Cavalli Audio Liquid Gold Reviews

Shini44

Arguably the best SS amp in the market.

Posted

Pros: Tube like sweet Mids, dynamic and fast like a thunder.

Cons: hard to find because of the limited production.

Cavali Audio Liquid Gold Review:          Disclaimer:   i burned in the LAu for 200 hours before i start any serious session. then had few 2-3 hours sessions for my brain to get used to the sound sig before i intend to review it. this review might see major changes on part 02. for this part i used TH900 alone to see the sound sig changes based on can and be able to spot it.
