Vinyle&Audio reviewed SOPRANO Mono blocks in their latest 2023 edition (more powerful), conclusion is dithyrambic. Other reviews said the same in recent years L'AudiodeFrance,6 Moons,ON-MAG,Audiophilefr .
I should point out that the official APURNA™ website is not yet active and will be again this fall 2023. As the products/models/specifications informations on the official APURNA™ website are no longer up to date, only the PHPAUDIO® website (distributor/seller) presents the brand new 2023 models and up to date pricing.
APURNA™/ABORA™ prioritized the development of the new versions of the APURNA™ electronics, ABORA™ amplifier and the new APURNA™ AVA speakers at the website refurbishment.
I will be introducing the APURNA™ AVA™ in the September blog, a brand new model.

PLAYBACK DESIGNS : USB X4 Module
The Alamo Californian brand has just released a module for reading files in USB connection.
