If you are searching for a way to make the music from your smartphone/DAP sound better, or if you need to drive some less efficient headphones, iFi Audio submits the xDSD portable DAC/Amp for your consideration. It looks to be an impressive little beast that is barely bigger than a deck of cards.
Today, I’ll be checking out my first Dolby Vision-capable display, VIZIO’s P65-F1. It’s a 65” Ultra HD television with HDR10, Dolby Vision, a full-array LED backlight with 100 zones, and an impressive suite of apps to stream content. It should delight videophiles and cord-cutters alike.
PSB M4U TW1 Earphones are all-new wireless in-ear monitors with the latest Bluetooth technology. They look strikingly handsome with a sound quality that is engaging and non-fatiguing. They are also very comfortable, secure-fitting, and water-resistant.
It may be time to replace your phono cartridge, perhaps even a modest upgrade. Sumiko gives you many options and with the introduction of six new models, it may be time to consider this 40-year-old brand.
The NAD VISO HP70 headphone is the fraternal twin to the PSB M4U 8. Both have essentially the same internal components and specs, and both are equipped with the latest iteration of Paul Barton’s RoomFeel tuning. That is where the similarities end however, as their external design and aesthetics are about as different as can be.
The Legacy Foundation Subwoofer has dual 12” active drivers mated to a pair of 12” super long throw passive radiators. The sub is powered by an ICEpower® Class D amp that can pump out 30 amperes of current (1,000 watts power rating). The cabinet design is like a tower which maintains a small footprint.
For premium sound from home theater separates, the NAD M17 V2 Surround Sound Preamp Processor merits serious consideration. It brings supremely accurate and detailed audio to that special place occupied by only the finest audio components.
If wireless noise cancelling headphones happen to be on your purchasing radar, the Bowers & Wilkins PX are definitely worth your time and consideration. They offer rakishly good looks, advanced design and more than a few clever touches to augment their compelling sound quality.
The Optoma UHD51A Ultra HD DLP Projector offers 3840x2160 resolution, HDR10, 3D, and 2400 lumens in a compact chassis for less than $1700. It also includes a built-in media player and voice control via Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. I’ll be checking it out today.
The EluneVision Reference Studio 4K NanoEdge screen is designed with a thin frame for performance and luxury. As a near-perfect Lambertian diffuser with zero surface texture, the finest details of the 4K home video format will be seen from all seats.
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.
