Bel Canto Design CD3t Disc Transport Review
Bel Canto Design, out of Minneapolis, has an the envious reputation of making a full line of very well reviewed Class D amplifiers, preamps, DAC’s, CD players, and transports.  Their products have a unique and stunning appearance. They also have a loyal customer base, and their products are designed and manufactured in the USA. The company is small but manages to distribute its products through a nice sized dealer network domestically and in thirty five countries worldwide. John Stronczer, Bel Canto’s head honcho, founded the company in 1990. He has a serious technical background, having worked as a research scientist in some very high tech environments.  Interestingly, when Stronczer founded Bel Canto, he was making tube amplifiers. Ironically they are best known for digital products and switching amplifiers. ...

Bryston BDP-1 Digital File Player Review
Bryston’s first two forays into digital source components, the BCD-1 CD player and the BDA-1 DAC , have been smashing successes, garnering rave reviews for sound, build quality, and overall value. Those products brought to the table what all other Bryston products are known for. Namely, highly engineered, superbly built, reliable, musical sounding components. I can vouch for this as I have had the pleasure of reviewing the BCD-1, the BDA-1, as well as other Bryston products. Bryston has obviously kept tabs on the growing popularity of computer audio, and the declining popularity of CDs, and optical disc playback in general. The result is the BDP-1 digital file player. This new product has caused quite a stir, and raised many eyebrows for what it does, and for what it does not do. First, unlike the Marantz NA7004 network ...

Bryston BDA-1 DAC Review
The Canadian company Bryston is one of the mainstays of pro and high end audio. I have previously reviewed their entry level power amp and preamp combo and their excellent BCD-1 CD player. Bryston gear is known as being exceptionally well built, clean sounding, and reliable. The company, with the BCD-1, made their first foray into digital, and several years ago, introduced the much raved about BDA-1 DAC. I have been itching to get a review sample fo the BDA-1 for some time now. Micah Sheveloff, Bryston’s long time PR rep was kind enough to send one my way. The timing was perfect, as I had several digital sources on hand to evaluate, and I just ordered several brand new digital cables. Recently I have done several “budget” DAC reviews, that is, those costing less than $1000. I found both ...

Belles Soloist 1 Integrated Amplifier REVIEW
David Belles founded Power Modules, Inc. several decades ago to ply his trade at designing high end audio components. Flash forward to 2011 and Mr. Belles offers everything from budget minded, but beautiful sounding entry level gear, to state of the art, ultra powerful amplifiers, and thoroughbred preamplifiers. Mr. Belles covers a good part of the spectrum, hybrid tube preamps, phono stages, and sweet sounding solid state integrated, power, and mono block amps. David Belles has quite a following in the audiophile community worldwide. His products are sold around the globe, including Asia and Europe. As a matter of fact, Belles has enjoyed a barrage of rave reviews in various British audio magazines for some time now.  Several years ago, I was in need of some amplification for a second system I was setting up and a friend recommend the ...

Boxee Box Review
Over 2010, there were a plethora of media players released in the consumer electronic space from brands like Western Digital, Apple, Netgear, Roku, etc…  Add in the iterations of digital cable boxes released with similar features as well as new Smart HDTVs with built in apps and the space is already insanely crowded.  In order to appeal to the average CE consumer, you really have to bring something original to the space. Enter the Boxee Box created by D-Link, a uniquely designed set-top box that brings file functionality and organization to streaming web content.  It’s a result of the evolution of a piece of software called Xbox Media Center, an interface designed for the original Xbox that cataloged all of your media.  This software is still highly popular for the diy home theater PC crowd, but Boxee has taken it ...
