"...the musical presentation was no less than a revelation to my ears. I simply have never experienced this outrageous level of audio transparency. I seldom give much of my music listening energy to imaging and soundstage, but the scale and continuity of the space projected by the TIDAL Audio Agoria loudspeakers was among the best I have ever experienced."

"I then went closer to inspect the exquisite finishes of the TIDAL Agoria Speakers, Preos preamplifier and Impulse power amplifier. The finishes were just out of this world, there is nothing perfect in this world of ours but, these finishes from TIDAL were super close to perfection. Doug then told me to touch and turn the volume control of the Preos preamplifier. I kid you not, my jaw did not drop but literally fell to the floor.... Of all my years in high-end audio, I have never had such “high” from turning a volume control knob. As the saying goes “Smooth As Butter” but this experience was “Smoother Than Butter” that was how that volume control of the preamplifier felt at my finger-tips. TIDAL Audio truly does take care of details and it makes great music. Wow!"

"The finish on these speakers is so far past "piano black", it makes most speakers look like they were doodled on by a kindergartener. I've honestly seen nothing like it, and after talking with a professional piano restoration expert, apparently not many folks have - especially not piano restoration experts. It's unbelievable. The build quality overall is appallingly good and the attention to detail is likewise fanatical - take, for a random example, the faceplate, which is 4mm thick and counter-sunk into the fascia to a depth of 3mm. Who does this kind of thing?"

“Heading into the TIDAL Audio room, I was faced with their gorgeous and large Agoria Loudspeakers. TIDAL also makes electronics — the Preos Preamplifier and Impulse Amplifier. Both were singing fabulously through the Agorias. I have never heard such specific imaging and accurate timbres from so large a box speaker. Trumpeter Wynton Marsalis’ growls coming from backstage left made a significant impression. Scarily good, with razor sharp dynamics. The Agoria is a magnificent loudspeaker and it’s worth your time to seek out a dealer. Those Germans! Isn’t it enough to make the world’s best cars and win the World Cup? 
At, 105K, the speakers chosen as Best Sound of Show should be good. And, they were. TIDAL Acoustics magnificent Agoria Loudspeakers have dynamics par excellence, real heft in the bass, and a wonderful soundstage, but it was the timbral accuracy and imaging that really wowed me. Sublime. The accompanying electronics, also from TIDAL drove the speakers easily. So bloody sexy."
