In mid-April, a Hifi show took place in Ambassador Hotel Kaohsiungin, Taiwan. The local MBL dealer showed the Radialstrahler Loudspeakers 101 E MK II. In a second room our distributor Sound Art showed the loudspeakers 126 with the Cadenza Line.
The Taiwanese magazine U-Audiopublished on the opportunity a report about the MBL dealer in Kaohsiung.
Vinyle & Audio was so impressed with the sound of MBL at the Paris AV Show last Fall, they decided to conduct a private listening test with Jean-Michel Jarré “Oxygene” at Music Hall in Paris. Martial Hernandez and Thierry Samoil demoed the album in their showroom with the 101 E MKII powered by Noble Line electronics.Original
In the latest issue of Image Hifi the CD-DAC N31 was extensively reviewed. Ekkehard Strauss concludes:
“MBL answers the question about the digital heart of a high-end system with such a drum beat that I have no choice but to highly recommend an extensive listening session of the N31 CD-DAC – I don’t know of a better all-in-one solution at the moment.”Read more (German)
The editor Moses (Dàitiān kǎi) from the Taiwanese magazine U-Audio published a review about the N21 Stereo Power Amplifier. He concludes the following:
“I will vote for N21. It does not only has the powerful driving force of a transistor amplifier, but does also has a quiet, steady and extremely dark background, bringing out many details. It does also has a natural tone and a mellow texture, and even that its tone is as sweet as a vacuum tube amp, it does retains an extremely clean and transparent texture.”Original
We are pleased to announce that The Absolute Sound’s 2022 Editors’ Choice Awards have been given to twelve MBL products. Many thanks to The Absolute Sound for the honor and recognition.

The US-American magazine Stereophile reviewed the Radialstrahler Loudspeaker 120:
Julie Mullins, Stereophile
“Wallflowers they ain’t: Immersive and involving, these speakers are built for fun. Their sound, though always substantial, tends to stay detailed without getting thick or muddy…Their energy was palpable, visceral, like live music, adding to the sense of immersion. It gave more muscle to rock ’n’ roll. The soundwaves’ energy was like a gentle force field. Or not so gentle…The MBL 120s can deliver sound with involving intensity even on quiet, subtle material…If the MBL 120 were a book, it would be one that was hard to put down: I kept listening when I should have been going to bed—or finishing this review. The MBL 120s can be addictive. I’m not here to be a bad influence, but if you’re not careful, you might need to call your nearest dealer.”
John Atkinson, Technical Editor
“The MBL 120’s measured performance confirms that this is a true omnidirectional design.”
Neil Gader, editor of the U.S. magazine The Absolute Sound reviewed the Radialstrahler 126 in the current issue.
“Sonically, you enter a whole new world when you light up the MBL 126—or any Radialstrahler, for that matter…At trade shows I’ve watched enthusiasts enter MBL exhibits with a hushed solemnity and walk away glowing, as if they’d undergone a spiritual experience…no one should mistake its whimsical, droid-like appearance for anything other than an audiophile loudspeaker of the most serious sonic intentions and pedigree…in terms of imaging, as cliché as this sounds, 126 flat out disappears from the room, kind of like, well, poof…Though MBL’s 126 is designed for the parlor rather than the palace, it’s as good as anything this esteemed company has ever made. In spite of its humble size, it is truly a statement loudspeaker of the first order. If you consider yourself a thoughtful audiophile and are preparing to take the plunge into this price range, don’t even consider making a move until you’ve auditioned the MBL 126. It is must listening.”Read more
Due to health and safety concerns, we have decided not to participate at CEDIA 2021. We regret this decision, and hope to see you again at one of the other upcoming shows.

Jason Serinus, Reviewer:
“While I’m not convinced that there’s a bright side to everything, the N11 shone a light during the dark days of the pandemic and delivered week upon week of listening pleasure…The N11 could very well be a performance you never want to end. It’s a looker, for sure, one whose presence in my system I already miss.”
John Atkinson, Technical Editor
“…Its performance on the test bench reveals the widest-bandwidth, widest-dynamic-range, lowest-noise, lowest-distortion preamplifier I have encountered.”

The occasion was the recently presented MBL Roon module, which received great popularity from visitors of this year’s TAA International High End Show.Original
The year’s Munich High End show was filled with a lot of great moments, beginning with our incredible annual jazz-dinner concert which welcomes a record number of invited guests, some wonderful live performances at our booth thanks to Concert Köln, plenty of business meetings with our much appreciated distributors and dealers, and, most of all, some amazing demos on each of our two systems, the 101E with the Noble Line and the Reference line powering the 101 X-tremes.
Jonathan Valin from The Absolute Sound wrote “MBL X-Tremes (€200k), driven by MBL 9011 amps and 6010 D preamplifier and sourced by an MBL DAC (only), were, as usual, simply superb—very airy and spacious and alive, without a trace of box sound and, despite the four chassis and omnidirectional radiation-pattern of the drivers, possessed of excellent imaging.”Read more

“The best performance with High Resolution data files.”
The new Noble Line N31 CD-DAC has received a rare A+ rating in the Stereophile April, 2018 issue.
John Atkinson concluded that digital sound doesn’t get any better than what he heard from the N31. Furthermore he noted that the MBL offered 21 bits of resolution—the current state of the art of digital audio. This prompted John Atkinson the measurer to agree with John Atkinson the listener: “Digital audio engineering doesn’t get any better.”
In the April, 2018 issue of the magazine Stereophile two of our products received recommendations in the following categories:
“The Best Audio Gear of 2018″

John Atkinson, editor of the U.S. magazine Stereophile reviews the Noble Line CD-DAC N31:
“…with older digital recordings (“Southern Cross,” from Crosby, Stills & Nash’s CSN (4 CDs, 16/44.1; 320kbps AAC le, Atlantic 82319-2), the N31 sounded simply magnificent….as before, the N31 allowed sonic shortcomings to step to one side, letting the rock’n’roll magic flow forth. And again, the N31’s presentation of detail was superb”
“As I say in the “Measurements” sidebar, digital audio engineering doesn’t get any better—nor, I feel, does digital sound quality. At $15,400 it may be expensive, but MBL’s Noble Line N31 is beyond reproach.”Read more (German) Read more
