“The big X1… is something else”
• What will please you from the first moment is the sound.
• The X2 is quiet and provides a solid base for both the record and the tonearm / cartridge system. It accurately reads the groove and “brings out” a very attractive stereo image, with good width and many details, which is clearly defined, stable and with good depth.
• The sense of stability that the X2 has, wins you over.
• What I heard was a combination of good range and very good low control.
• It sounds fast, rich and controlled, which gives a sense of flow to the rhythm and creates a very pleasant soundstage.
• In the mids, it has good resolution, bright and relaxed presence with very good detail retrieval. Soloists, choirs, large groups of strings and wind instruments are effortlessly reproduced, of course, with a strong presence.
• there was a good sense of extention, and the sound was pleasantly bright and relaxing, with good transient speed (thus rendering good microdynamics) and a slightly darker character, which emphasized presence and ensured that the set never sounded harsh or hard.
The Legend Lives
• The X2 sparkled during the listening test
• The picking of the guitar chords sounded wonderfully flowing and floaty.
• The system reproduced the impulses powerfully, precisely, and quickly.
• The X2 lured the details of the string and wind instruments out of the groove wonderfully. That was a sovereign performance.
• Our test candidate X2 behaved proverbially, solid as a rock.
• The turntable-tonearm combination played well above its price range in every way.
“More detailed and expressive, with a more emotional presentation”
• The presentation is clear, light, detailed, and transparent, but at the same time large.
• There is a correct sense of rhythm. There is an attention to detail and intonation. You can hear an instrument‘s character, sound and recording well. You can focus on nuances.
• The sound is very detailed with volume and air. Sheer scale explodes confidently into the room – brightly, expressively, cheerfully.
• The bass turned out to be large but even slightly softened, enveloping, and textured.
• The mid-tones are rich with no sense of stiffness.
• Treble is differentiated, bright, but not harsh or fatiguing.
• The general mood is sparkling, perky, joyful.
• Bass turned out to be surprisingly tight.
