3. Consonance R1.3 Transformer Pre Amp.
A quite astonishing passive Passive
transformer pre amp with 6db of gain. This pre amp achieves what
other normal passive pre amps set out to achieve, but failed.
A perfect match with the Cyber range of mono blocks. Or any other high resolution amplifier.
Stunning resolution and soundstaging. Dead quiet so every tiny detail stands out in stark relief.
Spectacular with Balanced Amplifiers.
Conclusion of TNT Review. (See R1.3 page)
In closing, I am really pleased that the world of transformer volume attenuators came to my attention. Whether the ideal of a straight wire with(out) gain has been attained or not, the ability to understand and access the music, the musician's intent and the emotion behind it all is closer now than it was for me previously with the active preamp. The Consonance Ref1.3 comes across as a fine and competent audio component, bearing good looks and flexibility coupled to high performance and a reasonable price tag. With all of the other well-received products emerging from the Opera stable of gear, the Ref1.3 TVC adds glowingly to the successes of this manufacturer and I'm happy to recommend it for serious auditioning. Anyone looking for a simple but effective approach to completely quiet line stage designs would do well to include the Consonance Ref1.3 on their short list of contenders.
This is a carefully used trade in. Perfect, as new condition.
Since there are no electronics, it does not wear out, or need
warming up to get its maximum performance. My biggest selling
New $2,535 - This one $1,500
Postage East Coast $40. Western Australia/Northern Territory
4. Consonance Cyber 880A
Stereo Power amp.
An absolutely suberb Pure Class A - Triode amplifier using 4 of 2A3 tubes per channel. Renowned for their musicality. This one is fitted with Pure Music tubes,
the best available, costing about $100 per tube more than the standard EH 2A3. 30w/ch, but a big, powerful, musical sound.
Awesome wit Consonance R1.3 preamp or R50 is remote control is a must, but the performance of the R1.3 is superior.
New $4,080 - This one $2,900
Freight East Coast $80. Western Australia/Northern Territory
