  9. When I heard that I would be reviewing the $28,000 Dan D'Agostino Master Audio Momentum phono preamplifier for this issue of Enjoy The Music, I was a very happy audiophile -- on account of the time I spent with the $50,000 D'Agostino Momentum Lifestyle integrated amplifier that I reviewed earlier this year. If this phono preamplifier had any of the sonic characteristics of the MLife, I suspected I was going to hear my records through a state-of-the-art phono preamp, or at the very least one that was very close to state-of-the-art. When writing about their MLife integrated amp I declared that not only have I never heard an integrated sound so marvelous in my system, I never have I heard one sound as marvelous anywhere. So again, I was looking forward not only to hear what the Dan D'Agostino phono preamp sounded like in my system, but to also take advantage of its ease of use and flexibility, as all its settings can be adjusted by controls on its front panel. Spoiler alert: The D'Agostino phono stage sounds incredible. Read More View the full article
  10. Bryston is a company that has never rested on their laurels. Unlike some companies, Bryston does not release new products every year; just to release "something". Instead, Bryston tends to issue generational releases, marked by a significant incremental improvement in sound and technology. Last year, Bryston introduced their new Cubed Series amplifiers, followed by Cubed Series Integrated Amplifier (Bryston B-1353 Integrated Amplifier), Pre-Amplifier (Bryston BP-173 Preamplifier) and Digital Streamer (Bryston BDP-3 Digital Player). The Cubed Series products were developed with the same patented circuitry developed in conjunction with Dr. Salomie, Ph.D., to "move the listener ever closer to the music with such visceral realism, the experience is most comparable to live performance".

  15. Some may think that because the Classic Preamp is a tube unit that one could assume that its midrange would be the star of the show. Of course Yes, this linestage has "a great midrange", but it does this without anything that would resemble what one might consider a typical "tube sound", at least not in the negative sense of the term. In fact, of the best things about this midrange was how much I did not notice it. Read More View the full article
  16. Nordost is happy to reintroduce a true Nordost classic, the SuperFlatline Speaker Cable (starts at $299.99 for a two-meter pair; additional paired one-meter increments are $100). SuperFlatline was one of the original cable options that put Nordost on the map. Easily distinguishable by its trademark, flat design, SuperFlatline quickly became known throughout the industry as one of the most respected high end speaker cables. According to Nordost, this cable "offers an unmatched performance level at its price point. Read More View the full article
  17. The new Burson Audio Fun ($299 to $849 depending on configuration) is a dual mono Class A headphone amplifier and preamplifier. Its symmetrical circuitry is powered by four sets of Max Current Power Supply (MCPS) developed by Burson. Their MCPS is claimed to be far superior to traditional transformers by delivering instant, clean, and maximum electric current. At the heart of Burson's Fun is their fully discrete Burson Conductor V2 amplification stage. This same circuitry has been refined since 2008 and famed for its micro details and musicality.
