iFi Audio’s iGalvanic 3.0 Review

December 17, 2017 § Leave a comment

“Where the Recovery cannot match the iFi piece is on its go anywhere flexibility. A wall wart power supply is required to get the Recovery out of bed whilst the iFi sucks on the host device’s bus power. For yours truly, that meant marginally better sounding MQA-d Bowie (A New Career in a New Town box set) with the Meridian Explorer2 driving a pair of Fitear Air CIEMs, all whilst sat in a hotel lobby with Microsoft Surface Pro 3 on lap. Perhaps we should see iFi’s iGalvanic 3.0 as the goto USB fixer-upper for road warriors.”

STAX SRS-3100 ELECTROSTATIC ‘EARSPEAKER’ SYSTEM REVIEW

“The Stax SRS-3100 system is all about getting new people to experience electrostatic headphone (sorry, ‘earspeaker’) sound, and it achieves that goal brilliantly! People erroneously discount electrostatic headphone systems because ‘they are too expensive’, and then spend thousands on their dynamic headphone system. This deserves to be better known, because so many of those people would never look back. This really is ‘My First Electrostatic’ and if that fits your place in listening, the SRS-3100 is a joy to try.”

Rogue Audio RP-7 Tube Preamplifier $4995 – Review

“I’m happy to say that the Rogue Audio RP-7 was good enough for me to use without yearning to switch back to my reference preamps. Of course, I did switch back to these reference preamps for comparisons sake. I put back into the system the Balanced Audio Technology (BAT) VK-33 preamplifier for a while, a vacuum tube preamp that is one I’ve used on and off in my system for over two years. This preamp sells for two thousand dollars more than the RP-7 in its standard configuration, and although this isn’t a shoot-out, I can honestly say that the two preamps are more the same than different, and that is great praise for the Rogue Audio preamp. I also reinstalled the two solid-state preamps I had on hand. After becoming accustomed to the different sound that a solid-state preamplifier offers, it was easy to deduce that both these preamps sounded superior to the Rogue preamp. But I was also astounded that the reference units were not necessarily better in every area. This is not a trivial matter, not only because both these preamps are 2017 Blue Note Award winners, but because these preamps much costlier than the Rogue Audio preamp.”

High Fidelity Cables Reveal RCA & XLR Interconnects Review

“I was listening to over 20+ interconnects when the Reveal line was introduced in the review queue. It quickly made it to one of my top picks. Most components are priced fairly but I believe the High Fidelity Cables Reveal line are priced unfairly…in a fantastic way. For under $1,000, especially for the RCA cables, I strongly believe it to be an absolute steal. As far as energy and resolution, I even preferred to HFC’s own CT-1 RCA interconnects.”

AudiophileOn TOP 25 BEST AUDIOPHILE HEADPHONES

“The easy answer as to why you would want to buy audiophile headphones is that you want the best sound quality possible. But, very few people get into this hobby and buy one of these outstanding headphones right out the gate. Instead, the pursuit of on head audio fidelity usually involves a lot of tinkering plus many headphone purchases and upgrades along the way to the end game. You might start out with a set of Grado SR80 which are probably the best bang for buck audiophile headphones in the world but before you know it you’re listening to your music on a full array of tube amps and set of Audeze LCD-4 and your pockets are significantly lighter. ”
