COPLAND CSA 100 > Hi-Fi News

In what is looking like it might be a trend – tube hybrid integrated amplifiers – Copland joins in with a Danish beauty at a sensible price, the all-singing, all-dancing CSA100

Three thoughts hit me as soon as I switched on the Copland CSA100 integrated amplifier. The first was that it was an all-embracing, do-everything tube/transistor hybrid like the Vinnie Rossi L2i-SE [HFN Jul ’20], rated at a similar 100W/8ohm if at a fraction of the price, at £3498. The second was that I want it to kick off a fashion for cool, fully-loaded integrated hybrids because they are the smartest option for offering the best of the tube/solid-state worlds. The third is the realisation that I need to look deeper into hi-fi system building.


NUPRIME AMG STA Power Amplifier and AMG PRA Preamplifier > TAS review

The company was founded back in 2014 by Jason Lim, the former CEO of NuForce, and it specializes in boutique Class D amps, media streamers, and many other products. I was very excited to get a nearly complete system of its AMG STA power amplifier and AMG PRA preamp. The amp and preamp combination have the same form factor and were clearly designed to work in tandem. While I’m a fan of mixing and matching equipment from a wide range of manufacturers, there’s something special about listening to the products from a single line, and getting a sense of  how they work in tandem.



NOVO > TECHNICS SU-G700M2 integrirani ojačevalnik visokega razreda

Pogon JENO
(odpravljanje trepetanja in optimizacija oblikovanja šuma)


Pogon JENO (odpravljanje trepetanja in optimizacija oblikovanja šuma)
Za verno posredovanje ogromne količine podatkov v zvočnike brez izgub ima jakostni ojačevalec SUG700M2 povsem digitalni ojačevalnik z JENO Engine, ki temelji na konceptu zasnove referenčnih sistemov. Da bi rešili vprašanje poslabšanja kakovosti zvoka zaradi trepetanja, ki povzroča težave za običajne digitalne ojačevalnike, ima SU-G700M2 izvirno vezje za zmanjšanje trepetanja, ki ga odpravlja v celotnem zvočnem frekvenčnem območju. Za kakovost zvoka je pomembno tudi edinstveno visokonatančno vezje za modulacijo širine impulza (PWM). Z optimizacijo elementov, kot so hitrost, pri kateri nastaja šum, stopnjo in kvantizacijsko število, z našim edinstvenim strokovnim znanjem zagotovimo, da se tudi podatki v širokem dinamičnem razponu, ki ga vsebujejo viri zvoka z visoko ločljivostjo, brez izgube pretvorijo v signale PWM. Te tehnologije zagotavljajo reprodukcijo naravnega in podrobnega zvoka, kar omogoča zaznavanje tudi najnežnejših nians glasbe.



TECHNICS SU-R1000 Integrated Amplifier > TAS review

Let me begin this review with my conclusion: The new Technics SU-R1000 integrated amplifier is one of the most innovative and best-sounding pieces of electronics I’ve had the opportunity to audition in recent years. It shows how quickly digital sound is evolving and provides an exceptional mix of well-engineered features in a single integrated unit—drawing on much of the technology used in the Technics SU-R1 reference system that Alan Taffel review in the October 2016 issue of TAS.

ATC SCM40 > Applause Award, Stereonet

In the wonderful world of loudspeakers, you don’t get more hardcore than ATC. The company has ploughed its own furrow imperiously since 1974, largely avoiding the fashion-conscious world of consumer audio and focusing instead on its growing number of pro clients around the world. Unlike many speaker makers, the company doesn’t update its model range every year. Indeed, its apparent disdain for stylistic trends seems to endear it to many customers – something that’s buttressed by the unusually long product life of its designs.

The SCM40 floorstander doesn’t look or feel like any other loudspeaker in its price class for two reasons. First, it’s a true, old school 3-way design with ATC’s iconic (to speaker geeks like me, at least) 75mm dome midrange driver. Second, the cabinet is an infinite baffle type which is rare in any modern speaker these days, and last commonly seen back in the nineteen seventies!

AURENDER N100SC caching music server and streamer > Dagogo review

The immediate advantage of the Aurender was the startlingly pristine state of CD music that emerged on the first note, prompting the realization of the crudeness of sound from my Apple MacBook Pro and Oppo UDP-205, pre-Aurender days. Tonal definition and spatial projection of instruments by the Aurender approached the Esoteric K-01XD physical disk playback level, conceding in ultimate textural and tonal differentiation.

The Aurender would be a highly qualified transport for the $153,000 Audio Note UK Fifth Element/Fifth Force DAC system for the tone-philes who, after purchasing the DAC, could no longer afford Audio Note UK’s own matching, $100,000 CDT-Six CD transport. Music with resolutions up to 24 Bit 96KHz, the upper limit of the ANUK DAC system, was reproduced with such beauty of tone, especially with solo instruments and the human voice, and yet with such degree of care that there was simply no likeness of it that I know of. The operational stability and sound quality of the Aurender was first-class in serving the Audio Note UK super DAC.

Gold Note A6 evo 2

GOLD NOTE A6 EVO II & A3 EVO II > new evolution models


We are pleased to officially present the new three-way floor-standing loudspeaker A6 EVO II: with a rear bass-reflex design featuring a 6″ internal sub-woofer, 2x 5,5″ mid-woofers, and a 1,1″ dome tweeter in silk, it’s stylish and extremely powerful, providing a naturally smooth sound.

From the cabinet to the drivers, this loudspeaker is entirely made in Italy by local suppliers and craftsmen to deliver the highest quality in terms of sound, aesthetics, and materials.

The new design of the front panel, the crossover, the unique characteristics of the drivers, the use of extra-rigid aluminum, and the overall rigidity of the structure have been developed to achieve the most natural and dynamic sound.


ATC SCM 50 P Classics > Excitingly honest!

The ATC SCM50PSL play astonishingly unspectacular – as long as there is only porridge on the recording, the British only serve bland soft food. A spectacle for the sake of a spectacle is not what the SCM50PSL does, they claim to be too civilized, too neutral, too correct on the whole. But woe, the canned clay has tonal flavor – then it gets fiery.
