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?
We recently had the Gato AMP-150 on Alpha-Audio’s test bench. We were very impressed with this beautiful amplifier. From the same brand we now have the GATO DIA-250S; an integrated amplifier with DAC. We’re curious to see how it performs, are you?
At Alpha-Audio we prefer to think of ourselves as down-to-earth music lovers. When you read our reviews, you will notice we are especially charmed by audio equipment that looks ‘unobtrusive’; not flashy, no gimmicks, no bells and whistles. But of course, they have to sound good. Form follows function. But, honestly… we also – secretly […]
On December 13th and 20th, we tested a total of eight floorstanding speakers at Alpha. Live on Youtube. With live music. It was a great experience to do that. And it wouldn’t have been possible without the support of the participants, the band, the entire team behind the streams and you as the viewer! For […]

We are talking about the Dutch & Dutch 8C – 12,500 euros – ATC SCM100A SL classic – 22,950 – and the Grimm LS1be – 36,000 […]
Great news from the United States of America! You can actually buy Golden Ears; hearing is believing. And that is exactly what we are going to do with this set of monitor speakers or bookshelves. Because golden ears, that’s what we all want, don’t we?
Guru… …that’s a pretty bold name for a brand. After all, a guru knows everything… is the best. A kind of … oracle. If a brand calls itself guru … then we can expect something, right? Importer Hear Everything gives us the Guru Q10. A small monitor speaker that should behave like a full-range model. […]
This Saturday – August 15, 2020, 10:30 CEST – we are going to have a good talk with the Grimm Audio Guys. Eelco Grimm and Guido Tent have earned their stripes in the miraculous world of high-end audio. Well: in fact both on the hi-fi side and in the studio world. But we are wondering: […]
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 […]
