UPHORIK Hi-Fi World, UK July 2010
The Uphorik has received full marks in David Price’s review for Hi-FI. We’ve pulled out some quotes below but the full review is available in the August issue of the magazine.
If ever there was a phono stage for anoraks with nothing better to do than to endlessly twiddle around with their loading options, this is it.
This phono stage proved extremely focused on the job in hand.
The Linn positively bounced along wonderfully surefooted, the Uphorik pummelled out this classic track’s programmed snare drum patterns, despatched the flickering hi-hats with great dexterity and syncopated everything together with consummate skill.
Unerring accuracy; it has a brilliantly solid soundstage, with instruments located as if they’d been hewn from granite, standing as firm and proud as the Highlands themselves.
Linn served up a soundstage as wide as the glens and deep as the North Sea.
With the Uphorik going for the rhythmic jugular and squeezing all the song’s pathos right out at me through my loudspeakers.
the clever thing is not just that this phono stage can distill down all the good things from the song and deliver them straight to you, but that it does so with such finesse.
