CAF 2018: VIMBERG, TIDAL Audio, TW-Acustic, Transfiguration, Antipodes, and Skogrand

I may have misspoke, or left a few of my earlier proclamations about the newest VIMBERG speakers less than acutely defined. If you are a listener of our Occasional Podcast, or reader of our little sister publication Audio-Head.com, then you may have heard me refer to the VIMBERG Mino loudspeakers as possibly the greatest bargain in hi-fi. To eat my own words for being less than accurate, the VIMBERG Mino loudspeakers are indeed not the greatest bargain in hi-fi.… Read the full article

RMAF 2018: Vimberg, Tidal, Transfiguration

By | October 29th, 2018|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

As I’ve mentioned, it’s been a while since I’ve been to a high-end audio show—almost two years, to be exact. I exhibited for the last time at AXPONA back in 2017, which means I was stuck in my room for most of the show, but I made time one special visit due to the incredible buzz I was hearing. That room, of course, belonged to Doug White, proprietor of the Philadelphia-area dealership The Voice That Is. I wanted to hear Tidal Audio speakers and electronics from Germany in all their splendor, and I also wanted to visit my good friend and fellow importer Bob Clarke who brought a new Transfiguration Orpheus phono cartridge along for the ride.… Read the full article

Capital Audiofest 2017: The Voice That Is! makes new waves

I’d like to emphasize that the TIDAL Camira DMC, the TIDAL Ferios amplifiers, and the TIDAL Cables, were all introduced earlier in May of this year. Many times these new products are overlooked by showgoers because we naturally tend to focus our attention on the beautiful TIDAL speakers. As it is in this case the Agoria speakers are nothing new. Doing my best not overlook these TIDAL electronics as they are so essential to the speakers performance, as without them could the speakers do more than stand up front and look pretty?Read the full article

Antipodes Audio announce DS Edge network streamer (& server)

By | January 31st, 2017|Categories: DAR|Tags: , , , , |

DS Edge. Antipodes call it an Extensible Renderer – say whaaat? I call it an Upgradeable1 Endpoint2. We’ll tackle the two parts of my terminology revision separately.

1Endpoint means the DS Edge connects to a home network via Ethernet in order to receive digital audio from a server sitting elsewhere on the network. The Edge then sends the audio stream onwards to a DAC via USB or S/PDIF coaxial. That spells a first connectivity advantage over the Sonore microRendu (reviewed here).
