Purchased new by me direct from the Australian distributor and comes with all inclusions – lovely aluminium remote control, box and instructions. The warranty is only granted to the original purchaser.
Simply put, this is a beautifully constructed integrated amplifier with a lovely neutral sound signature.
Bass is authoritative and defined with mids/highs beautifully articulated. I will miss this Italian amplifier as it does everything so well that I can’t really fault it.
Even the MC phono stage that I ordered with it comes up trumps when playing low output moving coils. My Hana LOMC was just gorgeous through this phono stage, with plenty of gain. Detailed and articulate is probably how I’d describe it. There is flexibility on the back panel to make adjustments to suit your cartridge.
Build quality is exceptional and evident wherever you look, the front fascia with the small buttons give a firm and positive click, the front aluminium fascia itself has a lovely finish and lastly, a great aluminium remote control.
The OLED display is programmable for inputs that allows up to eight characters for naming sources. (It can also be dimmed or turned off) Being Italian, it is a little frustrating to work out how to name inputs as the instruction manual is good rather than brilliant. Despite this small hurdle I still managed to name two inputs successfully.
It should be noted that input 1 is reserved for the phono stage and can’t be changed.
All in all this is a beautiful amplifier from this Italian company.
