Opera Audio (Consonance)
Below is a brief description of Opera Audio by Robert Harley, Editor of The Absolute Sound in 2008 (from Opera Audio website):
Opera Audio was founded in 1994 by Eric LIU, an optical-mechanical engineer whose real passion was for music (particularly European opera) and audio. His story is the classic "kitchen-table" start-up; he made a tubed amplifier for his own use, was asked to make another for sale, and decided to go into business.
Significantly, Opera was the first turntable manufacturer in China and has demonstrated with analog at every show since the company's founding. Even with more than 100 products in the line (including technical and cosmetic variations of products), Mr. Liu still creates all the designs himself. The product range includes both solid-state and tubed integrated amplifiers, preamps, power amps, CD players, and turntables. Opera even makes its own tone arms…
…Everything about Opera Audio was impressive, from the fundamental design ethic to the build-quality to the sound.
