What Hi-Fi? Sound & Vision magazine reviewed our X6 Block as part of a group test in their September 2015 issue. And it's fair to say that they really liked it!
They quickly found that the X6 Block was adept whatever source material they played, finding that it makes for "a more revealing and seamlessly integrated listen". They found that the enhanced performance was "tangible, with impeccable timing and smooth integration, allied to an expansive soundstage and rigorous stereo focus."
Summing up, they couldn't find anything to say against it, concluding "By allowing your electronics to give their best, this mains block is worth every penny".

Paul Rigby reviews the X6 Block on his website www.theaudiophileman.com.
The review compares the X6 first with a standard high street extension and then with a competitors offering.
"Turning from a basic, bog standard, High St. power block ... playing Dexter Gordon's I Was Doing All Right and plugging in the X6, the soundstage sprang to life with a layered complexity that immediately forced a smile" he says. And the improvements continued, especially in the musicality of the performance. Listening to Gordon's sax with the X6 brought more emotion to the music and "was a lot smoother" than before. The double bass, which had been "largely absent from the basic power block" now provided the "rhythmic foundation" for the track. In fact, he observes, "You could hear the nuance of the plucked strings for the first time"!
The results were just as impressive when moving over to Rock, with a recording of The Who's My Wife: "The lead vocal was also now much more interesting with the double tracked effects providing intriguing layering and depth to the performance"
Moving onto a harder test for the X6, Paul compares its performance with a competitors' extension block and the results were clear: "X6 provided a more secure presentation, giving the sax the trumpet a better rhythmic base to work from. Meanwhile, the X6’s upper midrange was more focused and smoother." In conclusion, Paul awards the X6 a "Groovy" award.
