Original Beats By dre beatbox vs b&w Zeppelin

With portable devices and convenience becoming many peoples’ music source and priority, the IPod dock system has replaced the traditional stereo in most of our homes. As for reputable choices their is the B&W Zeppelin air, NAD VISO 1, and Bose SoundDock, all of which will run $200+. The BeatBox made by the cable giant Monster, can be

DBx-bx3 vs sony ta-n80es

The under $500 used power amp market is pretty stacked with lots of potentially good options. Over the last two months we have compared the Sony TA-N80ES and the DBX BX3.

Acoustic Research AR90 Review

If you have been into HiFi for a while you’ve probably heard or read about Adcom. Adcom is widely known to be a brand that offers excellent performance/dollar. I remember the rave reviews by Stereophile for many products from Adcom. But, until you listen for yourself on your own gear against like products it is

The Budget CD Player Shootout

CD players are in a tough spot currently. On the one hand, many people are using a computer and external DAC for their source, then their is the recent surge in vinyl. I like vinyl and I have a computer based system but I still love to listen to my huge CD collection from time

ELAc uni-fi ub5 review

When I first heard Andrew Jones was moving to ELAC from Pioneer I did not really know what to think of it. The two companies could not be any further from each other from size to structure. As soon as we reviewed the Debut series, his first design with ELAC, we knew that this new

Under $1000 DAc Shootout

Introduction 32 bit, 384kHz, ultra-low distortion,  “Up to” 130dB S/N Ratio(A-weighted), Maximum linear power supply, Time domain jitter Eliminator, blah, blah, blah!  Endless filler words from marketing teams ring through my ears as I researched DAC’s for this review. Navigating through the word salad that manufacturers use to make their product stand out amongst the
