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!

I was excited to see a new product from Moscode. George Kaye asked me to sit down and give it a listen, and I was, of course, happy to oblige. "Tell me if you think it sounds better than the original," said George.After listening, happily, to a couple of tracks, I had to admit that the new design did sound more refined. Like the older Moscode, this one seemed just as confident and relaxed, simply doing exactly what it's supposed to do, taking the listener for a ride with the music. But something was slightly different."Compared to how I remember the sound of the older model," I told George, "this one seems faster and lighter, without having lost any of the previous version's emotional pull.""That's exactly what I was trying to do," said George."Really?!" I exclaimed, suprised that I had guessed right.
