Tonally, these guitars are definitely up-market. This review instrument, the Atlas E Marquis Travel, is the baby of the family.… Read the full article

Following in the drama-fuelled footsteps of the UK, tonight marks the launch of the much-anticipated Love Island USA, and your new TV obsession as you watch Love Island USA online for the next month or so. 

Now, that news will either fill you with euphoria or leave you perplexed, asking yourself 'what's a Love Island?'. And if you fall into the latter of those groups, you are in for a treat.

Daedalus Audio Muse Studio Loudspeaker

The Muse Studio is an upgraded version of Daedalus Audio’s lowest priced loudspeaker, the Muse. Both Muse speakers were designed for listeners with smaller rooms, perhaps just like mine? Utilizing the same cabinet, and drivers as the Muse, the Studio employs a crossover network developed for Daedalus’ Athena speakers to give it a higher level of definition, and accuracy. Yes sir, Mr. Hinkley, I am an excellent target for the very design goals of your Muse Studio. 

Bring it on.

Sounding Off

Having made it a point of emphasis to listen to Lou Hinkley’s loudspeakers every year at AXPONA, I can say without hesitation that regardless of model, Daedalus speakers have never failed to impress me.Read the full article

In 2012, the original AudioQuest DragonFly thoroughly disrupted the DAC market. For so many casual enthusiasts who had never previously considered the possibility of improving their digital-audio experience, DragonFly was nothing short of a revelation. Meanwhile, even the most experienced audiophiles were compelled to reexamine long-held notions of what a DAC could and should be. Stereophile’s Art Dudley enthusiastically summarized, “DragonFly is fun: It’s a thumb in the eye of those tea-pinky tyrants who would tell the rest of us what is and is not high end.… Read the full article

Dr. Mario World: release date, trailer and first impressions

By | July 9th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Update: Dr. Mario World for iOS and Android has launched a day early, and we have already played through a lot of the 200 levels. Here's how to download the game and what we think of it so far in a hands-on review.

Like bad medicine, we've been served a lot of mediocre puzzle games on mobile in recent years – mostly an endless parade of poor Candy Crush clones. Good news: Nintendo is trying to put a change that by calling in its head doctor.… Read the full article
