Rick Becker's Holiday Gift Guide 2021
The Elite 8
Eight special holiday gifts for audiophiles.
Article By Rick Becker
One of my biggest pleasures of the year is
to look back at the products I've reviewed or seen at shows and make
suggestions for Holiday Gifts for your beloved audiophile.
Unfortunately, some of these require special knowledge or data such as
the size and value of fuses, so they won't qualify as surprise gifts but
I strongly believe they will be treasured nonetheless.

Are Your Ears Good Enough?
Roger Skoff answers the question.
By Roger Skoff
recently wrote within one of the Facebook audiophile groups to ask if, before
going to all the effort and expense of putting together a good high-end audio
system, people ought to have their ears checked to find out if they can hear
well enough to make it worthwhile. Does that sound reasonable to you? Another thing about ears and hearing that's
happened to me more times than I can count, and that I suspect has probably
happened to you, too, is that I've mentioned – or even played – a
recording or some hi-fi product or even a full audio system to a non-audiophile
friend, and had him tell me something like " I'm sure that's fine for you, a
golden-eared hi-fi buff, but I'm just an ordinary person, so I (whichever the
case may be) didn't / couldn't / probably wouldn't hear the difference."

Primus Inter Pares:
Audionet's Category Smashing HUMBOLDT Integrated Amplifier Review
First amongst equals.
Review By Maurice Jeffries
If review beginnings also function as narrative endings, let
me begin this review with a simple summative declaration: Audionet's stunning
HUMBOLDT integrated amplifier re-imagines from the ground up how to design a
modern integrated amplifier and recalibrates our expectations of what such a
device can deliver musically. Boasting unparalleled build quality, a superb set
of user interface features, and transformative sound quality, this
super-integrated argues without equivocation that the best single-box amp-preamp
solutions need not compromise on sound quality compared to similarly priced
separates. In the universe of expensive integrated amplifiers, HUMBOLDT sits
amongst its peers as a primus inter pares device of extraordinary

Naim Audio Solstice Turntable System Review
A great turntable package!
Review By Alan Sircom
little strange that for all its importance in vinyl replay over its first 48
years as a manufacturer, Naim Audio has never made a turntable. Sure, there have
been power supplies, phono stages, and even the Aro tonearm, and yes... a
heavily modified turntable or two were bounced around the Salisbury-based
company's 'skunkworks'. But a company that was one of the two defining vinyl
brands for more than a generation of music lovers never made a turntable; until
the Summer of 2021. Solstice is that first complete turntable from Naim Audio, a
500 turntable run special edition turn-key package launched – as befits the
name – on the Summer Solstice (Naim's Salisbury HQ is precisely 2.5 metric
Druids from Stonehenge, and sometimes that rubs off in moments of uncontrollable
