    EverSolo Z8 DAC & Amp Review

    Yeah, this guy has no measurements so he goes to words like warm, dynamic , full, juicy, punch, weight, solid, boldness, clarity, edged, focus, diffusion, extension. soundstage and that a SMSL has less bass. Again, it's just words that he is selling. All meaning less.

    "Secrets" about the consumer audio business you may find interesting

    All retail business are the same today. That is why in critical categories (food, drugs, durable medical devices) you have Government agencies assuring (or trying to) that product dont harm users. Audio has no controls, other than dont burn the place down. I would argue that Marketing will only...

    Loxjie A30 vs NAD D3020 V2

    I listend to both on new to me Elac Debut 6.2 & Energy Sub in my Computer Audio Room. Verdict: I dont see a reason to keep the NAD. Its not bad, its just not the improvement I was expecting. Actually, to me the Loxjie sounded louder -no clipping- and fits perfectly under my computer and it has...

    Loxjie A30 vs NAD D3020 V2

    Yesterday I was listening at 44 up to 47, but the impedance of the speaker has also to do with that. As far as I know, I have never clipped the A30. I have for today a set of Micca RB42, as I am buying a set of ELAC Debut 6.2 from the FB market place tomorrow.

    NAD Wireless USB DAC 2 Review

    I can see one next to a Mac/PC with all the media and remote app (Apple Remote for Macs included in iOS) on a tablet, the station next to the amp. Its best feature is its simplicity.

    CHORD Mojo 2 Review (Portable DAC & HP Amp)

    This is unjustifiably expensive for what it is. If looking at a simple Sinad to Price ratio it would be underwhelming.

    Belden ICONOCLAST XLR Cable Review

    I have used Belden in the Ham Radio hobby and in fact they are the best quality our there. However, this is just audio jewelry. If you have the means and want to waste $800 go at it. Just like a new shirt or watch it will make you feel better for a while.
