Moscode Moves Up
George Kaye was showing not one, but two new products: the Moscode 402P!
Okay, that requires some explanation. The 402P is a refinement of the 200Wpc 401, "with better power regulation and some parts changes for a more refined sound," according to Kaye. That'll set you back $6500. But you can also buy the 402 with a Placette Audio remote controlled Vishay technology resistor ladder package, which not only delivers volume control, but a front panel display as well. That'll cost $7900. Both will be available in the Fall.
With a prototype 402P driving Joseph Audio RM2XLs ($4199/pair), the Moscode did seem to boast better top-end control having more tube Fender purr and less Acoustic crunch than the 401 HR I reviewed—but I was enthralled by its low-end punch and precision.
By George, and I think he's got it!
