You might not be familiar with the name Norma, but as soon as we heard it in our Demo room, we had to have it. We first came across the brand at the 2019 Hifi Show in Bristol and immediately wanted to have a longer listen. The Amplifiers have tremendous grip and control over the bass, as well as an open sweet soundstage. If you are in the market for a new amplifier then Norma should be added to your audition list. We think you will be blown away by the performance.
The NORMA Revo IPA 70 integrated amplifier comes as a result of a challenge. The challenge to offer a product with an advanced design, combined with top-notch build quality and sonic results to match, whilst maintaining an affordable price.
Thanks to the experience gained over many years in the production and manufacturing processes and first-class engineering, the challenge was successful. The Revo IPA 70 is a creation of passion and love of music which is inherent in Italy.
Apart from the important and numerous technical aspects, the mission of the Revo IPA 70 was to offer a level of refinement and listening pleasure unknown to this segment of the market – until now. Transparency, timbre neutrality, speed, great dynamics, ability of reproducing even the tiniest nuances of the musical signal, both at high and low volumes, great driving versatility even with demanding loudspeakers. These characteristics express a lot more than its deliberately compact dimensions than would lead you to think.
The design of the Revo IPA 70 is the result of Italian experience in this field and has been created through a synthesis of technology and aesthetics. Together they provide an amplifier which will delight in its capabilities and musicality.
