them from the online Audeze store. By setting the price a few hundred USD below the previous entry model, Audeze reaches a bigger market.”

Tube Amp LF-15 Review

August 27, 2015 § Leave a comment

“Due to the sub-bass boost, bass kick and extension are quite excellent – but can be a double edge sword if you already have a really bass heavy headphone or simply doesn’t like that much bass. Though the good news is that the boost is all in the sub-bass region and doesn’t intrude the mid-range at all. An even better news would have been a user selectable bass boost switch, which would have made the LF-15 a more versatile amp. One setting that user does get to play with is the ‘tone’ knob, which doesn’t seem to vary the frequency response that much but there are fairly audible change in the presentation. With the tone all the way to the left, the presentation is on a warmer and smoother side; with the tone all the way to the right, the presentation changes toward a cleaner and detail oriented sound. It is almost like the tone knob is changing the focus of the presentation between the mid-low and upper mid-high range, though I can’t be sure of the exact mechanism behind it. Last but not least, the soundstage is quite good.”

Alpha Design Labs “A1” Live Update Review

” This headphone choice may create a few critical comments as not being neutral or natural sounding, but this is a professional studio monitoring headphone thus should allow for me to hear any faults in the audio signature that the ADL “A1″ may present through a thorough listening session. ”

Pro-Ject Essential II Digital review

“The Essential II Digital needs careful placement to get the optimum sound, especially as it doesn’t have much in the way of suspension. It’s best to place it on a rigid support, away from the speakers or any other source of vibration.”

ProAc Studio 118 Review

August 26, 2015 § Leave a comment

Read Here

” ProAc says the Studio 118s handle all genres excellently, and it’s difficult to argue. They follow the story of The Streets’ Blinded By The Lights: there is real oomph in the kick, the snare snaps and the synthesizer’s out-of-time tremolo gives it all that off-kilter feel of being slightly spaced and paranoid in a club.”

Rogue Audio Stereo 100 Tube Amplifier Review

August 26, 2015 § Leave a comment

Read Here

” With the Rogue 100 female vocals came off very well and I believe male vocals actually improved a bit from what I recall of the Medusa’s renderings. Recordings from Jack Johnson, Hugh Laurie, Sean Hayes, Greg Brown and the aforementioned Mose Allison all hit the mark for full and natural sounding vocal presence. This is a nice treat compared to what many other amps provide.”
