Air Tight atc-1 vs Shindo


Jan 17, 2023
Good morning everyone,
Does anyone know the Air Tight atc 1?
I would like to understand what kind of sound it has, in particular what differences there can be with a Shindo Mazeris bellevue.
I'm looking for an preamplifier with MM phono preamp that sounds like the Shindo.
I have compared the higher level Shindo Giscours in-built phono and pre, and Airtight separate phono and pre not to each other but to other components. Airtight is totally different sound, way more neutral and transparent than Shindo. Shindo more dense, colored. I prefer Airtight, others might prefer Shindo.
