Dope from Hope
btw....On my last visit to London in June I went to my friends home who has two Klipsch Horn (full range corner speakers) in his living room.
He recently bought a stereo amplifer (tubes) Class A/State of the Art which sells for only $600 USD.
The amplifer is only 2 Watts per channel! It delivered spl levels to 100db + or - 3db. It was clean, efficent AND most of all...musical.
I will post all of the info regarding this particular amplifier in the very near future as he is on holiday and will send me the link for the company, etc. that I will need to post properly.
The amplifier is the size of a small shoe box. It is physically checked by throwing it off a five story building ten times. (I suspect the tubes are removed prior). Also it is put in a machine that is used to mix paint in a can and shaken for 24 hours.
It has about 3 tubes and comes with life time guarantee.
