Multitest – Four exceptional, top, d-a-converters

Denafrips, Bryston, Rockna or Sonnet? Four wonderful d/a converters. What a choice to make… that’s a tough one! To make it a little easier, we put these four beauties side by side in a live test on May 30, 2021. As a test we included a real live track that we recorded in the live […]

Triple Test – Grimm LS1a – ATC SCM40A – Dutch & Dutch 8C

On Sunday, March 28, 2021, we held another Live Test in the Artone Studios. We had three active speakers play: the Grimm LS1a, ATC SCM40A and the Dutch & Dutch 8C. Yes indeed: a familiar trio. But with one big difference: the prices are the same this time. How do they compare this time?

Live Multitest integrated amplifiers 1200 – 1500 euros

On Sunday, February 28, 2021, we did another Live test. This time with integrated amplifiers between 1200 and 1500 euros. As usual we wrote to all manufacturers that are in our system with a model that would fit in this test. Unfortunately there is a worldwide shortage of parts – especially chips – which makes […]

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 […]

Triple Test high-end Studio monitors – with samples and video

On Sunday November 1st 2020 we tested (Live on Youtube) three beautiful studio monitors. Speakers primarily for the studio. But in fact also very suitable for the living room.

Denon 110 anniversary series

Review Denon PMA-A110 and DCD-A110

Denon is 110 years old. And of course that has to be celebrated in style. The Japanese Company does that with a special 110-Anniversary edition of an amplifier and CD player (and a phono-cartridge by the way). No: not so much a ‘pimped’ 2500-series. More a mix of the SX-series and the 2500-series. Let’s see […]

Driade Flow Speaker Cable

Review Driade Flow speaker cable

The task of a signal cable, whatever it is, is incredibly simple: transport a signal from ‘a’ to ‘b’. Without loss. How hard can it be? Well, we’ve been producing audio equipment for over a hundred years now. And time and time again, cables – digital and analog – have an impact. So it must […]
