Never one to rest on his laurels, Ken Shindo is always striving to develop new and unique designs (which end up in production for years).
Take the Shindo Cortese, for example. It has been produced for over a decade and has remained one of his most popular and loved stereo chassis single ended amplifiers, which provides 10wpc.
Like the Haut Brion, it has recently undergone a few twists in it’s design to bring out even more of the qualities Shindo enjoys in the F2a tube (I suppose this will sprinkle a touch of sand in the gears of the part-time, garage based copy-cat DIY ‘companies’ and forum armchair experts out there, trying to keep up.. but I digress…)
Current owners – no reason for audiophile nervosa to set in.. Just like the Haut-Brion, evolutionary design changes engender the previous model especially coveted for those who enjoy them.
Cortese, always on display at pitch perfect!
