Chord Electronics 2go/2yu - (£1,445)
In May 2023 I wrote a review of the Chord 2go/2yu, you can find that review HERE. The conclusion was positive, I wrote:
In my main system, via the Naim SBLs, the journey was initially far more of a roller coaster. Once certain factors had...
Triangle Comete 40th Anniversary - £1,499 (Premium Finish)
It is not often that I open a box and find myself thinking, well this is beautiful; but, I have to say that I was bowled over by this pair of speakers. The design and attention to detail really impressed me...
Quiescent T100SPA Stereo Power Amplifier
Review by George Sallit
Apart from minor changes to amplifier designs, there have been very few radical changes in modern amplifiers. Yes, I know about Class D, but even the nCore is over 10 years old, with new variants being 2 years old and more...

NVA Limited Edition AP20 integrated amplifier - £1,200
NVA Cube 3 Speakers - £1,000
I have just forced myself from my sickbed as the WAM show is tomorrow. This review was a good idea that became mired in equipment being needed for shows, unmovable diary events and...
The HiFi Gods don’t appear to have been too kind in recent weeks. The Ascot Show was beset with rail strikes and this weekend’s UK Audio Show, at the Staverton Park Hotel, was surrounded by road works and traffic accidents. Fortunately, for me, George was doing the driving! We witnessed the bent...
Synthesis Roma 69DC DAC (£2,499)
Review by Martin Virgo
DACs are an interesting challenge to review, not because they all sound the same, although there are definitely family resemblances, but due to their impact being shaped by the system of which they are a part.
Is a DAC a...
Meze 109pro Open Back Headphones (£769)
Meze is a company based in Romania and started in 2011. They carry a rather stellar reputation, with the Meze Empyrean being lusted after by many headphone users, but this is not the apotheosis of their range.
I asked the...
Sound Artist LS3/5a or System Building
Review by Martin Virgo
Sound Artist LS3/5a = £495
A few months ago I reviewed the Sound Artist in comparison with the Falcon LS3/5a. I reproduce the near-field system section below, heh re-use is very green!
My nearfield system uses a Naim...
No Stopping Me This Time, SME
Martin Virgo & George Sallit
Trevor of Guildford Audio invited George and I to come back to compare and contrast a number of SME turntables.
Frankly, I needed no time to say, ‘Yes please’. Trevor’s listening room is a veritable Alladin’s cave of superb HiFi...
Harbeth P3-ESR XD (£2,635)
This review has again emphasised the subtle borrows and hazards that can affect what you choose to buy. The complexities include: What initially impresses; The differences to your usual listening experience; What you enjoy over a longer...
HiFi Rose RS250A
I was aware of HiFi Rose as a couple of fellow reviewers have had some of their kit through their hands over the last year or so, and so I was curious.
HiFi Rose are a South Korean company based in Seoul. They are a subsidiary of Citech...
Chord Electronics 2go/2yu Review (£1,445)
This review has again emphasised to me the subtle borrows and hazards that can affect what you hear from your digital audio. The effects of the hosting, software and grounding can all have a big influence on your musical...

Synthesis A50 Taurus Integrated Amplifier
Review by MusicMan76
I’m going to start this review, by doing what I tend to do with every review that I read myself, and that is to find the short conclusion. In our busy lives, sometimes we just want to cut to the...
This is a real quickie with some pics from a Rega Planar 10 install I did the other day, I have often said that over the years we seem to have created a Petrolheads HiFi shop as many or our customers seem to have petrol as well and music running through their veins, well this...
Now I will try to contain my enthusiasm for these speakers, especially when partnered with the new Western Electric 91E amp we now have on demo but I have a feeling that I will fail miserably.
Firstly I must say that after 10+ years of being involved in HiFi sales I feel I have...
