“In such instrumental passages, the aforementioned “Audio Note Punch” becomes particularly clear: Individual notes – even harmonics of guitar chords – are present as if they had received an extra portion of energy on the way into my ear, large drums sound dark, substantial, powerful and yet precise and fast. The audio notes combine rather […]

Ortofon SPU Gold cartridge

Ortofon SPU Gold Cartridge

Either way, I think the SPU should stay in production forever. It’s the only audio device I can name that lives up to the true meaning of ‘nice’ without any of the damning-with-faint-praise connotations that word has acquired. The Ortofon MC2000 is tonic for the brain – the SPU is tonic for the soul. For […]

Raidho TD4.2 Floorstanding Loudspeakers

Raidho TD4.2 Floorstanding Loudspeakers

These speakers brought out the meaning of the music better than any speaker I’ve ever had in my listening room. I heard new instruments, voices, and sounds in musical selections that I’ve listened to hundreds, maybe thousands of times. These speakers were not overly detailed; it is just that one might not be accustomed to […]
