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.

Audio Blast: Audio Sensibility Y Cables Related to Schroeder Method of Interconnect Placement

By | February 25th, 2019|Categories: Dagogo|Tags: , |
