Alexandria Audio Monitor Loudspeaker Review
Road to Bali, or Bali high-mids and lows... from a surprising newcomer within Indonesia.
Review By Ric Mancuso
I like reviewing audio playback offerings from other
countries. A few generations of gear have come from other lands that have
matured and demonstrated worthiness to be top contenders in the High-End
markets. I received on my doorstep two crates that seemed to come from an Indiana
Jones movie. Was there an Arc of the Covenant inside them in two pieces,
snakes, monkey heads, or loudspeakers? SNAKES! I hate snakes! Not. I think
snakes are cool and mysterious creatures. Audio equipment can be mysterious and
unpredictable creatures as well. I got my cordless drill with a Phillips drill
bit armed for the unexpected. It took me some time to unpack the secure contents
revealing a pair of Alexandria Monitor loudspeakers.

Coherent Audio Trim Tens Floorstanding Loudspeaker
Shining a spotlight on the music.
Review By Paul Schumann
my first year of college, I inherited my Dad's Dynaco ST-70 amp and PAS preamp.
The Jensen drivers in the speakers he built before I was born had fallen apart
and he wanted a simpler system to listen to music. Over the summer I worked at a
sandwich shop and saved my money to buy a new pair of speakers. When I finally
socked away enough dough, I went to the audio salon I had been haunting for
nearly a year. Surprised I was going to actually buy something, I got the royal
treatment. Looking back, I'm amazed at the wide variety of
transducers I listened to that day. I'm not going to drop any names, but a lot
of famous early 1980s speakers were in the shop at that time.

Rogue Audio Stereo 100 'Dark' Vacuum Tube Amplifier Review
Musical purity and natural ease bring out the very best in your loudspeakers.
Review By Ric Mancuso
Rogue Audio's designer Mark O'Brien has been on a tear lately
with updated and new models that are setting the bar higher for the competition.
I recently wrote about the new Rogue Audio Pharaoh II and the Sphinx Model 3 before
the Stereo 100 Dark as reviewed here. You might say, they all came first under the checkered
flag. Mark is a high-performance car and motorbike enthusiast, along with being
driven — no pun intended — by his passion for premium audio high-end sound.
I guess you could call him a gearhead. Hey, aren't we all at some level? Funny,
how speedy motorbikes are a thing with other audio designers in the industry. To
name a few, EveAnna Manley of Manley Audio, Sean Casey of Zu Audio, and Mark O'Brien
of Rogue Audio. I have an exercise bike.

Vivid Audio Kaya 25 Floorstanding Loudspeaker Review
A very special two-way, two-driver paradise for those on a 'budget'.
Review By Dr. Matthew Clott
Audio is a loudspeaker line I've known for some time, yet never taken serious
interest in. Not because I was unimpressed, but because other than shows I never
really had the opportunity to absorb what they can do in a proper room. I do
know that many of my fellow reviewers hold Vivid in high regard and my interest
has always been there. Recently, Bill Parish of GTT Audio took over import
responsibilities and invited me over to experience the entire line at his place.
Fortunately for me, Bill is 33 minutes away (about 14 miles) and an easy
highway-free saunter west into rolling hills and gentle farmland (not sure what
made it gentle, but it was gentle dammit!).
