NHT C3 BOOKSHELF SPEAKER $1,000 REVIEW

“While both speakers have objectively excellent off axis performance, two differences are interesting. The Classic Three has wider coverage from about 600Hz to about 1.5kHz, and basically the same coverage over the next octave. Thus, the Classic Three does not share the C3’s overall midrange output bump. Perhaps NHT revoiced the woofer/midrange crossover? NHT suggested to me that this difference in lower midrange directivity may result from the different cabinet shape. Additionally, and surprisingly, the C3’s 1″ dome tweeter puts much more sound into the room above 7kHz than the Classic Three’s .75″ dome tweeter.”

PS Audio Stellar M700 Mono Power Amplifiers $1499 Review

“Don’t be fooled by the PS Audio Stellar M700’s relatively pedestrian looks. Its unassuming matte finish conceals an amazing combination of price, power, and sound quality. Considering that this monoblock puts out 350W into 8 ohms, can double its output into 4 ohms, and costs only $2998/pair, it constitutes one of the most powerful amplifiers available for the money, and should be a relative bargain for anyone looking for a robust power amplifier at a sensible price. The M700s may look innocuous, but whenever I turned them on and cranked up the music, I couldn’t help but be captivated by the quality of music they made.”

Stromtank S2500 Battery Power Supply $19,500 Review

“It operated better than advertised, actually, because I’ve never experienced sound like this from my system, other than during those occasional midnight listening sessions. Admittedly, what I consider “excessive volume” might be a bit too loud for many listeners. That being said, I think that only a few listeners might have problems using the S2500 for their high wattage power amplifiers. Those with large systems and especially those with large home theater setups would most likely be better off using the Stromtank S5000. If I had a choice, I would, too, so I didn’t have to worry about the unit shutting down. This is a first world problem if I’ve ever heard one.”

NOBLE AUDIO DJANGO $1,000 REVIEW

“Mids on the Django deliver a warm and full-bodied, almost euphoric, instrumental timbre with an even harmonic bias. Instrumental positioning is just slightly behind vocals but they are in no way brittle or thin sounding.”

“When manufacturer insists to send jointly power amplifiers and preamplifier for a review, this usually means, that a lot of attention, energy and time were dedicated to the synergy between the two and how designer clearly wants a reviewer to experience it.”

“Audiophile recordings with less aggressive mixes sounded wonderful over the AS-61, but the Replacements, REM, and the Rolling Stones albums’ sound was grating over these speakers. They draw attention to the recordings rougher edges, stuff I’d rather not hear.”

AmpsAndSound Hudson Review

“Time for some female vocals, said I. I’m an unabashed Sade fan. Unfortunately, I find the digital versions of her recording pale in comparison to the vinyl. So into the system went my ModWright preamp and VPI Avenger turntable (with 3d tonearm and Ortofon 2m Black). I dropped the needle on Sade’s Promise album and from the first track (Is it a Crime) was blown away. The richness of her vocals was lovely and the placement of the instruments was precise. The speakers were able to handle the dynamic range from the loud intro to the quietest details with equal aplomb. There were rare times when I felt like I could discern the crossover between the midrange and treble, but I can’t swear it wasn’t my own imagination and me listening for something that wasn’t there. When I let myself relax, it was ultimately just involvement and enjoyment of the music.”
