News & Review comments
The tone appears very neutral and with a range mediobassa
rather that shuns away from dry, hot tonal shades.
The detail remains high
over the entire range and the acoustic scene, being generally rebuilt in a credible way, helps create a sense of realism. I left intentionally for latest annotations the behavior works to high dynamics, to give further
highlighting to a performance that proved to be truly excellent.
At times the sound level
became almost excessive, but the sound quality
did not even hint to deteriorate and then simply not induced
in raise the volume. How to say that it seems really hard to find a speaker that could embarrass the Revo IPA-140.
I know that is fashionable in the magazines to write "I was surprised of the
component quality X ", but unfortunately I'm forced to use the same
expression regarding the Revo IPA-140.
Also from cold, the sound is balanced, detailed result for some characteristics,
very controlled bass. Lacked only a little speed in attacks. Twenty hours of running and this problem has resolved itself.
The Revo produces
a rich sound, highlighting the harmonic without emphasis and does not suffer
I heard several discs of violin and piano and in the register acute violin performance was always not only sweet but also alive, not thin/slender but fluid; ideal for tenors and sopranos both on CD and tape.
The scene with the kids in La Bohθme, for example, not suffering cries
terrifying but could transmit, thanks to a detailed and especially good focus on medium-low db sound level, the joy of the moment, the liveliness of free young singers.
Turning to the impressions of listening, after a short running-in a few hours, the high quality level appears very soon; It denotes a large
coherence and effectiveness in all valuation parameters
providing the listener with
exciting and pleasurable sensations.
Specifically when listening to changes Goldberg played in the recording
the 1981 by Glenn Gould, piano on all its nuances is amazing, the sound quality is exceptional sound without added colors - a high rise effortlessly superior spectrum precision frequency and soft
fluidity; each note is separated with surgical precision and sewn in a sound harmonious and well balanced & precisely
placed in the environment.
The speed was a big factor surprise in listening Live in Dresden by Jan
Garbarek; high consistency of tone in a
wide scene that envelops the listener, the
optimally positioned instruments in space;
the articulated and controlled, low range
dynamic media, high refined.
Further testing with a great classic jazz as a Kind Of Blue by Miles Davis I further surprises, the remastered cd Edition
on Columbia to 20 bit is precise and flows nicely into the reader. The detail
it is surprising, especially in instruments such as
drums and bass, the trumpet of Davis and sax
' Cannonball ' Adderley and John Coltrane have full-bodied and simultaneously retain a good dose of airiness; the Bill Evans' piano is concrete; This fluidity on engravings
is abundant, smoothly savouring all the best of this masterpiece.
Turning to the song Three of a perfect pair
the self-titled album by the band King Krimson in
remastered in HDCD. I have raised hair on my head (the few that I have
The presence of Tony Levin's bass was awesome and since I am a bassist
I was really impressed by the accuracy of timbre in slap; rock sound.
This is substantial and progressive; scrolling
traces the Norma IPA-140 gives a three-dimensionality
and richness of detail that enhances the character of each individual instrument!
