Marantz Model 30 & SACD 30n

Marantz announced two products signifying a new era for the brand, the Model 30 Integrated Amplifier, and SACD 30n Network Audio Streamer & SACD Player. Born out of the founding mission of Saul Marantz, whose aim was getting the listener as close to the original recording as possible, the Model 30 and SACD 30n were expertly designed and precisely tuned over the last three years. Meticulously manufactured in Shirakawa, Japan, they are also the first Marantz products to launch with the brand's new industrial design language, celebrating and modernizing signature design elements from legendary Marantz products of the 1950s, 60s, and 70s.

Hegel H95

Hegel introduced the H95 integrated amplifier, which replaces the H90 in September. The H90 was a big step for the Norwegian company when launched three years ago. Because of the implementation of the SoundEngine2 module it sounded a great deal better than its predecessor, the H80. As good as the H90 was and still is, its streaming and digital capabilities are slowly becoming obsolete. Hegel's team since designed the H190 and H120. Both of which offer both Spotify Connect, a far more stable UPnP connection as well as upcoming updates making them AirPlay2 compatible.

McIntosh MC1502

McIntosh is proud to announce the MC1502 Vacuum Tube Amplifier - a stereo amplifier designed for home audio and home music systems that produces 150 Watts per channel. It is the direct replacement to McIntosh's award-winning MC2152 Limited Edition 70th Anniversary Vacuum Tube Amplifier, which had a limited production run in celebration of their 70th Anniversary that occurred in 2019. The new MC1502 has identical audio specifications and sound reproduction performance of the heralded MC2152 but in a more customary McIntosh design.

James Tanner - Bryston

Hi-end audio equipment is not only bought but also built by enthusiasts. Often those who used to be in a similar situation and developed their hobbies to such an extent that at some point they decided to build something of their own - better than what's offered in stores. The history of many companies involves a very important input from other people as well. Sometimes it is a friend who decided to help his colleague in developing a small, garage manufacture, sometimes an old lady who bequeathed a nice guy running a music store a huge sum of money, and sometimes a good accountant who can get one of the largest loudspeaker manufacturers out of debt. James Tanner is one of those characters. Perhaps a blind fate that brought James to the right place at the right time. It is known, however, that his contribution to the development of one of the most respected companies making both amateur and professional audio electronics was considerable, to say the least. Today he is Bryston's vice president, but who was he then? A friend of the family? An old lady? Accountant? Well, no. He was a firefighter.
