However, Dan D Augostino still has the final say when it came to amplifier designs. Look at the bling factor of Breguet watch inspired meter dial!

This full Dan D’Augostino system, comprising of Momentum pre amp, mono blocks driving a pair of Sonus Faber speakers. Source id analog in the form of an EAT turn table. This system combo is truly high end, with sweet highs, full bodied, honeyed mid range and authoritative bass power. It’s the first time I am actually smitten by the Sonus Faber speakers, or is it the magic of Dan D’Agostino? My Day 2 “Best Sound of Show!”
