Reviews

Egg-Shell Prestige 12WKT is a very nice and fully audiophile tube amplifier. Despite rather small output power, it’s a very versatile device, so finding right speakers for it is not a difficult task. I was successful with all models I tried – even those that theoretically shouldn’t work very well with this amp. The founders of the company put their musical passion in the first place, and it can be seen and heard. I can only hope their efforts will be appreciated by audiophiles all over the world.
