Sound & Vision magazine has a great review of the Naim Audio Mu-so Qb wireless music system. A truly gorgeous looking and sounding cube speaker that has a built-in DAC, music streamer, and integrated amplifier. Naim has packed a lot of amazing technology into this compact and beautiful package. It’s also a S&V Top Pick of the Year. Sound & Vision’s verdict:  “The Mu-so Qb is pricey, but it’s impeccably built, offers a number of wired and wireless playback options, and is one of the best-sounding compact wireless speaker systems I’ve heard.” You can also change the color of the speaker grills to fit your tastes.

Stereophile Magazine reviews the Naim Uniti Nova

Stereophile Magazine has done a review in the latest issue of the Naim Uniti Nova, calling it “The Everything an Audiophile Needs In One Box.” Here’s one of the quotes: “The Uniti Nova is basically an amplifier plus a turbocharged computer that offers, in a single oblong metal box, almost everything audio that one could desire. And oh, what a beautiful box it is. The Uniti Nova’s case of brushed and CNC-machined aluminum… …a sleek-to-the-touch, illuminated volume dial on top panel that practically spins off rays of light; …”   Read more of the review here or pick up the latest copy of Stereophile at a retailer near you.

Focal Scala Utopia EVO speakers are now in… simply AMAZING

Can we some up the new Focal Scala Utopia EVO speakers with just one word? Yes. AMAZING. We were so smitten with the last Scala Utopia’s that it would seem a daunting task to top them, but they have. They sound truly amazing right out of the box, and the new finish we have for our demos is stunning. You truly have to see them to appreciate the work that Focal has put into these. There are also a lot of simple details that are different from the previous generation that enhance the overall look and feel. New features include: cables made in France, denser acoustic materials inside the subwoofer, double terminal boards and separate crossovers. Be sure to stop in some time soon and check out these beauties from Focal, leave enough time to give them a real listen!

The new Focal Kanta No.2 Speakers are in!

The new Focal Kanta No. 2 speakers arrived on Friday last week, and we’ve been marveling in them ever since! Wow, right out of the box they were producing magic… and by Monday they we’re sounding absolutely sublime. The mating of their latest generation beryllium tweeter and Flax drivers is absolutely seamless. Detailed, musical, airy, and magical… it’s hard to completely describe the wonder that are these new Focal speakers. Combine that with their unimposing compact size and beautiful finish work, and you have a winner. You have to hear and see these to fully appreciate what Focal has pulled off with the Kanta No. 2. Our floor model has the taupe matte finish with the walnut case work. Be the first to hear the Focal Kanta No. 2 speakers in the Portland Oregon area!
