dCS Bartok DAC / HeadAmp
For Headphones And Stereo Systems
Allowing you to hear music your way, plus make it fresh and exciting!
Review By Frank Iacone Of Headphone.Guru
The dCS Bartók network DAC with headphone amp brings the rarified air of true "State-of-the-Art" to personal audio.
Digital audio started in the early 1980s when Sony and Philips introduced the world's first CD players. The marketing campaigns describe the sound
of CD recordings as being perfect and the end-all for music delivery with its compact size. Sony marketed it as " perfect sound forever".

Art Audio Quartet Tube Monoblock Amplifiers
3D sound staging and sense of scale that will capture your heart!
Dr. Michael Bump
mono blocks are among a varied line-up of top-shelf SET and Push-Pull amplifiers
designed by master artisan-engineer, Tom Willis. Well-respected as one of the
top valve designers in the UK, Tom established Art Audio in 1988. Along with a
team of like-minded craftsmen, including long time friend, Chris Lucas, the
company moved forward with the singular vision of maximizing the inherent
musical qualities of traditional tube designs.
Kimber Kable Carbon 8 Interconnects,
Carbon 18 XL Speaker Cables, Ascent Power Cables,
And Select Copper USB Cable
Mega-transparent, plus satisfying every other trait one would expect.
Review By Tom Lyle
said that the best way to test audio cable is to rewire one's entire system with
that brand or model. This way one will be able to hear the difference in sound
quality with any influence from other types of cable, and truly hear its
affects. Kimber Kable (not a typo, Kimber likes to replace the "C" in cable with
a "K") is one of the only brands of cable that I have found where I could
replace once interconnect in my system, and hear a very distinct improvement of
the sound of my system due to this one cable change.
Manley Labs Absolute Headphone Amplifier / Preamplifier
Manley creates a Masterpiece that looks and sounds like nothing else!
Review By Dave Hanson
I had the pleasure of meeting Manley Labs VP of Engineering and Design, Zia
in the CanJam exhibit at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2018. While I was more than
familiar with the Manley name, this was the first time I had seen them in the
personal audio section of the show, so naturally I was quite curious about their
debuting flagship headphone amplifier, the Manley Labs Absolute Headphone
Amplifier ($4500). Zia was very generous with his time, and walked me through
the devastating and inspiring story behind the amplifier's creation.

entanglement in Cardas Clear loudspeaker cables.
Michael Zisserson Of Positive Feedback
Cables are a source of much
contention in our epic. So much so that some publications seem afraid to discuss
them anymore. YouTubers will show you a coat hanger that somehow out-performs,
or at least equals, Monster Cable. Devout subscribers to the esoteric could chew
an ear for hours, pontificating that cables are all that matters in an
