AUDEZE EL-8 OPEN BACK HEADPHONES REVIEW

“My biggest issue with the Audeze cans was that they sounded great but they also looked somewhat dated in regards to the aesthetic design. They were also impractical and cumbersome for me to take around with me whilst traveling.

ELBOW CASSETTE PLAYER

“Elbow strips away most mechanical parts of a traditional cassette player, resulting in a strikingly minimal and laconic design. User interaction is made easy and intuitive thanks to bi-axial arm and control wheel, while allowing more playback control than ever before”

MAGICO Q7 SPEAKERS BUILDING

“One can only guess how much time, material and efforts goes into the assembly of the Magico Q7 speakers. Once, you’ll see all the images (50+) from the assembly manual (do note these are only some of the images), I’m sure many will see Q7s quite differently… ”

Focal Sopra No.3 loudspeaker $19,999 Review

“Cymbals and massed sopranos did occasionally sound too prominent through the Sopras. Perhaps this was a consequence of an ever-so-slightly reticent upper midrange, the very thing that makes for the perfect treatment of classic rock and, perhaps, metal/grunge (just guessing). With the Sopras, the Classé Sigma Monos revealed the warts in recordings that had them, and I pretty quickly swapped them out. I better enjoyed analog amplifiers such as Parasound’s Halo A 31 and even Monoprice’s inexpensive Monolith 3: they obscured nothing, but neither did they throw anything in my face. A brief audition with the newly arrived ATi AT543nc amplifier was also promising.”

Audio Physic Tempo plus Loudspeaker Review

March 28, 2017 § Leave a comment

” The Tempo plus has no distinct frequency favourites. Nothing shouts out at you, even on french horn or operatic soprano recordings (conical bore french horn and soprano chest tones are among the most challenging sounds to record and regularly trip up a speaker’s performance). I heard no ‘chuffung’ from the rear port. Each octave balanced perfectly with each other. Bass is fulsome and goes down to 32Hz, plenty for most civilians. ”

Ultimate Ears UE 18+ $1500 Review

“The low frequencies sound really wonderful. Not bloated, boosted, or overstated, there’s a unbroken, fluid transition from 300 Hz all the way down to the bottom of hearing range. If you’re a fan of the Dr. Chesky Headphone Demo Disk, you’ll love how the 18+ Pro perform on the “Shake, Rattle, and Roll Test” (a low frequency sweep down to 20 hZ.) There’s no one frequency range that suddenly pops up due to poor tuning; everything sounds flat and even.”

FIIO A5 REVIEW

“The second tweak for me is a slightly lower emphasis on vocal performance on the A5 over the E12a. The more elevated and planted low end of the A5 and slightly more forward treble will take a little away from the neutral vocal performance whereas the E12a has less low-end and treble emphasis allowing the vocals to come to the fore a bit more.”

Gryphon Audio Designs Antileon Evo Stereo Amplifier Review

” It’s not quite as quiet as either of the earlier amps, though so close that in listening it made no difference. After all, we don’t listen with an ear pressed against a tweeter, which was the only time I could hear any noise from the Evo. Although I’m now relying only on my memories of the sounds of those older amps, I can say that the Evo’s soundstaging was just a touch bigger than the Colosseum’s, and virtually matched the Mephisto’s. I also think the Evo sounded more, um, analog than the Mephisto or Colosseum. By which I mean not that its sound was “slower” or less resolving, but that it was so cohesive — entirely of a piece — and easygoing. Though the Antileon Evo has impressive resolving capabilities and admirable speed and agility, those traits didn’t stand out and call attention to themselves; instead, I simply appreciated how natural the Evo sounded with any music I threw at it.”
