"Soundstaging is a beautifully three-dimensional and solid. The dynamics are stunningly transient and fine dynamics are elegant and accurate - and with this performance, can claim to be one of the very best phonostages on the market"

I can’t say enough about the level of service you guys have devoted to me.  It has made this whole purchase ‘fluid’ and perfect.
My brand new HW-40 is sounding pretty incredible right now.  Even plugging in the Merrill turntable into the TITAN Pro makes me think I should have headed for a TITAN Pro before any other change in the system.  But hey…you only live once and the TITAN Pro is really doing it for me.   So what’s great aboout the TITAN Pro?  Soundstage -BIG, dynamic range -BIG, detail -BIG.  I have never heard anything like this.  It sounds way ahead of everything else I have ever owned or had in this system.  I actually can’t wait for your flagship product now… put one aside with my name in it !!!!

Thank you for your very good advice and assistance.  This is very good.
My Brinkmann Bardo is sounding wonderful and the TITAN Pro is a fantastic upgrade from the Aesthetic Rhea I had before.  It is quiet, dynamic and lifelike.  VERY VERY NICE and my wife loves the sound too.  I want to ask you about the Audio Technica ART1000 cartridge you also sell but right now the EMT JSD6 is great.

How to start?
Well having gone through the usual Naim, Cyrus, Lehmann, Graham Slee and Heed route with a vision to never buy a phono stage again I think (know) I am here now.  The whestTWO.2 is simply incredible.  The others all sound very average and some of them even boring.  The whestTWO.2 on the other hand is pulling information out of my LP12 that I SERIOUSLY have never heard before.  Ok.. it’s not the best LP12 in the world but is decent enough that now my vinyl setup sounds so dynamic, has a great presentation and wants me to play more and more.  I never experienced that with the others.  I also think that I might try another cartridge … I have a whole new perspective on vinyl playback now.   Thank you all.

ABOUT US
Formed in 2005, Whest Audio Ltd has been at the forefront of phonostage design for both the pro-audio and domestic high-end audio industries.

Our first product in the world of vinyl playback was the acclaimed 2-box PS.20/ MsU.20 which won awards worldwide and was compared to other phonostages costing 10x its price in the magazines.  Stereophile magazine and Michael Fremer (the audiophile guru) put us on the map with the PS.20/MsU.20.

We strive to push the boundaries of vinyl playback with new designs and topologies.  We don’t copy like the rest, we don’t guess like the rest and we certainly don’t think ‘in the box’ like the rest.  Our testimonial page does speak for itself which is where we find the truth lies.

Since 2005 we have been pushing the boundaries of phonostage and small signal design …….. and we’ve only just started.
