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
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 Â£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.
