Lyngdorf TDAI 1120

Review Lyngdorf TDAI-1120 – Room Service

In early October we could all go to the Koningshof in Veldhoven again to visit the renewed XFI fair, now Dutch Audio Event. As always it was great to get lost in the maze that the Koningshof really is. The supplied map doesn’t help much, if at all, but that shouldn’t spoil the fun. Sometimes […]

Marantz Model 40n

Review Marantz Model 40n – With the ‘N’ of “Neat!”

Your editor still regrets – if we stay within the hi-fi hobby for a moment – one thing: the sale of a Marantz receiver. A quadrophonic monster. We’re guessing it was a 4415. What a wonderful receiver that was. but hey… those were the early days…. Back to present day; the time for Marantz to […]

Atoll SDA200

Review Atoll Electronique SDA200 and CD200 Signature – Vive La France!

France’s Atoll Electronique is a small family business run by brothers Stéphane and Emmanuel Dubreuil since 1997. In the summer of 2018, your author had the opportunity to visit the factory in Brecey and get to know the aimable brothers. The tour, lunch and listening session made for an unforgettable day there in sunny Normandy. […]

Review – Cambridge Audio EVO 150 integrated amplifier – solid all-rounder

After the visit of the exceptional Edge set (Edge NQ and W) we have another product from British Cambridge Audio in today. Importer Dimex likes to put its products in the spotlight and so it should! That way it is easier to put together a shortlist of a certain type of equipment. We don’t mind […]

Multitest – The best amplifier for 1000 Euro – 2022 edition

Sometimes we just feel like doing a big, huge, grande test. It’s educational for us and for you it provides insight into what’s available and how products perform relative to each other. This time we put eight amplifiers side by side. We sampled, measured and listened to all amplifiers. You can find everything in this […]

Advance Paris M60

Review Advance Paris MyConnect M60

Those looking for an affordable all-in-one device have less choice than they might initially think. We regularly see very nice devices pass by but they are usually well over 1000 euros. Today we found an affordable device and for once it is not from Denon or Marantz. It really is an all-in-one device because besides […]

Lejonklou Baozu

Review Lejonklou Baozu integrated amplifier

Over the past few months, a lot of fine integrated amplifiers have visited you editor. Think of the Rega Aethos, Moonriver Audio 404, Naim Nait XS3, Hegel H120, Denon PMA A-110, Marantz Model 30 and Yamaha A-S2200 to name a few. (Re)read our reviews for sure because they are all great amplifiers in the 3000 […]

Technics SU-R1000

Review Technics SU-R1000 integrated amplifier

We know Technics primarily for the SL1200 record player. But connoisseurs know that Technics makes much more than that. Think speakers and of course: amplifiers. Every year – except in the recent Covid years – we step into the Panasonic / Technics room at High End Munich. Purely to see what technical ingenuity has come […]

Review Cambridge Audio CXA61 integrated amplifier

In the price range around 1000 euros for an integrated amplifier with d / a converter, the competition is killing. A manufacturer must really go all out to compete. The product must be versatile, sound just right and be competing in terms of pricing. Tricky. How does the Cambridge Audio CXA61 perform in this class?
