Acoustic Energy AE500

Review Acoustic Energy AE500

We don’t have to get used to the Acoustic Energy AE500 for long because this speaker is completely balanced. We put Roon on shuffle and notice that most genres come through well.

Ascendo Home Cinema

Review Ascendo 7.1 home theatre system

Home Theatre. It is not directly a focus point of Alpha Audio. However, since the construction of our custom installation wall and the installation of the Optoma 4K projector – with a beautiful screen to top it off – , we have decided to to review special systems. And the surround solution from the German […]


Review ATC CDA2 MK2

Recently we visited the ATC SCM19 V2 monitors and they were so good that they have become our new reference. In order to drive these speakers properly, we went from an integrated amplifier (bye bye Bryston B60r) to a separate pre- and power amplifier combination. In this way, the closed ATCs get sufficient power and […]

Acelec One

Review Acelec Model One

All in all, the Acelec Model One looks very neat. No thick seams, excess screws or crazy corners. The connection on the back of the cabinet also sits securely in the cabinet and allows for all kinds of cables. Nice work.

Multitest: Seven integrated amplifiers 5000 – 6500 euro

What a test. We have learned a lot from being able to put these beauties right next to each other. Because honestly: they are all beautiful devices. Every brand has its own signature. Every brand has its strong and less strong points. And unfortunately it’s true: saving money makes sense.

Audiolab 6000N

Review Audiolab 6000N Play streamer

Today we are testing the Audiolab 6000N Play, a streamer with full size and a lot of quality under the hood. It is brave that Audiolab dare to interfere.


Review ATC SCM19 V2 monitor loudspeaker

The ATC SCM19 V2 loudspeakers don’t seem to offer much spectacle at first sight, but let that be their strength. When you take the time to get to know these speakers, everything becomes clear.

Aqua La Voce S3 DAC

Review Aqua La Voce S3 Discrete Dac

The Aqua La Voce Discrete Dac is a delicious d/a converter. On the inside it is full of quality, discrete components and on the outside it exudes class and solidity. The sound is, as expected, excellent. Fast, insightful and with a touch of Italian flair. Its modular structure and the possibility to perform upgrades complete the picture. Bellissima!
