In 2018, I’ve had the pleasure of listening to over a hundred systems and the privilege to audition many of them in my own listening rooms. After reflecting back on 2018 – there was some gear that just stuck with me. Either from shows or in private. I’ve listed them in this section.

I’m also introducing long-awaited the “Best Bits” section. This is where I’ll list the product awards and my personal ranking for all components.

I’ve been keeping my rankings in a spreadsheet over the years and wanted to gather more experience before publishing. I now feel it’s time to unleash it upon the world. I’ll be updating this section in the following weeks.

Without further ado, check out the Best of 2018. As always, only one product will receive Product of the Year. Enjoy!
