Product Description

"The SL1 Legend's line stage has the uncanny ability to delineate musical parts while at the same time conveying a powerful, resounding whole." "The music flowed with both naturalness and acute precision." "Bass had crunching heft when it was on the recording, while cymbals, triangles and brass overtones had what can best be described as residence in the soundfield -- the antithesis of wispiness that seems to be more decay than attack." The phono stage "was so pure and natural, so truly neutral, that it essentially mirrored the preamp's line stage, even with the extra tubes and transformer in the circuit." "I always felt great anticipation when returning to listen to the SL1 Legend, this becoming with time contentment, and then admiration."
