“In the many years of my hifi hobby journey (beginning in the early 1970s), many products have come and gone that disappointed or had unjustified prices. This one is quite different…From the first play, I was relishing the REDGUM experience, and that feeling of potency and musicality, and this is certainly not just another amplifier!”… Read More
Extracted with permission from Mono & Stereo’s review of the REDGUM Black RGi120ENR integrated amplifier. In the review, Matej Isak did an email interview with Ian Robinson, REDGUM’s founder and designer. RGi120ENR is very different sounding and performing integrated.

Non-critical listening is where you just want to ‘listen to the music’ and enjoy it for its own sake. You might even be walking around the room, chatting… Read More
Watching and listening to Barbra Streisand’s ‘Timeless’ concert from 31st December 1999, and ‘David Foster & Friends’. At home, playing out from a Mac Mini with VLC, through the REDGUM RGDAC8, to a REDGUM Black RGi120ENR driving a pair of Axis VBS and a pair of active Axis EBS. Very moving. We had the prototype… Read More
