Primare I15 SC15

Review Primare duo: i15 and SC15 Prisma

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?

Mass test – Six tube amps – Live Stream replay

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 […]

Marantz PM6007

Marantz PM6007 integrated amplifier

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 […]

Denon 110 anniversary series

Review Denon PMA-A110 and DCD-A110

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 […]

First Look Denon 110 Anniversary Series

Marantz Model 30 SACD 30N

Review Marantz Model 30 and SACD 30N

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.

NAD M33

Review NAD M33 all-in-one

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 […]

First impression – Marantz Model 30 and SACD 30N

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 […]

Video – Multitest – the best amplifier for 2500 euros

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 […]
