Reviews

The Platinum 2 just makes records sound good.

CNET – October 31, 2015

 

The recurring themes in the Platinum’s sound are a lush, rich midrange, a rather musical presentation, an unfatiguing quality, all of which lead to more emotional involvement. Voice and upper strings have a very seductive quality. Saxophone is rich and reedy. You can almost feel the body of the lower stringed instruments resonate.
