I wanted to stay under $1,000 is possible. The Prima Luna and Cayin are just out of my reach at this time. I don't think I want to gamble on a an Ebay cheap amp either... I have read alot about the 102, seems to be a great value? i have read about reliability issues with the 302, but that has the auto-bias which is nice.
I have a 102 I used the last month ,and have used as a back-up for about 6 years,very sweet ,fun to listen to,makes bad recordings sound good,good recordings sound good,detail is ok and bass could be tighter,but it has a good balance overall,and is footstomping fun to listen to.And can be modded to sound very good,from what ive been told.Better tubes will make a nice improvement.You are making a good choice! Have fun!Ray
Jolida uses whatever works...they're not "point to point" hand wired esoterica which makes them more affordable. Since they offer a very wide range of products I assume they work with a wide range of speakers (my amp has 4 and 8 ohm transformer taps, as do many Jolidas). I've plugged my 502p into not only my everyday setup (Silverline Preludes) but other things including a pair of small-ish 6 ohm KEFs I use as studio monitors, a pair of pro audio PA speakers, an older pair of sealed bass reflex speakers, and the toes of a friend who passed out on my couch. Worked great with all of 'em.
