Axiom M3v3 Bookshelf Speaker Review

If you have ever browsed AudioReview.com you surely must have seen the ads for Axiom Audio speakers. I have, I see the ads all the time. So I emailed Axiom and asked, “Can you send me a pair to review?” I sit here every day looking at these speakers and haven’t really had a good […]

Aperion Audio Verus Grand Speaker System Review

The new Verus Grand Loudspeaker System from Aperion Audio is their attempt to produce the very best speakers they can for the least amount of money. I have to say, unequivocally, they’ve succeeded. The Verus Grand Towers image as good if not better than any speaker I’ve ever experienced. The Verus Grand Center is a […]

Yamaha RX-A3000 Receiver Review

AV receivers are constantly changing, constantly leap-frogging one another in features and capabilities. This year Yamaha announced its Aventage (RX-A) line and, in the process, jumped over a lot of the competition. And not a little jump, more like an Olympic gold medal long jump. Much of that jump is simply in the way of […]

INEX Innovation Photon A200 Preamp, Photon Monoblock Power Amplifier and Photon Cables Review

Shared Review with Dagogo.com By Doug Schroeder It happens in the blink of an eye, in a flash, at the speed of light – the signal is sent, the music plays, and the ears are awash in waves of sound. The soul is stirred, and the mind feels… Free? Empowered? Thrilled? What is it like […]

VTI VSP Monitor Speaker Stand Review

Let’s face it.  Who really wants to spend $500-$2000 on speaker stands?  I mean, all you need is a base with easy to adjust feet (if you don’t have a perfectly flat floor), an inert column that doesn’t radiate vibration sound waves, a good solid platform to put the speaker atop, and something that puts the tweeters at […]

Emotiva Ultra 12 Subwoofer Review

“Subwoofer” – it’s like a magic word around here and makes all of us audioholics have little dreams of black boxes that cause our walls to crack, dishes to rattle, and rock our children to sleep… from the other end of the house. Some people think a good subwoofer will go down to 2 Hz, […]

HiFiMan HM-801 Portable HiFi PMP Review

Does the world need another PMP? Isn’t the iPod the end-all-be-all there will ever be for potable HiFi?  Can something be made that will ever displace the iPod position at number one?  Questions need answers and the HiFi enthusiast shouldn’t be limited to our dark dens and hundred thousand dollar music rooms. We deserve great […]

Audio Research LS26, Bel Canto PRe3 and McIntosh C220 Preamplifiers Reviewed

We will not be talking about the ability of these popular preamplifiers to transport you to musical bliss or to bring musicians into your listening room. This survey is not about the musical performances of these components and how the bass, midrange, treble, or soundstage is more or less like the “real thing”. Of course, […]

Electrocompaniet Prelude System Review

Featured Article from Reviewer:  Adam LaBarge It isn’t often one gets to review a nearly complete system and I jumped at the opportunity to do so, and there is good reason. Reviewing a single component, a speaker, a CD Player, an amplifier, etc. involves certain guess work, and that magic touch it brings to one […]

Electrocompaniet EC 4.8 preamplifier Review

Featured Article from Reviewer:  Ed Momkus I’ve been an Electrocompaniet user for many years. I own the fabulous Nemo monoblocks, which drive their namesake B&W Nautilus 800Ds (see my October, 2008 review in Dagogo. I’ve also reviewed the Electrocompaniet EMC 1UP CD player (December, 2009), which despite its age (first introduced in 1999) continues to […]

Jeff Rowland Design Group 102 S Amplifier Review

Featured Article from Reviewer: Adam LaBarge After a few hours of failed starts, I must admit, I’m stumped by how to introduce this review. Most of the time reviewers treat the reader to a little anecdote about this or that, or how the reviewer came upon said amplifier or speakers, or whatever.  Maybe even a luxurious […]

Velodyne Optimum-12 Subwoofers Review

Adjusting the controls on a subwoofer for best performance takes time and patience. It is always interesting to see ads for used subwoofers appear on the Web stating “only a week old” or “barely broken in”. These almost always identify a dissatisfied owner. I would bet that the owner did not take the time to […]
