Cen.Grand separates

Grander Cen.Grand – This ambitious Chinese brand's portfolio just expanded with an analog preamp and matching 1'000-watt class AB monaural power amplifiers. A server/streamer based on a new 'synchronous' protocol previewed at this year's Guangzhou show is expected to ship by October. The separates are in production now to augment the initial DSD1'204 DACs and headphone amplifiers. EU buyers already have two sources for the brand – AudioNext in Germany, Willowtree Audio in the UK.
