playGo USB Review
“Computer audio” is the current favorite buzz phrase in high end audio. Ironically, non audiophiles are probably not too familiar with the term since playing music files from a computer, internet radio, or some form of a streaming service are daily activities. Since most listeners are not audiophiles, convenience and easy access to music are far more important than quaint notions of high fidelity sound. But nowhere is it written that you can’t have the best of both worlds; great sound and convenience. Forget complicated set ups with USB DAC’s, expensive playback software and esoteric computer tweaks. Many just want to hit “play” and hear files stored on their hard drives without jumping through hoops, but with high fidelity sound.Some high end audio companies have heard the call, offering wireless streaming built into audiophile components. There have even been cheaper ...

Paradigm MilleniaOne 5.0 System and SE Subwoofer Review
AVRev Readers know it is no secret I am an admirer of Paradigm for their reasonably priced, great sounding loudspeakers. Their product line is extremely deep, with state of the art statement speakers at the top, as well as “lifestyle”, compact, yet highly engineered and attractive looking monitors and subwoofers.  I was offered a chance to review Paradigm’s newish MilleniaOne series speakers, which consist of two MilleniaOne front left and right satellites, one MilleniaOne Center Channel speaker, and two MilleniaOne Surrounds. There is a matching sub available, but I received a Special Edition (SE) subwoofer (which usually pairs with the previously reviewed SE 1 Monitors), along with the Paradigm  PBK-1 (Pefect Bass Kit) to use with the system.The speakers are small, measuring 7.75" tall, 4.5" wide and 5.75" deep. They feature a die-cast aluminum enclosure with a high gloss finish ...

Pro-Ject Pre Box Preamplifier and Head Box II Headphone Amplifier Review
Pro-Ject Audio Systems celebrates its 20th year in 2011. The Austrian based company has been one of my very favorite Hi-Fi entities for a number of reasons. They offer off the charts value, great designs, and components with uniquely small footprints.  Pro-Ject products are also known for an elegant simplicity and long term reliability. Pro-Ject may be best known for their affordable turntables and phono accessories, but they also offer a full line of components including amplifiers, preamps, Digital Audio Converters, iPod docks, CD players, speakers, and cables. They have even introduced a digital music streamer.Pro-Ject was founded by Heinz Lichtenegger, a former Hi-Fi shop owner who was motivated to offer his clients fairly priced, great sounding, and ergonomic audio gear. Pro-Ject has some very specific design and business philosophies that I find impressive. First, they claim “less (features) = ...

Paradigm SE 1 Loudspeakers Review
Canadian speaker manufacturer Paradigm has been at it  for over 25 years. And by “at it” I mean designing.award winning loud speakers across all price points and for every conceivable application. Full disclosure, I have admired Paradigm for a long time. A few years ago, I bought a pair of Paradigm Atoms, probably one of the best speakers made under $500 and I helped  friend buy a pair of Studio 60’s floor standers, and came away with even more impressed with the company and its offerings. I felt the Studio 60 compared very favorably with speakers costing at least 2 or 3 times as much. Last year, I reviewed the Monitor 9  V.6 floorstander , and ended up buying the review pair for my home theater set up.The company offers speakers for every level of audiophile and home theater enthusiast.  ...

Pathos Logos Integrated Amplifier Review
Pathos is an audio company headquartered in northern Italy, in the city of Vicenza. It so happens the region is a hotbed for fashion and jewelry, and Pathos accurately describes its wares as “hi-fi jewelry – small monuments.” When I spoke with John Bevier of Audio Plus Services, the North American distributor of Pathos and other high-end brands, he told me a little about Pathos' history. The company was started by three Italian gents - Gaetano Zanini, Gianni Borinato and Paul Andriolo. The trio shared a passion for audio and used their collective talents to design a new amplifier circuit, which led to the creation of Pathos' first amplifier, the T.T. This amp incorporated Pathos' own INPOL Class A feedback-free circuitry, a mix of tube and solid state that didn't manipulate the audio signal. The result was the mellowness and ...
