    Nice review. Just curious here, how come the proto/first build is 90w and the final product 55w?

    Good question Simon, I was half expecting it.

    The case for the final build is smaller so a smaller mains transformer is fitted.

    The difference in power levels equates to a drop of only 2dB, which in real terms is minimal.

    The size of the monoblocks did surprise me actually. Very nicely styled though.

    I am just listening to "Toy" by Yello, and I don't think I have heard my system perform better than it is now.
    It is so clear and natural sounding with a very wide and immersive soundstage that it makes it very easy to lose yourself into the music.

    They really were a fantastic listen. I think alan said "ive never heard the Beatles sound so good" he was right too. Phenomenal performance and a very good price point too.

    It has a remote volume control.
    What more do you need?

    Im sure one can be fitted but theres no need in my view. Such a nice bot of kit should be handled.
