I’m excited to announce that Crux Audio is offering a discount on the SOtM dCBL-CAT7 ethernet cable to readers of Audio Bacon! If you haven’t already, please read my review on this wonderful cable. I’ve thoroughly enjoy their dCBL-CAT6 cables and have been trying to find discounted cables for over a year. They just don’t happen often…


Cavalli Audio Liquid Tungsten Preview

Quick post on Cavalli Audio‘s upcoming flagship headphone amplifier. I typically like to see beautiful things with their clothes off but in this case, please dress this thing up already Cavalli! 😛 My impression was that it didn’t quite sound like what we’d expect from a tube amp (which isn’t a bad thing) but it…


SOtM sMS-200 Network Audio Adapter & mBPS-d2s Battery Module Review

Introduction The SOtM sMS-200 has been the talk of the town in recent months…and for good reason. A lot has already been written on its functionality and features set so this review is primarily focused on the sonic qualities of this device. First allow me to get a few setup formalities out of the way….


Best Headphone Cable for the Focal Utopia? I Like the Danacable Lazuli Reference

I’ve reviewed the Danacable Lazuli for the Abyss and it was a significant upgrade from the stock cable. At the time I thought it was a tad warm and closed-in for my tastes but I thoroughly enjoyed the vocals and sweet sound signature. Since then I’ve yearned for that full and seductive midrange, which I’ve…

HiFiMAN HE-1000 V2 Headphone Review

The original HE-1000 was a part of my shootout a few years ago. I remember how comfortable and sweet the headphone sounded. I mentioned if the HEK had more shine and a blacker background, it would compete hard with the Abyss. For what it was worth, I had a few music lovers over and 90% of…


High Fidelity Cables Trinity Helix Headphone Module Review

Every so often we get an innovative product we didn’t know we needed. High Fidelity Cables is no stranger to that when they introduced their amazing magnetic technology that changed the way people listen to music. I’ve had plenty of readers who have read my reviews on their cables and power accessories (especially the MC-0.5s)…


SOtM dCBL-CAT7 Audiophile Ethernet Cable Review

Audiophile ethernet cables. Most would laugh or vomit when they hear those three words. I firmly believe it’s one of the biggest bottleneck for many networked rigs out there. Naysayers would be believers if they just take two cheap ethernet cables from different brands and just give it a listen. If you aren’t a complete…


Double Helix Cables Prion4 Headphone Cable Review

When I first reviewed the Silver Complement4 headphone cable, I didn’t think a cable could get any more transparent and honest. It was my reference cable for nearly all of my reviews. A few months later Peter Bradstock announces his masterpiece…the Prion4. Without hesitation I purchased a pair with all the upgrades and couldn’t wait to…
