Extra Info: This is an outstandingly well built and sounding 80 wpc hybrid integrated amplifier, which is dead silent in operation. Italian made, 12 AU7 triode based twin valve input and mosfet output stage. It was awarded the 6moons, 'Blue Moon Award" as Component of the Year. Sam Tellig of Stereophile also reviewed it, suggesting that it also be awarded their Component of the Year, but was disregarded as the magazine's hierachy who considered it was too close to being an entry level priced product. Includes the wooden remote control, manual and original packaging. The amplifier is fitted with a loudspeakershort protection circuit whose two internal jumpers can be removed for bypass if desired, achieving a slightly improved sound quality ( I have operated it in this manner). There is also an optional and very respectable MM/MC phono board (not included) which is available for about $200. The matched pair of 12AU7 valves are newish Genelex Gold Lions and would have about 10,000 hours use left in them.

It has produced fine sound quality with numerous loudspeakers - Spica TC 50s, Klipsch RP - M600s, a few B&W standmount speakers, Ensemble References, DeVore Orangutan 0/96s, all the Sonus faber Homages and all the original and "M" Cremona ranges. Original RRP $2,300.
