Press Reviews

“Rhythmically, it was very tight, with an ability to get into the swing of the beat that I found very engaging…. Stereo placement was good and I was able to pinpoint a performer accurately on a quite wide and reasonably deep soundstage…. I found the sound very focussed and felt almost as though I was present at a private performance.”
