Robert Koda


Another partner of AE surpassing a decade long of relationship. Robert Koch is a perfectionist. He is never hurried. He clearly indulges in the art of amplification. His Takumi series is widely acclaimed around the world in spite of very few official reviews. Bespoke quality simply speaks for itself. His K10 and K15 preamps are widely sought because of its coherence and smoothness without compromising resolutions and transients. They are easily integrated with other brands of amplifier as well. Robert is also an inventor. The Takumi MC ONE phone stage utilises proprietary circuitry of RIAA curve invented by Robert to minimise distortion during the equalisation process. The introduction of Takumi K160 flagship mono amplifier is simply the best of the best in my career. You won't ask whether this is solid state or tube anymore because you are completely drowned in the sentimental domain of music. It always moves you whether it is a simple Japanese vocal like Miyuki or a full symphonic setup showcasing Stravinsky's Firebird. It delivers shock after shock, tears after tears, and laugher after laughter.
