"It made me forget I was listening

“only” to the re-production 
of the live performance.
It simply felt real,
it felt true."

Hi Fi Knights - Marek Dyba  - 11/2016

"It's rare this dynamic readiness

in the harmonious border regions."
"...a tube amplifier, without tubes."
"The Shinai from then on perched
on a top place in our list."

AUDIO - Andreas GŁnther - 08/2016



"This is definitely
one of the best sounds
I’ve heard
in the reference system..."

HIFI PIG - Stuart Smith - 06/2016



"Shinai is one of the best solid state
integrated amplifire in the world...
...this capacityes are too rare..."


STACCATO - 06/2016


"Grandinote Celio is a sonically brilliant phonostage
that provides an incredibly airy
and magnificent reproduction of music"
"distinctly neutral, but with good dynamics
and compelling bass."
STEREOPLUSS - Roy Ervin Solstad - 04/2016


"Proemio had the power of precise images,
It was brighter, more transparent
with all the advantages
of good tube circuits, no hardness
velvety silver."
AUDIO - Andreas GŁnther - 03/2016


"Grandinote Celio is very different
and unique sounding phono preamplifier"
"sound tuning is lush, emotional
and involving factor,
extending across all the musical genres"
MONO&STEREO - Matej Isak - 01/2016


"Revolutionary"
For Grandinote Demone 140/140 points.
From 1978 to the present day,
only 3 amplifiers in the world
took the top score from AUDIO!
AUDIO - Johannes Maier - 07/2015


"...was so, so beautiful.
This system was a triumph.
I sure hope I encounter
Grandinote electronics
again in Munich."
STEREOPHILE - Jason Victor Serinus - 04/2015


"it is almost impossible to take off,
this amplifier connects you
simply and purely to music.
this feeling of addiction is quite rare
and we'll see why."
AUDIOPHILEFR - Lionel Schmitt - 03/2014



"I always find the Leonardos, to my ears,
to sound their very best when played
through Grandinote electronics."


STEREO TIMES - Clement Perry - 06/2013



"The best of solid state"




MUSIC EMOTION - Ruud Jonker - 06/2013



"a word occurred often to me: energy.
This sensation of energy never fades away
and gives to the whole reproduction
a dynamic sensation,
violent at times where the partition requires..."
AUDIO ACTIVITY - Domenico Pizzamiglio - 04/2013



"We did not hear never the fineness of the notes...
...The harmonic density
and dynamic distribution allow
for each partition, each note, each sound
to be interpreted in a credible manner..."
HAUTE FID…LIT… - Dominique Mafrand - 12/2012



"A disarming naturalness: great!
Who you were never present
the opportunity to listen to the SHINAI,
perhaps at a trade show,
you should definitely do it. "
Wilfried Lardenoit - 07/2012




"An amplifier with absolute quality level,
able to offer the best quality
that you can expect
from tube technology
and from solid state. "
NUKE - Alfredo Di Pietro - 12/2010




"Without any exaggeration this amplifier imposes itself
in a natural way and evidence of timbral precision,
an exceptional spacial coherence...
...these amplifiers own an unique character to go beyond
naturally the reproduction of all kind of music"
SP&I - Patrick Vercher - 2008




"It's like listen a sound by
McIntosh MC230 or a pair of MC30,
which had stolen the muscles,
from a not so small Krell."
FDS - Bebo Moroni - 12/2007


"I could not reasonably think

that a tube integrated had
the same authority of a transistor,
or that one transistor had
the same feeling of a tube.
Then I listened the Grandinote A Solo..."
FDS - Andio Morotti - 10/2006




"Refinement like small power tube amplifire"




FDS - Andrea Della Sala - 02/2006


"We seem to listen a modern tube amp,

one of those properly designed,
with tight bass, without difficulty
in driving strong speakers.
Has instead,
all the advantages of a solid state..."
FDS - Vittorio Vitti - 09/2005


"...the result of a careful search for

more natural, grace, sweetness
typical of valuable tube productions,
combined with the tight,
precision and dynamics
of the solid state of exception."
FDS - Andrea Della Sala - 09/2005




"Why have I been so impressed
by the sound of these amplifier?
It 's simple,
because they sound great tube amp,
without suffering the limits"
FDS - Bruno Fazzini - 01/2004
