Sneak Peek!
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.

The Hidden Effect Of Hi-Fi  How hi-fi re-kindled my love of listening to music!

The Hidden Effect Of Hi-Fi
How hi-fi re-kindled my love of listening to music!
Article By Emiko
Today For a long time, silence was my thing. Actually, no. Let me rephrase that. For a long time, non-musical sound was my thing. And that may seem weird for me to admit, considering I'm a recording artist, composer, and performer. But that's just it. That's exactly why silence and the non-musical sound was "my thing" for so long. I grew up in recording studios. From two-inch tape to ADAT, to DAT, to CDs to the advent of ProTools and everything else (I was using Digital Performer when it was just "Performer" and goodness, I remember when the VST in Cubase didn't exist), I was either tracking it or being tracked on it. And that meant countless hours of takes, more emotion, less emotion, more flourish, and having various producers saying things to me like....

Is It Fair to Fix It? Roger Skoff writes about getting the most enjoyment out of your system.

Is It Fair To Fix It?
Roger Skoff writes about getting the most enjoyment out of your system.
Article By Roger Skoff
It used to be that "Mid-Fi" audio gear could instantly be spotted by its abundance of "features" (knobs, dials, lights, controls, and functions, for whatever purpose) and that the cheaper it was, the more of such toys and goodies it was likely to have. "Serious" (high-end) audio gear tended to be exactly the opposite – the more you paid for it, the less it was likely to do. The best of high-end audio electronics often had no "bells and whistles" at all and, though usually offers very high performance, tended to be simple to the point of austerity. Tone controls were, of course, out of the question. So was any form of Fletcher-Munson "loudness" compensation, or, for phono use, such mid-fi commonplaces as "scratch" or "rumble" filtration.

Turntable Lab: 10 Questions For Peter Hahn

Turntable Lab: 10 Questions For Peter Hahn
Peter Hahn, owner And founder Of Turntable Lab in New York City, joins us for 10 questions about vinyl and the state of the industry.
Review By Ian White
If you shop for records, DJ equipment, HiFi equipment, or turntable accessories online, you've probably spent some time on the Turntable Lab website. After more than 20 years, the online retailer has a global customer base who love their selection of products, and value their expertise and customer service. As a customer, I've always been drawn to their music section that offers records you don't often see for sale on sites like Music Direct or Acoustic Sounds. Turntable Lab's Peter Hahn explains how the company started and offers up some thoughts on the future of vinyl.

RCA Celebrates Living Stereo In 1958 Music lovers welcome RCA's new stereo LP recordings.

RCA Celebrates Living Stereo In 1958
Music lovers welcome RCA's new stereo LP recordings.
RCA Victor announces their new line of new 2-in-1 Stereo Orthophonic High Fidelity Victrolas. Within this 1958 promotional film, they announce their new Living Stereo two-channel music system technology. This vintage "Living Stereo" video is a promotional film produced for the RCA Victor Corporation by the Jam Handy Organization. It's always interesting to look back at the history of recorded music and hear gentlemen like Bob Banks of RCA Victor saying stereo is "nothing short of a miracle". This "dramatically new technology"... living stereo, played on a vinyl LP record.

Understanding State-Of-The-Art Digital Room Correction Video By Mitch Barnett Of Accurate Sound

Understanding State-Of-The-Art Digital Room Correction
Video By Mitch Barnett Of Accurate Sound
Within this video, presented by Mitch Barnett of Accurate Sound, we take a deep dive into his presentation on the fundamentals of "proper" Digital Room Correction (DRC). This includes hands-on DSP FIR Filter Designer demos using Acourate and Audiolense. Having participated in many audio forum discussions, having watched online videos on Digital Room Correction (or DRC), and having reviewed over a dozen DRC products over the past 11 years, I have come to two conclusions. One is that there is considerable misunderstanding about DRC, how it works and even what problems DRC is trying to solve. And, just as important, understanding what is possible using the SOTA of DRC.

Kronos Discovery Turntable Review Drive-by reviewing at Long Valley.

North America Premiere Review!
Kronos Discovery Turntable

Drive-by reviewing at Long Valley.
Rick Becker Investigates A Treasured Turntable.
It was supposed to be a nearly five-hour trip but my wife missed a turn on the shortcut and took the Shooting Brake through an all-terrain parking lot to buy lunch at Subway. Then there were accidents on I-80 to slow us down. Nevertheless, Bill Parish was all smiles, as usual, when we pulled into GTT Audio to get a listen to Louis Desjardins' latest masterpiece, the Kronos Discovery turntable. Bill had sent me his GTT video newsletter with a pow-wow after David W. Robinson, Editor in Chief and Senior Writer Maurice Jeffries of Positive Feedback had spent an afternoon listening to the new turntable. Emails flew and Louis sent me a copy of Alan Sircom's review in HiFi+ magazine. I emailed Louis and told him I thought it was a very good review. He replied that he thought it was an Excellent!

Meitner Audio MA3 Integrated Hi-Res DAC Review

Meitner Audio MA3 Integrated Hi-Res DAC Review
Outstanding performance and value!
Review By Phil Gold
The industry is converging around integrated digital front ends – something to access streaming services such as Tidal, Qobuz, Spotify, Internet Radio as well as your own digital library and some offer a volume control. You may get analog inputs, maybe even a phono section for turntable fans, while some include a power amp stage. Today we are looking at a very special sample of this breed. First of all, who or what is Meitner Audio? Meitner Audio is the junior sibling of the reference class EMM Labs, based in Calgary, Canada. EMM Labs. It is named after Ed Meitner, as is EMM Labs (Ed's initials are EMM). For a DAC with variable output, the DV2, EMM Labs carries a list price of $30,000, and they also offer a streamer, the NS1, which lists for $4500. So that makes a total of $34,500 for a two box streaming DAC with volume control. What if I told you the MA3 Integrated D/A Converter was the exact equivalent of these two boxes for a total of $9500. Well, I'd be lying of course, or at the very least exaggerating. But I wouldn't be that far off the mark.

Living Sound Audio Discovery Warp 1 Stereo Amplifier Review

Living Sound Audio Discovery Warp 1 Stereo Amplifier Review
One of the best, if not the best, amplifiers in its price range… full stop.
Review By Gary Alan Barker
iving Sounds Audio (LSA) has really brought Class-D amplification to a new level with their epic LSA Discovery Warp 1 which is rated at 150 Watts per channel into 8Ω and 250 Watts into 4Ω, is stable down to 2Ω. Furthermore, the Warp 1 has a prodigious peak current output of 17 amps per channel. All of this power out of a small 14" wide x 10" deep x 3" high package with distortion as low as 0.0027% and a stunning 115dB Dynamic Range and -119dBV noise floor. As you can guess, when Walter Liederman of Underwood HiFi offered to ship me a review sample to test out, I jumped at the chance.

Bluesound Pulse Flex 2i And Pulse Mini 2i Review

Bluesound Pulse Flex 2i And Pulse Mini 2i
Early Takes
The Bluesound Pulse Flex 2i and Pulse Mini 2i are already proving to be worthy alternatives to the Sonos One SL system in my kitchen.
Review By Ian White
When One of the most frequently asked questions that I receive involves my opinion on the best affordable wireless loudspeakers. Most people don't know that they're being slightly annoying when they ask it — because they already know what the answer is in their head and I'm apparently just there for validation. Everyone assumes that I going to say something like the Sonos One SL. Much to their dismay this Chanukah, I'm going to suggest the Bluesound Pulse Flex 2i or Pulse Mini 2i instead.

Wells Audio Cipher DAC Review

Wells Audio Cipher DAC Review
Excellent subjective performance, great imaging, plus superb detail!
Review By Sam Rosen
My journey in high end audio started with Digital to Analog converters (DACs). The first piece of audio gear I bought was a Yulong D100 DAC/Headphone amplifier. Since then I have listened to 30+ different high end DACs ranging from $100 to $25,000+. During this process, I discovered that my personal tastes lean towards DACs that are neutral or neutral warm. It is rare that I want components in my system to be truly neutral. Typically, I like warmer sounding systems. I like things that make your toes tap, and while neutral is good, I also tend to find neutral boring.

Synergistic Research Ethernet Switch UEF, Foundation Ethernet Cable, Active Ground Block SE, And Purple Fuses Review

World Premiere Review!
Synergistic Research Ethernet Switch UEF, Foundation Ethernet Cable, Active Ground Block SE, And Purple Fuses Review
Speed dating into the world of streaming and beyond....
Review By Rick Becker
Andy Wiederspahn at Synergistic Research knows I'm Old School but offered to send me one of their new Ethernet Switch UEF and Foundation Ethernet cables. He knows I'm a fanboy of Synergistic, but also a fairboy when it comes to reviewing. I assured him I could lean on my good audio buddy, Tom Lathrop, to help me out with breaking it all in and providing an evening of critical listening. This wasn't going to be a long critical review spanning dozens of musical genres from various music providers. Nope, it was going to be the reviewing equivalent of speed dating. Tom was educated as an electrical engineer, so he was skeptical that an Ethernet switch could make a huge difference. But he is also an audiophile with a dedicated room and a pretty good system.

High Fidelity Cables MC-1 Pro Double Helix Plus Signature Power Conditioner Review

World Premiere Review!
High Fidelity Cables MC-1 Pro Double Helix Plus Signature Power Conditioner Review

The importance of good power for your components should not be underestimated.
Review By Rick Becker
First of all, it's not what you think. It's not a box that conditions your power and has outlets to plug all your gear into. Homeland Security would undoubtedly open your suitcase and take a close look at it if you tried to board a plane. It's a plug-in conditioner that looks like a tactical weapon James Bond might keep handy for blowing up cars or helicopters. I found it works best when plugged into a power strip or into the duplex outlet that your power strip is also plugged into. Rick Schultz was interested in having me review some of his other products after the rave review of his NPS-1260 3D contact enhancer — a spectacular tweak that improved the transparency, resolution, and dynamics of my system. While NPS is related to High Fidelity's other products, their major innovation is their Magnetic Conduction technology that drives the flow of current to the center of a cable, thereby reducing or eliminating the skin effect typical cables have on the music signal.

ampsandsound Bryce Monos Amplifier Review

ampsandsound Bryce Monos Amplifier Review
Getting the most out of 12 Watts.
Review By Sam Rosen
Justin Weber, the owner of ampsandsound, has been on a roll lately. 2021 has been a big year for him. He introduced two new headphone amplifiers (The Rockwell, and the Agartha), had two of his products put on the 2021 Stereophile recommended component list, and introduced a new set of mono block speaker amplifiers known as the Bryce Monos. In today's review, we are going to talk about the Bryce Monos, which are in my opinion, the ultimate expression of Justin's single-ended work. In the headphone world, ampsandsound has built a niche as a high performance tube amp manufacturer. Its products, like the Bigger Ben and the Kenzie, are well known quantities in high end headphone circles. However, ampsandsound's best kept secret is its speaker amps.

Audeze LCD-5 Flagship Headphones Review

Audeze LCD-5 Flagship Headphones Review
As good as it gets!
Review By Peter Pialis
I have been a big fan of Audeze's headphones throughout the years. Since their initial release of the venerable LCD-2 over a decade ago, Audeze has become a world leader in planar magnetic technology and has produced some of the very best headphones on the planet. Well, never to let the grass grow under their feet, the engineers at Audeze have certainly been quite busy this past year with three significant new releases: LCD-R (ribbon-based headphones, and CRBN Electrostatic (their first foray into electro-static headphones), the LCD-5's round out this amazing trifecta of great new products. The original LCD-2's wowed the world of personal audio with truly some of the best performing headphones ever released a decade ago. Their relaxed and natural tone was a stark contrast to the many brighter sounding headphones previously released like the AKG K701, Beyerdynamic T1 and Sennheiser HD800.

Topping D30Pro DAC & A30Pro Headphone Amplifier Review

Topping D30Pro DAC & A30Pro Headphone Amplifier Review
The desktop DAC/headphone amplifier category is getting very crowded and competitive.
Review By W. Jennings
Let's have a conversation about Topping. A quick Google search reveals a lot of strong opinions about the brand; most of them are quite positive but there's a lot more to the story. Topping have proven to be a formidable brand in the desktop audio category and products like the Topping D30Pro DAC and A30Pro Headphone Amplifier are selling faster than they can produce them. The brand has made some great products of late and seems to specialize in building DACs and amplifiers with ridiculously low noise levels. The measurements of recent models have been so impressive that most analyzers cannot directly measure the THD+N without using a secondary amplifier and dividing the results by the amplification factor of that secondary.

Dayton Audio OmniMic V2 Precision Measurement System

Dayton Audio OmniMic V2 Precision Measurement System
Speaker measurement made easy.
Article By Jeff Poth
As a speaker designer, getting high resolution measurements has always been an issue for me. I have done a variety of measurements and evaluation methods, ranging from listening only to utilization of RTA based measurement (I used a Behringer 8024 and the 2496 equalizer to perform RTA functions with pink noise), impedance testing, and a variety of others as appropriate, but I never got over the hump of getting proper software, calibrated microphone, microphone preamplifier and having measurements that could be published. I could get a very solid idea of how a device was performing, but only publish graphically if I plotted points manually, and was limited when it came to what resolution I could measure at (which allows for much finer tuning of a device). Given my role as a DIY audio writer here at Enjoy the Music.com, this had to change; enter the Dayton Audio OmniMic V2 Precision Measurement System ($399.99) – an all-in-one software and calibrated USB microphone package.

The Into By Art Dudley Of Listener Magazine

The Intro
Editorial By Art Dudley
Apart from reminding Listener's readers how seldom I have been arrested compared to George W. Bush (the score stands at "zero" to "three that we know of"), I vow to keep the following observations as non-political as I can. Today's concern goes to the heart of our hobby. Specifically, what should we, as audiophiles, be doing with our hi-fi gear? Should we use our stereos to lay bare every nuance of sound on our recordings, as faithfully and thoroughly as technology allows? Or should we use them as we would a drug, to achieve a musical bliss-out whenever the fancy strikes us? And: Is it acceptable for us to even think of these as separate goals? The old musical kicks-vs.-fidelity to the master tape argument has been around longer than Goldie Hawn, and it gets trotted out at least every other week on the various internet hi-fi forums.

At The Edge Of Science The sonic explorations of Kondo-san. Article By Joe Roberts

At The Edge Of Science
The sonic explorations of Kondo-san.
Article By Joe Roberts
Audio experimenters have uncovered many gaps in the models textbook science brings to bear on electro-acoustical phenomena. This can be a source of bafflement and embarrassment to authorities in the field, but our ears have proven their value as a most subtle evaluation device - one which hears things that can't be there. Many scientists take the comfortable and logical way out and deny the possibility of unmeasurable "new" audio phenomena. For example, in the Spring 1991 issue of The Skeptical Inquirer, Fred E. Davis gave us "Hi-Fi Audio Pseudoscience," an article committing cables, AC cords and conditioners, CD treatments, and novel uses for digital clocks to the shady realms of mysticism and the powers of suggestion. He doesn't claim to have done much listening. Surely not worth the trouble based on mathematical models. Yet most of this study was based on "skimming through three or four audio magazines." Very rigorous method indeed!

Triophoni: Triode Triumph

Triophoni: Triode Triumph
Article By Dan Schmalle From VALVE
This month I will take the opportunity to show off a little (Oh brother, not again...). I have today been putting the finishing touches on my latest amp project, a pair of triode output power amps called Triophoni. Since I spent a fair amount of time writing up a blurb to advertise them I will use excerpts from said blurb to describe them: 6CK4 cathode type triode valves operate class AB1 push-pull as the output tube. This tube exhibits low drive and plate voltage requirements, allowing for fewer drive stages than the typical triode amplifier, helping to reduce phase shift. A triode's transfer curve is more linear than that of a pentode. This helps minimize amplitude, harmonic and phase distortion, resulting in the incomparable triode sound.

How To Do A Comparative Listening Test Article By Cookie Marenco Of Blue Coast Records And Music

How To Do A Comparative Listening Test
Article By Cookie Marenco Of Blue Coast Records And Music
Setting up a listening test to compare various types of files is not easy. You need a base of equipment and a trusted set of files to start. Set aside several hours and have a few people involved. We rarely do a test with fewer than three people. Here we'll explore some of the basics steps to compare files. Keep in mind, the objective is to determine differences in formats, cables, devices, conversion tools, etc. You don't need to like the music. The question is "do you hear a difference". That difference might be insignificant, but if it repeatedly appears, then there is a difference.

The Long View: When you audition a component, you're actually judging a complete system. Article By David Schwartz, Member Of Gotham Audio

The Long View
When you audition a component, you're actually judging a complete system.
Article By David Schwartz, Member Of Gotham Audio
I attended my first audio show in 1957, in the days of mono. As a teenager interested in electronics, I discovered High Fidelity just about the time that my disillusionment with ham radio set in. A friend invited me to hear his father's hi-fi system. All I can remember of that day was the sound of that big five foot tall speaker system in the corner of his living room. Never had I heard anything that sounded so real. I was hooked. Over the last sixty some odd years, I have been involved in audio as a consumer, audiophile society president and small retailer. Needless to say, much has changed since those early days. In future columns, I plan to describe these changes, revisit assumptions made as well as evaluate their effect on the audio world of today.

Digital Amplifier Company MEGAschino MK2 Mono Amplifiers Review

Digital Amplifier Company MEGAschino MK2 Mono Amps Review
Magnificent monoblocks from Tommy O'Brien.
Review By Rick Jensen
I have been a tube guy all my life since I bought and built a Dynaco SCA-35 with money from my paper route at age 14. That said, I've owned some fine solid-state amps and preamps over the years – a Phase Linear 700, the Quatre DG-250 (mine didn't blow up on me, but did when my brother-in-law took it to college), an Aragon 4004, and several lesser lights. But normally, my system has been tube-based; conrad-johnson preamplification and Music Reference amplification for most of the last two decades. I've reviewed and/or had in the home for extended periods some very fine non-tube amps, too, from Linn, Mark Levinson, conrad-johnson, and more.

Fallbrook Audio TR-1 Turntable Review

World Premiere Review!
Fallbrook Audio TR-1 Turntable Review

The affordable Fallbrook TR-1 vinyl spinner made in California.
Review By Ron Nagle
As I write this the TR-1 is selling with an introductory price of $649 that represents a $100 savings over the normal price of $749. Along with that, there is an optional dust cover temporarily priced at $100. I would strongly advise getting that dust cover, it will make your TR-1 table cat-proof. The Fallbrook people tell us the turntable is, "proudly hand-assembled with many locally sourced parts." Now I'm not certain what that involves. Let us step back a bit and take a broad look at the vinyl player market. There are some affordable turntables in the market place. To introduce a new and affordable turntable at this point is most certainly a venture that represents a bold move.

What are they, and how can they help you to feel good?
Article By Becky Pell
We humans have a range of different brain wave states and speeds, each relating to a different state of consciousness, be it waking, sleeping, or somewhere in between. Binaural beats are a phenomenon whereby we can voluntarily create different brain waves using external sound sources, thereby inducing the associated mental state. First, let's take a look at the different states of consciousness which we most commonly experience.
