Egg-Shell by Encore 7 TANQ
We are proud to launch our top quality amplifier to date: The TanQ. First seen and presented to the public in 2015 during the Warsaw Audio Video Show, it did steal the limelight and remained memorable, due to both: A revolutionary look and unmissable playback quality. Since that we haven’t rushed it and we put as much time as was needed to make it a mature, well balanced machine capable of delivering sound which is involving and possessing, the sound which makes you sit and listen to the music with an undivided joy. In one word: The perfect amp for the honest and demanding music lover. We do believe that it all paid back and we moved forward very well in this department. More of that , in the meantime the final silhouette of the TanQ went through many makeovers to finally achieve the shape which is visually weightless and almost levitating, whilst at the same time remaining bomb proof and… built like a EGG-SHELL TanQ.
"Egg-Shell TanQ also did very well as far as qualities associated with valves go. Its snappy approach went hand in hand with subtle and delicate aroma beyond reach of most transistor affairs I know. Repertoire by Björk, Mari Boine and Sofia Pfister proved me rather bluntly how capable the Polish integrated was in portraying all listed ladies’ voices. It did so in fashion natural, intimate and euphonic enough to convince me over and over again they performed just for me. […]
Time spent with Egg-Shell TanQ under my roof I consider as thoroughly enjoyable since day one. This fine example of local small scale manufacturing proved me that Krzysztof and Andrzej Grabowscy not only developed something unique yet again, but have been constantly faithful to their own path established years ago, which is admirable."
