YAMAHA NS-F901 SOAVO LOUDSPEAKERS

 

If hi-fi loudspeakers strike you as ugly, take a look at Yamaha's gorgeous NS-F901 Soavos pictured here. Just like their pianos, they have a deep gloss black lacquer finish that makes them look sumptuous. The cones are pure white and silver trims finish the picture. Build quality is piano-like too.
    How do they sound? Yamaha take their technology seriously and craft a product that is deeply impressive. Read our review to find out MORE…

In a well attended press reception held at the Shard, London, Meridian announced MQA, a new digital processing scheme. Bob Stuart, founder of Meridian, explained that it improved digital sound quality, yet reduced file sizes at the same time.

COMING SOON...

 

Here is Icon Audio's latest amplifier, the MB81, demonstrating what valve amplifier designers dream about in their spare time. In the case of David Shaw, who heads Icon Audio, it is an amplifier equipped with huge Russian GU81 transmitter valves. He built a pair for his own use and we finally managed to prise them away from him for review (just a few weeks mind!).
    Each monoblock weighs 55kgs and is a three man lift, so even getting them into our studio for this shot required a team. Think big. Power output measures 200 Watts apiece. You can read our review of them soon, hopefully in our March issue if all goes well. So keep your eye open for HI-Fi World, ask your news agent to order it, or buy on-line.
