Enjoy the Music.com Excellent Value 2011 Awards

(June 10, 2011) Enjoy the Music.com, an industry leader in consumer electronics information plus equipment and music reviews for approximately 15 years, is pleased to announce our Excellent Value 2011 Award! These awards were bestowed to products at T.H.E. Show 2011 in Newport Beach event, where after considering hundreds of products only nine were chosen to receive this prestigious award.

Zu Audio earns this award for their work in modifying the legendary Technics SL-1200 turntables, with a tweaked unit retailing at only $1000.

The AudioEngine A5 small powered monitors, priced at only $350 per pair, sound amazing for the price. When editor Steven R. Rochlin was on holiday for three months he personally chose these speakers due to their ability for compact size, ease of use and impressive sound for the price.

Vincent's PH-8 is well deserving of an award as this $400 MM/MC phonostage includes a substantial external power supply and is an amazing . Internally there are some high quality parts and was recently called 'A $400 wonder' by a TAS writer too.

Napa Acoustics NA-208A tube integrated, priced at $399, combines tubes for preamplification and solid-state for amplification to produce 25 wpc in Class AB. For preamplification a pair of 6N1 tunes is employed and inputs include aux, CD and iPod.

Kevin Deal of Upscale Audio gets an award for selling new old stock (NOS) Telefunken 12AX7 tubes at $225 each. These smooth plate Telefunken 12AX7 tubes might seem costly, yet over a lifetime they can really make a big difference in your tube preamplifier or phonostage.

An obvious choice to earn an award is the Spin Clean vinyl record cleaner, which retails as a package deal at $125. The package includes an extra 32 ounce bottle of fluid, 5 extra drying cloth and an extra pair of brushes.

High-end audio cables need not be expensive as Kimber Kable's TC series is $360 for 8 foot pair of the 8TC, the 4TCF is only $206. Their top line 12TC it is only $566 for 8 foot pair, which is what editor Steven R. Rochlin uses within his current reference system.


The CEntrance DACport combines a 24-bit/96kHz USB DAC with headphone amplification for only $399. Some audiophiles might try it as a USB DAC with built-in preamplifier to feed their amplifier, thus eliminating adding an expensive preamplifier. The unit uses the power off the USB port and is plug n' play for all major computer operating systems.

As the best value of them all is Robert Harley's fourth edition of The Complete Guide To High-End Audio book. Not just due to its low price of under $30, as this book contains a massive quantity of information to educate consumers about audio, how to tweak their room, fine-tune their equipment, etc. While many will choose the print version of this book, there is also a Kindle version and the book is available for download within the Apple app store.
