It's been a couple of years since we discontinued our so popular CS integrated amp.
A lot of people were disappointed that we no longer offered an entry level integrated.
We weren't entirely happy either. So here you are, the GDC is our new entry level
It looks plain. That should be no surprise. We have to keep the money inside where
it really counts. The whole point of entry level is to allow people to experience
the pleasures of hi end audio who ordinarily couldn't afford the cost of expensive,
more refined seperate components. At this price range including expensive cosmetic
treatment would defeat that purpose.
We believe we should spend most of the money where it affects the sound. Cosmetics
can be added to individual taste at an additional cost. Oh, you have heard this from
us before. It's pretty much what we said in the intro to the CS Integrated. The name
and appearance may have changed but the attitude hasn't.
It’s that big question again. The GDC carries a Blue Circle logo and that means it
has to sound good enough for us. It has our Blue Circle sound, or no sound, plus
the usual words and phases you have heard again and again. So we will leave that
for the reviewers and users to comment on.
