Yamaha RX-V6A

Review Yamaha RX-V6A 8K AV Receiver

We don’t review AV receivers very often at Alpha Audio. The reason is that testing AV equipment is quite difficult. Different rules apply than with stereo systems. For example: AV-equipment also processes video. And with video there is a lot to be tested. Then there are countless codecs to deal with. In short: it’s a […]

Sonos Sonance in-ceiling

Review Sonos Sonance in-ceiling speakers

Sonos is well known in the world of multiroom audio. But also in the world of custom installation. The music players and speakers have almost all possible links with smart home systems. That is why they are so popular among installers of CI. But outdoor, in-wall and in-ceiling speakers are still missing. That is now […]

Sonos ARC soundbar

Review Sonos ARC soundbar

Sonos has a reputation to uphold when it comes to ease of use, design and sound quality. The first Sonos zoneplayers set the ‘industry standard’ in terms of ease of installation and possibilities to easily play music from online sources. Now we have left more than fifteen years – and about three generations – behind […]

ATC HTS40

Review ATC HTS40 on-wall loudspeaker

We know British ATC mainly from studio speakers. And bookshelfs and floorstanders. Think of the SCM19 V2 which has become a reference at Alpha Audio. What you may not know is that they also manufacture Home Theatre models. The so-called HTS series. We test the HTS40. A large – heavy – on wall loudspeaker.

Teufel Cinedeck

Review Teufel Cinedeck – soundbase

The Cinedeck doesn’t really hits us when playing music. Films work well, but even then it doesn’t offer the impact that Ultima does. Considering the amount of money, the Teufel Cinebar Ultima is undoubtedly the better choice. So unless you don’t have the space… go for the Ultima.

Teufel Cinebar Ultima

Review Teufel Cinebar Ultima

Teufel creates an excellent sound bar with the Cinebar Ultima. Yeah, it’s big. But that has the advantage that the soundbar is just very good. Both music and film are excellent because of this sound bar.

All Alpha Approved reviews at a glance!

Over the past year, we have rewarded seventeen products with an Alpha Approved award. In our opinion, these are special products within their segment. Maybe it just sounds exceptional. But it can also impress in another way. Think of a bizarre price/quality ratio. Bottom line: special products. We’ll sort them out for you. Nice and […]

Ascendo Home Cinema

Review Ascendo 7.1 home theatre system

Home Theatre. It is not directly a focus point of Alpha Audio. However, since the construction of our custom installation wall and the installation of the Optoma 4K projector – with a beautiful screen to top it off – , we have decided to to review special systems. And the surround solution from the German […]

Sony X800M2 UHD

Review Sony UBP-X800M2 4K blu-ray player

Music has completely switched to streaming for many users. There are countless interesting services with tens of millions of tracks to offer. For video it certainly goes that way too. Although it’s a little more complex there. Not everything can be found at one service. That makes it difficult for a lot of enthusiasts. Maybe […]
