Métronome Technologie Launches Their World-Class Kalista
Musical revelations in Vienna!
Coverage By Greg Weaver
Thursday morning, November 16th (2023) found myself on an
airplane bound for Vienna, Austria. I had been invited to the private launch
event for the new flagship Kalista Mantax DAC, to be held at the Adagio Vienna
City Hotel on Saturday, November 18th. The Adagio Vienna City sits just south of the
arm of the nearby Danube River, and just immediately west of where the Wiental
Kanal flows into it, bordering Vienna's city center. This places it just inside what is known as "The Ring," the
popular name given to a series of wide tree-lined boulevards that encircle
nearly the entire center of the city. "The Ring" is about six and a half
kilometers long (~ four miles) and arguably offers more historical sights lining
its edges than any other road in the world.

LampizatOr Pacific 2 DAC Review
One of the best values for a high-performance DAC.
Review By Dr. Matthew Clott
When LampizatOr came out with
their state-of-the-art $49,000 Horizon assault on DAC'dom, they had a larger
plan in mind. The Horizon was the first in an entirely new redesign of
LampizatOr's take on building a digital-to-analog converter. Everything learned
from their first Big7 through the Golden Gate to the Pacific, was a foundation
upon which the next generation of LampizatOr would be based. Somewhere during
the past few years, it became apparent that they had taken their current designs
and engineering schematics to the limits of what those circuits could yield. To progress and advance LampizatOr into the future, a
completely new engine, circuits, power supplies, and enclosure would be needed;
and the Horizon was born. Moving forward, all of their new products will benefit
from design principles inherent in the Horizon.

Aric Audio Transcend Push Pull Amplifier Review
An enlightening listening experience!
Review By Bob Grossman
In today's machine-driven, highly commoditized world, the sheer number of
hand-crafted artisanal products appears to be ultimately going the way of the
dodo bird — heading toward extinction. Thankfully, the Aric Audio Transcend
Push Pull amplifier from the genius of Aric Kimball is an exception to this
rule. Another exception that comes to mind is Rolls-Royce. While it now exists
under the corporate umbrella of parent company BMW, Rolls defiantly maintains a
great level of independence, continuing to offer buyers an unusually wide array
of customization options to satisfy each buyer's unique desires. And so it goes with Aric Audio. Based out of a small suburb in
western Massachusetts, for more than 15 years Aric Kimball has specialized in
custom, hand-built, superbly crafted audio gear. Fortunately, due partly to
Aric's direct-to-consumer business model, one need not have a Rolls-Royce budget
to afford the luxury of such exceptional quality audio components. This is a
high-value proposition indeed.
