    Logitech z623 THX certified 2.1 speaker review

    I had a chance to take a really good look at the THX certified 2.1 z623 speakers from Logitech. The box was pretty hefty so I had some hope that they might sound pretty good. Out of the gate I wasn’t expecting too much for two reasons. 1) they are small speakers...

    Dynaudio Esotec System 242 Review

    The Esotec System 242 is a pretty typical 2-way system in terms of installation, and was easy to set up. To my benefit, I still had the baffles from the System 240MKll’s I’d tested earlier. They were an exact fit for this system. While my installation was easy, I must warn you...

    Pioneer Stage 2 Package Review

    For the most part, we review single items. Rarely do we conduct a system review. But that’s what we’re doing this time. There’s a good reason to. After all Pioneer has gone through a huge marketing shift this year. They have completed a thorough revamping of their own website and they were...

    Rockford Fosgate Prime System Review

    With the economy being what it is now, everyone’s looking for a bargain, for value. That’s the reason why a person would buy a Toyota Camry. It’s not exactly an exciting ride, but it’s relatively inexpensive, reliable and not without some aesthetic appeal—"some" being the key word there. After a while, this...

    Audison AV K6 VOCE 6.5” Component Set Review

    A few years ago I had the pleasure of auditioning a set of components from Elettromedia, the Hertz MLK165’s. I was quite impressed with the set, and now here we have the Audison AV K6 VOCE components from the same parent company. These components are a less expensive than the MLK165s were....

    Hertz MLK 165 Component Set Review

    When I started installing car audio professionally in the late ’70s, if you truly wanted high-quality sound for your audio system there were very few domestic speaker choices. Back then you had to go with European drivers to achieve these hi-fidelity goals. Since then many players have come and gone, both domestically...

    Wilson Audio Thor's Hammer Subwoofer Review

    The Basics: With a cabinet measuring 59” H x 20” W x 25.5 D and weighing in at 412 lbs., sound is the only big thing that Thor’s Hammer from Wilson Audio brings. At its core, Thor’s Hammer has two 15” woofers with a dual-spider cone design (based on long-throw woofers) that...

    Velodyne SPL-1200R Subwoofer Review

    Velodyne Acoustics is arguably the most well known subwoofer manufacturer in the world.  In the early 1980’s, a Velodyne subwoofer was simply the subwoofer to own.  If you wanted the best subwoofer made, you purchased a Velodyne – end of story.  At that time, the Velodyne ULD Series set the standard in...

    JBL L Series Floorstanding Speakers Review

    “Study your history, whoever don’t, I pity the fool like Mr. T.”, boomed out of the JBL L Series Floorstanding Speakers and the grin on my face could be seen from the floor below. As MF DOOM’s quirky, syncopated flow continued to assault my eardrums I couldn’t help but notice that a...

    Cerwin Vega XLS Series Speakers Review

    Cerwin Vega produces reliably and usually without flash or pomp. Much like the Tim Duncan of the speaker industry, their fans can be found in the local tavern or frat house yelling back loudly into the speaker set assaulting their ear drums. A reputation Cerwin Vega seems to nurture and expect to...

    Hegel HD10 DAC Review

    I’m pleased to see a number of high-end audio manufacturers designing equipment for computer audio use. Even more encouraging is watching a brand hitherto unavailable make its entry. Hegel (www.hegel.com) is a Norwegian hi-fi company whose products have recently been introduced into the United States thanks to the efforts of national sales...
