    It sounded bloody lovely at the owners house.
    You had the integrated for a short time ?

    I sold that to Shane, was an original Kraken in the green Hammerite paint. Lovely little amp, sweet sounding. I changed the power supply caps but other than that it was all original. Good quality parts used too.

On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio”

    It looks IMO absolutely awful - sort of 'Gothic Bling'. How you could even photograph that abomination next to the sublime Braun kettle/coffee maker is beyond me?

    Shame, because the Kraken actually sounds pretty good.
