REVIEW OF PA-1175 MKII BY SRAJAN EBAEN

“Italian Music Experience. That’s Gold Note’s new tag line; quite different from their earlier Renaissance of Technology. How it shifts emphasis from tech to emotions is obvious. But what about the qualifier? If there’s an Italian music experience, there must be Germanic and Finnish takes; one for each country in fact. That’s a radically different notion than the immutable absolute sound. From classical orchestras we know how culture shapes tone and phrasing. Symphonic forces from different countries champion clearly different aural aesthetics. But it actually begins with a country’s language. Its sound and cadence provide hints. An opera sung in German, French or Italian changes colours. What do we imagine an Italian music experience to be? On second thought, it seems best to leave this an open-ended question. Now each reader is free to inquire into that for themselves.”
