Reviewers from hifinews have found the following***:
Top-end is nothing short of sublime, boasting a clarity, purity and precision that is eye-opening at times. Cymbals are crystal clear, without a trace of splash, while hi-hats, such as those on the title track from The Eagles' Long Run LP, sounded utterly glorious. Unerring knack of pulling the main performers forward of my loudspeakers.

Pros
  • Gorgeous top-end
