Audi RS6 Avant

Kenny Yeo

Audi has been making fast estate cars for over two decades, and the RS6 itself has been around for just about 15 years. This is the third generation RS6 and I’m not going to beat about the bush here, it is probably the best yet. In fact, it is so good that I reckon it could be the only car you will ever need.

The latest RS6 from Audi only comes in an Avant body style, which is Audi speak for estate vehicle. So, unless you have a trained eye, it looks somewhat similar to the regular 1.8-liter A6 Avant.

However, look a bit more closely and you will see signs that this isn’t an ordinary Audi. At the front, there is the signature Audi RS honeycomb front grille and the front bumper is more angular and has large air inlets. Down the sides, you will notice the fenders are massively flared to accommodate the huge 21-inch wheels. In case you are wondering, the RS6 Avant is running ultra-wide 275 section tires throughout. Behind, the rear diffuser and humongous exhausts hint at the performance the car is capable of.

Xiaomi Mi 11 - The Affordable Flagship

The Xiaomi Mi 11 has all the core features of what Xiaomi wants to offer in a 2021 flagship, without some of its over-the-top features from the Mi 11 Ultra. For instance, Mi 11 doesn’t have the secondary AMOLED display, multi-point direct ToF laser focusing, or IP-rated water resistance, all of which is available on the Mi 11 Ultra.

Apple 12.9-Inch iPad Pro (2021) - Ridiculously Powerful

M1 was Apple’s first custom processor, and never in my years of writing about notebooks have I seen a processor that’s so powerful and efficient. In my review, I said it rewrote the notebook rulebook. So what did Apple do next? Naturally, it took the M1 chip and put it in the iPad Pro.

Google I/O 2021

Google’s annual developer conference around everything the company does. While a lot of the technologies announced just fade into the background of what makes every Google service work, and therefore too boring for the everyman to read about, here are the top three that we’d love to see become reality.

No Rest For The Wicked

With not one, not two, but three Diablo games in the pipeline and well on their way to release, I don’t think I can stress this enough: it’s a fantastic time to be a fan of Blizzard’s beloved dungeon-crawler franchise. On our end, we’ve already thrown a few punches at both Immortal and D2R’s Technical Alpha sessions, and so far, we’re quite satisfied with what they’ve got on the menu.

Intake 2020 Audi S4 FIRST DRIVE

Cars like the Audi S4 have a complicated set of responsibilities. They have to be fast, high-tech, comfortable, well-built, efficient, safe, and satisfying to drive—not to mention good-looking. Personally, I prefer the looks of the old car, but that doesn’t mean the new car isn’t handsome enough to satisfy those who can afford the $50,895 starting price.

As We see it – Hi-fi Arcana I

Some Stereophile readers will surely remember—some may even have in their collections—Christian Marclay’s 1985 vinyl release Record Without a Cover, surely one of the oddest records ever, right up there with the dying-rabbit record and the seven-inch single that’s tinted yellow by the band’s actual urine.
