Latest update :

 

Lavardin Technologies IS Reference integrated amplifier.

 

The system can be considered minimal, but this is one that is truly musically superb, and one we will choose over many other more expensive systems that can't keep pace.   Outstanding rendition of pace, timing, and rhythm in this system, guaranteed to keep toes tapping and heads bobbing.  Those used to live rock, lively jazz concerts, or even dance clubs will not be disappointed.  Thumbs up for this system, vibrant and full of life.

 

Transparency and separation are excellent, and that's with just normal non-audiophile CDs and LPs, gone is the veil over the sound.  Superb bass control and timbre, quickly starting and stopping when needed, with well-balanced muscle in relation to the whole band.  Andy's new dedicated minimally treated room definitely helps bring out the best in the system.  The introduction of the Lavardin Technologies IS Reference integrated amplifier has indisputably moved the system to new heights, it was very obvious from the first notes played in the first five seconds..

 

Andy himself sums it all up in one word on the next day, to quote : "Solid !"

 

And last but not the least, thanks to Andy for introducing more music to us, some seen in a photo below.  Excellent music choices, for those who are into pop or rock.

 

Some photos below can be clicked on to enlarge if desired.  Best viewed on LCD monitors.

Photos shot in slightly dim light.  Camera flash diffused and bounced to soften its light and simulate the

soft look in the room, while brightening up resulting images for a clearer view of the system components.
