Review Dynaudio Emit 50 floor stand – roaring giant

Recently, your author had the Dynaudio Emit 10 at home. And it was a delightful experience. The Emit 10 plays remarkably complete and is easy to place and drive.

Review TAD Evolution 2 floorstanding speaker – competition killer

There are reviews that change your perception of your hobby and everything around it. They are products that pry your ‘ow so safe’ anchor points loose and leave you floating for a moment. Lost. It’s frustrating at times, but it also forces you to keep going. To pick yourself up and improve. Away with the […]

Review Diptyque DP107 speaker – Magnetic

People sometimes say that the Dutch are stubborn (and direct, and boorish… but that’s another discussion). But what about the French? According to your editor, French people are even more stubborn. They take a different approach to practically everything. And they are often convinced that they are right. This cán be very annoying, but often […]

Triple Test bookshelf speakers – 1000 Euro – Sonus Faber – Focal – Elac

On Sunday, March 27, we tested three impressive pairs of bookshelfs live for you. We also measured them and combined them with three amplifiers. This is to paint a complete picture.

Review Bowers & Wilkins 805 D4 – A Fresh New Start

August 2021: Bowers & Wilkins introduces the new 800 D4 series. This is always a “happening”, as Bowers & Wilkins can rightfully be called an icon in our industry.

Review System Audio 5.2 silverback – Buchardt A500 – New Age Audio

What do wireless speakers with built-in amplifiers and Digital Signal Processing have to offer listeners? After the livestream on January 9, 2022, it’s time for a review. Not one, but two speakers in a comparison. Although they share the same hardware platform, they sound completely different! We take a look at the Buchardt Audio A500 […]

Cabasse Pearl Keshi

Review Cabasse Pearl Keshi – delusions of grandeur?

“What cool desktop speakers,” I hear as my visitor walks in. “Well… this isn’t really for the desk,” I report cautiously. “But it can be done, right?”, the editorial visitor asks. “Yes, anything goes…”, I say somewhat reservedly.
