Pros Really reinforces Nakamichi RE10 and Tannoy R2 combo for some music. R2's have everything except good bass. Plenty of power for that set-up and when in the mood, can make my living room sound like a club. Clean lines in front but see the cons.
Cons Controls on the back are awkward. I put a mirror behind it to see the knobs and switches. It's an ergonomic thing.
It needs adjustment to gain and cut off levels, depending on master volume level and music style.
Summary Pleased with sound quality but needs tweaking too often. My local store had a new one in stock for well less than published retail. I use CD, Apple/WMA lossless and FM music sources. Not a home theater guy.
Don't like constant need to adjust settings on back of device to suit master volume and style of music but can generally find a gain/cutoff frequency combo that works well. A remote or else front-mounted controls could really help and that's more important to me than its clean looks. That said, the knobs do give plenty of adjustment range.
This device will remain in my $2-3,000 component system until the commission on the next big contract comes along. For well less than the published price, it has certainly added its value in terms of my listening experience, especially from 5/6 string electric bass and rock drums, keyboards, some male vocals, upright bass and timpani drums.
Thanks for your submission!
