Audioengine HD3 Powered Speakers & DAC Review
Multi-function powered speakers are all the rage in 2017, and no other company has been more at the forefront than Audioengine. They have been making affordable, great sounding, and versatile powered monitors since 2005, along with DACs, headphone amps, and accessories. There are a number of things I find refreshing about Audioengine. First, their pricing makes their products affordable to all, the designs are attractive for any decor, and they have an unpretentious attitude. What is not to like? Of course, none of this would matter if Audioengine products did not bring the sonic goods. And they do. The excellent HD6 monitors sit on either side of my desk connected to a Mac Mini and iFi Micro iDSD DAC, and I listen to this set up for hours daily while working. I very much appreciated the design improvements implemented into ...

Audioengine HD6 Powered Speakers Review
Audioengine has left very tangible imprint on the high end and computer audio markets. Their products allow ordinary people, who aspire to better sound, to connect a source directly to a loudspeaker with the minimal cabling and boxes. Audioengine speakers are attractive, engineered with care, and ruggedly built. Having heard a number of Audioengine speakers at shows and then reviewing their A2+ desktop speaker/DAC, it's safe to say I know a little bit about their products. The A2+ were one of the most enjoyable products I have spent time with. And, especially considering the bargain $250 price, they produce sound far bigger than their diminutive size would indicate, and are finished to very high standard. Audioengine also design and manufacturer several DAC models, bluetooth wireless products, cables, and accessories, in addition their line of powered speakers. They also make a ...

In Appreciation of the Harbeth Compact 7 ES-3
The Harbeth Compact 7ES-3 stand mounted loudspeakers have the distinction of being in residence in this reviewer's system for seven consecutive years. The speakers, in a distinguished cherry finish, are not only an excellent reviewer’s tool, but a music lover’s dream. These British boxes have been reviewed numerous times in print, and online. The speaker has in been the Harbeth line in previous iterations for a number of years, but the ES-3 really brought something special to the table.Out of the box, there is something magical about these unassuming classic-looking British monitors. Good stands get the best out of them, and my listening room they sit on custom ordered Sound Anchor stands. The stands, without question, are worth the extra expense. Good speaker cables are offer another payoff. I have have in rotation, depending on amplifier, Transparent, QED (as recommended ...

Thiel TM3 Loudspeaker Review
I’ve been a fan of Thiel loudspeakers going on almost a decade now. I reviewed multiple products from the legendary company. Their flagship, at the time, CS3.7 floorstander was one of the finest speakers I have had in my listening room, bar none. I also evaluated, and later purchased, the CS2.4 floorstander, which still resides in my system today. Thiel as a company has undergone some dramatic changes, including the untimely passing of chief designer and founder Jim Thiel, a change of ownership, and a revamping of the product line. The company smartly hired distinguished industry veteran, Mark Mason, as lead designer, and now currently employs a four-man engineering team. The Thiel brain trust has decided to offer up set of fresh designs that build on the Thiel legacy, but depart a bit from Jim Thiel’s time and phase ...

Bryston Mini A Loudspeaker Review
Bryston Ltd, the long-standing Canadian firm, is one of the audio companies I respect most. Their products are produced from a true engineering standpoint, with real world pricing, and backed with standard-setting service and amazingly long warranties. I have reviewed a good number of Bryston products. The BCD-1 CD player, the BDA-1 DAC (still my current reference), and the superb BDP-1 digital player are among my favorites. The company has gone on to introduce a number of new products over the past year so, including upgrades the to the BDA and BDP series, a headphone amp, a USB to SPDIF converter, a high end disc transport, and even DSD capability.Most surprising, the company has added loudspeakers to its product portfolio. The comprehensive line includes floorstanders, stand-mount monitors, subwoofers, in-wall speakers, and home theater specific products. Bryston obviously has the challenge ...
