I have one, sounds fine to me. No problems with the unit. I was told swapping the tubes improves the sound quality, but haven't bothered.
Didn't feel the unit was being promoted as a 25wpc full vacuum tube integrated for $125, so I knew what I was getting. (Not to mention the return policy.)
Never thought deeply about the cosmetics...
"Listen to music like you care about it. "
I'm not sure if that's a plus or a warning. *LOL*
"HEY, this thing's gots tubes, so it's Got to be Good, Right?!"
Well, at least it's relatively inexpensive. C'mon, someone buy it, flog it mercilessly. Uncledemp, bud, give it a big push and tell us what it does with what you're having it push....curious minds await your review.
Cosmetics, shemetics....most tube amps flaunt their fire bottles anyway...an audio phallic thing, IMHO...(Oh, stop....don't get all riled up over that...your amp(s) are Just Fine...*S*)
The 'local heretic' is intrigued....and feels you should be, too....;)
I bought another similar model, a little smaller @ 8.5 wpc for my office. Streaming Tidal through my iPhone and playing through a pair of very small back horn-loaded single driver Fostex (BK-40H, from Madisound) on my desk. I find the sound warm, detailed, especially vocals, and unexpectedly engaging. Hardly any bass but that’s because the drivers are tiny. I must say I’m very pleasantly surprised.
