Review Gato DIA-250S integrated amplifier – DAC

We recently had the Gato AMP-150 on Alpha-Audio’s test bench. We were very impressed with this beautiful amplifier. From the same brand we now have the GATO DIA-250S; an integrated amplifier with DAC. We’re curious to see how it performs, are you?

Review Gato AMP150 integrated amplifier

At Alpha-Audio we prefer to think of ourselves as down-to-earth music lovers.

Guru Q10

Review Guru Q10 monitor loudspeaker

Guru… …that’s a pretty bold name for a brand. After all, a guru knows everything… is the best. A kind of … oracle. If a brand calls itself guru … then we can expect something, right?
