Peachtree Audio nova150 Review

“Combining a high power amp, preamp, DAC, and phono in a footprint just over 14 inches wide by 13.25 deep is no small feat. Giving it the ability to be so musical is excellent engineering. Finally, having it built in North America for under $1600 is remarkable. The only thing missing is streaming software and or Roon integration. But at this price point the nova150 is chalk full of value. The nova150 checks off virtually every category one could want. Admittedly, I’m searching for the next generation of all-in-one integrateds to take me into downsizing phase of life. The Peachtree nova150 is a definite finalist! -Mark Marcantonio”

Klipsch Klipschorn AK6 loudspeaker $14,998 Review

“And my time with the Klipsches was a sobering reminder: Amplifiers and loudspeakers—especially low-power amplifiers and ostensibly easy-to-drive speakers—require careful matching. If the output characteristics of the former don’t suit the impedance characteristics of the latter, it doesn’t matter if both components offer Class A performance under optimal conditions: The sound won’t get off the ground. (I shudder to think how many great products have been poorly reviewed by gurus who condemned them merely for not performing well with their references.) It’s tempting to think that very sensitive speakers in general, and horns in particular, will sound great with virtually any low-power tube amp—but it just ain’t so.”

“I’ve been meaning to set up a proper network-attached storage (NAS) system for a while. This seemed like a good time. I went to B&H, a sort of photography and technology superstore here in New York—if you’re a photographer you know it—and came home with a Synology NAS enclosure and four 4TB Western Digital hard drives. A few hours later, my NAS was up and running. My music library now lives on this NAS, set up in RAID 5 configuration, which means that if any one of the four discs fail, I can pull it out and replace it and it will heal itself—no data loss.

SVS SB-3000 powered subwoofer $999 Review

“Optimally positioning the SB-3000 subs in my room was critical for attaining smooth integration of its output with that of the Quads. Usually I position each sub behind each Quad panel in the two front corners of the room, but this setup overloaded my small, square listening room. I then moved each SB-3000 subwoofer into opposite corners of the room, as advised in the SVS manual, with positive results, including excellent blending of subs and satellite speakers, consistent bass down to extremely low frequencies, and no room overload.
