As soon as I completed the review of Campfire Audio’s Comet, I immediately reached back out to my contact there, requesting to review their step-up from that product – the Atlas. This product occupies somewhat the same form factor, but a distinctly different market segment, with this product costing more than 6x the Comet.
True to form and cost, this is a premium UIEM and performs in leagues with some of the best that I’ve heard – but we’ll dive into that soon enough. Read More
This one has been a long time coming. I've spent a lot of time with this product, and now have a much more holistic understanding of both the technology and its sound. This is a very full-featured product, just as the Pro iCan and the Micro iDSD Black Label were. And as an aside, iFi continues to get massive props from me for paying insane attention to microscopic detail in all of their products. But we'll get to all that below. Read More
Apologies for how long it has taken me to get these impressions up; I've had this device for the past two weeks or so, and have been using it pretty intensively, but have had so much extra on my plate, sheerly through coincidence, that it's taken me this long to get this slotted to post (it's been written for about a week). iFi strikes again with their second, and very new, addition to their "Pro" lineup. It has the same mind-boggling attention to detail that the Pro iCan does, and I've loved every second of using it. Read More
I had a lot of trouble writing this review, but not for the usual reasons. I wasn't ambivalent, nor did I find myself struggling for words to describe my experience. It was that I knew that as soon as this posts, I'll have to put these back in the box they came in, and ship them back off to Fostex. Read More
Fostex generously sent me their flagship for review, and I was lucky enough to catch them at a time that they had one in stock. Read More
Tom Christiansen, the senior circuit designer/engineer for Neurochrome, generously sent me his premiere headphone amp for a few weeks to review. I have had an absolutely stellar time with it. Read More
This is the premier amp from Neurochrome, run by Tom Christiansen. In conversation, he claimed the clarity was his claim to fame, and I think the clarity of this amp will earn him a whole lot of fame in the future. Read More
