Heard one of these a while ago (can't remember which one but it was a chunky nugget of a power amp). Thought it sounded good.

Anyone with experience of these, rather pro-audio, amps?

Cheers.

I've got a Hafler pre and power amp in the workshop used as a test rig. Power amp is bomb proof and still holds up well in sound compared tothe modern stuff.

Built dozens of them from kits back in the early 80's

Yeah. That's it.

The one I heard was a kit amp which my uncle had built. Very nice sound. Smooth and powerful. I reckon Hafler and Yamaha would synergise quite well...

actually Jezzer - the Technics pre/power I'm selling would be a perfect match for the Yamaha's

140W Class A power amp and a beautiful virtual battery (DC) preamp with top notch phonostage. mmmm

Bidding on that pair of Yammy's in Switzerland... We'll see how high that goes... If I don't win I might buy rsc's pair.

Jezzer,

Hope you got the PM I sent. IMO, you could do a lot worse than the Exposure 4 power amps, one of which I can dem. the Yams to you with, so you have some frame of reference.

VERY under-valued amplifier!

How does an Art Diavolo with Border Patrol MB power supply sound as a 300B SE sound?

Answer suiblime.

11W of pure heaven with grip and control and bottom end to die for but really needs spkrs of 90db + to give of its best.

May have one (all chrome including transformer end caps) for sale in due course.

Big and heavy and does not include the P S which is a seperate box in its own right that needs to be accoimodated.

Yeah Picard. Might end up with valves eventually.

The Hafler might be abit of a step down for me... Going from a £1,500 Naim pre-power plus £500 PSU to a £250 power-amp! (using a Harman Kardon integrated as a pre for now).

Actually, I have no idea what that Hafler's original RRP was...
