D’Agostino Teases Out A New Momentum Pre “HD”

D'Agostino Momentum Pre HD Amplifier

It wasn’t too long ago that we were all in a flurry about the new high end Relentless Monoblocks from famed amplifier designer Dan D’Agostino. Now stepping back into the Momentum line, a pre is on the way with a new “HD” designation.

Current owners of the Momentum Pre are allowed to upgrade, the new fancy thing does offer a main power transformer that is 33% larger than the current model along with better isolation – full breakdown after jump. It would also be hard not to mention the absolute beauty of the casework along all Dan’s work.… Read the full article

Vinnie Rossi L2 Signature Preamp and Monoblocks – RMAF 2018

We saw Vinnie Rossi’s L2 mono blocks poke their head out of the R&D shell at AXPONA this year, but the full dual mono rig with new matching L2 preamplifier was on display at RMAF. Paired once again with the well-loved Harbeth series of loudspeakers, the big 40.2 anniversary editions ($18k) were up to bat when I entered the room.

The new pre starts at $15k and along with the signature monos (also $15k/pair) is very much a statement piece from Vinnie, not just in price but in design as well.… Read the full article

Vinnie Rossi, New Statement Monos And Pre – AXPONA 2018

By | April 20th, 2018|Categories: Audiohead|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Vinnie Rossi has me all tied up with the idea that I have to get my hands on a pair of Harbeths. Why? Because every time I hear his near field presentation at an audio show, it sound like angels singing…if angels knew 80s and 90s hits well enough, that is. Vinnie keeps the track selection fresh, fun and high fidelity. He knows now when he sees me that a good throwback to either of the previously mentioned decades will put a smile on my face and his selection is ripe with options.… Read the full article
