We’re betting that Simaudio has a copy, so great an example of the breed is the i-7. It’s built superbly, imposingly styled, costs a lot, and – most importantly – sounds like a slice of heaven.</p> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-pricing"><legend>Pricing</legend><div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-test-price"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> £4,750.00 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-ratings"><legend>Ratings</legend><div class="field field-type-hcmreviewrating-rating field-field-overall-rating"> <div class="field-label">Overall rating:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="hcmrating-default">10 stars</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>Review Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-verdict"> <div class="field-label">Verdict:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Provided the rest of your system is up to scratch, you won’t be disappointed with this stellar amp. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /review/simaudio-moon-i-7 </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/simaudio-moon-i-7/review" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/simaudio-moon-i-7/review#comments Moon i-7 Simaudio TV and Hifi accessories Wed, 15 Nov 2006 06:00:00 +0000 Simon Osborne-Walker 3483 at http://www.stuff.tv Simaudio Moon Equinox http://www.stuff.tv/simaudio-moon-equinox/review <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> This funny-looking bit of kit carries a hefty pedigree.

So, the company should have a decent idea of what sounds good. </p> <p>The Equinox is the Canadian firm’s most affordable CD player, and though office opinions were split over the visual appeal – the aesthetics are based on the pricey-as-it-is-lumpy £5950 Moon Eclipse – the overall quality of the build received an all-round thumbs-up. The 10kg case feels very solid, and key functions operate with satisfying precision. </p> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-pricing"><legend>Pricing</legend><div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-test-price"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> £3,995.00 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-ratings"><legend>Ratings</legend><div class="field field-type-hcmreviewrating-rating field-field-overall-rating"> <div class="field-label">Overall rating:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="hcmrating-default">10 stars</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>Review Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-verdict"> <div class="field-label">Verdict:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> If you spend ages locked away listening to tunes, this beast won’t give you earache – just look past the cheesy remote. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /review/simaudio-moon-equinox </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/simaudio-moon-equinox/review" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/simaudio-moon-equinox/review#comments Moon Equinox Simaudio Wed, 15 Nov 2006 06:00:00 +0000 Simon Osborne-Walker 3481 at http://www.stuff.tv
