Mark Levinson No515 Turntable Review

I just had the good fortune to review a system comprising two cutting-edge Mark Levinson products – the No515 turntable and the No585.5 integrated amp. The No515 was fitted with an Ortofon Cadenza Bronze MC cartridge on its 3D-printed, Gimbaled tonearm. The high torque AC motor drives three belts that provide precise speed control. The deck also has excellent isolation properties and a full set of calibration controls.

VIZIO SB46514-F6 Sound Bar Review

A complete 5.1.4 Dolby Atmos sound bar system for under a thousand bucks? Is that even possible? Not only that, but one that includes a powerful 10” wireless subwoofer and dedicated surround speakers. If you are VIZIO, this is a goal that can absolutely be accomplished. Case in point: the VIZIO SB46514-F6 that we have here today.

Sony XBR-65Z9F Ultra HD TV Review

Today, I’ll be checking out a Sony LCD Master Series television, the XBR-65Z9F. It bridges the gap between reference production monitors and consumer televisions by integrating Google Play Store for quick access of content while being uncompromising as a multi-zone LED backlit display capable of 1800 nits in HDR mode.

VPI Prime Turntable

VPI Prime Signature Turntable Review

The VPI Prime Signature turntable sits atop of their Production Line, and is priced at $6,000 without cartridge ($6,800 in Rosewood). Packing many of the features found in their Reference lineup of turntables, the VPI Prime Signature is a stunning piece of audio equipment both in sonics and aesthetics.

Klipsch RP-600M Loudspeaker Review

The Klipsch RP-600M loudspeakers are part of the Reference Premiere series. Although they have only a 6.5” diameter woofer, they provide acceptable bass volume and extension. The real star of this speaker, though, is the Tractrix horn tweeter. It provides horn articulation and detail without the traditional horn sound.

Power Sound Audio S1510DF Subwoofer Review

The Power Sound Audio S1510DF Subwoofer is one of the smallest and least expensive subs produced by the company. But despite its modest cost, the Power Sound Audio S1510DF subwoofer, with its 15” driver, is one of the best sounding and most versatile products in the line. Since this is a downward-firing product, the driver is protected from pets and kids. And best of all, it is a sealed box design that prevents one-note bass and allows for even lower frequency response.
