  • Emotiva TA-100 - Small Package - Big Performance.

    The Emotiva TA-100 is an interesting, well-featured and surprisingly capable stereo receiver considering its low profile and sub-$1000 price. It includes almost all the inputs one could ever need both from the past, in the form of a phono input, along with newer features such as streaming USB audio and SPDIF digital ins. I like it a lot, and found it to be a seriously impressive unit, so read on for the full details and to find out just how good it sounds for so little cash. FEATURES W

    Audio Technica LPW40 - An Impressive New Belt Drive from AT.

    The AT LPW40 turntable is housed in retro stylings yet paired with forward thinking performance. Read on for the highs and the lows of this brand new record player. FEATURES Draped in stylish teak exterior with the look and feel like real wood veneer, this new Audio Technica turntable is off to a great and somewhat vintage start. In a move upward from its mostly 'convenience' orientated fellow models though, the '40' does not offer any auto style features. Its a fully manual turnt

    Rega P1 Cartridge Upgrade – New Audio Technica VM95 Series Tested.

    THE IDEA - The Planar 1 Rega is widely considered to be a very good entry level 'serious' turntable. Some would say it is the best choice for a beginner with aspirations of excellent sound on a shoe string. Out of the box though it is supplied with a Rega branded cartridge (Carbon) with a fairly familiar appearance. It looks like a Audio Technica AT91 but with a white coloured stylus rather than the normal yellow or red. I'm not sure what the total of the differences between the AT91 and th

  • Top 6 Worst Sound - Munich 2019

    These 7 systems just didn't fail to perform they were downright embarrassing for the manufacturers. Whats concerning is that in all cases I think they felt their systems were performing well. The clue for them would be the amount of folk who walk in, listen for no more than 3 seconds and walk straight back out. This was not the case in my number one choice for disastrous sound quality where I think show visitors were just simply astounded at how ordinary it was and were trying to figure out how

    Top 7 Best Sound - Munich 2019

    There was some seriously fantastic sound on offer at the 2019 edition of Munich High End. There was also some downright embarrassingly poor sound but I will leave that for a future article (very near future). There may of course be some who were also travailing the halls and Atrium's at the show who will disagree with my thoughts but this is how 'I' heard it. 7) L100 JBLs sounded a bit like history but also like a whole lot of fun. I was genuinely surprised about how uncoloured and cl

    Trends at this years Munich High End Show. (2019)

    Perhaps the most obvious trend is that the show is busier again than last year. This show is now 'the' show for quality audio gear for the world. Okay compared with the likes of the CES in Vegas this show is tiny but the CES encompasses an enormous range of products of which quality stereo equipment is a tiny fraction.  The second trend is that there is next to no AV gear here. I know its a 'High End' show and that implies 2 channel but there is nothing stopping exhibitors from showing off

    More outrageous at Munich.

    Of course there is a Veyron on display it’s a Audio Show! (Actually it’s probably the new version of the Veyron but I have forgotten it’s name due to it not being on my new car shopping list).
