The Most Expensive Component It's not what you think it is but what you think it is. Article By Roger Skoff

The Most Expensive Component
It's not what you think it is but what you think it is.
Article By Roger Skoff
What would you say if I told you that the most expensive thing about your system might not be what you think it is? No, I'm not thinking of your listening room, although, from a physical standpoint, that might certainly be true, and it might even be the subject of some future article. It's not your collection of records, CDs, and master tapes, either, even though that, too, might at one time have been the case. Instead, for altogether too many people (not you and I, of course) the most expensive thing about their system is one or more of the mistaken assumptions they might have made in putting it together. Many years ago I had the opportunity to visit the home of a wealthy audiophile who had a great love of music and an essentially unlimited budget for a system to play it on. His entire home was designed around his sound room, which was HUGE – probably 25 or so feet wide by 40 or 50 feet long, with a flat ceiling that must have been at least ten or twelve feet high.

Avantgarde Acoustic UNO SD Hornspeakers Review The luckiest I've ever felt was when reviewing the UNO SD speakers. Review By Tom Lyle

Avantgarde Acoustic UNO SD Hornspeaker Review
The luckiest I've ever felt was when reviewing the UNO SD speakers.
Review By Tom Lyle
In the mid to late 1990s, I heard a pair of Avantgarde Acoustic horn loudspeakers (hornspeaker) for the first time at a local high-end audio showroom. I don't remember the model of the speakers I was hearing, but I do recall that they were powered by a pair of Single-Ended Triode (SET) monoblock amplifiers. I assumed that these amps were a perfect match for these sensitive speakers. Sadly, I was not impressed with what I heard that day. The speaker's biggest sin was an exaggerated midrange, epitomizing the "cupped hands" sound. Fast-forward to 2024, when I was offered a pair of Avantgarde UNO SDs for review in Enjoy the Music.com. I was skeptical, fearing I would experience something similar to what I had heard at that local dealer many years ago. Before these speakers arrived, I shared my experience with Avantgarde's North American distributor, American Sound of Canada, about my experience with their horn speakers.

AGD Productions DUET GaN-Power Monoblock Amplifier Review Defining your artistic sensibilities. Review By Dr. Michael Bump

AGD DUET GaN-Power Monoblock Amplifier Review
Defining your artistic sensibilities.
Review By Dr. Michael Bump
Professional musicians have a first love, and it's usually not their mother or high school sweetheart, but rather the instruments they surround themselves with throughout their lives. Sometimes this serves a nostalgic purpose, though in most cases, it is because the instrument's sound defines them (The Harry Potter analogy of "the wand chooses you" comes to mind). Theirs is a uniquely personal relationship. We all identify John "Bonzo" Bonham through his style of drumming and the sound of his Ludwig drum kit. The size, tuning, shell material, cymbals, use of timpani, etc. were his calling card, inspiring his touch / gesture, helping define him, and in turn, helping define Led Zeppelin. For almost his entire career, Pablo Casals performed on but a single instrument – a cello crafted around 1700 by the Venetian luthier, Matteo Gofriller. And of course, who can imagine listening to Willy Nelson's music without the voice of "Trigger," his faithful Martin N-20 nylon-string guitar, on which he's been performing and recording for over 55 years.

Eminent Technology LFT8c Floorstanding Loudspeaker Review Dipole done well. Review By Jules Coleman

Eminent Technology LFT8c Loudspeaker Review
Dipole done well.
Review By Jules Coleman
If you are not familiar with Bruce Thigpen, it's time you were. Bruce has been among the more creative and innovative designers in the audio industry over the past forty years. He began his career by working on what was to become the Infinity turntable, which he followed with the classic and much-admired ET 2 linear tracking tonearm (parts and updates are still available for the model 1, ET-2 and ET- 2.5), before turning his attention to magnetic planar loudspeakers. Beginning with the full-range planar LFT3, he ultimately shifted focus to hybrid designs featuring planar mid and high-frequency drivers mated with traditional cone drivers to handle the lower frequencies. The shift in focus led to the development of the LFT-8 introduced in 1989 and then widely distributed beginning in 1990, the transformative version of which, LFT-8c, is the subject of this review.

Vinshine Audio Denafrips Arce Hi-Res Music Streamer Review Streams music without obstructions or interfering with your favorite tunes. Review By Neven Kos Of HiFiMedia

Vinshine Audio Denafrips Arce Hi-Res Music Streamer Review
Streams music without obstructions or interfering with your favorite tunes.
Review By Neven Kos Of HiFiMedia
After Alvin Chee, the owner of the company Vinshine Audio, searched for the past year and a half on his YouTube channel for the best streamer for Denafrips D/A converters, Denafrips introduced its music streamer called Arce (twin sister of the rainbow goddess Iris in Greek mythology). The primary focus in the design of this streamer was the quality of playback, so at Denafrips they developed their computer platform instead of resorting to existing ones, such as PC platform, Raspberry Pi, or something else already existing. The computer part of the streamer is based on the Quad-Core ARM Cortex processor, high-precision oscillators, and a power supply built after the 60VA toroidal transformer. There are also low-noise and fast linear regulators, and unlike many others that resort to existing and available solutions or use standard computer solutions and operating systems, Denafrips has also developed its operating system optimized precisely for music playback.

American Sound Showcases A Lovely International Lineup
A global grand tour of audio excellence!
Florida International Audio Expo 2024 Show Report By Steven R. Rochlin
When the Tampa show first began, the word 'International' was not within the name. Thankfully, the show promoters quickly realized the error of their ways. This year at the Florida International Audio Expo 2024 were products from many different countries. Perhaps no single room better showcased this than retailer and distributor American Sound Of Canada with great gal Angie at the helm. Before I post a gear list, let's have fun and see a country list first: dCS United Kingdom, Oracle Audio Technologies Canada, Phasemation Japan, Avantgarde Acoustic Germany, Transparent Cables USA. To my ears, there's something about highly efficient hornspeakers that showcase immediacy, speed, and exceptional dynamic swings from whisper quiet to the guy blown away in the Maxell commercial.

AGD The Audion GaNTube Monoblocks Review

AGD "The Audion" GaNTube Monoblocks Review
Class D reaches the upper echelon of high-end audio.
Review By Rick Becker
Back at the turn of the millennium you could put together a pretty good audio system for $10,000, and you could listen to many of those components in a local brick & mortar store if you lived in a decent size city. Sure there was some stratospherically priced gear in the $10,000 to $20,000 range you might be able to see if you went to one of the audio shows on the left or right coasts. Then along came "quantitative easing" and the internet. Gear got more expensive, the brick & mortar landscape eroded and major as well as regional audio shows proliferated. Eventually, higher prices seemed to have attracted more well-heeled patrons to the hobby, not unlike what happened to the bicycle industry a generation or two earlier.

Pass Labs INT-25 Stereo Integrated Amplifier Review

Pass Labs INT-25 Stereo Integrated Amplifier Review
The most musical amplifier I've had the opportunity to listen to.
Review By Neven Kos of hifimedia magazine
It's been a while since I've had an opportunity to listen to some of the Pass amps officially. The last one was, if memory does serve me, an integrated INT-30 amplifier, a review you had the opportunity to read in this magazine (No. 81 / 2010). My experience with Pass Labs amps is not extensive, but it may be relevant. Before that integrated amplifier in my listening room I enjoyed my own amps over the years, such as integrated amplifier INT-150, power amp x150.5, preamplifier X1 and Aleph P. Either loaned to me, or through other familiar listening rooms, I also had the opportunity to listen to X250, X 250.5, X350, X600, X150, Aleph 3 and Aleph 5. As you can see from the above, there is a certain historical void in my acquaintance with Pass, which we will try to fill in by listening to and learning about the latest Pass Labs toy, the Pass INT-25 integrated amplifier.

The Wow Factor Thanks To Wells Audio
Jeff's journey in high-performance audio is impressive.
Florida International Audio Expo 2024 Show Report By Steven R. Rochlin
One of the many stories I love telling is when first meeting Jeff Wells. It started at his small table booth at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest where he was showing his new tube amplifier. There was something about it that spoke to me, as I could see the passion and attention to detail. When asking to see the internal wiring, many manufacturers hem and haw, perhaps they don't have the tools with them or ????  Upon asking Jeff to see the internals, he happily turned the unit over, removed the bottom plate, and there is where I saw a precise layout, technically correct placement (keeping signal wiring away from power), and the internal wiring was attractive too (in a good way we technicians and solder jockeys can appreciate).

A love of art and a passion for music!
Florida International Audio Expo 2024 Show Report By Steven R. Rochlin
We've all seen the black and silver boxes, perhaps they were bestowed wooden side panels and the like to make them more attractive. Now what if, and am just saying someone who is a true artist in the world of visual styling and sonic perfection decided to create a brand? Mr. Kostas Metaxas' audio products Metaxas & Sins truly deliver inspiring stylistic designs with a sense of humanity. His products would look exceptional within the most modern luxury homes... and the Museum of Modern Art. For those unfamiliar, Kostas Metaxas is a multi-award earning designer and artist, plus his deep passion for music means he is an electrical and recording engineer too. Kostas' incredible Tourbillon RX (T-RX) reel-to-reel magnetic tape recorder / player is an excellent example of his passion for achieving the very best sound fidelity and build quality.

Florida International Audio Expo 2024 Show Report By Steven R. Rochlin
Will cut to the chase right up front and say that many attendees I spoke with had very high praise for Alberto Guerra's AGD exhibit room during the Florida International Audio Expo 2024. AGD's very innovative use of GaN technology was on full display, both sight and sound. Alberto's passion for both music and electrical engineering is what brought him to create AGD Productions, and in Tampa his featured products that earned many awards over the years were on full display. The GaN transistor-based tubes are the star of their amplification products, and while I could type detail after details about them....

Live Nation Reports All-Time Highs For Concert Attendance
With attendance, ticket sales, and sponsorship activity at or near all-time highs, concert attendance for 2023 as compared to 2022 is up 20% to over 145 million fans. This figure spans more than 50,000 events, with 50% more international acts in top 50 tours, plus there are 15% more touring shows on average too. Furthermore, revenue is up as spending on hospitality has achieved double-digit growth, with fan spending up across all major venue types – amphitheaters, festivals, clubs, and theaters. Of course ticket sales have experienced a gross transaction value (GTV) that is up 30% to nearly $36 billion.

Live Nation says they are "the largest supporter of artists: Investment in artists up over 40% to over $13 billion. Promoting more artists at every level from clubs to stadiums, with nearly 7,000 touring artists in 40+ countries. Paid out $1,500 nightly bonuses and 100% merchandise profits to over 3,000 developing artists through our On The Road Again program, which has extended to 2024." Lastly, there is an impressive fan growth of 20% led by International markets up 25%, with North America up an impressive 17%. Stadium shows led attendance growth with over 29 million fans globally, up 60%. While many complain about ticket pricing, especially within the secondary market, there are a wide variety of price points with two-thirds of USA concert tickets under $100 and one-third under $50. Live Nation says, "Average secondary ticket price roughly 2x primary, showing that tickets remain priced below market value."

Suncoast Audio's Sensational Rooms At FIAE 2024
True reference gear with Clarisys Audio, VAC, MSB, and an MBL room too!
Florida International Audio Expo 2024 Show Report By Steven R. Rochlin
As with virtually all shows, the local dealers come out strong to showcase their best gear and the FIAE 2024 was no exception. Suncoast Audio, based in Sarasota (FL), featured one room with MBL gear and assorted components while the other contained the Clarisys Audio Auditorium speakers, VAC amplification, MSB digital gear, etc. Since there's been a lot of cyberink about the MBLs, and most know of their excellent products, I'm going to focus on the Clarisys Audio room. Doing a double-take as the Clarisys Audio Auditorium speakers are quite large at 76" high and 36" wide, yet are only 4.3 inches deep. Why so thin? Because they use a custom-made and very special ribbon / panel driver that uses very strong neodymium magnets and a double-sided bass panel. This very strong magnetic field ensures a precise reaction from your amplification while ensuring the load is within about 6 Ohms.

A great gear combo for your listening pleasures.
Florida International Audio Expo 2024 Show Report By Steven R. Rochlin
Back in July 2021, Enjoy the Music.com's Rick Becker reviewed the MC Audiotech Forty-10 floorstanding loudspeaker and said, "it is for the discerning music lover who is not afraid to think outside the box and seek out the unique as well as the very enjoyable." Here at the Florida International Audio Expo 2024, the company was showcasing a different model, the MC Audiotech TL-12. As a visually more normal style of loudspeaker, the T-12 features the company's wide band line source drivers mated with a 12" transmission line woofer. Operating as a dipole from 300 Hz to 20 kHz, the overall frequency response is from 28 Hz to 20 kHz, has a sensitivity of 93dB/W/m, and presents a nice 8 Ohm non-reactive load to your amplification. The great news is that 70 watts should easily bring high volume levels to all but the largest rooms.

Coax Highs And Deep Bass Thanks To SubDrum When is a drum not a drum? When it's a loudspeaker.

Coax Highs And Deep Bass Thanks To SubDrum
When is a drum not a drum? When it's a loudspeaker.
Florida International Audio Expo 2024 Show Report By Steven R. Rochlin
Here's something you don't see every day, drums and loudspeaker driver enclosures. The SubDrum is said to be an all-in-one sound system. You use a coax driver (tweeter and midrange) within the drum tom toms, and a woofer within the bass drum. A just like that, you have a satellite and subwoofer system of sorts. As a compact and complete all-in-one sound system, the SubDrum system attached speaker drives to drum heads, and then tightens the head a lot to keep it taunt. The float-in-head driver suspension 'technology' claims to "virtually eliminate cabinet resonance distortion". Produced from a single 22" wooden bass drum, their sound system is a single-point source for right and left channels as they mate an 18" rear-firing subwoofer with a pair of forward-firing 8" KOAX stereo drivers with integrated 1" silk dome tweeters.

For those of you reading this who, for some reason, didn't attend this year's incredible Florida International Audio Expo 2024, the Acora Acoustics, LampozatOr, and VAC room was within the largest room at the event. It was impossible to miss since the bar area, live music, and smoking area all are within the same second-floor area. From the Thursday night party, which is sponsored by Enjoy the Music.com as are all major industry-operated events within the USA and Canada, you could walk into the Acora Acoustics and VAC room and enjoy the most expansive sound within the show! Acora's floorstanding loud speakers, seen here in Sunset Fire granite, stole the show. My Muse / wife Heather said they were the very best-looking speakers, and she saw virtually every room at the event too.

Yes, the very famous words by none other than the original Willy Wonka, a movie-famous chocolatier who single-handedly saved a society. Mr. Wonka was quite the eccentric inventor, a man who demanded only the very best... including using a waterfall to mix and churn his chocolate. What does any of this have to do with Audio Note UK? Many within the industry have known Peter Qvortrup for decades; he is without a doubt a sensational showman. Peter is also the man who decades ago placed ads within print magazines with so many tweak / custom parts and bits that the text was nearly unreadable! Hand-wound silver transformers, Black Gate capacitors, non-magnetic Tantalum silver resistors.... The list read like Parts Porn for us solder-jockeys back in the day. It's like you'd call to buy an Oto SE and wind up buying an Audio Note Ongaku. How does something like that happen? Well, let me tell you....

Florida International Audio Expo 2024 Show Report By Steven R. Rochlin
It's always a joy to chat with Oz Turan during shows. His endless enthusiasm and deep love for music shine warmly, and am sure everyone who visited his room experienced this too. There's always another song to play, something new to discover, and of course hours of listening pleasure during the Florida International Audio Expo 2024. Stopped into his room a few times during the show as the sound was very, very impressive. During shows, I like to 'sneak into' rooms and first want to thank show attendees for putting up with me coming in and taking pics, etc. As much as I try to be 'invisible', take pics fast, and get out of everyone's way. Sometimes I do find myself apologizing for my photo efforts that 'block' a speaker or ???  With that said, am so glad I took extra moments to revisit as the music was very engaging.

Weeks before the Florida International Audio Expo, PureAudioProject owner and brilliant audio engineer Ze'ev Schlik teased me with sneak peek pics of his new Trio10 open baffle loudspeaker. Celebrating their 10th anniversary, with this new design comes the implementation of the highly-regarded Heil AMT (Air Motion Transformer) tweeter. This tweeter is known for its incredible speed and transparency, with amazing sound that is silky smooth to the very top frequency range. The main speaker chassis for all drivers is extremely rigid, with the lower section of their well-reviewed Quintet10 loudspeaker design, yet at the top is the new AMT implementation. A pair of specially- modified Morel 10" midrange/bass drivers handle the lowermost frequencies.

Surprises At The Florida International Audio Expo 2024
Music can open up the heart and soul.
FIAE 2024 Show Report Part 2 By Bill Hanson
As I alluded to within Part 1 of my FIAE 2024 report, audio shows can be overwhelming. Many of us have seen pics, read reviews, and perhaps even watched YouTube videos. Yet walking the halls, hearing each sound system we dreamt about, plus talking with designers too, it takes shows to a different level. With this being my first high-performance audio show in a few decades, there were times it was difficult to try to be objective and not just feel like a four-year-old in a candy store. There was a comfort in finding out I wasn't the only one as I had a gentleman come up to me and ask me questions about how to act at the show. It was his very first show like this of any kind and was worried he'd be too excited. I had hoped I would cross paths with him and find out what he thought, but it wasn't meant to be.

Florida International Audio Expo 2024 Show Report By Steven R. Rochlin
Virtually everyone within the industry knows Wynn Wong. Always a good word, a smile, plus Wynn is extremely passionate about music. On a personal note, he's also into horology (that means timepieces, or for your Floridians out there, wristwatches). Am a proud member of the NAWCC and AHCI too, and if you happen to be into horology go check them out and join. So where were we? Oh yeah, the fun-filled Tampa show. Based in Canada, Wynn Audio is both a retailer and an outstanding distributor. Founded in 2011 by Wynn Wong, his love for music and audio... and being both a retailer and distributor since 2011 proves he is truly 'one of us'. Have a look at the brands here and you'll see this is not your typical one-and-done kinda music lovers. The gear within his FIAE 2024 exhibition room includes gear made in Germany, Serbia, France, Spain, Sweden, and the USA.

Florida International Audio Expo 2024 Show Report By Steven R. Rochlin
The great folks at Playback Distribution were at the Florida International Audio Expo 2024 showcasing a wide variety of brands they offer. Taking a peek at their website, they say, "Our mission is to enrich the lives of entertainment enthusiasts by providing them with unparalleled access to state-of-the-art playback systems. We are dedicated to elevating the way customers experience their favorite content." That's indeed something we can all agree upon. As I kept reading, they talk about passion and taking joy in the very finest playback solutions available. Once again something we can all aspire to. It was also wonderful to see Founder and CEO Anssi Hyvönen at the Tampa show. I've known Anssi for decades while reporting on the shows in Germany. Great gentleman and always smiling when music fills the room.

Wait a minute here, what did the page title say again? Hmmmm.... Moving right along with show coverage, during the Florida International Audio Fest 2024 it's always a pleasure to chat with the good folks at Endow Audio. It's a pleasure to see David and Tim Strunk's deep passion for music, it is a big factor in achieving longevity within the high-performance audio community. With David Strunk's vision as Chief Technology Officer and Tim Strunk as Chief Executive Officer with 30+ years of experience, this two-for team had two fabulous exhibit rooms at FIAE 2024. Am sure after you've seen the pic above you quickly notice there's something very special about Endow Audio's loudspeakers. The drivers are not only in their normal location, yet by adding audio girth with an array of drivers around the horn, their patent-pending Point Array speaker technology seeks to reveal even the most subtle sound.

Passion, Joy, And Music In Tampa Fine sounds at the Florida International Audio Expo 2024. FIAE 2024 Show Report Part 1 By Bill Hanson

Passion, Joy, And Music In Tampa
Fine sounds at the Florida International Audio Expo 2024.
FIAE 2024 Show Report Part 1 By Bill Hanson
IIt is easy to get distracted by the equipment at an audio show. Being my first show in several decades it was a bit overwhelming at times. Yet what is really at the heart of these shows and why this hobby is growing is a mix of the love of music, the passion and emotions music brings us. Music, like a good meal, should take us places and bring back memories. This weekend I had several of these reminders. Adding to the joy of the weekend was meeting the people creating art with soldering irons and other materials, making some new friends, running across old ones, and being able to finally meet a friend after three decades of talking. That sense of memory came very early on Friday. Coming off the elevator to my room I was greeted with Movement 8 "Hornpipe" from Handel's Water Music. As music does it pulled me into the Suite and I had my first exposure to Grandinote.

Aric Audio Custom 300B PSET Amplifier Review

Aric Audio Custom 300B PSET Amplifier Review
A music lover's amplifier.
Review By Paul Schumann
I have something to admit. I am a music lover. No, it's worse than that, I'm a certifiable music junkie. I listen to music at home. I listen to music at work. I listen to it in the car. I even hear music in my head when no music is playing. I'm always looking for new music to feed my addiction. My wife complains that my Christmas list is boring because all I ask for is music. Well, I do throw in a request for a pair of Berning 845 Monoblocks, but that never happens. Oh yes, my wife is a music junkie, also. She's always on the prowl for new music to add to her collection. Our tradition on Saturday and Sunday mornings is to listen to an album all the way through while eating our breakfast. It may be something brand new, or an album we haven't listened to in a long time. Usually, after our meal, we'll share what we think about it. Yes, music runs through our veins.

LampizatOr Baltic 3 Hi-Res DAC Review

LampizatOr Baltic 3 Hi-Res DAC Review
A new approach to Noval tube design from Poland.
Review By Greg Weaver
Founded near Warsaw Poland in 2010, while LampizatOr builds electronics and speakers, many are not aware of those offerings, as it was their exceptional tubed DACs that first put the company on the map. Owned and operated exclusively by its designer Łukasz Fikus, after hearing the disarming $17,250 Golden Gate DAC some seven years ago, then the even more engaging $27,000 Pacific DAC at a show during 2018, the reason for their success became apparent. Both these SET-based devices offered a conspicuous step closer to the undeniable naturalness, organic coherence, and space and dimensionality offered by the very best LP transcription systems. Łukasz and Lampizator North America principal Fred Ainsley have recently announced the launch of the nearly $50,000 Horizon DAC, which I will get to hear at its official launch during the third Florida Audio Expo in mid-February of this year.

The Magnificent Margules Group At FIAE 2024
Makin' more deep bass than should be legal.
Florida International Audio Expo 2024 Show Report By Steven R. Rochlin
It's always great to see long-timers like Bruce Ball during high-performance audio events. Representing the Margules Group here at the Florida International Audio Expo 2024, Bruce was able to achieve astounding bass from small stand-mounted two-way monitors. The masterpiece is their Margules U280 Limited Edition 30th Anniversary Amplifier ($12,000 as reviewed), which was joined by the Margules SF220 Special Edition Preamplifier ($8,000), Margules Music Server / Streamer ($3,000) and Margules Overture Century loudspeaker ($19,900). Viablue cables and accessories round out the stereo system. My wife Heather and I heard bass that simply shocked us with how deep and tight it was.

Year after year, show after show, this terrific trio comes together at high-performance audio events, and the Florida International Audio Expo 2024 is no exception.

Technical Audio Devices (TAD) Amazes At FIAE 2024
TAD brings a wide array of high-performance audio gear to Tampa.
Florida International Audio Expo 2024 Show Report By Steven R. Rochlin
Technical Audio Devices (TAD) began life as a project launched by Pioneer Electronic back in 1975 to create pro audio loudspeakers. According to the company, professional audio engineer Bart Locanthi felt that "genuine technology is true to the basics and that genuine technology places greater importance on sound quality than on technology for its own sake." Over 40 years later TAD is achieving its core goals with each new product it creates. Custom parts are designed and engineered to work in concert to seamlessly produce the very best sound quality possible given the size and cost. Here at the Florida International Audio Expo 2024, there's no doubt TAD has achieved its lofty goal of reproducing high-resolution recording studio quality sound.

Florida International Audio Expo 2024 Show Report By Steven R. Rochlin
From his love of music and tweaks to mechanical timepieces, Synergistic Research's chief designer Ted Denny brought an abundance of enthusiasm and excitement to the Florida International Audio Expo 2024. The company's new Voodoo Streamer Server ($14,995) seeks to bridge the gap between true lossless high-resolution digital audio and the world's best reel-to-reel tape players and vinyl LP turntables. To quote Synergistic Research, "Namely, a sense of compression where digital streaming sounds flatter and with high-frequency limitations when directly compared to the best LPs and tapes." Am sure many Enjoy the Music.com readers have read our extensive reviews of Synergistic fuses, PowerCell, plates, footers, cables, room acoustic devices… the list goes on and on.

House Of Stereo Features Naim Electronics And Focal Loudspeakers
A one-two hi-fi punch for your home, office, and outdoor living too!
Florida International Audio Expo 2024 Show Report By Steven R. Rochlin
It was delightful meeting the folks at Naim / Focal and longtime Florida retailer House of Stereo based in Jacksonville. Have personally visited their previous location decades ago, and wow they have grown quite a bit over the years! There was a lot to see and hear so let's get right to it. As this is the Sunshine State and we do enjoy our luxurious Pooltopia with outdoor kitchen, fire pit, and gardens, my Muse / wife Heather and I listened to the Naim electronics with Focal's OD Stone 8 outdoor landscape speakers in sand color ($799 each, also available in Basalt and Limestone colors). These two-way 8” outdoor textured speakers are IP55 certified and have anti-UV treatment to withstand adverse weather and climates. The sound was quite good, with generous midrange and smooth highs. Four or eight of these within your property would musically fulfill your outdoor lifestyle.

DALI Kore Floorstanding Speaker Review

DALI Kore Floorstanding Speaker Review
Danish loudspeaker giant DALI had promised a state-of-the-art loudspeaker at the press event in Munich's MOC.
Review By Michael Lang
After the presentation of the DALI Kore, in a rare moment of complete agreement, the guests left the room with a big smile on their faces. HIGH END audio show, May 2022, Munich, Germany – for someone from the press, this equates to four hectic days, a race against time to discover as many exciting new products as possible, to have them explained to you and to get hold of at least a couple of short listening sessions from a suitable sitting position. Despite these circumstances, the DALI showroom was packed with press representatives when CEO Lars Worre and his team explained the background and aspirations of the Kore. This was quite necessary, considering that DALI is known for a down-to-earth pricing of its loudspeakers.

Zesto Audio Eros 500 Select Class A Monoblock Review

Zesto Audio Eros 500 Select Class A Monoblock Review
The Eros 500 is a neutral, realistic, and natural-sounding amplifier.
Review By Robert H. Levi
The more I immerse myself in this hobby since I retired from the entertainment industry in 2008, the more certain I have become that the amplifier is the most important and telling piece of equipment in your system. It was in the late 1970s that J. Gordon Holt stated in Stereophile that one should buy a very good speaker that fits your needs and then bust your budget on an excellent amplifier. I have more or less followed that advice over the last half century of reproducing music in my home. Lately, however, with the maturation of really great tube and hybrid source devices, phono preamp sources and superb LP pressings, extraordinary phono cartridges, SACDs, much improved digital streaming with high resolution, and the maturing science of neutral and high-definition interconnectivity, I have confirmed that JGH was 100% right.

Within his editorial, J. Martins says "Audio professionals working in product development, design, manufacturing, and system implementation always meet new challenges as technologies change and evolve. In professional or consumer applications, digital audio signals are being carried using a number of different platforms, technologies, and digital protocols, creating a complexity that no single company in the test and measurement (T&M) field is able to address on its own. Increasingly, T&M companies specific to the audio industry are being forced to focus on one specific angle (e.g., electronics product design, acoustic measurements, production line testing, etc.). On the software front, things look a bit more dynamic, with the availability of solutions that are more or less able to react quickly to new industry demands. But on the crucial instrumentation front, where certification and calibration are a cornerstone of the quality and safety of the products and services we rely upon every day, the pace of product innovation is creating a growing gap with the available T&M hardware."
