Pre amplification beyond descriptions. The TIDAL Presencio is nothing less then an ultimate phono- and high level pre amplifier for those who want to open the window between the source and the power amps wider then ever before, to find out what was recorded without any loss of detail or add of device colouration.
Three isolated true balanced phono inputs in an external deck do allow a free configuration for three different tonearms and cartridges. And do offer nothing less then bringing the reference standard of our worldwide praised Preos to a whole new level of performance. The Presencio is designed for nothing less to be compared with one: reality.
TIDAL IMPULSE The idea behind the construction of the TIDAL Impulse was to continue the way the formerly model TIDAL Impact started: to settle, once and for good, the discussion over tube versus solid state amplifiers. The Impulse results from the uncompromising implementation of our most basic requirement: pure amplification of the musical signal without adding any sonic colour or concealing even the smallest of details.
And so, we are at a loss trying to depict the amplifiers sound in usual terms, it is neutral vice versa natural, such as a glass of pure water. The Impulse is one of a very small and select group of amplifiers that do not feature any of the sonic attributes that can commonly be identified with either tube amps or solid state gear. A true state of the art stereo power amplifier.
