Review – five RCA interlinks – Blind test – cable madness!

On Sunday, January 30, we tested five interlinks live for you; actually, six, because we also picked up the “dropveter” for reference. A beautiful red/white cable that you will find standard in the box. You can watch the entire livestream back here. Below we outline our findings. Beware ‘non believers’; the differences are quite obvious! […]

Review Ricable Magnus cabling: High Class!

Audiophiles are a breed apart but you already knew that. We are always looking for better, larger and more expensive until finally, some of us anyway, we see the light and realize that it is really all about the music and not about some exotic speaker cable. Now this may seem like a strange way […]

Driade Flow Link Reference

Review Driade Flow Link Reference 808 interlinks – Get Connected

Regular readers of Alpha Audio will know by now that we’ve included the Driade Flow speaker cable in our regular set-up for a while now. This is not without reason: it is a great neutral speaker cable which allows us to use it with virtually any configuration of components. The rest of the cabling in […]

What causes audible differences in network cables?

We round off our little investigation into network cables with a listening test and a clear conclusion. As promised we subjected the network plugs to a listening test and listened to three different configurations: shielding fixed on one side, shielding fixed on two sides and double shielded (and both sides connected). Do we hear differences? […]

Review – ten connectors for network cables – Let’s get connected

We test all sorts of things at Alpha Audio. Your editor also a lot in the area of network connectivity. Think cables, network interfaces, converters from copper to fiber, switches, et cetera. However, we’ve never looked at network plugs – connectors. Yes: very nerdy. But useful for the DIY’er. Because you can be sure that […]

Audioquest

Review Audioquest Water, Diamond, Monsoon and Powerquest 3

What do cables actually do to a system? That is the question we are trying to answer for you today. We’ve done comparative tests before but this time we’re going to explore what adding a whole bunch of cables in a set does to the reproduction quality. To organize all this we got the help […]

Review Audioquest Dragon source power cord

Power, energy… the foundation of any hi-fi system. We keep saying it: music is basically modulated energy. And the powercord is not only the last meter, but also the first meter. There are often other cables close to it. In short: powercords are important. And if you don’t believe it or have never tried it: […]

Audioquest William Tell Silver and ZERO speaker cable

With the arrival of Garth Powell, Audioquest has gained a lot of interesting knowledge. Both in the field of power ás in the field of cables, as it turns out. Because not only has Garth developed a complete series of power products (here you find our multitest), he also developed an extensive series of power […]

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 […]

Nubert Nuconnect TRX

Review Nubert NuConnect TRX wireless transmitter

Wireless technology is convenient. Especially if you have to bridge long distances and a cable is not an option. Within an audio setup you can think of a surround setup where the rear speakers are difficult to reach. Or connecting a TV to the amplifier when the TV is in a different place. Until recently, […]
