When I got my first Berning designed amp (ZH230) I immediately noticed a lack of transformer grunge that I didn’t even realize was there before and I had a rather expensive transformer type amp.
at the time. The clarity from the lack of noise was a little shocking. To say a veil was removed is an understatement, more like a wool curtain was removed. I was hooked for life.
I own Janszen zA2.1 Valentina speakers and when I first got them had a hard time matching up a good amp that I was happy with. What I found is that my current ZOTL40 amp is a match made in heaven. There is a synergy with electrostats and Berning amps that is rather amazing. The fact that a 40 watt tube amp can sufficiently power inefficient speakers like mine is icing on the cake.
