icOn 5

I’m truly impressed by the new icOn 5. It signifies a substantial leap ahead from the already outstanding and widely popular 4PRO models. The inclusion of the optional input buffer, coupled with the lower inductance autoformers (crafted by Dave Slagle), along with the finely adjustable volume control in increments of 0.5 dB and the tilt control, results in an astonishingly lifelike auditory experience.

The unit also boasts eight pairs of RCA sockets with customizable functionality for users and has remarkably precise volume adjustment capabilities (spanning 136 steps within an 83 dB range). I find it hard to imagine that I’ll manage to create a superior audio control unit in the times ahead—perhaps only a distinct one. More info…
