JaguarAudioDesign.com is your authorized source for Bakoon products in North America. Winner of the Red Dot Design Award, the iF World Design Award, a 6Moons Product of the Year, and HiFiKnights Victor Award Winner!..we may have missed one or two but you get the point.
Check out the Positive Feedback review.
The Japanese have a meticulous drive for sonic perfection and the Korean manufacture is some of the finest quality in the world. The AMP-13R is Bakoon's follow up to the Legendary 12R (and 11R), which went out of production about 3 years ago. This unit features a 25-watt integrated amplifier, headphone amplifier and remote volume control.
SET Sound with Solid State Performance...6Moons described the Bakoon sound, "like listening inside a space capsule." Imagine late-night, low-volume listening sessions, with the most inner recesses of the music lit up...that's the Bakoon sound.
Upon its release, the Bakoon Amp-13 immediately received the Blue Moon Award from 6Moons and the Victor Award from HiFiKnights.
Srajan of 6Moons calls the Amp-13R "my favorite solid-state amp." Click the link for reviews and more info about the 13R.
6Moons has named the Bakoon Amp-13R...Product of the Year:
"This €6'000 miniature won two awards, one from us, one from regularly syndicating HifiKnights in Poland. At 25/50wpc into 8/4Ohm, it's no power broker. But if it's the most sophisticated solid-state sound you're after, for speakers and headphones alike including inefficiency bastards like HifiMan's Susvara, Bakoon's smallest and first amp with their novel Jet Satri circuit is the best I've heard all year; and the best amp we own. In signature Bakoon style, replacing the fixed output resistor on their patented gain stage with a relay-switched resistor ladder adjusts volume by remote. Two voltage and two current inputs make the AMP-13R into an integrated but by lacking a conventional preamp stage or lossy potentiometer, it's actually a multi-input amplifier with true variable gain. High voltage gain means no issues with even 82dB speakers in our rooms. As the most compact amp whilst combining multiple functions-speaker drive, remote input switching and volume, headfi-the Bakoon stuck to a far lower budget than challengers up to €36'000 which still couldn't dethrone it. That makes this stylish collaborative effort between engineers in California, South Korea and Japan our domestic Numero Uno, thus a natural for this special year's end mention."
"The AMP-13R challenges the perception that the bigger the amplifier, the better the sound. Designed for audiophiles who value minimalism, it is the smallest possible, high-end analog audio amplifier that is not just another “square box”. The floating illusion of the slim case is achieved by the hidden heatsink footers, and the tallest component, the power transformer, is seamlessly built into one of footers. The entire function is controlled by just a single red Urushi lacquered knob, and 10 LEDs ingeniously display all 50 steps of the volume, offering a hypnotic focal point for this unique and efficient design."
