    Roksan's new Attessa amplifier

    Yes, Roksans have almost always exceeded published manufacturers power figures in tests, going back decades. Good practice.

    Stirling Broadcast BBC LS3/6 Ltd Edition Reference Loudspeakers

    I am currently using these with my Hegel amplifier, CCA, VdH cabling. https://photos.app.goo.gl/2vCJEydC55gUmgpQ7 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.
