Allnic Audio A-6000 Reviews CURRENTLY IN SYSTEM 1

Audiophile Equipment Reviews (New and Retro)

The reviews and information on our website cover both new and used (retro) equipment, so hopefully, we can provide you with a little written entertainment as you research a potential new toy, if not some valuable guidance along the used/new equipment purchase trail. Our reviews are not ‘paid for’, we are not ‘sponsored’ and you’ll see no paid-for advertising on our website. If it sucks, we’ll tell you about it. If you’re a manufacturer or importer and you’d like to submit a component for review, simply contact us here.

Emotive Audio Epifania

Emotive Audio Epifania

The best preamp I’ve heard, to date. Ever. Is it ‘perfect’? I’ve no idea. When I heard the Allnic Audio L-5000 DHT I couldn’t imagine it getting any better, then the Epifania came along and nudged the bar for ultimate transparency, resolution, and outright dynamic ability. It makes other preamps sound slow and confused. Hearing is believing.

Review of the Emotive Audio Epifania Preamp.

AMR AM-777 SE Review

Manley Labs Steelhead Phonostage

Styled after a WWII army issue radio, the Steelhead is the ultimate tool for interpreting that pesky signal coming from your LOMC. Or is it? We have it in the rig now so…

AMR AM-777 SE Review

AM-777 SE

With its brushed aluminum chassis, the AM-777 looks like a $10K component. But how does it perform? It’s in the system and warming up as we speak!

For those that haven’t seen the AMR AM-777 SE, it’s an integrated amplifier with a single 6H1n-EV tube, and a USB DAC for direct input from any computer, or even something like our Aurender N100H. 

Check Back Soon!

Devialet Expert Pro 220 Review

Devialet Expert Pro 220 CI

We’ve heard all the fuss about the Devialet, so it’s next into the review chain following the AMR AM-777 SE

Incredible flexibility in this beast of a unit – integrated amp, configurable everything including hi/low pass, ability to control active subs, and supposedly the world’s most sophisticated phonostage.

emotive audio sira LE tube preamp review

Emotive Sira LE Tube Preamp

Getting this beauty warmed up as we speak. The Emotive Sira LE Tube Preamp is purported to be a real audio gem and with a fairly sensible MSRP. If it sounds as good as it looks we’ll be doubly impressed.

Conrad Johnson ET250s Power Amp

Conrad Johnson ET250s Power Amp Review

Since the ET5 preamp was here for review we decided to bring in a Conrad Johnson ET250s and see what it could do paired with several different tubed preamps and to see if there’s any special ‘synergy’ when using it with the CJ ET5.

Quad ESL 57

Quad ESL57 - Classic 1957 design built in the mid 80's and stored for over a decade...

The last pair of Quad ESL 57 I owned was left curbside for the garbage collector when I moved from the UK to the USA 25 years ago.

Can’t wait to set these up.

Zesto Audio Andros 1.2 And The Manley Labs Chinook Phonostage

I’m so far behind on various writing and review projects that I feel I just have to get something out there so people know that I’m still alive! Of course I blame my visit to Capital Audiofest for falling behind with my work – it was a great show and chock full of things I wanted to write about.

Now that the dust has settled from CAF I’ve had some time to sit down and undertake more serious listening along with some frantic note-taking. So up here is a rather condensed and truncated review of two respected and high-performing phono preamps…..

Audiophile Equipment Reviews From Audio Resurgence

At Audio Resurgence we have many years’ experience reviewing high-end audio components and audiophile quality systems. Selecting the right high-performing home audio components is a tough task, particularly in this day and age where most audio enthusiasts have limited opportunities to actually get out and listen to audio gear in an optimized setting.  

We bring in carefully selected items for review, then provide an honest and thoughtful evaluation of how each component performs in our review system(s). We try to change things around so that we get to hear each piece of gear in a variety of configurations so our reviews are more beneficial to a wider range of people.

Our review system is constantly evolving and when we find something we feel is a significant enough advancement over what we currently have, we’ll do our best to acquire it!

OUR PHILOSOPHY ON COST-NO-OBJECT
HIGH-END AUDIO GEAR

We’re of the firm belief that achieving excellent sound quality from a home audio system shouldn’t require one to take out a second mortgage. It should be attainable at a reasonable level of budget, particularly when one is prepared to weave used and demo components into the system mix. 

This is our philosophy here at Audio Resurgence where we aim to provide our readers with fair and honest reviews and assessments and not to fill your heads with intoxicating hyperbole that encourages you to spend more than is reasonable for quality sound.

To this end we’ll review both current production home audio equipment and also used-gear which may be out of production but available via the used marketplaces.  When we complete a review we’ll either send the review sample back to the manufacturer, sell it on the used markets if it’s something we’ve purchased, or keep it as part of our review system if it’s something we believe advances our ability to produce fair and honest reviews.
