When the name Dan D’Agostino comes up, most audiophiles would associate it with high-end audio amplifiers. There aren’t many others who are on the same wavelength with Dan D’Agostino, who has had a career spanning over three decades. The audio manufacturer has built a certain level of success in the audiophile industry and it usually comes out with a statement piece to represent what the brand is all about. One such case would be the Sennheiser HE-1 Orpheus as well as the D’Agostino Relentless.

An over-the-top monoblock amplifier, the D’Agostino Relentless is the largest power amplifier ever. A manifestation of its passion for perfection, the D’Agostino Relentless is capable of bringing out the absolute best from any speaker system imaginable. Being a mono amp (delivering power to a single channel speaker), the D’Agostino Relentless is sold as a pair for a combined price of US$250,000 (approx. conversion RM1,049,125). But this does not make the D’Agostino Relentless a loud mono amp by any means; its true purpose is to reproduce contrasts in music perfectly every single time.

The mono amp is housed in a unique design made out of copper and solid aluminium. This allows it to withstand and eliminate heat even at the highest degree. Its seamless and unique design is down to its high-precision milling, which ensures the entire chassis fit together like two pieces of a puzzle with no visible fasteners. On the front sits a bright green power meter measured at 8-inches in diameter. The meter’s range and responsiveness will adjust itself accordingly, based on the level of the incoming signal. This makes it much easier to read no matter how loud or soft the music is.

Designed to play music at a perfect audio signal, the D’Agostino Relentless is capable of cancelling out any negative feedback, which renders distortion a thing of the past. Vibrations will also be non-existent due to a special holder that mechanically grounds each capacitor. 

Keeping in line with its tradition of creating perfect audio instruments, it’s safe to say that there’s no other power amplifier in the market that has been designed and built to perfection than the D’Agostino Relentless.
