Emotive Audio Epifania line stage

While fairly expensive at $17K, the Epifania thrilled us with its “pleasing tonality, unique looks and substantial build quality.” This valve preamp also excelled at ambience retrieval, making it an excellent tool for hearing deep into recordings. Since it’s produced in small quantities, you’ll probably be the only one on your block with one of these, but it may “be the centerpiece of your stereo for life!”
