Technical Brain Named One of “Ten Most Significant Amplifiers of All Time”

Jonathan Valin of “The Absolute Sound” declares Technical Brain TBP-ZERO Monoblock Amplifiers to be one of “The Ten Most Significant Amplifiers of All Time.” April 1st, 2011 — by Jonathan Valin of the The Absolute Sound

“… this 350W Japanese monoblock from designer Naoto Kurosawa is a poster-child for the New Age in high-resolution, low-distortion solid-state amplification that, for some of us, has wiped away any lingering prejudices we’ve had toward the transistor. Reviewed in this issue, the TBP-Zeros—which forgo the use of those banes of transitor amps, the emitter resistor—are simply the highest resolution, highest transparency-to-sources audio components I’ve yet auditioned, tube or solid-state. Though not all listeners will welcome this level of neutrality—which, while never punishingly analytical, does not do poor recordings the favors that more euphoniously colored tube and solid-state amps do—to me Technical Brain sets a new standard in high-fidelity reproduction…”
