Hello @whitecamaross, wonderful that you might try out the Rowland M625 S2. The original M625 was already a wonderful power amp that I had in my system for one year, before to upgrading to M725, and then my current M925 monos.M625 S2 is a relative...

Hmmm... Techno, I listen to music at acoustic concert levels -- that means non-amplified concerts, ranging from chamber, lieds, choral, and full orchestra.... In case you wondered, my ears are just fine. I have auditioned the MCIntosh suite at len...

Hi Richard, Since the reports that the Rowland Power Storage Unit based on ultracapacitors makes a huge difference on Corus -- And I have experienced its effect on the Rowland Aeris DAC, I am no longer surprised that some extremely good power cord...

Neutrality does not imply non-musicality. Neutrality is simply the characteristics to treat the entire audible region equally... Without emphasizing or dampening any particular region of the audible spectrum.... In this, neutrality and musicality ...
