MartinLogan Cadence Soundbar

MartinLogan Cadence Soundbar and Dynamo 700w Subwoofer Review

Soundbars come in many different sizes and configurations, but the new MartinLogan Cadence offers many more features that set it apart from the competition.

While turntables have become so ubiquitous that the news of any new model is pretty much white noise, it’s time to pay attention. Starting with a price around $1600, the GEM Dandy PolyTable is George Merrill’s gauntlet and it’s nothing short of superb.

NAD M32 DirectDigital Amplifier

NAD M32 Direct Digital Amplifier Review

Enthusiasts covet sound quality above all, while others prioritize convenience. The NAD M32 DirectDigital Amplifier bridges the gap between audiophile and lifestyle products. This smart-amp incorporates advanced amplifier technology from the Masters Series along with an optional BluOS module that pulls music in from the Internet and your personal library.
