iFi Audio iDAC2 Micro Unboxing

iFi Audio is one of those brands which came up with the right products at exactly the right time. It all started with just a few devices in small metal boxes, each designed to do one thing - a phono stage, headphone amplifier or a D/A converter. Then the catalogue expanded and another product line was launched. Now iFi Audio also makes small hi-fi systems with their own speakers, but the Micro series will always be a bit special.

Sonus Faber Pryma Unboxing

Sonus Faber is one of the most recognized manufacturers of high-end speakers and one of the first companies that have decided to look beyond the audio market and interest other people with their creations - artists, architects, even people from the fashion industry. They surely would not have succeeded if their speakers were just ordinary, but for many years Sonus Faber has been setting standards and creating shapes copied by others. Sleek lines of Italian speakers inspired many other designers. Italians remain faithful to natural materials and rely on everything that is beautiful, exclusive and expensive.

Naim Statement

In a couple of days we will have an opportunity to listen to Naim Statement amplifier in a controlled environment - during a special weekend show in Wrocław, Poland. Of course the Statement has been presented to the audience at many big hi-fi shows all over the world, and thanks to Doug Graham and Jason Gould from Naim Audio we had a chance to listen to it during the last High End show in Munich, but to be left alone with it for a couple of hours - that should be quite something!

The making of Rubicons

If you want to see how one of the largest companies in the loudspeaker business makes their newest speakers, you have to watch a video prepared by DALI. Danes recently introduced a completely new series named Rubicon and on their example you can see how to make cabinets, drivers, crossovers and everything you need to create whole loudspeakers. Additionally, you can listen to various members of the team and see what their job is like. In less than five minutes we are presented with all stages of the production, including listening tests, final quality control and packaging. Rubicon series models are interesting because they employ a number of technologies used so far in the top series Epicon. Most characteristic are lightweight tweeters built on soft dome membranes made of wood fiber.

Remote control by Encore Seven

A young company from Poland - Encore Seven - just launched a new remote control dedicated for Egg-Shell Prestige tube amplifiers. It is an innovative product both in terms of functionality, and design. The remote looks like a wooden sphere and it can be finished in gloss black or white color. The other interesting option is natural wood with visible structure. The remote doesn't have any moving parts. Instead you have to just spin it on a horizontal surface to change te volume level.
