Sonore microRendu Ethernet to USB Streamer Review
In 2016 network file players and streamers are king. This is because just about everyone who has done comparisons has found that mass produced, consumer grade, off the shelf computers are not state of the art, by any stretch. There are those who still pay for premium playback software, cripple non essential functions, tweak with expensive power supplies and isolation devices to try to wrangle the best from their laptops or desktop machines. The amount of frustration often seen expressed on online message boards is astounding. Users become exasperated with disruptive commercial operating system updates, hardware incompatibilities, and a whack-a-mole approach. No surprise they often to turn to multiple layers of software, so called “digital” power conditioning, and even further out there solutions. If one has a large digital library, and especially a library with more than one system to ...

Intona High Speed USB Isolator Review
It is no secret that digital audio transmitted via USB is not perfect. USB was never intended for high performance audio, but eventually overtook S/PDIF as the most common connection method. Virtually all digital sources components like streamers, file players, and servers have USB outputs, and no DAC manufacturer would be taken seriously in 2016 without a high quality USB input. USB has several key advantages over S/PDIF. First, it allows the DAC to acted as the master clock, which reduces jitter and improves timing accuracy. Secondly, and probably of more interest to the average audiophile, it allows for decoding of any format, and any resolution. Everything from Redbook CD and 24 bit PCM to DSD256. As to be expected in the audiophile market, products related to improving the sound of USB surfaced several years ago, and it continues to ...

Wireworld Signal and Power Cable Review
I had the good fortune to review Wireworld digital cables last month. I say “good fortune” because their AES/EBU and USB cables improved the performance of both my systems in no uncertain terms. Wireworld’s designs are rather unique, and according to David Salz, chief designer and CEO, they are the result of 35 years of experimentation and development.Wireworld also sent me an entire loom of their signal and power cables to wire up two complete systems. We are talking about two boxes stuffed with cables! The cables were chosen carefully to match the components and speakers in my systems. The goal was to make sure the products were commensurate price wise, and would be synergistic.What I received in for review for the main system was a one meter pair of both Platinum Eclipse 7 ($3000), and Silver Eclipse RCA terminated ...

CLONES Audio Asher DAC Review
CLONES Audio, based in Hong Kong, has been one of my favorite small, artisanal hifi purveyors for a few years now. I was turned on to CLONES Audio by some very knowing ears. In my direct experience, their Gainclone amplifiers are something special. The products are superbly made, and the product line is well thought out.  The best part is the products are affordable. The proprietor of CLONES Audio calls himself Funjoe, and he is an especially talented designer and a very passionate individual. I’ve been around the block with a CLONES Audio components, including their 25p power amplifier, 25iR integrated amplifier, and others. I found the components to offer exceptionally high value considering the price, build, and sound quality.  CLONES currently has a very capable American importer with Mark Sossa of Well Pleased AV on board. This is most ...

Wireworld Digital Cables Review
Wireworld has been making audiophile grade cables for decades now, and the company’s products have been on my “to investigate” list for several years. This is for a number of reasons.They don’t pack their product line with too many products. They don’t churn their models. They have an online store where you can purchase or price out any cable in the line. They also have an extensive dealer network.Here is another reason I jumped on board the notion of evaluating Wireworld products: They offer an easy to understand product comparison chart for consumers. This allows a potential customer to understand what differentiates each model in the line. They also provide a clear understanding of how the cables are designed and built via cutaway graphics and detailed explanations of the design concepts. Wireworld also owns patents for their cable design, which ...
