Zesto Audio Andros PS1 Vacuum Tube Phono Preamplifier
Labelled an “Instant Classic” by Paul Seydor of The Absolute Sound he covers his review by saying, “It’s one of the lovliest-sounding electronic components I’ve ever had the pleasure of reviewing”. Priced at $4000 Seydor also said that he would choose the PS1 over phono preamps he has heard that cost “tens of thousands of dollars”. When a vinyl record is made the volume of the bass is reduced and the treble is increased. Otherwise the bass would cut a groove too big for the stylus to read (or for the music to fit on the record). The phono stage takes the signal from your cartridge and adjusts it so that the bass and treble are restored to their original volume. This standard is the RIAA curve. Each PS1 is hand built. Each unit has been burned in for 50 hours prior to shipping. The noise level is remarkably low, -75dBu, so even the quietest of passages will be heard. Componentry is beyond compare which includes the award winning Isonode anti-vibration feet and gold plated connectors. The PS1 can accommodate both high and low moving coil cartridges. And it’s as lovely to look at as Seydor says it is to hear. Hear it for yourself.

Ayre QB9
Well it turns out I was wrong about USB DAC’s in general but at least I was right about the Ayre QB9. Most DAC’s just don’t work that well but the Ayre QB9 with its optical decoupler and asynchronous clocking system reduces jitters to miniscule levels. Then their MP digital filter reduces pre and post ringing to give a liquid quality to streamed music that was not previously available from your computer. This is a breakthrough product that will compete with CD players at twice its price.
