ZMF Vérité (Verite) Over Ear Open Back Headphone Review

World Premiere Review!
ZMF Vérité Over Ear Open Back Headphone Review

Technically Glorious!
ZMF's new flagship combines stunning resolution with uncompromising musicality.
Review By Dave Hanson
Since the release of the Focal Utopia back in 2016, the personal audio community has more than a passing curiosity about Beryllium drivers. Brands like Periodic Audio and Campfire Audio have dipped their toes into the fray and experimented with it in some excellent sub $1000 releases (the $299 Periodic Be and the $799 Campfire Cascade), to name a couple, but no one has really launched another ultra-endgame flagship with a different take on what beryllium drivers can do. That all changes with the release of the ZMF Vérité over ear open back headphones.

Alan Lomax's Historic Recordings Are Now Online

Alan Lomax's Historic Recordings Are Now Online
Alan Lomax's sound recordings catalog comprises over 17,400 digital audio files, beginning with Lomax's first recordings onto (newly invented) tape in 1946 and tracing his career into the 1990s. In addition to a wide spectrum of musical performances from around the world, it includes stories, jokes, sermons, personal narratives, interviews conducted by Lomax and his associates, and unique ambient artifacts captured in transit from radio broadcasts, sometimes inadvertently, when Alan left the tape machine running. Not a single piece of recorded sound in Lomax's audio archive has been omitted: meaning that microphone checks, partial performances, and false starts are also included.

This material from Alan Lomax's independent archive, begun in 1946, which has been digitized and preserved by the Association for Cultural Equity, is distinct from the thousands of earlier recordings on acetate and aluminum discs he made from 1933 to 1942 under the auspices of the Library of Congress. This earlier collection — which includes the famous Jelly Roll Morton, Woody Guthrie, Lead Belly, and Muddy Waters sessions, as well as Lomax's prodigious collections made in Haiti and Eastern Kentucky (1937) — is the provenance of the American Folklife Center at the Library. Attempts are being made, however, to digitize some of this rarer material, such as the Haitian recordings, and to make it available in the Sound Recordings catalog.

Qobuz Says "No" To 1996 Low-Quality MP3 Music

Qobuz Makes A Great Gift This Holiday Season
Qobuz, founded in 2007 as an online music streaming / downloading service that now specializes in Hi-Res Music, has completely eliminated their low quality 1996 technology lossy MP3 tier within their streaming service. And so Qobuz streamlines its monthly offering to one $14.99 plan ($12.50 per month with a yearly plan) that includes unlimited access to its entire Hi-Res Music and CD lossless catalog streaming. This provides music lovers up to 24-bit/192kHz streaming for Hi-Res Music and 16-bit/44.1kHz for 1980's technology CD, which is better than 1996's lossy compressed MP3. With Qobuz's maximum quality plan now available for one accessible price, Qobuz is the first streaming service to say goodbye to the increasingly archaic MP3. Neil Young, a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member artist whose early support and ongoing enthusiasm for Hi-Res are well-documented, says "Qobuz sounds great! Qobuz was one of the earliest Hi-Res streamers. Their new offer is another big step towards making Hi-Res streaming available at the same cost as MP3 streaming today."

There is more than 50 million tracks in certified Hi-Res or CD lossless quality, along with Qobuz's exclusive, in-depth editorial and metadata content. Qobuz will still offer its unique Sublime+ plan, now priced at $249.99/year and includes all the streaming offerings, plus a substantial discount on Hi-Res Music download purchases from the Qobuz store.

Stereo Magazine Issue 24

STEREO Magazine #24 Now Online / Free Download
This issue of STEREO Magazine features an article concerning tube, transistor, or hybrid with three amplifiers, all alike in dignity? STEREO takes a closer look at some of the finest amps one can get for just below 10,000 Euro. B&W Formation Duo multi-room system, Clearaudio Balance V2 preamplifier, Bluesound Vault 2i streamer / ripper, HiFiMAN Arya headphones, Technics SL-1500C turntable, and clean power supplies. STEREO Magazine's review of the Monitor Audio Platinum PL 100 II standmount speaker review is online. This compact two-way speaker from England deserves a price for its meticulous attention to detail that they haven't seen anything like in a long time.

Within his editorial, Michael Lang says "Maybe some of you still remember the 1970s? Hi-fi was a growing industry and it was prestigious to equip the living room with an "electronic altar" at its center. However soon the strategists in the corporate headquarters began to devise alternatives to stacking equipment towers made of individual components – and invented the compact system. In it, radio, amplifier, tape deck and turntable were united under one mostly flat and wide bonnet and the result was sold to the inclined clientele as a purchase without regret and quality without compromise."

Australian Hi-Fi Magazine November / December 2019

Australian Hi-Fi November / December 2019 Magazine
Australian Hi-Fi magazine's November / December 2019 issue has reviews of the Dali Oberon 1 loudspeakers, Hegel H590 integrated network amplifier, Sennheiser Momentum3 headphones, Vivid Audio Kaya 90 loudspeakers, Super Fidelity plus Top Picks too! Greg Borrowman's editorial within this issue of Australian Hi-Fi+ says, "Sometimes editorials take on a life of their own. I was recently at a lunch when the topic of sound came up and one of the diners mentioned that his son had given him a sound system for his birthday. 'I couldn't get it to work,' he said. 'And when he told me I had to use my phone to operate it, I had to tell him that since I had trouble using it to make phone calls, my chances of using it to operate the system were going to be very slim.' At which point another guest chimed in to say that his old 1970s-vintage system had given up the ghost and that when he visited a hi-fi store to investigate his options, they'd showed him only phone-operated systems. 'I wouldn't mind that,' he said, 'except that they didn't sound any good.' In his opinion whereas cars and computers had improved since the 1970s, hi-fi systems had obviously gone in the opposite direction, despite their being more music around than ever."

Mark Levinson No. 523 Preamplifier, Phonostage And Headphone Amplifier Review

World Premiere Review!
Mark Levinson No 523 Preamplifier, Phonostage And Headphone Amplifier
The No 523 is truly first-class linestage, excellent phono stage and impressive head amp.
Review By Tom Lyle
Mark Levinson hardly needs an introduction. I don't mean the man Mark Levinson, the audiophile and engineer who started building and selling audio components in 1972, back when the term "high-end audio" had hardly entered the lexicon. I mean the company Mark Levinson, which came into being in 1980 when Mark Levinson, the man, sold his company. Even though the company was no longer owned by the Mr. Mark Levinson, the Mark Levinson brand did, and still has, a reputation for designing and selling very high-quality components.

Be Happy! Listen To Music 78+ Minutes A Day Says Deezer

Be Happy! Listen To Music 78+ Minutes A Day
According to a scientific study commissioned by online music streaming service Deezer, a 'balanced diet' of music, with a mix of uplifting, relaxing, sad, motivating and anger management songs, has health benefits. Benefits of different music styles take on average 11 minutes to kick in – but it takes just five minutes to feel happier according to their study. Deezer's global study of over 7500 people analyzed how different music styles affect our mental and physical well-being. Deezer says that, "Our bodies need a balanced diet of nutrients to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Now a new scientific study has found the 'Recommended Daily Allowance' (RDA) for music. Global music streaming service Deezer commissioned scientists at the British Academy of Sound Therapy to find the dose of music needed by a healthy body and mind. This data has been used to create the musical 'RDA'."

The global study of over 7500 people looked at the relationship between music and our mental and physical well-being – by studying various factors including styles, mood and genre. The experiment concluded that, whatever your preferred choice of music, in order to feel the emotional benefits of different music styles you need to listen to music. The study analyzed how people use music to process emotions. Relaxation was the most common emotional benefit (90%), followed by happiness (82%) as well as overcoming sadness (47%). A further third (32%) of participants used music to help them concentrate, while over a quarter (28%) deal with anger through their tunes. Here's the lineup of their study:

14 minutes of uplifting music to feel happy (18% of your musical RDA)
16 minutes of calming music to feel relaxed (20.5% of your music RDA)
16 minutes of music to overcome sadness (20.5% of your music RDA)
15 minutes of motivating music to aid concentration (19% of your music RDA)
17 minutes of music to help manage anger (22% of your music RDA)

MartinLogan Presents Artists In Motion Videos

MartinLogan Presents Artists In Motion Videos
MartinLogan is pleased to present their Artists In Motion series of videos on YouTube. This collection of short films spotlights musicians who are passionate about their craft. Maybe you know their names. Perhaps you don't (yet). But they all share one thing in common — Truth in Sound. Where does Truth in Sound start? It begins with artists on the cutting edge of creation — composers, musicians, artisans, dancers, sound mixers, and DJs — constantly in motion, never resting, always inventing, exploring, and pushing the boundaries of their art. Their passion is to create and find their Truth in Sound. And then, to share it with the world.

"This film series highlights artists stepping out from behind the scenes to tell their stories, describe their creative process, and show us the reality of creation," explains Justin Bright, Director of Marketing and Digital Technology. "These professionally produced films don't overtly endorse the MartinLogan brand. They reinforce the essential elements of the MartinLogan mission by illuminating the creative process. The effect is compelling and authentic."

An Exit From The Entry Level:
FiiO's FH5 is a high-end IEM through and through.
Review By Dave Hanson
The FiiO brand is really synonymous with high bang-for-buck value in the personal audio world. For many people, FiiO is a launching pad – the first "audiophile" amp or DAC they ever own. For me personally, it was the FiiO E6 – just a tiny little pocket amp that was supposed be an improvement relative to my phone's headphone jack. Viola, my first dedicated headphone amp!

Cardas Clear Loudspeaker Cables Review

Clearly Cardas
A loudspeaker designer's entanglement in Cardas Clear loudspeaker cables.
Review By Michael Zisserson Of Positive Feedback
Cables are a source of much contention in our epic. So much so that some publications seem afraid to discuss them anymore. YouTubers will show you a coat hanger that somehow out-performs, or at least equals, Monster Cable. Devout subscribers to the esoteric could chew an ear for hours, pontificating that cables are all that matters in an audio system.

Qobuz Says "No" To 1996 Low-Quality MP3 Music

Qobuz Says "No" To 1996 Low-Quality MP3 Music
Qobuz, founded in 2007 as an online music streaming / downloading service that now specializes in Hi-Res Music, is completely eliminating its low quality 1996 technology lossy MP3 tier on their streaming service. As most know, MP3 basically solved the bandwidth and memory storage issue of early computers and Internet, when (generally) the fastest web connection was 56Kpbs dial-up (or faster ISDN @ 128Kpbs). Today, most Internet users have over 1000x that speed, yet hundreds of millions of music lovers are still listening to 1999 Napster sound quality. Why?

And so beginning today Qobuz streamlines its monthly offering to one $14.99 plan ($12.50 per month with a yearly plan) that includes unlimited access to its entire Hi-Res Music and CD lossless catalog streaming. This provides music lovers up to 24-bit/192kHz streaming for Hi-Res Music and 16-bit/44.1kHz for 1980's technology CD, which is better than 1996's lossy compressed MP3. With Qobuz's maximum quality plan now available for one accessible price, Qobuz is the first streaming service to say goodbye to the increasingly archaic MP3. Neil Young, a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member artist whose early support and ongoing enthusiasm for Hi-Res are well-documented, says "Qobuz sounds great! Qobuz was one of the earliest Hi-Res streamers. Their new offer is another big step towards making Hi-Res streaming available at the same cost as MP3 streaming today."

The new Studio Premier plan is a limited time promotion available to the first 100,000 new Qobuz subscribers and existing users, who will receive unlimited access to over 50 million tracks in certified Hi-Res or CD lossless quality, along with Qobuz's exclusive, in-depth editorial and metadata content. Qobuz will still offer its unique Sublime+ plan, now priced at $249.99/year and includes all the streaming offerings, plus a substantial discount on Hi-Res Music download purchases from the Qobuz store.

 

 

Mojo Audio's New Hi-Res Audio Mystique v2X DAC

Mojo Audio's New Hi-Res Audio Mystique v2X DAC
Mojo Audio now offers their new Mystique v2X DAC ($2,499.95) with XMOS USB (or RCA S/PDIF) input that is optimized for all operating systems. As trickle down technology from their award-winning v3 DAC, Mojo Audio's latest DAC also features the same ultra-purist non-oversampling direct-coupled R-2R topology they have become known for. The company incorporated much of the more advanced circuitry from their Mystique v3 DAC including S/PDIF input stage, demultiplexing circuit, I/V conversion stage and more.

Behind the new black anodized faceplate with blue LED is high-end error prevention versus error correction. You'll also find a true R-2R ladder DAC built around Analog Devices' famous AD-1865N-K DAC chip. To eliminate bit read errors, Mojo Audio's power supply incorporates over 237,000uf of capacitive filters and nine Belleson ultra low-noise high-dynamic regulators that independently isolate each stage. The analog output stage is direct-coupled to provide the most linear and extended frequency response possible by eliminating output coupling capacitors and transformers that narrow bandwidth and cause phase and time distortion.

Optimized 24-bit 192kHz XMOS USB input minimizes input signal degradation; mainly by employing a single-source USB input with three dedicated ultralow-noise Belleson regulators and over 3000uf of capacitance. The USB input, I2S output, and Femto clocks each have their own isolated power supply and all stages are completely isolated from USB buss power.

 

 

dCS Bartok DAC / HeadAmp For Headphones And Stereo Systems Review

dCS Bartok DAC / HeadAmp
For Headphones And Stereo Systems
Allowing you to hear music your way, plus make it fresh and exciting!
Review By Frank Iacone Of Headphone.Guru
The dCS Bartók network DAC with headphone amp brings the rarified air of true "State-of-the-Art" to personal audio.
Digital audio started in the early 1980s when Sony and Philips introduced the world's first CD players. The marketing campaigns describe the sound of CD recordings as being perfect and the end-all for music delivery with its compact size. Sony marketed it as " perfect sound forever".

Create Music With Jean-Michael Jarre's EoN Labs App

Create Music With Jean-Michael Jarre's EōN Labs App
Jean-Michael Jarre's new EōN Labs app ($8.99 @ Apple app store) lets you create music featuring this legendary musician. EON is an ancient Greek God associated with Time & Eternity. The « time » represented by Eon is infinite and unbounded in the sense of «ages» and «forever» says Jean-Michael. In cosmology, geology or astronomy, Eon is often used in reference to a period of a billion years Jean-Michael named this project EŌN, as it best defines exactly what it is – an infinite musical and visual creation, which offers each individual a unique experience on its primary support as an App: on each device, and on each launch of the EŌN App, you will hear and see a unique ever-evolving orchestration of the music & the visuals.

EŌN is a never ending, never repetitive, organic art-piece that will live & grow forever in everyone's own singular space-time continuum, at the tip of their finger. "Personally," says Jean-Michael, "I truly feel that EŌN is probably one of my most exciting creative projects since Oxygene. I always wanted to create a music specific for each listener and which could constantly evolve. Here it is. EŌN is conceived & composed for your own eternity!"

 

 

HiFiGo Moondrop S8 Universal Fit IEM

HiFiGo Moondrop S8 Universal Fit IEM
HiFiGo's new Moondrop S8 universal fit in-ear monitor (IEM) features eight redesigned drivers, fed by a triple crossover architecture. Carefully selected high and low frequency drivers are mated with proprietary customized midrange driver for 'Moondrop' style. Internal wiring is 6N OCC copper, while the connector is an industry standard 0.78 two-pin design.

For the bass driver, selected an extra back volume version of their distinguishing vented bass receiver, so the diaphragm is more free to move compared to typical closed balanced armature unit while still less distorted than normal vented drivers. Distinct midrange tuning is passed down from HiFiGo's previous A8 model, with Moondrop customized mid balanced armature driver. For upper frequencies, two Knowles SWFK BA drivers produce a targeted response with ultra-low distortion.

Hi-Fi World December 2019

Hi-Fi World December Features Reviews & Think Pieces
Hi-Fi World's December 2019 issue features a contest with your chance to win a Audio Technica Oc9X Ml Cartridge Worth £480. High-end audio equipment reviews include Wharfedale Linton 85th Anniversary loudspeakers, Devialet Phantom Reactor 300 loudspeaker, Peiga Premium Wireless 501 loudspeakers, Cambridge Audio Edge integrated amp/streamer, Quad Artera pre amplifier, Parasound Halo A23+ amplifier, Black Rhodium Twist Bi-Wire cables, and Mcru No.79 Mains Block power conditioning unit. Other reviews include the Thorens Td1601 turntable, Unison Research Uphono+ phonostage, Klipsch T5 True Wireless earbuds, plus Paul Rigby rounds up the latest audiophile music releases.

Within his editorial, Noel Keywood says, "This month is relay month. They're everywhere – upon us like fleas. I don't know what has brought this about, perhaps just happenstance, perhaps the flow of the river. OK, it's a peculiar thing to obsess about, but it does start to make you go clickety-click after a while – sort of plays on the brain. Why now? They've been around for ages. Quad's new Artera preamplifier has them aplenty, performing all sorts of tricks in conjunction with a micro-processor. I was taken aback at just how far you can go with this approach – turns out a long way, Quad show us. The Artera is an unusual proposition, purist analogue and very slick – greatly helped by liberal use of relays. You can find out more about this unusual preamplifier on p11 and all the many tricks it has up its metaphorical sleeve." See what's within this issue of Hi-Fi World at this link.

VAC Statement 452 IQ Musicbloc Tube Power Amplifier

VAC Statement 452 IQ Musicbloc Tube Power Amplifier
VAC (Valve Amplification Company) has introduced their finest amplifier in the company's 29 year history. VAC's Statement 452 iQ ($75,000) can be used in either stereo or monoblock mode, plus has greater headroom than previous designs for unfettered musical impact. An unconventional vertical architecture and lateral tube mounting play a large part in achieving this new sonic freedom. It provides the ability for extremely short, direct hand-wired signal, power, and ground runs. The circuitry exploits VAC's high speed parallel design principle, with smaller parts that are willing to 'jump' electrically and magnetically with the music says the company.

There are a total of nine VAC design transformers in the Statement 452, in aggregate weighing 120 pounds, for perfect coupling combined with lightning fast speed. VAC's Statement 452 IQ circuitry is fully balanced, with provision for both balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA inputs. VAC's Musicbloc design allows the amplifier to be switched between 450 Watt single-channel mono operation and 225 Watt/channel dual mono amplifier, without compromise in either mode.

We also have Senior Editor Tom Lyle as he finds that when his system was re-wired with Kimber Kable it "was coming as close to hearing the source using the most transparent, non-additive or subtractive sounding cables that I've ever heard in my system."

Headphone lovers will, ummm, love reading Dave Hanson's review of Manley Labs' cute beaute Absolute Headphone vacuum tube stereo amplifier / preamplifier. Dave felt that "Manley creates a Masterpiece that looks and sounds like nothing else!"

Ho, Ho, Ho, The Time Is Hear!
Roger Skoff writes about the coming Holiday Season
Article By Roger Skoff
The kids have come and gone, the pumpkin's been carved or eaten, and now it's time to start thinking about turkeys, family get-togethers, and the December holidays to come. For me, the holiday season mean two major things: presents and MUSIC! Starting right after Thanksgiving (only a few weeks from now), holiday music is going to be everywhere — on the radio, as background to every television program, in the elevators, and in the shopping malls, and on most of our turntables, CD players, and streaming services.

Art Audio Quartet Vacuum Tube Monoblock Amplifiers Review

World Premiere Review!
Art Audio Quartet Tube Monoblock Amplifiers

3D sound staging and sense of scale that will capture your heart!
Review By Dr. Michael Bump
The Quartet mono blocks are among a varied line-up of top-shelf SET and Push-Pull amplifiers designed by master artisan-engineer, Tom Willis. Well-respected as one of the top valve designers in the UK, Tom established Art Audio in 1988. Along with a team of like-minded craftsmen, including long time friend, Chris Lucas, the company moved forward with the singular vision of maximizing the inherent musical qualities of traditional tube designs.

Kimber Kable Carbon 8 Interconnects, Carbon 18 XL Speaker Cables, Ascent Power Cables, And Select Copper USB Cable Review

Kimber Kable Carbon 8 Interconnects, Carbon 18 XL Speaker Cables, Ascent Power Cables, And Select Copper USB Cable
Mega-transparent, plus satisfying every other trait one would expect.
Review By Tom Lyle
I've often said that the best way to test audio cable is to rewire one's entire system with that brand or model. This way one will be able to hear the difference in sound quality with any influence from other types of cable, and truly hear its affects. Kimber Kable (not a typo, Kimber likes to replace the "C" in cable with a "K") is one of the only brands of cable that I have found where I could replace once interconnect in my system, and hear a very distinct improvement of the sound of my system due to this one cable change.

Manley Labs Absolute Headphone Amplifier / Preamplifier Review

Manley Labs Absolute Headphone Amplifier / Preamplifier
Rare Form: Manley creates a Masterpiece that looks and sounds like nothing else!
Review By Dave Hanson
I had the pleasure of meeting Manley Labs VP of Engineering and Design, Zia Faruqi, in the CanJam exhibit at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2018. While I was more than familiar with the Manley name, this was the first time I had seen them in the personal audio section of the show, so naturally I was quite curious about their debuting flagship headphone amplifier, the Manley Labs Absolute Headphone Amplifier ($4500). Zia was very generous with his time, and walked me through the devastating and inspiring story behind the amplifier's creation.

My Own Triode Input MK III  --  Dyna MKIII

My Own Triode Input MK III
Dan remakes a Dyna MKIII to 'juice his lizard'.
By Dan Schmalle From VALVE Issue 9, September 1994
A remarkably bad graphic representation of a very pretty amp. Squint to see the Tung-Sol 6550's, new tube arrangement, Vitamin Q caps, new bias pot location, and cool paint job. Some of you may remember that I was so enamored of the Mklll's I modified for Chris that I wangled a pair for myself. As I recall I bought a Fisher 20A, swapped that and some other stuff for a MkIV, and then swapped the MklV and a pair of Ampex monoblocks for the Mklll's. Then I swapped a Philco Model 60 cathedral radio for a quad of Tung Sol 6550 tubes.
