Audience ClairAudient 2 + 2 Loudspeakers Review
Audience LLC was formed in 1997 and is located in San Marcos, CA. In their relatively short life span, they have become one of the elite designers and manufacturers of state of the art signal and power cables. They also produce highly regarded power conditioners, high resolution capacitors, and the Auric Illuminator, an optical disc enhancement kit.  My only experience with Audience products is the Auric Illuminator, which I found to work wonders on compact discs and DVD's to improve resolution and help with problematic discs.Audience has also recently entered the loudspeaker market. Far from being satisfied with a conventional product, they have decided to take a different path. This approach was formed over a long period of time, with much trial and error, proprietary technology, and determination. Add to that a unique vision. Audience has gotten a lot of ...

THIEL MCS1 Loudspeakers Review
THIEL Loudspeakers have been in the marketplace for over 30 years. Longevity is fantastic, but having the universal respect of serious audiophiles all over the world is even better. Jim Thiel, the company’s co founder, chief engineer, and namesake sadly passed away in 2009. With a humble beginning, THIEL started in a garage in 1977. Fast forward to 2010 and THIEL now offers a full line of high performance loudspeakers for two channel home audio and home theater. They are all designed and manufactured in the USA at the company’s 35,000 square foot facility in Lexington, Kentucky.I have heard so much buzz about THIEL speakers over the years, but I never actually heard a THIEL speaker until an opportunity came to demo the MCS1.   Jim Thiel was a major proponent of time and phase coherent designs. He believed in the ...

Tyler Acoustics D4M Loudspeakers Review
I remember reading a letter in Stereophile several years back from a reader complaining about the magazine's lack of review coverage with regards to certain loudspeaker manufacturers. One of the names mentioned was Tyler Acoustics, an outfit I was then unaware of myself. For some reason that letter stuck in my memory, and here I am in an unexpected position to shed additional light on that very same “neglected” company. It was my pleasure to finally make contact with main man – and name – behind Tyler Acoustics, Tyler (“Ty”) Lashbrook, who runs the speaker-building operation from Owensboro, Kentucky. From the beautiful Bluegrass State, Lashbrook has been quietly building furniture-grade loudspeakers and selling direct to consumers for a decade. The speaker lineup is broad and offers something for nearly everyone, from home theater enthusiast to Joe Audiophile with bucks to ...

Audioengine A5 Powered Bookshelf Speakers Review
When I first began reviewing audio equipment I took the approach that performance came first, price came second. It didn't matter if a piece of gear cost $50 or $5,000, if its performance and build justified the MSRP and could enhance my audio experience then it's value and worth was real. After all, how much pleasure do you get forking out for auto insurance – a necessity, sure – but over the course of my 27 years of driving, I estimate paying more than $12K to keep my Toyotas insured and myself liability-free. I could have used that money for serious investigation into high-end gear or spread out among the many bargain-priced but high-performing pieces that seem to find me. A few months ago, I had the opportunity to review Audioengine's P4s – passive bookshelf speakers that impressed me with ...

Role Audio Kayak Bookshelf Speakers Review
Going green is becoming a popular choice for consumers looking to lessen their ecological footprint on planet earth. Small changes made by many, over time, can make big differences. This is a wagon that needs no band: reduce, reuse, recycle and repeat. While the Green Revolution is still in its relative infancy, many consumers and companies are already changing their directives to reflect a commitment to greener living.  While researching new and recent audio gear, I came across Role's Web site (www.roleaudio.com ) and was drawn in by the company's alternative “green” speaker offerings. “Use the latest technology and the least amount of drivers, crossover parts, and materials to deliver big speaker performance in the smallest possible cabinet designs.” That's part of Role Audio's credo; it's other is a commitment to manufacturing eco-friendly audio gear. Role is using certified green ...
