Linaeum Corporation: What happened?

Lloyd ‘Ace’ Grover writes … Company based in Portland, Oregon, USA that manufactured mid end loudspeaker systems that featured a unique patented line source/wave bending tweeter that is also referred to by the Linaeum name, note that their trademark used a ligature, i.e. it was written Linæum rather than Linaeum like the company name.

MARL LEVINSON. “Early Levinson was wonderful – the 28 and 25/26 pre’s with the 29, 27.5 and 23 power-amps had all the tube attributes without the foibles.”

      Editor’s note: Really? Not in my experience! I sold my ML-28 Mark Levinson preamp within days of buying it second hand. I was hoping for the sheer magic of the ML-6a and ML-7. Sadly by that time, that magic was nowhere to be seen, felt or heard. Yes the built quality was […]

PIONEER: Andrew Jones interview

Stephen Mejias writes: In our September issue, I wrote about Pioneer’s excellent SP-BS22-LR loudspeaker. At just $129.99/pair (and often discounted), the SP-BS22-LR represents extraordinary value and may very well attract a wider and younger audience to true high-fidelity sound. The only thing I don’t really like about the speaker is its tongue-twister of a name. […]

Is this why Your Dad’s $300 1980 Receiver Still Sucks?

Steven Stone: Back in the “golden age” of high-end audio hardly a month went by that you couldn’t find and read a negative review in The Absolute Sound or Stereophile which excoriated a particular manufacturer’s newest offering. Nowadays it’s hard to find an equipment review that doesn’t describe its subject in glowing terms. What’s changed? […]
