APURNA™ Prélude integrated stereo amplifier (exist in stereo amplifier only)

The latest comparative tests are eloquent, customers declare APURNA™ Prelude much better vs a famous German integrated amplifier (at more than €44k), against 2 Swiss mono blocks (at €35k) and another famous Swiss integrated amplifier (at €35k). Next comparative tests will be a Danish Integrated amp and large mono blocks... APURNA™ is the most dynamic, the best on tones and endowed with an exceptional bass. In terms of restitution of details and transients, he crushed the 3 brands that are renowned.

2 out of 3 demo are reserved, there is still 1 Prélude in gloss piano black, only 25hours, interesting price and under warranty.

TAIKO Switch Extreme sur PLAYBACK DESIGNS MPS-8 DAC Player et streamer Stream-X2

PLAYBACK STREAM-X2 integrated streamer offers a streaming or file playback quality that is comparable to the MPS-X independent Streamer (without optical link) for the owner of a PLAYBACK MPT-8 transport or the MPS-8 DAC Player. Combined with the TAIKO Switch extreme, the contribution of TAIKO is absolutely enormous in transparency, dynamic scales and fluidity. It is incomparable with standard switches, even high-end. The soundstage is finally wide and deep as only few extreme streamers allow (TAIKO SGM and WADAX). A streaming system that exceeds in musicality streamers that cost twice the price of the set (Stream-X2+Extreme Switch: 9630 euros). Our best result is obtained with decoupling with a single HARMONIX TU 1000 M Million Majesty foot.

Next test, the specific TAIKO Extreme Power Supply power for the SWITCH EXTREME (or TAIKO router) with grounding at PRANAWIRE VAULT 🚀.


ABORAâ„¢ A400S using APURNAâ„¢ disruptive technology
