CLONES Audio 25p Power Amplifier Review
Having travelled to Hong Kong several years ago, I was surprised to see a large number of high-end audio shops filled with hifi aficionados. Mainland China has been an audiophile hub for decades now, with hundreds of homegrown brands and of course factories set up by many well-known Western brands. Recently, China has been exporting excellent gear designed and built there, not as hired hands. Brands such as AURALiC and Line Magnetic, just to name a few, have been causing quite a stir.I heard about CLONES Audio, based in Hong Kong, from an industry veteran with very discerning taste. He had a CLONES Audio 25i integrated amplifier he wanted me to hear and, when I did, I was very impressed, and wrote about it for another publication. I subsequently wrote about the CLONES SHEVA DSD DAC and, again, was mighty ...

The Burson Conductor & Timekeeper Review
Burson Audio has been creating a buzz for seventeen years. Their extremely loyal customer base raves about their DACs and headphone amplifiers. The company is based in Melbourne, Australia, half a world away, but they have commendably developed an excellent and far reaching international distribution chain and dealer network. Audiophile buddies have told me on a pretty consistent basis that Burson should be high on my list as a source for review components. When trusted aficionados speak, I tend to listen.In conversations with the folks at Burson, I pieced together their basic design philosophies and general outlook. There is what can be called the Burson Approach. In essence, this means they take a pass on off-the-shelf parts and standard circuit designs, and they strongly believe in the simple audio paths. All of this to make sure the electronics stay out ...

Rogue Audio Hydra Hybrid Power Amplifier Review
I have had a fondness for Rogue Audio’s products since I reviewed the Atlas Magnum power amp a while back. I recently reviewed the Perseus Magnum preamplifier.  Rogue products remind of classic muscle cars that came out of Detroit in the 1960’s. Ballsy, well made with pride, and very distinctly American. Rogue’s products are also a great counterpoint to those audiophiles who complain about no “affordable” high performance components being made in the U.S.A. They often use this excuse to purchase products made in Asia, essentially rewarding manufacturers who take their operations overseas. One look at the Rogue price list on their website and you can see just how affordable their entry point products are. They also have a proven track record of longevity, great customer service, and accessibility. Rogue is well known for their tubed electronics, which makes the ...

Audioengine N22 Desktop Audio Amplifier Review
One discussion topic I constantly see on Audio forums and chat rooms is the “second system.” Most of us dream of having at least one room in the home/apartment that can serve as a primary listening and/or home theater room. But bringing a functional system into any room while maintaining feng shui can be  challenging. It can be doubly challenging for a second system. When it comes down to it, most of us are willing to sacrifice some performance for convenience; after all, who wants a 60-pound amp sitting on the dresser, no matter how great the sound? Audioengine's latest release, the N22 Desktop Audio Amplifier makes such sacrifices a lot easier. This 22-watt unit can serve proudly in any second system, even as “the” system if space dictates. Quick to SetupLike every Audioengine product I've tested, the N22 is ...

McIntosh MC302 Stereo Amplifier Preview
McIntosh has announced two brand new Stereo Amplifiers featuring the latest advancements in both electronic component and material design to delivery accuracy, warmth, and emotional impact in music reproduction.  The lesser expensive MC302 was designed to be paired with McIntosh's recently announced C48 Stereo Control Unit.  McIntosh claims the 300 watt-per-channel MC302 is the most advanced amplifier they've ever produced at this power level.  The higher power allows each connected loudspeaker to reach its full audio potential.  Helping ensure high-quality music reproduction are all new patent-spending speaker wire binding posts.Designed to be durable like all their long-lasting products, the MC302 from McIntosh is able to deliver full rated power to speakers of all shapes and sizes.  Further, the MC302 is engineered to run "cool" in normal use without an extraneous noise from the connected chassis or speakers.  This unit uses ...
