Way Cables Champagne Plus USB Cable premium
The Champagne Plus has a smooth, rich and lush presentation with juicy-liquid mids and a very gentle and airy treble. There is an immense sense of freedom with this cable, an almost magical and rather un-electronic manner of music-making indeed.

Way Cables Substance Plus Power Cable premium
The Substance Plus power cable honors its name by sounding quite substantial indeed. It has a sonorous delivery with very solid and full-bodied bass, a warm and liquid midrange and airy and super-refined, decidedly non-forward and very well-behaved treble.

Analysis Audio Epsilon premium
The Analysis Audio Epsilons produce a sound so clean, clear, open, transparent and so utterly uncolored that many traditional cabinet speakers can only aspire to.

Weiss DAC502 DSP DAC and Network Renderer – Part 1 premium
The DAC502 is an absolute reviewer's dream. It contains every function that one could ever want, poured into a very responsive UI with direct access to every function, topped off with utter stability. Soundwise, this is a dead-neutral, highly-revealing DAC with a solid, punchy, crispy and no-nonsense delivery.

APL DSD-AR DAC premium
While resolving the heck out of everything you play with retina-like resolution and lightning-fast transients, the DSD-AR simultaneously has an almost subconscious easy-going aspect, a certain organic quality that makes for highly lyrical music making and an immediate emotional involvement that makes one forget about all the technical details.

Driade Flow 405 loudspeaker cable premium
This cable truly is something else. It has a smooth, free-flowing, organic and highly involving delivery that, quite unusually, does not come along with a lack of focus or a reduction in dynamic slam.

Ayon CD-10 II CD Player premium
The CD-10 II impressed me enormously. Regular readers will know that I am used to listening to very esoteric gear but somehow Ayon always manages to stir my music-loving soul, and, as it turns out, even with their entry-level products.

atm-audio EPM-50 Class A Mono Power Amplifiers premium
Fabulously organic and highly seductive and in no way mechanical or electronic, these fully Class-A amplifiers eschew the type of overt control that can lead to the mechanical and clinical presentation that makes so many rivals sound rather uninvolving.
