    An experienced audiophile friend of mine named Allan who knows the sound of my main 2-channel tube rig almost as well as I do recently visited my home. After listening to one of his favourite CDs, he asked: “Did you buy a new $20,000 pre-amp? “No.” I replied. “A new $10,000 tube DAC or upsampler?” “Nope… strike two.” “New speaker cables or interconnects?” “Nope.” “So… what did you do to make it sound like this?” “Like what…?” I asked, READ MORE

  • Audeze LCD-4 Planar Magnetic Headphones Review

    • 0

    Oscar Wilde once stated: “I have simple tastes… I only like the best.” As a reviewer, I get to listen to a lot of gear and cabling that sounds as good as other products that already exist. Not better… but just as good. For a reference-caliber audiophile product to get my attention, it must sound better than anything I’ve ever auditioned. Stated succinctly, Audeze’s $3,995 USD LCD-4 is the best sounding pair of headphones I’ve ever heard. Product Description: The LCD-4 is Au READ MORE

    When thinking about bargains, the statement “hell hath no fury like a woman who misses a 50% off designer shoe sale” readily springs to mind. And just like disobedient dogs who so instinctively enjoy chewing on haute couture footwear, getting value for money on audio gear and cabling comes just as innately to drooling audiophiles.

  • Product Review: Audio Sensibility Signature Speaker Cables

    Ultra high-end speaker cable reviews tend to be a somewhat pointless exercise in splitting hairs. At $20,000 US, cable ‘A’ has slightly better PRaT and marginally better heft in the bass registers than cord ‘B’. Wire ‘C’ has a tad more mid-range bloom and slightly faster transient speed than cable ‘D’. Sinking into such hair-splitting nonsense over obscenely expensive wires doesn’t interest me. What does get my adrenaline flowing is when I hear cables that offer referenc READ MORE
