    WTB: One of those Amptastic chip amp jobbies

    Anyone got one they're thinking of selling? Having a major reshuffle after having to sell stuff off to pay for car repair and need something for the 2nd system that I'm having to nick an amp from.

    Cheers, James

    Bonza, you're a star Jerry - pm on its way. It'll give me a taste of the house sound before diving in.

    Hi Jerry,

    How would you describe the difference between the Muse and the Amptastic if I may ask?

    Hi Lia

    Well, to my ears the Amptastic has a purer, more sophisticated, more natural sound. The Muse is a little harsh and flat sounding in comparison, a little bit grainy. Both have the TA2020 chip transparency and good detail. The Amptastic seems better made as well, the volume control action is smoother, the volume knobs on the Muse amps I have had are a bit "sticky".

    From T-class audio, the UK reseller on e-bay: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mini-T-T-A...7c60bd6cb#shId
    Ordered it late last night and just received an email that it has been dispatched. Now on to speakers....
