I love the Astell&Kern AK240, it sounds lovely and the user interface is to die for...unfortunately it's price way too high for mere mortals. Answer: two new lower cost models.

And yes...yes...yes, they have the same extraordinary UI as the AK240!

Justin Wilson, CEO of HeadAmp, wasn't able to make the trip to Newport this year. Not to worry, long-time headphone enthusiast and nature photographer extraodinaire Peter James manned the booth like a champ.

Oh my, the GS-X Mk2 is gorgeous!

Generally, I try to do show reports of vendors I haven't done a show report on recently. I did do a show report on CEntrance not too long ago, and wasn't going to do a spot this time...

...but Michael Goodman has been busy, busy, busy. I just had to do it.

Been watching these guys for a while now, and I think they've made some significant strides. It's not easy to make a low-cost electrostatic headphone system—these guys are sure getting there.

My ears perk up when I hear "current mode amplifier", there just seems to be so much promise there. I wondered what Questyle's take on it was.

I've been an Amarra user for quite a while now and it's served me nicely. Haven't given it much though lately, it just works.

I need to pay more attention, the Amarra 3.0 release has some sweet new features!

This whole vinyl resurgence thing is off my radar. It seems so distant from the personal audio journey I've been on.

Maybe I got that wrong.

And/or VPI may have just gotten it right.

Slowly but surely Alpha Design Labs has been bolstering their headphone offerings.

Looks like some pretty good stuff coming up!
