Review DALI Phantom M-375 in wall speaker – Fantoomsound
The world of cinema and custom install is very different from that of traditional hi-fi. Custom Install is, however, a strongly emerging market. For years. Just look at the range of all major brands. Where first bookshelfs and floorstanders dominated, you now see more and more in-wall and active models. The wishes and demands of […]
Review Primare A35.8 – the bridge between movies and music
Sweden’s Primare is a brand that has forty years of experience producing hi-fi. And it applies delicious Scandinavian sobriety in the process. Focus on the important things. Think of a in house developed, solid power supply, sleek design without bling and use of proven concepts. Think of Hypex nCore. We take a look at their […]
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 […]
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.

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.
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.
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.
