Amazon Music HD
Amazon's much-anticipated Amazon Music HD, has finally launched and with it comes millions of CD-quality and high-resolution audio tracks that consumers can stream. The new streaming service offers 50 million tracks with a CD-quality bitrate of 16 bit/44.1kHz (which Amazon interestingly has labelled as "HD tracks") but also millions more in 24-bit/192 kHz which will raise more than a few...
MartinLogan CI40XW
MartinLogan has introduced more than a few flagship loudspeakers over the past four decades including the classic Monolith, CLS, Statement e2, CLX, and Neolith.

NAD M10 Streaming Amplifier
NAD has been pushing streaming technology for many years with their Master series digital amplifiers, D 3020 V2, D 3045 Hybrid Amplifiers, and the Bluesound Node and PowerNode products (Bluesound and NAD are both siblings under the Lenbrook umbrella).

Dali KATCH ONE
Does the world really need any more soundbars? We were hoping that consumers were finally getting over that and thinking about investing in a dedicated 5.1 surround system again.

Polk Audio Legend Series
Polk Audio has been manufacturing loudspeakers for over 45 years, and the California-based company continues to plow ahead with innovative technology that is both forward-thinking but also respectful of the company's past. Those of us old enough to remember the aggressive marketing campaigns of the 1980s featuring Matthew Polk, have reason to smile with the announcement of the new...
Reading the Sony press release about its support for MQA with the NW-ZX500 and NW-A100 series high-resolution audio players was like taking a strange trip down memory lane. I was nine years-old (apparently) when the first Walkman was introduced; more than 385 million were sold from 1979-2009 making it one of the most successful consumer products ever made. Those...
Schiit Audio Sol
People still listen to records? You don't say. Some of us never stopped and have watched the format's resurgence over the past seven years with both joy and a certain degree of angst -- used record prices have gone through the roof. What was once a dying audiophile category supported by only a few dozen brands who carried the...
Denon PMA-150H
Fall is the best time of year for audiophiles. The kids go back to school, and hundreds of new audio/video products are introduced at IFA, CEDIA, and Rocky Mountain Audio Fest.

PSB Alpha S10 Subwoofer
With Rocky Mountain Audio Fest set to begin in Denver on September 6th, manufacturers are starting to pull the curtain back on some new products that will be introduced for the first time this weekend. PSB Speakers; which is owned by the Lenbrook Group (parent company for NAD, Bluesound) will be in attendance and introducing two affordable subwoofers as...
McIntosh MA352 Hybrid Integrated Amplifier
