Revel Performa3 M126Be Loudspeaker

Revel Performa3 M126Be Loudspeaker

During several recent audio shows, Revel has teased out what I would term a “slow reveal” of elevated-performance versions of its mid-priced Performa3 series. To Revel’s credit, the intro of these new speakers was not accompanied by the “limited” or “signature edition” puffery that normally attends the unveiling of upgraded models. Actually, there wasn’t much in the way of fanfare over their debuts. But clearly these were no longer “stock” Performa3 models; nor were they sufficiently elite to re-certify as Revel Ultima2’s.… Read the full article

CES 2019 Report

CES 2019 Report

I arrived without any expectation. It’s hardly headline news that high-end audio at CES has been running on fumes in recent years. Would this be the year that showing up would be a waste of time? Turns out, what I found was a show relegated to a shadow of its former self but not quite down for the count. My curiosity was soundly rewarded. I was reminded of the closing line from the classic Western film The Wild Bunch­: “It ain’t like it used to be, but it’ll do.” Sandy Gross of GoldenEar Technology wasn’t actively demoing the new Triton …… Read the full article

The 2019 Consumer Electronics Show

It’s no secret that the high-end audio segment of the massive Consumer Electronics Show has been waning for years as the industry has shifted its focus to Munich and the growing juggernaut of AXPONA. But this year’s CES was the death knell. After attending 36 consecutive CES events, this was my last. Nonetheless, it was worth going this year to see and hear some intriguing product introductions. Here are the highlights. In a radical rethinking of the traditional audio-component chassis and user interface, NAD introduced the M10 streaming amplifier.… Read the full article

2018 Golden Ear Awards: Kirk Midtskog

2018 Golden Ear Awards: Kirk Midtskog

YG Acoustics Sonja 2.2 loudspeaker $76,800/pr. I reviewed the original Sonja 1.2 in 2015 and gave it a GEA last year. As good as the 1.2 still is, the current 2.2 improves upon that speaker in dynamic ease, bass weight, soundstage continuousness, and resolution of fine detail. The main technical improvement comes from a brand-new kind of tweeter that combines a soft-dome membrane with a very lightweight, strong, and acoustically transparent supporting “air frame.” The result is a remarkably articulate tweeter capable of withstanding G-forces similar to those of good metal domes but without the oft-associated telltale metallic ringing.… Read the full article
