Cerwin Vega’s P1000X: P-Series Power in a Smaller Package

Cerwin-Vega created a definitive product line with its P Series last year, and as of this past summer, they expanded it with the P1000X, a two-way, bi-amped full-range bass-reflex speaker.

Denon Aims High With MC6000MK2

Denon introduced its DJ MC6000MK2 controller/digital mixer as a successor to the MK1. While it’s being advertised as being fully integrated with Serato, it enters with a slim yet solid steel design, plenty of features (you might even say too many, given its size), and multiple upgrades.

If details go into a piece of gear’s design, will the sound be as equally high-quality and fine-tuned with such meticulousness? In the case of the KRK VXT6, a two-way active studio monitor with a six-inch Kevlar woofer, this notion proves to be true. Even when it comes down to [...]

Stanton CMP.800 Review: High-Quality, Decently-Priced Cross-Media Player

Based on events from Stanton’s parent company Gibson Audio and Pioneer, the question regarding gear these days isn’t so much “Does it seem authentic, like playing vinyl?” but rather [...]
