Thoughts After T'giving: We Enter The December Holiday Season
Things past and yet to come.
By Roger Skoff
day of Thanksgiving is over, with the December Holiday season is upon us for the
next month or so, and a New Year about to come. That, alone, is something worth
being thankful for. That's not all, though: The past two years, despite rumblings
of continuing health outbreaks, possible new variants, and a possibly risky
coming winter, is no longer pandemic. We – most of us – have survived it and
can look forward to returning to good health and the ability to concentrate on
other things – if not more important, at least more pleasant. We've also
survived economic shutdowns, global shortages of goods, raw materials, and
energy, the hurricane season, the death of a queen, worldwide and even domestic

Gingko Audio VCS Toolkit Review
Improving your music system with little cost and no downside.
Review By Brett Rudolph
always a thrill when you are asked to review products from a vendor for which
you have already done an evaluation. It was exhilarating when your editor wrote
you and asked if you were interested in trying out the new version of something
you had been given a brief chance to try. Nevertheless, that is precisely what
happened when Vinh Vu of Gingko Audio asked if I would like to try out the
improved VCS Toolkit, it and I jumped at the chance. Gingko Audio is an audio company that makes various types of
components. These components range from the sextet modular speaker system and
the Clarissa LE speakers to the VCS Toolkit. In other words, from audio
components to vibration control devices to make things perform better than they
usually would inside your system, or so it claims. That is the subject of this

Mojo Audio Mystique X SE Stereo
One of the most musical, engaging, and flexible DACs I've heard at any price.
Review By Dr. Matthew
Benjamin Zwickel of Mojo-Audio asked me to review his updated Mystique X SE DAC
I jumped at the chance. My last experience with his equipment represented some
of the best performance at any price, much less the huge bang for the buck it
was at around $10K (in fact, the DAC was named the Mystique Evo B4B). The X
signifies Benjamin's next evolutionary advancement. The closest I can compare is
the Porsche 911. Take a thing and focus on making that thing the best it can be,
limited only by the technology and advancements of the time. Don't look left or
right, just ahead; make that thing better and better over time. There is both
logic, and elegance, in this design principle that has worked well for both
Porsche and Mojo-Audio.
