Got some news about Corda Cantate - Page 3

post #31 of 121
yes, there were only 500 Aria made on the first run. It was the first amp that Jan Meier took the risk of outsourcing the design to Shangling for manufacturing. I guess the risk payed off and Aria was a success (I'am still loving mine, but counting the pennies towards the Opera) so its still produced.

I would also guess that the Aria will stay. There is still a big price gap on Meier's product line from Aria -> Opera. I'll guess that it will fall somewhere in the middle of these two.

Yes, they are well selected components. The amps are just assembled in China.

Not quite right. The amps in his more modernistic lineup are manufactured in China to Jans' specifications/design. I believe, additionally, he burns them in slightly to assure they're working properly before shipping.

Frankly, I have 2 amps from his more traditional German-made line-up and have decided I won't consider selling them in the forseeable future.......it may seem silly to some, but I value and know I can trust Made in Germany.

The whole Shanling thin is a mixed bag, I think. I do believe it helps Jan keep prices down. And the performance of his products that are made by Shanling is excellent. However, I also think his defective rate has gone up. My original Aria died. Jan replaced it no questions asked of course. And I know that some Opera owners have had problems.

But consider how much more the Opera offers than the Prehead did, and it's slightly less expensive. It's a trade-off.

You was under guaranty ??

I never pay attention to from where renowned Amp here came from, but as you talk about that, for that range of price (between Opera and Aria) what DAC/Amp there is who are made in EU or USA ??
post #45 of 121
Yes, I was under warranty. I bet Jan would have replaced it no matter what, though. His customer service is exemplary.

I also don't really care where stuff is made. It's a global economy.
