My Video Review: Let me give you a little inside information about FiiO. They never rest on laurus nobilis leaves, they never compromise, never settle or slow down innovation. It’s one of those stubborn companies that are pushing the envelope on a …

My Video Review: Sendy Audio and their sister company Sivga Audio always appeared on my radar on a regular basis, as those two always resonated with good looking headphones at affordable prices, that hopefully were good sounding too. A few months …

My Video Review: The best reviews that I’ve wrote, always started with a good story. This time around I’ll be closer and more personal, telling you about my loudspeaker adventures. Before my son was born some 8 years ago, I was very much into …

My Video Review: Sun’s shinning outside, my kid’s playing in the courtyard, so I can get some peace of mind, I’m getting up and a warm coffee waits for me in the company of some blues and jazz. Can it get any better than this? A courier pays me a …

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 …

My Video Review: Ah, it’s so good being back testing and listening to a nice pair of loudspeakers. I quite enjoy the active version of KEF LS50W since it is so user friendly setting up their internal streamer, linking a Tidal Hi-Fi account and then …

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 …

Soncoz Technology Co. Ltd. might look like a fresh and young company to you, but their lead engineers have years of practice, perfected in the digital and analog realms. After releasing several products under different brands, a time came for the big …

Are those vacuum-tube loving chaps of xDuoo ever sleeping at night? Are they dreaming tube gear and make them happen by the day? We’ll never know that, but I know that xDuoo are one of those guys that aren’t walking the same path two years in a row. …

My Video Review: I have a long-standing tradition of reviewing SMSL Audio gear. My first-hand experience was trying their unusual looking, but great sounding M500 DAC/Amp combo a few years ago. I wasn’t a huge supporter of its wagon-like look, but …

My Video Review: Hey folks. Another month is passing by and that’s music to my ears as finally, my seasonal allergy would fade away, but for the audiophile community around the world that resonates with one thing only: Topping is going to announce …
87/100
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, …

My Video Review: You got to give some credit to Hi-Fi brands coming out of China that forever changed the definition of entry and mid-level Hi-Fi. The biggest competition they have right now is…themselves. Companies like SMSL, Topping and Gustard …

My Video Review: Ah…the sound of a high-quality R2R DAC after a sea of chip-based Delta-Sigma converters feels like tasting an aged single malt whiskey for the first time. That deep, velvety smooth, indulgently sweet aroma reminiscent of French …

My Video Review: FiiO never ceases to amaze me, when they enter a new market, they don’t do it for the sake of it, they are not just testing the waters but are bringing their full arsenal. Two years ago, they entered the portable Bluetooth market …
