Lamm Industries L2.1 Reference Preamplifier $22,790 Review

Read Here

“The Merrill and the Lamm were similar in other ways as well, the biggest being their effect on listeners. When the Christine Preamp was in line, after no more than a minute a contented expression would appear on their faces, and they visibly relaxed. They ceased talking or whatever they were involved in to give full attention to the playback. These reactions to the Christine Preamp were immediate, repeatable, and always salubrious. More often than not that happened with the L2.1.”

VOLYA AUDIO BOUQUET SPEAKERS REVIEW

http://www.monoandstereo.com/2017/03/volya-audio-bouquet-speakers-review.html

“Its hard to talk about the proper execution of any speakers design as its underlined by the designer vision, but let brain storm anyway. Ceramic drivers from ground up radiate with certain feeling of non ability to completely escape from their inherited “material” imprint. Quite few upper echelon audio companies already tried and are trying hard to push the bar further, but still with very mixed results. Sonic wise, the final outcome is still farer from what’s expected from such premium pricing loudspeakers. As always, I’m keeping myself open minded and ready to experience the progression or proper partner ing. Back to Volya”

HiFiMAN HE-1000 V2 Headphone Review

Read Here

“My conclusion is that all these damned headphones sound good and I wish they were more affordable so I could keep them all. 🙂 Overall the HEK has lost most of that softness that was annoying me previously. It’s now an even more amazingly enjoyable headphone with very few faults. The HEK is very musical but doesn’t match the layering of the Abyss. I actually ended up switching back and forth between the two for most of my listening. I couldn’t really decide…which was a big step from putting the Abyss in another league in my shootout a couple years ago”

TRAFOMATIC AUDIO ELYSIUM POWER AMPLIFIER REVIEW

Read Here

“It was hard to escape the sheer impact of balanced harmonic richness even from the first notes strike. There was something utterly different in the way that Elysium managed to portray the notes. With complexity and in absence of unwanted sonic artifacts cluttering.”

Technics SL-1200G Turntable Review

Read Here

“Finally where I would never have mounted a premium cartridge to the original 1200, because of its general lack of resolution, this is now a welcome addition to the current model. Upgrading the standard issue Technics head shell with something from Ortofon or another specialty manufacturer, and some better head shell wires (in this case, a set of silver ones from Furutech) takes it all to the next level.”

Wilson Audio • Yvette Loudspeakers $25,500/pair Review

Read Here

“The ability to place instruments and voices in a believable space and to deliver exceptionally rich tonal color was just as evident on small-scale classical music. Hilary Hahn’s duets with pianist Cory Smythe on In 27 Pieces: The Hilary Hahn Encores (LP [Deutsche Grammophon 00289 479 6664], CD [Deutsche Grammophon B0019103-02]) are a case in point. While the LP was released after the Yvettes had arrived, the CD had been out long enough for me to listen to it on other speakers in my home and still others in showrooms and at shows. My initial reaction to this disc was of mild disappointment, with Hahn sometimes sounding uncharacteristically harsh and the piano parts lacking a sense of integration and conversation with the violin.”
