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 integrated amp.

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.

The Sound...

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.
