Fritzspeakers REV7 Loudspeakers

Fritz Rev 7 Speaker

Now this was worth waiting for! Two and a half years ago, I reviewed the Fritzspeakers REV 5 speakers and found they "are not only good for the money, they are truly outstanding". I noted that they would benefit from a "little more sparkle and better resolution". Other than that, the REV 5 offered not only excellent overall sound quality, but are an amazing value.

YG Acoustics Kipod II Signature Main Modules Speakers

YG Acoustics Kipod II Signature

A lot has changed with these high performance 2-way speakers since I reviewed the original version of the Kipod loudspeakers. The enclosure was undated with hidden corner bolts, cleaning up the front panel appearance. There is a single pair of binding posts on the rear which fits with my preference for not bi-wiring.

Audience The ONE Loudspeakers

It seems that lately I listen to more music more often at my desk than in my dedicated listening room. This allows me to multi-task: attend to email and other business duties, talk with customers and friends, and listen to music, all at the same time. Of course, this is not quality time with music because the volume is necessarily set to a low level since my customers seem to object to my repeated requests to “speak louder”.

Ortofon Per Windfeld Moving-Coil Phono Cartridge

The Ortofon Per Windfeld phono cartridge was developed in 2008 as a tribute to retired engineer Per Windfeld who worked for Ortofon for more than 30 years. He was instrumental in the development of the MC 20 Super and Rohmann cartridges, and also the Kontrapunkt and Jubilee cartridges which were previously reviewed here on 10 Audio.

Time marches slowly in the world of high-end audio. We rarely see new products that can be called “revolutionary”. While there are certainly new ideas, new materials, and new circuits developed by creative audio engineers, the vast majority of products are updates and refinements to previously released components. We have two of these under review here.

RCM Sensor Prelude IC Phono Preamplifier

This is a very good time to be an audiophile. We all benefit from the bewildering explosion of extremely expensive gear, targeted at the few with unlimited budgets. Those buyers fund the R&D that enables trickle-down technology that makes possible great sounding and affordable components. The availability of great sounding affordable components is why this is a good time to be an audiophile.
