AudioQuest NightHawk Headphones Review

November 27, 2015 § Leave a comment

” You can raise this ruckus with your significant other snoozing away peacefully, or for the ultimate cocoon experience, get two pairs of NightHawk phones so you can both immerse yourselves in larger-than-life sound, regardless of the world you want to navigate. Friends that were able to pry the NightHawks off of my head while I was romping through Lego Jurassic World were thrilled by the guttural sounds of the dinosaurs and other assorted monsters in the game. Best of all, the attention paid to the ergonomics of the NightHawk phones makes for a comfortable game-a-thon. After you shoot about eight thugs, you won’t even remember you have headphones on!”

KISO ACOUSTICS HB-X1 STANDMOUNT LOUDSPEAKER REVIEW

November 27, 2015 § 1 Comment

“The Kiso Acoustics HB-X1 is always going to be a niche product. It’s a small speaker for a big room that sounds like a much bigger speaker, and many will just buy a bigger speaker instead. But not everyone: some want big speaker sound without big speakers, and are prepared to pay big speaker money for the best small speakers they can get. And, they are exactly the people who will be seduced by the utterly captivating, utterly believable sound. Through the Kiso speakers, If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears is more than just an album by The Mamas and the Papas!”

ORIOLUS 4-DRIVER HYBRIDS – Review

November 26, 2015 § Leave a comment

” Heaping blanket praise on a midrange-meaty earphone is against a trance-head’s morals. I’m about to sin big time. Oriolus spits contrasty, speedy, wide mids. They shoot straight out of Oriolus’s strong, thwacky bass, never to get mired by either bass or high mids. They rise fastest and highest just below the shininess where mids go meet the highs. There’s a bit of wet reverb that keeps female vocals fractionally hanging on. And male vocals are bite authoritatively. The entire band is wide, relatively deep, and round out an impressive 3D image.”

Matrix Quattro II DAC – Review

“Playing through my Marantz CD-52 SE > Coax > Quattro II > PM-44 MKII SE > Mission 702e it is incredibly clean and crisp. It really brings out the air and subtle detail in music, and with the setup I have this compliments it very nicely as it is a tad on the warmer side usually. It doesn’t lack body however, it is very flat and true to source not adding any real flavour of its own.”

Sennheiser Orpheus HE1060/HEV1060

“All controls on the front panel are motorized and may be controlled by a remote, which is still in the works. Although motorized volume controls are readily available, Axel lamented not being able to find motorized switches of sufficient quality for use with the Orpheus. Their answer: They used motorized pots; built some custom spring-loaded detents for then so they had a satisfactory “click”; and then use the voltage sensed to trigger mode switching.”

The (New) Hi-Res Buzz

November 25, 2015 § Leave a comment

“Further complicating things, you’ll also find disagreement among the people who make hi-res capable hardware as well as the people who make hi-res recordings. Is 24-bit/96kHz the holy grail of hi-res? Or is 24-bit/192kHz better? Or is DSD the best? Or double DSD? Or quad DSD? The real answer is none of the above. You see, the most important thing, even with hi-res audio, is the music. Music comes first. If all you care about is sound quality, listen to the wind in the trees. If you want to enjoy music, listen to music you enjoy.”
