Technics’ little gem of a speaker, the two-way SB-C700, signifies both the Japanese brand’s return to the high-performance audio scene and the start of Stereophile’s 54th year of continuous publication. Paradigm’s Prestige 95F tower speaker also gets the full review treatment, along with an idiosyncratic two-box CD player from the UK’s Audio Note, BAT’s cost-no-object Rex II tube preamplifier, and Apogee’s affordable but great-sounding Groove D/A headphone amplifier.

On the vinyl front, Michael Fremer reviews the new SME Model 15A LP player and Art Dudley auditions the unique Siberian Tzar DST phono cartridge, while Michael Lavorgna goes digital with the Totaldac-d1-mk2 processor and Kal Rubinson plumbs the bass depths with the new version of JL Audio’s Fathom f113 subwoofer. And John Atkinson kicks off this 156-page issue with an essay discussing how recent research proves that hi-rez digital audio sounds different from CD.

Stereophile, reaching the parts of the audiophile experience that other magazines can’t—or won't!
