With a little luck the ATC SIA2-150 review will be completed this weekend. It has been on hold for several weeks now as things popped up that robbed me of time or energy but it seems at least half of this weekend will be free so I'm going to step on the gas and see if I can get this one finished and written up. I know there's at least one SNA'er waiting on it.
It isn't a large amp, reasonably weighty though at 20kgs, but it can pump some serious power. As demonstrated at Terry's place it was one of the few amps that we tried on those VA Concert Grand speakers of his that took control and made the speakers perform. This places it in the same category as the Sansui 907 NRA, 907 Limited, ME-240, and Zeus Integrated. And that is some pretty decent company to be in.
The ATC suffers a little in my home system in that it doesn't impress as much as it did at Terry's place. I think this is one of those amps that reacts well to being asked to work harder so it will step up on lower impedance speakers. Since my Lenehans are fairly benign in impedance I believe the ATC is coasting a little. Still a very good amp but not quite as "Wow inducing" as it was on those VAs of Terry's.
Details to follow once my washing machine has finished it's job and quietened down a bit.
There is more info on the ATC SIA2-150 on page 5 of the thread Terry and I started, link below. Some rather nice pics too.

Here's a chance to grab a sale price on our ex-showroom model of the PrimaLuna Dialogue Premium integrated Amp.
PrimaLuna have made quite a name for themselves by making modern tube amplifiers that have the magical warmth and depth of tubes with modern world technologies applied to make them relatively fuss free without impacting sound.
The PrimaLuna Dialogue Premium Integrated is a beautiful looking and sounding amp... and we really enjoy the lovely, detailed full and open sound that this amp brings to nearly any speaker we have run off it in-store. This Amp has a fantastic amount of drive and saturation to the sound that helps bring a fantastic, real in-your-room sound that normally is only hinted at until hitting some pretty expensive equipment.
Featuring (5x) RCA stereo inputs, a Sub RCA output (and also with a Home Theatre Bypass mode) the PrimaLuna Premium Integrated is made easy to integrate into a two channel or Surround system.
The PrimaLuna range is all expertly designed and manufactured to a level that seems impossible for their price.... more importantly the sound has the sublime sound of tubes coupled to a neutral, airy top end without the roll off of many others.
Don't buy good. Buy perfect. Iconic. State of the art. Something that will still be relevant ten years from now and that is built to last a lifetime.
So how do you know if it's simply good or world-class?
a Stereophile Class A rating. Class A is defined as "Best attainable sound for a component of it's kind, almost without practical considerations" with practical considerations meaning at any price.
The Absolute Sound's Dick Olsher is possibly the most experienced and technically adept writer on staff when it comes to tube amplification. He declared "It is my current benchmark in integrated tube amplifiers." resulting in a 2014 Editor's Choice Award.

Item: One Exposure 2010S2D Integrated Amplifier
Location: Sunny Nanango
Price: $1450 (plus postage) I'll be using Aust Post.
Item Condition: Demo unit, presents as new (Terry and I were very easy on it, it was only fed premium analogue signals and only hooked up to the best speakers in the room)
Reason for selling: Bit of a story here. It was meant to go back to Andrew at Audiofix before he fled the country to attend some show or other but it didn't. So either it takes up space at my place until Andrew gets back or it gets sold off beforehand.
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra Info: Links to the manufacturers website, my SNA review and Terry's and my GTG results below. Comes with the remote control, power cord, original box and packing. Full warranty applies via Audiofix.
