Bowers & Wilkins 800D3 Speakers and DB1 Subwoofers, McIntosh C1100 Preamp, Aurender A30 Server, Solid Tech Racks, Synergistic Research AC Conditioner

By | June 9th, 2019|Categories: Stereophile|

When I entered my penultimate Scott Walker Audio room, Kevin Wolff of Bowers & Wilkins was playing outtakes from a 1989 recording by Branford Marsalis. The sound of Marsalis’s sax was so distinctive and, to my ears, beautiful that I began to smile. (Trumpet was another instrument whose sound this system conveyed with perfection.) As Kevin segued into a 16/44.1 file of Thomas Dolby’s “I Scare Myself,” I scribbled in my notebook, “This is a system that reminds you of what the high end is all about.”

Despite some booming, the McIntosh midrange came through in spades.… Read the full article

2019 Editors’ Choice Awards: Subwoofers

REL T/7i $999 A special round of applause is due this mini-sub for music lovers. The T/7i is even faster and tighter than its forbear, yet remains tonally supple, with well-defined timbres. It’s also remarkably potent for a single, forward-firing 8" driver augmented by a quick-reacting, downward-firing 10" passive radiator (and a smooth 200W Class AB amp). The sumptuous high-gloss lacquered enclosure with aluminum accents has inputs for high-level Neutrik Speakon (cable included), plus low-level RCA and LFE. A little classic.… Read the full article

Subwoofers of AXPONA 2019

By | April 24th, 2019|Categories: Audioholics|Tags: |

Even though AXPONA focuses on two-channel setups, there were still a fair number of subwoofers on display at the 2019 show, and it may be a sign that audiophiles are becoming more receptive to the inclusion of subwoofers in their systems. AXPONA is also growing increasingly popular among the home theater crowd where subwoofers are nearly mandatory. In our final segment of our AXPONA 2019 coverage, we looked at a selection of the subs that were exhibited at the show. These subs range from affordable and reasonably sized to insanely expensive and gigantic.

REL’s New ‘Serie HT’ Subwoofers Deliver High-Value Home Theater Thrills

By | January 21st, 2019|Categories: Audioholics|Tags: |

The British subwoofer specialist REL Acoustics has been building audiophile-approved subs since 1990. One key feature of every REL sub has been the use of a “High Level connection,” which derives its input signal from the final output stage of the system’s main amplifier. Instead of receiving a line-level signal of low frequencies from a receiver’s (or surround processor’s) preamp section, REL subs are designed to accept the same full-range, high-current signal that the power amplifiers send to the main speakers.

Paradigm Defiance coneDefiance X12 & V12 Subwoofers Introduction

Among the larger home audio loudspeaker manufacturers, Paradigm has developed a reputation for taking their subwoofer products seriously.

Ever since SVS discosb-3000_pg_hero_w_re.jpgntinued their ‘12-Plus’ series of subwoofers, there has existed a fairly wide price gap between their ‘2000’ series subs which ranged from $700 to $800 and their ‘4000’ series subs which ranged from $1500 to $2000.
