Densen B-110 Integrated Amplifier & Darwin Cables Silver Interconnect Review
Densen Audio Technologies, out of Denmark, may be unknown to many high-end audio enthusiasts in the US, but in Europe and Asia, they are considered among the top tier of high performance audio. I had the distinct pleasure of living with several Densen pieces in the past, including the B-200 preamplifier and the B-310 power amplifier. Individually, and as a pair, I thought they were high value, high fidelity components, with good looks to boot. At a combined price of around $4500, they competed with much more expensive gear that this reviewer has heard. While I was impressed with this pair, I wanted to hear one of Densen’s integrated amplifiers, which consistently get rave reviews abroad.Enter the Densen B-110 integrated amp, rated at 60 watts per channel into 8 Ohms, and doubles to 120 watts per channel into 4 ohms. ...

Darwin Ascension Silver Interconnect Review
Darwin Cables very much impressed me with their Silver Interconnect, which I evaluated not too long ago. At its $295 asking price, the Darwin Silver is amazingly coherent and musically complete. In fact, it's still in my system, performing admirably. But my personal Darwin story does not end there. Tony Bender, co conspirator at Darwin Cables, sent me a note, indicating they had developed a cable a notch up from the Silver, called the Ascension, and wanted to know if I'd like to hear it and do a formal review. I said yes (of course). To “ascend” means to go climb, or go upward. It seems the folks at Darwin felt they had a legitimate breakthrough in performance via careful tweaking of materials and build. The Ascension's appearance differs from the standard Darwin IC in that it features clear ...

DH Labs Digital Cables Review
DH Labs, out of Alachua, Florida, has been in the cable business for a number of years, slowly and steadily building a base of very loyal customers and dealers. They also have a catalog of great reviews that seem to have a common theme, which is attractive, great sounding cables, offered at very fair prices. I evaluated the silver Revelation interconnect in part 2 of my silver cable overview here. It has since become part of my reference system after I purchased a 1 meter pair.  I found the clarity, resolution, and overall coherence of the Revelation very impressive.DH Labs also makes very impressive power cords and speaker cables, including the Q-10 Signature, which has been in production for over ten years. They have also recently added HDMI cables, and there are plans for a state of the art USB ...

Danish Audio Design DAC 05 and DAC 10 Review
My off-an-on trek through the world of Scandinavian audio components brought me most recently to Aalborg, Denmark, and Danish Audio Design. The company, led by music lover and designer Ole Nielsen, is a bit unusual in that it focuses primarily on producing Digital-to-Analog converters. As more music lovers discover the benefits of pairing a digital player with an external DAC – improved sound quality, most importantly – the market for Digital-to-Analog converters has certainly broadened and expanded. Danish Audio offers three DACs: the entry-level DAC 05, bigger brother DAC 10 and flagship model, the DAC 20. Nielsen sent the DAC 05 and DAC 10 for audition. The DAC 05 retails for approximately $1,715, while the DAC 10 sells for around $3,180. DesignThe DAC 05 and DAC 10 (along with the DAC 20) are handmade and built according to Nielsen’s blueprints using ...

Dell Inspiron Zino HD (410) HTPC Review
With the set-top box and Internet-connected televisions dominating the home theater space as of late, dedicated home theater PCs have become less useful from the standpoint of the mainstream user.  However, there's still a niche space for those looking for high-end performance and small form factor in the home theater, something that a simple set-top box struggles with.  The custom HTPC market has been dwindling due to the rise of small computers like the Mac Mini or, in this case, the Dell Zino.  The first iteration of the Zino (released in early 2010) was woefully underpowered for playing high-definition media and was panned by critics due to stuttering 1080p playback as well as a lack of a Blu-ray option.  Dall must have taken that criticism to heart with the revision of the hardware (the 410), the model that's the focal ...
