Trends Audio PA-10 Tube Headphone/Pre Amplifier Review
Trends Audio is a relatively new company that is part of the now established Chinese high end audio market.  They are also among the new breed that are trying to gain acceptance in Western markets. Many have already done so as you may have heard of Shanling, Melody, Audio Space, Antique Sound Lab, Eastern Electric, and a host of others. Chinese designers have been steadily improving the performance, reliability and the build quality of their gear.  Many of the products produced in China can compete with the most exotic American and European brands in terms of sound quality. This all spawns from a deep passion the Chinese have had for high fidelity going back decades.  I saw this first hand when I visited Hong Kong and Mainland China last October and was quite surprised at how many Hifi shops were ...

THIEL MCS1 Loudspeakers Review
THIEL Loudspeakers have been in the marketplace for over 30 years. Longevity is fantastic, but having the universal respect of serious audiophiles all over the world is even better. Jim Thiel, the company’s co founder, chief engineer, and namesake sadly passed away in 2009. With a humble beginning, THIEL started in a garage in 1977. Fast forward to 2010 and THIEL now offers a full line of high performance loudspeakers for two channel home audio and home theater. They are all designed and manufactured in the USA at the company’s 35,000 square foot facility in Lexington, Kentucky.I have heard so much buzz about THIEL speakers over the years, but I never actually heard a THIEL speaker until an opportunity came to demo the MCS1.   Jim Thiel was a major proponent of time and phase coherent designs. He believed in the ...

Tyler Acoustics D4M Loudspeakers Review
I remember reading a letter in Stereophile several years back from a reader complaining about the magazine's lack of review coverage with regards to certain loudspeaker manufacturers. One of the names mentioned was Tyler Acoustics, an outfit I was then unaware of myself. For some reason that letter stuck in my memory, and here I am in an unexpected position to shed additional light on that very same “neglected” company. It was my pleasure to finally make contact with main man – and name – behind Tyler Acoustics, Tyler (“Ty”) Lashbrook, who runs the speaker-building operation from Owensboro, Kentucky. From the beautiful Bluegrass State, Lashbrook has been quietly building furniture-grade loudspeakers and selling direct to consumers for a decade. The speaker lineup is broad and offers something for nearly everyone, from home theater enthusiast to Joe Audiophile with bucks to ...

Could you imagine a world without The Beatles? Life would be drastically different if it weren't for the enduring music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. The Fab Four changed the face of popular music as we know it, and the effects can still be felt today. However, despite their ubiquitous popularity, access to their music has been strangely guarded. Up until recently (September 9th, 2009, to be exact), the only way to get their albums on CD was to buy old copies from 1987, devoid of fine sonic detail, and many mixed in stereo when The Beatles intended them to be mono. Their songs still cannot be found on any MP3 download service, and, by extension, the group was MIA from any rhythm game, such as Rock Band or Guitar Hero.But that all changed when ...

Transparent PowerWave 10 Power Conditioner
The BasicsEssential to sensitive electrical equipment, power conditioners like the Transparent PowerWave 10 Power Conditioner delivers “clean” AC power for both personal and business use. Although sporting a minimalist design with a sleek curved form, the PowerWave 10 Power Conditioner is built with a solid, aluminum body. The PowerWave 10 provides a high-level of performance at a suggested retail price of $1,695. The PowerWave 10 is very similar in looks to the smaller PowerWave 8. However, looks are where the comparison ends since the PowerWave 10’s powerful 10 high-current, grounded and noise-filtering surge-protected outlets provide so much more than its predecessors. In addition, you will find it can create better isolation with its five filtered outlet banks. These features are 100% unique in the current market for home theater power conditioners and sound systems. Furthermore, you will find features like ...
