The name Manley has been legendary in audiophile and professional audio circles for many years now, and I recall my dad lusting after VTL and Manley high-powered tube gear when I was younger, not just because of its sound, but also because it was expensive. But, not so expensive that it was totally out of reach for the average Joe who saved their pennies.

What the open back brings to the table over the closed back is really what you’d expect: cleaner midrange, less of that ‘closed’ sound and darkness, and a trading of some bass thump for transient snap.

I attended the National Association of Music Merchants show for a few days this year, mostly just to see friends and browse for keyboards, but there were some interesting headphone-related developments on the main convention floor hall which did not go unnoticed.

This past Sunday I got the chance to stop by the high-tech equipped Audeze Headquarters and assembly facility located near Santa Ana, which for Los Angeles, is a relatively sedate 40-minute drive from my home.

The emphasis on lighter weight and more efficient materials is big for ZMF.. The Closed back Verite’s Magnesium chassis and wood selection have obviously paid off as the headphones are noticeably lighter than other ZMF headphones I’ve listened to.

iFi’s recently released Zen line includes two products – the ZenBlue, a Bluetooth receiver and amp, and the unit on review; the ZenDAC, which is an integrated DAC/Amp.

Meze's leap from the 99 Classic and Neo Classic to the Empyrean was a big surprise, and the subsequent move into audiophile-oriented IEMs was quite unexpected as well, and now Meze is trickling this flagship technology down into more attainably-priced products.

But it’s good torture, don’t worry. All Jokes aside, Rafe and I have been discussing playlists and music a lot lately, and I thought it might be a great time to slowdown from the deluge of recent-releases and put together a playlist which represents a small peek into tracks used as a reference for listening on reviews.

Whatever your stance on the ‘when does the decade really end’ debate that rages amongst self-righteous keyboard warriors on Facebook meme pages, there is one that cannot be denied: there simply isn’t a lot of music released in December.

I’ve given up the ghost a bit by naming this InnerFidelity’s Product of the Year already, so it might be helpful to think of this review in the context of ancient Greek theatre, where the audience already knows how the story will end, but comes to appreciate the details of the journey.
