How well does speaker decoupling work? Townshend, Isoacoustics, Primacoustic

On Sunday, April 24, we tried out three speaker decoupling systems for you. The Townshend seismic isolation platforms, Isoacoustics Gaia II and the Primacoustic RX12. We combined these systems with a pair of ATC SCM40A to check out the results. And yes: the differences are greater than we thought!

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! […]

Live Review Wireless Speakers – Buchardt – System Audio – Devialet – KAD

We wanted to start this year nicely. And we estimate that we have succeeded with that in the form of a Live Stream with wireless speakers. Four top-notch speakers that show and prove that wireless audio performs excellently nowadays. Partly thanks to advanced wifi techniques and / or Wisa. In this livestream we have listened […]

Multitest – Four exceptional, top, d-a-converters

Denafrips, Bryston, Rockna or Sonnet? Four wonderful d/a converters. What a choice to make… that’s a tough one! To make it a little easier, we put these four beauties side by side in a live test on May 30, 2021. As a test we included a real live track that we recorded in the live […]

Multitest – Endgame Audio – The ultimate streamer

On Mother’s Day (at least in the Netherlands) – May 9, 2021 – we at Alpha Audio held a live stream event featuring three insanely beautiful streamers.

Triple Test – Grimm LS1a – ATC SCM40A – Dutch & Dutch 8C

On Sunday, March 28, 2021, we held another Live Test in the Artone Studios. We had three active speakers play: the Grimm LS1a, ATC SCM40A and the Dutch & Dutch 8C. Yes indeed: a familiar trio. But with one big difference: the prices are the same this time. How do they compare this time?

Multitest – The best switch for streaming audio

Data is data… A 1 is a 1 and a 0 is a 0. Right as rain. So why are we testing network switches? They don’t make data errors, do they? After all, there are ancient protocols for data transmission. Protocols that have proven themselves for decades. True too… But there are more factors that […]
