    It's a modern Chinese implementation of the classic John Linsley Hood class A solid state circuit.

    And it sounds very good indeed.
    Needs 24 hours to warm up properly and suddenly the imaging takes on visceral presence and the 3D stage depth starts disappearing into the distance.
    I keep it on 24/7.

    In the stock internal pic you may notice a bit of tomfoolery - the Krell badge on the front.
    Some folks say it is a baby-Krell, and I wouldn't argue with that at all.
    It's a long term keeper for me, one of three amps I have that I use in rotation.

    Tonight's amplifier is what it has been during the summer: Quad 510 monoblocks. I have other amplifier options:

    Mark Levinson ML-2 monoblocks,

    'Monoblocked' Quad 405, upgraded by Duncan (tubehunter) to Keith Snook Level 3 and with improved power supplies,

    Quad 50E monoblocks,

    and

    Quad 405-2 with Dada dual power supply

    or

    Radford STA15 Mk.III stereo valve amplifier.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    As I live in a flat and am wary of upsetting the neighbours I use this little beasty with my Sennheiser HD650 headphones at night. It has been fully overhauled, sounds great and cost less than 100. I either listen to Spotify streamed from the PC or CDs and it does a pretty good job of powering the JBL Control ones I use with the PC .

    And this evening back to my Taiwanese el84 amp.



    Oh dear - my time with the lovely Nobsound amp (don't you just love the name ) has rather spoilt me
    el84 sounding thin and poorly organised in comparison.
    Happily a few weeks ago I ordered a quad of Reflektor el84 from somewhere out east and they were waiting to replace the JJ valves.
    Ah, music again! Richer tonally and much more coherent.

    I've got six pre-amps to choose from, four power amps (including valve monos) and two integrateds. And could be driving either vintage KEF's or Tannoys.

    Think I'll use the MingDa MC-9 TVC into a Monarchy Audio SM-70 Pro power amp and hook up the Tannoy Cheviot Mk.II's tonight. It's a great combo.

    Yes I think the law says that you have to have at least 6 Pre-Amps,I have 7 and 8 power amps (inc 2 sets of monobollocks) and 4 sets of speakers. Where do I collect my prize

    EDIT: Had forgotten about the stuff used for testing - Wharfedale Lintons, Mission 760i, Wharfedale Diamonds and Teac (tiny things that sound amazing when caned)....So that's 8 sets of speakers then.......
    Buy Bose...And get your parking validated!.
