High-WAF Lyngdorf speakers

The Danish high-end manufacturer Lyngdorf is known for its highly exclusive products. But it usually takes a long time between new launches. Now, however, there are three new loudspeakers at once. All at the interior-friendly end of the spectrum. Most notable is the Lyngdorf Cue-100, which the manufacturer describes as a high-end design speaker. Judging … Read more

Monster machines from Medion

We’ve seen press releases about them, and they were shown at CES last month. But laptops with the new Nvidia RTX 4000 series graphics cards and 13th generation Intel processors have not been available in stores. And when we’ve asked press agencies and importers, the answer has been “we don’t know yet.” But here they … Read more

Two powerful home cinema amplifiers from Musical Fidelity

Last autumn, Musical Fidelity unveiled a beast of an amplifier, the 7-channel M6x 250.7. An amplifier that the manufacturer claims, with its 250 watts per channel, has enough power to move the entire cinema - or concert hall - into the home. But what if you don't need seven channels, but five will do? Now, ... Read more

JBL 4329P Studio Monitor with built-in amplifier

The very compact and wireless JBL 4305P speaker took us by storm in 2022. It’s small enough to fit on your bookshelf, and potent enough to fill your living room with sound. But for some, this one’s too small. After all, there’s a limit to how much sound – and especially how much bass – … Read more

Simple NAD streamer

Streaming music to your hi-fi usually requires a special app. That means the choice between systems like Bluesound, HEOS and more, where you typically have to create an account. Which can be an unnecessarily cumbersome way when you just want to play music from the Tidal or Spotify app that you already have on your … Read more

Sonus faber Homage

Even now, years later, I think about how perfect the Sonus faber Serafino really was. I regret not keeping the speakers after the test. They would have stood as rock solid today too, no matter what new speakers they were compared to. But now I may get another chance, because Sonus faber has revamped the … Read more

Soundbar with AI-controlled 3D audio

At CES 2023 earlier this month, gaming specialist Razer not only brought computers, but also a rather unusual soundbar that is quite literally aimed at gamers. The Razer Leviathan V2 Pro uses head tracking and artificial intelligence to detect exactly where the user is – and direct the sound towards his or her ears. According … Read more

Musical Fidelity Nu-Vista

Musical Fidelity was founded by Antony Michaelson, who is also a professional musician. The founder had an affinity for Class A amplifiers, which are characterised by their silky-smooth musicality, but also for the heat they give off. The slightly too compact integrated Musical Fidelity A1 could get so hot it went out like a light. … Read more

NW-A306: A more affordable music player from Sony

It’s been a few decades since the Sony Walkman was synonymous with portable cassette players. The brand still exists, but now in the form of digital music players. But shouldn’t these be long gone too? After all, we use mobiles for most things now. One argument for a pure music player is that it can … Read more

CES 2023: LG OLED M3 is a wireless OLED TV

LG presented a number of new OLED models at this year’s CES trade show, but topped it all with a wireless OLED TV. The new top model has a screen size of 97 inches, and is the largest OLED screen LG can deliver. The size itself isn’t new, as LG launched 97-inch OLED last year. … Read more

CES 2023: JBL Spinner BT – the first Bluetooth turntable

The upcoming JBL Spinner BT is a simple wireless turntable with Bluetooth 5.2 and aptX HD that plays 33 1/3 and 45 records in Bluetooth speakers. The player comes with an MM pickup from Audio Technica on a removable pickup housing, and has electronic speed control. The player comes with dust cover, and is built … Read more

Naim New Classic series

Naim New Classic is a brand new range launched 50 years after Julian Vereker established Naim Audio in Salisbury. Subsequently, Naim slowly but surely became known as an uncompromising manufacturer of high-end amplifiers. The new range is in many ways the modern interpretation of Vereker’s original design philosophy with its minimalist design, sharp contours, and … Read more

CES 2023: Lenovo displays beyond limits

Lenovo is the world’s largest PC manufacturer, but it may still have a slightly boring image to contend with. And they did so emphatically at the CES 2023 trade show in Las Vegas. Alongside the expected powerful gaming machines, the Chinese brought, among other things, a digital notepad and a laptop with two OLED screens. … Read more

Nakamichi Dragon 11.4.6 Soundbar

Nakamichi Dragon 11.4.6 is a soundbar you’ve hardly seen like it. With a total of 21 channels, and not just one, but two subwoofers, and a set of rear speakers, this is perhaps the coolest soundbar yet. That’s probably why Nakamichi has chosen to call it the Dragon, as they’ve traditionally always named their flagship … Read more

CES 2023: Relumino – Samsung launches TV for the visually impaired

Samsung’s message at CES this year was about making consumers’ lives simpler, and “bringing peace to our connected world”. They’ve already been offering the vision-enhancing app Relumino for their VR glasses for a few years, and at CES 2023 they launched a similar finesse for their TVs. Samsung Relumino Mode: custom picture mode for the … Read more
