IA 21

“The IA21 was one classy, sexy beast. I found its qualities of fit, finish, and built to be beyond reproach. There was just enough tube magic in the midrange to make me smile. I loved my time with the Mystère ia21. If you buy one, you will too. Of all the integrated amps I’ve reviewed in the last year — see www.stereophile.com/category/integrated-amp-reviewsthe Mystère ia21 is my favorite, the least expensive, and drew the least attention to itself, allowing me to focus on the music. It was just powerful enough to make me mostly forget about its dynamic limitations, and its tonal and spatial rendering of music was quite special—and even more special when you consider that it costs only $2995. The Mystère ia21 combines the fun of tube rolling, the convenience of auto-biasing, classic and distinctive styling, great build quality, and rich, engaging sound. A great value, highly recommended!” – Stereophile March 2011

Mystère CA21
Built like a tank, the CA21 is a fine example of the minimalist approach: a line preamp with an input selector (four line inputs) and a volume control, but no balance control. Stock tubes are Chinese 6SN7s. Substitution of NOS 7N7 or 7AF7 Loktals yields smoother textures and more palpable images. A giant killer in clarity, soundstage transparency, and detail resolution. A slightly closed-in treble range highlights the midrange. Tonally, the center of gravity is centered in the lower midrange, enabling a bigtone portrayal of cello and upright bass.

Welcome to the 2011 edition of The Absolute Sound’s Editors’ Choice Awards, our annual Recommended Products list. On the following pages we present the gear that our editors and writers have selected as most worthy of your consideration. These are the components we ourselves would buy—or recommend to friends and family. Each product category is divided into price ranges, with components listed in order of ascending cost (though a few items, like cables and accessories, are listed alphabetically for clarity’s sake). Each recommendation is also accompanied by a capsule review, the original reviewer’s name or initials, and the issue the review appeared in. Note that in a few cases a product may have been reviewed in one of our sister publications, Playback or AVguide.com, or the review may be pending publication, or the product may not have been formally reviewed but earns a recommendation based on one or more writer’s extensive experience with it.
Given that this is the high end, where components generally have long lifespans, some of our recommendations look back several years. At the same time, in an effort to be as selective and up-to-date as possible, we have dropped some components that appeared on last year’s list, usually because they have been discontinued but sometimes because fresh competition has caused us to reconsider the choice.
TAS founder Harry Pearson’s selections can be found in this issue’s HP’s Workshop.

The Hottest New Gear from CES


Eventually I made it across the hall to the Mystère room. The star attractions here were the pa21 and ca21. The ca21 ($2195) is a full-sizechassis line preamp featuring tube rectification, DC filament supplies, zero global feedback, a high-quality 24-step volume attenuator, an SRRP gain stage, and a modified White cathode-follower output stage for low output impedance. The pa21 ($2995) is the ca21’s matching amplifier, nominally a 55Wpc KT88-based power amp, although it may be easily switched to EL34 use. The adaptive autobias board allows one to run either tube at its optimal bias level. The front end was the wellknown PrimaLuna Eight CD player and cabling was by DH Labs. What I was absolutely not ready for was the magical coupling between the Mystère gear and the MartinLogan Summit X hybrid ESLs. Every once in a while you run into a match made in heaven— and this was definitely one of them. Fantastic midrange clarity and soundstage transparency to die for. Bass quality and integration were surprisingly good even under show conditions.


Mystère voor- en eindversterkers

Mystère voor- en eindversterkers: de kleinere, de Ca11/Pa11 combinatie en zijn grotere broer, de Ca21/Pa21. Nu is er dus ook Mystère versterking op nog hoger niveau, voor een zeer schappelijke prijs. Uiteraard hoort U binnenkort meer over deze schitterende apparaten. U kunt er op de Mystère site (zie merken) alvast meer over lezen.
