Stealth Audio Cables USB-T Select

By | March 26th, 2019|Categories: Dagogo|Tags: , |

2018 was a year where, between my law firm, my ailing parents and my not-for-profit activities, I was working 75-hour weeks and I had little time to write reviews. However, I never stopped checking out new components to try and further improve my system.

I’ve recently started a phased retirement, and am finally able to write reviews of the components that impressed me the most during the last 18 months. This also enables me to write about components which I have had in my system for long stretches, so for the foreseeable future my reviews will be based on long-term listening experiences.

HiFiMAN’s Bluetooth Ananda-BT come with a USB twist

By | March 6th, 2019|Categories: DAR|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Ananda. For Buddhists, a state of extreme happiness. For Chinese headphone manufacturer, a mid-tier headphone model: full-size, circumaural and open back with the 1-2 micron-thick ‘NSD’ planar magnetic diaphragm easing power thirst. At 25 Ohms input impedance and 103 dB input sensitivity, the Ananda demands no muscle amp. Pretty much any portable player (or integrated amplifier headphone socket) would do.

But which player? The tyranny of choice wades into view with numerous options from Astell&Kern, Sony, FiiO, iBasso, Shanling, Pioneer, Onkyo, HiBy, Opus or HiFiMAN’s own offerings.… Read the full article

Allo USBridge Review

By | February 11th, 2019|Categories: Dagogo|Tags: , |

Just say Allo to Digital Audio

Motivation is a wondrous thing, as is procrastination, and if you get the timing just right, one saves you from the other. It’s at this crossroads that I find myself having to write about Allo’s USBridge device and respond to a letter forwarded to my publisher.

Let’s start with the letter, where this reader of Dagogo (dagogo.com), in his words, is being driven crazy by the terminology and seeming endless details, caveats, and stipulations made by supposed audiophile experts on the topic/subject of digital audio.
