Sublime
26 November 2023  |  Adrian

These are truly exceptional speakers and perhaps the best way to experience the ATC sound signature. They are substantial but not overly so,fairly easy to position. I spent a fair amount of time experimenting with distance from the wall,toe in etc. In reality the end position was similar to the starting position which was a minor compromise between living room aesthetic and pure sound quality. They are neutral but not clinically so,there is a nice blend between studio clarity and warmth that makes listening enjoyable,non fatiguing. Bass is tight,has a physical presence but it is the mids that separate these speakers from the pack. I would describe these as non genre specific,they sound as good playing rock music as they do classical. They do have to be played at a decent volume to enjoy the clarity and depth they offer,and they donít make poor recordings sound like anything other than poor recordings. Feed them a good quality source file and they sing. Mine are linked to a Gold Note streamer as a Roon end point and it is as good a combination as I can realistically afford. Customer service,advice,from Peter at Igloo was first class making the whole experience pleasurable. I will have many happy years with these speakers with no itch to upgrade,so an expensive investment that will prove to be a shrewd one.

The best Audiophile Headphones I have experienced for the price
09 September 2023  |  Damien

What a sonic feast for the ears. A good bump up in Bass, from previous models of Hifiman Headphones I have tried. The Soundstage is extremely expansive. You can hear absolutely everything and pick out the placement of instruments with everything being projected with extreme clarity. The Mids are beautifully clean and comforting. The highs don't seem as bright as other models from Hifiman. I really do enjoy the overall sound and it has made me want to check out a lot more of my collection trying these Headphones instead of listening via Speakers. Highly Recommend and are probably on par with models that are a lot more expensive. A must buy at this price range.

A new way of listening
17 August 2023  |  David

Bought these as a bit of a gamble, just read the reviews and took a chance without auditioning them. Good decision !
Listening to them side by side with my old Monitor Audios... not a step change in sound but certainly more 'life' to the music.
I feared that driving them with an old 'average' amp was going to be a problem, but no, it coped with ease.
The music, especially live recordings are more natural, the individual instruments sound... 'individual' rather than compressed together to form the music. You certainly feel that instead of listening to the sound of the band... you are listening to the musicians in the band.
Love my Maggies...

The baby that roars
22 July 2023  |  Tony

Not my first Maggie speaker. These truly are excellent sounding speakers. Take time place them correctly for best results and you won't be disappointed. The base in my small room is deep and punchy. Certainly gives boxes a good run for money. Add the size of the stage. Vocals are amazing. I'm using a Cambridge Audio Topaz SR10/ Rega Apollo R CD. These Maggies are hard to drive and the amp certainly lets me know. Time for more power. And even better sound quality.

Just keeps getting better!
13 July 2023  |  Leigh

The reviews are right, this amp sounds great.
When first turned on it sounded good, after the first 5 hrs it sounded better. Now itís done over 200hrs and itís sounding great and still seems to be getting better, soundstage big and detailed, ultra linear has the edge on detail and separation but triode is just sweet and gets your feet tapping still with good detail and soundstage - I love this amp!

Perfect addition to any vinyl collection
14 May 2023  |  Steve

Wow, what can I say. I recently got back into vinyl after a 30+ year hiatus. After installing my Linn Sondek I knew I would want to treat her right by not torturing the Troika cartridge with grubby records so I picked up a Pro-ject VCS2 Alu, it sort of did the job on many LPs but it got awkward, the vaccuum was worryingly loud., the felt on the arm got wet which meant when the platter was slowing down during drying you had to retract the arm while the record was still moving otherwise you ended up with damp smudge marks on the vinyl. Also the results were not consistent so sometimes it felt like I was going through the motions for a shinier record but not necessarily a cleaner one. So I took my search online for something better and it seems there really is no better than the Degritter MKIi. It does everything, tells you everything and the results are amazing. I automatically clean every record I get now. I have cleaned records for a friend who has been over the moon with the results, infact he told me if had the chance to use one before he probably would have kept some of the records he sold on previously because of record noise. The most noticeable difference has been removing noise from both new and used records and pops from older records.
I couldn't be without it, my equipment and my records deserve being treated with care. It comes at a price but so does this hobby.
Thanks to Igloo for providing a top service and getting my unit to me very quickly and securely.

MiniDSp UMIK-1
08 May 2023  |  Mitch

I have been fitting my listening room with acoustic panels and using this mic in conjunction with Room Equalisation Wizard (free) to measure progress. The MiniDSp works perfectly, although one needs a full sized mic stand to place the mic at exactly the right positions. Operating instructions of both the mic and REW are good, but it is quite steep learning curve - good fun though!

Exposure 2510
19 April 2023  |  David

The Exposure sounds fantastic! Fairly neutral, perhaps with a slight warmth. I upgraded from a more entry level Rotel integrated and whilst at 3x the cost you would expect a significant improvement, I was taken aback by the vast difference. Much greater clarity and definition, improved dynamics and soundstage width, and I can just hear so much more in recordings. At 75w (not huge) the amp still sounds and feels very capable and has decent grip on bass. The only problem is it has now got me thinking about upgrading other components in my setup to keep pace. At this price I genuinely cannot think of any negatives.

PSM 156
26 March 2023  |  Lyndon

Swapped from a non-filtering distribution strip; difference was immediately apparent. Blacker background, music has more depth front to back. Tracks have greater 3D; instruments appear 3 dimensional, rather than a collection of instruments pasted on to a 2D canvass.

Track components also seem more articulate than without the 156, and the space of the recording is more apparent; the ambience of the room is easier to discern - greater atmosphere/emotion.

The PSM 156 to my mind should be considered a component, as important as any other in a system, it is that good.

Great product, no hyperbole, it does what it is advertised as doing. Now for Puritan's Grounding products

What more can I say?
21 March 2023  |  Derek

The previous reviews here have gone into ample detail on the capabilities of these headphones. I'm early in my burn-in journey but these headphones are such a welcome upgrade from my previous classically driven headphones. The clarity is phenomenal, I've paired them with a Matrix Audio Elements x2 dac/amp/streamer and they're absolutely shining.

I'd always been warned that planars felt significantly heavier, especially with long use, but I've had these on all day while working and have noticed no difference from wearing other headphones like HD660s/HD800s, the HE-1000s are a beautifully designed piece of kit with fantastically ergonomic head fitting and exceptional soundstage and quality.

Astounding piece of kit
21 March 2023  |  Derek

The element x2 streamer is a meticulously designed unit with exceptional sound and fantastic software, I plugged it in to my HDMI source (ARC), connected the network cable and it immediately sprang into action, did a self update to the latest-and-greatest firmware and then immediately got out of my way so I could get down to business.

My Hifiman HE-1000 v2 headphones absolutely shine with the x2, the clarity and soundstage of the combination is absolutely stunning.

The integration with local audio sources and Tidal streaming services worked seamlessly and took me seconds to setup via the Matrix mobile app.

Can't recommend this unit enough, understated but exceptionally qualified piece of kit.

Beyond Expectations Sound quality
12 February 2023  |  Reuben

Igloo Audio were superb from start to finish of this transaction. Outstanding communication, knowledge and before and after purchase care, offering their 5% on this my first purchase and delivery all the way to Argyle and Bute, Scotland free. The ATCSCM40 passives have transformed my system offering, more clarity, exposure, timing and insight into my chosen source subjects. I'm listening to mainly vocals, acoustic and amplified instrumentation through my speakers, therefore don't need bass heavy speakers, however these produce plenty. They do require more juice from the amplifiers, so definitely 150w per channel plus. The cabinet stand (angled and integrated), spikes and magnet grill are top notch and protect those stunning (made in England) drivers and beautiful 75mm mid (star of show make). The 3-way binding posts were a bit of a tight fit with my double x NBS jumpers, but all running superbly. These speakers also have spot on dimensions for smaller rooms and the cherry finish is better in the flesh than adverts. ATC also make registration available and warranty. Recommended A+++++

Exposure 3510 Mono Power Amplifiers
02 January 2023  |  Neil

I have maybe taken the slightly unorthodox choice of pairing the 3510 mono blocks with the Exposure 2510 integrated amp as opposed to using the 3510 pre amp. I have found that the mono blocks add more grip and authority to the 2510, with additional detail to the lower mid and bass frequencies with a pleasant feeling of effortlessness when turning the volume up.
I was happy with the performance of the 2510 on its own but adding the 3510 mono blocks have taken it to the next level. As being used with high sensitivity loudspeakers I was keen to preserve the reserved quality of the 2510 in the high frequencies, enjoying that it's presentation is not too harsh or fatiguing (possibly owing to its passive pre amp section). I was pleased to find that this quality remained intact when partnering with the 3510 monos, which offer a slightly warm but detailed listening experience not unlike the 2510 but more expansive with additional weight to the sound. Overall I have found them be very nuanced performers and a welcome addition to existing set up. Very recommended for those who already enjoy the Exposure sound and are looking to upgrade or those seeking a fuller, wider presentation.

Customer support is great, fast support and always receive shipping updates from them and the courier.

So far iím 110 hours of burn in into these headphones out of the recommended 180 - 200 hours on the hifiman site. The headphones have changed 5 times so far; It sounds like a completely different unit from the first 40 hours.

Couldnít be happier! Highly recommend this company and this hifiman model.

Graham Audio LS6f
28 October 2022  |  Andrew

Hi, after consulting with Peter at Igloo Audio I eventually took delivery of a pair of Graham Audio LS6f's (Chartwell monitors).
They are finished in natural rosewood and the finish is stunning.
Sound quality is remarkable. The main word that kept coming to mind as I went through my music recordings was "correctness".
I have owned several pairs of loudspeakers both dynamic and panel loudspeakers.. The LS6f's are on a different level. They are natural, non fatiguing but also very revealing and as stated earlier sound "correct". They can be used very near the front wall and toed in towards the listening position. I don't use the spikes. They are a loudspeaker you connect up and then just focus on your music, whatever genre that may be. At last, the end of the upgrading path.

Exposure 2510 integrated amplifier
25 October 2022  |  Neil

I have found the 2510 to be an excellent sounding amplifier and great value for the money. I have used it with high efficiency loudspeakers and have found the volume high enough, but those with harder to drive speakers may find they need more power than the 75wpc available. The sound is most expansive in the mid ranges with slightly rolled off treble and a nice thick sounding bass, although not the most detailed bass you'll find. Where this amplifier excels is it's beautiful tone, it's got the most amazing natural sound which is slightly warm - rather like a good valve amp. You can listen for hours without fatigue but still access all the dynamism, depth and soundstage of a high end amplifier.

Graham Audio LS8/1 Loudspeakers
02 October 2022  |  Terence

My criteria for any loudspeaker is that it can reproduce acoustic instruments (and voices) with some degree of believability.

From the start the LS8/1's showed promise, and have improved considerably in the short while I have had them. Whilst sceptical about many claims made for "hi-fi" components there does seem to be some truth in the idea of running in (these) loudspeakers. An initial slight brashness has become (already) a sweet edge on string instruments (especially solo violin) Of course much of this depends on the actual recorded quality which in most cases we can only guess at! Vocals can already be excellent. Wind and brass instruments are also nicely "drawn"

The speakers seem capable of reproducing percussion instruments quite convincingly, with adequate power and considerable detail.

I have had experience of high-quality analogue and digital equipment including many recording sessions. I think these loudspeakers would fit in well in that environment.

I already rate these as very good, and am hoping they continue to improve. Very few loudspeakers really get close to my criteria. These seem to be a good attempt, and to my ears, among a select few which (for some music) could be used as a genuine reference.

I have found the Puritan 156 to be a great success. I am running a Lumin streamer to a pair of monobloc valve amps and active stereo subs. The Puritan removed all hums and buzzes from the power amps and I perceive a noticeable 'tightening' of the bass - and perhaps a better soundstage too. And it is great to be able to run the entire system through one mains socket and be confident enough to leave it permanently switched on. Highly recommended.

05 April 2022  |  William

I purchased these speakers on a sale or return basis, as they werenít available for dealer audition. I was particularly interested in both the vocal and acoustic instrument performance - I replacing my outgoing B&W 705 s2 speakers. Initially I was unconvinced, as seemed initially a little reticent at first, but as the days wore on they opened up and not only gave the characteristics I was looking for, but also a bigger soundstage than the B&Wís. They perform well with LP, CD & Streaming sources and work superbly with my Naim Nova (& Gold Note P10 in particular). The presentation gives real depth and placement of instruments, so that the overall performance is very satisfying. Thumbs up to Igloo for securing them and delivering so quickly..Excellent Customer Service.

A turntable upgrade has been long overdue and after speaking with Peter and taking into account my current system he recommended the Clearaudio Concept MC. The record player is a thing of beauty and so easy to set up. The build smacks of quality engineering so you know it is going to sound great.

Record after record was played and the enjoyment just got better and better. I cannot recommend this turntable highly enough.

Great entry point for Optical
08 November 2021  |  Martin

There is a lot I could say about the ADOT kit, but for me the most important thing is that it provides a comprehensive, safe and reliable entrťe into into optical connection of audio equipment. There's a comprehensive Ďhow toí guide showing you how all the components connect. Most importantly, this is backed up by excellent support. I did need to talk to the support guy and he was very knowledgeable and helpful. And thatís the value here. Yes, you can buy the individual components more cheaply from electronics suppliers (and Amazon for that matter), but if you are new to this stuff you wouldnít have the Ďhow toí guide or the specialised audio/HiFi support.

The ADOT clearly demonstrates what an optical link can do to clean-up an internet connection. All aspects of sound quality are improved, making streamed music nigh on indistinguishable from local CD or SACD playback. Iím a big fan of Qobuz Hi-Rez streaming and I now view an optical connection as essential to get the best sound - you can really hear the difference something like 24/96 resolution makes.

The rest of my system uses Gutwire mains cables, which have proven a good match in general, but I was struggling to get a balanced sound from my Gold Note DS-10 with PS-10 and Iíve found digital components to be highly affected by physical isolation and mains, so I decided to try this Puritan cable. After a few hours burn-in the Gold Note is noticeably more balanced with a generally more realistic presentation. I compared Dave Brubeckís Time Out to my reference 45rpm vinyl edition and the Gold Note was suddenly much closer to the ideal tonal balance and more able to hint at the nuances in every instrument that the vinyl front-end so readily serves up. A great value solution to a distracting problem. Mains cables are very component and system specific so it may or may not work for you, but if you have a similar problem, itís a relatively low cost way to try and treat it.

Great speakers by any measure
03 April 2021  |  Simon

These are tiny wonders. To be honest, I wasn't expecting these to be as good as they are. I don't really have any criticisms. If you take into account the fact the boxes are small, you can't really expect cavernous bass, but there's never a sense the bass is lacking, unlike other small speakers I've used. They're really punchy and exciting, but also fine at low volume. I bet in years to come we'll look back on this model as a masterpiece.

The service from Igloo was, as usual, exemplary. My favourite hifi dealer nowadays.

Iíd dabbled with mains conditioners about twenty years ago and found they all compressed dynamics, turning music into a clean but lifeless lump.

More recently I noticed that my system often sounded better late at night and could sound flat at other times. We have plenty of digital kit in our household these days and I wondered whether mains conditioning had come on in the last twenty years. All the reviews I could find spoke positively about the Puritan and the price seemed fair, so I took the plunge. As ever, Iglooís service was fast and comms were great.

The Puritan is a revelation! I can honestly say that if you do not have this mains conditioner in your system and your mains are anything like mine, then you are not hearing what your system can do. The changes in my system were not subtle. Every instrument gained more space, layers of complex percussion could be heard rising and disappearing with long sustain. The improvements were very noticeable from my £20K vinyl front-end and even more noticeable on my much more humble Gold Note digital front-end. Scale improved and new details were evident. It didnít make it a match for the vinyl front-end and it didnít change the underlying tone of the streamer/DAC but it did bring its scale a step closer to the vinyl spinner.

Iíve recommended the Puritan to my audiophile friend whoís recently ordered one from Igloo, so it will be interesting to hear his experiences in a very different system to mine and in a different part of the country.

The Evo PSU has been deployed with my DS-10 since I bought the latter, so I donít have a comparison with a base DS-10, but I can say that the PSU ensures the DS-10 is ghostly quiet and gives plenty of room around instruments. It doesnít turn the DS-10 into a dynamics monster though.

This is my first experience of streaming and itís proving a great facility to try new albums and artists and to fill gaps in my collection. I tried a NAD C658 prior to buying the DS-10 and found it very uneven-handed, sounding good on hi-res but flat on 16/44. The DS-10 with Evo PSU is much more consistent. It produces an open and friendly sound with excellent imaging. The sound lacks the dynamics and grandeur of that from my much more expensive vinyl front-end, but thatís the case with every digital device Iíve used. Overall, for casual listening and exploring new material, itís very good value, well made and easy to use. One issue Iíve had is that I have limited bandwidth and the DS-10 doesnít cache the stream if you pause it so I sometimes have problems playing 24/192 streams, which is frustrating.

My search for amplification enough to drive some ATC SCM40s led me to call Peter at Igloo Audio. Really glad I did.

He took time to enquire about my listening environment and what I was looking for in terms of sound quality etc. So glad I considered his recommendation for an Exposure 3010 series integrated amp. I ended up going for this pre-amp and these matching mono blocks. They make an excellent partnership and I think they must be 'tuned' together or something because they work so well.

The ultimate recommendation was by my OH who immediately commented on our first listen how clear and enjoyable the music was -delighted. This is turning me into a music first kind of HiFi fan. Love it!

Small But Powerful
01 October 2020  |  Mr

I currently own a Linn Sondek turntable with an Akito arm and AT440MLb cartridge, with a pair of Epos K3 loudspeakers.
These were originally being used with a Roksan Blak amplifier with my HP laptop connected via an Audio Quest Cinnamon USB lead for streaming music.

On connecting the Sprout, the difference was immediate, with a superb soundstage, deep and defined bass extension with the higher frequencies showing extreme clarity without any fatigue.
I find myself constantly playing my vinyl, exploring the nuances and details on each record I had not yet heard. The phono stage is MM and needs no phono amp [I tested it with my Simaudio Moon 110lp phono amp to no benefit] while the DAC is fantastic at extracting every bit of information.
By comparison, I found the Blak a little harsh on the higher frequencies and the bass a little confused making it difficult to identify the bass guitar apart from the bass drum. Not so with the Sprout.
The delivery and timing have great weight and a real punch. This may be a diminutive piece of kit but it punches way beyond its appearance and accommodates all the inputs I need at a price which shames comparable amplifiers at three or four times its price.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Good sound but comfort issues
22 August 2020  |  Danny

I bought these headphones to see if cheaper planar types were any good. In short, they are. detail retrieval is excellent, the imaging is not too narrow and there is a real sense of spaciousness about the sound. However, for me as a glasses wearer the comfort is not quite there. The pressure from the headband is quite high and after a while can become uncomfortable. I suspect this would not be so much of an issue for someone not wearing glasses.

Ugly Duckling with a Sweet Song
14 August 2020  |  John

The Lindemann Limetree Bridge, like the other items in the series, will not be winning any beauty contests and may look a little out-of-place nestling beside traditional amplifiers. That is the worst thing I have to say.

Coupled with a Chord Qutest DAC, the sound quality produced by this humble-looking little box is astonishing. Deep, melodious and taut bass with no hint of boom. Excellent midrange clarity allows you to finally understand song lyrics. Sparkling crisp top end really lets you hear how rimshots on a high hat really sound!

The Android control app is stable and provides speedy assured control of the unit. Press 'Pause' on the app and the music really does stop right away. This is an important 'Plus' for the Limetree as there is no alternative remote control wand.

The combination of the Limetree Bridge and Chord Qutest put far more expensive streamers such as the Naim NDX 2 to shame in terms of pure audio performance. If you can live with the rather dowdy looks, then do not hesitate!

28 June 2020  |  David

I upgraded from a Bluesound Node 2i and after reading good reviews I took a leap of faith on the Aries G1. It's expensive, granted but I didn't want to spend Innous kind of money and have to pay for Roon and so this fitted the bill.

There is no DAC inside but running into my current setup there was an apparent amount of extra detail and a bigger sounds stage and music became more dimensional.

The lightning DS App is great for control and even though the bluesound is amongst the best this is just as good. Feature wise the G1 has plenty and I've made use of the parametric eq enabling my to shape the sound especially at low volumes where the bass and treble need a bit of a lift.

All in all, expenaive but worth it.

Orea Equipment Pucks

I placed three Oreas underneath my preamp/processor and noticed an immediate improvement to the sound. More extension and definition to the bass, more detail to the mid-range and treble, and improved prescence to the reproduction of whatever was playing.
The feet cost 1.5% of the cost of the processor, so they have proved a very worthwhile investment imo.
This begs the question why the manufacturers can't fit, as standard, feet which match the status of their products?

Peter gave sound guidance and the reasoning behind that thought process to aid my decision. So much was discussed over the telephone due to covid 19. Room size listening distance and partnering equipment all played a part in keeping the standard I was used to and improving on it. I am absolutely delighted with the result. Soundstage and control has improved immeasurably and the overall effect is perfect. With the Exposure 3010S2 power amp I now have an infinitely more pleasurable listening experience. Thank you Peter, I shall when circumstances allow be arranging a visit to further explore how I may better my mains electric feed.

Harbeth 30.2 Anniversary Speakers
16 May 2020  |  George

As a long time user of the mighty P3ESR speakers, which offer so much of the Harbeth fabled midrange, I was hesitant about needing to spend anymore for another pair of speakers.
Then came along covid-19 and made me realise life was too short for regrets.
Having chatted with Peter and finding out that Harbeth only had two pairs of the 30.2's left available to buy ... I pulled the trigger.
The purchase was easy and smooth with Igloo Audio and I was pleased to see them turn up on the day promised.
Ok ... so a couple of weeks in and listening to the 30.2's the easiest thing to say is that they sound like the P3ESR's only bigger ... by that I mean soundstage, bass, volume ... I could just go on.
When I look at them and the P3's side by side I'm thinking big brother and little brother together and to me that's what they sound like.
Give them space and plenty of watts and you will be rewarded.
Acoustic music is a delight on them as is male and female voice. I have a pair of Sonus Faber Guarneri Memento speakers which I have always found to be amazing with piano ... the 30.2's are right up there with them.
No getting away from the fact these speakers are expensive and that you can buy other makes for much less - but as I said earlier if covid-19 has demonstrated anything to all of us then it's that life is fragile and too short to have regrets.
Buy with confidence Harbeth's from Igloo Audio.

06 January 2020  |  David

What can i say about these speakers that has not already been written. Only my journey i've been through Dynaudio, Buchardt and PMC bookshelf speakers and i've finally settled on these.

They have a great amount of detail and the way they reproduce music is just lovely. I'm hearing things in my music i never heard before. Separation and soundstage just lovely. I have a very small room where i work and chill (2.5m x 2.2m) and they sound just a good sat at my desk 60cm away from the speakers as on my couch 1.5m away. For nearfield and very nearfield, highly recommended.

They are also good for low level listening, although they do benefit from being given a bit of power and they open up more.

If they have limitations, it's that they have limited bass, not as limited as some i have tested, but limited. I will be using a subwoofer with them. They also allegedly need plenty of power. I have a PS Audio Stella Gain Dac and S300 Power Amp. It clearly drives them loud enough. I will at some point move to class A/B amplification with more headroom as I feel there is more to come from these speakers.

There is no better power amp. Really. I have a pair of these driving the big Graham Audio LS5/8 speakers, and the combination is simply wonderful.

Truly transparent: I am listening to my recordings, not to the equipment.

The little AHB2-s have replaced a pair of beefy Sugden Masterclass MPA-4 Class A monoblocks. The difference in clarity, separation, soundstage, and overall control over the whole frequency range from sub-bass rumbles to hi-hat splashes is night and day. There is not a trace of distortion over the whole frequency range, at any and all volumes.

The AHB2 has killed Class A. At half the price.

I have been a customer of Peter's here at Igloo for several years now, and enjoy his enthusiasm and wide-ranging knowledge of the hifi landscape. A purchase decision is always a two-way conversation, and he has saved me from foolishness on more than one occasion. He is, like me, unimpressed by over-priced audiophile voodoo, and his nicley curated offerings reflect that practical dedication to
the authentic reproduction of the recording for maximum enjoyment of the music.

And that is why he is one of the only hifi dealers in the country offering Benchmark's outstanding kit. These little beauties are not over-priced, not power-hungry, have a discrete livingroom-friendly footprint and take control of a speaker like no other. They are, after all, the amplifiers of choice in the studios of the professionals who make the recordings we listen to.

You won't need another power amplifier.
