Perhaps the greatest compliment a piece of audio gear can get is a shiver down a spine—exactly what Calord experienced on his first listen to the new Steller Phono Preamplifier.
You’d think designers would get most excited when the magazines launch a great review, or when an official set of measurements shows off the kit’s prowess, or when industry-recognized pundits proclaim it a hit. And, designers do. But not like when a first time user gets shivers down their spine.
I cannot think of a greater compliment than to have a piece of gear reach deep into a person’s soul and connect them with their music.
What a truly magical moment.
