    Roksan's new Attessa amplifier

    Stirling Broadcast BBC LS3/6 Ltd Edition Reference Loudspeakers

    I am currently using these with my Hegel amplifier, CCA, VdH cabling. Lovely precision, dynamics and coherence. Music 'pours' out of the speakers. Large sweet spot and without doubt the best high frequencies I have ever heard. Sound has none of the...

    Roksan's new Attessa amplifier

    I had a first look (but not listen, this will be next) at Roksan's new entry level amplifier. It looks better in hand than on pictures. I like the centralised volume/function control and inset ventilation grilles. The control knob has a nice, firm resistance and the haptic feedback is both...

    Does it matter if an amp has a linear power supply vs switching power supply? Starke AD4.320 vs NCore and ICEedge

    After having had two brands of Actives I've gone off Class D and Switching supplies. Back to linear non Class D and separates. Happy again.

    Why not review some Hegel amps?

    Fantastic sounding amplifier. I have one here after getting rid of my active (Class D) active systems. I also have an Audiolab 6000a and Arcam SA20. Both superb in their price categories, all built very well. I have rediscovered enjoying music after going back to separates non-class D.
