Time to put up this post as 2013 is just around the corner....
Best Accessory of the Year: Dalby Record Weight
Best components of the Year: Tidal Agoria
This year I have skipped many super crazy gears, power cords and ground wires so it is not a very challenging thing for me to choose. As an observer, the streaming of the products from AE in 2012 is non-stop and become more diversified. On top of the evolvement of their house products like Lizst from Cessaro, new Olympic Reference and FMR phono by Argento, Agoria, Impulse by Tidal, Virtu series by DaVinci, we saw new brands of turntables, tonearms, preamp, speakers and even the most recently CAS (which I cannot escape unfortunately!)...Come on...this is a crazy collection of exotics stuff to die for !! That keeps me away from my early retirement !!
