    We do like our big expensive toys that shout "look at me!" but I reckon these little amps can shame some of the bigger boys, giving 90% of the sound for 10% of the money. My little Amptastic Mini 1 is going nowhere, having proved itself as a capable stand-in, and as a permanent part of second set up
    Pining for the fjords? What kind of talk is that? And why did he fall flat on his back the minute I got him home?

    Dunno about 90% of the sound. The TPA3116 blew the Quad 707 away for sound quality and the Quad was damn good.

    All Luxmans are good but for the thick end of 6 large it needs to be better than just 'good'. You can buy a good amp for under a grand.
