Music emerges from deep black background

“Even the most delicate pieces of classical music, the noise floor is always in the recording, with tape hiss from the master coming through, not the electronics. Personally, this is one of the true benefits of a great solidstate phonostage — the absence of noise.”
– Jeff Dorgay, TONEAudio
