• Reflection Audio Design

    making the best better

  • It was 20 years ago today . . .


    “Reflection Audio... debuted the two-box, balanced OM1 preamp...the execution of the OM1 appears first-rate and well thought out...the sound...was grain-free, dynamic, and fast.”

     Shannon Dickson, Stereophile Aug. 1995

    “I also felt at home in the Reflection Audio / Artemis Systems room. The new phono add-on for the Reflection OM1 line preamp produced spectacular orchestral sounds.”

    Kalman Rubinson, Stereophile May 1997.

    “A few other standouts: the Reflection Audio OM1 battery-powered preamp with built-in MC phono section ...offered the kind of high resolution, pinpoint imaging, and ultraclarity I prefer.”

    Michael Fremer, Stereophile Sept. 1997

    “...the most transparent and dynamic line stage I have heard, the formidable Reflection Audio OM-1.”

     Lars Fredell, Ultimate Audio Vol.3 No.4 Winter 2000
