The Feedback for:
Concerto Plus MC2 Tubes Phono Stage Eq-Preampilier
Review by HiFi review.
The feedback from Taiwan forums ( Chinese ) :
Good Evening Nelson.
It gives me a great deal of pleasure to be able to tell you that
the Concerto Plus MC MK2 is undoubtedly the finest piece of
audio equipment I have ever purchased, and given that I own
and have owned a lot of supposedly high end equipment over
the past 40 years, that comment is, at least in my own eyes,
the greatest compliment I could pay you.
Even with only 20 -30 hours of operation, the sound stage is
huge, filling the wall against which my JBL L110's are located
and allowing me to easily position each musician who was
present when the recording was made.
The sound is smooth & clean but also lively, and there is so
much realism that my only concern is my listening room; it is
now far too small :-).
Based on the performance of the Concerto, I must now make
good my promise to you and look at replacing all my equipment
with Audio Experience products, & will do so once I have worked
out just what I need.
By the way, including JAN NOS tubes fitted with vibration-dampening
rings was a very nice touch, and most appreciated
I have already let you have a list of the equipment I am using now,
but will formalise this in my next email to give you a better idea of
what I need in the way of a preamp and a power amp(s).
Again Nelson, my thanks for a truly superb phono stage. Once I
get 150 hours up it should be singing like a songbird.
My sincere thanks,
November 02, 2007
