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. There are often other cables close to it. In short: powercords are important. And if you don’t believe it or have never tried it: […]
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 […]
Last weekend we tested seven loudspeaker cables live on Youtube. With you! Or actually: six cables and a piece of lamp cord from some store. It was an interesting test in which some very audible differences. Well: in our opinion. In this article we explain everything to you.
After our live stream “expansion project” in which we had to pull two 35 meter xlr cables, we got the idea to use CAT6-cable for those XLR microphone cables. Now we want to try these CAT6 XLR’s in our reference system. We soldered two one meter cables together and immediately grabbed the camera to capture […]
This friday morning we tested four power filters: the Niagara 3000, the Shunyata Delta 6, the Torus Power TOT Max and as a baseline the Kemp Powerstrip 8 Plus. During the review we set up our microphones again, so you can listen in. Grab your headphones and watch this live stream (again) if you like.
Ethernet cables: always a nice subject. Is there an audible difference ? Is there no difference at all? What are the possible differences? We take a different approach. Instead of working everything out in a written article, we prepared our sample setup and simply made recordings of the various cables. Have fun watching and listening!
Mains power is nowadays rather polluted with HF noise, the AudioQuest Niagara 3000 ‘low noise power distribution system’ offers a solution.
With the arrival of Garth Powell, Audioquest is full of energy. Bad joke… But of course, they’ve always had mains cables. But not only has this cable line been thoroughly revised by Garth – resulting in a much better sound – filters have also been added. We’re listening to the new Niagara 1200. The entrant of this line
We live in a time of LED lighting, switching power supplies and more and more electrical appliances. This has consequences for good hi-fi systems. Chances are that they don’t sound as good as they could. The Audioquest Niagara 5000 has room for twelve devices: eight sources and four amplifiers. That’s a lot. More than many a lover will need. Compared to ‘directly in the wall’ we hear considerably more tranquility. And so more music. It is just better to follow. In terms of sound, we hear an open sound image in our set. Compared to the Kemp, the middle is more prominent. That’s not worse or better: it’s a matter of match and taste.
