Room treatments - a cost effective upgrade? You bet!
Having recently moved house, I was excited by the prospect of a dedicated listening room. My kit shared the lounge previously which was carpeted, had curtains and a number of soft furnishings. The room was about 5m x 6m and had a beamed ceiling with beams running perpendicular to the listening axis. It all sounded pretty good. This was my baseline moving to the new house.

Yesterday I experienced the best analogue set up I have ever heard - bar none. The new Vertere turntables are just extraordinary and having smashed through the glass ceiling of analogue performance 30 years ago with the Xerxes, Touraj has taken it to a whole new level again with the RG1 & SG1 Touraj's passion…Continue

Compared to a standard patch lead the entry C Stream was a revelation, and the Indigo and Sarum Tuned Aray were just in a totally different league. If you are running a Naim streamer you have got to come and hear these…Continue

Neil B had this to say about his recent cable evaluation:-

I found the detail of the component parts of tracks, specific instruments and minor ancillary parts to be astonishingly clear, yet also integrated overall into the music in a beguiling fashion. It reminded me of my impression when first getting the 500, with the same verve and viscerality characteristics, and…Continue
