” There are both positives and negatives to this. The immediately obvious positive is that the full mono balanced configuration delivers four times the power that a single CMA800R would deliver in unbalanced mode. There is also individual channel control of left and right channels, while having two completely separate mono amplifiers guarantees complete channel separation.”

‘The overall sound quality, look, and feel of the Denon AH-D7200 are very good. As stated earlier, I think it comes down to your preferences and how comfortable these are on your head. I certainly understand and support having a closed-back set of headphones; and, if this is what’s driving your decision, I would definitely recommend the AH-D7200.”

” Track nine, Passacaglia, is always fun and a good system test. As the music starts from a barely audible creep, the strings are very sweet sounding. One can almost smell the wood of the instruments, if the listening room lights and one’s mind are turned off. As the horns slip in, they have great definition even at very low volume levels. This is always the mark of a good DAC.

McIntosh RS100 Wireless Speaker Review

“At this point, I caught the bug and started burning through a bunch of tracks just to hear stuff. The Shelby Lynne audiophile classic “Just a Little Lovin’ ” left my mouth hanging open: The bigger-than-life opening drum kit and guitar notes, followed by Lynne’s huge and sultry voice, were set into a seemingly boundary-less soundstage. The high-quality material from Frederick Fennell leading the Dallas Wind Symphony, courtesy of Reference Recordings, was also favored by the RS100s. The speakers beautifully delivered the flutes, woodwinds, and horns in the “At the Ballet” section of a medley from A Chorus Line, filling up the room with their collective, harmonious power. And I could go on, of course.”

“Low-level resolution was also very good. During Harry Connick, Jr’s rendition of “A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square”—a tasteful, intimate track for voice, sax, and bass—the textures were velvet, relaxed, and forgiving. Micro-dynamics and transient information were good, and the percussive hand-tapping upon the bass was nicely defined though not quite as crisp as I’ve heard it sound on my reference ATCs”

Benchmark AHB2 Reference Stereo Amplifier Review

May 24, 2017 § Leave a comment

“The Benchmark AHB2 embodies everything that a solid-state amp should. It is a technologically advanced and remarkable amplifier that can hang with any amp in its class because it is sonically transparent, images beautifully, and produces authoritative bass. While costing only $2,995, it is hard to imagine asking for much more in a power amplifier. In fact, if the AHB2 cost another $1,000, I would still call it a bargain. Interestingly, while my Focal speakers are easy to drive, the AHB2 can probably drive a set of modestly inefficient floor-standing speakers to reasonable listening levels without any strain whatsoever. If you are looking to spend between $2,500 and $4,500 on a stereo, solid-state amplifier, it would be foolish not to consider the AHB2 a strong contender.”
