Modwright Instruments KWH 225i integrated amplifier Review
March 8, 2022 § Leave a comment
Listening commenced with the KWH 225i hooked up to an iFi Pro iDSD DAC, using the tube output stage setting, and a pair of PMC twenty5.26i floorstanding loudspeakers, a pairing that proved to be highly engaging and entertaining. Wright says that “Sonically, I like black backgrounds, low noise and clean detailed sound, balanced with the right amount of tube body and weight.” And that is what I heard; this amplifier has excellent transparency to detail allied to bass that is fuller and juicier than found on an all transistor amplifier. Wright has clearly managed to combine these two technologies rather well because it was all I could do to press pause and drag my sorry arse off the listening seat and over to the keyboard.
