I have not heard the new amps in this system yet but those that have are all raving. The technology of the amp seems to be uniquely different than traditional amplifiers

Introducing the 500 series amplifiers

All new amplifier technology from MSB

Extensive research by MSB has revealed that amplifiers generally fall well short of the finest resolution available from MSB’s own...
Durand Tosca Tonearm...Initial Thoughts
  • 1,886

Thought I would share a few initial impressions of Joel Durand's latest and greatest effort: The Tosca. First a couple of caveats: Joel and I are personal friends and I served as one of Joel's "sounding boards" during development; so there is an implicit positive bias. That is balanced by my innate thriftiness (OK, I'm cheap) and reluctance to make changes in my system...

Soon after I reported to David whom I bought...

Last weekend I had a pleasure with several good and dear friends to hear at mine and at @wisnon place new reincarnation of LampizatOr Golden Atlantic Plus TRP where TRP stands for Tube Rollers Paradise. Where this name came from - actually the catch is that as output tubes this one uses pentode tubes working in triode mode ranging from El34, 6L6, KT88,90,120,150 and many...
