spannered it in my system, and all i can say is "WOW"!

Heaps more dynamic than the linn pre powers i used , cleaner and sooo much clearer, better bass, stunning midrange and clean, clean highs

:D:D

The first thing i noticed was no bass overhang whatsoever and total lack of sibilance, but sooo much more open than i have ever heard before.

soundstage deeper and far wider than anything i`ve ever wish to have hoped.

All in all, i am chuffed to bits.

If anyone is in doubt about changing from a tranny to a valve amp, I say just go for it, the difference is spectacular!!

Does nitin sahawny (sp) absolutely superb, roger waters and floyd sounds fab , jazz is great, and female vocal is superb.

even if i had paid the near 3 grand retail for this, i think its cheap for the sound quality on offer. For the measly £500 i paid, i feel as though all my xmas` have come at once for the next ten years!

I really am a happy bunny.

cheers.

35w per channel, but somehow sounds like 235w.

loads more dynamic than all previous tranny amps, inc the 2 lk280`s i used previously.

to put it bluntly, the TT makes all my previous amps sound "broken" if you know what i mean?

I`m just about to clean it as there are my fingerprints all over it, but its in mint condition and came with 8 matched new sovtec valves, all ready biased for use.

When I was after a new amp I was offered one of these for £900! so you have a very good deal, does it have 4 + 8 ohm taps? worth experimenting if it does.

You have also bought your way into a tweakers dream as there are plenty of valves out there to experiment with :Coool:. What are the small valves? ECC82's?

EEC83`s and another four EEC81`s inside.

Looks like £500 is where its at for you and Biccy. A lot of kit for your cash and hope you have a wonderful time with it.

Cheers

Transitors are good, but Valve is the best "easily available" amp method. ICE Power always sounds fantastic, but the first amps with it are only just coming through. 1000 watts in something the size of a CD case!!!

Try Acoustic -reality. com. They are in your area and quoted my friend £56000 without installation costs for a basic set up as ex B& O geezers with this ice mallarkey and 6 foot tall glass speakers.

Go to the site I refered Ruddy to. It gives a full explanation of the new digital amplification which I believe was dreamt up by B&O ...

But I could easily be wrong and if so some other member will tell us all

The ICEPower amps (stands for Intelligent Compact and Efficiant) work off the switching power supply principle. The power supplys switch on and off 400,000 times a second, and the rest is almost identical to a normal amp.

As for the BeoLab 1s (the tall column speakers) don't listen to them, they really aren't that fantastic. THE ABSOLUTE B&O speakers to listen to are the BeoLab 5s (left) and the BeoLab 3s. Both use ICEPower all the way thorugh, and it really shows.
