HiFi+ (England) reviews pagode° MKII

Alan Sircom // Issue 185

The finite elemente tables never lost their way, even when they went away. It was the right platform for that effortless, more statesmanlike audio presentation, and the perfect foundation for truly top-end systems that didn’t just rely on impressive audio fireworks. In moving to the new Mk II version – whether using the standard or particularly when moving up to the carbon shelves/platforms – Pagode Master Reference has at once extracted more finesse and more excitement from the best in audio, without compromising the sound in the process, and proves a very tough challenger to beat,… especially as it comes with a very fine upgrade path too.
