My Video Review: Were you ever surprised by something you’ve haven’t heard of? It happened so many times in my life, not only in Hi-Fi. Having big budgets for expensive marketing, some huge banners waving on top of the tallest buildings or the …

Whoever read my comparative tests with loudspeakers of up to 500 USD and up to 1000 USD, understood too well that good old Sandu hunts a pair of upper-class speakers. At one point, however, this mission had become too tiring. I have taken home many …
I already warmed my ears and wake up my neurons listening to good music from the previous comparative test of bookshelf speakers up to 500 USD that you can read right here. I hope my curiosity will not kill me as it killed the cat but I already done …

My Video Review: Don’t ask me why the most covered manufacturer I have around here is Topping Audio, but if you do…it wasn’t one of my goals. You really wanted to know my opinion on most of their doings and the rest is history. I have no regrets, …
