PMC cor integrated amplifier

Integrated amplifiers
PMC cor

An ultra low noise floor is the key to cor’s success; this is what allows all the richness of detail through, as all the timing and spatial cues are enhanced when their quietest elements are exposed. Cor is a purist analogue amplifier for the digital age; without the super quiet recordings that digital allows its qualities would only be apparent to those with great turntables. It occurred to me rather late in the day that cor has many of the qualities of a first rate Class A amplifier; it has the delicacy of a single ended triode but a lower noise floor and more power. That a loudspeaker manufacturer has achieved this is even more remarkable and I hope it’s not the last piece of electronics from this innovative brand.
