Magnepan LRS speakers Review

By | November 18th, 2019|Categories: Dagogo|Tags: , |

Magnepan-LRS

When I worked as a Certified Public Accountant, I would return to my office tired and stressed after a long day spent at a client’s office. The best way for me to relax was to listen to my office stereo playing music. I installed a stereo system featuring a pair of Magnepan MMG (Mini Magnepans) speakers in 1997, which cost me $500 for the pair. My co-workers would listen and say those are great sounding so they must be some really expensive audiophile speakers.

Reign of the Mini-Monitors II: Paradigm Premier 200B

By | November 1st, 2019|Categories: Dagogo|Tags: , |

My first encounter with Paradigm was in 1992, about ten years after the company made its start just outside of Toronto, Canada. I wanted an inexpensive but decent sounding pair of bookshelf speakers for a second system that would go in a bonus room office above the garage. So I did what audiophiles usually did in the previous century, I got in my car and drove down to my local audio shop. Sam and Ed of Audio Solutions were always ready to greet me when I walked through the doors.

Audio Note UK AN-E/SPx AlNiCo Loudspeakers Review

By | October 17th, 2019|Categories: Dagogo|Tags: , |

I will start this review with a big dose of reality.

The Audio Note AN-E/SPx AlNiCo speakers are clearly not for most readers reading this review. This is a two-way loudspeaker with an 1-inch silk dome tweeter and an 8-inch woofer. It isn’t ten feet tall, doesn’t have beryllium or diamond or electrostatic tweeters, nor is it made with 300-lb steel bracing or other rocket ship materials. One look at these speakers and another look at their price will put the AN-E/SPx AlNiCo in the land of crazy no matter what I say about them.

ArteLuthe’s La Piccola: A Monitor Speaker that Refuses to Act like One

By | October 5th, 2019|Categories: Wall of sound|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

My experience with ArteLuthe speakers began when I reviewed the Vivace Mini, a combined effort between Robert Gaboury of Arteluthe and Frank Ng of Triode Labs and Finale Audio. The Vivace Mini is a single driver horn-loaded speaker that defied my expectations of what could be accomplished with a tiny high efficiency driver. My review of that speaker is available here. I also had an opportunity to listen to Gaboury’s Cadenza speakers, which combine the elegance of a horn tweeter and a large woofer in quite spectacular fashion.… Read the full article

By | August 30th, 2019|Categories: Dagogo|Tags: , |

I am a lifetime member of the Los Angeles Orange County Audio Society and their monthly meetings give the members opportunities to be introduced to some great sounding lesser known audio components. This was the case one Saturday afternoon in March, 2019, when our meeting was held at High End by Oz in Westwood, CA. The owner of the store, Mr. Ozan Turan (Oz), was a gracious host and played some beautiful music through a pair of speakers made by a company from Vilnius, Lithuania called AudioSolutions.

Interviewing Bill Dudleston of Legacy Audio on Legacy Audio Valor speaker system and Wavelet DAC/Preamp/Crossover

By | August 15th, 2019|Categories: Dagogo|Tags: , , , |

The appearance of the Valor Speaker System as a new flagship product for Legacy was especially exciting for me as it incorporated some new design elements that Bill Dudleston had been working on for some time. This was the first time a multi-driver concentric design had been released by Legacy Audio. As Bill is widely recognized as an authority on speaker design, room equalization, recording and active speaker systems, I thought this afforded the perfect opportunity to have him discuss the principles behind the design of the Valor.
