Dan D'Agostino Master Audio Systems Momentum Preamplifier

  Dan D'Agostino Master Audio Systems showcased their Momentum preamplifier ($32,000) that offers multiple balanced XLR inputs and treble/bass adjustment. Their preamplifier uses complementary balanced circuit topology to ensure a very wide bandwidth and low noise. Weighing in at 75 lbs, the audio circuitry is fully discrete with no OpAmps or feedback. The specially-designed volume adjustment is done via a resistor ladder, which is governed by an optical controller. They keep the power supply noise away from the critical analog stage by using a completely separate box that houses a 300 VA power supply. There are six pairs of balanced input, two sets of balanced output plus RS232 for home automation integration.

 

Dan D'Agostino Master Audio Systems Phonostage

 

Dan D'Agostino Master Audio Systems Momentum Phonostage ($28,000) is designed for those who desire getting the very best from the collection of vinyl LPs. Their Phonostage uses two separate power supply components: a transformer that sits on the floor, and power rectification and regulation circuits built into the machined aluminum base on which the Phonostage sits. There are controls for resistive loading for the two moving-coil (MC) inputs, resistive/capacitive loading for the moving-magnet (MM) input, gain, and record EQ curve. Adjustments are made through front pushbuttons with LEDs. Each input offers XLR and RCA jacks to accommodate any type of turntable or tonearm.

Talk about flexibility, there are 10 different values for MC (5 Ohm to 47 kOhm), 16 different values for MM (15 to 392 kOhm) and 15 different values for input capacitance built into the

The preamplifier fed Dan D'Agostino Master Audio Systems' Momentum monoblock amplifiers ($55,000 per pair), that in turn drove the Wilson Audio Sasha 2 floorstanding loudspeakers. Their Momentum Phonostage ($28,000, seen above) was on static display and will handle nearly every type of vinyl album from the standard RIAA curve to many others. Everything about the Dan D'Agostino Master Audio Systems products exude quality, including the lovely Breguet-like power meter located within the center of the front panel of their preamplifier, amplifiers, integrated unit, and upcoming Stream unit.

Music being auditioned within the Dan D'Agostino Master Audio Systems' room sounded ever so effortless. It was simply 'there' in a very natural, and lifelike fashion. They have successfully mated magnificent sound with exquisite visual design. I love the Breguet hands styling of the central meter display. It is my honor to bestow Dan D'Agostino Master Audio Systems with an award for their ability to deliver state-of-the-art engineering both audibly and visually.
