"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"

Helmut Rohrwild - Hifi and Records

My ‘special build’ Silver whestTWO.2 arrived yesterday and has been warming up in the system since then.  There are no words to explain the improvements to my vinyl setup.  This single unit has elevated the sound to a much higher level than I thought was possible.

Firstly – soundstaging it out of the speakers, far left and far right.  I have new instruments too 🙂   Night Fly by Donald Fagen has never ever ever sounded this way.  There are instruments and sounds popping out of this soundstage that I’ve never experienced before.
Secondly – Dynamic range and musicality.  100% increase.  Even my cat loves it.  She never really reacted that way with the Graham Slee combinaion.
Third and lastly – the build, sound, musicality and service – 150% increase on anyone else out there.

The best setup I have ever owned.  A Very happy Jacques

whestTWO.2 vs luxman E-250 vs Chord Huei vs Sutherland 20/20.  Turntable Rega RP8 with Ortofon Cadenza Black.  Well you know who won and that wasn’t a small increase in quality by the whestTWO.2  AMAZING phono stage guys.

First and foremost Sarah, I have to say thank you for your speedy communications throughout the past week.

OK I realise that this is your entry level unit and that my budget isn’t ‘up there’ with the BIG BOYS but the whestTWO.2 with my TechDAS Airforce V/ Jelco SA750/ Ortofon A95 is simply staggering.  As you know the whestTWO.2 is a ‘stop-gap’ until my finances change early next year but what I am currently hearing is far better than my friends EAR 834 and my dad’s Goldnote PH-10 and way better than I thought it would be.  Like many others, I have been listening to average phonostages over the years – Clearaudio, Graham Slee, Rega, PS Audio etc

What I wasn’t expecting was the size and solidity of the soundstage PLUS that incedible dynamic range.  All that along with the overall musical delivery makes me wonder what the larger models will give me.

I’m just so happy having found you through a fantastic review on Audiogon, well several amazing reviews actually.  OK, other companies get great reviews too but yours seem to be more about the things that make folks get into vinyl in the first place.

Thanks again Sarah.
