Ampak - kaj je narobe:http://audiofederation.com/blog/archives/718
The smaller TAD speaker’s sound was filling the room quite well without overloading it. Lloyd was playing an LP with the famous track from the Burmester CD about the diamond mine trains in Africa. OK. We’ve all heard this track like a million times, right? The singer’s voice is a combination of showman, stylized story telling and real [spooky] anguish sometimes slips through.
Well, not with this system. There was hardly any micro-dynamics or inner-detail - hardly any note attack and decay at all. There was NO emotion to the voice. You could understand the words, but not much was accessible beyond that.
But there was like NONE in this system.
[I am ignoring the rack and amp stand.. even the most terrible micro-dynamic-absorbing but quite popular racks and amps stands could not do THIS much damage to the micro-dynamics… and they would do it in an uneven fashion across the freq spectrum, causing tonal anomalies but leaving micro-dynamics alone at various frequencies for us to hear, for the most part]
So we are down to the Technical Brain TBC Zero Pre-Amplifier and a Technical Brain amp… and the TAD speakers. One of these two brands is INcapable of rendering micro-dynamics, and I would say, incapable of rendering any fine detail at all.
Which one is it?
Don’t know for sure, but let’s look at both for a second. We heard Technical Brain electronics at CES in the big Magico room. This is inconclusive because that system had a lot of problems - and close listening [beyond gross evaluations] did not seem to be of interest given the limited time available at these shows.
We’ve heard TAD speakers at these shows many, many times. But I’ve just realized in the last few days that I’ve never heard them on anything but muscle amps - designed to produce loud impressive noises. Never with an amp designed to reproduce music in its entirety [see list below for possible candidates if we must stick with solid-state i.e. because the speakers need a lot of power].

Over the last few years I’ve reviewed some truly great solid-state amplifiers and preamplifiers from MBL, BAlabo, and Soulution and heard a goodly number of other top contenders from Spectral, Boulder, Krell, Burmester, Pass Labs, DartZeel, and (at this past CES) newbies Constellation and D’Agostino. Come now the TBP-Zero EX 350W monoblock power amplifier and TBC-Zero EX linestage preamplifier from award-winning Japanese designer Naoto Kurosawa, and, while I can’t (and don’t) say that these Technical Brain components leave their distinguished solid-state competition in the dust, they have certainly set new standards of transparency, neutrality, and resolution chez Valin. Indeed, when they’re driving the ultra-transparent, ultra-high-resolution Magico Q5 loudspeakers, I have yet to hear electronics that are more faithful to sources or more lifelike when those sources are top-notch.
