  1. JS Technology Digital Audio Delay review

    JS Technology Digital Audio Delay review

    10  

    So you've bought that fancy new display you've been drooling over. With that high-quality audio system, you're looking forward to home-cinema nirvana. But something doesn't seem quite right; movies you view seem as if they've been poorly dubbed

    Belkin PureAV PF30 review

    8  

    Just when you think you've bought all the kit you need, Belkin comes along and says you need a 'Power Console' as well! It's for removing electrical noise from your power supply, allowing your precious hardware to do the best job possible

    Clearer Audio Copper-line Alpha review

    Clearer Audio Copper-line Alpha review

    9  

    If Clearer's mains Hub (tested last issue) seems distinctly aspirational, a pair of interconnects costing about the same as six full-price CDs is a much less frightening proposition. Indeed, the 0.5m pair supplied for review comes in at only £70

    IsoTek IEC connector review

    9  

    We're a little shy of reviewing any kind of mains DIY components as electricity isn't exactly something one wants to mess with. Still, one reason why this connector appealed to us is that it is very easy to fit without those embarrassing slip-ups

    Crystal Cable Connect Piccolo review

    Crystal Cable, based in the Netherlands, is the brand famously developed by the ex-concert pianist Gabi van der Kley, whose husband operates another prominent high-end cable brand, Siltech

    Clearer Audio Mains Hub review

    Clearer Audio Mains Hub review

    8  

    So it's just a four-way mains board, yes? Maybe not 'just'... Clearer Audio manages to produce five pages of description and specifications, which go at least some way towards justifying the price

    Atlas Ascent 2.0 review

    Atlas Ascent 2.0 review

    9  

    There are, of course, speaker cables that cost a good deal more than Ascent 2.0, but £460 for a terminated 3m set of speaker wires is definitely not mass-market stuff. In fact, it represents the top of the Atlas range

    Custom Design Expression Hi-Fi XL4 review

    Custom Design Expression Hi-Fi XL4 review

    8  

    Our first reaction on unpacking this rack (supplied, like most, in kit form) was, 'Where's the frame?' You get wooden legs, glass shelves, and a pack of bolts and bits. And indeed that's all you need

    Black Rhodium Prelude review

    Black Rhodium Prelude review

    9  

    This new interconnect is marketed partly on the strength of its low 'microphonic distortion'. Microphony in cables is not a new concern, but Black Rhodium claims to have reduced it to lower levels than usual

    Anvil Sound Display 4 Series review

    8  

    Anvil Sound Display is a new company to us - a specialist, making speaker stands to order. The design is fixed, but different baseplates, heights, spike options and so on make the finished product very flexible

    Supra Sword-ISL review

    Supra Sword-ISL review

    9  

    Supra Sword-ISL is designed as the natural partner for the Sword speaker cable. Described as a 'global limited edition', the first 3,000 pairs of the cable will be supplied in a 30th anniversary presentation case

    Wireworld Stratus 5 review

    Wireworld Stratus 5 review

    9  

    Arriving with a batch of new Wireworld cables, this one caught our attention. With what appears to be two flat conductors side-by-side, it is nearly an inch wide and less than a quarter as thick, and it just fits into the supplied MK mains plug

    van den Hul 'The Bridge' review

    van den Hul 'The Bridge' review

    9  

    Looking pretty much like any other spaced-figure-8 cable, the description of this one on vdH's website proclaims so many technological features that one can only be impressed. But does it live up to such promise?

    Tube Imp review

    8  

    For many owners of valve gear there's always an element of DIY when valves need changing. It's inevitable. But how do you know they need changing? Power valves sometimes make it obvious but small-signal types just fade gently away...

    Lehmann Audio Black Cube Statement review

    Lehmann Audio Black Cube Statement review

    8  

    Despite the name, this Lehmann model is an entry-level phono stage. While it may look reminiscent of much cheaper models from NAD and Pro-Ject, it is in fact considerably more sophisticated than either of them

    Atlas Hyper 2.0 review

    Atlas Hyper 2.0 review

    8  

    It's interesting that this £15 per metre speaker cable is more than halfway up the Atlas range and is rated by the company as one of its 'high performance' models. From some cable manufacturers, £15 per metre will hardly get you the time of day

    van den Hul MC Silver IT MkIII review

    9  

    MC Silver IT MkIII's three central cores are designed for balanced interconnects but can also be used to build a single ended cable. Conductors are an oxygen free copper that is mechanically silver-plated.

    Atlas Compass review

    Atlas Compass review

    9  

    The Atlas Compass is the middle of three digital/video cables and as such is probably the one most likely to appeal as an upgrade to basic CD transport/DAC installations.

    Epic Twin is one of two newly introduced speaker cables from The Chord Company. The conductor complement consists of two bundles of 19 silver-plated, oxygen-free copper strands

    Denon's DL103 is one of the real survivors of hi-fi - it first appearedon record players about the same time as The Beatles. But, from time to time, Denon unveils a variant on the 43-year-old design and here's thelatest.

    Supra Sword review

    9  

    Supra came to prominence in the 1970s with a cheap, finely stranded speaker cable. The modern Supra range has been reinvented. Sword's principal technical claim to fame is its zero inductance construction

    Partington Heavi II review

    Partington Heavi II review

    9  

    Despite the trendy misspelling in the name, this stand really is about good old-fashioned mass - 28kg of it in the form of steel, sand and resin, which combine to create one of the most robust stands we can recall seeing

    Russ Andrews Ultra Purifier Block review

    This is an unusually intelligently designed eight-way distribution block. Mounting those sockets the 'wrong' way up is ideal for those who use anything thicker and less flexible than the basic PVC mains lead

    Monster Cable M1000i review

    9  

    This is Monster's current top model from the M-series of interconnect cables. It's a moderately bulky cable that apparently conceals quite a lot of technology beneath its undemonstrative exterior.

    HT Cyberlight Magic Tweeter review

     

    Despite the name of Harmonic Technology's speaker cable, and the fact that it is recommended for the tweeter arm of a bi-wire speaker, or for general use with a single-wired speaker, it's actually a conventional, if high-quality speaker cable
