First impressions of a portable headphone combo for audiophiles using the Clarus CODA USB DAC with the Audeze LCD-1 planar-magnetic over-ear headphones.

CD Players

The $1,000 Pro-Ject CD Box DS2 CD player is very versatile; CD player, transport, and DAC. But does it make sense in 2021? Indeed...

Bookshelf Speakers

The new Lumina collection brings the artistry of Sonus faber loudspeakers to a much wider audience for a lot less money.

Over-Ear Headphones

If your headphone budget tops out at $400, the HiFiMan Sundara might be the best option right now in audiophile headphones.

DACs

The AudioQuest DragonFly Cobalt DAC faces a long line of dongle DAC competitors in 2021 but is still the one to beat.
