CD22/I22 Hi Fi Choice, UK, December 2011

“..visually, these units just ooze class…the chassis are based on thick steel sheet – you could probably stand on these without leaving a mark…we’ve seldom heard energy and detail so well balanced in an affordable system…We were particularly aware of this neat balancing trick when listening to a recently bought CD of the Canadian piano virtuoso Marc-Andre Hamelin, playing some of his own compositions. He plays so many notes per second that it’s quite a tall order for a hi-fi system to reproduce them all clearly and we’ve heard one or two manage that, but lose the overall shape of the music. In this case however, we were able to hear with great precision, not only which notes were going down, but where the general progression was leading and what the piano itself sounded like.”
