I’ve got to know Volker Heinze through his blog Truefi which is a true oasis for those fascinated by vintage audio equipment made in Britain. His expert knowledge in the realm of Tannoy speakers and especially the 15 inch Dual Concentric alnico versions from 50’s and 60’s is simply astonishing.
I had a chance to try a new amplifier over the weekend guys. It was a non-negative feedback solid state device in the price range slightly below 3k euro. I spotted it long time ago after reading a rather positive review in a french magazine. I contacted the brand owner and asked if I can have one for a week to check how it will perform against my current tube amplifier. Though it was twice as expensive as my current one I was quite sceptic about the transistor contender being able to outperform my tube Line Magnetic LM-211IA amp.
