"At the German brand TIDAL, builder of speakers and amplifiers, I have also been a lot of attention in my report of the Top Audio Video Milan (2011) in various show reports from the High End and rightly so because they know every time excellent listening demonstrations to take care of. This year they have come to Munich with the Agoria SE speakers, the model which is derived from their impressive man-Sunray / T1 system and as a world premiere, their new "Impulse Monobloc's". This year it sounded again wonderful and we can counting TIDAL again as one of the best sets of the show." (Audio review.nl)
"The demonstration of the ultra high end specialist TIDAL was one of my highlights of the show, the overall performance was maybe even "Best sound of show". Highend at this level one can almost never experience at a dealers place. What is also given to the fact that TIDAL is playing at the super territory in terms of the price. The overall price of this system probably was over 300.000,- €. But someone who is spending so much money also gets delivered a lot in this particular case.
With this system, played with analog source (there is a digital TIDAL source too) was really nothing to complain about: no matter Pop, Rock, Classic or Jazz, all was perfectly balanced. It started with an extremely clean and dry bass (cattle drums for e.g. sounded very powerful but not boomy), with almost explosive dynamics, the most subtle and extreme resolution and a stage that - other than often claimed - really IS realistic. A big soundstage does not happen simply by zooming instruments and voices all big up, but by giving them correct room informations and reproducing the event with clear separation. All this sounded just great and shows what one can do today." (Frank Armbruster, Culture Journalist, Germany)
