I have been using both the Doge 8LP preamp and Doge 6 CD player for the past 3 years or so and they have never missed a beat. Neither have I , as the music they produce is so detailed and beautifully transparent with great rhythm and drive. I have stopped searching for more as I regularly hear fresh details on old recordings that can still bring a smile to my face, or a small tear to my eye. I am now content to simply listen to the music – it has taken quite a while to reach that point. If Mr. Liu and Marc set out to bring a little more beauty and happiness into the world, they have suceeded brilliantly.
I am delighted with the build quality and design, the superb sound, and the excellent service I have always had from Marc who supports overseas buyer extremely well (I have never had any faults or problems, but have always appreciated his patient and helpful advice).
I have been building and listening to hifi amps and equipment since the early seventies – it was probably true then that you could build better than commercial for far less money. I’m not so sure now as I doubt I could build anything near the quality of the Doge products for the price, and I certainly couldn’t produce the excellent cabinets and finish Doge offers.
Both products are excellent and well worth their relatively modest cost – they compete comfortably with far more expensive offerings and make an excellent base for an affordable high end system. Highly recommended on all counts.
