The report is good, but not as a review, because it is based on mediocre components from an analogue source, and that are not up to the preamp in question.
If the turntable were an old Nottingham, if the tonearm were a classic Origin Live, and the cartridge was any Soundsmith, the evaluation would go to the top of the clouds in high end sophistication.
