I am interesting to buy TAD cr1
I have 2 Kondo Souga and i would like to try to biamp them
I spoke with mr. Frank,Tad ambassador,and told me is sure power is ok,he listen one time with Ongaku and the sound was fantastic.
I had also Ongaku but Souga seems same power
The big TAd R1 i dont like
Too much bass and midbass,and disappear the beauty of the mid
The CR1 has less low but mid is fantastic
other choice is stenheim,
I have to check first if Souga power is ok,and second if there is special price being not imported in Italy.
Tad i can have new at very very special price
I wish Stenheims were distributed more in the US. I think they only have a single dealer - they are efficient and beautifully made.
i would never pair TADs with Kondo fwiw
I've heard the Stenheim Alumine 3 combo with Nagra VPA and Audio consulting phono/pre. Was very impressed by them. They are in a small footprint and beautifully designed. I hope to be able to hear the Alumine 5 later this year as they are more realistic to be a good fit for my medium-sized listening space. Bonzo, what size room were the Alumine 5 playing in?
