QUESTYLE AUDIO QP2R HIGH‑RESOLUTION PORTABLE DIGITAL AUDIO PLAYER $1,299 REVIEW

“Three sonic treats not to be missed are the sonic effects of the QP2R’s gain and bias control switches and of its balanced outputs. Together, these features allow users to fine-tune the QP2R for a more authoritative and sharply defined presentation. For example, I set the QP2R in high gain mode and switched between standard and high bias settings while driving the MrSpeakers ETHER Flows and found the high bias setting unlocked welcome additional layers of harmonic richness and three-dimensionality. Likewise, I ran the QP2R in low gain mode, with high bias engaged, and with balanced outputs driving my Westone W80 earphones and was rewarded with perhaps the most open, airy, and articulate sound I’ve yet heard from those earphones. A little experimentation can pay substantial sonic dividends.”

ASTRAL ACOUSTICS TAURUS REVIEW

“The Taurus’s excellent staging is down to a more noticeable and better defined low-end presence as well as possessing superior headroom and air in its top-end. It makes a big difference, especially when paired with clean and neutral players such as the AK240 where I think copper infused pairings like this excel.”

“The Mark Levinson № 519 represents the pinnacle of performance in streaming network players. It is a high-caliber all-in-one solution that caters to the most affluent consumers who care only about music from digital sources. All one needs to complement the № 519 is a license to TIDAL Hi-Fi, an iPad, an amplifier, and speakers, and you will have a knockout state-of-the-art system.”

Wilson Benesch • Resolution Loudspeakers $69,500 Review

“The Resolution doesn’t match the scale or emphatic dynamic response of the Wilsons or Stenheims — or Wilson Benesch’s own Cardinal. It doesn’t provide the efficiency of a horn, or in standalone form, the bandwidth of part-active systems. But, above all, it delivers a level of musical coherence and insight, a balance of the convincing and the communicative, that puts it at the forefront of current loudspeaker performance. More refined and even than most paper-coned systems, more natural and richer than most aluminum- or ceramic-coned speakers, far more expressive and engaging than the “high-tech, high-res” brigade, for all its obvious engineering, this is at heart an essentially simple and unfailingly musical device. No speaker is all things to all people, but in a market that seems increasingly divided and polemic, the Resolution sits astride the middle ground, confidently answering many of the musical questions that other speakers ignore or quietly gloss over.”
