TONEAudio is in the process of making our complete back catalog of equipment reviews available for those of you wanting to just find a specific review without having to download the full issue that they first appeared. This will be an ongoing project for the next few months, so please stop back if you don’t see what you want immediately.


GamuT RS5i Speakers

GamuT RS5i Speakers Our speaker of the year for 2015!

I’m confessing an honest bias when I mention that I fell in love with GamuT speakers about six years ago and have been using their top of the line S9 as a reference speaker for the last five. Read More


GamuT D3i Dual Mono Preamplifier

GamuT D3i Dual Mono Preamplifier

Denmark’s GamuT has a reputation for incorporating the best parts into beautiful chassis. But as with many of its products, it is the details of the company’s new D3i preamplifier that make it a standout. Read More


ARCAM’s MusicBOOST

ARCAM’s MusicBOOST Mighty Midget Marvel

Today’s iPhones offer so much technology and functionality packed into a tiny space, it’s getting harder to imagine how the built-in capability can wow us further. Read More


Prima Luna ProLogue Premium CD Player

Prima Luna ProLogue Premium CD Player A Different Approach

Whenever I’m asked to suggest a CD player that’s warm, romantic, and “anti-digital,” I always recommend a player with a vacuum-tube output stage. Read More


Stirling Broadcast SB-88 Speakers

Stirling Broadcast SB-88 Speakers

The Black Keys’ new record Turn Blue reminds me of some of the finest psychedelic tunes from the 1960s. The opening track “Weight of Love” has a very Clapton/Cream vibe. Read More


AVID Acutus Reference SP – UPDATE

AVID Acutus Reference SP – UPDATE Still A Favorite

I’ve been using the AVID Acutus Reference SP for about four years now and that’s a mighty long time in the world of hifi reviewing, where things can be a revolving door. Read More


AudioQuest NightHawk Headphones

AudioQuest NightHawk Headphones

Staring at all the crappy headphones lined up next to the PlayStation games, I knew I had something cool waiting at home. The AudioQuest NightHawk headphones just arrived and yeah, I could listen to Kind of Blue and tell you how well they capture the texture of Miles Davis’s horn, or to Dark Side of the Moon and tell you that the stereo image they throw is psychedelic.

MOON by Simaudio Neo 430HA

MOON by Simaudio Neo 430HA

Switching from the subtle harmonies embedded in Van Halen’s “Jamie’s Cryin’,” to John Bonham’s massive drum sound via the recent HD remasters of the first two Led Zeppelin albums, I am stunned by how much musical depth, detail and sheer dynamic energy the MOON by Simaudio Neo 430HA reveals, especially in light of its $4,300 price tag.

Woo Audio 234 SET Monoblocks

Woo Audio 234 SET Monoblocks

You can look at the Woo Audio SET monoblocks one of two ways:  a dreadfully overpriced $16,000 headphone amplifier, or a $16,000 pair of SET monoblocks that give you output tube flexibility (45, 2A3 or 300B output tubes are accommodated) that eclipse a pair of $125,000 Wavac SET amps with a free headphone amp thrown in.

AudioQuest SLiP 14/2 Speaker Cable

AudioQuest SLiP 14/2 Speaker Cable Preview

There are precious few more inflammatory subjects in the world of audio than cables. Reviewing the expensive stuff is the quickest way to a fiery death, at least figuratively and the biggest dilemma is that some of the premium cable is brilliant, while some of it is truly snake oil. Read More
