Simaudio Moon i-7

There are many good audio products that hit all the sonic checkmarks, but very few that transcend the usual descriptors to deliver a feeling of being in the presence of music-makers. The Simaudio MOON i-7 is one of those components. It does all the...

JoLida JD 801A

I had been a restless audiophile, upgrading components, buying new interconnect and speaker cables, changing to Martin-Logan electostatic speakers, generally looking for a more satisfying listening experience. After buying a new JD 801 amplifier in...

Denon PMA 255 UK

Owned one of these amplifiers for about 7 years. It's driven Mission 701's, Eltax Silverstone 220's, and most recently Eltax Symphony 8.3's. Very well made, fantastically reliable. Very strong sound, deep bass and well distinguished mid and treble....

Kenwood VR 8060-S

This is a good receiver for the price. All my existing components connected (even my phonograph) and there are numerous options as to how you connect each item. I've had no problems so far and am happy with this purchase.

Pioneer Elite VSX 59TXi

Granted, that price is quite high—enough, in fact, to get you a respectable preamp-processor and multichannel power amp. But, as evidenced by the entry of such high-end companies as Lexicon and Arcam into the receiver market, there's a lot of value in...

Anthem AVM 50 BL

I go back a bit with Anthem. Years ago, with another publication, the Anthem AVM 20 and PVA 7 pre/pro and power amp combo were offered to me for review. I hadn't sought them out, but I knew the parent company Sonic Frontiers, and was very familiar with...

NAD C 340

I managed to obtain this from eBay for £45.00, and compared to my knackered old JVC AGX-1 from the 80's, it was incredible! The clarity and definition of the sound was awesome! I personally love the styling, it's just a big block of metal. You get the...

MBL 5011

For instance, if you were to play the beautiful-sounding Deutsche Grammophon CD of the Mutter/Levine reading of Berg's Violin Concerto, you'll notice a startlingly expansive soundfield of tremendous depth-though not necessarily width, the one area in...

Vincent SV 233

If I'd handed in Vincent's Operating Instructions as an assignment, my old English teacher would have marked it ‘Needs Work.' The English is mostly fractured and the pages bore ‘corrections' in the form of poor- quality photocopies glued (though very...

Cooking with Kids

Love the ability to print recipes in Word, save/modify, and go forward. Enough for variety but not too much. Not intimidating. An experienced cook and mother, so the recipes are very practical and some very eloquent. Audio tips nice. Great to be able...

Jeff Rowland Design Group Consonance Preamplifiers

I see the only other review is dated 2000 - which is a pity. So I'm writing this for those of you who are really, really doing your homework.

ME Sound ME 850 Amplifiers

I am the third owner of this wondeful amplifier. I can't vouch for its age, but according to owner no2 it is late 90s. This version is upgradable to 450,000 microfarad storage (275,000 as is). Current capability is 70amps.

Pioneer Elite VSX-84TXSi - (A/V Receivers)

Pioneer Elite gear gets more attainable and less "elite" with each passing year. In the days of Laserdisc players, though, the Pioneer Elite CLD-97 could run you $2,500. Thank you sir, may I have another!

Excellent product. Well made, reliable with great manufacturer back up. Lively detailed sound and relaxing to the ear for those long listening sessions late into the night. The preamplifier I used to compare the Boulder to was a Threshold FET 9E and I...

Sirius Streamer GT STARMATE w/ Car Kit ($30 REBATE)

Marantz PM-82 Integrated Amplifiers

Terk FM-4000 FM Edge Amplified Indoor FM Antenna

The Terk Edge really works. It was very easy to install. I am now pulling in stations that were very difficult to hear clearly. Only one New York City station is still problematic but I rarely listen to it anyway. Give it a try.
