Awarded Editors Choice - "Although the attention-grabbing design is a big part of the package, these luxurious products offer a harmonious listening experience too, especially together. They sound relaxed, presenting instruments and voices with realistic textures, rather than edging them with 'hi-fi' super detailing."

"...the overall balance of strengths heard from the Amp-150 and CCD-1—their exceptional musicality and ability to draw listeners into the music played combined with an exceptional beauty of design and delightful operation—makes it hard for me to imagine anyone, excepting the most diehard lover from the romantic school of music reproduction, who wouldn't be delighted by what Gato has achieved."
