Aretai Contra 100S

The test setup

Contents

We mainly listened to the Aretai Contra 100S on the Bladelius ASK integrated amplifier. That is a particularly fine match. The characteristics, by the way, remained the same on Alpha Audio’s reference system. This is not surprising, given the signature of the Bladelius amplifier.
