From The Absolute Sounds (Ascona mk 1) review:
'All in all, the Ascona is among the highest-resolution source components I’ve yet heard, consistently digging out more details (including those marvelous locational cues) than most other ’tables and ’arms. That extraordinary resolution combined with the Ascona’s admirably neutral balance make for one of the most transparent-tosources analog front ends on the market.
The fact that it is beautifully engineered, impeccably well made, and priced some $50,000 less than the superb ’tables it so impressively competes with only makes it that much more of a good deal (and that much more recommendable).'
