In This Issue....
Three Shows, Two World Premiere Equipment Reviews And More!
Article By Steven R. Rochlin


  Well folks, we have a pretty packed issue if you love show reports and equipment reviews. You do like those, yes? Well, in this issue we have the enormous and important European High End event in Munich, snuck in a report on the Lone Star Audio Fest plus of course will be posting live from T.H.E. Show Newport Beach 2013. Now before I got to all the reviews, check out our new section called Dealer Perspective. Have you ever wondered what it take to be a high-end dealer, especially in these challenging and changing times? Well wonder no more as we hope to feature monthly articles from various industry insiders who tell it like it is. They are not just guys in a store, they are also brand ambassadors and Igor Kivritsky of Hi Fi Centre, Canada, chimes in this month.

Enjoy the Music.com Swag  Due to popular demand, Enjoy the Music.com has launched our Swag site with t-shirts, beer mugs, iPhone case, etc. Many people at the Munich show were very eager to see the now famous Steampunk glasses wearing editor in action. Going one better, we now offer you this iconic image for you to wear and enjoy!

In the Lifestyle & Design section even James Bond would love to get his hands on Aston Martin's 100th anniversary CC100 concept car and we’ll show you why. DJs, musicians and those who want to have fun creating retro-futuristic sounds must check out Nervous Squirrel’s Pyramid Synthesizers. They also double as a hand-painted work of functional electronica art!

For reviews we have the world premiere of AVM Audio's Evolution PA 3.2 preamplifier/tuner, CD 3.2 digital player and MA 3.2S monoblocks. As many know, going the full system approach has advantages and reviewer Brett Rudolph shows us the way. We also have a world premiere of the Metrum Octave MKII NOS DAC including their USB input option. Clive Meakins asks the question "Will this DAC be as highly acclaimed as its predecessor?". Those seeking a high-end preamplifier and DAC in a flavorful package should check out Tom Lyle’s review of the new Peachtree Audio novaPre. This is a relatively affordable, modern high-end digital preamplifier with asynchronous USB, internal ESS Sabre 192kHz/24-bit DAC plus unbalanced RCA analog inputs.

For those who are curious about what makes our equipment work, check out Grey Rollins’ article on capacitors and inductors. (Humor) Who knows, at some point in the future we just might have a test on it! And for music lovers, well, sit right back and read about Jimi Hendrix People, Hell and Angels on 200 gram vinyl! Claude Lemaire really digs deep to show you why this album is so special and a must-have for fans!

As always, in the end what really matters is that you...


Enjoy the Music,

Steven R. Rochlin
