By Lam Seng Fatt

 

The Pro-Ject Xtension 9 Evolution turntable is one of those designs that uses mass loading to suppress resonances and vibrations, which is the opposite of Rega’s light-is-more philosophy.

 

Therefore the turntable is rather heavy. Pro-Ject states that the Xtension 9 plinth is made from MDF filled with metal granulate, that gives high mass and is non-resonant and the entire package weighs 16kg.… Read the full article

Bluesound has previously delivered a stellar lineup of network based home audio equipment that would amalgamate to form a complete musical eco-system. The ethos for this is applied simply by utilizing a simplified control scheme that’s centered more on app-based operation with the equipment purpose-built to shine according to what they are made for. The Node, as the name would imply, functions as a branch of communication which delivers the raw digital data in a communicable form to the typical Hi-Fi components it’s paired with or a pair of powered speakers if your system is simple like that.… Read the full article

You can adjust the loading and gain on the fly with controls on the front panel.

 

By Lam Seng Fatt

 

From the outset, I must say that the Pro-Ject Tube Box DS2 is one of the best affordable phono preamps that I have heard. The key word is ‘affordable’ as there are better ones out there, but they come at much higher cost.

 

At RM2,995 for the black or silver version and RM3,500 for the silver with wooden side-panels (there is also a black with wooden side panels version) model that I reviewed , it is certainly very affordable in this age of super expensive super high-end components.… Read the full article
