Not new news: Electrocompaniet’s ECI 6DX

By | June 18th, 2018|Categories: DAR|Tags: , , , , |

It’s not new but it’s new to me after iconic Norwegian hi-fi manufacturer tagged yours truly in an Instagram post today about their ECI 6DX: a single box of electronics that plays elegantly to this website’s editorial lean toward super-integrated amplifiers where amplifier, DAC and network streamer come together under one roof to dispense with hi-fi rack and a hot mess of interconnects and power cables.

On amplification, the ECI 6DX pushes 125 wpc into 8 Ohms, 200 wpc into 4 Ohms and will even (apparently) cope with 2 Ohm loads into which it delivers 370 wpc.… Read the full article

Electrocompaniet ECI-6 Integrated Speaker Amplifier – Review

By | March 4th, 2018|Categories: Amplifier - Headmania|Tags: , , , , |

I didn’t know much about Electrocompaniet until recently when Razvan from AVMall told me it’s one of his favorite Brands.

He was actually very excited that he managed to bring Electrocompaniet in Romania through AVMall. He also got me worked up about their products, especially about their amplifiers.

It’s hard not to get enthusiastic when you look at their specs and I thank AVMall for giving the ECI6, their integrated speaker amplifier for a test run.

Looks & Build Quality

This amplifier has some slick looks, mostly because of glass front plate which gives it a really nice touch.… Read the full article

Martin Logan ESL-11A Impression Review

By | September 8th, 2018|Categories: Speakers - Headmania|Tags: , , , , , |

I remember a few years back, when I was convinced that I am a headphone only guy and that I prefer headphones to speakers. At that time, I had my headphone setup in the living room, on a desk near the couch that was facing the TV. At one point, after I finished a music listening session with my HD800 / Audeze LCD-3, I decided to watch a movie. The sound was coming out of the speakers embedded in the TV.… Read the full article

Human after all: the ModWright-modded OPPO UDP-205

By | March 5th, 2018|Categories: DAR|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Simplicity – does your system have it? Do you wish it did? I recall the good old days when my entire playback chain consisted of one box. All I wanted/needed back then was a CD player, and I rambled my way through many of the best available at the time: Sony, Krell, McIntosh, Wadia, Lector, Meridian, Electrocompaniet, Simaudio, Linn, and Esoteric. I routinely gave my vinyl-loving friends a hard time about how many components they needed – table, tonearm, cartridge, stylus, phono stage, etc – and how complex it was to achieve an optimal setup.… Read the full article

Stage III Concepts A.S.P. Proteus power cable Review

By | November 17th, 2017|Categories: Dagogo|Tags: , |

It’s not Just a PC – It’s A Component

Let’s start with some perspective. The Stage III power cords, especially the Proteus, the subject of this review, and its siblings at the top of the Stage III pantheon, are not for the faint of heart. We’re not talking about any other power cords that purport to improve over stock cords. We’re taking about power cords that compete at the very highest echelons of esoteric audiophile stock. The competition includes Nordost Odin II, Tara Labs Grand Master Evolution, Stealth Dream V16 UNI, PranaWire Avatar II and Siltech and Elrod entries; and this doesn’t even get to the “affordable” high end cords like the JPS Labs Aluminata, Synergistic Research Galileo, Silent Source Music Reference and Shunyata Sigma NR.

MQA and Deezer announce partnership

Cobrand_MQA + Deezer-2

MQA continues to gain market share.

Even though it’s Labour Day around the world, and we’re all supposed to be doing our level best to avoid work like the plague, I felt compelled to bring you news that digital-music juggernaut MQA has announced yet another partnership, this time with streaming heavyweight Deezer. The agreement promises to significantly expand MQA’s global reach, and put MQA into the earbuds of millions of 20-somethings who’ve probably never heard of it before. Having firmly landed on the positive side of the fence some time ago for MQA’s proprietary music-software codecs I see this as a boost for the audiophile world, and music lovers in general.… Read the full article

47 Laboratory 4739 Fudou power amp Review

By | June 1st, 2017|Categories: Dagogo|Tags: , |

47 Lab Fudou47 Lab Fudou rear

True and consistent with his minimalist design philosophy of “Only the simplest can accommodate the most complex,” Junji Kimura of 47 Labs develops his products to have the highest performance possible with the fewest parts; and he does it in such a perfectionist stance that it’s often accomplished at the detriment of user conveniences. For instance, the Gaincard has only 9 parts per channel and the world’s shortest signal path of 32mm including the length of parts, but the featherweight body of the 4706 Gaincard S amplifier was problematic in my 2002 review of it.

AVM Ovation MA8.2 monoblock power amplifier

By | March 30th, 2017|Categories: Stereophile|

I’ve known Peder Bäckman, international sales director for the German firm Audio Video Manufaktur GmbH (AVM), for many years, ever since he worked with Electrocompaniet. When I told him that I was looking for products to review in the reference system in my new 20′ by 16′ by 9′ music room, he invited me to browse AVM’s large catalog and see what tickled my fancy. In consultation with John Atkinson, it became clear that AVM’s largest, most powerful monoblock amplifier, the Ovation MA8.2 ($29,990/pair), seemed a good fit.… Read the full article
