Due to public demand, Brainwavz has decided to introduce a new BA-based series of IEMs. In total there are three new BA-based IEMs; the B100, B150, and B200. Having recently heard the B100 I have had high hopes for further up the line of this new serious stab at audiophile hearts and minds from Brainwavz. What I have here is the B150, the middle man, houses a single Balanced armature which does all the heavy lifting.… Read the full article

Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers with Thelonious Monk; Analog Sparks 180 gram LP

By | February 24th, 2017|Categories: Audiophillia|

Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers with Thelonious Monk. Analog Sparks 180 gram vinyl reissue. UNIM-ANA-8283.

As the first track Evidence bursts from the speakers, you’d be forgiven in mistaking Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers with Thelonious Monk for a ‘Free Jazz’ album by Anthony Braxton or Eric Dolphy. The second track, however, In Walked Bud brings us back to straight ahead bop jazz. Turns out Monk was only messing with us.

No matter the style, the playing and the collaboration between two of the great American jazz minds is superlative.… Read the full article

Lucie Horsch — Vivaldi

By | February 24th, 2017|Categories: Audiophillia|

Lucie Horsch — Vivaldi. Amsterdam Vivaldi Players. Decca 4830896. [53:00]. International release 7th Oct 2016.

There’s no in between with the recorder. It’s either a toy in a child’s hands or you’re an international virtuoso like Marion Verbruggen or Michala Petri. Yet, in Lucie Horsch, we have that rarity. Both. At 17, the Dutch girl already has an enviable reputation as soloist on her instrument. And what other recorder player gets a Decca recording contract while still at school?… Read the full article

Take a breath.

A shift of gear, now. From reference-grade DSD DACs to reference-grade turntables.

This will be the third of three turntable evaluations that I’ve done over the past year, rounding out what’s turned out to be the top three that I’ve had in my listening room. One, the Walker Proscenium Black Diamond Level V system, I own; one, the Wave Kinetics NVS turntable with Durand Telos 12” Tonearm was a long-time visitor, though no longer here for quite a bit now; and one is the subject of this review.… Read the full article

HTC U smartphone will examine your auditory canal

By | February 24th, 2017|Categories: AV Hub|

HTC U Ultra

HTC’s latest flagship smartphone, the U Ultra, and its playful junior bro the U Play, will be available in Australia from March 8th, outright from JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman, and on post-paid plans from Vodafone.

In addition to the headline attractions of “liquid surface glass design” (lustrous, symmetrical, curved glass construction, it says here) and a ‘second screen’ to allow easier viewing of notifications and more even while the phone is in standby, we were intrigued, as is of course our focus, by aspects of the sound and imaging of the new model.… Read the full article
