Pass Labs INT-25

Review Pass Labs INT-25 integrated amplifier

With three single ended inputs and 25 watts of power, this Pass Labs won’t immediately rise to the top of anyone mind who is looking for great ‘specs’. But power says nothing, we know at Alpha Audio. One 25-watt model is not like another. And at Pass Labs… well… you know… read on

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 […]

Multitest – The best switch for streaming audio

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 […]

The best floor standing speaker for 4000 euros

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.

Review Primare duo: i15 and SC15 Prisma

With some reviews you prefer to go straight to the conclusion. However, we’re going to hold back for a while. First we are going to introduce the Primare i15 and SC15. Because this Swedish Duo just deserves that. In short: first things first… what are we talking about?

Mass test – Six tube amps – Live Stream replay

Live Tests are fun. And very instructive. For example, you learn which combinations work well and which differences you can and should expect when you change an amplifier. In this test of six tube amps the differences are – as expected – quite audible. But you as a viewer can easily see and hear that […]

Video – Multitest – the best amplifier for 2500 euros

It was time for another big group test. Live on Youtube, with you! On saturday 22-08-2002 we tested seven beautiful amplifiers in the price class of 2500 euro next to each other. Three are a bit different: the NAD is the cheapest with 1800 euro, the Advance Paris is a pre- and power-amp combination. And […]

Review Primare R35 phono pre-amp

Vinyl has been hot for a couple of years now and it will stay that way for a while (we guess). But if you thought you were finished with a nice turntable, then you should definitely read through. Welcome to the world of phono preamplifiers. We are testing the reference model of the Swedish Primare: […]

Multitest Active Monitor Speakers (with video)

It’s almost like vinyl versus streaming: active and passive loudspeakers. Active speakers kill the hobby, many fans believe. But on the other hand: active offers a lot of value for money. Everything is matched. And that has many advantages. We put five completely different active monitor speakers side by side: PSI, Yamaha, Behringer, HEDD and […]
