Bryston BCD-1 CD Player Review
When I reviewed the Bryston BP26 preamplifier and 2BSSt power amplifier last year (link), I was impressed with overall level of performance, build quality and value. I concluded that Bryston had been in business, serving the pro audio and home audiophile markets well since the early 70's for a very good reason. They deliver the goods. They have been, and clearly are still, an engineering driven company.I was offered the chance to evaluate their very well received BCD-1 Redbook CD player. Even though Bryston is a relative new comer to digital playback devices, they quickly are taking the market by storm. Their BDA-1 DAC also has garnered quite a following. Now word has it they are coming to market with something they call a network music player as seen here: Link.I received a brand new unit in with a black ...

Benchmark Media has hit the 25 year mark, and has been an established name in broadcasting, pro audio, and more recently, in the home audiophile market.

Their products have included microphone preamps, DAC's, headphone amplifiers, and many other essential tools used in critical professional applications such as recording and mastering studios.Benchmark is based in Syracuse, New York, and their products are designed and built there.  Benchmark is committed to keeping it that way, unlike some of their competitors, who have gone offshore.

Boston Acoustics TVee Model 20 Review
At my home we're fighting clutter, which means taking a hard look at the stuff my wife and I have accumulated over our 40-plus years each and giving away what we no longer use. And that's quite a lot. There's something freeing about clearing out space and opening a room to feng shui it or you never knew. I also like the idea of passing something on that will be appreciated and used actively by others. My collection of media is largely audio-related, but I'm lucky enough to have a dedicated room to house yards of records, compact discs and vintage and newer audio gear. The living room, however, is another matter. It's cozy and smallish, with enough room for a TV stand and side speakers at most. There's too much furniture and two dogs to make a 5.1 or ...

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 ...

Bryston BP6 Preamplifier and 2B SST Squared Amplifier Review
After having reviewed a series of tube based components from Manley Labs, I looked forward to getting a view from the other end of the spectrum when I took delivery of a solid state preamplifier and power amplifier from Bryston, a Canadian company that has been making pro audio and audiophile equipment for 40 years.  Their longevity is no accident, as they are known for making great sounding, reliable, stylish gear. They also back up their reputation with a 20 year warranty, virtually unheard of in the consumer audio market.Up for review is the Bryston 2B SST Squared, power amplifier, MSRP $2750, and the BP6 preamplifier, MSRP $1995. A volume controlling remote control is optional.  The 2B SST amplifier is rated at 100 watts per channel into 8 ohms, and 180 watts per channel into 4 ohms. Both units arrived ...
