    RME UFX III Audio Interface review

    Superb ! Very in-depth and dense review. i'm gonna read it again and dive in it more carefully. Of course, as most of us could expect, performances from a top line RME machine are beyond reproach. This brand is definitely one of the top pro audio electronics makers. A question (sorry if I...

    HyperX Cloud Orbit S Gaming Headset Review

    Of course I know this, I've studied professionnaly the dangers of high SPL in industry or other noisy environment, and i Know the Fletcher and Munson curve and the difference between dB (unweighted) and dBa (weighted) Yuu're right to precise that a 114 dBoutput at 40 Hz is perceived at a much...

    HyperX Cloud Orbit S Gaming Headset Review

    High distorsion at 114 dB is not such a terrible issue, I laways wonder why Amir OK focuses so much on such high level for headphones (see for example his test of the Beyer 1990 Pro, not perfect but much better model than the very severe Amir's test tends to suggest) ? Of course, theorically we...

    Making further progress, TOPPING’s new flagship amplifier will be launched in late May!

    The MX3S is a good but low powered cheap integrated, with lesser power and connectvity than most of the competition offerings. I also wish for a full integrated including a top dac, BT, Wifi, usb, Hdmi, a very good preamp section, enough power (double than the MX3S), very good headphone output...

    Genelec 8361A Review (Powered Monitor)

    Well, the W371 wasn't designed for home use. it's primarily a device for studios. Of course, you can use it at home, but don't complain about its size or aesthetics. I admit it looks quite plain,not beautiful at all, but it ain't a priority for pro buyers. I don't this price point is...

    Genelec 8361A Review (Powered Monitor)

    For sure, I completely agree with you on the fact that a speaker's directivity pattern is a super important criteria. But we can't wholly characterize a speaker by one one criteria, as important as it is. And like you, i don't doubt the entire Genelec The Ones range has directiviry...

    Genelec 8361A Review (Powered Monitor)

    The Electro Voice MTS-6154 is a quite differenttype of speaker than the Genelecs 8381 or W371-8361. I can't see any equivalence between these speakers, except the fact they're cardioîd ? This Electrovoice isn't a large studio monitor, it's designed and intended for long throw live applications...

    ATC speakers / Monitors

    No Klippel NFS at ATC, but is this so important ? ATC has decades of experience in drivers and loudspeaker design, an anechoic chamber, and is a serious company that doesn't tell bullshit about the sound of cables, power chords, break in period, etc. Okay, they're too pricey and very...

    Alcons?

    At which SPL did you hear a compression effect in high medium/mid treble with the mighty Genelec 8381 ? I'm a bit surprised, it might have have been a very high SPL I guess, kinda live event SPL measured in room. I prefer to listen at lower levels, "realistic" yes, but at a domestic scale in...

    Alcons?

    Yeah, but is this so effective and important in practice ? Alcons ads a lot about their ribbon technology, but a speaker is a whole, not only an HF driver ? Question is : are they OVERALL better speaker than the competition, or just amazing in the treble resolution and dynamics, which could...

    Yamaha R-S202 Receiver Review

    If you don't need many features and connectivity, maybe the best for you could be the little Fosi. Simple devices are generally the most transparent (all things being equal) and simple things are often more reliable too. Just a few things : i don't consider myself as an audiophile, but as a...

    Yamaha R-S202 Receiver Review

    They are quite different devices, for functionnalities and technical design as well. I summarize what are in my opinion their respective PROS ans CONS, but it's hard to compare them and make a firm statement on which one is the best buy. It all depnds on your needs and risks taking by buying...

    Yamaha R-S202 Receiver Review

    @snuf and Daniel, I wasn't talking about the Loxjie A30 (a tiny budget amp quite in a different league, I'm not interested in) but about the Loxjie A40, much more versatile and powerful (not tested yet indeed) which can be compared to the Yamaha. The fact is these 2 Loxjies are load dependent...

    Yamaha R-S202 Receiver Review

    The Loxjie A40 seems to be pretty attractive too, I could be tempted but hesitating. For roughly the same price, it's neater, smaller than this Yam, it has even more functionnalities than the Yam - it adds a phono input (don't know if it's good or just an added feature for following the vinyl...

    Yamaha R-S202 Receiver Review

    All in all, that's a good device, with a lot of functionnalities. By a good brand well distributed all over the world, with a good reputation of reliabiity (having owned several Yam products for decades without any serious problem, I can assume this). As for me, the only problem is the audible...

    Yamaha R-N803 Smart Receiver Review

    I definitely agree. Some AVR are pretty good (I don't write "perfect") with a lot of functionnalities and enough power in the sub 1,5/2K € or $. The Yamaha R-n803D is a good connected stereo receiver anyway, and its successors the new 800, 1000 or more expensive 2000 stereo connected receivers...

    Can someone with some Genelecs compare them to these Bestisan clones, even if for the lols?

    Indeed the smallest Swans/Hivi monitor looks the same as the Bestisan or Senal seen above, they probably are all sourced by the same OEM chinese company. I found out an Amir review of this small Swans HIVI monitor. Not good results for this little Swans, but Amir found some good points and...

    Can someone with some Genelecs compare them to these Bestisan clones, even if for the lols?

    I seriously doubt it too. Emulating Genelec's design is one thing (it's not the first time such chinese clones are seen and sold on line) but getting the same level of expertise and experience is quite another issue. But we're talking about a little cute beast sold one tenth of the Gen 8010...

    Sonos Five Smart Speaker Review

    Connected speakers these days have made substancial progress, due to the financial and R&D resources of the big companies at the forefront of this tech trend (Sonos, Harman/Samsung, Google, Apple, Bose). So they can put very solid engineering in designing those little beasts. Their VFM is...
