B&W Zeppelin Mini Review
A few years ago there was a scurry among electronics manufacturers to bring an iPod speaker or dock system to market. Consumers soon had dozens of external devices to choose from: some good, some bad, some ugly, some bad and ugly. Claims of “room-filling sound” abounded, but is that a measure of desirability. I know people who can fill a room with sound by coughing or sneezing. Do I want to hear it? While mass-producers flooded the iPod speaker market, most audiophile manufacturers stayed away. There was a perception among many audiophiles that the iPod was not worthy of high-end ears and was viewed with disdain and suspicion. That didn't stop renowned loudspeaker concern Bowers & Wilkins from taking flight with the Zeppelin, a striking departure from most sound docks in design and execution. The Zeppelin dazzled with its airship ...

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 ...

Sonance Visual Performance VP89 In-Wall Speakers Preview
Sonance Visual Performance Series speakers are designed with not only audio performance, but installation, spacial consideration and a discrete look in mind.  The VP89 is the flagship of the VP series, offering the highest quality Visual Performance speaker Sonance has to offer. The VP89 is a subtle speaker in appearance when fully installed.  Thanks to new micro-trim grilles from sonance, the portion sticking out from the wall measures a mere fifth of an inch.  The grille is simple to remove, paint and reattach.  Rather than using a more invasive method, powerful magnets hold the grille in place. Rather than the carbon fiber construction seen in previous models, the VP89 has beryllium drivers which Sonance says were utilized in order to deliver reference-quality sound.  The 8” woofer sports a rubber surround and an extended pole piece, which helps to ensure a smoother response.  ...

Klipsch WF-34 Floorstanding Loudspeakers Review
It's hard to imagine an audio world without the name “Klipsch” in the vocabulary. By all accounts, Klipsch founder Paul Klipsch was a one-off – a man with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and discovery that resulted in speaker concepts and designs that still exist decades after inking the first blueprints. In high-end audio, few things last long enough to become buzzwords or achieve classic status. Audiophiles often speak in hushed tones of reverence for Marantz's 10B tuner, Dynaco's ST-70 amplifier and Acoustic Research's AR turntables. That list must certainly include the Klipschorn – Paul Klipsch's venerable loudspeaker design still capturing the imagination and ears of audio enthusiasts as we approach the year 2010. It's a remarkable accomplishment that spits in the face of such technological “upgrades” as Windows 7 and other patches to fix what was never whole to ...
