Audioengine A2+ Desktop Speakers Review
I have been into computer audio since the time it meant ripping your CDs into lossy files to either load them up on your mp3 player or to play them back over plastic computer "speakers."  The evolution of digital file playback has rendered that scenario quaint, as cheap storage, lossless codecs, high-resolution audio, and USB DAC units have changed the landscape. Many audiophiles use their computers as serious digital front ends in reference systems. Those with more modest means and tighter spaces, and yet still crave quality audio reproduction, pair computers with outboard DACs and powered, so-called "desktop speakers." A recent trend has seen manufacturers equip these active speakers with consumer friendly inputs. Many have on board DACs. It must also be noted that the term "desktop speakers" is one of the more abused around. Some look like stand-mount speakers ...

Anthony Gallo Acoustics A’Diva SE Loudspeakers & TR-3D Subwoofer Review
My first extended experience with an Anthony Gallo loudspeaker was two years ago, when I reviewed the Classico Cl-1 monitor and matching CLS-10 subwoofer. Having already heard much about Gallo products -- from professional reviewers, dealers, and fiercely loyal owners -- I liked the Classicos very much, but, ironically, they were not the type of speakers Gallo was known for designing. That is, box-shaped monitors. In fact, Anthony Gallo has carved out a distinct and unique position in the speaker market with designs that forgo traditional enclosures and drivers. Given Gallo’s website -- www.roundsound.com -- round is exactly the shape that the company is known for. Not to mention Gallo’s unique tweeter design, which unlike conventional designs, do not use a voice coil or magnet. Instead, a transformer passes the signal and contracts the conductive surface of the diaphragm. ...

Genesis G7c Loudspeakers
Genesis Advanced Technologies has roots that go back to 1991, when famed speaker designer Arnie Nudell founded Genesis Technologies. He developed a unique and groundbreaking circular ribbon tweeter, and launched the Genesis One model. Genesis continued to produce highly acclaimed speakers for years and in 2003, Gary Leonard Koh, the current owner and chief designer, established himself as a force to be reckoned with, producing even more technically advanced models, building on past successes. Current Genesis models have impressed me at audio shows, and I have been waiting for a time when schedules allowed for a review of one of Koh’s designs. The Genesis line is varied and includes the amazing and very expensive G1.2 flagship model, the G2.2, the G5-series, the G6-series, the more affordable G7 series, home theater products, and a number of subwoofers. Genesis also makes a ...

KEF LS50 Loudspeaker Review
KEF, based in the U.K., enjoys status as one of the most respected, and long-lived, speaker manufacturers in high-end audio. The company has designed and sold some of the best-known speakers in the history of the hobby. They have multiple lines they sell direct and through an extensive worldwide dealer network. Their products range from statement, reference level speakers, to more modest home theater applications. Their economies of scale and engineering resources allow them to cover all bases. KEF is famously associated with the development of the British Broadcasting Corporations’ iconic LS3/5a two-way mini monitor. The BBC used KEF drivers to develop a compact speaker for location monitoring that could stand the rigors of professional use. The design was later licensed to a number of manufacturers including Rogers, Spendor, Harbeth, and others. I owned two pairs of Rogers LS3/5As; I ...

My Audio Design 1920S Monitors Review
MAD, or My Audio Design, is a British firm making waves with their extensive line of loudspeakers, ranging from mini monitors to large, floor standing, full range models. Offering custom designs and finishes, MAD speakers are quite beautiful. The company has been around since 2005, and their three speaker lines include the 1900, the Grand, and Noble lines. I had seen their ads in British hi-fi magazines for years, and noted various show reports that spoke highly of them, and I found myself eager to review one of their products. It just so happens that Colleen Cardas Imports recently picked up the line for distribution in the States. They also import Italian-made Unison Research electronics and Opera speakers, which have been the subject of several reviews here. They also handle Pure Audio, reference quality gear from New Zealand. Marc Phillips ...
