With some reviews you prefer to go straight to the conclusion. However, we’re going to hold back for a while. First we are going to introduce the Primare i15 and SC15. Because this Swedish Duo just deserves that. In short: first things first… what are we talking about?
Live Tests are fun. And very instructive. For example, you learn which combinations work well and which differences you can and should expect when you change an amplifier. In this test of six tube amps the differences are – as expected – quite audible. But you as a viewer can easily see and hear that […]
We reviewers are spoiled. We have access to the latest stuff on the market and are allowed to play with that stuff for a long time. Boys (girls too of course) and toys, so to speak. We tell you this because we have the brand-new Marantz PM6007 on our hifi-rack, an integrated amplifier that may […]
No…. you read it right, we’re not talking about the Rega Brio today but about his little brother: The Rega io! Rega Research from the United Kingdom brings its most budget-friendly amplifier on the market. One that targets the novice audiophile who is looking for an affordable solution to connect a few fine monitors and […]
Denon is 110 years old. And of course that has to be celebrated in style. The Japanese Company does that with a special 110-Anniversary edition of an amplifier and CD player (and a phono-cartridge by the way). No: not so much a ‘pimped’ 2500-series. More a mix of the SX-series and the 2500-series. Let’s see […]
Denon has launched its 110 Anniversary edition. We received the PMA-A110 and DCD-A110. A piece of background information and our first impression can be found in the video below.
Legacy… 50 years Model 30. Marantz celebrates it his way: with a new Model 30, complemented by the SACD 30N: a multifunctional player. Streaming and optical media in one nice box. Very convenient. We’re going to open our ears to see if this system can make a little music.
The Master Series of NAD is the statement of the British brand. When NAD presented the new design in 2015, everyone was pretty impressed. What a beauties! Pure gems! A modern housing, touchscreen, beautiful dual tone accents: yes… a true Masterpiece. Alpha, however, was not equally charmed by all models in the new series. At […]
We’ve had the Marantz Model 30 and SACD 30N in our listening room for a week now. Not enough for a complete review – and there are more devices to look at – but enough for a first impression. We have put our first impressions on video for you. And also made a sample-compilation. Not […]
It was time for another big group test. Live on Youtube, with you! On saturday 22-08-2002 we tested seven beautiful amplifiers in the price class of 2500 euro next to each other. Three are a bit different: the NAD is the cheapest with 1800 euro, the Advance Paris is a pre- and power-amp combination. And […]
