Unique Melody Merlin V2 Hybrid Universal IEM Review

Unique Melody is a China-based company that had their beginnings in the hearing aid business. They were one of the first companies to offer re-shelling services for IEMs and soon introduced their own line of universal and custom IEMs. Most of the CIEM manufacturers were tuned towards stage and professional use so Unique Melody’s angle…


Music: The Most Disturbing Song I’ve Ever Heard

Music moves all of us in different ways. I’m a huge fan of Immortal Technique, a hip-hop activist who focuses on politics, socialism, class struggle, government, and institutional racism. Over 15 years ago, I heard this track and it left an image I will never forget. Til this day, it remains the most disturbing recording…


Audience Au24 SX Analog RCA Interconnect Review – A Quest for the Best

As you probably know, I’m a bit OCD about my cables. A few years back, I tried at least a dozen balanced interconnects before deciding on a pair of Audience Au24 SE XLRs. They were the most well-constructed and best sounding balanced interconnects I’ve ever heard. There aren’t too many “safe-bets” in the high-end audio…

Danacable Sapphire Mk.2 Speaker Cables Review – A Disappearing Act

Audiophile cables should be considered a serious component of an audio system, not just auxiliary gear. I used to believe their impact was subtle but after listening and testing over a hundred cables, choosing the proper analog/digital cables is the difference between a flat and congested sound versus an open and detailed one. Many believe the…


RMAF 2017 – The Music

I’m constantly looking for new music and I’ve found shows to be a great place to do some recon. Amidst the Eagles and Eva Cassidy filled hallways, there are some gems to be heard. To properly demonstrate their gear, vendors tend to select the best recordings they could get their hands on. That said, there’s no…


RMAF 2017 – Best Sounds of Show

I had plenty of favorites from the show. These were some of the standout components in the various categories. I enjoyed them for different reasons and wanted to give them some recognition. In no particular order: Speakers Verity Audio Lohengrin IIS speakers ($133,000) – No other system performed the disappearing speaker act better than Verity…


RMAF 2017 – Grand Show Report

We covered 99% of the rooms at RMAF…but first Denver… My favorite drug starts with the letter “W.” It ain’t what you’re thinking. Although the Mile-High City is known for their cannabis-infused everythings, my heart belongs to whiskey. My poison of choice is a nice glass of Springbank 21 single malt. As far as American…
