Please allow me to introduce Mystère
In a word, Mystere engineering can best be described as 'minimalist', with some of the finest point-to-point wiring workmanship in the world. Mystère is a division of Durob Audio, producer of high-quality, high-end audio equipment for more than 30 years. Working with components across the spectrum day in and day out led us to adopt an unassailable philosophy: the only acceptable level of quality for the products we produce is the highest quality, regardless of price point.
Of all the integrated amps I've reviewed in the last year,
the Mystere ia21 is my favorite...
Erick Lichte in Stereophile
I can't think of another preamp under $8K that I'd rather live with.
It's that good.
Dick Olsher in The Absolute Sound
Outstanding winner !!! HIGHLY COMMENDED
Tim Jarman and Paul Miller in Hi-Fi News
This all-valve duo presents a sonic value that is brimming with detail, dynamic contrast, and body and soul... that's territory that's thread only by truly great valve designs
Edgar Kramer in Australian HiFi
The combination of that forward, exciting sound with a wonderfully open midrange is hard to beat
Alan Sircom in Hi-Fi Choice
An amplifier which sets an unsurpassed level of quality when compared to other components in its price range – and a lot higher. Honestly, it is scandalously low-priced and the winners are us, the buyers.

Heute möchten wir ein "Feedback" mit Ihnen teilen, das uns, als wir es dieser Tage per Mail erhielten, unmittelbar in unsere eigene Vergangenheit, in unsere Jugend versetzt hat - es ist eine Zeitreise:

High End Show Massan at Stockholm
Tuesday 26th February 2013
Some news of Musical Truth. Last weekend's exhibit at High End Show Massan in Stockholm was a real success and Mystère was described as "the most pleasant sound of the show".
A few words from Kristian Hayes:
"We were very proud to demonstrate the Mystère ia11 and ca11 with pa21 together with american DC10 Audio and Ukrainian Contrast speakers. Our showroom did not empty all day long and I can say ...
There has never been an introductory integrated amplifier with the fit, finish and sound of the Mystère IA11. There, we've said it. At first glance, this stunning amp simply takes your breath away; the proprietary finish resembles something like deep, rich, black glass, although even those words don't do it justice.
You've fallen in love with the dazzling appearance and captivating tube sound of Mystère's ia11 but you want a little bit more; more power, more dynamics, more flexibility. Starting with new circuitry that optimizes EL34s or KT88s, the ia21 delivers everything you could want and more.
The CA11 preamplifier picks up where the ia11 and ia21 left off. When paired with either the pa11 or pa21 power amp, it produces a sound so beguiling, so emotional, so utterly exquisite, you'll know there's a heaven.
Synergy. The whole greater than the sum of its parts. You know it as one plus one equals three. But you've never really heard it. Until now. Introducing the ca21, our flagship preamplifier. It's larger chassis is designed to match aesthetically with the pa21 stereo power amp. And sonically, the combination off the two is otherworldly.
The Mystère pa11 is the natural evolution of the critically acclaimed ia11 integrated amplifier. You get the same 40 watts of pure pentode operation and the rich, piano-gloss black finish but with a separate chassis for just the power stage, you can bet we've added a host of upgrades.
A final word on the importance of space: the additional room inside our full-sized chassis allowed us to fully rethink our already superlative designs. More space equals less restrictions and the result is truly remarkable, the pa21, our flagship power amplifier.
