“..In our test, we felt that “what the ART300 excels at is the ‘unforced delivery’.” This does not mean ‘relaxed’ but more effortlessly natural sounding. We also said that, “music is neither strained nor constrained in passing through the ART300 amps, and in listening to this wonderful amplifier group, you quickly realise just how rare that quality is in audio.” The ART300 Mono sets new standards in imaging properties, both in terms of soundstage size and solidity of image, but it also ‘times’ in an extremely natural manner. All of which make for a power amplifier that is mature in its approach and demands an equally mature outlook in its listeners. If you simply want audio fireworks, you might miss out on the music.
