The signal from balanced sources is fed to the own manufactured input transformer with silver wire windings. Volume control is implemented on a relay and a set of custom-made tantalum resistors with low tolerances.
The adjustment step is 2 dB, the set level (remote control is also possible) is highlighted by red 7-segment indicators. In addition, an overload indication is provided separately by the channels.
A potential buyer can choose not only the type of output transistors, but also the finish of the case, which can be painted in any of the 12 branded colors of Ferrari. The quality of the lacquer coating is impeccable. The front panel is made of polished artificial stone.
For our system testing, we used an Avid Acutus Classic vinyl player with an expensive MC head, the signal from which was fed first to a step-up transformer, and then to S.A.Lab Lilt Phono
, a two-stage phono corrector. The [acoustic] load is the well-known Magico A3 acoustic systems connected by S.A.Lab cables with conductors consisting of 10,000 thinnest copper cores. «In general, the sound impresses with its openness and clarity, it seems to have been cleaned off throughout the entire spectrum.»
To try it out, I put a couple of tracks from the Leftfield disc  — a mixture of progressive house, hip-hop and synthpop with a powerful bass component. With insufficient damping of the diffusers, the bass seems bloated and blurred, like a cloud, which is what I was afraid of. In our case, everything turned out to be much more interesting — the low synthesized notes acquired such a clear structure that the enveloping atmosphere that almost always occurs when playing this disc disappeared. Therefore, there is no heaviness in the sound, and the tonal balance does not seem too dark. Percussion sounds are transmitted sharply, in full, with "meat". And this is despite the fact that Magico A3 has fourth-order separation filters, i.e. the load for an amplifier without general feedback is not at all simple.
