Amplifier from a specific level of quality would have to sound more or less the same, has a certain logic. Instead however, this utopian “point of the vanishing difference” come closer, it seems with increasing effort to remove more of it.
- Musical Fidelity Primo
- Data sheet
Many decades of collected hearing test experience teach one thing above all: the HiFi devices are easier and that compromise, the diffuser their tonal characteristics, to commit them will seem less, and they are harder to pull off.
Also the musical fidelity amplifier specialists can real high end in the form of pure preamplifier Primo, who is built like his power mate in England and not, as the smaller musical instruments, in the far East. In the Primo Michaelson lives out his old penchant for tube pre-amp, and in clover: 14 double Triodes of the type ECC 81 into a Primo. That there were so many, has nothing to do with overindulgence, but rather that Michaelson on the one hand completely symmetrical builds the Primo, increased noise, on the other hand, current capability and lifespan of the tubes by pair-wise parallel. The Primo maintains the music without semiconductors, without over all feedback and complete in class A – a technical tour de force and thus in the spirit of similar uncompromising AMS power amplifier.
If the musical people their preamp in the PR-text a free, open quality with a huge, wide, write to deep image, which has exceptionally even content. Instead of wanting to push all key stimulus buttons at the same time, they advertise specifically with a property. Those who felt the author of this test as a particularly outstanding: breadth and depth of the space figure. Connected to the Audionet Pre1 G3, rising sense of space, of picture accuracy and plasticity by the Primo so easily within reach, that is really not long back and is must switch. You must have not read before also the musical-PR.
