Red Wine Audio launch Renaissance Editions

Red Wine Audio Renaissance Editions

I’ve often thought that Red Wine Audio components look particularly outstanding when travelling in pairs. Earlier this year I enjoyed the Signature 15 partnered with the Ginevra phono stage. The two together cut quite the aesthetic (and sonic) stride.

Head RWA Chef Vinnie Rossi has now upped the ante with Renaissance Editions of (nearly) his entire range: new looks, internal tweaks and more optional extras.

Red Wine Audio Signature 16 Renaissance Edition

For example, the Signature 15 has been bumped to Signature 16 status with a stunning new face- and side-plates (available in three wood finishes), ‘better sound’ and an un-screwable top panel (for easier tube-rolling). It looks like the RWA remote control has also seen a refresh.  The RRP has been nudged to US$1995. An optional headphone output option is now available ($TBA). Battery-powered hi-fi never looked so classy.

Red Wine Audio Bellina DAC Renaissance Edition

The Bellina (Pro) DAC has also enjoyed a similar overhaul: new digital input board design as well as name concatenation. US$1995. I can’t wait to get my hands on one of these babies. A DAR review is pencilled in for Q2 2013.

  1. not terribly happy with the cosmetic price increase. Lost a bit of it’s charm :/ perhaps they could have an option for those of us who don’t care for bling?

    • “Nobody ever went broke underestimating the taste of the American public.” I like them a lot but obviously they won’t be to everyone’s tastes. When I posted the first pics on Facebook the response to the new RWA product look was incredibly positive.
