The story of Glenn’s OTL headphone amplifier started as that of a relentless endeavor to make the ALO recabled Beyer T1s sound as good as it was possible, and ended up being that of finding the center piece of my system that will probably outlast many other major components.
At the time of the pur...Read Full Post »

Reviewing the ALO recabled Beyerdynamic Tesla 1 posed a challenge: how to evaluate a component that is perhaps more transparent than the rest of the chain that it is being associated to?

While I am writing a review about cables, I don't think that cables have a sound of their own but I believe they induce losses to the signal being transmitted that can be audible to various degrees depending on the transparency of the system. So my review is based is how they interacted with my system and with my ears
The reason I bought my cables from Artisan Cables without even listen...Read Full Post »
