Shindo Vosne-Romanee preamplifier review, off the charts!

mcm_6317Art Dudley reviewed the Shindo Vosne Romanee in the October 2010 issue of Stereophile. The last paragraph sums it up nicely.

“Shindo Electronics have been, for me, nothing short of revelatory. That isn’t because I find them to be useful tools, and certainly not because they appeal to my otherwise thrifty nature as a consumer-Not Hardly, as we say in upstate New York-but because they simply delight me. Without meaning to condescend: When you’ve had enough of spending thousands of dollars on the kind of sound that the gurus say you ought to like, and you’re ready to please yourself by spending your money on gear that you stand a chance of loving and keeping and handing down to your descendants, you can do no better than this brand. These are the Western Electric Model 93s, the Leak Stereo 20s, the Marantz Model Sevens of the future. Obviously. For the here and now, the Shindo Vosne-Romanee is simply the most musically insightful, emotionally captivating, intoxicatingly beautiful, and thoroughly pleasant-to-use preamplifier I’ve had in my home. It isn’t just expensive, it’s valuable. I’ll be a sorry sack of sadness when it has to go back.”
