    I will finally have the opportunity to hear the Progression amps at Paragon's "Night of Great Independents" event this evening. Tonights event will highlight D'Agostino's Progression amps, Wilson Audio Yvette speakers, dCs Vivaldi stack and Transparent cables. I assume the Rossini player will be set up in another room with other Wilson speakers and possibly the Momentum integrated player.

    This is the 3rd of Paragon's Fall Listening events. Two more events are upcoming.

    I was wrong, the Rossini was in the main room with the Yvette's and the Progression amps. The Rossini functioned as the pre-amp for the set-up. This room was hosted by Bill Pugh from Wilson Audio and Mike Cozza Director of Engineering at D'Agostino.

    The Progression amps are much larger than Momentum's. This allows for better cooling, easier assembly and for the owner a bit more space around the terminals for connecting speakers cables to insure the positive and negative do not come in contact.

    The sound from the system was very good. I think I would have preferred a pre-amp in the set-up but the forthcoming Progression matching unit is not yet ready.

    The second room was hosted by John Quick from dCs and Josh Clark from Transparent. They were showing new dCs Network Bridge connected to a Debussy DAC driving a D'Agosntino Master Classic Stereo amp into the Wilson Sasha 2's. Besides show the capability of the Bridge and DAC they compared a stock power cord with a mid level Transparent unit.

    I'm very suprised that this amps aren't being to much popular.
    On the paper they have all that anybody can desire.

    Well, they're really popular over here
    Perhaps because they only started shipping a few months ago, so no reviews are out yet, etc. But they are indeed incredible amps.


    cheers,

    I just ordered a pair today. No way could I afford the new M400 Momentum monoblocks in black. It was either these or the Audio Research Ref 250SE which I have on loan. My Theta prometheus amps are being sold! The ARC are fantastic sounding amps, but replacing the tubes was an issue for me. I am really looking forward to receiving the Progression monoblocks.

    Big congrats...that should be a really fun acquisition. Very, very nice system. Big fan of the components of yours i have heard (ARC, TA, Maxx) and big fan of HRS generally.
