Following on from the review in Hifi Pig, Steve Dickinson has auditioned the Nico EVO on behalf of Hifi+ magazine. The model is the standmount in the Artisan range from the Memphis based company but not designed just to fill a gap before the floorsatnders, it has been designed to be the best standmount it can be. Just as with all EgglestonWorks models they are hand crafted to order and are available in custom colours should you wish to match it to your classic Alfa Romeo or bang up to date Tesla. In other words, hand made products at an area of the market where the big corporations give you (very well) mass produced products.

Hegel H120 is reviewed by David Price for Stereonet, and it is safe to say he likes it. In my opinion the H120 is a great balance of performance and value so I’m glad to see David pick up on this amongst the other virtues of the product.

In the latest edition of Hifi Choice magazine (460), Hegel H120 receives the editors choice accolade. In the review David Vivian writes “The Hegel does the big picture/fine detail thing better than any amp close to its price” and “It might sit in the lowly part of Hegel’s amplifier range, but the H120 delivers as much excellence as many will ever need”. The overall conclusion is “Another highly desirable Hegel that ticks all the boxes and then some” This is the model that garnered much praise at the recent Bristol Hifi showBristol Hifi show, and I love the balance of performance and cost.
The superb compact seperates from the M2Tech Rock Stars series left John Scott at Hifi Pig suitably impressed. Read his words here
