By | March 1st, 2019|Categories: Audio news, Dagogo|Tags: , , |

“The Bricasti M25 delivers a power-to-size advantage for the discerning listener.”

Shirley, MA: The M25 stereo amplifier finds a special place in the Bricasti family of amplifiers through its dual mono transformer design, essentially creating a hybrid of the single transformer Bricasti M15 stereo amplifier and its larger M28 mono-block brethren.

Like the entire line of Bricasti amplifiers, the M25’s fully differential balanced design delivers a fast, low distortion, open and harmonically accurate musical experience.
