First, the Cavalli is very quiet and extremely transparent. In this respect, it reminds me of some of the finest amps I’ve heard in this class.
Second, the Cavalli offers terrific dynamic snap, making transients come alive, yet without etching, overshoot, or exaggeration. I take this to be an expression of the “Fire” part of the Liquid Fire’s name.
Third, and unlike some amps known for their see-through transparency, the Cavalli has an uncanny ability to convey the smoothness, richness, and warmth of well recorded music, yet without in any way blunting the edges of fast-rising transient sounds or smearing low-level transients. Consider this an expression of the “Liquid” part of the Liquid Fire’s name.
I’ll stop now, but with the hope that these snapshot impressions provide adequate impetus for you to give the Cavalli Audio Liquid Fire the careful audition it deserves.
