  1. Focal Stellia Headphones Review

    Focal Stellia Headphones Review
    Closed-Back Utopia? Yes. Utopia? No.  Let me now explain in detail. In 2017, Focal came to Moon Audio to introduce the pre-production units of the Focal Utopia and the Focal Elear.

    Chord Hugo M Scaler Review - Eureka I Can Hear

    Chord Hugo M Scaler Initial Review. Soon I'll hit the big 50. I don't feel like a "fifty-year-old," but there are signs. A year ago my vision dived over a cliff. An optician confirmed the dive. She prescribed progressive bifocals for farsightedness. Working on cable designs and circuit modifications requires sharp vision.  Why tell you about aging eyes? Looking down through...

    Focal Elegia Headphones Review

    Elegia Headphones Review - Photo's don't do the Focal Elegia headphone justice. Their look and feel, something I love, is impossible to convey in a photograph.
