I had a eye opening experience this weekend. One I will go into the other I don’t want to go down that rabbit hole I was able to do A/B comparisons between the new Andros II and the Andros 1.5. Jeff from Reference Analog also brought Audience FrontRow cables. We didn’t put the cables in until the very end of the day, but again let’s not go down that rabbit hole. When I was told that Zesto was upgrading the Andros 1.5 to the Andros II I was intrigued, but really didn’t think there would be much difference warranting an upgrade. Wow was I wrong! Jeff from Reference Analog, in Oklahoma, brought over the new Andros II so we could do a side by side comparison. It was not a subtle change. As soon as the music started the difference between the two was immediate. The sound stage was wider and cleaner, and the lower end had more punch and control. If you have heard the Andros before I know that statement is hard to believe. I have never heard an update to a component make this much of a difference. Jeff did not leave with the Andros II. Great Job Zesto!
