The Focal Sib Evo Dolby Amos Speaker System does the almost impossible - a big speaker room filling sound with small drivers.

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’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.

The HIFIMAN RE-800 IEMs are some of the best headphones I’ve ever listened to. They have the laser sharp focus, detail and resolution only a single driver headphone can deliver, but has bass performance that shames many multi driver IEMs.
