wondering why the name UNISON never comes up when single ended amps are mentioned. beautiful products from Italy. company also makes an excellent pre-amp and an intergrated amp that is off the planet, about 20g's i think. the mono blocks and pre amp are well worth listening to, seperate phono is only so so.
Art Audio makes superb-sounding, gorgeous products, very affordable by SE standards. KR tubes, super transformers. They've received more rave reviews than anything else in the past year. Most recent is the review of the 20 wpc Jota, $7500, on soundstage.com. It's very well written and articulate, and right on the mark! The 13 wpc Diavolo is $6000 for 13 BIG wpc. Yes, I've had it in my system, and will acquire one. These amps exist at a level way above the normal hubbub of blah-blah what's best. They are a new paradigm that you can live with for a long, long time. Note the Stereophile June 21 review, and soundstage.com, September, that found Silverline Sonata and Sonatina to be exquisite with SEs, including the Art. Please visit the website, artaudio.com.
