Teac AX 3000

The TEAC Distinction line certainly seems to be well thought out and well matched to each other. The CD-3000 with its 192kHz upsampling before decoding and dual differential DACs has us excited.

Musical Fidelity A5

Bought on a "whim" was on special at local dealer. Immediate impression is of a much deeper and controlled bass and no of the treble harshness than previous Primare A10 (still using cyrus cd7 and PMC TB2). It brings the music into the room with a...

Sennheiser GSX 1200 Pro

The GSX 1200 Pro is a very good gaming amp. It’s chat link feature would be great for eSports teams competing locally, but if you won’t use the feature save the cash and get the GSX 1000 instead.

I bought a new Marantz SR7015 earlier this month as the centre of a new AV set-up. The advice from Joe at the Oxford RicherSounds store was clear and well-informed. Coupled with expanding my Dali speakers, I'm now a very happy owner.
