Loudspeaker Reviews

Aequo Audio Stilla premium
While sleek and elegant in appearance, these are not lifestyle products but seriously high-end speakers that tick all the audiophile parameter boxes. All it takes is a single demo to understand their brilliance.

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.

Anthem Room Correction and Martin Logan Renaissance ESL 15A premium
As my experiments show, Room correction is not only beneficial for heavily compromised setups and terrible rooms. Even when the speakers have already been positioned ideally, the results are still far from subtle.

Goldmund Satya Active Loudspeakers premium
The attention-grabbing Satya's always get the musical message across with any music that they are fed. They do hard-rock just as well as classical and are the ultimate solution for people who value aesthetics as much as the absence of cables and a plethora of audio components.

In this article, I will describe the audible differences between the LS3/5's and LS3/5A's.

Graham Audio LS5/9, LS5/9f, and LS5/8 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.

HFA Audio Setup History 28 – Speakers and Amps – Oct 2017/Dec 2017 premium
I had started a quest to find the perfect amplifier, for my Diva situation at least. By now I knew that there were amplifiers that are more expressive and lively than my precious Rowlands, but so far none of them was a match in terms of treble refinement and low-level resolution.

Disclaimer Any loudspeaker is highly interactive with its environment, the room that it is placed in.
