AXPONA 2019 Show Coverage brought to you by the LSA Group

“The basic idea here was to see what we could put together for $10,000,” Shayne Tenace of Tenacious Sound told me when I visited his EgglestonWorks and Primare room at AXPONA 2019. Shayne’s known for doing this kind of demonstration–at one of his first trade shows a few years ago he garnered a lot of great press for assembling an awesome $5000 system, built around a $4000 pair of speakers.… Read the full article

Gregor Huebner, Los Sonadores | The Vinyl Anachronist

By | March 27th, 2019|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

My first listen of violinist Gregor Huebner Los Sonadores was a special sonic treat, if only for the reason that I had just set up the EgglestonWorks Emma EVO loudspeakers and the Luxman LX-380 integrated amplifier and this was one of the first CDs I played. The Emma EVOs and the LX-380, which will both be featured in an upcoming issue of The Occasional, are a particularly gorgeous combo and I wound up falling in love with the sound–something I consider remarkable because both products are relatively affordable.… Read the full article

Album cover - Pikefruit Sprig

Welcome! You’ve made the transition from The Vinyl Anachronist blog, which I’ve been writing since 2010, to the new Vinyl Anachronist section of the Part-Time Audiophile website. I’ve been contemplating my first music review in this format, and I’ve decided on this, Pikefruit’s Sprig, because I listened to this EP yesterday for the first time on a newly-assembled review system featuring the EgglestonWorks Emma EVO loudspeakers and a Luxman LX-380 integrated amplifier. As I was fine-tuning everything, I grabbed this CD with its relatively low-key cover and slipped it into my CD transport and pressed play.… Read the full article

RMAF 2018: Eggleston Works, Brinkmann, AudioQuest

By | November 28th, 2018|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , |

It seems like every time I run into Anthony Chiarella, good sound is present. Brinkmann Audio turntables at the HiFiBuys event in Atlanta?  Good sound. EgglestonWorks speakers with a full Brinkmann stack in Denver?  Good sound.  No, scratch that.  Great sound.

I’ve known that Brinkmann can make great turntables.  Then a year ago I heard the Nyquist DAC.  Oh yeah, that’s very nice.  House sound of Brinkmann?  Analog.  Smooth. Resolving.  Oh yeah, the good sound that’s not “too hi-fi”.  I’ve never seen Mr.… Read the full article

VPI Hosts Press Open House Day. Part II: The Ultimate “Man Cave?”

Everyone jumped in their vehicles at the end of the factory tour and drove—or caught a ride—to the “VPI Man Cave” for some listening sessions.

How did the VPI man cave come into being? “After Mom passed,” Mat shared, “Dad wasn’t living in the house since it was too big and we were paying taxes on it. They needed to Mat said, “either find something to do with the house or sell it.” The idea of what to do with the house eventually became apparent at an audio show.… Read the full article
