Review: Auris Audio Nirvana – The sweet spot

By | September 19th, 2018|Categories: Headfonia|Tags: , , , , , , , |

In this review we take a close look at the newest and 3rd tube amp of the Auris collection.

Auris Audio

Only in March of this year we reviewed Auris Audio’s top of the line tube amp, the Headonia, here at Headfonia. Last year we covered their HA2-SE tube amp which won the “Best of 2017” award and so our loyal readers will probably already know all about Auris Audio.… Read the full article

Picture Sunday – Chord Electronics

By | September 1st, 2018|Categories: Headfonia|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Disclaimer: The star of this weeks’ picture Sunday are the Chord Electronics Dave and Blu MKII. This post is a part of our Picture Sunday series.

Ever since I listened to the Chord Electronics Dave I’ve wanted one for my collection. Unfortunately high end gear of this level doesn’t come cheap and I had to put my plans in the fridge for a while. Then High End Munich happened and Meze Audio was showing off their brand new Empyrean with the DAVE at their listening booth, and it sounded so incredibly good that things had to be set in motion.… Read the full article

Auris Audio

Last year we covered the Auris Audio HA2-SE tube amp so our readers will probably already know all about Auris Audio. Lately Auris has also been touring with the Head-Fi Canjam shows all over the world and the Serbian brand has become very popular in the personal audio market in a very short time. When I covered the HA2-SE back in 2017, Auris wasn’t as well-known yet in the headphone world but after our review and Auris’ presence at the different shows, everyone seems to know about Auris Audio.… Read the full article

Disclaimer: The stars of this weeks’ picture Sunday is the prototype Malvalve headphone. This post is a part of our Picture Sunday series.

It probably isn’t the first time you’ve seen this headphone appear on Headfonia as this Malvalve creation has been in our Canjam Europe reports before. It obviously still is a work in progress as we can see in the picture below that it’s form has changed over the years.
