It has been 3 months since I started using this amp. I use a Bel Canto pre3 so I can switch between my Shanling t200a and Bel Canto pl-2. This amp is very impressive. It is very clear and "warm". It powers 2 sets of speakers easily (ohms 5mkII'S,BRSE HR-1s) Classical, Jazz, Rock ,new age, lows, highs you name it this amp is very clean and delivers the oomph needed. If you get the chance listen to one. This is a small operation. In the summer months I am using it exclusively in place of my tubes. Any one out there tried one of these great amps? I would really like some other opinions.
