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 ...

playGo USB Review
“Computer audio” is the current favorite buzz phrase in high end audio. Ironically, non audiophiles are probably not too familiar with the term since playing music files from a computer, internet radio, or some form of a streaming service are daily activities. Since most listeners are not audiophiles, convenience and easy access to music are far more important than quaint notions of high fidelity sound. But nowhere is it written that you can’t have the best of both worlds; great sound and convenience. Forget complicated set ups with USB DAC’s, expensive playback software and esoteric computer tweaks. Many just want to hit “play” and hear files stored on their hard drives without jumping through hoops, but with high fidelity sound.Some high end audio companies have heard the call, offering wireless streaming built into audiophile components. There have even been cheaper ...

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 ...

Bryston BDA-1 DAC Review
The Canadian company Bryston is one of the mainstays of pro and high end audio. I have previously reviewed their entry level power amp and preamp combo and their excellent BCD-1 CD player. Bryston gear is known as being exceptionally well built, clean sounding, and reliable. The company, with the BCD-1, made their first foray into digital, and several years ago, introduced the much raved about BDA-1 DAC. I have been itching to get a review sample fo the BDA-1 for some time now. Micah Sheveloff, Bryston’s long time PR rep was kind enough to send one my way. The timing was perfect, as I had several digital sources on hand to evaluate, and I just ordered several brand new digital cables. Recently I have done several “budget” DAC reviews, that is, those costing less than $1000. I found both ...
