“There’s a huge thwack to the opening drumbeats, just as much intent behind the wavering electronica underneath, and dynamic range to Dan Bejar’s vocal. There’s a dynamic ease to the acoustic version’s bare arrangement, and a sense of purpose hanging onto the vocal’s eerie echo.”


Gold Note DS-1000 Streamer DAC Review

“I hope everyone who had read this review notices that I’ve written as much about the music I played through the Gold Note DS-100 as the component’s features and sound quality. That’s because the DS-1000, besides being an extremely modern piece of high-end audio kit, is a very musical product. Its reason for being seems to be the enjoyment of music, and the fact that it can stream music and decode files either when connected wired and wirelessly is the icing on the cake. To me, this musicality is the highest compliment I can give an audio component.”

Roon Endpoint with iPeng IOS

September 26, 2017 § Leave a comment


“In other words, Squeezebox Server (a free download) streams digital audio to iPeng’s internal playback engine, one that essentially fakes itself as Squeezebox. We then use iPeng on the same (or second LAN-connected iOS device) as remote control. As a streaming system, Squeezebox still rocks.”

Bricasti M5 network player Review

“The M5 positively shines using USB. In a way it has picked up some of the enthusiasm and liveliness of the Antipodes DS while retaining all of its smooth, organic and relaxed character and for this reason I feel that it provides an overall more high end rendition. Naturally this is also a matter of taste and system matching, but when taking the Aurender as a reference, the M5 has a different character but sounds closer to it in terms of overall refinement than does the DS. Taste matters aside (although I can’t stop talking about its superb bass and gloriously lush midrange), this gives the M5 the edge.”

Music Server of the Future: Your Phone

“While Roon still requires a computer or dedicated server, once you have that in place, everything can be controlled with your phone via a Roon app, which puts the entire system’s power and functionality in the palm of your hand. With Roon in my main system and the phone app installed, I found I had to sacrifice nothing — I have access to all of Roon’s features, more music than ever before, and no compromise in sound quality, whether I play music from a service that offers uncompressed streams, such as Tidal, or files locally stored on my NAS.”
