    Re: Audionet STERN & HEISENBERG

    Sorry - with regard to power amps, my comment was referring to CH, not Audionet.

    Re: Audionet STERN & HEISENBERG

    Thanks for the clarification. I conclude you really liked the Stern Heisenberg combo, even preferred it to CH Precision?

    Just asking, as that is a strong positive statement.

    nearly all hifi-magazine stated the heisenberg&stern to be theyr prefered ones over anything like the best of soloution, pass, dag, soloution, ch, goldmund etc.,......breuninger vom av-showrooms (lol) says 15%better than anything.

    if that all is just marketing who knows

    I think the comment was that heihei preferred the Stern/ Heisenberg to CH Precision, which I understand. Being very neutral, those can sound somewhat lean.

    Reviewers comments are also just one personal opinion. IMHO Breuninger is trying a bit too hard.

    Yes I prefer the Stern / Heisenberg to the CH L1/X1 M1.1 monos. It's not the neutrality that concerns me with the CH, it's a lack of dynamics compared to the Audionet. Even at lower volumes, the Audionet has a certain weight to it that means that any listening session is an event, whilst the CH can become background music. I would add that this dynamic element never becomes tiring, as the Audionet has no discernible grain, even when pushed hard on piano, high-pitched female vocals etc.

    I’ve also listened to both and I preferred the Stern/Heisenberg by a substantial margin.

    The Stern and Heidelberg have significantly more weight and density then their previous products. In short, they sound like an entirely different animal.
