Revel Performa M126Be Bookshelf Speaker Review

The Performa M126Be loudspeakers are part of Revel’s popular Performa series. The Revel Performa M126Be speakers are bookshelf-sized and are intended to be stand-mounted. Although the speakers can serve as side or rear surrounds, their price and performance make it unlikely that too many will be used for that purpose. These are superior speakers for smaller rooms where articulation, detail, and imaging are the main goals.

E.A.T. E-Glo S Tube Phono Preamplifier Review

High-End tube design phono preamplifier inspired by its successful but pricier predecessor, the EAT E-Glo S revealed everything in my system’s potential. Switching from moving magnet (MM) to moving coil (MC) cartridges is simply accommodated while providing flexibility for any system.

Paradigm Monitor SE 5.0 Speaker Review

Paradigm has designed the Monitor SE Speaker Series to bring their signature sound quality to the budget-minded audio enthusiast. Much of the technology that goes into their high-end Persona series has trickled down into the Monitor SEs, such as the X-PAL™ Pure-Aluminum Dome Tweeters with exclusive Perforated Phase-Aligning (PPA™) Lens.

Focal Sib Evo Dolby Atmos® Speaker System

The Focal Sib Evo Dolby Amos Speaker System does the almost impossible - a big speaker room filling sound with small drivers. This is not an easy engineering feat, but for small to medium size rooms the Focal Sib Evo Speaker system offers 5.1.2 sound with a deep low end and those important height channels without cutting up your ceiling.

Brennan B2 Review

The Brennan B2 is a new, unusual, and I think, a rather useful kind of product. The Brennan B2 can be thought of as kind of a personal jukebox… insert your CDs into its built-in drive, and the Brennan rips them to an internal hard drive, catalogs them, and makes them available for playback.

Emotiva Airmotiv T2 Floor Standing and C2 Center Channel Loudspeaker Review

Emotiva’s Airmotiv T2 towers and C2 center channel speaker are very impressive, competing favorably with products costing far more. Despite their industrial looks, the Emotiva Airmotiv T2 and C2 speakers not only excel at home theater, but the towers are some of the most articulate stereo speakers around. Two eight-inch woofers in each cabinet can energize large rooms at high volumes while producing such deep bass that a subwoofer may not even be needed. The air-motion-transformer tweeters are clean and extended without sounding strident. This level of performance at such a low price is rare.
