REVIEW Holo May KTE – GoldenSound Holo Audio May KTE Review – Going the extra mile Part 2 – Wow…..
Over three years of R&D went into producing the Holo Audio May DAC, which comes in three performance/price levels. The KTE (Kitsune Tuned Edition) version is the flagship. he Holo Audio KTE May DAC ($4998) includes hand selected modules, KTE exclusive Caps, HoloAudio Caps, DAC Module exclusive cover/shields, Silver wiring, Red Nano Fuse and many […]
In sum and substance, the Holo Audio KTE May is exceedingly well-built, well-engineered and solid, offers multiple digital modes to slightly ‘shape’ the sound to your taste (I preferred the seemingly more tonally ‘natural’ NOS mode), has a brilliantly capable USB input which obviates the need for re-clockers and sundry digital boxes, and sounds positively […]
In sum As the digital anchor in my ever-changing audio systems, the HoloAudio May DAC (Level 3 KTE) exhibited a force and gravity that exceeded even the mighty Mytek Manhattan II. It demonstrated a natural quietness that exceeded my former reference for natural quiet, the HoloAudio Spring. It exhibited a unique type of understated liveliness that exceeded the Yggdrasil and Chord Qutest. […]
Alpha Audio: “The first thing you notice when you connect the Audio GD R27 in the system is that this thing has balls. At the bottom the bass really comes through which provides a nice basis for the rest of the sound. There is quite some refinement in the highs and the mids never sounds […]
GLENN YOUNG: The Audio-gd Vacuum HE1 XLR preamplifier arrived at my door with the highest expectations ever for a review item. Having previously reviewed the company’s solid-state HE-1 Preamplifier, and finding it to be world-class, I was looking forward to finding out what the company could do with a tube product. To say that the […]
Like the Master 1, the Master 2H mono amplifiers amplify the whole truth and nothing but the truth. No matter how loud you play, is nothing short of amazing. At 4100 euros, the Master 2H’s must be the absolute best transistor amps that this amount of money can buy. Moreover, they are the best amps […]
The Hans Beekhuyzen Channel It’s a DAC that can be operated without or with oversampling and does not only do PCM but also DSD in the fully discrete R2R type digital to analog converter. It looks like we can have our cake and eat it too….
This was the most difficult and the most rewarding review to make. It is a first when I can call the same DAC slow and fast, hard slamming and easy going, super detailed and rolled off. Since R-2R DACs are relying a lot on the FPGA code, the manufacturer is basically telling it how it […]
Singxer have done a brilliant job at making a technically sound, and musically enjoyable DAC/Amp with a great set of features along with solid build quality. If you are not worried about using it with IEM’s, I can highly recommend this unit for an all-in-one device. It is equally at home in a hifi system […]
AUDIOPHILE-HEAVEN: “HIFIMAN HE6SE is one hard to drive headphone and well, Audio-GD Master 19 is capable to produce enough power and punch for it, and in fact, it is one of the very few amplifiers capable of really controlling HE6SE, and giving them the dynamics and punch they need. In fact, after hearing this […]
Hans was so kind to review the remarkable Holo May AND this Audio-GD R7HE dac. Two wonderful dacs with both their techniques and specialties. See both reviews and take your own conclusion! Or if you wish come and visit us and we let you hear the differences. Watch the review of the R7HE Watch the […]
GLENN YOUNG: The Audio-gd HE-1 preamplifier is one of the three best preamplifiers I’ve ever heard. It creates an acoustic space like no other component. Despite the spatial goodness, the HE-1 avoids coloring the sound. Not to be missed! Read the full review https://hometheaterhifi.com/reviews/amplifier/audio-gd-he-1-stereo-preamplifier-review/
This pre-power pair also offers extremely good value for money, delivering a combination of transparency, neutrality, and even-handedness that is normally impossible in this price class. I think you can easily spend double the amount and not get better sound. But the most amazing aspect of all is perhaps the further increase in performance when […]
