ZenWave Cables and SurgeX ZenWave Edition Review
Cable manufacturer ZenWave Audio, out of Lafayette, CO, is headed up by Dave Cahoon, a passionate audiophile who has been on a mission to build the highest quality products, at the fairest price, with top shelf parts and materials. Reading on, you will see that he delivers on his promise in many ways. ZenWave products are designed and built stateside, and can be ordered directly from their well-organized web shop.Let’s get one thing out of the way. I tend to avoid cable manufacturers who tout ultra proprietary, pseudo-scientific features coupled with marketing campaigns to appeal directly those who crave exclusivity above sonics. Yes, there are audiophiles who shop for cables based on price (the higher, the “better”), dubious technological claims, and believe it or not, appearance and product name. “The Golden Dragon Silver Moon” interconnect sounds a lot more intimidating ...

iFi Micro iUSB 3.0 & Gemini USB Cable Reviews
iFi, the U.K. based high end audio company, has fleshed out their product line over the past few years at a pace that is impressive by any measure. iFi was founded as the more affordable arm of Abbingdon Music Research, who are known for some heavy hitting, and state of the art components. iFi has captured the imagination of many audiophiles and the press with their too good to be true prices, and original designs. The best part is even though they now enjoy a loyal customer base, they have continued to improve the products.In both my systems I currently use the Micro iDSD DAC, which costs $499 and may be one of the great bargains in digital source components today. I use it with the $229 Micro iUSB power supply as well. On my desktop I use the Nano ...

SOtM iSO-CAT6 LAN Filter And tX-USBhub Review
High-end computer audio is at the point of maturity where there is an entire cottage industry in for tweaks and enhancements. This is because as time has gone by, designers have identified vulnerable areas where noise, signal loss, and jitter can affect performance. Another reason is that is it has become a common belief that consumer-grade, multi-purpose computers are not the best environments for perfectionist audio. Unquestionably, the most common transmission lines for computer audio today are USB and local area networks via wired Ethernet (with WiFi approaching in the distance). Both are generally hospitable environments for audio, but they are not perfect. There is gobs of information on various computer audio forums about the issues that could affect USB and Ethernet, but in a nutshell it is sensitivities to both environmental and internally produced electrical noise which can cause ...

Carot One Titta Earbuds Review
Carot One is an intriguing company out of Italy that makes a suite of interesting and reasonably priced products. A while back, I reviewed, and fell in love with, their Ernestolone integrated amp/DAC/Headphone amp. I loved the ergonomics, the build, and the glorious orange finish. Since that review Carot One has added a number of new products including more DACs, headphone amps, and even a phono preamplifier. The Italian company kindly sent me a pair of Carot One’s Titta earbuds to try out and evaluate. The sell for $79, and come very nicely packaged. I spent several months with them and used them in a variety of environments with a number of different devices. I have reviewed ear buds from HiFi Man and Paradigm, and RHA, and the competition is rather stiff in this area, especially with the proliferation of ...

RHA MA750i In Ear Headphones Review
I’ve reviewed a number quality earbuds, all priced within reason, and designed for comfort and high quality sonics. Anyone interested in this product category will be aware you can spend practically as little or as much as you want. Cheap, plastic, sonically-compromised buds can be had for chump change, and “pro level” custom molded models can be had for a pretty penny. For me, personally, the sweet spot is between $150 and $200. Since my earbud listening is generally done is compromised situations like in the gym, airports, trains, or busy public locations, there are other things to consider aside from absolute fidelity. Important factors are comfort, construction quality, and the ability to isolate outside noise. Another essential ingredient for me is style in relation to how they are worn -- I much prefer a mechanism where the earbuds are ...
