I'm going to have a proper look at this. £650. Thanks for the idea audiolink. Dealer is frozenbanana.co.uk
Made even better with Cryo Treated valves.
We believe the use of SA coupling caps and deep cryo treated valves hugely improves this amp, better bass extension and nicer mids.
This amp is not to be confused with the 220v amps made for the Chinese domestic market.

40 watts per and 17kg that's not too lightweight. They have been highly recommended in other publications.

ariand amp you mention was well under 450quid to get a good review
then the oldest trick in the book they stuck 200quid onto the price
much better value from other uk suppliers --- just google
I would still prefer to go with someone like Icon Audio with proper UK backup warranty / support.
