  • ExtraHarry Pearson said about the LS-1 : 
    "This is, just maybe, the most nearly flawless piece of audio equipment in our present-day reference systems. 
    It is a battery operated unit, free from any outside interference from the AC line; that ubiquitous hiss, sizzle, and high frequency white noise. The batteries recharge themselves after 60 hours of use. More than that, the Veloce is tube driven (four of them) and thus without the usual colorations and character of solid-state devices.
    Moreover, to these ears, it is devoid of the sonic signatures and colorations of all the other line stage devices I have ever tested. It is, essentially, the least colored, or, read that as, the most transparent piece of electronic gear in our present-day chain of reference gear. The Veloce is indispensable for the evaluation of the components further down the audio line. 
    Unlike other battery operated electronics, the Veloce is capable of quite wide dynamics, and a frequency response that is equally capable of touching the bottom octaves (organ pedal points) and silky smooth at the utmost reaches of stratospheric highs.
