Origin Live Calypso mk4 with Multi-Layer Platter, Illustrious arm and Silver Hybrid cable – part 1 premium
The Origin Live Calypso Mk4 with Illustrious tonearm is flabbergastingly good! It keeps you at the tip of your seat in anticipation of what the next record will uncover but even though it is so very capable of unveiling microscopic details, it is in no way an actual microscope. Its full-color- and harmonically rich delivery is the antithesis of a cool or sterile sound. This is a music machine, designed to take away all the technical aspects to simply allow the music to come across.

Jay’s Audio CDT-2Mk2 and DAC-2 Signature – part 1 premium
Chinese-made products have not always enjoyed the same reputation as well-known western brands but, based on recent experiences in general and based on how these Jay's Audio products perform in particular, I am confident in stating that it is about time to change our collective minds about this.

Ayon S10-II Signature – part 1 premium
The S-10 MkII is not only a streaming endpoint and a DAC but also an analog preamp complete with two analog inputs. And, unlike many competing products, the Ayon's preamp can actually replace a very good separate analog preamp.

Graham Audio LS5/9, LS5/9f, and LS5/8 – part 1 premium
The Graham Audio loudspeakers have an absolutely fabulous midrange. Vocals sound incredibly natural and highly convincing and there is a superbly lyrical and immediately emotionally involving quality to the delivery. It's not only that the midband is superbly liquid, it is also highly faithful to the source, much more so than most other cabinet speakers.
