“Stereoplay” Review December 2013, Germany

Some review quotes: English Translation

“This integrated amplifier is not only powerful, consistently precise, and definitely tonally extremely well balanced, it also delivers so much colour and fine differences, that one could get enthusiastic about it.
The massive power of the bass unexpectedly appears when needed. However, it is blindingly easy to attest the power pack even a certain delicateness and still unlimited dynamics. Actually, you cannot make it better. GORGEOUS!”
Assessment: “performance, outstanding, captivating sound and plenty of fine features, relieving the user from all tube care – exactly the way it should be. No doubt: a HIGHLIGHT !”
-Outstanding value for money-.
