Default Progression Integrated Amp

Happy brand owner and supporter, however, while the new Progression Integrated is feature rich, IMO it lacks in aesthetics.

I agree Ed, for as beautiful as the Momentum series is, Iím not a fan with how the Progression series looks. I think the amplifiers are OK but not a fan of the preamp and youíre right, that integrated is......

This might be the first piece in the Progression series that I don't find attractive at first glance. I withhold final judgement until I see it in person.

Yes, my first reaction was not positive, but maybe it looks better in person.

Yes, I do like the Progression amps and would have bought these but they were too big for how I have them set up.

Iím not crazy about the pre, but I do agree on final judgement seeing this one in person.

Maybe itís better in black for photos?

Beauty being in the eye of the beholder........... I find it to be the best looking piece from the current range of D'Agostino gear. Go figure.
