But, it’s eminently satisfying and always forgivingly musical. The Carissa is excitable and exciting though always in control, emotionally charged and expressively satisfying, subjectively the more powerful and driven of the two. Of course these CDs are also well served by the Carissa’s aforementioned bass prowess, so much so that I’ve enjoyed listening to this amplifier with hard-driving Rock more than any amplifier I’ve ever had here, my Herron Ms excepted – possibly. She may not be the most neutral amplifier in the Art Audio line but seems so deliberately voiced and articulated that I have to think that she was not intended to be. Like its namesake — one of the southern Cycladic islands of Greece — it is a ray of sunshine in audioland, offering top performance and fair value. There’s that bass authority and power I was talking about earlier.

Does the body tense up or relax? That 845gl sound reversal was deliberate. This wasn’t so much because the 845gl sound image density was much higher but because leading edges became 845gl sound more enveloped rather than remain spiky.

This deviation from linearity is minor in amplitude and no greater than found with highly regarded amplifiers of varying persuasions.

In my book, he’s one of the best there 845go was. The bluesy riffs from the acoustic guitar hung in the air like cigarette smoke in a bar. First the midrange was more natural with voices, it sounded more human than I’ve heard from this or any other headphone before.

It’s not even close. If it doesn’t, the discussion is over before it started.

Before listening further to the Definitions and getting caught up in prematurely type-casting the DeHavilland amp, I needed to switch to the Gallos as the kind of load this beast was really designed for.


The Ios manhandled the Gallos without a glimmer of stress or sweat. In 845gl sound room, sounx music just comes alive.

At the conclusion of the Audiopax 845gl sound 88 review, I promised to compare the two amps in today’s evaluation. Compared to my op-amp based AudioSector Patek SEs, 845gl sound density of images and compaction of musical molecules was more similar than not though the Ios went farther yet. The amp lacks digital connectivity, analog connectivity runs to four pairs of stereo RCA inputs and one direct input that bypasses the Egoista’s preamp stages.

In the overall landscape of tubes, the Sapphires would be considered slightly lean yet very fast and supremely detailed. If the CD 845gl sound gentle shadings, that’s what the Carissa delivers.

This is one seriously charismatic amplifier, with all the fine attributes that tubes have to offer. And did I mention the obvious yet?
