R.T.F.S. SiRRAH – Part 1 premium
The smartly designed SiRRAH units have a twofold function, combining the advantages of a diffuser with those of a bass/midrange absorber. The panels are easy to fix to the wall and the improvements are substantial.

Fezz Lybra Parallel Single-Ended 300B integrated amplifier – Part 1/3 premium
The Lybra Parallel Single Ended 300B tube amplifier is fast, articulate, clean, transparent and fabulously neutral. But when it is partnered properly it is also superbly emotional, highly lyrical, utterly non-technical and just purely magical.

Audio GD Master 2H Mono Power Amplifiers – Part 1/3 premium
The Master 2H mono amplifiers amplify the whole truth and nothing but the truth but they combine their truthfulness with a very high level of refinement, fluidity and finesse to make for a performance that is not only spectacularly neutral but also highly natural, rhythmically infectious and hugely involving. Oh, and these amps also double their output with every halving of the impedance. Intrigued yet? You should be!

Aqua LinQ Network Interface premium
Never before has a digital interface, network or otherwise, behaved so utterly consistently and dependently. The LinQ has the uncanny ability to improve the quality of upstream components but it does this while refraining from imposing any discernible character onto the proceedings.

ViRa Aidas Gala Gold LE MC Cartridge premium
Highly-sophisticated, super-silent, velvety-smooth and extremely refined, the Gala Gold LE is the most revealing cartridge that I have heard so far. It's rare to hear a cartridge so very precise, so linear and so highly resolving yet with an absolute absence of dryness and with seemingly eternal decays.

Digital Cables compared – USB and Ethernet premium
In order to assess a high-end digital cable, one needs to refer to a standard. But what defines the baseline? And how do USB and Ethernet cables compare to the traditional S/PDIF and AES/EBU cables?

Pink Faun Digital Interlink LAN premium
To many, high-end Ethernet cables are still a controversial subject. While plenty of experiments have proven to me that their influence is not imaginary, it sure is annoying that, so far, we have not been able to come up with a proper scientific explanation for why these cables can alter the sound. However, these differences are actually easy to hear and the Pink Faun Digital Interlink LAN cable with its unique presentation turns out to be an ideal candidate to take away any remaining doubts.
