Qobuz Hi-Res Lossless Music — Bonus Great Audiophile Gift

Qobuz Hi-Res Music Makes A Great Audfiophile Gift

And so beginning as Qobuz streamlines its monthly offering to one $14.99 plan ($12.50 per month with a yearly plan) that includes unlimited access to its entire Hi-Res Music and CD lossless catalog streaming. This provides music lovers up to 24-bit/192kHz streaming for Hi-Res Music and 16-bit/44.1kHz for 1980's technology CD, which is better than 1996's lossy compressed MP3. With Qobuz's maximum quality plan now available for one accessible price, Qobuz is the first streaming service to say goodbye to the increasingly archaic MP3. Neil Young, a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member artist whose early support and ongoing enthusiasm for Hi-Res are well-documented, says "Qobuz sounds great! Qobuz was one of the earliest Hi-Res streamers. Their new offer is another big step towards making Hi-Res streaming available at the same cost as MP3 streaming today."

Gingko Audio Acoustic Resonance Clarifier (ARCH) — Great Audiophile Gift

The unique shape of the patented ARCH Acoustic Resonance Clarifier ($199 to $599) and its material construction make it an effective vibration control base for speakers and heavy audio components. Ginko Audio's ARCH is constructed from a lossy material that dissipates vibration across the audio frequency spectrum. Its design is a curved shape with two ends that rest on the floor at an angle, thus minimizing transferred energy from the cabinet to the ground. In addition, the ARCH flexes under the weight of the speaker as the latter vibrates, further reducing the transferred energy. Read about the ARCH Technology and how it works. For a more detailed explanation of why it performs better than conventional speaker spikes, read this White Paper.

FiiO M3K Hi-Res Player And BTR3 Bluetooth Amplifier — Great Audiophile Gift

Being an old timer in battery powered portable audio, including everything from a brand new 1970 Panasonic transistor radio to the world's first portable CD player (Sony D5 in 1985) and toyed with Diamond Rio mp3 player (1999), I am truly impressed at these two under $100 offerings. While there's bragging rights with the latest and greatest (and overly heavy imho) 'reference devices' that are big, overly bulky, and frankly hard to justify at lofty $3000(!) pricing for some, FiiO's M3K portable Hi-Res Audio music player and BTR3 Bluetooth amplifier at $69.99 each give you two ways to enhance your enjoyment of music at very reasonable pricing.

Etekcity Auto-Ranging Clamp Digital Multimeter — Great Audiophile Gift

Everyone who deals with electricity and electronics needs a good multimeter. While we'd love to have a Fluke, they are generally over $300 for a proper setup (Fluke on Amazon here). For those of us who only occasionally use a multimeter, or for normal to light duty use, we present to you the Etekcity Auto-Ranging Clamp Digital Multimeter ($27). This meter accurately measures AC/DC voltage, only for AC current (not for DC current), resistance, and also provides diode and continuity tests.
