Review: Finale Audio F-7591 Power Amplifier

Review: Finale Audio’s F-7591 Power Amplifier

by Steve Graham

I didn’t get to spend as much time with this amplifier as I’d have liked to.  I simultaneously had in-house the Spendor D7’s, the Shindo Aurièges and the Finale F-7591 you see here.  I was so entranced by the first two, that the poor Finale was somewhat neglected.  I know, me of all people, neglecting a tube amp!  In my defence, the kind person loaning this gear wanted a fairly quick turnaround of 2 weeks, 3 max. … Read the full article

Upcoming Review Update:

Finale Maestro-Six Full Function Preamplifier

By Steve Graham

This will be a departure from the norm for me.  The Finale Maestro-Six is a minimalist design, compared to my usual ranks of separate tubed stages.

Finale Audio is a small Canadian company that makes bespoke audio components, along with its sister company Triode Lab (WoS has reviewed pieces from both brands before).  A prospective owner may order one with his or her choice of volume potentiometers, selector switches, various other bits and pieces and even custom stainless steel knobs.… Read the full article

Well, many thanks to Frank Fazzalari; his audio meet was a resounding success! There was a great turnout of people, and everyone was buzzing about the excellent sounds and cool products on display.

By | February 21st, 2016|Categories: Wall of sound|Tags: , , , , , , |

A review by Jon Eben Field

When it came time to review Triode Lab’s 2A3M-II monoblocks, I had already had a pair of the prototypes for the 2A3M monoblocks in my possession. As such, I had a well-honed sense of what the 2A3 tube could do in the hands of Frank Ng, chief designer and owner of Triode Lab and Finale Audio. Needless to say, when I received the 2A3M-II monoblocks in a bright orange, I was salivating over the beauty of the exquisite paint job on the chassis, as well as the potential for added texture and refinement in the sound from the addition of a second 2A3 tube to the mix.… Read the full article
