Bowers and Wilkins 705S2 Review

“Along with wide frequency response and wide dynamic range, the 705d2s have a cleaner, more natural tonal rendition than their past iteration. Acoustic instruments feel correct and that bastion of audiophilia, the female vocal, is well represented. Whether it’s the quirky delicacy of Aimee Mann or the raw power of Chrissie Hynde (don’t make me go you-know-where) these mighty mini monitors are right at home.


Monitor Audio Silver 200 Loudspeakers $1500 Review

“The Monitor Audio Silver 200 and Revel Performa3 F206 are both excellent speakers for their prices, and it’s unlikely that anyone shopping in the price range of one would consider anything in the range of the other. The Silver 300 would be a more natural competitor for the F206, if not on the basis of price, then at least in the similarities of their sizes and driver configurations. Within its physical limits, the Silver 200 held up well against the Performa3 F206, offering a high degree of transparency, precise imaging, and punchy, well-controlled sound. However, as good as the Monitors were, the Revels are still the best-sounding speakers I’ve had in my listening room. It would have been quite an accomplishment for the Silver 200s to have outperformed them at less than half the price.”

Q Acoustics 3050i Review

“With effortless concentration they ride the piece’s undulating waves of techno beats, taut and punchy and punctual through the 3050i’s woofer. The Q Acoustics’ ability to anchor the deepest, most foreboding notes allows them to communicate threat and peril effectively.”

Alta Audio Hestia Titanium Loudspeaker Review

“The imaging and sound staging of the Hestia Titanium is as good as I have heard in my room. It’s vivid and well resolved, yet the smooth mid band and treble provide great contrast to the dead silent background, allowing images to really pop into focus. Not as laid back as the Lansche 4.1, or as forward as the Sonus Faber Lilium, they most resemble the GoldenEar Triton Reference in soundstage perspective. The depth is excellent, and left to right width is limited to how wide the speakers are placed and the quality of the source material. The dipole mid band calls no attention to itself, but would appear to help resolve and untangle densely recorded compositions while adding a nice rendition of air and space when present on the recording. While precise, they were not as laser focused as the more than twice the price Lilium. There is a slight rounding to the outlines which sounds very natural and convincing with the Hestia Titanium. Here the Hestia Titanium and the 55K Lansche have much in common. Both present music in a way that very slightly de-emphasizes outlines in favor of a fleshier, dimensional image. Or perhaps they are simply rendering what the signal is presenting? Either way, this is hardly a criticism and is a quality that I much prefer.”

Audioengine A5+ Wireless Powered Loudspeakers Review

July 15, 2018 § Leave a comment


“It would be remiss of me not to evaluate the A5+ wireless capabilities via Bluetooth, and the news here is excellent, as well. The A5+ has the latest generation of Bluetooth technology (Bluetooth 4.0), with support for aptX HD, aptX, AAC and SBC, so that should cover just about any wireless device (whether Android or IOS) that you need to stream from. And with an operational range of about 100 feet. However, the real star of the show here is aptX HD, which allows for 24-bit upsampling and playback, with very low latency, and for the first time allows for better than CD quality playback via Bluetooth. I have two devices that are aptX HD equipped, the Fiio Q5 and my Huawei Android phone, and I can honestly report that the results are sooooo much better than I expected.”

Sound Lab Ultimate 545 electrostatic loudspeakers $29,995 Review

“The U-545’s prowess in detail resolution on top of instrument separation was of such rarefied order I’ve heard in speakers, that the panel’s 3,125 square inches of planar radiation area projected instruments loud and soft into the listening space meticulously and majestically, in a manner few prestigious multi-driver dynamic speaker systems I’ve heard could approach.”
