Reign of the Mini-Monitors I: PSB Speakers Alpha P5

By | April 23rd, 2019|Categories: Dagogo|Tags: , |

Publisher’s note: Announcing a new Series, “Reign of the Mini-Monitors.”

Loudspeaker systems pressurize the space between the speakers themselves and the listener. Placing large, multi-driver speakers in a small room curtails the system’s potential, while forcing a pair of small speakers to play in a large room exposes their limitations. Using the right size of speakers in any given room, however, can bring about a very realistic recreation of the recording venue, be it an intimate jazz club, a 100-piece-plus symphony hall or a cathedral.

Well-Rounded Sound’s MM2, MM6 Speakers, and MX BL Amp/DAC: An Education in Budget High Fidelity

By | April 12th, 2019|Categories: Wall of sound|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Review by Jon Eben Field

I have to admit that I’m a sucker for low budget gear. Or perhaps I should add a caveat here and say, “I’m a sucker for low budget gear that sounds good.” Being an audiophile often entails spending a lot of time, energy, and, to be frank, money on high end electronics and speakers in pursuit of the ever elusive perfect sound. I should know. I have long since given up on the mental arithmetic required to evaluate the “value of my current system.” But there is also that other side to audiophile listening that is so dramatically engaging and entrancing: the budget components that, to use a common phrase, punch way above their weight.… Read the full article

SVS SB16-Ultra subwoofer Review

By | April 11th, 2019|Categories: Dagogo|Tags: , |

It was bound to happen. Eventually I would be my own man and stop being a slave to my preconceptions and long held beliefs. Stubbornness can only go so far until it’s simply no longer viable, no longer enviable, and no longer attractive. What was I thinking? For too long I held that the inclusion of a subwoofer in an audio system was a negative, a sign of failure, that I had to admit that my favorite speakers had failed me somehow.

Legacy Audio Valor speaker system and Wavelet DAC/preamp/crossover Review

Legacy Valor at Capitol Studio

REALITY

‘I am not a Starfleet commander, or T.J. Hooker. I don’t live on Starship NCC-1701, or own a phaser. And I don’t know anybody named Bones, Sulu, or Spock.’ – William Shatner

After a certain number of encounters with rabid fans blurring the line between reality and fantasy, it becomes necessary to set the record straight. The man who played James Tiberius Kirk is right; he is not a hero, but an actor. Every culture has its real heroes, persons of Valor.
