Marantz SR8012 Introduction

Marantz SR8012The Marantz name has always been synonymous with hi fidelity since the brand’s inception over 60 years ago. Look around the audio discussion groups and you’ll find vintage Marantz enthusiasts devouted to the brand. When Sound United purchased the brand along with Denon, Definitive Technology, and Polk, and others, we wondered what they’d do to differentiate Marantz which shares AV receiver platforms with Denon.  This concern was put to rest with the release of their flagship SR8012.

RBH SI-615 Introduction

RBH SI-615 sideviewWhile I love reviewing new floorstanding super towers from RBH Sound, I also recognize in-walls represent a big chunk of their Custom Integrator business. Let’s face it, not everybody has the space to accommodate a pair of Signature reference towers in their listening space or those that do simply can’t replicate the same speaker setup as a surround channel. But, what if there was a way to get Signature level of performance without having the big hulking box?

Anthem STR Silver StackAnthem STR Series Introduction

In today’s day and age, with the focus on convenience often overruling quality, it’s rare to find products that emphasize fidelity first above all else.  Anthem is a company whose origins started in two-channel and thus they created the STR series of products to remind audiophiles of that. The STR line of products comes in an STR integrated amplifier ($4,499), preamp ($3,999) and power amp ($5,999). Wanting to better understand Anthem’s best foot forward approach to two-channel audio, I requested their STR preamp and power amp separates stack to take a deeper look.… Read the full article

By | September 27th, 2018|Categories: Audioholics|Tags: |
