“If you choose the Prestige 15Bs to be the cornerstones of a two-channel system, you’ll be getting a pair of speakers that will minimize their footprints while maximizing their sonic presence in all but the largest rooms. Your choice could also serve as the heart of a home-theater system that would be the state of the art in its category. The Prestige 15B is the complete package: aesthetically sophisticated, materially advanced, technologically progressive, and sonically and musically superior.’

Bose QuietComfort 35 Series II Wireless Over-the-Ear Headphones Review

“The QuietComfort 35 is not the sexiest headphone. If you are going for a fashion statement, there are better-looking headphones in the category. Some may consider the QC 35’s sound to be a bit overly polite. Nothing is missing–it’s just that they aren’t going to come out and grab you musically. Think: more Lexus and less Aston Martin”

“The 3D soundstaging I’d heard from the 15Bs in my friend’s system enriched and expanded under the influence of his NAD amplification. When his NAD C 325BEE went to the whip, the Prestiges responded, filling the room with crackling energy. These speakers sounded great at low levels, and I never suffered when listening at reasonable volumes — but as the volume knob turned rightward, the Paradigms produced a jump factor that would mitigate the tradeoffs audiophiles make when we move away from floorstanders.”

MOBILE FIDELITY STUDIODECK TURNTABLE WITH STUDIOTRACKER CARTRIDGE REVIEW

“The build quality of the Studiodeck and Studiotracker cartridge are on point with their competition, and it was clear after a short stint with the table that this is a high-quality design, high calibre performing table that has quite a bit to offer those of us who need to remain price conscious. At an extremely reasonable entry level price, the Studiodeck’s sonic strength seemed to be a well illuminated and well rounded mid-range that was able to faithfully deliver an analogue experience that exceeded my expectations given its modest price. If you are looking for a laid back easy listening presentation look elsewhere. But if your music preferences tend towards faster-paced, higher-energy music of any variety I would think the Studiodeck is right up your alley.”

PS Audio Sprout100 Integrated Amplifier Review

“I was concerned that my cartridge might not work well with the Sprout100 because the Grado is a moving iron, not a moving magnet. But the fixed 47K Ohms, 100pF was just fine, and the fact that the Sprout100 has a built in preamplifier allowed the volume to be adjusted just fine too–no gain issues. Remarkably, buzz distortion (e.g., when a record is not playing but the volume is up) was almost non-existent. In short: very satisfying for what it does. (Of course one can’t expect it to compete with my reference set up–and it did not; but it certainly did well; better than I would have thought.)”
