Any plans to review the Audioquest Beetle? There are surprisingly few reviews out there.
None has been offered for review yet.

Amirm, where abouts are you located? I have a friend in the San Francisco area that might be interested in sending a Yamaha Integrated amp in for testing.

I live in Seattle area so shipping especially with UPS is very reasonable from where you are.

I really wish I was still living on the west coast as I would love to see my Mytek Manhattan II and Nuprime evolution amps measured.

Can someone in the US sent Amirm (if interested) a NAD C370 2 years in a row (2000 an 2001) amplifier of the year. It was one of the best/older sounding amps NAD ever build. Iám curious how it compairs to the class D amplifiers. The specifications https://www.stereophile.com/content/nad-c370-integrated-amplifier-specifications
It exeeds it specifications quite. https://www.stereophile.com/content/nad-c370-integrated-amplifier-measurements-part-2
I have one but using it daily an to sent this by post from holland is not so practical an a long way.

If I'd lived in the US I probably would have shipped my Marantz PM-16 to him and my Scan Speak Reference Monitors....too bad :D

Would anyone be interested in measuring a Revel Performa M22 speaker? I have an extra one (other one is serving as center channel) that I can loan for a while. Its 2nd generation Performa and therefore discontinued, but there wasn't much written about the M22 as the floorstanders seemed to get all the press.

Amirm - you just need a single speaker, correct?

Yes, only one speaker. Start a conversation with me and we can decide if it makes sense to measure it.

Anything from D-sonic or the Pascal xpro line been measured? It did not seem to be the case in my search.
No, nothing on those fronts.

amirm,

Would you interested in testing Audiolense?

You could measure the usual DSP stuff which is always interesting.

But you could take it further and measure how dsp in general influences other measures, such as amp distortion, speaker distortion etc.

I did some simulations a few years ago. The results suggested that a pure frequency correction basically gave the same work load on average as no correction. It goes without saying that music which is heavy on bass frequencies & and a correction that amplifies the same frequencies can be challenging to the speakers. Apart from that I could not spot a difference.

With time domain correction (which was even more tasking in Audiolense back then than now) the increased load was equal to 1dB more sound pressure. I used random noise for the simulations, so this test was far from extensive. This is more or less uncharted territory and I believe a lot of folks would be interested.

Sure but what would I measure and how? Do you have a platform in mind to test it on? Please start a conversation with me and we can take it from there.

Hello, sir! Long time listener, first-time caller. For testing, I would like to offer my tiny Fiio A1 headphone amplifier. They cost less than 25 dollars on Amazon. I believe it's based on this chip: http://www.ti.com/product/TPA6130A2

Any interest in this entry-level amp? I'm willing to pay shipping both ways from where I live in Salt Lake to/from Seattle.

Hello,
New to the forum and really enjoying it. I was wondering if you’ll be interested in reviewing an NHT Power2 amplifier?

I wanted to add that I also have a Logitech Squeezebox Touch if interested.

Thanks.

Edgar
