    Role Audio Skiff Speaker Review

    You can "upgrade" to a single 3.5 inch titanium driver for only $1700 per pair- "We set two Sampans up in our listening room next to a pair of 'normal size' floorstanders (my Triangle Cellos) but did not tell anyone ... everyone thought that the sound they were...

    Tice Power Conductor 2 Vintage AC Cable Review

    I'm picturing an audiophile back in the 90s going back and forth from A to B, to both on, then both off, then all the other combos, with the Diana Krall CD on repeat whilst the wife notices the changes from the next room.

    Tice TPT Enhanced Line Conditioner Review

    Thanks for this review. As a teenager I would flip through my dad's copies of Stereophile and The Absolute Sound and was always intrigued by this type of thing. Interesting to see that it is just a super cheap power cable wrapped up in a wooden box full of black goop. Also, all this Radio...

    Emotiva ERC-4 CD Player (DAC) Review

    Very interesting. This makes me wonder how my old Marantz CD6005 would measure up. It was priced close to the Emotiva tested here when I bought it 7 or 8 years ago. Hah, just looked and they have made a CD6006 and CD6007 since then!

    Eleven XIAudio Broadway Headphone Amp Review

    Green magic marker? Thanks for the memories. The Audio Prism CD Stoplight Putting green around the edge of the CD absorbed stray laser light and made everything sound better. Or something.

    Audioquest Pearl USB Cable Review

    Wow at that Cardas Clear Beyond RCA review- Switching from Cardas's budget-priced, $125-per-meter Iridium to Cardas's $4250-per-meter Clear Beyond changed my system's sound character as much as changing phono cartridges or DACs: The Bartók DAC became more silent, grainless, full-spectrum, and...

    Parasound 2125 V.2 Amplifier Review

    Yeah, I've noticed that. Bought my Parasound NewClassic 2250 v.2 over 7 years ago and it was a lot of power for $999. Today it is selling for $1800.
