The Mono & Stereo review appeared last year, but we are posting about it only now as we catch up on the backlog of to-do’s. It is well worth reading because in it Redgum founder and designer Ian Robinson expounds on the key aspects of his design philosophy:
- Dual-mono passive preamps;
- UltraFlex ‘drive anything’ power supply;
- Use of MOSFETs (I call them solid-state valves) in the power amps;
- Gigantic cast aluminium chassis that also functions as the amplifier’s heat sink.
Quote from Ian:
…if a REDGUM adds anything to the pleasure of listening, it is because we aim to add nothing!! An effective amplifier design should not leave its mark on the sound.
