THE BIRTH OF THE COOL - TAS FEB 2022

Jonathan Valin THE ABSOLUTE SOUND, FEB 2022 writes "Ive never heard anything quite like it. To put the cart before the horse (or maybe the horse in the cart), this is, quite simply, the most neutral and complete presentation Ive heard from any audio component. This is the absolute sound in the definition of those words that makes the best sense to me: the sound that was recorded in the studio or the concert venue."

"The unusually natural and lifelike, virtually uncolored reproduction of the tapes therein discussed (Chet Baker Sings, A Tribute to Ella Fitzgerald, and Joan Baez), the many new things that I learned about the singers, the instrumentalists, and the recording techniques, and the old things I re-learned about myself and about the way music has shaped my life are owed equally to the Metaxas & Sins Tourbillon T-RX, which is to tape recorders what the original Quads were once claimed to be to other loudspeakers—a clearer window on the music, a window through which you can not only look at the performers as they were when they were originally recorded,in the light of a day long past, but at the you who once was when you first heard the music that they made, in the noontime of your life."

"Im going to finish by saying something I probably shouldnt say (and have never said in TAS before), but if youve got the dough and the access to R2R tapes and you arent wedded to the idea of owning a full-sized machine like the SuperDeck, then dont even think about it: Just buy the T-RX. I did."
