It is not released yet.

I was attending local hifi show in Melbourne Australia and the amp was shown as prototype, power was on but no components inside.

The heatsink seems similar used in Relentless. From the back side, we can see DAC/Phono/Streamer function could be an option on this amp.

Not sure what zone 1 zone 2 for?

I like the looks of it better up close. One way or another, it’s a great solution for getting into the line without going for the separates. I bet it’ll sound great.

Has anyone had a chance to hear it, or has purchased one? I'm probably going to go see if my local guys have one in to demo, but the few reviews I've seen have been favorable. I'm particularly interested in impressions about the DAC and phono stage options.

I have one for a month, to drive my Sabrina X.
The progression Int replaced my gryphon diablo 300.
It has dead background, higher resolution, more emotional midrange and more extended high. However the bass does not realy “rock” for some kind of music. I need high volume enough to make it come alive.
It looks great anyway

Thanks, that's very helpful. I did go in to my local dealer, but unfortunately the Progression Integrated had an issue and is out for repair. They also recently became a MOON by SimAudio dealer, and I'm investigating the MOON 700i V2 (though they only have separates and the lower end integrateds). I'm going to be upgrading my digital source sometime in the future, and am thinking of either the dCS Bartok, MOON 780D V2, or the Linn Klimax DSM (with Katalyst architecture). If I go the Linn route I might also consider the Linn Klimax Twin amp. I did a quick listen to the Linn combo and was impressed enough that I'm going to borrow the Bartok, DSM and Twin for an in home demo with my Wilson Sasha 2's.

Hi Belancer,

What is Your opinion about its DAC module, is it worth a price tag and how it compares with Your mighty dCS Bartok in the case of lets say Tidal streaming function ?

Hi, mine does not have Dac module so can't compare it to the bartok.
I dont think a dac module come close to a dedicated dac, in term of SQ and software (controller app) convenience.
