Multitest bookshelfs

Multitest budget monitor loudspeakers – 360 – 650 euros

Bookshelfs – or monitors – do not have a real low end.  And cheap speakers don’t sound good by definition. Isn’t that right? Well, uh… …in the old days, maybe. But is that still true? We would like to know what the state of affairs is in the entry segment. Say up to about 600 […]

ProAc Tablette 10 Signature

Review ProAc Tablet 10 Signature

The ProAc Tablette 10 Signature is a speaker that you keep to yourself. A loudspeaker that detects the emotion in the music very well and provides fine listening moments. This monitor may be small in stature, but it is big and generous in its reproduction. It offers a lot of insight into the recording and lets all the details through. Add to that an almost magical middle area and you have an excellent monitor speaker. Well done ProAc!

Primare i15

Review Primare I15 Prisma amplifier – streamer

The Primare I15 Prisma is a modern all-rounder with a high user-friendliness. The sound is balanced, completely according to the philosophy of this Swedish manufacturer. The amplifier, the dac and the streamer are all excellent. The small Primare I15 Prisma can be the digital heart of a beautiful set that takes up little space but plays big. We say: Alpha Approved!

Pass Labs XP-22

Review Pass Labs XP-22

The Pass Labs XP-22 preamplifier is another beautiful creation by Nelson Pass. To be honest, we are used to it. Nice about the XP-22 compared to the XP-12 is the gain in dynamics, tranquillity and spaciousness. This is clearly audible if your set allows it. The extra cost of 3700 euros is certainly worth it in our opinion.

Now a pure analog preamplifier in these days of digital audio is of course a niche product. But we are very happy that there are manufacturers who put time, energy, money and research into this. Because the fact is: a beauty like this remains beautiful. And there remains a market for it. Alpha Approved!

Review Pass Labs XP-12 pre amplifier

Pass Labs never introduces anything new. When a new model of preamplifier ends up on the shelves, something has also been changed significantly. This is also the case with Pass Labs XP-12, which succeeds the ‘good old’ XP-10. We put these two beauties thoroughly next to each other!
