Analogue Artisan A1 Series Turntable With Remote Control VTA/SRA Mongoose Tonearm And Pod Review

World Premiere Review!
Analogue Artisan A1 Series Turntable
With Remote Control VTA/SRA Mongoose Tonearm & Pod

Truly reference sound quality with astonishingly low distortion.
Review By Tom Lyle
Brian Calaio, the owner and chief engineer of Analogue Artisan and I have two things in common. The first is our love of music; the second is that we both believe that once a high-end audio system gets to a certain level of refinement, everything contributes to the sound of the system.

If 24/96 Is Officially The Minimum For High-Res Audio...
Why are 24-bit/44.1kHz music files labeled 'Hi-Res Audio'?
Editorial By Steven R. Rochlin
Here's some food for thought: If the official definition of Hi-Res Audio by the Japan Audio Society (JAS) is a minimum of 24-bit/96kHz [Decoding: File playability of 96kHz/24bit or above (FLAC and WAV both required – source JAS)], then why are 24-bit/44.1kHz digital music files being called Hi-Res Audio / Music?

Is It Time For Academy II?
Roger Skoff offers another suggestion to help our hobby and industry.
Article By Roger Skoff
There's been a lot of talk, lately, about the state of our hobby and industry, and about what we might be able to do to bring them back into the mainstream of public interest. All kinds of suggestions for bringing about a high-end "renaissance" have already been given, both here and in other publications, and the consensus seems to be that, if we take the right approach, it's far from an impossible dream.

World Premiere In-Depth Review!
JBL L100 Classic Loudspeaker
A classic looking speaker with truly modern sound.
Review By Tom Lyle
Because I was a working musician from around high-school onwards, and more seriously during the 1980s, spent quite a bit of time in recording studios. In the studios I noticed many different makes and models of monitor speakers, and a large percentage of them were made by JBL.

Furutech NCF Cable Booster-Signal
Life often contains hidden gems awaiting exploration.
Review By Jeremy Kipnis
Sometimes, you can't help but get giddy about a product that most everyone is going to gripe that, "It can't possibly work!" But the fact is the highly debatable yet finely engineered Furutech NCF Booster-Signal I've been lucky enough to be closely reviewing these past few months clearly improves the clarity, focus, resolution, and musical enjoyment...

KEF LSX Wireless Music System
The greatest thing since sliced bread!
Review By Phil Gold
What a pleasure to find an inexpensive component that excites a high-end reviewer. And a product from KEF! KEF Chorales were the first decent speakers I owned. Modestly priced, high performance, utterly reliable, what's not to like?

Re-Entering Analog: Assembling An Analog System
Featuring Pro-Ject turntables, Parasound JC 3 Jr. and Okki Nokki Record Cleaning Machine MK II.
Review By Dwayne Carter
The passing of a family member is often a time of reflection and grief. With the passage of time, wounds heal, and some memories begin to fade. If you are lucky, a few remnants and reminders get passed down to you. A lifetime of possessions can be reduced to a storage shed (or two), then eventually down to a few boxes.

Manley Labs Absolute Headphone Amplifier
The makings of a legend!
Review By Gary Alan Barker Of Headphone.Guru
Back in the late nineteen eighties I ran a small boutique by appointment only high end Hi-Fi shop, and at that time our preamplifier of choice was the Manley (their first and only product at the time if my memory serves correctly), which we considered to be the finest audio product in the world.

Kronos Sparta 0.5 Turntable And Upgrade To Full Sparta Review

World Premiere!
Kronos Sparta 0.5 Turntable & Upgrade To Full Sparta

This is where I want my music to be!
Review By Rick Becker
We are all doomed to extinction in our own little way. It's called death. And the specter of death causes many to seek comfort in the familiar – LPs, old movies and TV re-runs, for example. But lest I be branded with the moniker of macabre, allow me to point out that turntables, cartridges and phono stages have made impressive strides in quality over the past two decades-long since the reported death of vinyl.

Senseless Rambling
Is Vinyl The New Heroin For Hard-Core Audiophiles?

IRL: I've seen the needle and the damage done.
Article By Steven R. Rochlin
Last month's Enjoy the Music.com review of the VPI Nomad is but one example of the many new turntables, vinyl LPs and associated equipment making their way into the home of many music lovers worldwide. Once again the record album is experiencing double-digit growth over the previous year as consumers, and bands, can't seem to get enough of what they desire.

Coming At It From Both Directions
Roger Skoff writes about music lovers and Hi-Fi.
Article By Roger Skoff
Back in the very earliest days of Hi-Fi (high fidelity), everybody had a pipe organ record. It might have been, if the listener was into "pop" favorites, something featuring George Wright "at the mighty Wurlitzer organ". (Slaughter on Tenth Avenue, for example) or, if the listener was more classical music oriented, it might have been E. Power Biggs thundering out Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, working every key and every pedal mightily as if to prove the validity of his name.

Krell SACD Standard CD/SACD Player

Superior Audio Equipment Review
Krell SACD Standard CD And SACD Player
Can One Player Do Both Formats Well?
Review By Alvin Gold
Krell Industries announced its first high-resolution disc player, the SACD Standard, at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January 2003, and it is now in full serial production. It is a dedicated SACD player of some sophistication, but it is far from representing the limits of Krell's ambitions in high-resolution disc replay. A universal player is currently in development, which will bring DVD-Audio, DVD-Video, SACD and CD replay under one roof.
