I have had the deHavilland Mercury for 7 months and it may be the most satisfying new component in my 40 years of audiophile indulgence. The Mercury 2 can only sound better because Kara would only make a change for the better! In brief the Mercury sounds real, real, real! Very nonfatiguing, full bodied, solid imaging, accurate timbre and in my sytem, no shortcomings. It just plain passes the music. I love jazz and opera and most of the time I am transported to the live performance. This has to be one of the best values in state of the art components. The tubes are way under stressed and probably last 10,000 hours, also cheap to replace!
