Response Audio Bella EXtreme 100 Power Amplifiers

I’m speechless. Or wordless. I had quite a lot to say about the new Response Audio Bella EXtreme 100 mono tube amplifiers during the first 400 hours of use while the Teflon® capacitors and other parts were slowly breaking in. Let me tell you a little about the amps themselves, and in the mean time, I’ll try to think of something to say about the way they sound now.

Revel Performa M126Be Loudspeakers

The new Performa Be series of loudspeakers offers an upgrade from the well-received Performa3 series from Revel. The Be speakers feature the Revel’s latest beryllium tweeter that was first introduced more than a decade ago in the Ultima2 series. Revel is a member of the Harman International family of brands which includes Mark Levinson, JBL, Arcam, and Infinity.

Shelter 90x Moving Coil Cartridge

What is the difference between an ordinary hamburger and a great hamburger? The meat? The bun? The seasonings? Maybe it’s the cook. It is all of these and more. I say that because if you give the same ingredients to several cooks, each hamburger will taste differently from the others. This has little to do with the Shelter cartridge under review, because for one thing, friends, it ain’t hamburger!
