To be fair, they do mention the price: Maybe John Atkinson will measure this one later? I mean its realy one of this refugiums where old mans always battle against newer technology. And the funny part is they always loos. There was the battle against transistors they lost.

They are possibly the worst speakers in existence to use with a low power tube amp.
I suppose their minimum impedance is high-ish at I believe 7. But I guess if you run tubes at clipping, they do sound different from solid state. Joined Feb 27, Messages Likes What's new New posts Latest activity.

Besides reviews, the amp site also has a tips and tricks section so you can take action with your amplifiers.
If the other site was a narrowed down version of amplifiers, this site is the encyclopedia for amplifiers. What makes this site credible is its run by a special acoustic installation expert and industrial sound system expert.
Mark has been a reliable resource not only because of his credentials but because of his consistency. From a creator perspective, this is a lot of information to handle when starting out, but he distills the information for you making it simpler to digest. Here is a post talking about amp sims with real tube amps.
It covers different topics like products, industry events, and different people entrenched in the high-end audio lifestyle. Although we said this blog is covered by a lot of different writers, Scott is the person who created the blog and who is a self-professed audiophile. Remember, this is a time during the Zeppelin. Besides personal audio and loudspeaker guides, Scott also likes to head to audio shows and shoot photos sharing his experiences.
You have your navigation bar up top and it contains reviews, resources, blogs, shows, news, and anything related to audio.

Their review guides incorporate wireless technology, the specification of the product, and their own experiences with the product.
Instead of a blogroll where you have to scroll to see the next topic, a lot of the posts are centered on the screen. But on the other hand, it makes it hard to believe every review they have because of their affiliation with the brand. A custom-designed website made by a few collaborators, Audiophilia is a high-end journal for all things audio. Manufacturers who produce audio equipment can be nominated by the reviewer and Audiophilia will rate it by stars.
After the star component award and the credentials of the main publisher, we wanted to see one more component. Overall, navigation is easy for this site. Usually, different blogs stick to different genres, but this one uses versatility as one of its advantages.
Content on this blog consists of reviews, comparisons, and posts that help readers understand more about musical equipment. But it spreads its content around different topics like electronic accessories such as earphones and personal audio services.

A lot of the blogs we reviewed are run by older people nothing wrong with that , which usually means they have tons of wisdom and experience. At the time of their inception, loudspeakers were large and complicated much like cellphones back in the day.
What they did to break away from mainstream loudspeakers was to create a loudspeaker which was compact and actually loud.

Different types of speakers like Bluetooth speakers and home speakers are also covered in the blog.
Anyone interested in music speakers, in general, should visit this blog to learn more about the industry. The first time we encountered Bowers-Wilkins was when we covered the debate between kevlar and polypropylene speakers. Anytime an expert who is on the bleeding edge of the industry speaks up, people listen because they know they have a good chance of learning something.
Tilted more for audio engineers, this blog talks a lot about equipment and sound dynamics than actually creating music. We appreciate this because a lot of blogs have posts, but a lot of them revolve around clickbait titles.
This blog also has multiple videos revolving on 1 topic. An example of this is their videos on mixing. There is no exaggeration on our part when we say this is the place for beginners wanting to learn how to produce. Similiar to RecordingRevolution, Music. Tutplus offers guides on learning how to write songs or figuring out which DAW to use. Even though there are festivals around the world for electronic dance music, producers, instead of individual lyricists are the stars.
In the music world, artists who sing, rap, and display their voice are often the most appreciated. They have episodes talking about how you can grow your brand along with technical aspects like perfecting mixdowns. Thanks for the resources! Noisylabs is all about outdoor speakers. These blogs are judged by their content and insights. Cables, amplifiers, and power conditioning are some of the categories the author talks about.
Another reason why this blog is great is the depth the author goes into on each post. Their blog has a lot of content. They also focus on hi-fi speakers. Right away, when you click on an article you can see original graphics all over.
This is a good sign that the blog cares about quality content. The design of the website also makes it easy to navigate for different articles.
At the bottom of their site is all the different blogs they have of all the different topics. SoundOfMusic Another blog which talks a lot about home speaker systems. This blog focuses on luxury home entertainment and home automation. One downfall to this blog is their blog is not separated into different categories. In addition to that is the overall website design. DailyAudiophile What we love about this site is how simple it is. True audiophiles. What makes them trust-worthy is the years of experience to back it up.
