Gunmetal glory from Raysonic
I’m not familiar with Raysonic, but their system sounded excellent: a large-scale presentation with good color and texture, elements of which may have been owing to the impressive-looking Raysonic Reference 26 mono tube amplifiers ($16,500/pair in Canadian funds). Each 180Wpc amp contains 12 Russian-made 7591AEH output tetrodes, configured for true balanced operation. (We were told that the loudspeakers, which bore the name Revolver
, aren’t commercially affiliated with Raysonic.)
Even more appealing to this EL34 enthusiastvisually, at leastwas Raysonic’s beautiful SP-300 integrated amp ($2600), on static display. I requested a review loaner, so perhaps I’ll soon have a better idea what this brand is all about.
