As I said to you on the phone, this amp really is close in sound to Alex Peychev's APL HiFi custom $150K tube amp. It certainly is better than my NuForce MCA20. Your amp provides the needed body of the music which was lacking in my previous amps which include: Modified Carver M-1.0t and M-500t, Nuforce, Parasound, Marsh Sound Designs, Emotiva, Yamaha, Wyred4Sound, Rotel and Outlaw Audio. Having recently heard a McCormack DNA 0.5, it sounded dull and congested compared to yours.
4 Channel SDS-450C
Thanks Tom, My Anedio has extremely high output and I need about 5-6db less for a good match. The amp is really everything you said it would be, easily besting my ASLs in triode mode. Absolutely stunning in all regards. Kindest regards and please let me know if I can provide references.
I had a good listen to the Amp the last two days , for around 6 Hours and I'm very impressed with the sound . My Marantz PM11S2 I thought was very good , but the SDS 440 blow me away , everything was much better then I ever heard before , from the top to the bass amazing detailed never heard the bass so controlled and the hights so open and clear, wonderful.
