    Your big Tannoys a bit more sensitive though. And they're Tannoys! I've only got 90db. And a bigger room to drive. But it was clipping at levels beyond what I'd usually listen at. No problem with that given the price and that it doesn't make any claims to be a powerhouse. There is that sort of soft sheen over everything though. A bit like you get with SACD. If you like the character of SACD/DSD you'd like this amp.

    Pretty much no difference there then. But I heard it clipping when I was listening to 'Silk Degrees'. Not catastrophically but it was there on the peaks, so I had to back volume off a bit. That's a good album for showing up issues. Something about his vocals. It was still at a good volume level after I backed it off though and after that no problem.

    As I finished building my passive pre-amp recently, I thought I'd also make something to go with it, so this compact amplifier case is on the way.



    It's not as big as it looks in the picture. The front panel is nine inches across.

    I've ordered some TPA3116 bits that will be going in it!

    That was quick!

    The amplifier case just arrived. Six days from China.



    I'll unpack and assemble it later for evaluation.

    I just need to wait for the rest of the components to get here.

    Not impressed with the quality of the amplifier case received the other day. The front panel has a defective surface grind finish. Seller has agreed to send a replacement panel from China. We'll see how that works out. I like the case and can always get the front panel powder coated if need be, more aggro though.

    That's not good is it? Makes me wonder if anyone has a proper look at these before they are sent out.

    My experience is no Chinese case is 100% perfect, always a tiny ding, offset hole or blemish in the finish for instance.
