no way that the Auditorium 23 Homage T1 SUT could ever be called
inexpensive, but it is the best SUT for low output, low impedance
moving coils I have ever heard... so let us at least say it’s a
good deal. One last word: If you use a low output, low impedance moving
coil, don’t dare listen to this thing if there is no way you can

Im Juni 2008 bekam
der »Hommage T1« den Image Hifi Award 2008 in der Kategorie
MC Step Up Transformers mit folgender Begründung:
MC-Übertrager Hommage T1 ist ein weiteres Meisterstück von
Auditorium 23. Nach dem “Fest für die Sinne“, dem
“Turbo-Treibsatz für den Tonabnehmer“ ist es kaum
vorstellbar, sich je wieder mit weniger zufriedenzugeben.“ Image Hifi Heft 3/2008, Seite 15.

I was, relaxing in the couch, been listening to good music all day
long. I was pretty happy with how the music was presented. The heart in
my system was my TD 124, newly restored by Classic Audio, DK, and
equipped with the A-mag platter and all other parts from Schopper. I
had also bought and eqipped it with the EMT 997 tonearm together with
Matching a system so that it gives you a
holistic presentation of the music (that is, music with a flow as it
sounds in real life without any HiFi booms and whistles) is certainly
not the easiest thing! Once you reach that point of having a system
that suits you well, changing even small parts of the setup can be
hazardous. I had gotten a parcel from the Swedish post a couple of days
earlier, the package contained the A23 Hommage step up transformer. It
was a good friend who was generous enough to lend it to me so that I
could try it out.
was already using the “standard“ A23 step up for SPU and
was quite happy with that, I was expecting no big drama changing to
another step up. I eventually plugged it in and put on a record and
walked towards another room since my wife was calling for my attention.
A couple of seconds into the intro I stopped and turned around towards
my Horninghybrid speakers, Bachs solo suites for Cello had gone through
a metamorphosis... the soundstage was huge, Maurice Gendrons cello was
all over my room and the instrument had a sense of air and volume that
I´ve never heard before... from the silky highs to the lowest
bass, everything just came natural out of my speakers, small nuances,
subtle changes in tempo suddenly occured.
Lots of equipment
have passed through my setup, this time I really wasn´t expecting
anything dramatical, merely a slight improvement from
“upgrading“. What a nice surprise it was!
