Feliks Audio Euforia Review

Not too long ago, Feliks Audio sent over their Elise amplifier for a jolly good run through our gauntlet. It passed with flying colors, of course. This time around, they've sent over their crowning achievement, the flagship, the lv8 Mario lava level, their sec...

The Hugo 2 By Chord Electronics

Has it been 3 years already since the launch of the original Chord Hugo DAC/Amp? Time flies I guess in this hobby yet the Hugo is still hugely relevant and massively respected by many an audiophile as one of the high points in the portable audio market. Since...

The i1 By FiiO

After having owned and loved many other FiiO products before due to their outstanding sonic value per dollar, it looks like they are at it again with the i1. What we have here is FiiO's first Apple MFi certified digital to analog converter (DAC) and headphone...
Title 1


When I first heard about the ADI-2 Pro some months ago, I was indeed very interested. I read some more news on professional audio sites but some of the jargon I did not understand. I'm sorry, I have to admit, I'm an audiophile who loves to listen to music. I m...

The K5 By FiiO

This one slipped down the publishing schedule, my bad, but it is rather good timing considering we just published the DK1 Multifunction dock a few weeks back which offers a slither of what the K5 can do with the X Series of DAPS and the E17k from FiiO. This ti...

It has been the trend of late to roll out eye catching statements with portable amps from big companies who are preferring to roll DAC's and amps into combo units and pitch them as your smartphone or iGadget companion. However, every now and then a darn good o...

The Sustain84 By Cypher Labs

I can never quite tell if Cypher Labs practices soft launches or things just creep up on me with their product line but towards the end of 2015 David and his team got all tubey and launched the portable tube amp, the Trio, and now this, a mid-range desktop tub...

The K1 by FiiO

FiiO have been doing a commendable job in updating their DAC & amp line-up to suit a wide variety of user tastes and preferences across all price ranges. Their recent offering, the FiiO K1, is an example of just that which stays true to their original mant...

The E10K Olympus 2 by FiiO

I know I have reviewed the FiiO E10 on this site before but I felt that since I really liked those when it came out that I should review the latest version as well. I don't know what FiiO did to the first update to the E10 with the first Olympus model since I ...

The N4 by Miniwatt

It's Chinese New Year soon and Hong Kong audio specialists have reduced the price on their N4 USB powered DAC/Amp to a very tempting $199 as a special promo so we though we would take a look and see how it performs and if $199 is a "dont miss it" bargain. T...
