A fact of life in this society is that it is becoming increasingly difficult to find silence. The world is getting busier and with that we also have to deal directly with noise pollution. Although that could also be due to humanity becoming less and less tolerant. However, that is another story. We are now […]
This is a review high on our readers’ wish list: the Purifi EVAL1 DIY amplifier (stereo) versus the NAD C298. Also an Eigentakt power amplifier. Now we would have liked to do this one much sooner, but well… time and all that. In addition, the EVAL1 is running at your author’s home, just like the […]
On Mother’s Day (at least in the Netherlands) – May 9, 2021 – we at Alpha Audio held a live stream event featuring three insanely beautiful streamers. Top of the bill: the MSB Discrete DAC with Renderer module, the Grimm Audio MU-1 with Mola Mola Tambaqui dac and the Naim ND555 with PS555 power supply. […]
We have another wonderful live stream planned for you. On May 9, 2021 at 10:30 we are going to start listening to three ultra-high-quality streamers: Naim ND555, Grimm MU-1 with Mola Mola and the beautiful MSB Discrete DAC with renderer module. In short: the crème de la crème.
When we spoke with Peter Lyngdorf about Purifi Audio at the High End Munich 2019, we were immediately very curious.

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 […]
There are systems that just only really work when it is set up in a certain ecosystem. Now that we think about it, this applies to quite a few systems. But if one stands out, it’s Naim. Right… that stubborn British brand. With DIN cables, separate power supplies and the left and right speaker connections […]
Data is data… A 1 is a 1 and a 0 is a 0. Right as rain. So why are we testing network switches? They don’t make data errors, do they? After all, there are ancient protocols for data transmission. Protocols that have proven themselves for decades. True too… But there are more factors that […]
We have some nice stuff from Germany. Again. And they are – again – from Nubert. This brand is also fully committed to active loudspeakers and they have again added their own twist, pardon Schwung to it with the Nubert X-4000 RC active monitor speaker. We’re going to check them out!
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 […]
