FiiO’s M6 Hi-Res DAP is compact and well constructed. It has decent battery life, a small but good selection of hardware buttons, a somewhat programmable interface, and good sound. But it’s not a player that moves me, nor is it one I think that will move you.Read More
Campfire Audio’s new line of earphones meets or surpasses industry leaders in CNC machining and accessory quality. But quality - of build and brand - has always been the core of Campfire Audio. Since Andromeda, high-frequency texture and reach has mediated Campfire Audio’s otherwise warm and robust house sound. Atlas, which punches fast and hard like no Campfire before it, and which crowns the V-shape signature with a mature top, is, in some respects, something of an anti-Andromeda.

I had ample time to touch this one, which is resistant to touch blemishes and corrosion, but which fits just like its predecessor. I'm told that it is a bit brighter, too, which may be right up my alley.
If I pick one up, you can expect a long profile of it on ohm, as well as my fledgeling YouTube channel, Fauxtaku Lounge.
On average, I shoot four to five magazine catalogues a year, the latest of which is Headphone Book's Spring 2018 edition, which tends to go against a white background. This year, a few items went on black, most of which were beautiful. Listed below are both groups.Read More
