Concerto 4 review ~ by Steve Hoffman
The legendary Steve Hoffman, master engineer who's worked for MCA, Dunhill and other labels, recently borrowed a pair of Concerto 4s to have fun with and write a review on. Steve has been in the music industry for over 40 years, and has worked with the recordings of Buddy Holly, Bill Hailey, and John Coltrane to name a few. Here's a few snippets from his review:
"Great sound! Lifelike, sensitive, punchy when needed, natural, dynamic, realistic, Chameleon-like (a good thing). Whatever I played on the system sounded like it was supposed to (I know how it should sound very well) but it had even more. It had that holographic 3-D sound that comes from a pure single-ended low powered directly-heated triode amplifier, being faithfully reproduced by a speaker designed to do just that."
"The soundstage was tremendous. I felt I could reach out and touch the performers. A speaker that works with my Audio Note Jinro, WAVAC EC300b and Woo Audio low powered amps. A dream come true. I am impressed and happy. If YOU have a low powered single-ended amp and have been stuck with "horny" sounding speakers, try the CONCERTO 4. You will be quite impressed as to what it can do. Trust Steve."
