HQS9001 provide the sweetness of the best tube amps and we can feel
a total control of the speakers [...] they reveal an incredibly detailed 3D soundstage ; a dynamic contrast I had never
suspected. And the timbres, they are beautiful..."
my opinion, my friend owned the best sounding amps on earth: the
HQS3200. Now that I received the HQS7001D, I can say that it is even
better: more detailed, more precision, more punch. Along with the
PRS1.5, CM4 and SR8, the sound result is very very very high
definition... we were schocked"

am pleased. The sound is imperial, calm. Beyond sound quality, the
facts that the case is sealed and that passing to 230VAC is easy
(for when I'll be back in Europe), give me the feeling that I
purchased an apparatus for a lifetime, without any fuss or doubt
regarding my choice."

hours!" [...] "[then passing to the HQS9001] the
most spectacular is the low frequencies that go down to the basement with a

is clearer with a depth and a volume that make forget about the speakers."

"I’ve been using a Japanese brand (tube amp) called Wavac and cables were either Argento Audio (Denmark) or Crystal Cable (Netherland). The most notable difference was the liveliness of the music, the soundstage and details. Your amp is also quieter."

Mic A., world class studio owner and sound engineer in New York City, USA
the early 90's I visited Masterfonics Studios, Nashville, and compared your mono
amplifiers to their famed [Swiss] competitors. [The studio kept the Swiss ones
as back-up] That day I had the feeling that the [Swiss] better hold the monitors...
When my own recording studio was built, I took time to run a comparison again
and realized that your amplifiers actually did sound more natural and accurate
with a greater sound stage rendering. I have used your amplifiers since and have
placed the preamplifier in front, linked with your extraordinary modulation
cables. [...] You
definitely make the best electronics in the world [...]" (2007)

first auditionned and compared your amplifiers in the recording studio I used
to work in. When the time was right to create my own studio, there was no
question about the choice of power amplifiers. We understood each
other. The sound is so precise and soft, easy. With your monitoring,
I hear the space around the musicians, the low is ultra detailed,
this is great for mixing control. [...] The best power amplifiers
one can find!"
importer/dealer, Europe (2015):
was a pleasure to listen to your system. I had not previously auditioned any of
your products and although I was aware of your brand, I was not expecting
the level of sound quality you had at the Marriott.
I have used many well-known high end amplifiers (including: Boulder,
Dartzeel, Lamm, Ypsilon, Spectral, etc.) and the sensation I get is that
your amplification is one step ahead (or more!) than the rest.
Congratulations on your marvelous products"
