Accuphase is a smooth operator

By Lam Seng Fatt

 

Another reviewer had bought the Accuphase E-470, so I ended up reviewing the lower model, the E-370 which is a 100-watter integrated amplifier.

 

Victor Pheh of Hi-Fi Creations Trading delivered the E-370 to my house and it took the two of us to carry it from the boot of his car. Accuphase products are heavy and very well made.

 

Press a button and the panel below the two meters will flip down slowly to reveal lots of buttons.… Read the full article

Full Accuphase system featured for demo event.

Edward Ku of Element Acoustics will be hosting a special, limited-seating Accuphase demonstration event at his Richmond showroom on June 24th.

Ku was one of many sponsors of the Vancouver Audio Show in the last two years, and said he is sad to see the show cancelled for 2017.

Accuphase C-3850 Preamplifier and P-7300 Power Amplifier

By | April 20th, 2017|Categories: Absolute Sound|Tags: , |

Accuphase C-3850 Preamplifier and P-7300 Power Amplifier

The Accuphase brand was originally marketed under the company name of Kensonic Laboratory, Inc. in 1972. To celebrate its tenth anniversary, the company changed its name to Accuphase Laboratory, Inc. The name Accuphase was chosen as a merging of the words accurate and phase. One of the basic ideologies of the company has been quality over quantity, from the first C-200 preamplifier and P-300 amplifier to the latest products under evaluation—the C-3850 preamplifier ($43,500) and P-7300 power amplifier ($32,000). First introduced in the U.S.… Read the full article

Accuphase DP-950/DC-950 Super Audio CD Player

By | March 10th, 2017|Categories: Positive Feedback|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Accuphase DP-950/DC-950 Super Audio CD Player

It’s been thirty years last year from the moment when Accuphase presented to the world their own Compact Disc Player. The two-box DP-80/DC-81 system premiered in July 1986 and immediately became a flagship player for this brand. The CD transport was designed in a way it would have been today, ie. with utmost attention to the power supply circuit and knowledge of the impact of vibration on sound. Equally important was its physical construction—DP-80 weighed 15 kg, which is more than most integrated players made at the time.… Read the full article

CES 2017: Less is more in high fidelity with Accuphase, Reed and Franco Serblin

accuphase-lignea-1

Keeping it very simple, yet exquisitely curated.

Less is more.

I’m a firm believer in that credo. Especially living in one of the most expensive cities in the world for real estate. No, not New York or Tokyo: Vancouver. Space is at a premium when $1,950 gets you 570 sq.ft. So I’m going to make the case for what city dwellers could look to for a truly high-end system that does not require an entire room just to house it.… Read the full article

Cocktail Audio X45 Pro Music Player/DAC | Review

By | June 14th, 2019|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , |

by Steve Marsh

Introduction: Cocktail Audio X45 Pro

I spend most of my time listening to vinyl rather than digital.  I have a lot invested in my analog front end and the musical satisfaction I get from it is quite complete.  The one big drawback, of course, is that a lot of new music is not available on vinyl.  At the beginning of my efforts to switch from the dying CD player technology to a more modern digital solution, I dabbled with computer audio, purchasing Amarra software and playing files with various USB DACs I was able to audition. … Read the full article

A glance backwards, and AXPONA 2019 fades into history. It’s already being overlaid by Munich 2019, which occurs too quickly after the event in Chicago. Then again, the calendar for high-end audio events has been chaotic for many years no, and shows no sign of getting better any time soon.

Frankly, I thought it a great show, one of the best in years.… Read the full article
