In 2017, just as it appeared on the market we put our hands ,eyes and Ears on the Italian new-comer into the audio world: Riviera Audio Laboratories. At that point we loved the look and we only knew the sound of company’s integrated AIC-10 amplifier, which sonic-wise put it spell over us already. But it took us few more months to research RAL‘s approach deeper and finally go for the brand representation in the UK.

It might be the last platform you might need or want to move, and that is not certainly due to its weight.

So when GigaWatt’s basic PC-2 EVO+ has been reviewed by Hifi Knights we had been all ears, knowing already what’s going on once the latest stock arrived.
This write up is following the regular review of the Pacific DAC we published here. But it doesn’t focus on DAC per se or comparing dac models available on hand. It clearly gets into the subject which interests us all most: the tube rolling.Once the leading test platform had been established Dawid clearly focused on tubes only to avoid any misconducts which switching between the different machines could course.
