No doubt about it, SS knows
his stuff. This system is a wonderful all-rounder, one that definitely
floats our boat - fast, dynamic, gutsy and powerful, articulate bass. Not for the

without bass problems in the small room. A big system that delivers

super-explosive tracks from the album, just a normal traditional song.
Janis Ian's "Breaking Silence" track is definitely a show-stopper in this
The above is a description of the system with
just a budget phono cartridge. The recent introduction of the
Jan Allaerts MC1B phono cartridge makes
this system one of the best we have ever heard. The texture, the
layering, the timbre, etc. in this system are stunningly rendered, it gives
new meaning to the "artist is in the room" experience.
