Why I Love White Speakers

Why I Love White Speakers

Everyone has a favorite color; mine is red, and my husband (it’s no secret about Jeff Dorgay) loves lime green. When it comes to accessorizing these are the colors that attract us. Read More ->

Wax Rax RC-2 Record Cart

Wax Rax RC-2 Record Cart

Six years ago, I wrote the review below. I remain as enthused about the Wax Rax RC-2 as ever. The price has gone up slightly, due to increased materials cost (from $1,525 in 2015 to $1,825 in 2021) but this product is still worth every penny. Read More ->


KEF LS-50 Speakers – Blue and White

KEF LS-50 Speakers – Blue and White

We love the KEF LS-50 and after almost two years, three of the TONE staff use them as their small speaker reference, so we are still enamored. With so much essence of the KEF Blade in such a small package, these speakers offer scary good imaging and coherence. Read More ->


Madison Fielding Flagstone PlanterSpeakers

Madison Fielding Flagstone PlanterSpeakers

Water and speakers don’t usually mix well. But when your speakers double as planters, you have to water them, if you don’t want the foliage contained therein to whither and die. Read More ->

Ortofon DS-1 Digital Scale

While gadgets aren’t always fashionable, a properly set up turntable is always in style.  And what better way to adjust tracking force than with a digital scale?  We’ve tried some of the cheapie, Chinese-made digital scales in the $40–$60 range, but they have all had relatively short lifespans.

In Search of the Ultimate Listening Chair

In Search of the Ultimate Listening Chair

Microsoft Surface 3 Pro

Microsoft Surface 3 Pro

As a dyed in the wool group of Apple enthusiasts, it’s tough to ignore the new Surface 3 Pro from Microsoft.  We can argue the Windows vs. Mac interface until we become exhausted, so let’s leave that out of it, shall we – that’s a great way to waste hours of your life on an internet forum some evening.

The Beats Pill

The Beats Pill

On one level, Beats has become the new Bose, in that everyone loves to slag Beats. But like the legendary Bose 901 speaker, which we reviewed a few years ago, most of the Beats stuff is pretty damn good and not worthy of the aggression thrown its way. Read More ->
