the best among the payable amps. Open very clear and direct sound, very extreme
precision, but always with the necessary share of warmth and sense for musical
structures. A solid crafted amp for a lifetime.

and tuned with dedicated passion. A precious pearl among its competitors.

much more transparency. You feel like sitting in the opera. This amp sets new standards.
