Review Acoustic Energy AE509 floorstanders

After testing countless bookshelves, we had a couple of floorstanders come over to our Belgium editor. And we’re not sad about that. The Dutch importor of Acoustic Energy, Viertron, wanted to send us a pair of Acoustic Energy AE509. Within two weeks a couple of satin white floorstanders landed directly from the factory in Cirencester. […]

The End of Year Top 5 – Geoffrey

The year 2020 was, to put it mildly, a special year. A disrupted year especially in which a lot of things were questioned and in which we showed our best but often also our little side. Because of the measures imposed, we stayed in our listening room even more than usual. But hey: this was […]

Mass test – Six tube amps – Live Stream replay

Live Tests are fun. And very instructive. For example, you learn which combinations work well and which differences you can and should expect when you change an amplifier.

Review Audioquest Dragon source power cord

Power, energy… the foundation of any hi-fi system. We keep saying it: music is basically modulated energy. And the powercord is not only the last meter, but also the first meter.

Aurender A30

Review Aurender A30 streamer – dac – ripper – preamplifier

The Korean audio producer Aurender has been creating streaming audio products for some time now. And they do that very well. Although the slogan: “The Future of Sound” is not quite ‘fresh’ or relevant anymore. Their line-up is. Models like the W20SE are – literally – leading. And the A10 was – for us – […]

Audioquest William Tell Silver and ZERO speaker cable

With the arrival of Garth Powell, Audioquest has gained a lot of interesting knowledge. Both in the field of power ás in the field of cables, as it turns out. Because not only has Garth developed a complete series of power products (here you find our multitest), he also developed an extensive series of power […]
