"...you would be hard-pressed—regardless of budget—to find a preamplifier, passive or active, that delivers your music with less editorializing than the Tortuga Audio LDR3.V2."
"... the LDR6 produces a sound completely free of colouration, with a soundstage that was just consistently deeper and better resolved than with any other passive pre-amp I have ever used."
"The LDR1 .... represents the least colored preamp I have ever heard in my system. It also provided greater resolution than any other preamp in my experience."
"What an experience! Truly the best sound I've ever heard in my system. A layer of "mush" has disappeared and angry high S'es are now pleasant. More details and less harshness, especially in mid-upper-high range compared to the EC4.6. It is absolutely marvellous at low levels, the pot-meters in other preamps I've had were all out of balance in the channels at extreme low volumes, now it's all in perfect balance from 1 through 99 with a beautiful room experience, width and depth in the music."
The LDR is superior.... in rendering all those ranges in an even lower noise floor canvas, resulting in more organic sound overall, higher volume listening desire, and longer listening session...
"...truthful to the recording. I doubt things could get more than 5% better at any price - even $100,000...the most perfect preamp I could ever imagine."
