Stager Silver Solids Interconnects REVIEW
Very few categories in high end, perfectionist audio are as controversial as cables. There are endless debates about silver or copper,shielded or not, soldered or crimped, cryo’d or not, and probably dozens more age old arguments. Only one aspect of the whole topic of cables is not up for debate, and that is you need them to connect your components and speakers, like it or not. One design choice that I myself have never thought too much about it is stranded wire vs. solid core wire. As a matter of fact, I purchased all the cables in my system based on listening evaluations rather than design features.  I chose interconnect cables with silver conductors because I thought they sounded better. Same goes for my speaker cables, which have a network attached box to reduce bandwidth, and with it, supposedly noise. ...

 DH Labs White Lightning, Odyssey, & Encore Cables Review
DH Labs is one of my favorite audio cable makers. As a matter of fact, their digital cables and the silver Revelation interconnect are two of my references. They have been at the top of my list for a number of reasons. First, they actually design and build their cables based on solid engineering and scientific principles. Second, they do not engage is absurd hyperbole to prmote their products. Lastly, they are among the highest value products available to audiophiles today. Oh, and they just happen to be built to a very high standard and sound terrific across the board.I recently reviewed a set of DH Labs digital cables and found them to be reference quality performers.  Darren Hovsepian, head honcho at DH Labs, understands that cables can be very intimidating to new entrants into the audiophile world, and that ...

DH Labs Digital Cables Review
DH Labs, out of Alachua, Florida, has been in the cable business for a number of years, slowly and steadily building a base of very loyal customers and dealers. They also have a catalog of great reviews that seem to have a common theme, which is attractive, great sounding cables, offered at very fair prices. I evaluated the silver Revelation interconnect in part 2 of my silver cable overview here. It has since become part of my reference system after I purchased a 1 meter pair.  I found the clarity, resolution, and overall coherence of the Revelation very impressive.DH Labs also makes very impressive power cords and speaker cables, including the Q-10 Signature, which has been in production for over ten years. They have also recently added HDMI cables, and there are plans for a state of the art USB ...

IOGEAR Wireless HD Computer to TV Kit and USB 2.0 External HD Audio / Video Adapter Review
I’ve often wanted an easy, direct way to share photos and videos from my computer especially when I have company over.  I prefer to comfortably recline in my chair while narrating vacation photos and videos instead of having a bunch of people crowding around my computer screen and creating a claustrophobic environment.Rather than invest in a traditional projector setup, hassle with wires and worry about the video and sound quality, IOGEAR now offers a solution that allows me to use my 55” LCD HDTV as a second computer screen. I can also hook it up to my AV receiver via HDMI input and have surround sound along with the HD video. My computer is instantly transformed into a multimedia player that’s able to play more media formats than any player out there, especially since I can find and download any ...

Element Cable Apollo Speaker Cable Review
Evidence of my recent obsession with evaluating high end audio cable with silver conductors can be found in my two part affordable silver cable overview (LINK), and (LINK), and with my Kimber silver overview (LINK). Element Cable's Silver Serenade interconnect was featured in Part One of my overview, and I found it to be an incredible value and a superb performer punching well above its weight class. I also noted that Element also had a Signature line, priced somewhat higher, and meant to compete with flagship offerings from the very best. It is from the Signature line that I will conclude my silver cable evaluations for the foreseeable future.  And it will end with a bit of twist, with silver speaker cables, as opposed to interconnects. This will actually be my first encounter with a pure silver speaker cable, although ...
