Review by 麻倉怜士

Editors at Stereo Sound Magazine came to the conclusion that the Quest and Rei can go beyond hardware which simply playback music. But music instruments that have the ability to convey expressions of music.

Review by 山本浩司

Editors at Stereo Sound Magazine explore the possibility of having 2 sets of Rei monoblocks, comparing the sonic performance in dual mono, quad mono and bridged configurations. With the Quest and Rei in the setup, it was the Best 5 Mr Yamamoto has ever heard in his career.

"To conclude first, this sound was a

wonderful one that must be in the "best 5 sounds

I've heard in my life"

"The scale of the music is depicted

more magnificently... and it approaches the

folds of the heart."

Review by Matej 

Matej published his journey of "rediscovery music" with the all new Quest preamplifier, developing a dialogue between the realm of unadulterated music.

"The special and outstanding quality of the

Quest preamplifier stretched from track to track,

album to album."

"The Quest preamplifier does not misinterpret the original message but delivers a lucid and luminous vibrancy, always with its unique orthogonal quality."

Review by 山本浩司

Senior editor of Stereo Sound continues the investigation into the WestminsterLab music world after his first taste with the Quest.

"A limpid sound emerged, like an 8K video shot with an ultra-high resolution lens."

" There was none of the dullness that tends to be associated with large, high-power amplifiers..."

Senior editor of Stereo Sound investigates the ideology and details about the design of Quest, and how this "raising star" led him to the journey of music rediscovery.

"...no matter which of my favorite songs

I listened to. It was a great experience.

This is a new star of the preamplifier world."

" ...his vocals are so rich and expressive that it's as if a veil has been lifted, like an 8K image captured with an ultra-high resolution lens."
