Default Robert Koda Takumi K-10 musical impact

THE PREAMPLIFIER

Having now for some time one of the kind Robert Koda Takumi K-10 preamplifier inserted into my system and going through various systems changes there is no second guessing. This is the preamplifier and a product that works purely within the domains of musical pleasures.

Rarely products like this comes around and hits you both directly and subconsciously. I'm not a person of strict musical genre. Being introduced to various music from my young age I would rather see myself as the lover of music then being strictly pinned down to specific type of music. This often create an elitism and drove people away from high-end. Perhaps a broader look gives me an opportunity for easier insight into the whole broad language of music being used and the way it can impact through my listening to components and systems...

I had a look at a Robert Koda preamp a couple of weeks ago. It seems very well made although i did not get to hear it.

I'd love to be able to find a way to hear one of these K10 preamps...with this super high end gear the marketplace is small...the # of dealers carrying it is even smaller...
