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."

FiiO FH5 In-Ear Monitor Review

FiiO FH5 In-Ear Monitor Review
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.

An ultra-light, highly carbon fiber baffle plates serve as the base for the driver. The driver assembly is mounted to an extruded and machined aluminum frame that remains light and rigid.

Ho, Ho, Ho, The Time Is Hear!

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.

VPI Industries Vanquish Magnetic Direct Drive Turntable

VPI Industries Vanquish Magnetic Direct Drive Turntable
VPI Industries is proud to debut a new state-of the-art Vanquish magnetic direct drive turntable ($100k to $120k). VPI's Vanquish turntable is a refined version of a model made by VPI's founder Harry Weisfeld. Advancements in direct drive technology is based off of VPI's HW-40 motor, aided by motion control circuitry and software. Vibration isolation technology is based off refinements by engineer Mike Bettinger. The Vanquish comes in the company's Reference tripod shape, giving the user the ability to mount up to three tonearms of any length, type, or brand.

VPI's Vanquish turntable is complete with their latest 3D printing ability, and thus mounted with a Fatboy tonearm (choice of Uni or Gimbal bearing). Hidden wiring gives a clean look, as opposed to usual LEMO plug termination with a wire loop. Internal wiring is by Nordost and connects directly into the Phono stage, thus having fewer connections between the cartridge and phono stage. The Vanquish Fatboy is VPI's first 14" 3D printed tonearm that provides both rigidity and resonance cancelling. VPI's Vanquish turntable also features:

• Phono Stage with multiple inputs.
• Every part is mounted with machined / blind screws
• Removable machined aluminum arm-board.
• Beautiful limited-edition ruby anodized components
• Removable platter for easy shipping
• Tonearm counterweight with fast / accurate VTF
• Vanquish stand that can fit multiple components

Within this month's editorial, Alan Sircom says, "The interesting thing about modern audio is just how diverse and international it has become. Back in the old days, the products of one country tended to stay in that country. Granted there were always exceptions (and many of those exceptions came from America, Japan, and the UK) but for the most part, the idea of a truly international audio system is an almost uniquely 21st Century concept. The big question is – is it actually real?" See what's within this issue of Hi-Fi+ magazine at this link.

The State Of The Arts, And Thoughts While On The Road

The State Of The Arts, And Thoughts While On The Road
Three-time Grammy nominee David Chesky has earned great respect for his fresh and unique approach to musical compositions, which span the jazz and classical genres. As David explores the world, he recently made an observation about classical music during his travels. "It is becoming clear to me that new classical music is doomed upon conception," said David Chesky. "Berlin, for me, is a metaphor for cutting-edge arts. A city filled with great writers, artists, intellectuals, and composers. But the mainstream cultural musical institutions of Europe are an insult and embarrassment to these incredible artists. These institutions recreate and sell European musical history to wealthy tourists while choking the voices of these contemporary artists. Every city I visit seems to have the same repertoire of musical works and operas in their concert halls. The only thing worse is in the USA as we sell not our own musical history but imported history, as if we must lack self-esteem with our own musical arts."

"In all areas of the arts, painting, sculpture, literature, film, and architecture, there is a genuine inquisitive thirst for what is going on now," continues David. "Classical music is the only genre I know that refuses to join the present with the rest of the world. What if we asked modern painters in the world to copy 16th-century masters all day? How creative would that be for them? But commerce dictates, and that is how wealthy patrons want the classical world to stay. Good or bad orchestras are now just only aural museums."

In conclusion, David said, "It's absurd for any critic that is truly a person of arts and letters to partake in writing and perpetuating the status quo. The institutions will kill off the very thing that any business, art, or genre needs to survive — innovation." David Chesky is the founder of the audiophile label Chesky Records. Producing the highest quality of recordings available today, Chesky Records has produced over 500 albums with highly accomplished artists in genres spanning classical, jazz and world music. HDtracks is a Hi-Res Music service also started by David that delivers the highest quality / resolution recordings to music lovers worldwide.

Xavian New Premio Esclusivo Standmount Monitor

Xavian New Premio Esclusivo Standmount Monitor
Xavian's Premio Esclusivo standmount monitor (€4400 per pair on up) builds upon the success of its predecessor as a top of the Natura range. It represents advanced technology hidden inside nature inspired, with organic shapes of the cabinet made from solid wood. The front twin reflex aid in producing deeper bass response while a sophisticated system of inner damping allows custom made AudioBarletta drivers to work accurately and as cleanly as possible.

A 29mm AudioBarletta tweeter with flat aluminum wire voice coil and soft dome has a copper ring in motor plus die-cast chassis. For midrange and bass, a 175mm AudioBarletta impregnated paper membrane cone is mounted on a die-cast chassis. Bitumen and other layers of cabinet internal damping aid in Xavian's Premio Esclusivo standmount monitor in producing sound accurately. A specially-designed Fase Zero crossover topology (drivers connected in series) seek to seamlessly mate the sound of both drivers to produce a smooth frequency response. Precision audio components within crossover include Mundorf capacitors and resistors. A front grill cover is included and magnetically attached to ensure an elegant visual style.

TACET Releases Wolfgang Amadé Mozart Hybrid SACD

TACET Releases Wolfgang Amadé Mozart Hybrid SACD
TACET's new Wolfgang Amadé Mozart hybrid SACD (0252-4, €21.47 + VAT) features Stadler Quintet K. 581, Clarinet Concerto K. 622, and Aria K. 523 & 524 performed by Dirk Altmann, Kei Shirai, Masato Suzuki, and the Ludwig Chamber Players. Recorded in TACET Real Surround Sound, the clarinet player uses his instrument as billiard cue on the cover. This little provocation indicates what is going on. Its common knowledge that Mozart composed these pieces not long before his death. But for Dirk Altmann, and booklet author Katharina Eickhoff, they're not the creations of an angel on the way to heaven. Instead, it is written in a very earthly environment with a part of includes playing billiards with his friend including clarinet player Anton Stadler. What happens when the clarinet concerto is played exempt of romantic, nearly religious enhancement? We hear the inspirations of a joyful genius! This hybrid SACD includes a CD, Hi-Res Audio 24-bit/96kHz stereo layer, and 5.1 multi channel 24-bit/96kHz layer too.

Pass Labs X250.8 Solid-State Stereo Amplifier Review

Pass Labs X250.8 Solid-State Stereo Amplifier
A powerful, detailed and delicate sounding power amplifier.
Review By Anthony Nicosia
Not too long ago (in a galaxy...), during July 2012 actually, it was my privilege to review two products from Pass Laboratories. Specifically, their very impressive XP-10 preamplifier and outstanding XA 60.5 monoblock power amplifiers. Both were a joy to have in my audio system and were sorely missed when returned to the factory after my standard two month review period. So when the opportunity arose for me to borrow their new .8 series amplifier, the X250.8, there was absolutely no hesitation on my part to jump at the chance to again audition a Nelson Pass design.

Rolling Stones' Let It Bleed Vinyl LP / CD Deluxe Box Set

Rolling Stones' Let It Bleed Vinyl LP / SACD / CD Box Set
Available November 1 is the very special 50th Anniversary Edition edition of Rolling Stones' Let It Bleed available on 180 gram vinyl LP box set / SACD / CD. The Rolling Stones groundbreaking multi-platinum selling album Let It Bleed was released in late 1969, charting at #1 in the UK and #3 in the USA. The Rolling Stones, at this point already a critically and commercially dominant force, composed and recorded their eighth long player (tenth for the USA) amidst both geopolitical and personal turmoil. The second of four Rolling Stones albums made with producer Jimmy Miller (Traffic, Blind Faith), Let It Bleed perfectly captures the ominous spirit of the times with the opening track "Gimme Shelter".

The 2019 remaster has been engineered by eleven-time Grammy-winning mastering engineer Bob Ludwig. Let It Bleed (50th Anniversary Limited Deluxe Edition) includes the remastered album in Stereo and Mono on both vinyl and hybrid SACD, plus a reproduction of the 1969 seven mono single of "Honky Tonk Women / You Can t Always Get What You Want" in a picture sleeve. The box set also comes with three 12 x 12 hand-numbered replica-signed lithographs printed on embossed archival paper, a full-color 23 x 23 poster with restored art from the original 1969 Decca Records package, plus an 80 page hardcover book with never-before-seen photos by the band s tour photographer Ethan Russell and an essay by journalist David Fricke. You can pre-order the Rolling Stones Let It Bleed (50th Anniversary Limited Deluxe Edition) from Amazon at this link.
