“Dynamic slam effect is low to moderate and I really enjoy that presentation, even on tracks I know are very slamming. With great smoothness factor usually can come lacking engaging qualities and sometimes I do feel that to be the case. Sometimes, I want more bite and that is what EQ can give me now and then.”

Grado Headphone Shootout: RS1 vs. RS1e

“Twenty-three years ago, in a city far, far away, I purchased the most expensive, mahogany headphones in the world: the Grado RS1. They had been on the market just a year, garnering enormous critical acclaim, and were Grado’s first wood body cans, ever. It took me a year to scrape together the $695 and pay list price for these gems. They were delivered in a mahogany wood presentation case for the first year of production, which I missed getting by a month. Oh well…but they did supply an extension cord as a bonus. (Still not happy about losing out on the case.)

Bel Canto Design Black ACI 600 integrated amplifier $25,000 Review

“I have no idea where my 24/96 FLAC file of Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong performing “Summertime” came from, but the sound was delicious. Then again, this duo’s recordings are so resplendent in the midrange that it takes really poor equipment to make them sound less than great—so I was even more convinced of the ACI 600’s excellence by a recording of baritone Matthias Goerne singing “Meine Rose,” from Schumann’s Six Poems, Op.90, accompanied by pianist Markus Hinterhäuser on their recital Einsamkeit (24/96 WAV, Harmonia Mundi HMM 902243/HDtracks). Though I heard less transparency and detail in Goerne’s voice than I do through the far more expensive dCS rig, it was mesmerizingly sweet, warm, and expressive, and the piano sounded convincingly natural.”

Monitor Audio Silver 300 $2000 Review

March 29, 2018 § Leave a comment

“The Monitor Audio Silver 300 is an extremely accomplished product that offers a level of sound quality unexpected at this price. I was especially impressed by the fact that the overall design is so well balanced and complete. The speaker doesn’t excel in just one or two areas, but performs admirably across the board. Some similarly priced mini-monitors may have a lusher midband or silkier treble, but they won’t begin to match the Silver 300 in bass articulation, low-frequency extension, and dynamic contrasts. Moreover, the Silver 300 plays far bigger than its cabinet size, driver complement, and price would suggest, with robust dynamic authority. It’s also very easy to drive; the Esoteric F-03A’s 30Wpc was more than enough power.”

Shure KSE1500 electrostatic in-ear headphone $3,000 Review

“The Shure amp-digital converter build quality feels robust. The headphone’s Kevlar-reinforced cable is thicker, stiffer and heavier than most in-ear headphone cables, and it’s definitely not user-replaceable. Maximum playtime for the KSE1500’s Lithium-Ion battery is 10 hours. The converter’s maximum resolution is limited to 96-kHz (24-bit) PCM files — nowhere as high-resolution as what’s available from Astell & Kern or FiiO music players. Shure includes a handsome leather case for the amp-converter.”
