"I ordered YBA Signature preamp, 2 (mono) poweramps and CD-player one year ago. The sound is just perfect with Magnepan
speakers. I have owned a lot of extremely expensive equipment earlier, but nothing of it is able to match the YBA sound."
What we can already tell you in the first notes is that the result is fantastic!
On Patricia Barber's "Ode To Billie Joe", the voices are human and realistic, for our customers who frequent the concert halls or opera, it will be the shock assured to listen! We can tell you clearly that the finger snaps are amazingly detailed & defined!
For listening in its entirety, the ensemble offers the sense of rhythm, respect of the timbres (tones), the micro-informations are there.The cymbals are real and spin with a real subtlety!
Same sensation on the track of "You and Your Friend" by Dire Straits, the guitar offers a magical presence music. The voice of Mark Knoplfer is simply natural! Three-dimensional space is taking shape before us!
We really have the impression of listening to an Analog Master, which is relatively rare to find in digital reading (besides Yves Bernard André tells me on the phone that this sensation was detected by the engineers of a famous Swiss Mastering studio a few weeks ago).
Summary: Magnificent, how clear and honest in the transcription! A pure moment of emotion.
