Snake Oil?

ONES ARE ONES AND ZEROS ARE ZEROS

Friends (and the clever foes) agree that the sound quality achievable with CD Replay, is still superior when compared to any streaming or computer / server based solutions.

 

But why?

PERFECT POWER CONDITIONING

In India, many consumers use some form of power AC power conditioning to protect electronic equipment, including audio equipment, from surges, fluctuations and other disturbances of the not always (always not?) reliable Indian power grid.

THE SEARCH FOR THE PERFECT BUDGET TURNTABLE

The Indian market is starting to saturate with entry level turntables. Unfortunately, most of them are hardly capable of revealing the beauty of that what vinyl reproduction can bring.

A good record cleaning machine is a must for every vinyl lover. A good cleaner will help you clean new records (yes, needed!), will preserve your current collection, and will unlock a wealth of new records as you can now refurbish your second-hand buys..

ARE EXPENSIVE CABLES WORTH THE DOUGH?

March 04, 2019

MORE FOR LESS. THE AUDIO NOTE DAC 0.1x

DAC2.1X SIGNATURE REVIEW

July 11, 2018

UNDER THE HOOD - AUDIO NOTE DAC 3 BALANCED

May 17, 2018

Audio Note pioneered a fundamentally different approach to D/A conversion than that taken by the rest of the industry, rejecting oversampling and digital filtering in favour of an architecture that takes the native data stream, converts it to analogue, then passes it through a simple filter.

UNDER THE HOOD - AUDIO NOTE M3 PHONO

March 26, 2018

The Audio Note M3 Phono is a Level 3 pre-amplifier with build in phono-stage. Not surprisingly all amplifying stages use tubes, while this pre-amplifier is also equipped with tube rectified and regulated power supplies for both the phono and line stage separately.

ON THE HISTORY OF AUDIO

January 24, 2018

When we think of the history of audio, it appears to be a series of continuous improvements, from primitive origins to our current state of the digital art. The earliest recorded music, Edison wax cylinders from the 1890's, were indeed crude, just as iPods and iPads are extremely sophisticated.

MUSICAL ECSTASY

ON THE STATE OF HIGH-END AUDIO IN INDA, AND THE SLOW SLIDE TOWARDS SONIC OBLIVION

June 26, 2017

Cost pressures prevail everywhere and elsewhere in the specialist audio industry, as in most other branches of consumer products, the relentless pursuit of ever-cheaper products to provide higher profits through lower and lower production costs continues unabated.

SYSTEMS OF TRANSCENDENCE

June 20, 2017

The idea of a one brand system is abhorred by audiophiles for good reasons – hifi designers have their personalities imbued in their products – mention someone like George Cardas and we associate him with cables, mention Jim Thiel and we know he is an authority in loudspeakers.
